Pick-up in Reykjavik

Between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. we will pick you up at your hotel in Reykjavik or at a pick-up point close to your accommodation. Once on board the minibus, we will leave the city and enjoy the journey into the wilderness. The South coast and Waterfalls Iceland tour adventure has officially started!


Seljalandsfoss waterfall

In just a couple of hours, we will arrive at our first stop: the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This impressive waterfall can be experienced from all sides since you can fully encircle it. Take your camera and capture the water that falls with a drop of 60 meters (200 feet) while feeling the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. Did you know that Seljalandsfoss is one of Iceland's most famous and visited waterfalls?


Skogafoss waterfall

Not far from the Seljalandsfoss waterfall we will stop at our second location: the Skogafoss waterfall. This waterfall will definitely take your breath away seeing the water falling off the impressive Eyjafjoll Mountains cliffs with a drop of 60 meters long (200 feet) and a width of 25 meters (82 feet). Eat a snack and grab a drink while enjoying the impressive view. Next to the waterfall, there is a staircase of 527 steps up to the cliff overlooking the waterfall. Go ahead and climb the steps! Once upstairs, you will experience the impressive power of the water, as you see rainbows in the spray of the waterfall.


Sólheimajökull glacier

Our South coast and waterfall tour from Reykjavik continues with a 1 hour to 1 and a half hours hike on the Sólheimajökull glacier. Our tour guide will provide you with all equipment necessary to climb the Sólheimajökull glacier in a safe and easy way: helmets, harnesses, ice axes, and crampons. The guide will introduce us in detail to this rare natural phenomenon, its history, and how the ice forms at the tops of the mountains. Discover and experience all-natural wonders that the Sólheimajökull glacier hides: deep crevasses on the glacier surface and vertical shafts in the ice that are formed by melting water.


Reynisfjara, the black sand beach

Are you ready for the last activity of this South coast and waterfalls Iceland tour? Our last stop will be the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. Yes, you read that right, Reynisfjara is a black sand beach! With its unique black color that rises from volcanic ashes, stunning panoramic views of the Dýrhólaey cliffs, and roaring Atlantic waves, Reynisfjara beach is one of the places in Iceland that can not be missed! Fun fact: during summer dozens of unique birds such as puffins and razorbills come to this area to nest on top of the cliffs. Enjoy the sounds of the birds and waves, and take a walk on the black sand before heading back to the mini-bus that will take us to Reykjavik around 8:00 p.m. The South Coast and waterfalls Iceland tour has come to an end!
