Tour Description

You will be picked up by tour awesome guide in Reykjavik or nearest towns at almost a time of your choice. Listen to stories of hidden people, trolls, monsters and how the Vikings put life in everything in the nature.

Your first stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This is one of Iceland most beautiful waterfalls where you can walk behind and see the rainbow on the other side on sunny days. The water in this waterfall runs from the glacier/volcano Eyjafjallajökull.

Next stop is the waterfall with hidden treasure underneath it. This is Skógafoss waterfall. You can walk all the way on top of it and see the water run down. The hiking trail to Fimmvörðuháls starts by this waterfall.

Cape Dyrhóley is a true magic. Being on top of it and seeing black sand beach on both sides of you, the mighty volcano Katla and breathing the fresh air from the North Atlantic oceand while seeing the strong waves brake at the cliffs. This island is also known for the big Puffin colony in the summer.

Continue to the east you will visit the Black Sand Beach. Standing on this beach and listening to the power of the North Atlantic Ocean and seeing the troll out in the ocean that has turned into stone after helping a 3 mast ship to shore. The basaltic rocks in the mountain on the beach are surreal.

We offer guests the option to visit the Lava Exhibition in Hvolfsvollur. This is high tech exhibition which makes you feel like you are in a huge eruption with live earthquakes and live eruptions.
