    South Coast’s greatest hits

    • Marvel at the Skógafoss waterfall, famously featured in Game of Thrones, where fantasy meets the power of nature.
    • Feel the wind on your face and walk on the Reynisfjara black sand beach, renowned as one of the top 10 most beautiful places on Earth. It captured hearts worldwide. And for a reason!
    • Walk behind the iconic Seljalandsfoss waterfall and take in its grandeur from every angle. You might get wet but the smile on your face and the photos will be worth it.
    • Learn the enchanting secrets of Gljúfrabúi, a sheltered waterfall that is waiting to be discovered by you.
    • Adventure awaits underneath the vast Icelandic sky. After safety instructions, walk on centuries’ old ice, peek into a crevasse, drink glacier water on a Sólheimajökull glacier hike.

    Waterfalls, black sand beaches, and vistas on repeat

    Step aboard a comfortable minibus, feel the warm welcome from your driver-guide, and spend the next few hours journeying through Iceland’s South Coast with plenty of stops (and surprises!) in between. Depending on the weather, time of day, and season, your driver guide may change the order in which you will visit the stops. This is the beauty of travelling in a small group — you have the flexibility to avoid the crowds and make unexpected discoveries.

    “Well planned to avoid crowds.” 5-star review on Tripadvisor

    Reykjavik to Skógafoss Waterfall

    Meet Skógafoss, a fantastic 60-meter waterfall where the Skógá River concludes its journey over ancient sea cliffs. The coastline here took a step back, unveiling this breathtaking vertical cascade. The energy and might of the falls weave a constant mist, sometimes painting vibrant rainbows on sunny days. It’s like nature’s own magic show!

    Glacier hike on Sólheimajökull 

    Get ready for the tour’s highlight: a thrilling 2.5-hour hike, with 1.5 hours spent right on the Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier from the fourth-largest Icelandic glacier, Mýrdalsjökull.

    After gearing up for safety (crampons, helmet, ice axe), your highly trained guide will take you on the ice.  Ever wanted to peer inside a crevasse or taste glacier water while learning about the history and geology of Iceland’s glaciers? This is your chance. And yes, it’s safe!

    “What an experience, we loved it so much. It was like walking on a different planet, and such a stunning landscape…” 5-star review on Tripadvisor 

    Reynisfjara black sand beach

    After a quick ride, we’ll pull over at the enchanting Reynisfjara black sand beach. Imagine this: once your foot touches the black sand, you will know why it was voted among the world’s top 10 most beautiful non-tropical beaches. Being close to basalt columns, a domed cave, the famous black sand, and the iconic Reynisdrangar rock formations will give you plenty of thrills and serve as magnificent drops for your photos.

    You should stay clear of the ocean, the waves are extremely dangerous.

    Seljalandsfoss waterfall

    On the way back to Reykjavik we’ll stop at the must-see Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This beauty sits beneath the famous Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that made headlines in 2010. Get behind-the-waterfall view when you take a walk behind its thundering cascade.

    Gljúfrabúi (or Canyon Dweller) waterfall

    Close by you will find Gljúfrabúi, whose name is translated from the Icelandic as Canyon Dweller. It is one of the hidden gems of the South Coast, and thus an excellent spot for photographers and those seeking to admire nature in peace. Cameras at the ready…

    Return to Reykjavik full of life-long memories, and why not choose another tour with us, such as the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon Minibus Tour?
