Waterfalls and Volcano Adventure with Snowmobile or Glacial Walk/Climb Option

On this adventure you will witness first hand just how massive the powers are that come together here in Iceland. Water, ice and volcanoes are a few things Iceland has enough of creating an overabundance of energy which can be seen on this awesome South Coast Adventure.


Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Most of the waterfalls we will see on this tour are on the perimeter of Eyjafjallajokull Glacier. Seljalandsfoss has a scenic narrow drop of 60 meters into a glacial lagoon which gives visitors a unique sight. More adventurous visitors (which we are) can venture behind the falls for an even more breath-taking view from behind the water drop. We may decide to leave this stop until the end of the tour as the sun doesn't shine until the afternoon on the waterfall itself, which may make for a better photo opportunity of this beautiful site.


Skógafoss and Kvernufoss Waterfalls

Another waterfall did you say? We will also stop at the slightly wider Skógafoss. This is one of Iceland’s most picturesque waterfalls and probably one of the most photographed one: a true symbol of the natural forces of Iceland. There is a wonderful opportunity to hike up the almost 400 step walkway up to the side of the waterfall to get a viewing from the top which can make for great photos. Don't be surprised to see people walking with day packs as Skógafoss is the beginning/end of the popular hike across Fimmvörðuháls and into Thorsmörk, about an 8-hour hike.

Just a bit further down the road, we have an option of visiting another waterfall that is not visible from the road, Kvernufoss Waterfall. Hidden a few hundred meters in a small valley, like Seljalandfoss, Kvernufoss gives us the opportunity to walk behind it but with the added bonus of having fewer people around.


Dyrhólaey Cliff

The main attraction on this adventure is waterfalls but we will also look further east to Dyrhólaey and Reynisfjara Beach. Dyrhólaey, used to be an island thousands of years ago when the shoreline was further inland but is now a peninsula and easily recognizable due to its iconic cliff extending from the side with a large hole through the bottom of it. In the summer time, it's also a wonderful opportunity for our guests to catch a glimpse of the little cute puffins Iceland has become famous for.


Reynisfjara Black Beach

Further east is Reynisfjara Beach and its iconic pillars, Reynisdrangar. Without a doubt, Reynisdrangar has become one of Iceland's most iconic sites as they have been featured in many Hollywood films due to their formidable size and eerie needle-like appearance protruding through the shoreline. The surf at Reynisfjara is strong, unpredictable and in some cases lethal, so please use care when walking on the beach, especially for guests that are traveling with young children.

Finally, an option is to have a look at the remains of an abandoned DC-3 airplane which crashed in Sólheimasandur in the 70s before we head back to Reykjavik. Please note that as of the spring of 2016, the landowner has limited automobile traffic towards the wreckage, however, you do have the option of walking to the DC-3 with an estimated 45 minutes each way.

Another option to visit the DC-3 is to take an ATV tour along the Black Sand Beaches, where a stop at the airplane is included on the tour.
