Remeber to bring some food and drinks with you for lunch, if you wish you can also use one of the stops on the way to buy some snacks at own expense. Your guide will make sure you give you a break to enjoy your lunch around midway through your south shore tour.

Drive through fertile farmlands and typical Icelandic villages and liste to tales of the countrys rich Viking history and heritage. Stop at the spectacular Seljalandsfoss waterfall, make sur to snap photos of its rushing waters as they plunge from a former sea cliff.

Catch glimpses of the Eyjafjallajkull and Hekla volcanos (depending on weather), and stop for a short glacier exploration at Solheimajokull glacier.

Lookfor the Westnan Iskabds rusubg steeply off the coast, and travel to the popular Black sand beach of Reynisfjara, where black pebbles sit beneath cliffs of pillar-like basalt stacks.
