Experience what many consider to be the most beautiful part of Iceland

The drive along the south coast of Iceland is one of the most scenic one in the country, and in this tour we will drive as far as the charming village of Vík.

Immerse yourself in the Beautiful South Shore with its powerful and breathtaking waterfalls and glaciers, black beaches, dramatic mountains and incredible rugged and untouched nature.


We start by visiting the Lava Center museum where you can examine the various volcanic eruptions and lava flows, volcanic and rift systems, faults and glacial floods that make Iceland a showcase of volcanism, which is a great way to start the day since we will be driving at much of the area that is explored at the Lava Center.

Along the way we stop at the gorgeous 60m (196 ft. ) high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is unique since you can walk behind it and through to the other side (NOTE that during Winter sometimes it is not possible to walk behind the waterfall due to Ice and security reasons).
Our next stop is at the majestic and much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall, with its 60 m (196 ft. ) drop.
Other highlights include the stunning Solheimajokull glacier, and the black sand coastline and impressive Reynisdrangar rock formations, near Vík.
If you do not add any activities to the tour we will visit some extra sights and since this is a private tour we can customize the tour to your needs.

A Recent Review of this tour

WOW! What a day, Bjorn covered all the top sites of the south, on our 2nd of 3 days, where he kept us one step ahead of the buses without ever feeling hurried. We were able to spend as much or as little time at each location, making the most of our day. He gave us an insiders look at the sites and was a lot of fun to spend the day with. Bjorn well exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend spending a day, two or more with him. We hope to come back again and have Bjorn show us the rest of Iceland.
