strong>South Coast Waterfalls
Your first stop of the day is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s greatest attractions. Here you have the opportunity to walk behind the magnificent wall of water and feel the power generated by the fall. Seljalandsfoss is an excellent place for a memorable photoshoot. You will visit the hidden waterfall, Gljúfrabúi and enjoy a short hike between the two waterfalls.
Experience all those incredible places as you pass through the fertile farming lands and small villages of south Iceland, an area rich of Viking history and heritage, watched over by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days, you’ll have an excellent view of these renown volcanoes along with the Westman Islands just off the coast.
Glacier Hike & Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach
Next step on your journey is a giant step for those that have never set foot on a glacier. Hear the ancient ice crack as you safely enjoy your hike on the glacier tongue with your certified glacier guide. After the thrill of the glacier, head for Reynisfjara where you can leisurely stroll along the black sand beach known for its famous basalt columns and caverns. Witness the Reynisdrangar cliffs and basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea which Icelandic legends say are mischievous trolls turned into rock by the rising sun.
End this great day tour with a stop at the majestic Skógafoss Waterfall. Here you can walk right up to the 60-meter high thundering waterfall and feel the spray on your face. You can even walk up the 527 steps to gain a bird’s eye view of the cascading water and rainbows.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
