Visit the top attractions of Iceland’s beloved South Coast before having the adventure of a lifetime with a hike on the Solheimajokull glacier when you book this private tour from Reykjavik. Travelers looking for a unique addition to their South Coast day trip should book this tour now. 

A private tour gives you and your group the benefit of flexibility and ensures complete attention from your experienced guide. The day starts with a pick-up from your choice of Reykjavik bus stops before heading out towards the South Coast. 

Your first stop is at the majestic Seljalandsfoss waterfall, sure to wow with a drop of 200 feet (60 meters). This waterfall is unique because you can take a path behind the falls, offering a unique perspective. 

Next, you will head to the neighbor of Seljalandsfoss, the famous Skogafoss waterfall. Skogafoss is about the same height as its neighbor but stands apart due to its intense power and the gorgeous rainbows created by the resulting spray. 

Reynisfjara black sand beach is one of the most stunning and well-loved attractions on the South Coast, and it is easy to see why. The contrast between the black volcanic sand and the crashing white waves of the Atlantic Ocean is a sight to behold.

From the beach, you can see the imposing Reynisdrangar sea stacks jutting up from the Atlantic ocean. These impressive rock formations are steeped in Icelandic legend and are one of the best photo opportunities of the day. 

The final activity of today’s tour is extraordinary and allows you to experience Iceland in a way that will create lasting memories. Hiking across the Solheimajokull glacier is an awe-inspiring experience and a must-do for adventurous travelers.

Solheimajokull glacier is an outlet glacier of the larger Myrdalsjokull ice cap. Myrdalsjokull is one of the largest ice caps in Iceland and is notorious for sitting atop the infamous Katla volcano. 

Trekking on Solheimajokull is a fantastic activity for anyone with moderate hiking ability. Before leading the way on your beautiful glacier hike, your guide will outfit you with the necessary safety equipment, such as a harness, helmet, and ice ax. 

The glacier provides seemingly endless views of Myrdalsjokull and the distant mountains. Your guide will help you safely traverse the crevasses and ice formations as you hike across the icy expanse, giving you a memorable experience before you return to Reykjavik. 

Travelers looking for an exciting glacier hiking adventure and the opportunity to visit some of South Iceland’s top attractions should book this private day tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
