South Coast Classic: Full-Day Tour from Reykjavik

1. South Coast Classic: Full-Day Tour from Reykjavik

On this full-day tour, you’ll follow the coastline from Reykjavík into the volcanic and glaciated wonderland that is Iceland's south coast. Walk behind the thundering veil of spray at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and take in the incredible views from the top of the Skógafoss waterfall. Your tour begins with a drive through lava fields, passing by the active Hengill volcano, and then down to rich coastal farmlands. On clear days you’ll be able to see the Hekla volcano, and in the distance the glacier-capped Eyjafjallajökull volcano rises majestically above the coastal mountains. Just a few kilometers off the coastline and easily visible are the volcanic Westman Islands, an archipelago of around 15 small islands, only one of which is inhabited. Stop at the Sólheimajökull glacier, which is every photographer’s dream. Next on the itinerary is the Reynisfjara black sand beach. See the powerful Atlantic waves crashing on the black sands, the jagged basalt sea stacks and the huge basalt-column cave. Next you’ll head to the coastal village of Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the island’s main ring road. Despite its small size (291 inhabitants), it is the largest settlement for 70 kilometers. On your way back to Reykjavík, you’ll stop by the powerful Skógafoss waterfall for a short walk up a flight of steps to admire one of Iceland´s most scenic views. The view takes in glaciers, volcanoes and black sandy beaches. The last stop is at the 60-meter-high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, best known for the hidden pathway behind and around it.

What people are saying about Skógar

Everything was really good and take you to all interesting and beautiful places and manage to see them with they light.The guides are nice and tell some interesting histories about Iceland. The only thing I didn't like is that the stops in the waterfolls,glacier...are too short,we had just the time to get to them ,take some pictures and back to the bus,very few time to admire these wonderful of nature. still with day light we came back to Reykiavik,from my point of view they should take advantage of the day light giving some more time to the see atractions. But it does worth the excursion!!!.Beautifull

This was such a great tour. The your guide was super knowledgeable, the sites were amazing and we were super lucky that the weather was perfect! It's a great way to see some of the south coast in a day.

Such a great tour! You def need waterproof clothes if you want to get close to the waterfalls! It says no jeans but doesn’t say why and we almost dismissed it and wore jeans.

Lots of fun. Definitely worth doing. The tour guide was alright but wish they spoke more when we were driving as there are so many sights in Iceland!

A long day but full of amazing sights. Wear waterproofs and pack extra socks if you really want to enjoy the waterfalls!
