Description

Stretching from the greater Reykjavik in the west to the glacier lagoon in the east, The South Shore area is a paradise for travelers who love exploring every possible corner on foot. You’ll be picked up from your accommodation and taken on board our jeep, heading towards the first major attraction – the majestic Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Get ready to have your breath taken away by one of the most photographed features in all of Iceland! Also, make sure to have a decent breakfast in the morning as we’re in for some serious walking. Seljalandsfoss can be fully encircled by following a pathway that stretches around it, with rocks and cliffs hiding a wide cavern inviting you to explore its mysteries. Continuing north, after about a 10-minute stroll you’ll find a cave that hides another treasure, Gljufrabui. Let’s put on waterproof clothes, as there might be some “drizzle” waiting at the entrance. Smaller in size, but no less magnificent than other icelandic beauties, the waterfall will provide you yet another mystical experience of walking up its gorge. It’s an excellent spot to take a short break and admire the beauty of nature in peace. After that, our fearless vehicle will take you to another powerful waterfall, Skógafoss. Here’s a real hero, not once and not twiced featured in popular motion pictures. No wonder – its astounding height and seemingly endless cascades of water make Skógafoss one of Iceland’s biggest players. The amount of spray produced by the running water paints a gorgeous rainbow on the sky whenever the sun peeks out from behind the clouds. If you ever seen “Vikings” then you’ll surely recognize Skógafoss as the first wonder spotted by Floki when he discovers Iceland. The astounding views will make you feel like you yourself are in a movie! Time for a little change of scenery. Moving towards Dyrhólaey promontory you’ll admire the impressive coastline and a wide, jaw-dropping landscape of the Katla glacier. Having reached the hill, the view from the cliffs will reveal the wild beauty of Reynisfjara Beach with its characteristic, black sand. Going down, you’ll see the impressive large basalt columns sitting on the shoreline in a close up. The local legend says they were once evil trolls, trying to pull ships from the ocean. The mighty sun eventually turned them into stones to stop this mischief. Last but not least, ladies and gentlemen, it's time to visit the picturesque fishing village of Vik. No better place to recharge after a fun-filled day. Still hungry for more adventures? Listen closely to our guide when in the car – he’ll mention some hidden gems!
