The glacier snout Sólheimajökull is the southwestern outlet of Mýrdalsjökull. It is about 8 km long and 1-2 km wide. Sometimes ice caves are created at the edge of the glacier tounge but do not enter them as it can be very hasardous. The ice is constantly moving and parts of their ceilings collapes frequently!


Skógafoss waterfall is situated at the cliffs of the former southern coastline. It is one of the biggest waterfals in the country with a width of 25 m (82 ft) and a drop of 60 m ( 200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistenly produces, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days. It is truly a beautiful sight and a perfect last destination for this Iceland holidays family adventure day tour.
