Your adventure of south Iceland will begin at 8:00 a.m. We’ll pick you up from your hotel or at a nearby pick up point. Once at the waterfall, you’ll take a short hike, where a unique photo opportunity of the waterfall awaits. The waterfall is 196 feet (60 m) tall, consequently, you will encounter occasional water spouting, so make sure you have waterproof clothes.
Solheimajokull Glacier and Reynisfjara Beach
Traveling onwards through the stunning scenery of southern Iceland, we’ll arrive at Sólheimajökull glacier. Glacier hiking should definitely be on everyone’s bucket list, and there is no better place to do it than Solheimajokull. Once there, your certified glacier guide will get you geared up and instruct you on the safety guidelines. Together, we’ll become glacier explorers and make our way across the glacier tongues–take note to listen for the ancient crackling sounds of the ice on the way.
Next, we’ll be heading to Reynisfjara – the world-famous, iconic black sand beach. The beach is considered to be the most beautiful beach in Iceland because of the majestic basalt columns just off the shore, roaring waves of Atlantic ocean, and unusual black sand. Local legend says that the basalt columns looking at you from the ocean were once trolls pulling ships to the shore. Once the dawn gleamed over them, they turned into these magnificent rock formations. Don’t forget your camera, as the scenery here is remarkably picturesque.
Once you have a picture with Reynisfjara’s magnificent trolls, we’ll drive on to the majestic and one of the tallest waterfalls in Iceland – Skógafoss. A pathway of 527 steps leads up to the crest of the waterfall, giving you a front-row view of the South Coast lowland below. According to another legend, the first Viking settler, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure chest in the cave behind Skógafoss, so it’s definitely worth the visit. Once we find the treasure, we’ll head back to Reykjavik, have dinner and get ready for our next experience – the Northern Lights.
The Northern Lights
The Northern Lights phenomenon heavily depend on the weather conditions, so the exact place we’ll go to is unknown until the last minute. The moment you spot the first hint of glimmering bright colors in the dark sky is always spellbinding. Red auroras, from luminescent orange to flaming rose, and lustrous violet auroras are more common in Iceland than anywhere else in the world, so get your camera ready and prepare to experience something out of this world.
After the unforgettable light show, we will take you back to the Reykjavik around midnight.
This tour departs at 8am and 11:45am.
