    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...

You can enjoy the beautiful view from above after running up the 527 steps that lead to the top.

On the iconic black sand beach discover magnificent basalt columns as well as the rock pillars named Reynisdrangar. Be sure to watch out for the unpredictable sneaker waves while enjoying the magical view of the beach and Dyrhólaey cliffs in the distance.

    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!

    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

    6. 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 !

    After an early wake-up and pick-up in one of the coolest cities of Europe, take a great 10-hour tour to see Iceland. Make your first stop at waterfall Seljalandsfoss, with no doubt one of the most famous one in the country. This is a waterfall you can walk behind, with a drop off 65 meters and a part of the river Seljalandsá which has its origins underneath the glacier Eyjafjallajökull - the famous volcano that erupted in 2010 and put the world's flights on hold.  Head to the stunning waterfall Skógafoss, one of the largest at a width of 25 meters and drop off 60 meters. It can also be seen from above as there are footsteps that lead above the waterfall. Stop in Reynisfjara for lunch. Try Icelandic meat-soup or many other dishes.

What people are saying about Seljalandsfoss

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.
