Description

It was Led Zeppelin who once sang about Iceland “We come from the land of the ice and snow from the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow” in their famous hit ‘Immigrant song’. These lyrics come from the reputation Iceland has as being a country born of fire and Ice, a reputation that will become incredibly clear to you as you journey along our countries southern coast where glaciers and volcanoes await you.

On what is perhaps one of our most popular day tours you will get to see black sand beaches at Reynisfjara, glorious waterfalls (including one with a unique surprise) in the form of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss, Glaciers, Volcanoes and the sleepy little village of Vik

For nature lovers, this is NOT a tour to miss!

  • Skógafoss Waterfall
  • Sólheimajökull Glacier

Itinerary

Start of the Tour from Reykjavík

After pick-up the bus starts from here on the journey.

Pick-up from accommodations and special Tour Bus Stops in central Reykjavik is between 8:00 and 8:30. Then the buses meet at 10-11 Kringlan and the tour departs from there at 8:30.

1. Hvolsvöllur

A small breakfast stop is made at a gas station in Hvolsvöllur.

This stop is aimed to get a small breakfast if needed and to use the bathroom before heading to the first attraction of the tour.

2. Skógafoss Waterfall

See huge amounts of water coming down from this waterfall!

Skógafoss Waterfall is 25 meters wide and 60 meters high. Experience the noise water can make falling down a cliff and be maybe lucky by seeing rainbows formed by the spray of this natural wonder.

3. Vík í Mýrdal

Welcome to the lovely village of Vík!

With only just about 320 inhabitants does Vík have a lot to offer. You can either have some lunch in one of the restaurants or take a short walk to the beach to have a look at the famous Reynisdrangar.

4. Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach

And here are we finally at the famous Black Sand Beach!

In Reynisfjara, or Black Sand Beach, you get to experience the raw and alluring force of the North Atlantic and its masterfully shaped basalt column cliffs. The site is equally beautiful as it is dangerous, and should be approached with a healthy level of awe and respect.

5. Sólheimajökull Glacier

Touch a real glacier at Sólheimajökull Glacier!

We take a short walk up to the glacier snout of Sólheimajökull, a sublet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, where you can witness the dynamics of Icelandic glaciers, their formation, behaviour and rapid melting.

6. Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Did you ever stand behind a waterfall? Give it a try at Seljalandsfoss!

This magnificent waterfall is 66 meters high and let's you even walk around it. But be careful: You might be soaked afterwards. On a good day you will also be seeing the Westman Islands or Vestmannaeyjar from here.
