Description

Explore Iceland's breathtaking South Coast and embark on an exciting glacier hike by booking this incredible guided excursion. Those eager to see sights like the Reynisfjara black-sand beach and feel the power of an ice cap beneath their feet should book this private tour now.

Your tour starts in the morning with pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. You'll then meet the expert English-speaking guide leading your South Coast adventure.

This excursion is a private trip, meaning it will be just you and your party. There's no need to wait for other guests, and you can tailor the tour to your needs, spending more or less time at each destination as you prefer. You'll also have plenty of opportunity to speak to your guide and ask them any questions you have about the attractions.

Once you're comfortable in your private vehicle, you'll leave Reykjavik and travel along the South Coast.

One of the stops on this combination sightseeing and glacier-hiking tour is the gorgeous Reynisfjara black-sand beach. The beach is famous for its towering basalt columns and jagged sea stacks rising from the ocean. Visitors come to see its unique landscape and the opportunity to witness powerful waves crashing against the shore. It's also an excellent place to see the jet-black volcanic sands that make Iceland's beaches special.

Just along the coastline from Reynisfjara are the Dyrholaey cliffs. These cliffs are notable for their spectacular views and rock formations. They offer panoramic views of the surrounding coastline and the North Atlantic Ocean. Visitors may even see seabirds like puffins nesting on the cliffs during summer.

In addition to coastal sightseeing, you'll embark on a glacier hike on the Solheimajokull glacier. Solheimajokull is an outlet glacier of the mighty Myrdalsjokull ice cap.

When you arrive at the glacier, your experienced glacier guide will give you a thorough safety briefing and provide you with all the necessary safety equipment, including crampons, a helmet, and an ice axe.

Step onto the ice and explore the glacier's unique features, including deep crevasses and stunning ice formations. Your guide will be able to tell you more about the glacier's formation and history and its impact on Iceland's environment.

Glacier hiking is a fantastic way to experience the ice caps up close. As you trek across the frozen terrain, you'll encounter cracks and crevasses in the ice. It's an unforgettable experience.

At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your accommodation in Reykjavik, ready to continue your adventures in Iceland.

Don't miss this unbeatable experience discovering the sights of Iceland's South Coast and taking a glacier hike on Solheimajokull glacier. Check availability now by choosing a date.
