Join this expedition to explore the South Coast & go Glacier Hiking. From the magnificent Sólheimajökull Glacier, the photographer magnet Seljalandsfoss waterfall, to the mighty waves of the Atlantic Oceans at the Reynisfjara black sand beach, you are guaranteed to enjoy more than what meets the eye as our guides are fun and creative. We have also arranged the itinerary in a way that will help us to avoid the main crowd.

Seljalandsfoss

The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind and feel the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. Right next to it is the waterfall Gljúfrabúi which is hidden in a small gorge. To see the waterfall you have to balance over stones in the river.

Skógafoss

Prepare to meet the pearl of the south coast, Skógafoss waterfall. It is dropping 60 metres from a cliff and producing a lot of mist which makes beautiful rainbows in the sunshine. Try to warm up for the glacier by running up the 527 steps to the top!

Sólheimajökull Glacier Hike

The adventure continues at Sólheimajökull glacier which is part of the 4th biggest glacier in Iceland, Mýrdalsjökull. We will get some helmets, harnesses, crampons and ice axes and hike on the ice for 1 to 1,5 hours. A spectacular experience to learn more about this breathtaking natural phenomenon.

Reynisfjara (Black Sand Beach)

We will visit the black sand beach of Reynisfjara where big waves are hitting the shore. You can see basalt columns in the cliffs, rock pillars in the water and the cliffs of Dýrhólaey in the distance. But this beach is also a paradise for bird lovers because puffins are nesting on top of the rocks in the summertime from June to August.

Follow the route to the perfect tour to the South!
