Guided Full-Day Tour of Iceland's South Coast from Reykjavik

This tour from Reykjavik covers the highlights of Iceland’s south coast in a single day. Travel by minibus to the waterfalls of Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the black-sand beach of Reynisfjarna, and the Solheimajokull Glacier, where you’ll walk right up to touch the ice. Learn about the area’s unique geology and culture from your guide along the way, and enjoy convenient hotel pickup and drop-off for a hassle-free day.

What to Expect
Your tour begins with a morning pickup in a minibus from your Reykjavik hotel. Along the way, your guide introduces you to the geology, history, and folklore of the small but fascinating country of Iceland.

Stop at the thundering waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss and, on a clear day, see the famed Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which caused air-travel havoc when it erupted in 2010. The next stop is Reynisfjara to see a black-sand beach, as well as surrounding basalt columns and towering sea stacks. In summer, look out for puffins and other seabirds, and take a lunch break here or in the neighboring village of Vík (own expense).

Next, head for Solheimajokull glacier, one of the outlet tongues of the icecap Myrdalsjokull. Walk right up to the glacier’s edge and touch the ice. With luck, you might even find an ice cave.

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel

Fabulous sites, dreadful tour.

If I could, I'd give two separate ratings. 5* for the sites we saw - the waterfalls, black sand beaches and glaciers are a must. But be careful who you go with. Having had a great golden circle tour with another company I was excited...More

I think I recall it wrapped up around 1930, but we were the last stop on the Reykjavik drop-off loop. Check with GeoIceland to be certain.
