ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Gljufrabui Waterfalls, Skogar, South RegionGljúfrabúi is a small waterfall north of the larger falls of Seljalandsfoss in Iceland. The falls are partially obscured by the cliff rock, but hikers can follow a trail to enter the narrow canyon where the water plummets to a small pool. There is also a winding trail nearby and a wooden staircase to enable sightseers to climb roughly halfway up and view the falls from another perspective.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Seljalandsfoss, South RegionThis breathtaking waterfall will leave your jaw dropped. You have definitely seen pictures of Seljalandasfoss but nothing beats the experience of getting a little wet when walking behind the falling water!Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Skogafoss, Skogar, South RegionThis waterfall is a completely different beast! A huge amount of water is dropping down with tremendous force forming an everpresent water mist that creates beautiful rainbows. It feels like you can almost touch them.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Urridafoss Waterfall, Villingaholt, South RegionUrriðafoss is a waterfall located in the river Þjórsá in southwest Iceland.The Fossafélagið Títan company was given permission in 1927 to build a power plant in Urriðafoss in connection with a railway to Reykjavík from the waterfall. It did not happen but now Landsvirkjun is planning to build hydropower stations on the lower part of Þjórsár river, at Urriðafoss and Núpur.Duration: 15 minutesStop At: Dyrholaey, Vik, South RegionThe small peninsula, or promontory, Dyrhólaey (0.192 Miles / 120 meters) (formerly known as “Cape Portland” by seamen) is located on the south coast of Iceland, not far from the village Vík. It was formerly an island of volcanic origin, which is also known by the Icelandic word eyja meaning island.The view from Dyrhólaey is interesting: To the north is to be seen the big glacier Mýrdalsjökull. To the east, the black lava columns of the Reynisdrangar come out of the sea, and to the west, the whole coastline in the direction of Selfoss is visible – depending on weather conditions. In front of the peninsula, there is a gigantic black arch of lava standing in the sea, which gave the peninsula its name (meaning: the hill-island with the door-hole).Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Reynisfjara Beach, Vik, South RegionThis is certainly one of the brightest highlights of this tour. Named one of the top 10 beaches in the whole world by National Geographic, this spectacular location will leave you speechless. Basalt stacks, roaring waves and stunning scenery!Duration: 30 minutes
