Description

Take a trip from Reykjavik to the scenic south coast of Iceland on this full-day, guided tour. Explore Skógafoss Waterfall, Reynisfjara Beach and other gorgeous locations that reflect the beauty of Iceland. Hotel pick-up/drop-off and transport via a mini-bus are included.

Driving south on Highway 1, we’ll introduce you to the geology, history and folklore of Iceland, while we stop at the magnificent waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. You will also see, depending on the conditions, Iceland’s newest star, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, that erupted in 2010.

Following the coastline, we’ll take a detour to a beautiful black sand beach called Reynisfjara. There we can get close to basaltic rock pillars, enjoy the view of a group of sea stacks, and witness the power of the sea. Puffins also nest in this area during the summer.

Another site of the South Coast is the small town of Vík, where we’ll take the lunch stop (now we also have another option for lunch at Reynisfjara, so depending on weather, timing, and amount of people, we might have lunch by the black sand beach at Reynisfjara). The gastronomic selection once outside Reykjavik is the one of a sparsely populated country like Iceland, where the fuel stations are the blood line. Don’t expect fancy restaurants.

After the breath-taking beauty of Reynisfjara coastal scenery, we’ll head out towards the glacier Sólheimajökull, one of the outlet tongues of the ice cap Mýrdalsjökull. We’ll walk right up to the glacier’s edge, and get to touch it. If in luck, we might even find an ice-cave.

Please note: Pick up starts 30 minutes before departure time. Please be ready at 08:30 at your pick-up location.
