Full description
This full-day coach tour of Iceland’s stunning South Shore from Reykjavik is ideal for nature lovers, as you will drive through one of the country's most scenic regions, reaching as far as Vík, surrounded by high cliffs that attract an abundance of birdlife. Departing from Reykjavik, you will drive to the gorgeous Seljarlandsfoss Waterfall, unique in the fact that you can walk behind it through to the other side. Continue to the majestic, and much photographed, Skógafoss Waterfall. Located on the former coastline of Iceland before it receded seward, the 200-foot (60-meter) drop is one of the biggest in the country. Continue through the glacial landscape of Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, where the icecap covers the active Katla volcano. Drive along the black sand coastline, where the beaches are formed out of black basalt, and see the impressive Reynisdrangar rock formations near Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland. Located on the main road that circumnavigates Iceland, it’s approximately 110 miles (180 kilometers) from Reykjavik, where you will head back at the end of a long but awe-inspiring journey.

Albert the tour guide was amazingly educated, funny and you could tell he really cared about the tour he was giving! he even went out of his way to show us some additional sites that weren't on the agenda! amazing set of waterfalls and the black sand beach was like nothing else.

Doing this tour in winter with snow lying every but sunny weather was really a dream come true. I would recommend it to anybody, as the planning is very good and the stops are excellent. We were just a bit short of time as one road was blocked and we made a detour of approx. half an hour.

The excursion was very good. All the places we visited were beautiful and interesting. We really liked our guide, Gus, who told us a lot of interesting facts about the places we visited, as well as about Iceland's history and landscape. The only minus was that we did not have much time at each attraction (30 to 40 minutes each).
