Experience

Highlights
  • Explore the beautiful south coast of Iceland
  • Enjoy an unforgettable glacier hike on Solheimajokull Glacier
  • Go on an amphibious boat tour at glacier lagoon
  • Walk on the magic Black Beach of Reynisfjara
  • Visit three magical waterfalls, the Seljalandsfoss, Gljufrabui, and Skogafoss
Full description

Begin by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting the lesser known, more secret waterfall of Glufrabui. You will stop so that you can buy lunch. Drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where you will take a glacier hike for about 1.5 hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier. A bit further is the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings.  After overnighting in an Icelandic countryside accommodation, take a closer look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. Visit the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and take an amphibious boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. See the huge chunks of ice crack off the Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash onto the shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin.

Spot seals swimming around the huge icebergs before visiting the turf-roofed church Hofskirkja and Fjadrargljufur River Canyon. The canyon was formed a few thousand years ago during a glacial period, leaving a snaking river behind when the ice sheet retreated.

The South Coast tour was the most enjoyable and beautiful experience of my 10-day trip to Iceland! And among all the tours I've been on, CHRISTINA is the best tour guide I've ever had! Christina kept a positive, enthusiastic attitude throughout the two days of the trip and brought positive energy to those around her. Very good at creating a lively atmosphere for everyone. Christina has great photo ideas and skills. I got so many awesome photos!! Also I really appreciate Christina's taste in music. I don't know how she found so much good music to suit the occasion perfectly. She also gave us a lot of useful advice and introduced a lot of history and stories about Iceland. An unforgettable experience!! I look forward to coming back to Iceland soon!

It was an awesome experience , I still have another 4 days in Iceland but I’m worried that I did the best first ;) was beautiful , some of the videos I took is like a nature documentary I booked this tour and was super excited. But it managed to beat my expectations. The diamond beach , the glacier hike and the boat tours were amazing as well the canyons and waterfalls Our guide David was super awesome, he did bunch of Extra stops as well just for us. He was very professional during the glacier hike and it was super smooth and amazing . I can’t say enough good things about the tour and the guide. I liked nicetravel so much that I canceled one of my tours and I booked another tour with them Also the minibuses are modern and they all have usb chargers and wifi I’m a solo traveler so I was a bit worried about the shared bed and breakfast situation , it turned out that getyourguide didn’t update their website and you just get a single room with private bathroom covered

A NICE tour along the South Coast of Iceland

The tour was well organized and gave us the chance to see so many beautiful sites on the South Coast, waterfalls, glaciers, black sand beaches and even more. The guide was knowledgeable and very professional, in driving and leading the glacier hike. The hostel where we stayed over night was very welcoming, clean and quiet. Food was good and affordable there.
