South Coast tour | Audio guided in 10 languages

Based on 3 traveller reviews

Jump aboard this incredible bus tour to marvel over the beautiful South Coast of Iceland, while receiving commentary in your native language. This unique, personal and modern bus tour is sure to inform, entertain, and stay with you for life.

You will be picked up from your Reykjavík accommodation from 08:30 am, and the first thing you will notice is the features on the bus. Each guest has a tablet with free-wifi, USB plug-ins, and, most importantly, a ‘Smart In-Bus Audio Guide’. This will allow you to listen to commentary about your surroundings in English, Spanish, Mandarin, German, Dutch, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese and Korean.

Of course, your audio guide cannot answer questions, so you will also have a host on board who can help with any additional queries that you have. Therefore, by the end of the tour, you will know everything you want to about each of the many features that you will pass.

The South Coast tour takes you through a wealth of incredible landscapes. The first you will come across after leaving Reykjavík is the Hengill area, best known for its volcanic peaks, otherworldly lava fields, and hot springs. On clear days, you can see Hekla volcano, and sometimes even Eyjafjallajökull, the notorious glacial volcano that erupted in 2010.

As you travel from here, just a few kilometres off the coastline, you may also be able to see the Vestmannaeyjar Islands, also called the Westman Islands, rising dramatically from the surface of the ocean.

The next stops will be at two waterfalls, each as unique and as they are beautiful. You’ll have a chance to stroll through the verdant fields at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, and even take a path behind the plunging water. At Skógarfoss, you can walk right up to where the water is crashing down, and take a flight of stairs to the very top. The views from up here are magnificent.

Sólheimajökull glacier is the next stop on the way; you will be able to walk right up to the edge of the glacier and marvel over its striations of black ash and vivid blue ice. Its diverse colouration and the contrast of the snow against the surrounding black lava make this a very popular site for photographers.

Your final stop is at Reynisfjara black sand beach. This is considered one of Iceland’s most beautiful coastal stretches. It’s mighty rock arch, Dyrhólaey, has rare hexagonal black columns, and is home to many puffins during the summer. 

Offshore, you will see two magnificent sea stacks rising tall from the ocean surface. These are called Reynisdrangar and are believed to be wading trolls that were petrified to stone in the light of the morning sun. 

The South Coast is absolutely magnificent, and to hear all about it in your native tongue is not an opportunity many are lucky enough to get. Don’t miss your chance to experience it. Check availability by choosing a date

Reviews

Toll! The tour was great, guide and driver are both professional and friendly, I'll recommend that to friends~

It was great tour! Nice people, nice guide and driver, and the logistic itself was very nice. Although first two stops were not much justified FMPOV - long stop for morning coffee in petrol station was just twice as long as it could be, and the stop at glacier (there is not much to do there is you are not going to glacier hike), but the rest was just perfect. Nice views on the sea, amazing Black Sand Beach, and the waterfalls - it was legendary trip to remember.

It was good to be in the group.
