Iceland's Ultimate South Coast, Ice Cave & Waterfall Adventure

Explore the splendour of Iceland's South Coast on a tour that takes you to the island's newest natural ice cave and its most iconic waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.

Your journey starts with a pickup from Reykjavík, leading you through the scenic South Coast. Witness Iceland's contrasting landscapes: craggy mountains and peaceful pastures, vast black sand shores meeting the wild Atlantic, and distant ice-capped volcanoes.

Experience the magic of Seljalandsfoss, where you can walk behind the waterfall's misty curtain, and the power of Skógafoss, with its mighty fall creating misty rainbows.

The adventure's highlight begins at Myrdaljökull Glacier Base Camp. Here, you'll hop aboard a giant Mountain Truck for a thrilling ride to the glacier's edge. It's just the beginning! Next up, you'll switch to a snowmobile, gliding across the snow to reach the entrance of the stunning ice cave. Get ready for an unforgettable experience!

With safety gear on and led by a skilled guide, you'll enter the heart of Myrdalsjökull. A brief walk leads to Askur ice cave, a realm of untouched snow and ice, echoing with hues of deep blue and volcanic black.

The cave unveils its magic as you step in. You can see layers in the ice revealing the glacier's history, including weather changes and trapped volcanic ash. The cave's atmosphere is serene and quiet, interrupted only by the occasional dripping of melting ice or the distant rumble of the glacier shifting. It's a place that not only showcases the beauty of Iceland's frozen landscapes but also offers a unique perspective on the natural processes shaping our planet.

As our expedition draws to a close, you'll return enriched with the profound beauty of Iceland's frozen wonders and the thundering majesty of its waterfalls, carrying memories that will last a lifetime.
