Full description

Explore Iceland's South Coast on a 2-day guided tour from Reykjavik. Experience stunning views of Solheimajokull glacier and listen to the waves crashing into Reynisfjara black sand beach. Spot seals swimming in Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and admire Fjadrargljufur River Canyon.

Begin by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting the lesser known, more secret waterfall of Glufrabui. You will stop so that you can buy lunch. Drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where you can take part in an optional glacier hike for about 1.5 hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier.

Admire the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings. After overnighting in an Icelandic countryside accommodation, take a closer look at majestic glaciers and lagoons.

Choose to enhance your experience with a 1.5-2 hour-long guided glacier hike. Pick this option and have with all the necessary safety equipment to enjoy the stunning blue ice.

Visit the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and take an optional amphibious boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. See the huge chunks of ice crack off the Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier and float slowly out to sea. See icebergs lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin.

Spot seals swimming around the huge icebergs before visiting the turf-roofed church Hofskirkja and Fjadrargljufur River Canyon. The canyon was formed a few thousand years ago during a glacial period, leaving a snaking river behind when the ice sheet retreated.

David was an amazing tour guide and he spoke to us the history of all the sites as well as bringing us to all our check points on time. He was taking care of the group well especially during the glacier hike. Lots of places visited and he included appropriate rest stops during the way!

The tour was absolutely brilliant and I’m so glad I decided to do a 2-day one for the South Coast. This way, it was about 5 hours of driving each day, not 10 and we got to see more and didn’t have to rush at every stop. All the sights we visited were absolutely stunning and beautiful. We were super lucky with the weather, but I’m sure everything would be well worth it even in the rain. The glacier hike was amazing and our guide, Christina, made sure that everyone was safe and could participate. We could not have asked for a better guide! Christina was super fun and shared so much helpful and interesting information about Iceland with us. She also adjusted the order of the itinerary so we could avoid some crowds and make the best of the weather that was forecast. And she also made a few very nice and stunning extra stops that everyone loved, making sure we could really get the most out of our trip. I definitely strongly recommend this tour, especially with Christina as the guide!

The South Coast tour was the most enjoyable and beautiful experience of my 10-day trip to Iceland! And among all the tours I've been on, CHRISTINA is the best tour guide I've ever had! Christina kept a positive, enthusiastic attitude throughout the two days of the trip and brought positive energy to those around her. Very good at creating a lively atmosphere for everyone. Christina has great photo ideas and skills. I got so many awesome photos!! Also I really appreciate Christina's taste in music. I don't know how she found so much good music to suit the occasion perfectly. She also gave us a lot of useful advice and introduced a lot of history and stories about Iceland. An unforgettable experience!! I look forward to coming back to Iceland soon!
