Description

The south coast of Iceland has limitless beauty for the traveler. Where in the world can you get so close to a glacier, as you can in Iceland? We drive past extraordinary glaciers and waterfalls on our way to the black sand beach at Reynisfjara. One of many such beaches in Iceland, this one is the most popular one as it is close to the main highway and also for it's extreme beauty and contrast. You do not only see black volcanic sand and terrific waves but you could also see the most common bird of Iceland, the puffin. On our way to Reynisfjara, we stop at three astonishing waterfalls and we also go into the most southern town in Iceland, Vik. Urridafoss is one of the most voluminous waterfalls in the country, Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss are both coming from the country's 6.th largest volcano, Eyjafjallajökull. Join us on this packed day full of adventures and happiness. You will not regret it.

We begin by picking you up about 30 minutes before leaving the city which should be at 8:00 am. 
Then we drive towards the south-east coast and make our first stop at the beautiful and voluminous waterfall, Urridafoss which means Brown Trout waterfall. We stop there for about 15 minutes while we walk towards the waterfall and take beautiful pictures. 
Our next stop will be Seljalandsfoss, a remarkable and beautiful waterfall that is coming directly from the 6.th largest volcano in Iceland, Eyjafjallajokull. We stop there for about 45 minutes, while we walk to the waterfall and if conditions allow it, walk behind it. Pictures can be taken but mind you, the water is wet so precautions should be taken to protect the camera at least. 
From there we drive directly to the black sand beach at Reynisfjara. We stop there for 60 minutes, while we walk towards the beach, pickup troll tears and look for Noah in his cave. After a delightful walk on the volcanic sandy beach, we head back to the car and drive for a few minutes into the small but beautiful town of Vik. Vik used to be the only fishing village in Iceland without at harbor. Now, it is mostly a trading point and tourist attraction as well as home to many people. From Vik we return to Reykjavik but on the way we stop for 45 minutes at Skogarfoss, a majestic waterfall also coming from Eyjafjallajokull. If you are up to it, you can take the steps up to the viewing deck for an amazing view over the waterfall. There is no defibrillator up there, so I will stay on the ground. After a beautiful day we head back to the city and estimate arrival there at 6:00 pm.
