Full description

Leave the city of Reykjavik behind to step into a world of wonder on a day trip to the South Coast and the Sky Lagoon. Walk up a winding path leading behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and view the mighty Sólheimajökull glacier. Watch the waves on Reynisfjara beach and wind down at the Sky Lagoon.

Make your way to the bus stop in the morning and head out towards the South Coast. Admire breathtaking scenery passing by your window on the drive and get ready to be blown away by what's to come.

Arrive at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and feel the power of its roaring waters. This unique waterfall has a walking path that leads all the way up and behind the flowing tide. Climb up and take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pose for a photo or see if you can find the hidden Gljúfrabúi waterfall.

Continue on to the magnificent Sólheimajökull glacier and learn about the importance of these geological behemoths. Walk towards the ice wall and wonder at the lagoon formed at its base and fed by the meltwater.

Take a break for lunch in the picturesque coastal town of Vik and explore the charming streets. Look out onto the imposing basalt sea stacks of Reynisdrangar where the sea disappears over the horizon.

Cross the short distance from Vik to the renowned Reynisfjara black sand beach. Listen carefully to the directions and warnings of your guide as this wild and windy beach is utterly beautiful but also dangerous. Experience surreal views of the beach from a safe distance and look out for the waves.

Tick-off another monumental sight of the South Coast at the Skógafoss waterfall. Hear the deafening roar of the 60-meter falls from below or climb up 370 steps to the top for idyllic views of your surroundings.

Head back towards Reykjavik and make your final stop of the day at the trendy thermal spa Sky Lagoon. Immerse yourself in the 7-step ritual program and renew your body, mind, and soul after a tiring day of sightseeing with the warm waters of the infinity pool.

Long travel, but absolutely worth it. Our lovely guide Mia has informed us about the places we visited themselves, and lots about Icelandic couture and history. The waterfalls, glacier and beach were absolutely amazing, and the Sky Lagoon was a good experience to relax after the intense day.

We went on the south coast and sky lagoon tour on Monday 13th February. Alan was our guide, he was brilliant, his knowledge on the history of Iceland was amazing, he also gave tips of where to eat in Reykjavik. We had a fantastic day despite the weather!

This tour is a must, although we had a few problems… bus getting stuck in the snow. It was still amazing! It would’ve been better to get longer in the Sky Lagoon but due to weather the tour overrun and and we didn’t get as long as we would’ve wanted. Karolina the guide was very good and informative. Would highly recommend this tour to others! The black sand beach is amazing.
