Full description

If you are a nature lover, then this tour is made for you. It visits all the great attractions of the south coast, glaciers, the Black Beach of Reynisfjara, Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and of course, several of the beautiful waterfalls. 

The highlight of the tour is a Blue Ice Glacier Hike on Solheimajokull glacier which takes around 1.5-hours. Start by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser-known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui and Irafoss.

As you continue, drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where you will take a glacier hike for about 1.5-hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier. 

A bit further will be the great Reynisfjara Black Beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings. In one day, see two volcanoes and discover five amazing waterfalls, visit Reynisfjara and get up-close and personal with the sleeping ice giants that are glaciers during the glacier hike.

A perfect tour for the curious tourist and the inquisitive nature lover. This tour is available all year. Reserve it now to secure your spot on this South Iceland Tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Christina provided me and my family with one of the best days of our lives. I kid you not! She changed the order of attractions to maximize the lighting on the beautiful waterfalls of seljalandsfoss and gljuifrabul. She expertly dressed and led us on solheimajokull glacier hike, teaching us so many interesting facts like how dangerous a moulin waterfall can be. It looked like a serene course of water going down a hole in the ice, little did we know this hole plunged the entire depth of the glacier, a bottomless pit. Christina showed us so many extras, beautiful Vik with its amazing off shore rock formations, nesting sites of cute little puffins, Eyjafjallajokull volcano site whose eruption back in 2010 disrupted European air travel. It was a long glorious 12 hour day full of wonders and surprises thanks to Christina.

Amazing trip. Our tour guide Jones was super friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to his personal favorite waterfall off the tour paths, a truly magical location. The Glacier hike wasn't super challenging to someone with hiking experience (around 6km round trip), but had some amazing views. A long day (we were out for about 13hrs) but really is the best way to see the south coast, wouldn't have seen half a much on our own.

Super nice tour and great glacier hike! All guides from Nicetravel went out of their way to create a unique experience and show the beauty of the island, including stops at places that aren't the typical "tourist waterfalls", the 12 hours are used! The guide Jonas was very nice and helpful and we had a very good and fun return trip with Nikola. I would book the tour again in a heartbeat!
