What to expect

Take a guided tour on a minibus to explore waterfalls, black sand beaches, and glaciers of Iceland's south coast. This tour should not be missed by anyone who wants to enjoy the essentials of Icelandic sightseeing. You will be picked up from Reykjavik in the morning by a minibus and your friendly, experienced guide. One of the first stops is Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, which is over 60 meters tall, tumbles from a cliff that curves inwards; allowing you to walk behind it and take excellent photos.

Skogafoss waterfall is next on your list, just down the route. 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. If the weather is clear, you’ll be able to see Eyjafjallajokull, the famous glacier and volcano that erupted in 2010.

You will also travel to Solheimajokull. This fascinating glacier tongue stretches from the greater ice cap Myrdalsjokull, which covers the volcano Katla, the eruptions of which are even bigger than Eyjafjallajokull's. It is about a 15-minute walk from the parking lot to a good viewpoint to admire the glacier.

The next destination on your list is Reynisfjara black sand beach. This stretch of coastline is renowned for its beauty, eeriness, and dramatic geology. Another very photogenic place with many hexagonal basalt columns. In summer, you may spot puffins up on the cliffs. The furthest stop on this tour is Vik - the southernmost village of Iceland. When you walk down the beach, you will be amazed by the sea stacks. Legend has it that the stack is in fact made up of the frozen figures of trolls who were turned to stone while playing in the sea. With all these features packed into a single day, you will then return to Reykjavík.
