Southern Iceland Glaciers, Waterfalls and Beaches Day Tour
From US$89.90
Overview
Most visitors to Iceland concentrate on the Golden Circle, often missing out on the impressive south coast. This full-day tour from Reykjavik is a fuss-free way around the south coast’s attractions, and a convenient alternative to exploring independently. You visit must-sees such as Reynisfja beach and the Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls. Plus, enjoy background on the sights from a guide, and air-conditioned hotel and port transfers in Reykjavik.
What to Expect
After hotel or cruise port pickup in Reykjavik, settle aboard an air-conditioned bus and travel to Iceland’s south coast, famous for its natural beauty.

Head for the small village of Vik, known for its stellar sea views, and walk on the black sands of Reynisfjara beach, admiring its basalt-column cliffs.

Next, continue to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Take in the beauty of the fall and walk behind the cascade to Skogafoss, whose waters plunge down a 197-foot (60-meter) drop. Make the most of the many photo ops as the falls and scenery promise some stunning shots.

Finally, take a short walk to the glacier edge of Solheimajokull, a sublet glacier of Myrdalsjokull. The glaciers are constantly moving, and make some of Iceland’s most incredible sights.

Marvel at the sizes of the glaciers before your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel or another, central location in Reykjavik.

LOVED it

Great experience. We saw so much of Iceland with this tour. The guides were outstanding and very happy to teach us about the area, history and the local language. Highly recommend. The waterfalls were the highlight of our trip.

Very rushed - Southern Iceland tour

Overall, an ok tour, but compared to other tours we took it felt very rushed. For example, we had 30 minutes to hike to the top of the waterfall, run to the bottom, to walk the beach path to the waterfall and get a bathroom...More

This is a “don’t miss” tour!

We took the tour with Bus Travel Iceland. Our guide, Halla, was the best! We saw beautiful sights and got plenty of historical, geological and geographical education. The bus held 19-20 people, so the small group was I would recommend this tour and tour company...More
