    Vom Anfang bis zum Schluss gut organisierte und gut durchgeführte Tour! Anna hat uns perfekt durchgeführt und betreut- ja sie hat uns sogar ein Lied in echter „Wikingersprache“ vorgesungen Die Locations waren wunderschön, einfach nichts zu meckern und nur zu empfehlen! Ich habe vor dieser Tagestour einen Reiturlaub auf Islandpferden gemacht, also hat mir das Sitzen im Bus sehr gut gepasst nach all den Tölt- Strapazen

  • South Coast Classic: Full-Day Tour from Reykjavik

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

    On this 11-hour 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. The first stop is at the Sólheimajökull glacier, which is every photographer’s dream. Next on the itinerary is the Reynisfjara black sand beach. S...

    This was by far the best tour I did in Iceland. I honestly wish I had known about Troll tours before so that I couldn’t have booked all my tours with them. Our guide Michael was very nice and entertaining and made sure we had enough time to go see everything on the south coast. The glacier hike was also beautiful and the highlight of the trip and something I recommend everyone do!

  • South Coast: Glacier Hike and Tour from Reykjavik

    7. South Coast: Glacier Hike and Tour from Reykjavik

    A day on the glacier is a great way to experience Icelandic nature. Only 2-hours away from Reykjavík is a glacier called Sólheimajökull (Solheimajokull glacier), an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull (Myrdalsjokull glacier). It lies just east of the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted in the spring of 2010 and caused trouble all over Europe. When arriving at the glacier, your guide will get all the necessary equipment ready such as crampons and ice axe and then the group will head up to the glacier. Your guide will lead you through wonders of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses while telling you everything about the behavior of these ever-changing giants. About 2-hours will be spent on the ice. On the way back to Reykjavík, there will be a stop at the impressive waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

    Great tour that combined some stunning waterfalls and scenery with a Glacier Hike. We had a great tour guide who was driving the minibus to the south coast and telling us lots of interesting items about where we visiting and Iceland in general. What was really handy was the bus driver had some rubber cramp on type items for our feet to help us grip, as it was cold, snowy and icy at the waterfall's we visited these helped us get to the best spots for the great views (One viewing platform was really icy, but we got to it no problem). The Glacier Hike was amazing, and had all the proper gear (Ice Axe, Harness, Crampon's) to help us navigate up the glacier and to the plateau. Awesome views and amazing going through the glacier, just a shame it's melting so quickly.

  • South Coast & Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon

    8. South Coast & Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon

    Head along the beautiful south shore of Iceland to the extraordinary glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón, on this full-day tour.  Pass some charming villages as well as Skaftafell National Park and visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall and Skógarfoss waterfall. Just before you reach the lagoon, you'll pass Iceland’s biggest volcano, Öræfajökull glacier which has the highest peak of the island, Hvannadalshnjúkur. (2110 m). After arriving at the lagoon, enjoy some time to view this stunning area. Take a walk along the shore and admire the icebergs. During the summer season, amphibian boat tours on the lagoon are available at an extra cost (payable onsite). Jökulsárlón started to form in the early nineteen twenties and is getting bigger every year. You will see many amazing blocks of ice that have broken off Europe’s biggest glacier, Vatnajökull, as they sail slowly towards the ocean which is only a ki...

    It's a very long day, but worth it ro see the spectacular Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. The boast ride on the lagoon is not included, but I would highly recommend adding it to this trip.

  • Reykjavik: Small-Group South Coast Tour

    9. Reykjavik: Small-Group South Coast Tour

    You will be picked up from Reykjavik in the morning by your friendly, experienced guide. From here you will start your adventure as a small group of guests traveling in the minibus, guaranteeing that your experience will be both comfortable and personal. One of your first stops will be at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. This falls, which are over 60 meters tall, tumble from a cliff that curves inwards. This means when there is no ice on the ground, you are able to walk behind it, allowing for some excellent photograph opportunities. Skogafoss Waterfall is next on your list. Though as tall as Seljalandsfoss, it is many times wider and much more powerful. The scale of it is incredibly impressive, especially considering the amount of spray rising as the water smashes against the rocks below. Whilst here, you will be free to walk as close to the waterfall as you dare. If the weather is clear...

    Overall an awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a great storyteller. The group was indeed small, and we all had enough time at each stop to enjoy and see everything. Everyone was very friendly, and we were lucky enough to have nice sunny weather. 10/10 would recommend !

Our guide BG was amazing. You're lucky if you get him! He was full of cheeky, witty jokes, and he is extremely knowledgeable and insightful. To be honest, I was feeling under the weather. Everyone else in the trip was pretty hyped about everything and so BG was keeping up with their energy. But when he spoke to me, he matched my energy, and treated me kindly with respect. What a great guy! The trip itself was amazing too. We got very wet at the locations, from waterfalls to the black beach. So be prepared for that! It was truly awesome and inspiring. Highly recommend!

This was by far the best tour I did in Iceland. I honestly wish I had known about Troll tours before so that I couldn’t have booked all my tours with them. Our guide Michael was very nice and entertaining and made sure we had enough time to go see everything on the south coast. The glacier hike was also beautiful and the highlight of the trip and something I recommend everyone do!
