This 10-hour adventure starts with a pick up from authorised pickup points located in central Reykjavík before heading towards the south shore of the island. You'll head over Hellisheiði pass and through the southern lowlands to Sólheimajökull Glacier, an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth largest glacier.

From there you will move towards Iceland‘s most famous black sand beach, Reynisfjara, where the roaring Atlantic Ocean fiercely hits the shore. Just off the beach, the Reynisdrangar basalt stacks majestically rise from the sea. You'll enjoy the stunning views of this popular beach before heading towards Vík í Mýrdal. The village of Vík í Mýrdal is the most southern town in Iceland, and you'll make a stop at the local church.

After you have explored the beautiful town, you'll turn around and start making your way back to the capital city. On the way back to Reykjavík, you will stop at magical Skógafoss waterfall, the roughly 60-metre high cascade, and the picturesque Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of the few waterfalls that you can actually see from both sides by walking behind it,

Your certified guide will make sure that you will have enough time to enjoy all of the sites included in this tour and make great memories to take back home. The South Coast of Iceland is simply a magical place, as it includes some of the most popular attractions in Iceland. This tour is a must when visiting the country.
