South Coast Elements-Lava Caving-Glacier Hike- Waterfalls-DC-3 Plane Wreck and Hot Springs
Join this unique tour to see the South coast waterfalls, the famous plane wreck in Sólheimsandur, Sólheimajökull glacier hiking and bathing in Seljavallalaug geothermal pool.
We end the day with a peak into an volcanic tube. Steering clear of the crowds and experiencing a full day of incredible attractions.
It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to go hiking on a glacier, bathing in a hot spring and descending into a volcanic cave… all in one day.
The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind and feel the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. Right next to it is the waterfall Gljúfrabúi which is hidden in a small gorge. To see the waterfall you have to balance over stones in the river.
Prepare to meet the pearl of the south coast, Skógafoss waterfall. It is dropping 60 metres from a cliff and producing a lot of mist which makes beautiful rainbows in the sunshine. Try to warm up for the glacier by running up the 527 steps to the top!
Your adventure continues at Sólheimajökull glacier, where we will hike up to the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull, which is a part of Mýrdalsjökull, one of the biggest glaciers in Europe.
DC-3 Airplane Wreck
After the glacier hike, we head out to a black sand beach that has also been a site of a DC3 airplane wreck since the fifties. Your guide will show you around and tell you the story of this airplane wreck.
Here you will have the opportunity to jump on a Fat-Bike to explore this area in the coolest way imaginable.
By now, you’ll be waiting to take a dip in Seljavallalaug geothermal pool, which has been chosen one of the best pools in the world. Just make sure to bring along your swimwear to relax in the midst of tranquil scenery.
Secret Lava Cave
Your last stop will not be disappointing, as next you will head to explore the inside of a 5000 year old lava tube, which formed in a volcanic eruption. Reserve this unique tour as soon as possible.
