Come see some of the fairest landscapes in Iceland belonging to the sun-dappled South Coast. The attractions you will be seeing include the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Vík Village and Reynisfjara volcanic beach, among others, on this day tour perfect for any nature-loving sightseers visiting Iceland. 

Seljalandsfoss is one of Iceland's highest waterfalls, at 63 m (197 ft). The waterfall is a charming interlude in the rocky, rolling countryside, and includes a path right up to the waterfall, behind it, and out the other side. Feel the spray on your face as you venture in.

The next waterfall, Skógafoss, is one of the largest waterfalls in the country, with a width of 25 m (82 ft) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall produces, a single or even double rainbow is often on display when it's sunny.

The picturesque village of Vík then gives you a place to buy souvenirs, refuel with a cool drink or a snack and practice your Icelandic with the locals.

A short distance from the village is Reynisfjara beach, full of volcanic stones worn smooth by the water and black sand pounded by the surf. Have your picture taken in front of Garðar, the basalt columns which characterise the cliffs.

Listen to the waves crash against the shore and the spectacularly shaped basalt sea stacks called Reynisdrangar out in the ocean. You'll find the beach teeming with birdlife nesting on the cliffs and wheeling through the sky.

On the way back to the city, we will pass through lush farmlands with the sheep and horses that make Icelanders so proud. Your tour guide will share some of the fascinating histories of the region on your return, highlighting the wind-swept Icelandic countryside.

Don't miss out on this popular jaunt to Iceland's most thrilling natural attractions belonging to the South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.

Wonderful tour! So much information and history about the country. Our guide Halldor was very knowledgeable. The timing at each stop was just right..not rushed or too long. However we did not stop at Skógar or see the the museum. I would recommend this tour.

Really interesting tour, the first one I went on as soon as I got to Iceland. Gave me a fine introduction to what the South Coast feels like as well as a an overall view of Iceland's history.
