Itinerary


We pick you up around noon and start by heading to the Sólheimajökull glacier, where we enjoy a safe and easy Glacier Walk up onto the ice field. As we explore all the features of the glacier such as water cauldrons, crevasses, ridges, and waterways, we learn about the history and formation of Icelandic glaciers. After the Glacier Walk, we head to the powerful Skógafoss waterfall before we enjoy a traditional Icelandic dinner at a local restaurant. As we head out into the night looking out for those magical Northern Lights, we pay a mandatory stop at the lit up Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
