The Icelandic South Coast | Fire & Ice Day Tour

The South Coast – Fire & Ice tour is an action packed day that allows you to experience the best parts of the stunning south coast of Iceland. The south coast has some of Iceland’s quintessential sights, including vivid blue glaciers, numerous powerful waterfalls, volcanic black sand beaches and infamously destructive volcanoes. The South Coast of Iceland really has it all, and you can experience it all in one unforgettable day.

This trip starts with pickups in Reykjavik from 8:00am. We will then head out of town, driving through the beautiful Icelandic landscape to the town of Hvolsvöllur. Here, we make a quick coffee break and a chance to buy some snacks to keep us going for the day. From there, it is not long until we arrive at one of the highlights of the trip, the stunning Solheimajökull glacier, flowing down from the enormous Myrdalsjökull icecap, where we will be able to hike and explore the unique ice features. After our hike we head to Reynsifjara to see the amazing rock formations at this spectacular black sand beach as well as eat lunch at the Black Beach Restaurant.

We will then head back to Reykjavik, but not before stopping at some of the most breathtaking natural sights in Iceland. The Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss and Kvernufoss waterfalls will impress in their own way and on clear days you will be in awe of the infamous Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes, as well as the towering Westman Islands, rising straight out of the North Atlantic Ocean. Our last stop before reaching Reykjavik will be the newly opened interactive LAVA centre, where we can learn all about the volcanoes we have seen throughout the day, before reaching the city in time for late dinner.
