Description

Explore the south coast of Iceland on this 10-hour private tour from Reykjavík. Discover some of the country's most memorable gems as you take in the volcanic landscape running alongside the Atlantic Ocean on theway to Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls and the black sands of Reynisfjarna.

Meet your private guide at your hotel at 9am and begin your full day tour of Iceland's southern coast.

Travel along Route 1 east of Reykjavík past the towns of Selfoss, Hella, and Hvölsvöllur. Make your first stop at Seljalandsfoss, possibly Iceland's most-photographed waterfall, which you can actually walk behind. Drive around 25 minutes to the next stop, past the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano which erupted in 2010 and brought air traffic to a standstill in a lot of European countries. At Skogafoss, take the time to soak up the views and photograph this charming waterfall, with luck you will see a rainbow appear in the spray.

Back in the vehicle, it is another 30 minutes to the black beach of Reynisfjara. From a safe distance — the sea is unpredictable and powerful here — enjoy the view from the cliffs near the ocean and the huge waves. See why filmmakers have used this beach in numerous kinds of films.

Take a break at the small peninsula of Dyrhólaey, known for its lighthouse, and afterward in Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland, noted for its quaint church perched high on a hill.

At around 7pm, arrive back at your hotel and say goodbye to your guide.

Please note: A minimum of two adults per booking is required.
