After breakfast, you can choose whether you wish to use the time until lunch to do some more hiking in this wonderful valley or to just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. After lunch, we will start our drive back. We will stop at Nautholagil, a narrow canyon with a healthy stream of water flowing down it. If you scramble up along the edge here you will have to wade the rest of the way to the end of the canyon where you will find a beautiful waterfall.
Then we will drive to Skogar, where we will see the magnificent Skogafoss Waterfall which cascades around 65 meters down from the ancient sea cliffs. At Skogar we will find two museums, a communal museum established in 1949 and a transportation museum, both are interesting museums to visit.
From Skogar we drive through Myrdalur where we can enjoy a view of the glacier of Myrdalsjokull, the fourth largest glacier in Iceland. Under it lies the central volcanic system of Katla, within which the last eruption occurred on October 12th, 1918. Southwest of the Myrdalsjokull lies the creeping glacier of Solheimajokull where we will put on the crampons and go for a hike on the glacier. This is a safe and easy glacier walk up onto the ice field with an experienced mountain guide, where a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses await your discovery.
After the glacier hike, we will drive back to Reykjavik where we will drop you off at your hotel in time for dinner.
