Black Beach and Waterfalls of the South Shore

This adventure will blow your mind with beauty, diversity and the powerful forces of nature.

We will see waterfalls, black beaches and green fields, but also pass through some of the small villages along the shore where we get the sense of local community.

Enjoy the view from the car and by foot. Feel the power of the ocean as we stroll the black beach and the waterfalls as we enjoy them from diverse angles.


We'll meet in the greater Reykjavík area.

We start the adventure by heading south and passing the geothermal area at Hellisheiði, heading down to Hveragerði, a town of hot springs and greenhouses.

We then head further to the beautiful waterfall Seljalandsfoss. Passing the world famous glacier Eyjafjallajökull we head for another waterfall, the magnificent Skógarfoss.

Our next stop will be at the black beach Reynisfjara, where we will absorb the beauty and power of the sea and surrounding cliffs of Dyrhólaey.

The final destination will be the small town Vík.

At the end, we'll return back to an agreed upon spot in the greater Reykjavík area.
