Description

Kayak on a glacier lagoon before you see two of Iceland's most renowned waterfalls.

On the South Coast & Glacier lagoon kayak tour you paddle between the ever-changing icebergs of the lagoon, you get to leave the crowds behind and admire the spellbinding glacier landscape from a wholly different perspective. With our stable sit-on-top kayaks, no prior experience is required, and the basic technique is very easy to pick up.

Head back to dry-land for a unforgettable excursion along the South Coast of Iceland. The first stop will be at Skógafoss, one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, with a drop of 60 meters and a width of 25 meters, and you can walk right up to, but be prepared to be drenched. For the ultimate viewing you can climb up the stairs right next to it.

On the next stop in our journey we head out to a beautiful waterfall called Seljalandsfoss with an option of walking behind the 60 meter high waterfall famous for the hidden pathway leading behind and around this stunning sight. With some luck and sunny weather conditions, rainbows may add to the spectacular experience at each waterfall. 

Join our tour and step aboard one of our new buses, fully equipped with WiFi connected computer tablets for each guest. The tablets provide you with a continuous stream of relevant information along the journey with a GPS synced Audio Guide, available with a choice of 10 languages.  Along the tour our local hosts will make your experience comfortable and are happy to answer any questions you might have about our peculiar country. In each seat you will also find a USB outlet to charge any of your devices.
