Full description

Spend the day exploring the dramatic landscapes of the south of Iceland along with its coastline on a full-day sightseeing tour from Reykjavik. Along the way, discover a variety of rivers, waterfalls, mountains, and glaciers.

Following a pickup from listed hotels or guesthouses by bus in central Reykjavík, travel to the gorgeous waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. At the waterfall at Seljalandsfoss, walk behind the cascades and feel the spray on your face.

Continue to Skógafoss to marvel at the 60-meter drop. Pass the black sand beaches of the southern coast and enjoy the power of the sea.

Visit the glacier snout of Sólheimajökull to see an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull. Admire the ever-changing feat of nature up-close. Then, look at the basalt sea stacks at Reynisfjara, Iceland’s southernmost village just south of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, before returning to Reykjavik.

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience! Rain was forecast for later in the day, so our tour guide Iga switched up the itinerary a bit so that we could enjoy Reynisfjara Beach while still sunny. Each site was more amazing and beautiful than the next! We also appreciated Christoph’s safe driving, esp maneuvering a large bus in small parking lots! Highly recommend this tour!

The tour guide was very knowledable, gave great facts/suggestions and fun tips. The drive was smooth and safe. The tour was well planned and everything went smoothly, the only issue was the weather, it was so bad due to rain/wind so it ruined the adventure as some things were cut short (glasier walk) but the guild/excursion operator can not help that as it is due to safety.

This was such a great trip. We did the Golden Circle the day before which was really good but your this gave us a chance to see more of the beautiful landscapes in Iceland. The waterfalls and beaches were stunning and it helped that we were lucky enough to go on a really sunny day with blue skies.
