Description:

Steering clear of the crowds and experiencing a full day of incredible attractions. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to go hiking on a glacier, bathing in a hot spring and descending into a volcanic cave… all in one day. The first stop is Seljalandsfoss and the secret waterfall Gljúfrabúi.  The real adventure then begins at Sólheimajökull glacier, where we will hike up to the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull, which is a part of Mýrdalsjökull, one of the biggest glaciers in Europe. After the glacier hike, we head out to a black sand beach that has also been a site of a DC3 airplane wreck since the fifties. Your guide will show you around and tell you the story of this airplane wreck. By now, you’ll be waiting to take a dip in Seljavallalaug geothermal pool, which has been chosen one of the best pools in the world. Just make sure to bring along your swimwear to relax in the midst of tranquil scenery. Your last stop will not be disappointing, as next you will head to explore the inside of a 5000 year old lava tube, which formed in a volcanic eruption.
Reserve this unique tour as soon as possible. It is the only tour that takes you to the plane wreck and all these amazing sights in one day. It´s therefore extremely popular and there is very limited availability. Press choose a date to search for availability.
