Breathtaking 10-Hour South Coast Tour with Reykjavik Transfer
Discover the natural wonders of Iceland's South Coast on this full-day tour from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to see the waterfalls, beaches, and glaciers this gorgeous region is famous for should book this tour now.
This magical day starts with a pick-up from your selected location in Reykjavik. Your driver will start heading east when everyone is on board, first over the Hellisheidi pass and then through the southern lowlands to Solheimajokull glacier.
Solheimajokull is one of the most accessible glaciers from Reykjavik, offering an extraordinary opportunity to get up close to an icy wilderness. It's an outlet glacier of the massive Myrdalsjokull ice cap, which covers the Katla volcano.
Solheimajokull is around five miles long and just over a mile wide (about eight kilometers long and two kilometers wide). It blends into Myrdalsjokull, making it appear much bigger. Take your time to appreciate the stunning vistas and capture photos before heading to your next destination, Reynisfjara beach.
Reynisfjara black sand beach is world-famous and a must-visit attraction in Iceland with several notable features. The Reynisdrangar sea stacks rise from the ocean while striking basalt columns tower along the shoreline.
Here you can stroll along the black volcanic sand and marvel at the fascinating scenery. Watching the powerful waves crash on the shore amid such a picturesque setting is an unforgettable experience.
During summer, the nearby cliffs are home to thousands of puffins. Observing these adorable birds at their nesting ground makes a visit to this awe-inspiring area even more memorable.
The tour's next stop is Vik, Iceland's southernmost village. Your guide will take you to the local church, and you can continue enjoying the stunning coastal vistas as you explore this quaint settlement.
After Vik, your group will start heading back toward Reykjavik, stopping first at two of the country's most-loved waterfalls.
You'll see Skogafoss waterfall dropping an impressive 200 feet (60 meters) and spanning an 82-foot (25-meter) width. This massive waterfall is jaw-droppingly beautiful and is extra scenic when it features a foreground rainbow on sunny days.
Although not quite as powerful, the nearby Seljalandsfoss waterfall is pristine and unique. It features a walking path that offers picture-perfect photo opportunities behind the falls. Make sure you wear your waterproof gear and good walking shoes on this trail!
After an epic day exploring the South Coast's treasures, your driver will take you back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.
