Travel along the southern coast of Iceland. The first stop will be at the Seljarlandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind the cascade.  The Seljalandsfoss waterfall is a popular destination. The waterfall is only 200 meters away from the parking lot. The visitors are when in a safe condition able to walk behind the waterfall and have a spectacular view from behind. The cascade is 60 meters high and has its origins in the famous glacier and volcano Eyjafjallajökull. The water is clean, and we recommend visitors to fill their bottle with water from the river before continuing the tour.

The next stop is Skogafoss which is much bigger waterfall, and we have an option to visit the museum in Skogar (cultural heritage collection and turf houses).  It has a drop of 60 meters and a width of 25 meters. It is a beautiful scenery where you can walk all the way up to the waterfall and feel the spray on your face.  Due to the spray the waterfalls produce, then you usually see a rainbow in a sunny day.  You can walk up a staircase which leads you to an observation deck on the top of the waterfall.  It will give you a spectacular view of the waterfall and the surrounding landscape.

We will continue to Dyrhólaey to see the birds live (for example, puffins) and a spectacular view of the black sand beach, and end in the small village of Vík where you will have a wonderful view of Reynisdrangar. Dyrhólaey used to be an island before but is now accessible by jeeps.  From the top of the mountain, you will see an old light house, and spectacular view in all directions. The black sand to the west and east and the mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
