Tour Description

This tour is an excellent choice for seeing the most picturesque parts of Iceland. You will get to experience two powerful waterfalls, a massive glacier, on which we will hike, and finally the astonishing Black Beach. 

                 Itinerary 

We will pick you up from your accommodation with our 4×4 vehicle. It takes around 2 hours to arrive to the first attraction. 

Our first stop will be the amazing Seljalandfoss waterfall. The waterfall is loved by travelers as you can actually walk behind it!   

   After that, we will head to the gigantic Skógafoss waterfall. Expect to be soaked from head to toe if you venture too close! You can climb to the top of the waterfall and you will be rewarded with an awe-inspiring view over south Iceland’s coastline.

Next, after just 20′ of drive we will arrive to the most adventurous part of our trip, to our lovely glacier! We will take a 20-min walk from the parking lot to the spectacular glacier’s tongue where we’ll do a safety briefing instruction and help you gear up. 

   The hike is relatively easy and can be done by almost anybody. On the top of the glacier you will be able to experience the world like never before! 

   Then, we will head back to the car where you can relax, enjoy Icelandic snacks, and have a warm cup of coffee.

   After a 35′ drive you will arrive to Reynisfjara/Black beach! That is a beach like no other. Watch out for the waves and take awesome photos!        

   Finally, we will head back to Reykjavík. It is a 2 1/2 hours drive and our guide will drop you right in front of your accommodation.

  We hope to see you soon!
