Tour the justly popular south coast of Iceland and discover the country's wild and diverse nature at its very best. Explore glaciers, steep cliffs, roaring waterfalls, and black sand beaches. Get insight into the region from your local driver-guide on a minibus day tour from Reykjavik.
In the early morning, ready for a full-day tour and dressed in warm, waterproof clothing with sturdy footwear, get picked up from Reykjavik. Board the minibus and say hello to your driver-guide and group of no more than 19 people. Travel east from Reykjavík, along Iceland´s southern coast, and visit two magnificent waterfalls. Around 1.5 hours from Reykjavík, Seljalandsfoss is a 239-foot (73-meter) beauty that you can walk behind. Skogafoss, a further 25 minutes east, is a 196-foot (60-meter) roaring giant that you can approach as close as you dare. Head on toward the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, Iceland´s southernmost point, which has magnificent sea caves to explore (the accessibility depends on the tide). Admire the basalt column rocks surrounding the beach. You will also go to Vík i Mýrdal to admire the sea stacks. Legend has it that the stack is in fact made up of the frozen figures of trolls who were turned to stone while playing in the sea. Visit in midsummer, and you will possibly also see puffins at the nearby Dyrhólaey cliffs. Drive on and visit Solheimajökull glacier, an ever-changing and moving natural wonder.Return to your original departure point around 10-11 hours after you set out.
