Iceland's South Coast is one of the most popular regions for visitors due to its proximity to Reykjavik and its numerous awe-inspiring attractions. Your tour starts when you meet your guide in Reykjavik and head out towards the South Coast.
Your expert guide and driver is also your professional photographer, meaning that as you explore breathtaking locations throughout the day, you can rest assured that everything is captured on camera. This allows you to relax and enjoy time with friends and family without worrying about setting up shots.
Today you will be driving part of the famous Ring Road as it winds through the South Coast. This route circles the entire country, stopping at top landmarks along the way.
Your first stop is the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a beloved attraction cascading 200 feet (60 meters) over the cliff. This waterfall is unique because you can follow a path behind it for a different perspective.
The next stop is the neighboring Skogafoss waterfall, an iconic attraction that is one of the most popular sights in the entire country. This waterfall is similar in height to Seljalandsfoss, but its intense power and high likelihood of rainbows set it apart.
Dyrholaey is a unique rock formation over the Atlantic and a must-see when exploring the South Coast. You might spot some puffins nesting along the rock arch if you're lucky.
The nearby Reynisfjara black sand beach is a top South Coast attraction, and you will surely enjoy a walk down the black volcanic sand. The Reynisdrangar sea stacks rise from the Atlantic and create a perfect background for your pictures.
A midday stop in the nearby town of Vik allows you to grab lunch and coffee at one of the quaint cafes. This charming seaside village is ideal for a quick stroll to see the iconic red-roofed church at the edge of town.
After your lunch, it's time to explore the Vatnajokull National Park. The park is immense, encompassing the entire Vatnajokull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe, and numerous surrounding attractions.
You will quickly understand how Diamond Beach got its name. Strewn along the expanse of the black sand beach are chunks of clear ice, glittering in the sun like millions of diamonds.
Nearby is Iceland's crown jewel, the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Massive ancient icebergs float through the lagoon, truly inspiring awe. After an unforgettable day, your driver will take you back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.
