Enjoy a private, guided tour of the magnificent South Coast sightseeing route from Reykjavik. Those eager to see waterfalls, black sand beaches, and glaciers should not hesitate to book this exciting 12-hour excursion.

The adventure begins when your guide picks you up from the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik. You’ll enjoy comfortable private transportation where your private guide can accommodate any questions you may have about the destinations that lie ahead.

Your first stop will be at the marvelous Skogafoss waterfall, where the waters cascade from a height of 197 feet (60 meters) and with a width of up to 82 feet (25 meters). Rainbows can project from the mists of this waterfall on sunny days.

Next, you will head to the Dyrholaey peninsula, where the Dyrholaey rock arch curves into the ocean from the cliffs on the coast. It is large enough for ships to enter and small planes to fly through.

If you’re traveling in the summer, you may get a chance to see the puffins nesting here. These migratory birds have little fear of people, allowing you to get close to them.

You will then reach Reynisfjara beach. This place is otherworldly, with black sands, bizarre geological formations, and enormous waves. The most notable sites here are the sea stacks of Reynisdrangar and the basalt columns at the cliffs of Reynisfjall.

After soaking in the ocean views, you will head over to the Solheimajokull glacier for a privately guided glacier hike that will get the adrenaline going. The trek will reward you with a stunning view of the South Coast.

Your last stop will be at the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall. A cavern underneath allows you to walk behind the waters, giving you a spectacular view of the landscape below.

Once you’ve taken in the day’s mystical attractions, you’re ready to head back to Reykjavik. You’ll arrive back in the capital in time for dinner, drinks, or a northern lights hunt if you’re traveling in winter.

Don’t miss this fantastic private day tour around the best sites of the South Coast in Iceland, away from big crowds and other tourists. Check availability now by choosing a date.
