    The Iceland’s South Coast, Glacier Hike, and Waterfalls tour begins with a complimentary hotel pick-up, where a coach will take you to the South coast of Iceland.

    The first stop is at the Selialandsfoss waterfall where you will be able to take in the beautiful scenery and walk behind its magnificent wall of water. The tour continues with an easy hike on the ancient ice of the Sólheimajökull glacier led by an experienced and certified glacier guide.

    We finish up this great sightseeing tour with a stop at the Skógafoss waterfall, where on a clear day you may have a good view of the famous volcanoes, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. When the tour drives under the foothills of Eyjafjallajökull, you can catch a glimpse of the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometres off the coast.

    After seeing all of these amazing sights, the coach will drop you off back at your hotel in Reykjavik. However, drop off would depend on the route and traffic restrictions.
