Full description

Ride from Reykjavik and journey to the south of Iceland. Stop to see the majestic Skógafoss waterfall. Walk along the black sand beach of Reynisfjara, and reach Vik I Myrdal, the southernmost tip of the country. Visit hidden waterfalls on the way back, one underneath the Volcano Eyjafjallajökull.

Pass the Hellisheiðarvirkjun geothermal power plant that supplies the capital's energy and travel through the mountain pass. Capture the ocean view and see the ice cap of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, with a chance to spot the Westman Islands.

Arrive at the stunning Skógafoss waterfall, known for it's appearance in Game of Thrones. Become speechless as it falls 60 meters and try to find the legendary hidden treasure behind it.

Visit one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world, the Reynisfjara black sand beach. View the basalt columns and hear the intriguing stories and sagas that are connected to this amazing place.

Reach the southern tip of the country, Vik I Myrdal. Find the charming fishing village, visit the local church, and view the entire settlement. Stop on the way back and see the Sólheimajökull glacier.

Finish the day at the exquisite Seljalandsfoss waterfall, tucked underneath the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Take a chance to walk behind it and visit its hidden cousin, Gljúfrabúi, before heading back to Reykjavik.

Great trip to the south coast. We also had great weather. For our taste sometimes far too little time in certain places, such as e.g. E.g. the black sand beach. Only 20 minutes for such a great and unusual place is far too short. You could have skipped the detour to Vik instead, because you didn't see anything exciting except for the church and the view from up there. All in all a recommendable tour.

It was a great tour, covered a lot of great places and our guide Julian was incredibly great! He not only provided a lot of information and interesting trivia about the places but made the whole tour a lot more fun. He made the effort to talk to everyone, which was really appreciated. I would highly recommend the tour, especially with Julian as the guide!

Loved it! It may seem expensive but you really get your value for money. Our guide, Kristof was very knowledgeable and fun. There was enough time at each location. It was obvious that the day trip had been really well tried and tested. It worked really well as a small group tour. I think it would have been hard to do such much site-seeing on a coach with more people to reign in at certain times.
