Go off the beaten track and discover the hidden gems of the South Coast on a capable 4x4 vehicle. Roll over rivers to reach the places little visited on this exciting day tour. If you want to enjoy one of Iceland’s most celebrated sightseeing routes away from the crowds, then this is the excursion for you. 

Your adventure begins as you get picked up in the city of Reykjavík. After meeting and greeting your local guide, you will board a classic four-wheel-driver and begin your specialised tour of the South Coast, where fun and adventure are the leading factors. 

The South Coast is one of Iceland’s most popular sightseeing routes for a reason. The scenery at hand consists of glaciers, black sand beaches, waterfalls and volcanoes. The cascading wonders Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the eerie sea stacks Reynisdrangar on Reynisfjara Beach and the looming ice cap Eyjafjallajökull are but some of the attractions that people flock to see. 

On this excursion, you will, of course, visit all of these famous sites, but the goal is to allow you to experience them in peace. Your guide will drive the 4x4 over rivers and mountain roads that other vehicles can’t cross, bringing you to hidden places that either give you a new view of the popular wonders or take you somewhere off-the-map for a unique and breathtaking scenery. 

Get ready to venture up close and personal to an ash-stricken glacier tongue, discover hidden waterfalls and trail old back-country roads not yet paved. During your exciting journey, your guide will inform you of all of the places you are visiting, answering all questions you might have on your lesser-known surroundings. 

Remember to bring your camera along, to capture this other side of the South Coast, that few people will get to see.  

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity in exploring both the popular attractions and the hidden gems of the South Coast, escaping the crowds and wading rivers in a roaring 4x4 wagon. Check availability by choosing a date.
