Amazing South Coast ​| Day Tour to the Waterfalls and Glaciers

Grab your coat and come along on this minibus tour of the south coast of Iceland. Fill your day with truly unique natural sights, amazing waterfalls, black beaches, glaciers and volcanos. This tour should not be missed by anyone wanting to make the most out of their holiday. 

Your journey starts in Reykjavík, where you will meet with your guide and your minibus driver. Travelling on a minibus is an excellent way to see the country as the number of participants is limited, so you will get an exclusive and personal experience as you traverse the south. 

From Reykjavík you will head out to the South Coast, crossing vast farmlands as you make your way towards the infamous Eyjafjallajökull glacial volcano. On the way, you will stop by two waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Vastly different from one another, their beauty makes them two of the best-loved waterfalls in the country.

A little further east lies the Sóheimajökull glacier tongue, stretching southbound from the Mýrdalsjökull glacier over the black sands below. Once there, you will have the opportunity to see the glacier up close on a hike around the barren black sands and up the age-old ice cap.

After your glacier hike, you’ll stop for lunch at the village of Vík. This picturesque town is a hub for travellers in South Iceland, filled with shops and restaurants. So even though it is small and calm; it is far from sleepy.

Near Vík lies Iceland's most famous black beach, Reynisfjara. Known for its amazing cliffs, ink black sands and massive rock stacks that keep guard out in the ocean. From Reynisfjara, you'll head back to the city, passing through the gorgeous windswept countryside, arriving in Reykjavík in time for dinner.

Don't miss this chance of visiting Iceland's most iconic attractions. See the stunning waterfalls, a mighty glacier and a raven black beach on this amazing minibus tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
