Travel through the south Iceland farming lands to the black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers on the south coast.
The first stop is at Skógarfoss. A picturesque waterfall thundering down the slopes of Eyjafjallajökull volcano. A waterfall frequently used in movies and commercials.
The tour continues with a paragliding flight near Sólheimajökull glacier with expert and experienced paragliding pilots.
Then onwards for a leisurely stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. The beach features stacks of basalt columns that wall off surrounding cliffs scattered with caves.
Offshore you will see Reynisdrangar pillars, basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea. Icelandic legend says they were trolls turned into rock by the rising sun when they came home late after a fishing trip.
We round off this great sightseeing tour with a stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where we can walk behind this magnificent wall of water, right in the slopes of Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
On a clear day you will have a fantastic view of famous volcanoes, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. You will also see the Westman Islands, rising steeply from the ocean just a few kilometres of the coast.
This tour is a great value and easy with an adventurous twist. Sights are breathtaking and where else in the world can you Paraglide among glaciers and sea cliffs, walk behind a waterfall and stroll along a volcanic black sand beach in one day?

Easter in Iceland 2014
Easter in Iceland is both a religious holiday and a sign that winter is over. The latter usually proves spectacularly wrong, but as long as we get our chocolate Easter egg on Sunday morning, we're ok. Over Easter all our tours will be running according to schedule, our service desks in Hafnarst
