Join this tour for a leisurely trip down the beautiful south coast, travelling all the way to the might glacier, Sólheimajökull. This tour is for anyone who wants to explore the natural environment, take in the countryside and do something more low-key after days of hiking and ice climbing.

This day tour down the intrepid south coast of Iceland will take you to some of Iceland’s most well-known locations. You’ll be picked up at your designated pickup location in the capital, Reykjavík and glide down the coast, across fields of wildflowers and purple lupine, fluffy sheep and chubby horses playing in the grass.

Sólheimajökull glacier is next on the journey. You can see up close and personal the ice sculptures, ridges and crevasses which make the glacier so extraordinary. Finally, you’ll have a chance to enjoy lunch in nearby Vík, a small town with a beach, cafes and handicrafts shops, tempting visitors to buy a personalised souvenir.

On the way back to Reykjavík, you’ll visit the black beach called Reynisfjara, marked by black basalt columns along the cliffs which stand tall and domineering against the rolling ocean waves.

Lastly, you’ll admire the cliffs dotting the green hills, decorated with waterfalls such as the famous Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Seljalandsfoss has a walking path which takes you behind the falls to look out over the valley. Skógafoss has been featured in several films and is known for its rainbows and refreshing mists. It is said that one of the earliest settlers of Iceland buried a treasure chest behind the waterfall!

Grab this opportunity to join one of the most popular tours in Iceland and you too can experience the incredible breadth of beauty waiting for you along the south coast. Check the booking availability by choosing a date.

Good to know:

Weather in Iceland changes quickly, so don't be caught unawares. It is better to wear a sweater or dress in layers which you can remove if you become too warm. Jeans are not recommended because denim spreads moisture quickly and takes a long time to dry, leaving the wearer extremely cold if they get wet.

Awesome! Simon was so informative. We had a great experience. Be sure to wear waterproof clothes, it was very rainy and windy in February.

Our guide TRYM was really amazing, full of energy and have passion for guiding us. Although the weather didn’t allow us to go hiking, but he guided us to Vik and walk a little bit on the glacier. His passion and energy let everyone enjoy the trip a lot. Very like his enthusiasm.

I did that tour both in summer and winter, and in both cases the weather was cold, windy and rainy, but the views were simply amazing. All the stops were on time, everything was clarified by the tour guide. Small groups are a real advantage.

Even though the weather was 'challenging' to say the least (wet, windy and cold) to the point the guide said he'd be talking about it for a long time to come, we had a blast! Our guide Matt and driver Emil kept everyone feeling upbeat and did their best to maximize the day and the sights we'd see by keeping a close watch of the forecast and re-arranging our stops. When we were run out of the glacier area after only a few moments by strong wind gusts, risk of landslides and pelting hail, they concocted a surprise trip to a 'bonus' waterfall for us to make up for it! The only downside was the size of the tour. There were nearly 50 people on our tour, when we would have preferred a smaller group.

I was confused thinking i had booked both trips with your day tours. Was not keen to be on big bus so was advised i could switch to mjni bus . I agreed thinking we could get in a few extra stops but that did not happen so i wasted paying for the Mimi van. One passenger kept us waiting evert stop. Stops at black beach and waterfalls were amazing and probably all i needed.
