There is a good possibility of seeing seals swimming around the huge icebergs. After enjoying this wonderful experience, you will head back in the afternoon towards Reykjavik.

What people are saying about Kvernufoss

We wasnt going to book this tour as we had already booked 2 others but we were so glad we did! This was the best tour of the whole holiday it was so beautiful and really fun! The glacier hike was so liberating and very educational definitely worth doing. I need to give a special thanks to our tour guide who really made it fantastic! He was so funny and told us loads of cool stuff! Unfortunately I cant remember his real name to give him a proper shout out because he jokingly said to call him BoBo! But BoBo was amazing and I cant thank him enough for making this day excellent.

Beautiful waterfalls and views. In the title and description it says that you are also included in the glacier hike, but that is not the case. You go there alone and see a small piece. That wasn't very clear.

Absolutely breathtaking experience. Would 100% recommend. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely helped make the experience unforgettable. We would do it all again.

A long day full of great impressions with the absolute highlight of the glacier hike. The guide knew a lot to tell and made sure we were safe on the glacier. Highly recommended!

We are a family of 4 and this was our favourite tour of our holiday.. extremely well organised, comfortable bus and the sights were amazing
