Description

Explore the South Coast of Iceland with this private sightseeing tour in a 4x4 vehicle. Travelers who want to see the most beautiful attractions of South Iceland while enjoying a personal experience with a private guide should book this tour.

The adventure begins at your accommodation in Reykjavik, where the guide will pick you up. Your vehicle for the day is a 4x4 that can traverse the rugged roads of the South Coast, even under challenging conditions. 

The expert local guide leading the day’s adventure is also an Icelandic Search and Rescue Team member, so you know you’re safe. 

The tour has a maximum of three guests, so you and your friends or family can enjoy a personal experience. You’ll be able to ask as many questions as you like and get to know the guide during the tour.

Since this is a private tour, you can decide how long you want to spend in each location. You can ask your guide for recommendations on where else to visit and choose the sights that most interest you.

You’ll drive out of the city to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It’s one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland because there’s a cave behind it that you can visit. Here you can enjoy an incredible view of the waterfall from a different perspective.

Next, you’ll make your way to another waterfall, Skogafoss. Skogafoss is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland and has a width of more than 80 feet (25 meters). You’ll get time to enjoy the view and take fantastic photos of this powerful waterfall. Wear waterproof clothing as you may get wet if you stand close to it.

While you’re here, you can walk up a path with 370 steps. It’s hard work, but the views at the top are worth it. On a clear day, you can enjoy an unforgettable view of Iceland’s coastline and the Atlantic Ocean.

When you’ve made your way down, you’ll get back in the car and drive further east to Reynisfjara beach. This beach is one of the most famous in Iceland, with jet-black sand formed from volcanic rock. 

Many films and TV shows have used this beach as a set, including Game of Thrones, Rogue One, and Star Trek. You might recognize the view around you.

The beach is also an excellent place to view the impressive Reynisdrangar sea stacks. Your guide can tell you about their formation as you walk along the black sands and enjoy the vistas.

You can also visit the fishing village of Vik during your tour, as it’s just a short drive from Reynisfjara beach. Vik is the southernmost settlement on mainland Iceland and is very picturesque. You can buy lunch here if you’re hungry before you drive back to Reykjavik.
