In this unique activity tour you will hike a glacier, descend into a lava cave and ride a fat bike to the famous plane wreck on Sólheimasandur. You will see the spectacular south coast waterfalls and bath in a geothermal pool. All in one day! We are steering clear of the crowds and experience a full day of incredible attractions in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

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.

DC3 Airplane Wreck on Sólheimasandur

After the glacier hike we head out to a black sand beach with a plane wreck. This DC3 airplane from the U.S. Navy ran out of fuel in 1973 and crash landed about 4 km from the main road. We will cycle down to the wreck in style with the coolest fat bikes ever.

Seljavallalaug geothermal pool

By now, you’ll be waiting to swim in Seljavallalaug geothermal pool, which has been chosen one of the best pools in the world by the guardian. It was built in 1923 in a beautiful valley surrounded by steep mountains and inspiring lava rock formations. Just make sure to bring along your swimwear to relax in the midst of tranquil scenery. (Due to the lack of daylight the pool is not visited in the winter time, October to April)

Secret Lava Cave

But we still have our final blow! Get ready to explore the inside of lava cave which formed in a volcanic eruption 5000 years ago. Equipped with helmets and flash lights we will scramble over big lava rocks and crawl into the darkness of the Icelandic underground.

How does this sound? Are you ready to join us for this incredible adventure?

The perfect route to check the coolest places in the South!
