What Will You Do

Seljalandsfoss

We will pay a visit to the powerful guardians of the southern highlands, the Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, and the lesser known Gljúfrabúi which is partially hidden behind an enormous cliff whose dominant presence lends impressive atmosphere to the scenery. First stop: Seljalandsfoss. Bring a raincoat and you’ll be able to make the short hike behind the falls. The scene behind the fall and the trembling ground from the power of the falling water makes for an automatic photo blockbuster!

Skógafoss

Further east along the coast is Skógafoss waterfall. Skógafoss is an incredibly picturesque sight: tucked in a little gorge, the river Skógá tumbles down a 60 meter high cliff before continuing down the banks towards the Atlantic Ocean. Alongside the gorge, a staircase can take  you to the shelf above the waterfall for stunning views. If the sky is clear you might see Vestmannaeyjar on the horizon.

Glacier Hike in Skaftafell

We will hike an outlet glacier spawning from the largest glacier in the country, Vatnajökull. A spectacular experience and an opportunity to learn more about this breathtaking natural phenomenon. Skaftafell area has been used as a filming location for many famous TV shows and films, such as Batman Begins, Game of Thrones.

The Glacier Lagoon - Jökulsárlón

First stop on day two is the glacier lagoon, Jökulsárlón. Jökulsárlón is a 200m deep glacier water lagoon fed by the melting of Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull. Enormous icebergs also fall from Breiðamerkurjökull all  year round so the lagoon is usually filled with ice blocks that floats south towards the Atlantic Ocean.

Diamond Beach

On the other side of the road, the icebergs from Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon float into the Atlantic Ocean where they are quickly thrown back to shore by the tide and winds. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice blocks in all shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight. The ice itself comes in all shades of white and blue forming  beautiful contrasts.

The Black Sand Beach - Reynisfjara

Next up is the black beach of Reynisfjara, iconic for its perfectly shaped hexagonal basalt columns and smooth black boulders. There, the Atlantic ocean crashes on land in large, powerful waves, that tend to act innocent until they rush unexpectedly onto land with a roar and a hiss, threatening to yank the legs from under whoever is in their way. Looming ver the beach are the great Reynisdrangar rock formations, patient giants of the olden days, guardians of the coast.
