Discover the breathtaking waterfalls of Iceland's South Coast and explore one of the country's magical ice caves by booking this private tour. Those eager to spend a whole day making the most of Iceland's sightseeing and adventuring opportunities without worrying about other guests should not hesitate to book this excursion.

You'll start this incredible experience when your guide picks you up in Reykjavik and whisks you through some beautiful countryside landscapes en route to the South Coast's most famous sites. 

As you travel, you can ask your guide as many questions as you like as there are no other tourists on this private trip to disturb you. They'll be happy to tell you about the landscapes, folklore, and life in the country.

You'll first stop at the waterfall of Seljalandsfoss, which tumbles from a height of 197 feet (60 meters) in a gentle cascade. Behind it is a path, allowing you to marvel over the beautiful water from unique angles for some excellent photos and unforgettable memories. 

Overlooked by most travelers, you'll find another waterfall named Gljufrabui just a short walk away. This landmark is nestled in a cliff and has a fairytale-like ambiance, made all the more special by the lack of other guests here.

The third waterfall you will reach is Skogafoss, which is slightly taller than Seljalandsfoss but much more powerful. Its width can be over a third of its height in midsummer, and when sunny, many rainbows curve from its blooming spray.

With these fantastic sites enjoyed, you'll continue to the base of one of Iceland's most active and famous volcanoes, Katla. This feature is capped by a gleaming glacier, Myrdalsjokull, where your ice-caving adventure awaits. Your guide will provide you with a helmet, ice ax, and pair of crampons before driving you up the peak in a super jeep.

This part of the trip is exciting, as you will be surrounded by sparkling, icy landscapes and spectacular views. Once you reach the Katla ice cave, you'll disembark, and your guide will lead you into its depths.

The ice cave's textures, shapes, and colors defy the imagination, and its winding corridors and ethereal chambers are otherworldly to explore. Your guide can help you take photos, which promise to be especially beautiful considering how light penetrates the translucent walls and ceiling.

After a fantastic journey in this magical place, you'll exit the cave for the spectacular drive down the slopes of Katla and back to Reykjavik.

Set out on the ultimate private South Coast adventure with this sightseeing and ice-caving tour from Iceland's capital. Check availability by choosing a date.
