Stop 1: Seljalandsfoss waterfall
The first stop on the tour is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. If you’re feeling adventurous be sure to walk the steep staircase to view the gorgeous waterfall from behind. This is also a great photo opportunity!
At 65 meters high, this waterfall has breathtaking views of roaring glacier waters and the birds that call this place home.
And do be sure to bring along your raincoat if you plan to venture behind this waterfall! The mist coming from the falling water is sure to wet your clothes through, but this is also a great way to create a rainbow effect so keep an eye out.
Stop 2: Skogafoss waterfall
The next stop along this tour is Skogafoss, only a mere 30 kilometers from Seljalandsfoss right off the main Ring Road.
At a whoping 60 meters high and 25 meters wide, you can feel the power.
You will have the choice to walk up close and personal or take the 60 meter staircase to the top and view the falls from above. Eitherway, you are sure to get some amazing views. If you choose the up-close option, be sure to protect yourself and your camera from the massive mist cloud that forms at the bottom of the waterfall.
Also here, you will see the many bird species flying around and nesting in the cliffs, but also you may see a stray sheep or two that can wander over from the nearby farm.
Stop 3: Reynisfjara Black Beach
Moving away from the waterfalls, the tour will make it’s way further down the coast to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach located in the small coastal town, Vik. Known for it’s black colored sand and ginormous basalt stacks, you are sure to get an amazing photo here.
Though you may not first think of Iceland when you think of going to the beach, in 1991, National Geographic voted Reynisfjara as one of the Top 10 non-tropical beaches to visit on Earth.
It is not hard to notice the rocky basalt sea stacks, named Reynisdrangar. Just around the corner from here you can view more ragged edged cave like areas where the high tide water used to rush in. Please be aware of the strong current and the waves most referred to as “sneaker waves” which is a nod to their ability to rush in out of nowhere knocking people to the ground.
Stop 4: Dyrholaey
Also located in the fishing village of Vik, we will stop at the beautiful Dyrholaey, sometimes known as the arch with the hole.
This location on the South Coast is known in the spring and summer to be home to many species of birds including the adorable puffin! Nesting season is limited, but it sure is something to see if you get the chance.
Looking out from the top of the arch you can see Myrdalsjokull glacier, the basalt stacks at Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, and an endless coastline.
Stop 5: Sleeping in a bubble
Our last stop will be at our newest bubble location, an area close to Selfoss. We will have 3 fully transparent bubbles ready by 1.May, 2018, which fit 2 adults each in a double sized bed.
