Full description

Leave the city of Reykjavik behind to step into a world of wonder on a day trip to the South Coast and the Sky Lagoon. Walk up a winding path leading behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and view the mighty Sólheimajökull glacier. Watch the waves on Reynisfjara beach and wind down at the Sky Lagoon.

Make your way to the bus stop in the morning and head out towards the South Coast. Admire breathtaking scenery passing by your window on the drive and get ready to be blown away by what's to come.

Arrive at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and feel the power of its roaring waters. This unique waterfall has a walking path that leads all the way up and behind the flowing tide. Climb up and take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pose for a photo or see if you can find the hidden Gljúfrabúi waterfall.

Continue on to the magnificent Sólheimajökull glacier and learn about the importance of these geological behemoths. Walk towards the ice wall and wonder at the lagoon formed at its base and fed by the meltwater.

Take a break for lunch in the picturesque coastal town of Vik and explore the charming streets. Look out onto the imposing basalt sea stacks of Reynisdrangar where the sea disappears over the horizon.

Cross the short distance from Vik to the renowned Reynisfjara black sand beach. Listen carefully to the directions and warnings of your guide as this wild and windy beach is utterly beautiful but also dangerous. Experience surreal views of the beach from a safe distance and look out for the waves.

Tick-off another monumental sight of the South Coast at the Skógafoss waterfall. Hear the deafening roar of the 60-meter falls from below or climb up 370 steps to the top for idyllic views of your surroundings.

Head back towards Reykjavik and make your final stop of the day at the trendy thermal spa Sky Lagoon. Immerse yourself in the 7-step ritual program and renew your body, mind, and soul after a tiring day of sightseeing with the warm waters of the infinity pool.

Monica (guide) and Tomac (driver) from BusTravel Iceland were outstanding! Monica is so knowledgeable and knows just about everything about Iceland from the types of trees to the people. I learned so much and she helped us appreciate what we were seeing so much more. Out of all of the places we have visited, this was by far our favorite. A wonderful trip all around!

An amazing tour. We loved everything we saw, and although it would’ve been nice to have a bit more time at each place, that is not what guided tours are like and we did have just enough time! Our tour guide Karolina was amazing; attentive, very friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, withand really brought the landscape alive for us! Also shared lots of really interesting information about glaciers, volcanoes, and the impact of climate change on Iceland. I would recommend anybody taking this to her bring your own external charger for your cell phone, as there were no slots in the bus.
