Experience the best of Iceland’s South Coast on this 11-hour private sightseeing tour with a thrilling glacier hiking experience. If you want to check off the Skogafoss waterfall, Solheimajokull glacier, and other highlights of the region from your bucket list, this immersive itinerary is for you.

Your private tour in Iceland begins with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. Travel comfortably in a spacious minibus, ensuring plenty of room to relax and enjoy the scenic drive. 

During the 11-hour trip, a friendly, English-speaking guide will be your primary source of information and assistance. They will provide insightful commentary and answer any questions you might have about the landscapes and attractions you’ll visit.

The private nature of this tour also offers numerous benefits, including the flexibility to tailor the itinerary to your interests and the opportunity to explore at your own pace. With a smaller group size, you’ll enjoy a more enriching and engaging experience with the full attention of your guide.

The first stop on your South Coast adventure is the breathtaking Skogafoss waterfall. This powerful waterfall has a drop of 200 feet (60 meters), making it one of Iceland’s largest and most picturesque. You’ll have time to explore the area, take in the views, and climb the stairs to the top for a different vantage point.

Next to explore is Solheimajokull, an outlet glacier of the mighty Myrdalsjokull ice cap. To elevate your time here, you will not only see its magnificent features but also hike above them.

After a safety briefing and being equipped with necessary gear such as crampons and ice axes, your guide will lead you onto the glacier. This short hike offers an up-close look at the glacier’s crevasses, ice formations, and the incredible blue ice. 

While on the ice, you’ll have plenty of learning and photo opportunities. Feel free to ask your guide for assistance or questions. 

The tour continues to the Reynisfjara black sand beach near Vik village. Known for its dramatic basalt columns and powerful Atlantic waves, Reynisfjara is the most famous black volcanic sand in Iceland. 

The Reynisdrangar sea stacks, rising from the ocean just off the shore, add to the beach’s otherworldly appearance. Your guide will share the geological and cultural significance of this unique site.

To cap off an extraordinary day, the last attraction on your itinerary is the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Seljalandsfoss offers a one-of-a-kind perspective and fantastic photo opportunities because of its unique cave that allows visitors to walk behind its water curtain.

After a full day of exploring the South Coast’s natural wonders, you’ll return to Reykjavik in the comfort of the minibus, reflecting on the unforgettable sights and experiences of the day.
