Skógafoss waterfall

Continue your adventure to the majestic Skogafoss waterfall, a grand spectacle that dwarfs its counterparts in width and power. Feel the mist as you approach the falls, and, weather permitting, catch a glimpse of the famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier and volcano that made headlines in 2010.

Sólheimajokull Glacier

Journey to Solheimajokull, a captivating glacier tongue originating from the massive ice cap Myrdalsjokull, covering the mighty Katla volcano. A short walk from the parking lot unveils a stunning viewpoint to admire the glacier’s grandeur.

Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach

Next, we arrive at Reynisfjara black sand beach, celebrated for its eerie beauty and dramatic geology. Witness the photogenic hexagonal basalt columns and, in summer, keep an eye out for puffins perched on the cliffs.

When visiting Reynisfjara you need to be very careful. The waves on this beach can be strong and dangerous. Always follow the safety advice of your guide while visiting the beach.

Sólheimajökull Glacier

Vik, the southernmost village of Iceland, is our furthest stop, featuring mesmerizing sea stacks along the beach. Legend has it that these stacks are the frozen figures of trolls turned to stone while playing in the sea.

Dyrhólaey

Dyrhólaey, a captivating promontory along Iceland’s South Coast, is a natural wonder that leaves visitors in awe. Renowned for its dramatic cliffs and stunning views, Dyrhólaey offers a vantage point that encompasses the vast expanse of the North Atlantic Ocean, the black sand beaches below, and the striking Reynisdrangar sea stacks. The iconic rock arch, for which Dyrhólaey is named (translating to “Door Hill Island” in Icelandic), adds a touch of mystique to this picturesque location. Whether you’re captivated by the rich birdlife, including puffins, or simply savoring the panoramic landscapes, Dyrhólaey stands as a testament to Iceland’s raw and untouched beauty.
