The journey along the south coast will reveal all the beauty of the magnificent nature of Iceland in one day! You will hear the sound of powerful waterfalls surrounded by clouds of water clouds you will go along the slopes of the Sólheimajökull glacier covered with volcanic ash. You will swim in the oldest thermal pool surrounded by mountains, watch the puffins at the romantic Dyrhólaey lighthouse and walk along the black sand listening to the song of the ocean.
What awaits you
The beauty and power of Icelandic waterfalls
The first stop on our way will be the 60-meter Seljalandsfoss waterfall: a wide trail along the rock will allow you to walk behind the waterfall and discover it from all sides — what an impressive sight! You will admire the marvellous landscapes of the waterfall, walk through a column of water dust that rises like smoke above the rock. When it’s sunny you will see bright rainbows over Seljalandsfoss. Another waterfall on our way is Skógafoss, 25 meters wide and 60 meters high, with which the legend about the first viĸing of Trasi Tourulfsson and the ancient ring is connected.
And at the Kvernufoss waterfall, where slightly any tourists get, you will take a break from the bustle of the city and find yourself alone with Icelandic nature.
Ice and ash — landscapes of the Sólheimajökull glacier
At the ancient ice of Sólheimajökull, truly unique landscapes await you: in some places the ice is covered with volcanic ash that settles after eruptions, and a bizarre mixture of black and white lines and areas is mesmerising and impressive.
Picturesque Dyrhólaey Peninsula
Then we will go to the Dyrhólaey peninsula, the landscape of which harmoniously complements the traditional white and red lighthouse. From the top of the cape, you will see ocean waves and a black rocky arch into which ships and special amphibious vehicles enter. In addition, Dyrhólaey is a real bird sanctuary: during the nesting period, you will meet the puffins — the feathered symbols of Iceland — and other birds.
Space landscape of Black Beach
Volcanos have worked hard on Black Beach, one of the main natural attractions of Iceland: the entire coast here consists of pure black gravel and black boulders. Broadsheet has often acknowledged this beach as the most beautiful on Earth, and directors often choose it for filming fantastic films, because the local landscapes are truly unearthly.
