Full description

Spend the day exploring the dramatic landscapes of the south of Iceland along with its coastline on a full-day sightseeing tour from Reykjavik.

Following a pick-up from listed hotels or guesthouses in central Reykjavík, travel to the gorgeous waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Along the way, pass a variety of rivers, waterfalls, mountains, and glaciers.

At the waterfall at Seljalandsfoss, walk behind the cascades and feel the spray on your face. Continue to Skógafoss to marvel at the 60-meter drop. Pass the black sand beaches of the southern coast and enjoy the power of the sea.

Visit the glacier snout of Sólheimajökull to see an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull. Admire the ever-changing feat of nature up-close. Then, look at the basalt sea stacks in the town of Vik, Iceland’s southernmost village just south of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, before returning to Reykjavik.

This was our second attempt as our original reservation partially happened due to severe weather conditions. Monica, our guide, was kind enough to show us other places in lieu of those we missed on our first trip. The “real” trip happened the next day, and we had a blast. South Iceland does have a lot of beautiful spots to boast of.

We had a guided tour today with Matt and Tomrek our brilliant bus driver. We got the see the magnificent scenery of Iceland while also learning about important issues such as global warming as you can literally see the glaciers melting! Matt has a wealth of knowledge about Icelandic culture, customs, nature etc etc as well as loads of fun facts just to top it off! Absolutely brilliant tour, would 100% recommend it!

The South of Iceland is a must-do for anyone visiting. I would highly recommend this tour as it took away all the stress of planning it yourself, the sites you see are incredible and it's an added bonus having a great guide and driver (Monika & Michal) who can talk through the history of Iceland. My partner and I really loved this tour and Monika was a great guide! She is really passionate about what she does which brought the tour to life. 10/10
