Full Day South Coast Tour | Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss and Reynisfjara Beach

Based on 2 traveller reviews

Come along with us on a tour of some of the fairest countryside in Iceland: our sun-dappled south coast. Some of our most awe-inspiring sites are found there, including the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Dyrhólaey promontory and Reynisfjara volcanic beach, among others.

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. How refreshing to feel the spray on your face!

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 next stop after the waterfalls is Dyrhólaey, which reaches 120 m (393 ft) at its highest point. This penninsula is not far from the picturesque village of Vik, which 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 characterize 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 history of the region on your return, highlighting the wind-swept Icelandic countryside.

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.
