Along the way, we will stop at places like the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a photogenic waterfall you can walk behind and through to the other side. The next mandatory stop will be at the majestic Skógafoss waterfall which drops some awe-inspiring 60 meters (197 ft.) of its cliff.
Next in line is the black sand beach at Reynisfjara where the North-Atlantic ocean hammers the coastline with its ever-present strength. There we also have the opportunity to admire the basalt-columns in the cliffs above the beach and get great photos of Reynisdrangar rock formations.
After the black beach, we head to Vík where we might grab a late lunch and visit the Ice-Wear shop for some souvenirs.
Optional stops might include but are not limited to: the Lava Center (admission fee), the Gljúfrabúi waterfall and the Skógar Folk Museum (admission fee).
Optional activities might include Glacier walk/climb on Solheimajokull Glacier Tounge or even a snowmobile tour on Myrdalsjokull Glacier. Both activities must be pre-booked. Also, there is an optional hike to a DC3 plane wreck in the area.
