Description

Discover top South Coast destinations, including Skogafoss waterfall, Reynisfjara black sand beach, and Vik village on this magical seven-hour private tour. Travelers keen to marvel at natural wonders in one of the country’s most-loved areas should book this private tour now.

Your day begins with a pick-up in a private vehicle from your Selfoss accommodation. The car fits up to four passengers, so this private tour is perfect for couples, families, solo travelers, or small groups.

Enjoy the luxury of traveling in a modern vehicle without waiting for other tour participants as you set off across the magnificent landscapes of the South Coast. Check out the scenery from your window as you travel across the countryside. You will see striking natural features in clear weather, such as the Eyjafjallajokull volcano.

The day’s first stop is at Seljalandsfoss, a pristine waterfall around 200 feet (60 meters) high. This unique waterfall has a cavern behind it, making it possible to circle the waterfall and see it from all angles. Ensure you’ve got your waterproof gear on for this one!

Your next stop is the mighty Skogafoss waterfall nearby. It drops from a similar height to Seljalandsfoss but spans an impressive 82 feet (25 meters) wide. 

Skogafoss boasts awe-inspiring power and a stunning setting. You might even see a rainbow in front, creating a picture-perfect effect on sunny days.

After Skogafoss, your group will head to Reynisfjara, a world-famous black sand beach. Here you can appreciate the dramatic cliffs, towering basalt columns, and strong waves crashing to the shore.

Reynisfjara is a beach like no other. You’ll also see the Reynisdrangar sea stacks jutting out from the ocean. Local folklore says these basalt pillars were trolls, frozen by the sun when they attempted to steal a ship.

After Reynisfjara, your group will stop at Vik, Iceland’s southernmost mainland village. Travelers love Vik for its picturesque setting and proximity to top South Coast attractions. You can enjoy spending time at this quaint and peaceful settlement and grab a few refreshments while there.

Summer travelers will visit the rock arch of Dyrholaey after Vik. It’s an excellent photography location and is a favorite puffin nesting site during the warmer months. You’ll love watching these adorable birds with their large bills capable of carrying several small fish at once.

Winter travelers will begin the journey back to Selfoss after visiting Vik. When the sky darkens, see if you can spot the aurora borealis. Clear, dark skies offer the best chance of watching the lights dance overhead, and the South Coast provides excellent viewing opportunities.

Throughout your private tour, feel free to ask your friendly guide any questions you have about the nature and culture of Iceland. Booking this private tour allows travelers the flexibility of customization and additional stops.

After an unforgettable day exploring some of the country’s top natural treasures, your driver will take you back to your Selfoss accommodation.

Don’t miss the chance to visit must-see South Coast attractions, such as stunning waterfalls, beaches, and villages, on this seven-hour private tour from Selfoss. Check availability now by choosing a date.
