Description

Discover stunning waterfalls on Iceland's South Coast before enjoying an adrenalin-pumping buggy ride at the edge of the Myrdalsjokull glacier. Travelers keen to marvel at spectacular natural wonders and participate in a thrilling adventure should book this combination tour from Reykjavik now.

Your day begins with a bus departure from Reykjavik. You'll greet your friendly driver and the rest of the tour participants before departing the city for the beautiful South Coast.

The South Coast is one of Iceland's most-loved regions. It's known for its unmatched natural treasures, including waterfalls, beaches, and glaciers. Today, you'll discover all three!

Your first sightseeing stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall, an enchanting cascade with a path encircling it. When it's not too slippery, you can walk around the waterfall to enjoy its splendor from every angle. Make sure you wear your waterproof gear for this one!

Seljalandsfoss looks straight out of a fairytale, so take your time to bask in your surroundings. Whether you see it in its icy winter coat or surrounded by summer's lush greenery, it's a captivating sight.

You'll also visit Skogafoss, another of the South Coast's famous cascades. At around 197 feet (60 meters) high, it falls from a similar height to Seljalandsfoss. However, that's where the similarities end.

While Seljalandsfoss boasts a delicate beauty, Skogafoss is incredibly picturesque and powerful. 

Standing below this mighty cascade, you can't help feeling dwarfed by its magnificence. Skogafoss is a staggering 82 feet (25 meters) wide and creates a massive water spray, often adorned with a rainbow on sunny days.

The terrain at Skogafoss's base is relatively flat, so you can walk rather close to it and capture some fantastic photos of yourself in front of the water. When it's not snowy or icy, a staircase beside the falls leads to awe-inspiring views from above.

After your magical sightseeing excursion to the waterfalls, your driver will stop in Hvollsvollur town, where you can purchase food or eat your packed lunch. Reflect on the extraordinary sights you've witnessed and anticipate the afternoon's exhilarating activity.

Next, it's time for your buggy ride. Your driver will take you to the excursion's starting point, where you'll receive a safety briefing and all the necessary equipment.

Two people ride in each buggy, and children as young as six can ride as a passengers. You will need a valid license to drive the buggy. Those who prefer a solo ride can pay for a single supplement on-site when available.

An expert guide will lead you on a two-hour tour to the Myrdalsjokull glacier's edge. You'll easily traverse Iceland's rugged terrain, feeling the excitement build as you appreciate nature in its glory.

Splash through rivers while enjoying unbeatable views of the sparkling white ice cap contrasting against black desert sands. It's the perfect way to fully immerse yourself in Iceland's beauty.

After an unforgettable ride, you'll take a scenic trip back to Reykjavik, where the tour ends.
