Today you will explore majestic waterfalls, black sand beaches and learn about the unique geology of Iceland. You will start with a visit to the Lava Centre, a one-of-a-kind interactive exhibition about Iceland’s volcanic activity, its frequent earthquakes and evolution over millions of years. Next up is the fairy tale-like Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the icy cascade on a footpath. Close by, your guide will also take you to Skógafoss, an impressive 60-metre-high (197-feet-high) waterfall, followed by a visit to the Skógar Folk Museum.
The last stop for today is the black sand volcanic beach near the village of Vík í Mýrdal. Here, you will be able to see the spectacular rock arch and steep cliffs along with the Reynisdrangar basalt columns just off the shore.
Next, you will travel to your accommodation for the night where you’ll enjoy dinner. It is located far from the city lights to give you the best chance of seeing the northern lights.
Spend the night at the Magma Hotel or similar.
