Day Trip Iceland

September 1st, 2010

From Vik, the southernmost tip of Iceland we drove east towards Skogar for a day trip to the Skogafoss Waterfall, one of the biggest falls in Iceland and a popular touristic attraction.

Driving along the south coast of Iceland we stopped in a lot of small village where we made day trips and did some sightseeing before driving to the next town.

The choice to drive to the small Icelandic village of Skogar was easy and we were really excited about the Skogafoss Waterfall hike we had planned.

The Skogafoss is world famous for its multiple rainbows on sunny days as the amount of water is sprays around is large but unfortunately is was rather cloudy when we visited the falls so we didn't see any of that.

After a break to enjoy the waterfall we continued our hike up the hill along the eastern side of Skogafoss following the trail that leads to a pass in between to glaciers.

The view of the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull was breathtaking and definitely worth the steep climb!
