Day 3: South Iceland ( Glaciers & Waterfalls )

A long and full day awaits! In the morning, we follow the south coast and arrive near the active volcano that is beneath the Eyjafjallajökull glacier, then take a stop at the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall plunging from the mountain. Next, we visit Skógar folk museums and several turf-built houses. Nearby is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country; the 60-metre-high Skógafoss waterfall. In the afternoon, we offer an optional glacier walk. Leaving the hikers there, we continue south to the black lava beach to see the amazing bird cliffs at Reynisfjara near Vík. If the night is clear, you might see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heavens in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes. The hotel grounds are large and dark to offer you a good view of the Northern Lights. It requires patience, warm clothing and the excitement!
