Hop on a specially modified 4x4 SUV with a local guide for this day tour of the South Coast, one of the most scenic routes in Iceland. After an exciting schedule, the day concludes with a Northern Lights hunt come nightfall. This tour is perfect for anyone looking to experience the most authentic natural wonders of Iceland in just one day. 

Your adventure begins with a pickup from Reykjavík City in the morning, where you will meet your local guide and start the driving along one of the most celebrated sightseeing routes in Iceland, the stunning South Coast. 

Among the attractions you will visit the fairytale-like Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can experience walking right behind the misty cascade, and the gorgeous 60-metre high Skógafoss waterfall just a short drive down the road. Further ahead, at Vík, we will make a stop at the black volcanic beach south of the village where you can view the rock formations of Dyrhólaey and Reynisdrangar. 

Finally, if the weather gods are smiling and the forecast is favourable, you have a chance to enjoy the incredible display of the Northern Lights dancing above, before you make your way back to Reykjavík.

Grab this opportunity to see the beautiful South Coast, an Icelandic horse show and perchance the Northern Lights, all in one exciting day. Check availability by choosing a date.
