We head straight for the south coast to find our first stop, Seljalandsfoss. Seljalandsfoss is just over 60m surrounded by beautiful cliffs and slopes. There is a footpath behind the waterfall where depending on road conditions we can actually take a walk behind the waterfall for a different view. From the same location, we will see Eyjafjaljokull Glacier, the notorious glacier-covered volcano which erupted in 2010.
We will continue eastward along the south coast to find the vast Myrdalsjokull Glacier, which feeds into Solheimajokull, and then further down onto the south coast. Here we will take a fun, safe, easy to manage glacier hike, where you can also see how the landscape has been chiseled by the glacier as it forms and retreats.
You will be accompanied by an expert glacier guide who will give you clear and precise safety instructions before setting off.
We provide you with the equipment you need: helmets, crampons, ice axes and safety lines, things to keep you safe on this blue ice adventure.
We will start to head back towards Reykjavik after the hike, stopping by Skogafoss, which is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland. Also measures around 60m in drop, it boasts a width of 25m. On sunny days it’s not unusual to see double rainbow through the spray created by the waterfall.
Glacier Hike on Solheimajokull glacier is optional and is offered at an additional price.
Also please note that this activity is subject to weather conditions.
