Day 1: Reykjavik – Sólheimajökull – Reykjavik (approx. 11 hrs)

Summary of The Day

First stop will be the rugged Sólheimajökull Glacier. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier that flows from main ice-cap of Mýrdalsjökull where the mighty Katla Volcano rests. You will walk on the glacier, wearing special crampons on your shoes and explore the amazing cracks, crevasses and ice expertly lead by a certified glacier guide. The experience is definitely one of those who are unique to Iceland as, you only need to hike 20 minutes, and suddenly you will find yourself standing on top of a few hundred meters of ice, but still only slightly above sea-level.

The next destination is the stunning Skógarfoss waterfall. Up close, you will be able to feel the water-spray on your face and you can also climb up the hill (all 527 steps) to see the majestic 60 meter high waterfall from above and witness the water plummet down on it’s way to the Atlantic Ocean.

Last but not least, we will visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall that is one of Iceland's most famous attractions, to get a different perspective you can take a walk from behind and look through the wall of water.

In order to reach all of our incredible destination we will make our way through fertile farming lands and pass by small villages. The area is known for its Viking history and heritage guarded by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull & Hekla Volcano dwell with their all-powerful presence. On clear days you will also have a great view of the Westman Islands where the renowned volcanoes lie, that caused the islander's great troubles in the 1970's.
