Product Description

On this Iceland South Coast tour, you will travel east along Iceland’s south shore and visit two magnificent waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss, a tall thin beauty of 63 meters which you can walk behind and Skogafoss, a 60-meter roaring giant that you can approach as close as you dare. There is also the beautiful black sand Reynisfjara beach with a few magnificent sea caves to explore. Basalt columns rocks are surrounding the beach and you will also witness powerful waves crashing into these rocks (be careful and stay far away from the waves!). In mid-summer we will possibly see puffins, unique and very photogenic seabirds, at amazing rock formations at Dyrhólaey cliffs. We’ll also visit the glacier snout of Solheimajökull, an ever-changing and moving natural wonder. The furthest stop on this tour is Vík i Mýrdal, the Iceland’s Southernmost village, and we will show you there the famous sea stacks which are said to be petrified trolls.

“Competent tour of South shore attractions”

Rick H (Baltimore, Maryland)

The "South Shore Adventure" day trip fromReykjavik is a great introduction to this part of Iceland. Better with sunshine I am certain but adaptations were made by our guide to mitigate this. Our guide, who's name I shall not try to spell, was knowledgable about anything one could imagine asking about. The smaller size of the vehicle and group was advantageous for efficient maneuvering and getting in and out to visit compared to a tour bus. All of the goals of the trip were well met.

“Excellent Experience!”

Bonbonaya (New York, NY)

My husband and I did the South Coast tour with Gateway to Iceland this August. It was an excellent tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the sights, but also shared with us his opinions, thoughts, and insights to other aspects of Icelandic society and culture. The tour was also small-- 7 people (including ourselves)-- which made for a very intimate and personable experience. We highly recommend Gateway to Iceland.
