South Coast Elements | DC-3 Plane Wreck, Glacier Hike & Lava Cave


CERTIFIED OPERATOR     Tour operator: Troll Expeditions     14 hours     Travel method: Mini Bus / Car

Your adventure begins when your experienced guide picks you up in a comfortable minibus in the morning and whisk you off to the scenic South Coast. 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. It’s an automatic Instagram blockbuster. Right next to Seljalandsfoss is his little brother Gljúfrabúi, a smaller waterfall hidden in a narrow gorge which is accessible only by balancing on small stones in the river. Skógafoss waterfall The pearl of the South Coast has to be Skógafoss waterfall. From the 60 meter high cliffs of East Eyjafjöll 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 waterfall’s spray and you have yourself a Kodak moment. Along side the waterfall lies a staircase up to the cliff with views looking down into the gorge and onto the waterfall. The 527 steps up to the top provide a fantastic warm-up for the glacier hike! Glacier Hike on Sólheimajökull Glacier Here the adventure continues at Sólheimajökull glacier which is part of the 4th biggest glacier in Iceland, Mýrdalsjökull. 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. DC-3 Plane Wreck on Sólheimasandur After the glacier hike we head out to Sólheimasandur 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. Hike over volcanic sand and ash towards a black sand beach containing a crashed Navy airplane deemed too far away to salvage. Enjoy! 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. What are you waiting for? Are you ready to join us for this incredible minibus tour? We are steering clear of the crowds while packing a full day of mind-blowing experiences in this once in a lifetime opportunity to see all the highlights in the South Coast in one day!
