Full description
After an early wake-up and pick-up in one of the coolest cities of Europe, take a great 10-hour tour to see Iceland. Make your first stop at waterfall Seljalandsfoss, with no doubt one of the most famous one in the country. This is a waterfall you can walk behind, with a drop off 65 meters and a part of the river Seljalandsá which has its origins underneath the glacier Eyjafjallajökull - the famous volcano that erupted in 2010 and put the world's flights on hold.  Head to the stunning waterfall Skógafoss, one of the largest at a width of 25 meters and drop off 60 meters. It can also be seen from above as there are footsteps that lead above the waterfall. Stop in Reynisfjara for lunch. Try Icelandic meat-soup or many other dishes. Take a walk on a black sand beach and maybe see  puffins if you are lucky. After that, drive to the Village of Vík for a short stop. Sólheimajökull Glacier is between the volcanoes Katla and Eyjafjallajökull, and a part of the larger Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Be dropped off in the parking lot and take a 15 to 20-minute walk along the glacier. On the way back to the city, hear the stories about all the trolls in the rocks, the elves and stop at some secret places, before you arrive back in Reykjavik at around 6:00 PM.

Devin is an awesome tour guide. He deserves a fat raise. He made the entire trip. His knowledge, his humor, his conversation and guidance was tremendous. I would highly recommend you allow him to train and advise all other tour guides. Thanks for a great day Devin!

Our host Otto (not sure if I am spelling his name correctly) was amazing and very welcoming. He made the absolute best to leave us as much time as possible at every stop and he also was kind enough to help take pictures. He made sure that we were all safe. The selected locations were absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t have wished for a better tour. Recommend!!!!

Our group of 9 had a great day with Bus Driver Annie! It was a pretty small bus (we had close to half of it to ourselves) which made it feel pretty personal. Everything we saw was absolutely breathtaking - several different waterfalls (all extremely unique), a glacier, a few villages, and (probably the highlight) a black sand beach and cave, which is easily recognizable from Game of Thrones. Annie was a fantastic guide, giving us so much background on everything we saw, Iceland's history, recommendations in Reykjavik, a taste of different Icelandic music, and a witty sense of humor. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see a lot of Iceland in a single day!
