Discover the unbeatable beauty of Iceland’s South Coast on this full-day private tour from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to explore stunning natural wonders, including pristine waterfalls, beaches, and the mesmerizing Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, should book this trip now.

Your exciting day begins with pick-up from your Reykjavik accommodation. You’ll greet the experienced guide and board a comfortable vehicle. 

Private excursions mean you won’t need to wait for anyone else and can maximize your sightseeing time. Your expert guide will ensure you see the top sites, and you can focus on relaxing and enjoying the ride. 

Private trips also offer a flexible itinerary tailored to your interests. You could spend longer at some attractions and less time at others, ensuring a personalized day that meets your needs.

Today, your driver will take you to the best attractions along the South Coast, one of the country’s most breathtaking areas. 

The tour’s first stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This gorgeous cascade has a path encircling it, so you can walk behind it for unique and spectacular views. Ensure you wear waterproof gear, as you may get wet!

Skogafoss is another much-loved waterfall nearby, known for its power and beauty. Although it falls from a similar height to Seljalandsfoss, it’s an astounding 82 feet (25 meters) wide.

The terrain below Skogafoss is relatively flat. Therefore, you can get quite close to it for excellent photos. During summer, ascend the staircase next to the falls and admire its splendor from a different angle.

Next on the itinerary is Reynisfjara black sand beach. Its jet-black sands, basalt columns, and mighty waves create an awe-inspiring setting for exploration. The Reynisdrangar sea stacks stand proudly amid the sea, fascinating structures reported to be trolls turned to stone.

Vik village is Iceland’s southernmost mainland settlement. It boasts magnificent coastal views, including the Reynisdrangar sea stacks and dramatic cliffs. Enjoy the atmosphere of this charming village, a must-visit attraction for its peaceful and scenic surroundings.

The tour’s next stop is the Dyrholaey viewpoint, which boasts a fantastic rock arch. Here, you can marvel at the picturesque vistas that change with the seasons. Whether the landscape is dotted with summer’s wildflowers or covered in winter’s snow blanket, it’s sure to impress.

Afterward, your driver will take you to the Fjadrargljufur canyon. This striking natural wonder features steep rock faces and a winding river below, making it a picture-perfect destination.

Heading further east, you’ll reach the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Most South Coast day trips from Reykjavik don’t travel this far east, yet Jokulsarlon is a bucket list attraction for most travelers. 

Jokulsarlon is also called the ‘Crown Jewel of Iceland,’ and it’s easy to see why. Towering icebergs float gracefully in serene water, creating a scene that looks straight from a fairytale. Keep an eye out for seals basking on the icebergs or swimming through the water, adding more magic to your visit.

The tour’s final stop is the nearby Diamond Beach. Giant ice chunks float from Jokulsarlon to sea and then wash ashore at the beach. They twinkle like diamonds on the shore and contrast beautifully with the beach’s black sands.

After an unforgettable day exploring the natural treasures of the South Coast, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik. It’s a long ride back, but a comfortable one in your private vehicle and another opportunity to admire the scenery from your window.

Don’t miss the chance to embark on this once-in-a-lifetime private day trip from Reykjavik, exploring enchanting waterfalls, beaches, and the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Check availability now by choosing a date.
