Solheimasandur, Iceland

Join this unique tour to see the South coast waterfalls, the famous plane wreck in Solheimsandur, Solheimajokull glacier hiking and explore a secret lava cave. Steering clear of the crowds and experiencing a full day of incredible attractions. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to go hiking on a glacier, bathing in a hot spring and descending into a volcanic cave... all in one day. Your adventure begins at Solheimajokull glacier, where we will hike up to the glacier tongue Solheimajokull, which is a part of Myrdalsjokull, one of the biggest glaciers in Europe.

After the glacier hike, we head out to a black sand beach that has also been a site of a DC3 aeroplane wreck since the fifties. Your guide will show you around and tell you the story of this aeroplane wreck. Here you will have the opportunity to explore this area in the coolest way imaginable.

Your last stop will not be disappointing, as next, you will head to explore the inside of a 5000-year-old lava tube, which formed in a volcanic eruption. Reserve this unique tour as soon as possible. It is the only tour that takes you to the plane wreck and all these amazing sights in one day. It's therefore extremely popular and there is very limited availability.
