You will visit the majestic Skógafoss at Skógar and the Beautiful Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall that you can walk behind and through to the other side. The black sand beach Reynisfjara where the Atlantic Ocean hammers the coastline with all its power. The Black basalt has been shaped into unique, different formations, most notably the famous Reynisdrangar. You will then have the additional pleasure of visiting the Sólheimajokull glacier towering above on your route.

Tour Highlights:

  • South coast of Iceland
  • Reynisfjara black sand beach
  • Seljalandsfoss waterfall
  • Skogafoss waterfall
  • Reynisdrangar sea cliffs
  • Solheimajokull glacier

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

One of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls is, without a doubt, the Seljalandsfoss waterfall due to the reason that it’s possible to walk behind the waterfall and get great pictures and experience the power, mist, and the beautiful view behind it.

Skogafoss Waterfall

Driving east along the cliffs of Eyjajökull to the magnificent Skogafoss waterfall. You will get the chance to take great photos and take a small hike up to the top of Skogafoss to witness the power from the waterfall above. It drops down 25 m (80ft), and it’s one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls. If you visited while the sun is shining, you’d be able to see beautiful rainbows from the strong spray of mist.

The Black Beach Reynisfjara

The Black Lava Beach is formed long basalt cliffs or columnar igneous rock formed at the cooling surface will tend to be propagated down the lava as it cools, creating long, geometric columns. Thus, as lava cools to form basalt, it may crack in a hexagonal (or other) shape and include columns. Reynisfjara Black Beach has mighty waves that have helped shaped the fantastic cliffs—making them one of the area’s most sought-after attractions to visit. The cliffs bare many interesting birds; among other species, you might see fulmar, guillemot, razorbill, gannet, and various types of seagulls. By summertime, the cliffs are filled with puffins.

Glacier Solheimajokull

Solheimajökull is an outlet glacier from Myrdalsjökull, which is the 4th largest glacier in Iceland. We will have the chance to drive a detour to the edge of the magnificent glacier so you will be able to experience the unique shape of the formation of water, mountains, and ice.
