Stop At: Seljalandsfoss
Then turn back west along the coastal road at the foot of Eyjafjallajokull volcano and make a stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This beautiful column of water tumbles off the cliffs and you have the possibility of walking around behind the falls and through the spray, so be sure to bring your waterproofs, as you might get wet. This is saved this stop for last, as getting wet at the end of the day is much better than starting the day wet.
Stop At: Skogafoss
The first stop is the powerful Skogafoss waterfall with its 60 metre (200ft) drop and formidable spray. On sunny days, the waterfall often has a rainbow to add to the view
Stop At: Solheimajokull Glacier
Wonderful glacier and ocean view over the powerful Sólheimajökull glacier.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Reynisfjara Beach
After exploring the edge of the ice, we walk back to the bus and drive a little farther east to Reynisfjara black sand beach which is near to the village of Vik and Dyrholaey headland. Make a stop of around 1 hour at Reynisfjara which boasts a spectacular black sand beach, basalt columns and cliffs, sea stacks and in summer between May and August there are often puffins roosting and nesting on the grassy ledges along the cliffs. The beach also has a nice café where you will also be able to get some lunch.
