Breathtaking scenery with some of Iceland’s most famous active volcanoes.


Tour description:

Our first stop is Skogafoss Waterfall. It is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the country and was even featured in Game of Thrones. His 60m drop will keep you speechless for sure. Your guide will tell you all about the hidden treasure chest behind the waterfall and with some luck, you will be the first one to find it.

Now it's time to hit the road again. After a short ride, we stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach. The beach was once rated as one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world and as soon as you put a foot on the beach, you will know why. Basalt columns and the well-known Reynisdrangar rock formations await you. Your guide will tell you all the interesting stories and sagas that are connected to this place.

Having now reached our most southern point, this charming fishing village is the center of the southern region. On the tour, we will pay a visit to the church where we can enjoy a great view of the coastline.

Next up is the magical Dyrhólaey. When we stop here you can hardly picture a more grandiose view. To the south, we have the Atlantic Ocean, the glaciers and mountains rule the north, in the east you see black lava columns and to the west is an other-worldly Black Sand Beach.

Besides waterfalls, Iceland is also known for glaciers. 11% of the country is covered by ice. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier coming down the fourth biggest glacier of Iceland, called Mýrdalsjökull.

Heading back in the direction of Reykjavik, our last stop will be the ever-popular Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall lays underneath the well-known Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that erupted in 2010. If conditions allow, we take a walk behind the waterfall’s curtain before paying a visit to its nearby cousin Gljúfrabúi, found hidden from view in the mountainside.
