Join this minibus excursion of the most iconic natural attractions of south Iceland. See glaciers, waterfalls and a black sand beach in this best value tour that is tailored to those who want to experience all the best south Iceland has to offer.

You'll see magnificent waterfalls, white glacier ice caps, volcanoes, puffin colonies and charming Icelandic farms on rolling hillsides, all on this 10-hour day tour.

If you are staying in a guest house or a hotel in Reykjavík, you'll be picked up in the morning and then you're off to see the amazing south coast; and to allow you to enjoy the sites in cosy comfort, this tour is for small groups only – there will never be more than 19 people per group.

You’ll stop at two of south Iceland's most impressive waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the former being one of Iceland's most powerful waterfalls, sought out by locals and travellers alike.  

Seljalandsfoss is a picturesque cascade, famed for its walking path which allows you to hike behind it in summer time. There, you'll experience an unmatched perspective, as you look out through the hissing water to the surrounding landscapes of green fields and towering lava cliffs.

After accosting the south's two water giants, you’ll make your way to Reynisfjara, a black sand beach near the small town of Vík. This beach is famed for its vibrant birdlife and eery natural surroundings. There, you are likely to see puffins swarming in search of food, around the pyramid-shaped basalt columns that make up Reynisfjara's cliffs. 

Look out to sea near the shore for a view of the spectacularly shaped sea stacks called Reynisdrangar.

During the drive to these attractions, you'll see both the mighty Sólheimajökull glacier and the notorious Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano whose 2010 eruption brought European air traffic to a standstill for days due to the enormous amounts of ash it spewed into the air.

For your convenience, this tour is operated in brand-new Mercedes Benz Sprinter with free Wi-Fi on board. Your experienced guide will tell you stories about the locations and answer all your questions. You'll taste traditional Icelandic snacks, and there will be a stop for lunch so that you won't get hungry. 

Don't miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to see Iceland's magical south coast. Check availability by choosing a date.
