  • Look down on Skógafoss waterfall - an unusual perspective
  • Feel the mist from Seljalandsfoss waterfall on your skin
  • See the jagged peaks and expansive views while hiking over Sólheimajökull glacier


First up on the itinerary is one of Iceland’s biggest waterfalls, Skógafoss. Those who are up for the challenge, can climb all 527 steps to the observation deck for a unique perspective. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a sunny day and see big rainbows through the waterfall mist. Then you head over to the star of the tour, Sólheimajökull glacier, where you'll hike for one hour through an otherworldly glacial landscape.  On the way back, you'll stop at Seljalandsfoss, one of the South Coast’s most prominent waterfalls. Walking behind it and feeling the mist from the cascading water on your skin is the perfect ending to this South Coast adventure.
