Your Experience

Marvel at the Most Popular Waterfalls of the Icelandic South Coast

A local guide will accompany you and provide you with insight and history about the entire region. The audioguide is available in 10 different languages and will give interesting facts during your bus journey. The tour will begin at the lava fields on the foot of the mountain Hengill. The distant Hekla Volcano is visible on bright days, nearly a 100 kilometers away. The Westman Islands are visible across the Atlantic Ocean. The tour bus will make its first stop at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. What makes this waterfall so uncommon is that a hidden path leads behind it, allowing you a unique view. You will then move on to the Skógafoss Waterfalls. A flight of stairs will help you ascend to one of the most scenic views in all of Iceland.

Explore Dominating Glaciers and the Famed Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the Sólheimajökull Glacier. The glaciers are a sight to behold, the white-blue ice standing out amongst the brown-black rocks. The Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach has a massive basalt column cave, with several jagged columns. These extend the list of mind-boggling natural structures of Iceland. Finally, you will go to the fishing village of Vik. The red-roofed church is something that you shouldn't miss, and it makes for a wonderful sight on the serene seaside.

Witness the Unforgettable Brilliance of the World Famous Aurora Borealis

You will then return to Reykjavik. If weather conditions permit, you can catch sight of the Aurora Borealis on the northern island during winter. Iceland gets quite chilly in winter at night, and if you haven't brought a warm jacket with you, “Aurora Jackets” can be rented during this period. Once you see it with your own eyes, you will realize that pictures and paintings do not do the Northern Lights justice. A specially trained guide will be at your side and will help you learn about the Northern Lights. They will provide you with some useful tips and tricks to take better photographs of his incredible phenomenon. This tour is weather dependent and sightings cannot be guaranteed for every tour.

We went quite early in August and were unlucky to sight the Northern lights.

It was a toss up between winter and summer and we chose to see Iceland in winter, the scenery was very dramatic and we were lucky to have caught the aurora later that night.
