Product Description

South Coast Tour Iceland

You will travel in a minibus to admire the south coast of Iceland – waterfalls, black sand beaches, glaciers and volcanoes. This tour should not be missed by any who want to enjoy the essentials of Icelandic sightseeing.

One of your first stops will be at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. This falls, which is over sixty metres tall, tumbles from a cliff that curves inwards; this means when there is no ice on the ground you can walk behind it, allowing for some excellent photographs.

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. You can walk as close to the waterfall as you dare.

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 15 min 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 mid-summer, we will possibly see puffins, unique and very photogenic seabirds, at amazing rock formations at Dyrhólaey 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 petrified while playing in the sea.

All departures require a minimum of 4 participants in order to operate. Gateway to Iceland reserves the right to delay, alter or cancel any tour due to weather or any other unsafe conditions for the safety of our clients.

“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.
