All about the trip
We begin our tour with the most powerful and beautiful waterfalls of Iceland. Urriðafoss, “The Trout Fall”, is the largest and the most spectacular waterfall of river Þjórsá. It is also one of the most voluminous waterfalls in Iceland. Seljalandsfoss is a picturesque waterfall of an unusual high of 65m, irrigated by the river Seljalandsá, itself fueled by Eyjafjallajökull glacier. You will be dazzled by this magnificent site, the power of the water, the beautiful rainbows which go through the waterfall due to the sunlight and the vapor droplets. Gljúfurárfoss waterfall is also called Gljúfrabúi, this interesting waterfall is carefully hidden behind a narrow opening in the mountain. Next up is Skógafoss waterfall. One of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland and one of the five largest in the country. Getting so close to the base of such a large waterfall is a quite rare experience. You can also enjoy it from above, as there are stairs that lead to the top. The view from there is stunning. On sunny days, you can see a single or even double rainbow which is formed with the powerful water splashing.
We will continue our tour with Sólheimajökull, a popular branch of Mýrdalsjökull, which is one of the largest glaciers of Iceland. You can experience the natural contrasts of the region when vast stretches of black sand and craters suddenly give a way to bright walls of white ice, with blue highlights. Huge and majestic.
Dyrhólaey is our next checkpoint. The name Dyrhólaey means “door hill island” in Icelandic. This curious rock is forms a door, an opening to the ocean. It is also a natural park, sanctuary of birds, where you can observe many species especially the puffins, living symbol of Iceland.
Our stop in Reynisfjara will be a memorable one. This black sand beach is often considered one of the most beautiful in the world. From there you can observe the Reynisdrangar, these lava columns sculpted by the waters, which emerge from the ocean.
Vík í Mýrdal is the most southerly village in the country. Beyond Vík í Mýrdal, there is nothing except the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Its church, a white building with a red roof located on a hill, proudly dominates the modest houses of this village. The ocean on one side, the imposing cliffs of Mount Reynisfjall on the other side.
