Full description

Immerse yourself in Iceland’s unique natural landscape on a guided tour of the island’s south coast. Visit glaciers, the Black Beach of Reynisfjara, the Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano, and several waterfalls. Take a scenic hike around the Blue Ice Glacier Hike on Solheimajokull glacier.

Start by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss, and Skógafoss, as well as the lesser-known waterfalls Glufrabui and Irafoss. As you continue, drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap. 


If you’ve selected the option with the glacier hike (available on selected dates between April and October), you can embark on an optional glacier hike for about 1.5 hours and get a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier. 


Continue to Reynisfjara Black Beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings. See two volcanoes and discover five impressive waterfalls. Visit Reynisfjara and get up close to looming glaciers.

Best tour so far! The guide was funny and very engaging. He offered to stop the bus in case of northern lights on the way back. The bus was a bit small but comfortable. Many stops for sightseeing and toilets. For the value we paid, this tour was the absolute best. Highly recommended! We went on 20.02, I cannot remember the name of the guide but he is really an amazing person

We loved it! Our guide was very nice and friendly, he made the bus ride very enjoyable for us, since it is an excursion that takes many hours. The landscapes are incredible and the time they give is necessary to see each area and take some photos. Many stops are made to eat and go to the bathroom. The only downside is that it was a mini bus and we were quite tight on space, with our coats, backpacks and the rest of the hikers.

Reykjavik owes me nothing! What a truly awesome experience of the Waterfalls, Glaciers and the Black Sand Beach. Vlad our tour guide was so attentive and informative. In addition to the scheduled activities, on our return trip back to the hotels, Vlad pulled over to the side of the road and we were treated to seeing the Northern Lights - a big bonus! I would certainly be willing to go on another tour with Vlad and see more Reykjavik sights!
