Overview
This tour from Reykjavik covers the highlights of Iceland’s south coast in a single day. Travel by minibus to the waterfalls of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the black-sand beach of Reynisfjarna, and the Solheimajokull Glacier, where you’ll walk right up to touch the ice. Learn about the area’s unique geology and culture from your guide along the way, and enjoy convenient hotel pickup and drop-off for a hassle-free day.
Highlights
  • Enjoy convenient hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Learn about lesser-known history and culture from your guide
  • Travel by minibus and leave navigation to someone else
  • Take a guided walk to the edge of a glacier
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a morning pickup in a minibus from your Reykjavik hotel. Along the way, your guide introduces you to the geology, history, and folklore of the small but fascinating country of Iceland. Stop at the thundering waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss and, on a clear day, see the famed Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which caused air-travel havoc when it erupted in 2010. The next stop is Reynisfjara to see a black-sand beach, as well as surrounding basalt columns and towering sea stacks. In summer, look out for puffins and other seabirds, and take a lunch break here or in the neighboring village of Vík (own expense). Next, head for Solheimajokull glacier, one of the outlet tongues of the icecap Myrdalsjokull. Walk right up to the glacier’s edge and touch the ice. With luck, you might even find an ice cave. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel

I highly recommend this tour operator. I had 3 tours with Geoiceland and they all were AWESOME. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. They told a lot of interesting stories about Iceland, its traditions and interesting facts. I was visiting mid-November and

A fantastic day out with tour guide Wally who was very entertaining! A whistle stop tour of some amazing spots - with the glacier and black sand beach our highlights. It was an extremely windy day which limited our ability to fully appreciate some of the sights and take photos -
