    Marvel at the dramatic south of Iceland and its coastline on a 10-hour small-group tour from Reykjavik. This excursion to Iceland’s stunning South Coast is ideal for nature lovers.

Continue to the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, where the active Katla volcano is located under the icecap.

  • Reykjavik: Small-Group South Coast Tour

    2. Reykjavik: Small-Group South Coast Tour

    You will be picked up from Reykjavik in the morning by your friendly, experienced guide. From here you will start your adventure as a small group of guests traveling in the minibus, guaranteeing that your experience will be both comfortable and personal. One of your first stops will be at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. This falls, which are over 60 meters tall, tumble from a cliff that curves inwards. This means when there is no ice on the ground, you are able to walk behind it, allowing for some excellent photograph opportunities. Skogafoss Waterfall is next on your list. Though as tall as Seljalandsfoss, it is many times wider and much more powerful. The scale of it is incredibly impressive, especially considering the amount of spray rising as the water smashes against the rocks below. Whilst here, you will be free to walk as close to the waterfall as you dare. If the weather is clear...

    Overall an awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a great storyteller. The group was indeed small, and we all had enough time at each stop to enjoy and see everything. Everyone was very friendly, and we were lucky enough to have nice sunny weather. 10/10 would recommend !
