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.

You see a lot in one day. The golden circle is a must see if you’re in Iceland and this tour combines golden circle with northern lights so you won’t feel like it was a waste of money if you don’t get to catch northern lights (they’re a hit or miss and seeing them is not always guaranteed). The golden circle tour showed most some of the most iconic sights of the country, which you would not be able to see unless you have your own means of transport. Unfortunately we did not see the northern lights in the tour - yet, ironically enough we saw them on our way back home from the tour! - but our guide was very knowledgeable about the local culture and customs, so during this visit he spoke mainly about the cultural aspect of Iceland which was also very interesting and engaging. Both tour guides were very knowledgeable and approachable. This tour was good value for what it offers.

A great tour with many sights. Our tour guide Svenbo was great. He provided us with a lot of information, answered questions and gave us tips. There was a lot to discover and experience and the nature in Iceland is simply overwhelming. Highly Recommended

After we changed the location again from our first point to Strandarkirkjan, we got to see incredibly great and very strong northern lights. Our guide Cora was also great and explained a lot

Everything went well, we visited geysers and a waterfall, we could not see the national park because we arrived there when it was still dark. Everything else is great!

guide at the top, the timing was perfectly respected from start to finish, the landscapes are all as sumptuous as each other, I highly recommend!
