Due to a mixup, we didn't get to do the version of the tour that included the glacier hike, the main reason we'd chosen this tour. The other parts of the tour were great and we particularly liked the waterfall that we could walk behind. Tania was a great tour guide for the day!

Recommend Grayline and this tour! Really worth it!

We were lucky to have beautiful weather, which made the trip all the more picturesque. Slightly long drives between some of the stops, but other than that good timing. The places were overrun by other tourists, which deducts a little from the experience (hypocritical, I know)

Itinerary

ITINERARY

This tour takes you to south Iceland travelling through lush farmlands with views of powerful volcanoes and glaciers, black sand beaches and thundering waterfalls.

First in a series of natural landmarks is Skógafoss waterfall, arguably the country‘s most iconic waterfall and one of south Iceland‘s star attraction. Viking legends tell of a treasure buried in a cave behind the waterfall.

From Skógafoss we travel east to Reynisfjara beach that features the dramatic and imposing Garðar, a pyramid of basalt columns known as the “organ pipes” that jostle the surrounding cliffs and caves.

From Reynisfjara you travel west to Sólheimajökull glacier for a 2 hour walk in a spellbinding glacier landscape. Combination of expansive views, jagged peaks, cool blue glaciers and wide-open sky provide a steady stream of amazing photographic opportunities.

Heading back to Reykjavik from Sólheimajökull your last but by no means the last is the iconic Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can literally walk behind a curtain of water which is certainly a moment you’ll want to capture on camera.
