Description

South Coast from Reykjavik is a beautiful day through a scenic landscape of black sand beaches, glacier views, picturesque waterfalls and small cozy villages. Skógafoss Waterfall, Reynisfjara Beach and view towards the Sólheimajökull Glacier are among the highlights, but the day is full of endless nature wonders that we enjoy driving by or walk around in. We visit the village of Vík which by many is considered one of Iceland’s most beautiful location, right by the southern most point of the island and facing the Atlantic.

This is an genuine relaxing sightseeing day spent basking in Iceland’s picturesque nature. The day provides endless photo opportunities where active geothermal areas, black sand and terrific cliffs will capture your eye.

Tour description
The tour starts with a pickup at port in a small group mini bus. The guide will then start the tour and drive towards the south coast of Iceland. The guide will inform you of the geology, history and nature of the area on the way, and answer all your questions, to his best knowledge. The first stop is at Hveragerði Village were you will have a change to get some snacks for the road. After about 2 hour drive we stop at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, a picturesque waterfall with a path behind it. The path is usually open in summer, but often closed in winter due to icing. A short distance from Seljalandsfoss we will find Skógafoss Waterfall, a very popular destination in the south. Among other attractions visited in the day is Vík Village and Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. We will enjoy a lunch break in either of these locations. The Glaciers and mountains surrounding the black beaches in the Vik area provide stunning views and unforgettable photo opportunities. The tour ends with a relaxing drive back to Reykjavik.
