Visit the south coast of Iceland, go hiking on a glacier and visit the the incredible waterfalls of Skógar and Seljalandsfoss on this must-do day tour. Step on board the all-new bus fleet, conveniently equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, available in 10 languages (Chinese, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish). Onboard you will also find a USB Charger and free Wi-Fi. Should you have any questions during the tour or about our small country, you can ask the host who will happily assist you.

You'll first visit Solheimajokull Glacier, an outlet glacier that flows from main ice-cap of Myrdalsjokull where the mighty Katla Volcano rests. You'll have about an hour to walk on the glacier wearing special crampons on your shoes so you can explore the amazing cracks, crevasses and ice expertly lead by a certified glacier guide. Next you'll visit the stunning Skogarfoss waterfall where you'll feel the water spray on your face and if you're ready for some climbing, you can take all 527 steps to see the majestic 60 meter high waterfall from above and witness the water plummet down on it’s way to the Atlantic Ocean. You'll also visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most famous attractions where you can take a walk behind the magnificent wall of water.
