If you are a nature lover, then this tour is made for you! It visits all the great attractions of the South Coast, Glaciers, the Black beach of Reynisfjara, Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and of course several of the beautiful waterfalls.
The highlight of the tour is a Blue Ice Glacier Hike on Solheimajokull glacier which takes around 1,5 hour.
We start with visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui, Kvernufoss and Irafoss. As we continue we will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where we take a Glacier Hike for about 1,5 hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier.
A bit further is the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings.
In one day we will see two volcanoes and discover five amazing waterfalls, visit Reynisfjara and get up close and personal with the sleeping ice giants that are our glaciers during the glacier hike. A perfect tour for the curious tourist and the inquisitive nature lover!

Skogafoss is one of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls of the island with an astounding width of 25 meters and a drop of 60 meters.
This is one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland for travellers to visit. It is located in South Iceland, not far from Skogar, which itself features a highly interesting regional museum. Due to the amount of spray the waterfall often produces a single or double rainbow on sunny days.
The world-famous Reynisfjara shore, near the village Vik in Myrdalur on Iceland's South Coast, is widely regarded as the most impressive black-sand beach in Iceland.
To reach Reynisfjara you can either drive there yourself. Here you will find the largest and cheapest car rentals in Iceland. Or you can join this summer tour to the South coast, or this winter tour to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
Reynisfjara is a black pebble beach and features an amazing cliff of regular basalt columns resembling a rocky step pyramid, which is called Hálsanef. Out in the sea are the spectacularly shaped basalt sea stacks Reynisdrangar. The area has a rich birdlife, including puffins, fulmars and guillemots.
The waves at Reynisfjara are especially strong and unpredictable, and fatal accidents have occurred at this beach, so people are advised to take extra care when visiting the area.
According to folklore, two trolls attempted to drag a ship to land but were turned to stone as daylight broke, turning them into the Reynisdrangar stacks, clearly visible from the beach.
Gljúfrabúi ("Canyon Dweller“) is a beautiful waterfall located at Hamragarðar in South Iceland, close to its better known counterpart, Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
The 40 metre high Gljúfrabúi can be considered somewhat of a hidden gem. It is indeed partially hidden behind a huge cliff that lends much atmosphere to the scenery.
To enjoy a view of the fall you need to wade the Gljúfurá river into a narrow opening in the cliff or follow a steep path up the cliff. Both endeavours are demanding so utmost caution is advised.
As mentioned, this waterfall is less known than its neighbour but as a result may provide for all the greater serenity, in addition to excellent scenery.

Absolutely amazing tour. Lucia and Navid (sp?) were spectacular guides. Both were so knowledgeable and so much fun. Felt like they were long lost friends. Will certainly seek them out for other tours when we return to Iceland. Highly recommend this tour company. We were the only 2 people who booked the tour on that particular day and instead of cancelling the trip, Lucia and Navid showed up in a SUV and gave us a VIP experience.
My husband and I along with our two adult daughters and their significant others took this tour April 2017 and I can't say enough about how wonderful it was. Aside from our group of 6, there was only another couple for a total tour group of 8 which lends itself to a very personal experience. From the moment the tour bus picked us up, I knew it was going to great! Our tour guide Antonio was so friendly, extremely knowledgeable about all the sites we visited and the history of Iceland. Our driver Thor was great and we all felt very safe. Both my husband and I are a "little older" and Antonio encouraged me every step. It was by far my best day in Iceland. My only regret was that I was leaving the next day and couldn't do another tour. I highly recommend Nice travel to anyone traveling to Iceland and wants a tour on a more personal level.
My friend and I took this tour in March 2017, and it was a really fun tour. Aside from us, there were only 3 other people in the tour. The tour guide was very knowledgable about Iceland, nature, and the waterfalls, glacier, and beach we went to. Highly recommend!
We took this tour January 2016 with Antonio and were not disappointed. He was attentive, informative, upbeat, and flexible- all the right traits for a wonderful tour guide. He made adjustments to our tour to satisfy everyone's tastes and abilities, and made it, by far, the best day of our 5-day vacation. In fact, we are returning to Iceland in March 2017, and have requested a different tour with Antonio. This tour, and the tour guide, are not to be missed when making your travel itinerary to Iceland. xox
I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Antonio was amazing and very knowledgeable. We saw so many amazing sights. The waterfalls he took us to were incredible. This was one of the best tours we have ever been on! It was basically a private tour too as it was just my BF and me. If you want a fun tour with a small group then this is the one for you! Antonio took some amazing pictures of us at the waterfalls and went above and beyond to create a wonderful day for us! Thanks for the experience!!!
