Glacier Hiking and South Coast Adventure from Reykjavík

Join this expedition to the South Coast with a hike on Sólheimajökull glacier. We see Seljalandsfoss waterfall, its neighbor the majestic Skogafoss, mighty waves of Reynisfjara beach, also known as The Black Sand Beach and walk on top of Sólheimajökull.

Grab your hiking boots and get ready, because you’re going to hike Sólheimajökull glacier in southern Iceland. This is a comprehensive glacier tour, where you’ll learn about these massive natural phenomena from your guide and be provided with all the necessary equipment to get some exercise in full comfort and safety. This tour is for anyone looking to experience one of the natural wonders of the earth. 

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall which you can walk behind and get a unique point of view while feeling the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. It’s an automatic Instagram blockbuster. Right next to Seljalandsfoss is his little brother Gljúfrabúi, a smaller waterfall hidden in a narrow gorge which is accessible only by balancing on small stones in the river.

Skógafoss Waterfall

The pearl of the South Coast has to be Skógafoss waterfall. From the 60-meter-high cliffs of East Eyjafjöll mountains, the waterfall pours down making, arguably, the most photogenic waterfall in the country. Over the years, the water has carved itself into the mountain, tucking the beautiful waterfall into a small gorge. Add rainbows forming in the waterfall’s spray and you have yourself a Kodak moment. Alongside the waterfall lies a staircase up to the cliff with views looking down into the gorge and onto the waterfall. The 527 steps up to the top provide a fantastic warm-up for the glacier hike!

Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull Glacier

Here the adventure continues at Sólheimajökull glacier which is part of the 4th biggest glacier in Iceland, Mýrdalsjökull. We will provide helmets, harnesses, crampons and ice axes before hiking on the ice for 1 to 1,5 hours. Our glacier guides are all trained and licensed and provide a safe, entertaining and informative hike. A spectacular experience to learn more about this breathtaking and increasingly rare natural phenomenon.

Reynisfjara, the Black Sand Beach

Heading further east, we visit the black sand beach of Reynisfjara where the Atlantic coastline presents massive waves hitting the unique basalt columns in the cliffs above the sand. Rock pillars in the water and the cliffs of Dýrhólaey are seen in the distance. This area of the south is also a paradise for bird lovers, as puffins and dozens of other unique species nest on top of these cliffs in the summertime from June to August.

Are you ready to join us for this incredible adventure? We are steering clear of the crowds while packing a full day of incredible experiences in this once in a lifetime opportunity to see all the powerful southern waterfalls, hike on top of a glacier, and see beaches with black sand – all in one day!
