Know More about this tour

In this unique and active tour, you will hike on a glacier, descend into a lava cave, and ride a fat bike to the famous plane wreck on Slheimasandur. Along the way, you witness the spectacular waterfalls along the south coast and can immerse yourself in a geothermal pool. All in one day!
Seljalandsfoss waterfall

The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall which you can walk behind and get a unique point of view while feeling the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. Its an automatic Instagram blockbuster. 

Skgafoss waterfall

The pearl of the South Coast has to be Skgafoss waterfall. From the 60 meter high cliffs of East Eyjafjll mountains, the waterfall pours down making, arguably, the most photogenic waterfall in the country. Over the years, the water has carved itself into the mountain, tucking the beautiful waterfall into a small gorge. Add rainbows forming in the waterfalls spray and you have yourself a Kodak moment. 

Glacier Hike on Slheimajkull glacier

Here the adventure continues at Slheimajkull glacier which is part of the 4th biggest glacier in Iceland, Mrdalsjkull. We will provide helmets, harnesses, crampons and ice axes before hiking on the ice for 1 to 1,5 hours. Our glacier guides are all trained and licensed and provide a safe, entertaining and informative hike. A spectacular experience to learn more about this breathtaking and increasingly rare natural phenomenon.

Fat bike ride to the DC-3 Plane Wreck on Slheimasandur

After the glacier hike we head out to Slheimasandur desert where a US Nacy DC3 crash landed in 1973 after running out of fuel in midair. The wreck has since then been immortalized in numerous music videos and viral photographs. The plane itself is 4 km from the nearest road so we provide the coolest transportation method available, fat bikes. In essence, well be riding a fat bike over volcanic sand and ash towards a black sand beach containing a crashed Navy airplane deemed too far away to salvage. 

Seljavallalaug geothermal pool

By now, youll be aching for some quiet time and so it will be time to swim in Seljavallalaug geothermal pool. Chosen one of the best pools in the world by the Guardian, it will certainly be among the most unique swimming experience of any visitors life. It was built in 1923 in a beautiful valley surrounded by steep mountains and inspiring lava rock formations. (Due to the lack of daylight the pool is not visited in the winter time, October to late April).

Secret Lava Cave

But we still have our final blow! Explore the inside of a lava cave which formed in a volcanic eruption 5000 years ago. Equipped with helmets and flashlights we will scramble over big lava rocks and crawl into the darkness of the Icelandic underground.
