Join this day tour to the magnificent South Coast of Iceland. No traveller coming to this country should miss this fantastic journey where you can see, active volcanoes, incredible waterfalls, black sandy beaches while towering glaciers watch over you.

On this day tour, you'll start by exploring Seljalandsfoss, an incredible waterfall that falls over a concave cliff. From there, you'll head on towards Skógarfoss waterfall, one of the most beautiful cascades in the country. Next stop is the incredible Dyrhólaey promontory where you have a jaw-dropping view of the Atlantic Ocean.

On the way to the black sand beach Reynisfjara, you'll stop at Sólheimaökull glacier where you can capture an amazing selfie with the ancient ice in the background. You will then make your way towards Reynisfjara beach, with its incredible basalt columns cliffs and black sand stretching for kilometres both ways.

Your last stop is the charming little village of Vík in Mýrdal, a town in the middle of nowhere that is booming with tourism, local shops and the endless amount a character. After a nice stop there you will start making your way back to Reykjavík. 

As this is a private tour, you get to decide how long you'll spend at each location. The excursion usually lasts about 7-8 hours, but you can stay at each spot until you've soaked in the beauty of the place. There is no hurry.

If the weather allows, and you are not in a hurry to get back to the city, a few other stops can be made along the way. You could stop by some Icelandic horses, just be careful not to call them ponies, they do not like that.

Come along this tour and experience Iceland in a unique, private and fun way.
