Description

Your small-group full-day tour will take you through the ever-changing landscape of south Iceland to discover some of the country's biggest volcanoes, glaciers and most iconic waterfalls. After lunch (own expense) visit the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, see the famous Skogafoss waterfall and try walking behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Your guide will also point out several notorious volcanoes, including Hekla, Eyjafjallajokull and Katla. Hotel pick-up and drop-off is included.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel at 8:30am to begin your full-day guided bus tour through the south Iceland farming lands to the black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls, powerful volcanoes and majestic glaciers on the south Coast.

The first stop will be at Skogafoss. This is a picturesque 200-foot (60-meter) tall waterfall, and due to its striking appearance it is frequently used in movies and commercials.

After stopping at a local restaurant for a lunch break at your own expense, continue on a leisurely stroll along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. The beach features stacks of basalt columns that wall off surrounding cliffs scattered with caves. You will be awed by the incredibly powerful waves of the Atlantic ocean crashing on to the shore. Offshore you will see the Reynisdrangar pillars, basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea.

Next stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind the magnificent wall of water, right on the slopes of Eyjafjallajokull volcano.

On a clear day you will have a fantastic view of famous volcanoes such as Hekla and Eyjafjallajokull. You will also see the Westman Islands, a volcanic archipelago rising steeply from the ocean about 2 miles (3 kilometers) off the coast.

Your tour returns to Reykjavik at approximately 7 pm, where you will be dropped off near your hotel or at the bus terminal.
