How to get a grasp of Iceland’s uniqueness within just one-day tour? Our best suggestion is to go South with us, onboard of our comfortable multivan.
We will start by going to see Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss – two magnificent waterfalls, situated on the cliffs of the former coastline. You will be able to observe how abruptly a typical Icelandic flatland turns into a spectacular mountain ridge. Apart from that, you will get a chance to go behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall, getting a backstage experience of a remarkable natural phenomenon.
After sensual and aesthetic feast you'll have an option to face the ice at Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull icecap. It is a rugged glacial tongue punctured with crevasses and ever-changing ice formations. Hiking and ice climbing is included in the tour price.
Next stop is Dyrhólaey, a small peninsula of volcanic origin. Facing the peninsula is a gigantic black arch of frozen lava. It's also a perfect spot for admiring Mýrdalsjökull glacier in the north and the coastline to the west. In the summertime, you can get more familiar with puffins as many of them nest on the cliffs of Dyrhólaey.
From here we will head back to civilisation and stop at a small, charming village of Vik, where we will enjoy some local specialities.
Another breathtaking attraction is a walk on one of the most extraordinary beaches in the world. It’s called Reynisfjara and it’s covered in black, volcanic sand. It is also a location of an enormous natural rock stack made of basalt rock columns, with a huge cave-like indent facing Atlantic ocean. It is a perfect spot to appreciate volcano’s creative potential. In the east it is embodied in Reynisdrangar, basalt rock needles, jutting upwards from the sea. Legend says that these were trolls once, turned to stone by rising sun.
