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 tour was amazing! Beautiful scenes of the waterfalls, black sand beaches, and the melting glacier (which is sad). Our tour guide Oskar is very knowledgable and shared a lot about the country. Highly recommend this tour!

The South Coast Day Tour with Your Day Tours was phenomenal! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable on all things Iceland/Icelandic Culture. He played some great Icelandic music along the trip and really helped us have a terrific experience. We would highly recommend Your Day Tours for your Iceland adventures!

This was an excellent tour. The sites we stopped at were beautiful. The waterfalls, black sand beach and a surprise stop at a cave we’re great. We were unable to go to Vik as the weather didn’t permit it. The winds were too dangerous and for our safety, the guide decided against it.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour and were glad we did it. Saw some icelandic horses as a bonus and the smaller bus was ideal though would be great to have USB inputs to charge phone between stops for all the photos I was taking

We had a great day. We didn't get to Vic because of the weather. However Bjorn added a visit to a small cave followed by a short walk.

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!
