Experience the striking beauty of Iceland’s South Coast on this private nine-hour South Coast sightseeing tour to Vik from Reykjavik. This relaxing South Coast tour is appropriate for anyone who wants to see waterfalls, glaciers, and the picturesque seaside village of Vik.

Your day begins when your private guide picks you up in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel or a landmark in Reykjavik. It takes two or three hours to reach Vik but stops along the way, and the beautiful scenery out your window makes the trip fly by. 

Your first stop is Hvolsvollur, a rural farming town. Stretch your legs along its quiet streets and take in the mountains, farms, and animals around you.

Iceland is famous for its natural features, and the South Coast waterfalls are some of the most breathtaking in Iceland and the entire world. The first one you’ll see is the Skogafoss waterfall, which flows almost 200 feet (60 meters). On sunny days, its mists create beautiful rainbows. 

If Skogafoss is full of other visitors, don’t fret. Your next stop is the lesser-known Kvernufoss waterfall. It’s almost 100 feet (30 meters) high, and you can capture stunning, up-close photos of its beauty. 

Another highlight of traveling along the South Coast is discovering Iceland’s black sand beaches. You’ll stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach, world-famous for its tall basalt stacks and rock formations. It’s a dramatic sight no matter what the weather. It was also a filming location for HBO’s Game of Thrones and is the subject of much Icelandic folklore.

You’ll be ready for lunch by the time you leave Reynisfjara. Vik has several options, and your expert guide can recommend the best spot according to your taste preferences. Fuel up because you have more spectacular attractions on the way back to Reykjavik.

The next stop is the Dyrholaey nature reserve. A picture-worthy volcanic rock arch juts out to the sea, so make sure you have your camera ready. Enjoy the panoramic vistas from this scenic peninsula, a puffin-nesting site during summer. 

This tour offers a fantastic combination of Iceland’s treasures, including waterfalls and black-sand beaches. Now it’s time to marvel at another incredible landscape with a gentle 20-minute hike to the Solheimajokull glacier viewpoint. 

The last stops for the day are at two more beautiful waterfalls. First up is the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It has a pathway behind the water, which offers a unique and awe-inspiring perspective.

Finally, a visit to the pristine Gljufrabui waterfall, hidden in a narrow canyon, is the perfect finish to an unforgettable day. It’s not as well known as Skogafoss or Seljalandsfoss, but it’s gorgeous and won’t disappoint.

After seeing Gljufrabui, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik.
