Description

Explore Iceland's South Coast, discovering waterfalls, black sand beaches, and an ice cave, by booking this incredible 12-hour guided excursion. Those eager to go ice caving and see some of the spectacular landscapes that Iceland is famous for should book this private tour now.

Your tour starts when you are picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik by your expert guide. This excursion is a private tour, so it will be just you and your group.

There's no need to wait for other guests. Your guide can tailor the tour to your needs, and you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask your experienced local guide questions. When ready, you'll set off for Iceland's South Coast.

The first stop on the tour is Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Seljalandsfoss waterfall is an iconic waterfall renowned for its breathtaking beauty and unique features.

With a drop of approximately 197 feet (60 meters), it plunges from an ancient sea cliff, creating a cascading water curtain.

What sets Seljalandsfoss waterfall apart is the natural pathway that allows visitors to walk behind it, providing an immersive experience. This vantage point offers spectacular views of the surrounding lush green landscape.

Next up is another waterfall, Skogafoss waterfall. It is the same height as Seljalandsfoss waterfall and is 82 feet (25 meters) wide. The waterfall's waters create a constant mist that often results in rainbows.

What makes Skogafoss waterfall even more remarkable is a well-maintained staircase that leads to an elevated viewing platform, providing a panoramic view of the waterfall and the surrounding landscape.

You'll also visit the beautiful Reynisfjara black sand beach. Composed of volcanic black basalt sand, it contrasts strikingly with the roaring North Atlantic Ocean, creating a mesmerizing landscape.

Towering basalt columns, known as the Reynisdrangar sea stacks, rise dramatically from the water, and behind the beach is the Reynisfjall mountain, shrouded in folklore.

The last stop of the day is Katla Ice Cave. Before descending into the cave, you'll be given a thorough safety briefing and all the safety equipment you need.

The cave is within the Katla volcano and is created by meltwater from Myrdalsjokull glacier, the third largest glacier in Iceland.

The ice cave features an intricate labyrinth of tunnels and chambers adorned with stunning ice formations, including crystal-clear ice sculptures and blue ice walls. Ice caves are constantly changing, so each visit is a unique experience.

Enjoy sightseeing on Iceland's South Coast and an ice-caving adventure on this private tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
