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.
Highlights
  • See Iceland’s south-coast highlights on a day trip from Reykjavik 
  • Explore with a guide for background on each sight
  • See Seljalandsfoss and Skogafass waterfalls, glaciers, and Reynisfjara
  • One of most affordable south-coast tours, with a fuss-free itinerary
  • Convenient transfers from central Reykjavik hotels, plus port pickup
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.

Despite the heavy rain and strong winds this tour was great. Arni was a fantastic tour guide, really very enthusiastic and helpful. He offered and took a few great photos for everyone :) It was a memorable experience, especially hiking up behind the waterfall.

We had an excellent full day on this trip, we saw some amazing things, my favourite and maybe one of the best views I have ever experienced in my life was the sea and waves on the black sandy beach, it was enthralling. The tour was run efficiently and our guide was helpful,
