See the waterfalls and glaciers of the South Coast on this fantastic minibus adventure from Reykjavík. If you want to experience the most incredible sites of South Iceland in just one day, this locally guided tour is the excursion for you. 

After getting picked up in the city of Reykjavík, you will board your comfortable minibus and get settled with the rest of your small group of travel companions, but a minibus excursion guarantees a more intimate experience than offered by most bigger tour buses. 

After a scenic drive through stunning coastal sceneries, your first stop will be at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a narrow wonder with a drop of 60 metres (200 feet). What’s special about this already stunning waterfall is that you can walk all the way around it into a cave behind the curtain of water, providing unique views and amazing photo opportunities. 

These falls are fed by run-off glacial water from the nearby Eyjafjallajökull volcano-ice-cap, which you will also feast your eyes on, but this roaring beast last erupted in 2010, making world-headlines as it hindered air traffic all across Europe. 

Your next stop will be at Skógafoss, another waterfall with a height equal to that of Seljalandsfoss, but a much greater width of 25 metres (82 feet). The waterfall tumbles down the cliffs of the former coastline that now separates the lowlands from the Highlands of Iceland. The shallows of the basin mean that you can walk right up to the cascade, feeling the mist on your face. 

Then, it is time to visit the majestic Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier of the larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. Your knowledgeable guide will happily inform you of the glacier’s history as they drive you right up to its roots so you can see it up close and personal. 

Your last destination will be at the coastal village Vík, where you’ll visit the black sand beach Reynisfjara. The currents here are mighty strong, so beware of the powerful waves as you watch them crash upon the eerie rock formations of Reynisdrangar. 

After enjoying the complimentary local treat of Harðfiskur (dried fish), you’ll board the bus once more and head back to Reykjavík City. 

Don’t miss out on this essential Icelandic experience and see all the famous sites of the South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.
