Meet your driver and guide in the lobby of your hotel at 8:30am. Begin your day with a visit to the two great waterfalls of the South Coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, continuing to visit lesser known and more secret waterfalls including Glufrabui, Kvernufoss, and Irafoss. From there you'll drive beneath the great Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and the Myrdalsjokull glacier cap. 

Head next Solheimajokull glacier, where you'll take a hike on its blue-ice surface (weather permitting) for around 1.5-hours. Get up close and personal with this "sleeping ice giant." A bit further is the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings.

In one day, see two volcanoes and discover five amazing waterfalls.  A perfect tour for the curious tourist and the inquisitive nature lover. You'll spend a minimum of 45 minutes at each stop to fully enjoy and experience these amazing attractions, both with the help of the guide and on your own, if you wish.

Please note: This tour takes up to 12 hours. Meals are not included but you will stop for a lunch break and for a coffee break in the afternoon.

IMPORTANT: The glacier hike may be cancelled due to weather and/or safety reasons. In that case, other activities will be put in its place when possible. Otherwise, a partial refund will be given.

Tour ends at approximately 9pm with drop-off at your hotel.
