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.

Despite the weather we had a fabulous day . Our Guide Daniel was excellent from start to finish . He was very knowledgeable and explained all about the wonderful waterfalls , glacier and the black beach . He was also funny and definitely had (what we say in Ireland ) the gift of the gab . Which means he is a great talker . Despite the rain we saw everything on the trip and thoroughly enjoyed our day and learned a lot about Ireland . Huge thanks to the bus driver too . I would definitely recommend this trip .

Very good trip with Monika, who was a great guide. Also credit goes to Michal the driver, who drove in some icy conditions. This trip was worth the money. 10 hours seems long until you spend the day going to these sites. The day flew. Fabulous day out & we were extremely lucky it was a sunny day so picturesque blue skies and stunning scenery. Loved the glacier stop but sad to know if my kids went back at my age, they will no longer be there to see due to global warming. Seeing this was the highlight of my short trip to Iceland! Glad I chose this your over the Golden Circle for my first visit. Hopefully will be back another time to do that part :)

Brilliant tour!! epically beautiful scenery the whole way and lots of great stops and leg stretches. Our guide was very informative and told us loads about Iceland, especially how the eruptions affect the local people and what it was like when it happened. Fascinating! The waterfalls were spectacular and hasn't been a highlight of the itinerary for me but once there, WOW!!! Touching and seeing a glacier has to be up there with amazing things to do before you die. I felt like I was back in our ancient past with this tour, I'll never forget it!
