Combine Iceland’s Iconic South Coast Sights With Kayaking

Your first stop of the day is Sólheimajökull glacier. The spectacular Sólheimajökull is one of the most popular glaciers in Iceland to visit. During this tour, you can get away from the crowds and view the glacier features from a perspective that few others are able to enjoy. Paddling among the always-changing icebergs of this newly formed glacier lagoon gives you a first-hand experience of the massive glacial retreat in recent years. Our Sit-on-Top kayaks are very stable, and do not require prior kayaking experience. Before boarding, your certified kayaking guides will teach you the basic paddling technique and provide you with a dry suit.

After being surrounded by spectacular icebergs on your kayaking tour, you continue along the South Coast to the stunning 60 meters high Skógafoss waterfall. If you are up for it, you can climb all of the 527 steps to the top of the waterfall and view it from above, as well as have an awe-inspiring panorama of southern Iceland's coastline.

The final stop of the day is the equally impressive Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It is one of the best known landmarks of Iceland. It is 65 meters tall and it is possible to walk behind it in the summer. It is a great experience to see the waterfall from behind, especially on a sunny day when you can catch a rainbow reflection in the water. We recommend bringing a raincoat as you can get wet from the drizzle.

All buses are equipped with a GPS sensitive audio-guide with translations in ten different languages. On board, you will also find an USB charger, free Wi-fi and a personal host ready to assist you in any way. Truly an experience of a lifetime
