There is no limit on nature’s beauty. We learn early on to respect nature and it’s force. To tread lightly and leave the area that we are seeing, as we found it. We offer you to join us on a small group, that leaves a smaller footprint on nature. Of course, there are some places that are just so popular that it seems that every other tourist in the country is there at the same time. We set an example by choosing to go through the areas with respect.

Urridafoss 

Our first stop is the beautiful waterfall, Urridafoss (Brown trout waterfall). This waterfall is the last one of many that can be found in the Tjorsa river, the longest river of Iceland(230km). The waterfall is considered to be one of Iceland’s most voluminous waterfalls. It falls only 6m. The fish that can be found in the river is Salmon, Brown Trout, Arctic Charr, Tiddler and Eel.

Seljalandsfoss 

Seljalandsfoss has a 62m/197ft drop from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier and volcano. When you arrive at the waterfall, it’s beauty will astonish you and you immediately want to go closer. It is possible to walk behind the waterfall during summer. 

Volcanic eruption of 2010 

Eyjafjallajokull is the 6.th largest glacier in Iceland. It covers a cone shaped, very developed, volcano that has erupted four times since the settlement of Iceland. The volcano it self is one of the largest ones in Iceland, roughly 70% of the size of the largest volcano we have, Oraevajokull.  

Black sand beach 

Reynisfjara black sand beach, famous from many Hollywood & Bollywood movies and Game of Thrones. The sand is coming from the volcanoes, originally ash. You can see Puffins(from May to end of July), Fulmars and Guillemots from the beach.

Vik i Myrdal 

Vik is the most southern populated village in Iceland. It used to be a fishing village, the only one with out an harbor.Katla is a volcano hiding under the glacier, Myrdalsjokull. Myrdalsjokull is the 4.th largest glacier in Iceland. Katla erupts every 40-80 years on average, the last one(that we know about) in 1918. Approximately 20 eruptions in Katla since settlement and about 300 since the end of the last iceage.

Skogafoss waterfall 

Skogafoss, last but not the least. Majestic 62m/197ft waterfall falling from the Skoga river.
