Ride from Reykjavik and journey to the south of Iceland. Stop to see the majestic Skógafoss waterfall. Walk along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, and reach Vik I Myrdal, the southernmost tip of the country. Visit hidden waterfalls on the way back, one underneath the Volcano Eyjafjallajökull.

My mom and I loved every minute of this trip! Our tour guide, Peter, shared so much good information and gave us plenty of time at our stops to explore on our own. The tour was canceled on the first day we had booked because of a blizzard in the south. Luckily we were able to reschedule to the following day and the conditions were perfect! Would definitely recommend!

Our guide was Michael and he was very professional funny and caring person and making sure your travel will be safe. He has a deep knowledge about Iceland and the local habits and you can learn a couple of icelandic words as well. The whole tour was very entertaining I would definitely recommend to go with Holiday Tours and enjoy the life in an icelandic way.
