Begin your tour with pick-up from your central Reykjavik hotel, then hop aboard a minibus and set out for Iceland’s spectacular south coast. After a short break in Hvolsvöllur, jump out to admire the narrow cascade of the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most photographed sights. Take time to walk behind the waterfall (rain coats recommended) and enjoy the famous falls from a unique angle. Next, visit the nearby Skógafoss waterfalls, where you’ll have chance to walk along the cliff top and look down over the mighty falls below.
Continue your journey along the dramatic south coast, stopping to stretch your legs on the black sand beach of Reynisfjara. It’s an eerily beautiful sight, with the swathes of black sand, jagged basalt sea stacks and natural arch of Dyrhólaey offering ample photo opportunities, so be sure to bring your camera.
Pause for a lunch break (own expense) in Vik before visiting Kirkjubæjarklaustur village and the Svartifoss waterfall in Skaftafell National Park, famed for its unusual dark lava columns.
Finally, arrive at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a year-round winter wonderland of floating icebergs and icy waters, framed by snow-capped peaks. For summer visitors, a boat cruise around the lagoon is also included, aboard an amphibian boat that will allow you to soak up the scenery from both land and water.
After free time to explore or hike around the lagoon, jump back aboard for the return journey to Reykjavík. They’ll be plenty of bathroom and snack stops along the way, and winter visitors might even get chance to spot the Northern Lights (not guaranteed).
Please note that the boat tour only operates during summer until the end of October – in winter the boat ride is not included and the total tour price is lower. However, winter visitors will get chance to view the ice chunks on Diamond Beach near the Jökulsárlón lagoon, which are not visible in the summer.

Nothing like this landscape!! A great way to see highlights of Iceland outside of the Golden Circle. I think it's much more beautiful than the Golden Circle, personally.

This tour was amazing. The Glacier Lagoon was our favorite place we visited while in Iceland. It was a long tour but the day was planned out well. We saw a lot of the south coast on the way. Our guide was great! He knew a ton of info and we learned a lot. I would highly recommend this tour.

This is was a great tour! I would highly recommend it. The best parts were that it was a small group about 8 of us and our driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable about the country. We hit all the main spots of the south coast of Iceland and had ample time at all of them. Definitely pack snacks and water as it is a long day.

We got to see so much of the south coast - it was amazing. It was a little bit rushed, since we had to make it to the Glacier Lagoon at a certain time, but the sights we got to see were amazing, and a lot of them in one trip! If you're doing a southern coast tour - this is the one you'll want, the Glacier Lagoon is worth the extra time/money! Our guide was friendly, and was able to role with the punches -- our mini-bus broke down, sadly, but he worked hard to get us another vehicle so we could finish out our tour and see still everything. And we did, we didn't miss a thing, and the delay actually helped so we got the perfect lighting by the time we reached the Glacier Lagoon! :D

We just thanked that this tour was not cancelled due to a very severe weather. If it's cancelled we won't have a chance to see this part of Iceland. And we come from half of the world to Iceland. Means we might not visit Iceland again as it's so far away from our country.
It was very beautiful and we did the lagoon cruise. Good John, our guide was very informative and he gave us very enough time to explore each places. And even we stopped several unusual spot, like the oldest Catholic church near the lagoon and moss field. He also shared Iceland trolls and elves stories during the long trip. He also recommend several places to eat and his recommendation were really good.
Too bad we didn't catch any Northern light because of the weather. But I really recommend this tour!

This tour of the South Coast and Lagoon was amazing! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Taking a boat ride on the lagoon was the highlight of our trip! However, you should be aware that you will not see the Skaftafell waterfall. I was disappointed that we didn't not get the chance to see Skaftafell, but other than that this tour is worth it!

Waterfalls everywhere. The waterfall stops were long enough to enjoy the beauty and to take pictures. Such a beautiful drive through farm country. Wondering what it might be like to live with a waterfall in the back yard. The glacial lagoon proved to be spectacular. One of the icebergs flipped over exposing the pure turquoise blue ice. Guide said that it is something which happens about once a month. The boat captain stopped often so we could take the pictures we wanted, and we even got to taste the glacial ice. The beaches were stunning with the black sand, floating ice chunks and powerful waves. A very long, but memorable day with a guide full of interesting stories. The small group made it easy to be at the bus at the right times so no wasted time or lost companions. Expensive, but a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This tour was amazing and is a great option for bring able to see a lot of Icelands Southcoast. If you are staying in downtown Reykjavik it's worth the money as the driving yourself could be tricky as the roads and weather are quite unique is Iceland! Worth the money!
