Glacier Walk & Waterfall Sightseeing

Along this epic family friendly Reyjkavik tour, pass fertile farmlands, beaches, villages in the south, and encounter a land steeped in Viking heritage.

Upon reaching the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, dropping 200 feet over cliffs forming the magnificent coastline, take the opportunity to walk behind the massive fall.

For the next part of your tour, your certified glacier guide will equip you to hike the Solheimajokull glacier. Walk on this phenomenal 'glacial tongue' formed from ancient frozen waters and capture your moment on this raw, ever changing wonder.

Thereafter, you'll stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, famed for its basalt columns and caverns. Nearby, the gigantic Reynisdrangar cliffs rise from the sea. Icelandic legends state that these formations were feisty trolls turned to rock by the sun.

Having checked glacier hiking off your bucket list, you will be escorted to the wonderful Skogafoss waterfall. Perched along the Skoga River, cresting over the cliffs, this majestic waterfall consistently produces some of the most profound rainbows. Legend has it that the Vikings buried a treasure behind its rushing waters.

While hiking through this vibrant valley, be sure to take in the stunning mountain ridge enveloping you. On a clear day, you'll see the Eyjafjallajokull and Hekla Volcanoes along with the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just off the coast. Resembling an overturned boat with its keel made of craters, Hekla is one of Iceland's most active volcanos.

This leisurely, family friendly hike is an ideal way to see a wide range of "Golden Circle" sights. Book this Reykjavik tour now for an incredible Iceland experience at a low price.
