See the most famous sights Iceland has to offer on this day tour from Reykjavík! This tour is 14-16 hours long, and you will have two driver-guides accompanying you to make your trip the best it possibly can be. You will be able to see all the main attractions on the South Coast and return to Reykjavík with an array of unique memories from your day out on the road.

This tour is very different between the summer and winter, mainly because of daylight conditions, but of course the landscape also completely changes when covered in snow. 

You will visit Reynisfjara black sand beach, one of the most popular beaches in Iceland, due to its unique wideness and a basalt-column cave only accessible at times. Just off the shore, you can spot Reynisdrangar rock formations. Legend has it that these rock stacks were two trolls who got surprised by the sunrise. Dýrholaey stone arch is also an impressive sight, towering 120m over the black sand beach.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is our main highlight of the day and one of the most popular and beautiful sights in Iceland. The glacier lagoon is the deepest lake in Iceland with icebergs floating through the cold water. The icebergs break off from Breiðarmerkurjökull glacier, directly into the glacier lagoon where they stay until they have melted enough to be washed out to the ocean. Sometimes these smaller icebergs wash ashore again on a black sand beach called Diamond Beach. The two attractions have been featured in Hollywood movies such as Tomb Raider, Batman Begins and James Bond.

You will also visit two of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss waterfall is fed from a river that originates in the renowned volcano Eyjafjallajökull and plunges 60m over the edge of a cliff. Seljalandsfoss has the unique possibility of a path where you can walk behind the waterfall - that might, however, be closed during wintertime. Skógafoss waterfall is another famous waterfall with a 60m drop; however, it is much broader than Seljalandsfoss. At Skógafoss you can climb stairs to the top of it to get a magnificent view of the surrounding landscape and the waterfall itself.
