Following convenient pickup at your hotel in Reykjavik, leave the city for your day's exploration of Iceland's southern coast. As you travel, take advantage of the in-bus audio guide, available in 10 languages, to gain insight on the landscape as you pass.
First, you'll head to the Sólheimajökull glacier. Trek around the crevasses and cracks with a certified glacier guide. Learn about the formation of the glacier, which flows from the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, and how it helped form the surrounding landscape. Then, travel to Skógarfoss falls, where you'll climb 527 steps to admire the 213-foot (60-meter) waterfall from above.
Finally, stop at Seljalandsfoss, considered among Iceland's top natural attractions. Walk the path behind the rushing water to get a different perspective on the tumbling falls.
Back on board the bus, pass through an area rich with both fertile land and Viking history. On a clear day, get unobstructed views of the Westman Islands, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes.
At the end your 11-hour sightseeing tour, return to your Reykjavik hotel for drop-off.
