Oslo is the capital city of Norway, located on the south-eastern edge of the country at the head of the Oslo Fjord. It has a unique topography as it is surrounded by forest cover and mountains on three sides while the fourth side opens up to the North Sea. It is the financial, administrative, and commercial centre of the country and is the most populated city in Norway. Oslo has witnessed a tumultuous history in its more than a 1000-year-old lifespan, being ravaged by multiple fires, to name and location changes, to finally finding its calling as a cultural and administrative centre in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the 21st century, Oslo is recognised as one of the global cities of the world owing to its strong maritime business and trade links.

Seljalandsfoss is part of the Seljandsáriver, which has its origins in Eyjafjallajökull glacier. What makes Seljalandsfoss so famous and interesting is that you can walkbehind it. We recommend you bring either a raincoat or awaterproof coat along if you want to walk behind it.Skógafoss, another famous Icelandic waterfall, is the startingpoint of the Fimmvörðuháls walk over to Þórsmörk. The waterfallwas also used in the films Thor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.We will also stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach, with the Reynisdrangar rock formations and columnar basalt. It is one ofthe most spectacular beaches in Iceland but can be dangerous,and we kindly ask our guests not to go too close to the ocean andgo by guidelines.In 1973 a United States Navy DC plane ran out of fuel and crashedon the black beach at Sólheimasandur, in the South Coast ofIceland. Fortunately, everyone in that plane survived. Later it turned out that the pilot had simply switched over to the wrongfuel tank. The remains are still on the sand very close to the sea. There is actually no road or clear track to the plane wreck and ittakes a bit longer walk to reach the plane wreck. Additionally, we will stop by Sólheimajökull and walk up to a smalllake which has formed in front of the retreating glacier.
