Join this exciting and intimate Minibus tour exploring the majestic waterfalls and black sand beaches of South Iceland. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for those travellers looking to experience the natural attractions of the South without compromising their experience in an overly large tour group.

You will begin this tour by being picked up from your designated meeting point in Reykjavík and then driven down along the South Coast. The first stop you will make is the natural gem, Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland's most popular and photographed features. 

At Seljalandsfoss, visitors can actually walk directly behind the cascading water, following a narrow and slippery path to gain a whole new perspective of the waterfall. Aside from the 60m of falling water, the surrounding area is characterised by stunning farmlands and towering cliff faces.

Your next stop is at Skógafoss, a larger and more powerful waterfall where visitors can walk right up to the point the water hits the ground. This provides staggering photographic opportunities, and rainbows will often form in the ever-present mist. According to folklore, an ancient treasure chest was once hidden behind the waterfall by a troll. Today, visitors can look upon the waterfall either from the feature's base or from atop the staircase that climbs up beside it. 

You will next head to Dyrhólaey, a sublime and gorgeous location which boasts panoramic views of the surrounding area. Aside from the farmlands and rugged coastlines, you will be able to look upon distant mountainscapes and creeping glaciers, as well as the rugged, jet-black coastline below. In the summertime, it is even possible to see Puffins nesting within the cliff face. 

You will make your final stop of the day at Reynisfjara, Iceland's most famous black sand beach. Here, you will look upon distinctive volcanic pebbles, basalt columns, rolling Atlantic waves and huge rock stacks, protruding from the ocean. Make sure not to get too close, however, ads Reynisfjara is infamous for its unpredictable waves and currents. After your time at the beach is over, you will make the scenic return journey back to Iceland's capital. 

So what are you waiting for? Hurry now and you too can experience the incredible waterfalls, black sand beaches and panoramic vistas of the South Coast with this personal Minibus tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

    People always tought that traveling alone in iceland is much better than go on trip by bus with lot of people, but thats not true! When i went on trip for first time with D-Travel it was one amazing day so i decided that i should go with them on my second trip. So i saw magical black sand beaches, lovely puffins but thats not all. Dusan and Lucie told us so much informations abou Iceland, about nature and legends, that trip was even more interesting for me. Because when you travel alone, nobody will tell you stories and informations abou places where you have been :) but if you choose D-Travel you will fall in love with this island like me :) really good trip :) looking forward to next trip with D-Travel :)

    I can highly recommend exploring Iceland with Dusan and Lucie, their tours are well-organized and in addition to the most popular locations, they will also take you to places off the beaten track and will show you some hidden treasures of this amazing island. They are both friendly and helpful and always do their best to accommodate the wishes of their clients. So if you are looking for a reliable and professional tour operator, look no further than D-travel.

    Puedo decir que mi experiencia con Dusan y Lucie en Islandia fue genial, son extremadamente amables y con gusto te llevan a diversos lugares, te explican todo. Los tours están perfectamente planeados, incluso se adapta la agenda de acuerdo al clima, para poder disfrutar aún más las maravillosas vistas en Islandia. I can say that in my experience with Dusan and Lucie on Iceland was great, they are extremely kind and they enjoy taking you everywhere, explaining everything. The tours are perfectly planned, even it's possible to adapt the agenda according to weather forecasts, so you manage to get the best possible experience the wonders from Iceland.

    One of the nicest waterfall i have seen in Iceland is Seljalandsfoss, which you are able to walk from behind. Only one recommendation for black beach - be careful to waves, i got myself wet :D About minibus - very comfortable, water, coffee,... provided, fast wifi... I can definitely recommend :)

    I think it is a highlights from the vicinity of Reykjavík, what you can see in one single day. With bonuses in the form of a friendly and reliable driver Dušan and his guide Lucia who knows perfectly Iceland and its culture. WiFi in the Minibus, is already only a small detail that allows you to instantly share new experiences from this breathtaking landscape with your friends. I traveled with this Tour Operator already two times and certainly not the last. Definitely I recommend.
