South Coast, Waterfalls and Paragliding
If you’re looking for top travel and sightseeing adventures worthy of your bucket-list, there’s nothing quite like the South Coast, Waterfalls and Paragliding tour.
On this tour you‘ll see amazing views of south Iceland, mountains, glaciers and cascading waterfalls from the ground and from the air soaring through the sky on a tandem paragliding flight.
Skógafoss waterfall, travelling through south Iceland the first natural landmark is Skógafoss waterfall, arguably the country‘s most iconic waterfall and one of south Iceland‘s star attraction.
Reynisfjara volcanic beach, from Skógafoss the tour continues east to Reynisfjara volcanic beach, home to the dramatic and imposing pyramid of basalt columns known as “the organ pipes” that jostle the surrounding cliffs and caves.
Following a short lunch break at Reynisfjara beach, you‘ll meet your paragliding pilots and embark on your paragliding sightseeing flight. Sailing through the skies you‘ll enjoy incredible panoramas, from the black volcanic coast to jagged mountain peaks and way up to the massive Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. No previous paragliding flight experience is required and certified, experienced pilots make sure your flight is safe and enjoyable.
After the paragliding flight, you'll be delivered to Sólheimajökull glacier for a 2 to 3 hour stop. Passengers from a Glacier hiking tour will join the tour and share the bus back to Reykjavik.
Back on the road towards Reykjavik, your last, but by no means the last stopis the iconic Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can literally walk behind a curtain of water; certainly a moment you’ll want to capture on camera.
