This tour is an amazing opportunity for guests looking to maximise their sightseeing on the South Coast by ensuring their privacy, and the professionalism of their guide. 

Your guide will pick you up at your location and drive straight to Hvolsvöllur where you will make your first stop at the Lava centre, an exhibition about volcanoes, eruptions and earthquakes. A visit here is sure to get you in the mood for discovering more of Iceland’s nature. 

Next, you will pay a visit to Seljalandsfoss, a powerful waterfall which you can walk behind, thus providing a brilliant and unique perspective of the falls.

Finally, you will head to Dyrhólaey, a towering rock arch that has become one of the South Coast’s most iconic attractions. Not only do visitors here gain an impressive vantage point over the surrounding landscape, but they can also watch the wide variety of bird life that nests in the cliffsides. After your time here is done, you will head back to your accommodation.

BEAUTIFUL SOUTH COAST

Our south coast tour is one of the best ways to experience Iceland in one day. We travel to the south where we will find two magnificent waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss. One of which we can walk behind for that extra special experience.

We visit the Iceland Erupts visitor center in Þorvaldseyri where you can get to know the massive Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

We visit Skógarfoss, a stunning waterfall with that is believed to hold a pot off gold at it’s bottom. From there we go and see the magnificent headland Dyrhóley with it’s charming lighthouse on top and rough seas around it.

We also travel to Reynisfjara which is one of the most stunning black beaches in the world. From there you can see far out to the sea on a clear day and get to experience the ferocity of the Atlantic ocean.

And last but not least we visit the beautiful town Vík í Mýrdal, the southernmost village in Iceland.
