Iceland is known for its waterfalls, and today you’ll start to experience why. Beginning on the Southern coast, we visit the 197ft high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. Its origin is a volcanic glacier, and name is derived from the Seljalands River it flows through. Skogafoss Waterfall flows directly from two glaciers, and Dyrholaey Cliffs drop into the sea, creating dramatic picturesque views. The Fjadrargljufur Canyon is also along Ring Road, and not to be missed. Be sure to bring your camera on this hike to capture the incredible views of rock, water, and natural ecosystem. ECOTOUR.

Massive ice formations float in the crystal blue waters, reflecting the sky and land around.
