What you can expect
A wonderland of volcanoes, sprawling glaciers, and black-sand beaches, the south coast is one of Iceland's most breathtaking natural attractions. This tour takes you to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skógafoss Waterfall, Sólheimajökull glacier, and Reynisfjara beach to see all Iceland has to offer.
Depart from Reykjavik in the morning, following the North Atlantic coastline down to the south coast. Get your first example of Iceland's natural beauty as you drive through lava fields surrounding the active Hengill volcano. Steaming springs and fumaroles dot the landscape as you pass, and on clear days you can catch sight of the Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes in the distance. Your tour continues to the Sólheimajökull, a breathtakingly photogenic glacier where frosty blue and white ice mingles with dark lava.
After being mesmerized by Sólheimajökull, make your way to Reynisfjara, where the Atlantic Ocean pounds against black sands and surreal basalt columns that resemble a step pyramid. Make a short stop in nearby Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland, then begin making your way back to Reykjavik. On the way, visit the enormous Skógafoss waterfall, which spans 82 feet (25 m) in width. Your final stop of your tour before reaching Reykjavik is at Seljalandsfoss, one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland with a 200-foot (60-m) drop and a footpath that winds behind the falls itself.
