Discover the South Coast’s most famous attractions on an exclusive 10-hour private summer tour. Travelers keen to explore the highlights of this much-loved region in Iceland should book this excursion from Selfoss now.

Your full-day trip begins from Selfoss, a town in South Iceland. Selfoss is approximately 37 miles (60 kilometers) from Reykjavik. It’s an excellent base to explore Iceland’s most well-known areas, including the Golden Circle sightseeing route and the South Coast.

An experienced driver-guide will pick you up from your Selfoss accommodation. This tour offers a private experience, so you won’t need to wait for other travelers. Instead, enjoy a personalized service with quality interaction from your guide. All guides are fluent English speakers, and some also speak Slovak and Czech proficiently.

You’ll travel in style aboard a modified luxury SUV. The vehicle is modern, spacious, and comfortable for up to six people. This means you can book the experience as a solo traveler, a couple, a family, or with your friends.

When you’re ready, you’ll depart to explore the stunning coastline and its enchanting attractions.

The day’s first stop is Skogafoss waterfall, one of the country’s most magnificent cascades. It falls from a height of around 197 feet (60 meters) and is an astounding 82 feet (25 meters) wide.

The terrain at the waterfall’s base is relatively flat, so you can walk quite close to it. It’s easy to feel dwarfed in its presence and you can take your time to bask in its glory.

Because this is a summer tour, you should be able to climb the staircase next to the falls. Walk up the steps for a spectacular view from above, and ensure your camera is ready to capture the moment.

Your next stop is Reynisfjara black sand beach, named one of the best non-tropical beaches globally. Reynisfjara has awe-inspiring features and offers picture-perfect photo opportunities.

The Reynisdrangar sea stacks, reported to be trolls turned to stone at daylight according to folklore, stand proudly in the ocean. Basalt columns line the shore, while towering cliffs and powerful waves add to the beach’s allure.

Vik village is the next stop on the tour. It’s Iceland’s southernmost mainland settlement, boasting quaint charm and natural beauty. Your guide will lead you around its idyllic streets and show you its cultural highlights.

You can also marvel at the village’s sweeping coastal vistas, including another perspective of the Reynisdrangar sea stacks. The lush green countryside comes alive in summer, and you can appreciate mesmerizing views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The day’s final attraction is the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, another well-known South Coast cascade. It falls from a similar height to Skogafoss but features a delicate beauty rather than the surreal power you witnessed at Skogafoss.

Seljalandsfoss has a path encircling it, so you can walk behind the waterfall for a unique vantage point. Stand in awe behind the curtain of water in a setting that feels straight from a fairytale. Remember to wear your waterproof gear, as you may get wet!

After an unforgettable day exploring majestic waterfalls, beaches, and villages, your private driver will drop you back at your accommodation in Selfoss.
