Full description
The South coast of Iceland has so much to offer. We start by driving south on Highway 1 and will explain the geology of Iceland as we drive. We will show you many of the amazing and exciting places that have emerged in Iceland in both the past and the present. We'll stop and look at the magnificent waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, and then you will see from a distance Iceland’s most famous volcanic glacier Eyjafjallajökull that erupted in the summer 2010. Our next destination is the small town of Vik, where we will take a longer stop to enjoy a good lunch and visit the local wool shop before we head back. On the way back following the coastline, we drive to a beautiful black sandy beach called Reynisfjara. There you can get close to the basaltic rock pillars that you saw from you lunch table at Vik, and also see the power that the sea has on the land and the fabulous prints it leaves on the landscape. Next we visit Dyrhólaey, which is home for several thousand puffins that come every summer to nest. (Dyrhólaey is subject to preservation during a part of the year, making this stop unavailable). After we have absorbed the beautiful coastal scenery, and taken lots of photographs, we head out towards the glacier Sólheimajökull. You will drive right up to the glacier’s edge and get to touch it. After a full-day touring, it is time to return to Reykjavik, taking with us beautiful images and memories from the south coast of Iceland, a place that we are certain you will visit again one day.

Intense tour with surprising sites

Boris was a considerate guide who listened to our very small group: 6 people, almost an individual circuit. The entire program mentioned in the description has been carried out: the magnificent waterfalls, the cliffs, Vik, the glacier ... each time with time to visit. His good humor and optimism got the better of the bad weather!

Great Tour - Highly Recommend!!

This was a great tour - very well organised and there was plenty of time to spend at each site. The main reason I selected this tour was because it was by minibus, and I am glad I did. There werr only 18 of us, which was a much nicer way to see the sites rather than crowding into a giant bus like some of the other tour companies do. Especially in Winter when there is limited daylight hours, it is much easier to keep on schedule when there are less people to round up! Our tour guide was great, and very knowledgeable and funny. I spent hours and hours researching which South Coast tour to do, and I am glad I picked this one and I highly recommend it.

Top trip, beautiful scenery brilliant experience.

All in one local driver and guide, bid an excellent job both as driver in extreme weather conditions (at one point total white out blizzard) and with his extensive local knowledge which he readily imparted. He also adapted the trip adhoc, to give us more time at different stops and avoid crowed venues. The sights on this trip are breath taking, literally on the cold wild black sand Atlantic coast but on less stunning.
