Discover the majestic beauty of Iceland's South Coast on this fantastic full-day tour departing from Reykjavik. Travelers who want to see waterfalls, black-sand beaches, and dramatic glaciers will love this guided bus tour.

Begin your adventure in Reykjavik. Meet at the designated meeting point and greet your expert local guide.

This tour operates in English, but an audioguide is available in 10 languages, including Spanish. You can bring your headphones or purchase some onboard the bus.

Board the comfortable bus and prepare for an exciting day. The bus has Wi-Fi and USB charging stations, keeping you connected throughout the tour. Tablets are available for passenger use, providing insightful information about the sights as you travel.

The first part of the journey takes you through the Hellisheidi mountain pass. Marvel at the mossy lava fields and geothermal springs as you travel to the Atlantic coastline. This scenic drive showcases the rugged beauty of Iceland's landscape.

You'll pass the Hekla and Eyjafjallajokull volcanoes as you continue along the coast. You can see the Westman Islands in the distance to your right on clear days. These stunning views offer perfect photo opportunities.

Your first stop is the Solheimajokull glacier, an outlet of the larger Myrdalsjokull ice cap. It stretches over a vast area, with striking blue ice and ash layers from past volcanic eruptions.

Next, you'll visit the Reynisfjara black sand beach, famous for its black basalt sands and dramatic ocean waves. Gaze at the Reynisdrangar sea stacks rising majestically from the water. According to legend, these stacks were once trolls who turned to stone.

You'll continue to Vik, the southernmost village in mainland Iceland. Vik is known for its picturesque scenery, colorful houses, and charming church perched on a hill. Cliffs surround the village and offer stunning sea views.

On returning to Reykjavik, you'll stop at the mighty Skogafoss waterfall. This powerful waterfall drops around 200 feet (60 meters) from a cliff, creating a mist that often forms rainbows on sunny days.

The waterfall is one of Iceland's largest and best known. Enjoy the views as you photograph this incredible sight.

Your next stop is the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Seljalandsfoss waterfall is unique as you can walk behind its cascade. In the summer, the trail behind the cascade is open, offering a rare perspective of the water plunging from above.

The Seljalandsfoss waterfall is about the same height as the Skogafoss waterfall but has a different appearance.

At the end of the tour, you'll return to Reykjavik on the bus, reflecting on the day's adventures as you drive back through the stunning Icelandic landscapes.
