Know More about this tour

Enjoy a comprehensive, 9.5-10 hour day tour around the south coast of Iceland.

The day starts with complimentary pick up from hotels and guesthouses within the greater Reykjavik area. Pick-up starts at 8am and at 8:30am the tour leaves from Harpa, music and conference hall in downtown Reykjavik where the base is located.The size of the coach you will be travelling on depends on how many people are booked for the tour. It could be a 16 seater minibus or a 50 seater coach.

We will drive straight out of town heading for the south coast, and after driving for approximately 1.5 hours through Iceland's scenery we will take a short break at Hvolsvllur, where passengerscan use the bathrooms or buy coffee (own expense).

The next stop on the tour is the majestic waterfall Skgafoss, and from there we will drive up to Reynisfjara beach where it's possible to seethe black sands and basaltic columns. Usually we stop for lunch at Reynisfjara (own expense) but in some cases we may go to the small village of Vk and stop there instead. From Reynisfjara we will head to cape Dyrhlaey, the southernmost point of Iceland, where you can see itsmagnificent ocean cliffs.

The tour then takes passengers to Slheimajkull glacier where we take approximately a 15 minute walk up to the glaciers edge, on some days it's possible to walk close enough to touch the glacier.

From Slheimajkull it is around a 30 minute drive to the waterfall Seljalandsfoss. When the weather is mild it is possible to walk behind it. Seljalandsfoss is the last stop of the day and from there it's approximately a 2-hour drive back to Reykjavk where passengerswill be dropped off back at their hotel/guesthouses.

Please note that drop off might be close to your hotel rather than at the hotel door - this depends on accessibility.

This tour involves some short, relatively easy walks on the sites visited. It's recommended that you dress warmly because the weather in Iceland can change very quickly.
