Full description
Following collection from your Reykjavik accommodation, begin with a visit 2 of Iceland's most beautiful waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. There you can see how the glaciers have formed the landscape, and can learn just why the south coast is so fertile. Next up, visit and walk on the one and only Black Sand Beach in Iceland and see the trolls out in the ocean, before visiting the first Skyr Factory. Skyr is a famous Icelandic yogurt, and is what vikings survived on during the hard and cold winters. If it would not have been for the Icelandic Skyr, the locals would not have managed to survive there. Among your various tastings at the factory you will also receive dinner. Next up, get the chance to receive a great picture from your guide throughout a glacier hike. Equipped with an axe, you can act like you are climbing up the glacier. At the conclusion of your experience, your guide will return you back to your Reykjavik accommodation.
