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.

This was by far our best guided trip that we took in Iceland. The scenery and stops were breathtaking. Also, our guide Bjorn was great...he was super knowledgeable, and had plenty of great stories to tell. He also stopped off at 2 unexpected stops not listed on the tour...One of which we went into a cave and had some traditional Icelandic smoked lamb on flatbread, along with a malted drink. Bjorn sang happy birthday for another one of the travelers and we topped it off with the food and toast of the malted drink. I’d highly recommend this company, and if possible, request Bjorn as your guide. This was our 1st trip to Iceland, and we are already planning to go back soon!

My son and I did this trip on the last full day of our week in Iceland. Our guide, Oskar, from Your Day Tours picked us up promptly and, from the very start, was chatty and informative. This is a long day - but oh so worth it..........we had fantastic weather all week ............ the waterfalls are beautiful; black beach is stunning and the scenery is breathtaking. I loved Oskar's snacks - especially the flatbread and lamb. This great tour was booked through Guide to Iceland, the perfect 'One Stop' for any tours Highly recommend!!

We used Your Day Tours,, absolutely brilliant! You don’t feel like ‘cattle’ as you would on the big coach tours as this is a smaller group and more personable. Informative , relaxed and entertaining. Our guide didn’t just follow the list of places either... weather changed and views gone so we were taken to other beautiful views that could be seen( once checking with us all) The scenery and waterfalls on this tour are stunning!!!

The tous was amazing. The driver was excellent and extremely nice, sharing a lot of information regarding Iceland and the landscapes of southcoast. We had more time at the end and he even took us to another spot that it wasn't orginically in the tour. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking to explore the southcoast of Iceland.

We had the most wonderful time on this tour! Bjorn was so friendly and personable, and seemed to have inexhaustible knowledge of Iceland and its history. He went above and beyond to make our tour memorable, informative, and dare I say, a little magical! The tour itself was breathtaking. The glacier, waterfalls and black sand beach were magnificent, and shouldn't be missed! I can't recommend this tour enough!

Oskar was a phenomenal tour guide. Very sweet, told some good jokes in between pointing out and explaining all the things we saw while on the road and in person. He was very informative. The tour itself was breathtaking. The glacier, waterfalls and black sand beach made this tour day my favorite day of our whole trip. Some other small things we noticed: Oskar played some traditional and modern Icelandic music on the bus, one of the bands, we ended seeing live in concert in Reykjavik the next day! He also has a nice surprise at the end of your tour!

The tour is definitely one of the best one in my whole life:D I was literary speechless every amazing place where we visited. The whole nature is absolutely stunning. One of the highlight of the tour was Skógafoss waterfall, where the film “The secret life of Walter Mitty” was shot. That is one of my favourite movies and seeing that location was kind of my-dream-come-true!! Our tourguide, Addy-san (hope it is correct) is amazing and an expert in Icelandic geology. It was fascinating to hear her lovely talk about Icelandic geology as well as its culture. I would definitely come back and join another tour sometime in winter:D Massive thank you for your amazing tour.
