All about the trip
Visit the south coast of Iceland and go hiking on a glacier with us, then visit the incredible waterfalls of Skógar and Seljalandsfoss on one of the must-do day tours from Reykjavík. Step on board our all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets, you can use our GPS sentitive audio guide, available in 10 languages. So, if you wish to know interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit on the tour in a language that you are likely to be comfortable with, that is possible. On board, you will also find a USB charger and free WiFi. If you have any questions during the tour about our small country, you can ask the host who will happily assist you.
First stop will be the rugged Sólheimajökull Glacier. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier that flows from the main ice-cap of Mýrdalsjökull where the mighty Katla Volcano rests. You will walk on the glacier, wearing special crampons on your shoes and explore the amazing cracks, crevasses and ice expertly lead by a certified glacier guide. The experience is definitely one of the best in Iceland. You only need to hike 20 minutes, and suddenly you will find yourself standing on top of a few hundred meters of ice, but still only slightly above sea-level.
The next destination is the stunning Skógarfoss waterfall. You will be able to feel the water-spray on your face. You can also climb up the hill (527 steps) to see the majestic 60-meter high waterfall from above and witness the water plummet down on it’s way to the Atlantic Ocean.
Last but not least, we will visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall. That is one of Iceland’s most famous attractions. To get a different perspective you can take a walk from behind and look through the wall of water.
In order to reach all of our incredible destinations, we will make our way through fertile farming lands and pass by small villages. The area is known for its Viking history and heritage guarded by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla Volcano dwell with their all-powerful presence. On clear days you will also have a great view of the Westman Islands where the renowned volcanoes lie. These volcanos caused the islander’s great troubles in the 1970s.What Wikipedia Says Watch on Youtube