En esta excursión puedes ver una pequeña parte de Islandia. Me encantaron los paisajes naturales, las piedras magnéticas. Una excursión imprescindible para conocer esta isla. Nos tocó Antonio como guía y genial también
Es una excursión increible con unos paisajes preciosos. Nuestro guia, David, muy bueno y simpático. Totalmente recomendable!
What a great tour! Antonio was our tour guide. He was informative as well as entertaining. The south side of the island is an amazing mix of scenery. Highly recommend this tour. Love that the groups are small. Great job guys!!
Went on a tour with Antonio and David. The group was super small and it was so fun! Antonio was very knowledgeable, friendly, and took some time getting to know each of us. The waterfalls were gorgeous. Would definitely book with them again!
This is an amazing tour and highly recommend it. Our tour guide was incredible with the history of Iceland, the volcano's, the farming, Iceland's Resources and random facts. He was open to questions and there was 5 people on the tour, which made it very personable, even the driver was participating and having fun (they use the small buses). The scenery while driving to the waterfalls and the Black Beach is nothing you'll ever see! Each waterfall and scenery is different, none are the same.
Best and most fantastic tour ever! Small group - there were only two travelers, a Canadian and me! The driver is so nice that he even stopped to take us to pick up the blueberries off the road, which is very tasty. We have seen more than seven waterfalls, some of which are private and are like secrets behind the mountains. The minibus is new and the driver is knowledgeable. Strongly recommended! It was just like a private tour!
Loved everything about this tour. Small with only four of us, so that was a bonus. The guide was really great, knowledgable, and fun with enlightening facts about Iceland and the history. Highly recommended!
Best waterfalls and rainbows ever seen!
This was a great tour! We had a small group (only 4 of us) so it was much more personal than the larger tours. We got to see many of the waterfalls that most tours take you on, as well as some that the guides found on their own, so they're less touristy. The guide had a lot of information and was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this tour!
That was a really nice tour! The views were amazing. The bus was cozy. Thanks to our enthusiastic guide, we enjoyed the sightseeing and the food in Iceland very much :)
The tour was great. We saw a lot of beautiful waterfalls. We also saw rainbows by the waterfall. I really liked the secret waterfall that we were brought to. The group was small, so it felt more personal. On the whole, I'd recommend the tour.
What to ask more? Me and my friend selected the Wild South Coast trip to visit Southern Iceland and to see some waterfalls. We could feel we booked a private trip. We were only 5 in the minibus which made the travel very comfortable with many stops. The programme was amazing. We visited sights with full of tourists, but also places where we were alone and took as much photo as we wanted without that anyone show up in our photos. The weather was beautiful. The guide was amazing and patient with us even if we were always those who come back late to the minibus and normally it was his day off. The driver was great also. I highly recommend to select this trip. It worth the price. (There was also a strong wi-fi in the minibus. )
I had a great time on this amazing tour. The guide was really friendly and helpful. I loved going to the secret water fall where no other tourist were brought to. I had an incredible experience on this tour and I greatly recommend it. The next time I visit Iceland I will book all my tour with through this company.
We had such a great and impressive experience for our waterfalls tour with Guide to Iceland. Our tour guide was Antonio and he was very nice and took us to a secret waterfall which very beautiful and there was no other tourist there except for us. We really enjoyed our tour and would recommend other to do so.
A great experience! Both the guide and driver were very friendly and very knowledgeable- we in essence had two guides, giving both an insight into the tour and life in Iceland. Both were always willing to make sure we were happy and attended to all our needs. It was very a personal tour, and everyone on the tour was very approachable to address our wishes and questions. The tour was fantastic and it became apparent as we continued that the visited areas not visited by other parties/companies; some of the tour's features were not even mentioned in our guidebook- we very much left feeling we had a unique experience. I have already recommended this tour to friends and family due to visit Iceland very soon.
Amazing tour! Our guide Antonio was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the tour, and really made us feel welcome as he shared his love for Iceland with us. Our driver Robert was also really skillful and the ride was always comfortably smooth; he was really friendly too! This tour was truly the best way of exploring the south coast and we had absolutely no regrets about not driving through it ourselves on hindsight. Even as I'm typing this I'm considering planning my next tour to Iceland in summer, and I will certainly look for the same guides to bring me around again! Thanks Antonio and Robert for the wonderful experience!
The locations we visited were wonderful but very little information was provided at the various locations and almost no information was shared as we were driving. Everyone was very nice but I had different expectations for a tour at this price level. Other tours of the same price level I took were far and away more engaging and informative. Most of group was there as a part of a volunteer tour and perhaps there was some miscommunication regarding the type of tour I had purchased and the tour we went out on. Wonderful people, disappointing tour.
