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. Along the way, discover a variety of rivers, waterfalls, mountains, and glaciers.

Following a pickup from listed hotels or guesthouses by bus in central Reykjavík, travel to the gorgeous waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. 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 at Reynisfjara, Iceland’s southernmost village just south of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, before returning to Reykjavik.

Gorgeous landscapes that take your breath away. We arrive everywhere in safety thanks to Kristmondour way of driving. Perla was amazing she is really funny and she gave us a lot information about the island and the culture. You definitely have to do this tour when you come to Iceland. Thank you guys for the amazing experience!

I went to Iceland last minute and must confess it was the best decision ever. I booked this tour some days in advance not knowing much except I wanted to see the black beach and the glacier. Our tour guide Alan was amazing and kept us entertained with all the Icelandic stories and history. I give it to him, Alan knows his history. The places visited were incredible and the timing was fair considering the distances. As a bonus he took us to a waterfall, a hidden gem taking into consideration the weather was great. If you don’t have much time and want to enjoy Iceland beauties in a nutshell I definitely recommend this tour (if you are lucky with Alan)

Fantastic experience. Well worth while but do listen to your guide... the Black Sand beaches were amazing and without the guidance of our host could of been dangerous with the Sneaker waves so very glad we paid for the Guide. I would say, the waterfall you can walk behind, on the get your Guide website, it does say weather dependant, but in fact that does mean in the summer period only so we had no chance anyway. Highly recommend despite the length of coach time
