Embark on a thrilling two-day tour through the rugged and remote Icelandic Highlands and Iceland’s stunning South Coast. Witness Iceland’s most iconic waterfalls and beaches on day one and immerse yourself in the breathtaking colorful volcanic landscapes that the Icelandic Highlands are famous for on day two. With the guidance of a professional photographer who will capture your unforgettable experiences, you can just enjoy the stunning nature without worry.
At the end of your trip, you will receive a personalized photo package as the perfect souvenir to remember your epic adventure.
Begin your adventure with a pickup from your accommodation in Reykjavik heading for the south coast and eventually driving onto a 4×4 road into the interior of Iceland
As the first stop on your Icelandic Highlands adventure, Haifoss Waterfall will leave you breathless. The waterfall cascades down a 122-meter drop, making it one of the tallest waterfalls in Iceland. The surrounding rugged terrain and green vegetation add to the beauty of the waterfall and provide the perfect backdrop for your photos.
Gjáin is a hidden gem located in the Icelandic Highlands and is the second stop on our itinerary. This secluded valley is often described as a fairytale landscape with its lush greenery, waterfalls, and clear streams that flow through the valley. The area is dotted with small caves and surrounded by stunning cliffs, making it an ideal spot for taking photos.
Before our next stop, we will take a lunch break at the only restaurant in the Icelandic Highlands- The Highlands Center. Here you can enjoy soups, sandwiches, burgers, and vegetarian options from their grill.
As we venture deeper into the Icelandic Highlands, the next stop on our itinerary is Sigöldugljúfur Canyon. Also known as the Valley of Tears, this deep canyon hosts numerous waterfalls feeding into glistening blue streams surrounded by lush greenery. It is seen by many as a magical oasis in an otherwise baron volcanic wasteland.
Visiting Landmannalaugar as the final stop on this day tour is the definition of saving the best for last. The rugged and colorful mountains of the highlands provide a stunning backdrop for both exploration and photography. We conclude our Highlands tour with 1-2 hours of hiking within this sculpted volcanic playground.
After an epic day exploring the Highlands, you will check in to your cozy accommodation along the south coast, where you can relax and recharge for another day of adventure.
Pick up from your accommodation along the South Coast at 9am
The first stop on our tour is the breathtaking Seljalandsfoss waterfall. During most of the year, you can walk behind the waterfall into a cave for a view from the back and the sides. The surrounding area is also home to a variety of plant life, including moss, wildflowers, and ferns that add to its majesty. Bring a rain jacket because this waterfall by far has the most spray!
Next up is the mighty Skogafoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls, with a drop of over 60 meters. Feel the power of this waterfall close up. The mist from the falls can create a beautiful display of rainbows on sunny days if you’re lucky. If you want a workout, climb up a nearby staircase to get a bird’s-eye view of the waterfall and surrounding landscapes.
We’ll take a short 30-minute hike to the face of the Solheimajokull glacier, where you can marvel at the sparkling blue ice and rugged glacial landscapes. Witness what happens when a glacier exists underneath of Katla, Iceland’s largest active volcano. Your guide will share some interesting facts about the glacier’s formation, its importance to Iceland’s ecosystem, and how it has changed throughout the years.
Next, we’ll visit the towering cliffs of Dyrhólaey, where you can see breathtaking views of the black sand beaches and some truly remarkable sea stacks and cliff formations. Keep your eyes peeled for puffins and other seabirds that nest in the cliffs in the summertime.
Before heading to the Black Beach we will take a late lunch the Black Beach Restaurant. Here you can enjoy an assortment of fish, lamb, soups, sandwiches, and burgers with a nice beautiful view of the beach.
We will end our tour with a visit to Reynisfjara, a stunning black sand beach with towering basalt columns and sea stacks. The beach is also home to some fascinating folklore and legends, including the story of the Reynisdrangar sea stacks. You can also explore the nearby cave, Halsanefshellir, which has unique rock formations and provides a stunning backdrop for photos.
