Experience the South Coast in your own way with this private tour. See some of the most beautiful spots in Iceland such as the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the black sands of Reynisfjara beach and Sólheimasandur desert, mighty glaciers and picturesque villages. Those looking for flexibility and create their own adventure should book this tour now.

The tour starts in the morning when you are picked up from your accommodations or, if you are a cruise ship passenger, from Reykjavík harbour’s cruise ship port. You will then be whisked away to the South’s countryside in a luxurious and comfortable vehicle.

The first stop is the beautiful waterfall Seljalandsfoss. This unique cascade falls over a small cave, making it possible to encircle the torrent of water fully. However, you will get drenched if you do this, so make sure you bring waterproof clothing.

Next up is another picturesque waterfall, Skógafoss. This one has a more classic shape as it falls 60 metres, creating a great mist as it hits the rocks below. Due to the amount of spray the cascade produces, a rainbow is continuously present on sunny days. 

You will then travel through the black desert of Sólheimasandur on your way to the charming village of Vík. This little town is situated right on the edge of Iceland’s most famous beach, Reynisfjara. You’ll have a chance to visit the beach and view the strange, hexagonal cliffs that surround it as well as the giant Reynisdrangar sea stack that rise out of the ocean like terrifying trolls.

On your way back, you will drive through the verdant farmlands so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for grazing Icelandic horses and sheep. Two majestic glaciers will look over you this entire journey; the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and the equally spectacular Mýrdalsjökull. 

At the end of a great day, you will head back to Reykjavík, arriving early in the evening so you will have plenty of time to explore the downtown area, with its museums, cafés and shops, before dinner.

Bring along your favourite people on this private tour and see the waterfalls, glaciers and black sands of the South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.
