Full description

If you are a nature lover, then this tour is made for you. It visits all the great attractions of the south coast, glaciers, the Black Beach of Reynisfjara, the Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano, and of course, several beautiful waterfalls. 

The highlight of the tour is a Blue Ice Glacier Hike on Solheimajokull glacier which takes around 1.5-hours. Start by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss, and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser-known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui and Irafoss.

As you continue, drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap. When the option with the glacier hike is selected (available on select dates), embark on a glacier hike for about 1.5 hours and get a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier. 

A bit further will be the great Reynisfjara Black Beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings. In one day, see two volcanoes and discover five amazing waterfalls, visit Reynisfjara and get up-close and personal with the sleeping ice giants that are glaciers during the glacier hike.

A perfect tour for the curious tourist and the inquisitive nature lover. This tour is available all year. Reserve it now to secure your spot on this South Iceland Tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Amazing tour with Maria of nice tours. Awesome all day adventure - with lots of information and humor to go along. Kept us entertained all day. Saw all the amazing sites. Never made us feel rushed but was able to see everything promises and more. Highly recommend this all day tour if staying a short time in Iceland and don’t want to drive.

Our tour starts right at the hotel with a very cheerful and friendly Christina. The tour itself is fantastically beautiful. We saw many wonderful natural phenomena, underlined by information and anecdotes from our excellent guides. Waterfalls, glaciers and the black beach - the 12 hours flew by in an entertaining manner. Highly recommended.
