South Coast of Iceland - Private Day Tour from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Waterfalls and glaciers of the South Coast are one of the main attractions of Iceland. This journey will take place along the lowlands of the southern coast, where landscapes make all possible forms: from farmlands to pristine glaciers, dramatic rocks at the ocean coast and rampant waterfalls. We are confident that having gone on a trip along the southern coast, you will get inspired by the harsh beauty of Iceland and will fall in love with its ancient and beautiful history. After all, behind each of these delightful places are no less appealing sagas and legends.
Visited places:
• Seljalandsfoss and Gljudrabui waterfalls
• Skogafoss waterfall
• Dyrholaey South Cape of Iceland
• Reynisfjara black sand beach
• Solheimajokull glacier (no glacier hike)
  • Explore Iceland’s south coast by Jeep or minibus with your private guide
  • Visit remote attractions: Dyrhólaey coastline and Skogafoss waterfall
  • Sweeping views over Iceland’s soaring cliffs and black-sand beaches 
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from your Reykjavik hotel
What to Expect
Your tour starts with morning pickup at your Reykjavik hotel in your Jeep or minibus and a drive along the Hellisheidi mountain pass. Enjoy sweeping views over the geysers, lava fields, and volcanos, and listen as your private driver and guide sheds light on the region’s geothermal activities.
First, traverse the lowlands to the Skogafoss and Séljalandsfoss waterfalls, and stand behind Séljalandsfoss’ cascading waters. You have time to explore on foot.
Next, head past Solheimajokull glacier to the high, rocky promontory of Dyrhólaey. Here, watch the Atlantic waves washing over the black sands below and gaze across the Mýrdalur valley range.
Continue on to the shoreline at Reynisfjara—one of the finest black-sand beaches in Iceland—and stop for a coastal walk with your private guide.
When your time at Reynisfjara comes to an end, you are dropped at your Reykjavik hotel to conclude your tour.

Expensive, but an amazing place to visit. It is well worth the cost. Pristine and the best water ever. Four days is ideal
