See the sights of one of Iceland’s most celebrated sightseeing routes, without boarding buses or waiting for big groups, on this private excursion to the South Coast. If you want to enjoy the waterfalls, volcanic landscapes and black-sand beaches this stunning coastline has to offer in a small group on a personalised journey, this tour is your perfect bet.
After getting picked up in Reykjavík and meeting with your experienced local guide, you will begin your scenic drive south to arrive at the waterfall Skógafoss, as it rumbles down the former sea cliffs that separate the lowlands from the highlands of Iceland. Take a short hike up the cliff to admire the views, before boarding your vehicle again and heading to the coastal village Vík.
In Vík, you’ll stop for refreshments before visiting the mystical black beach Reynisfjara, to awe at the eerie rock formations of the Reynisdrangar sea stacks, swept with folklore of trolls and their three-masted ship turned to stone. Looking out to sea, you also obtain a clear view of Dyrhólaey, a beautiful coastal arch with a cave.
As your journey continues, you’ll be driving past the most infamous volcano in Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull the volcanic ice cap. The last time this monster erupted, in 2010, it put a stop to airline travels all over Europe for several days, making world-headlines in the news media.
As you begin making your way back to the capital, you will visit the waterfall Seljalandsfoss. Although not as wide as Skógafoss, it is its equal in height, and boasts the added feature of an accessible cave right behind it. If you want to gain a unique coastal view from behind these stunning falls, bring a raincoat and walk through the mist into a fairytale-like scenery.
