Take a whimsical tour through the landscapes that inspired Frozen 2! Visit the highlights of Iceland’s South Coast on a day-long adventure. Let it go and enjoy cinematic waterfalls, glaciers, and a black sand beach.
South Coast Waterfalls
As distinct as Anna and Elsa, Iceland is full of contrasting scenery. We begin our journey in the fairytale setting of the highlands. Our first stop is Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, one of the country’s most famous attractions. The narrow cascade has a drop of 60 meters (200 feet), which falls from a steep cliff. You don’t need an ice canoe like Anna and Olaf’s to explore the waterfall. There’s an amazing path that stretches around it. Walk behind the stunning curtain of the falls and feel the spray on your face. Seljalandsfoss is the ideal spot for a photo shoot. Our visit will also include a stop at the hidden waterfall, Gljúfrabúi.
As we travel into the unknown, we’ll pass through charming small villages and farmlands of South Iceland. This area is rich with Viking history and heritage, which heavily influenced Frozen I and II. Enjoy views of the notorious Eyjafjallajökull and Hekla volcanoes. On clear days, you’ll get a magnificent view of the volcanoes as well as the Westman Islands just off the coast.
Glacier Hike & Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach
Next, we head for the dark, mythical landscapes where Elsa explores her powers. Instead of Sven pulling us across the snow, we’ll strap on our crampons for a hike. Trek across the ancient ice of Solheimajokull Glacier with our certified glacier guide. After the glacier, we head for Reynisfjara Beach, known for its black sand basalt columns and caverns. Gaze out into the crashing waves where Elsa meets the mystical Nykur. Then witness the Reynisdrangar rock stacks that jut out from the sea. According to Icelandic legend, the sea stacks were once mischievous trolls, turned into rock by the sunlight.
Our day adventure ends at the spectacular Skógafoss Waterfall. Surrounded by lush green scenery, Skógafoss translates Forest Waterfall. On sunny days the falls create a single or double rainbow, which adds to the magic. A 527 step hike rewards you with a bird’s eye view of the cascading falls.
Pick up: Pick up is at 8:00 am from your selected meeting point in Reykjavik. As the pick-up process can take up to 30 minutes, your patience is much appreciated.
Available pick-up points: Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list.
Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good hiking boots are recommended.
What if I don’t own all of these clothing necessities?
Don’t worry, you can always rent sturdy hiking boots, a waterproof jacket and pants in the booking process or on location. Booking these items in advance is recommended.
This tour has a small group guarantee, meaning that the tour is always operated in a minibus to give you a more personal experience. Arctic Adventures reserves the right to alter the itinerary if the weather is too bad to go on the glacier walk. In case of this cancellation, a partial refund is given for missing the glacier hike.
This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.
Here you should wait for your guide.
Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.
After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.
Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).
Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.
Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.
Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.
All of our tours are guided in English.
No, for all your questions and concerns you would need to contact our customer service.
The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.
Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.
For further information about the difficulty ratings and descriptions.
We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.
The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.
Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
Iceland is known for colourful weather. It can sometimes show you all 4 seasons in one day.
Dressing for this sort of weather can be a challenge so we always recommend dressing in layers. 3 or 4 upper layers are highly recommended such as a light t-shirt (preferably wool) next to the skin, then a fleece or heavy wool garment, topped off with a waterproof windbreaker.
Jeans are not recommended for our trips as they become very heavy, cold and uncomfortable to wear when they get wet.
Lightweight hiking pants, track pants or long cotton pants are best and then wind/waterproof pants over. We also recommend using sunglasses and sunscreen even if it is cloudy due to the high UV and sunlight reflecting off of the glacier.
You will need sturdy hiking boots that fit crampons for the glacier hiking tours. If you do not own a pair then we rent out good hiking boots as well as a waterproof raincoat and trousers.
We recommend bringing your own backpack on our full day or 1/2 day tours. It’s great to carry a small lunch and some extra clothing.
You can bring your camera along, and you should definitely bring one since the setting on the tour is full of amazing, scenic views.
This is, of course, a personal choice, we have often had pregnant women on our trips. We recommend you take a close look at our trip description and difficulty rating, they will hopefully give you a better idea. It is also good to contact your physician, pregnant women’s health can be quite different. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions or concerns.
We do not provide lunch on any of our trips, so we recommend you bring your own lunch (for the longer trips), snacks and a bottle of water (you can refill it on the trip).
Crampons are metal spikes that we attach to the soles of your hiking shoes, these enable you to walk on the glacier ice without slipping.
Yes, there is a specially trained and certified glacier guide on every glacier tour that we offer.
When glacier hiking you will be provided with an ice axe, harness and helmet. This will help you to complete the tour safely.
When snow stays long enough in one place it turns to ice. Over long periods of time, the ice layers up becoming huge blocks called glaciers. As there is a lot of snow in Iceland, it forms to create ginormous glaciers that sweep across huge masses of land. Iceland is home to Europe’s largest glacier named Vatnajökull. This Glacier Guide will also tell you everything you may want to know about Glaciers.
Rain is not uncommon in Iceland. However, we do not let the rain stop our tours. This is why having appropriate clothing is very important to keep you warm and dry. Nature is not something that we can control and therefore we need to adapt to the weather. If your safety is compromised by going on the tour, we will cancel and you will be fully refunded.
This guide to Glacier Hiking includes all the information you might need when preparing for a glacier hike.
