South Coast and Glacier Walk - Tours | Icelandair
Pingdom Check

On this, one of our newest and most exciting day tours, you'll visit Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier that flows from the main ice-cap of Mýrdalsjökull where the mighty volcano Katla rests.

You'll have an hour to walk atop the glacier with your certified, expert guide using special crampons, perfect for exploring the cracks and crevasses of this magnificent ice structure. You'll also visit the stunning Skógafoss waterfall where, if you're ready for some climbing, you can take all 527 steps to see the majestic 60-meter high waterfall from above and witness the water plummet down on its way to the Atlantic Ocean. You'll also visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most famous attractions that enables you to walk behind its magnificent wall of water. The tour coaches are equipped with computer tablets in each seat, including a GPS-sensitive In-Bus Audio Guide available in 10 languages (Chinese, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish). USB chargers and free Wi-Fi is also available on-board.
