What You Can Expect

South Coast Classic Day Trip from Reykjavik with Guide and Touchscreen Audio

Skógafoss on the South Coast

Meet your tour coach at your Reykjavik hotel in the early morning to embark on your 11-hour tour of Iceland's southern coast. Find your seat and enjoy onboard WiFi, USB charging ports at each seat, and an audio guide available in 10 languages.

Take off along the North Atlantic coast and into the volcanoes and lava fields in Hengill. Arrive in the rolling farmland of the southern coastline, with views of the Hekla Volcano on sunny days. Catch a glimpse of the Eyjafjalljökull Volcano and the glaciers on its slopes, as well as the jagged, volcanic Vestmannaeyjar Islands punctuating the ocean that lies beyond. 

Make your initial stop at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, a 196-foot (60-meter) cascade, which you can skirt on foot due to its hidden posterior pathway. Continue to the Skógafoss Waterfall; climb a short flight of stairs to the top to see one of the country's best lookout points.

At Sólheimajökull Glacier, break out your camera for fantastic photos of the otherworldly ice fields. Next, walk on the dark landscape of Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, watching the ocean crash up against the jagged basalt sea stacks and columns.

Return to your Reykjavik hotel for drop-off after your 11-hour adventure has concluded.

Wonderful trip, even though 11 hours is daunting we had a great time. Did not feel rushed, had enough time to spend at each attraction and photos. Although lunch is not included, it does make a 1 hour lunch stop. Guide was witty, knowledgeable, you even get free wi-fi on the bus although don't recommend going on device at all during the tour. Each turn of the bus opens up a beautiful scene in your view, should fully enjoy the ride. Walking behind the waterfall is a must if your body is comfortable, it's a lot of fun. keep an umbrealla on you because it can start drizzling in Iceland any time. Black sand beaches are beutiful.

One tip: Even though it gives you GPS driven audio device that you listen to and then a live guide fills in the rest of the info,, they do not provide headphone set. You have to buy it for 1000 Krona which is 10 USD. I am glad we had enough headphone sets in our drawstring backpack for all 4 of us.

Great tour! We waited outside in a chilly Icelandic morning the full 30 minutes and then some before getting picked up by a mini-bus, which later took us to the tour bus that took us on the tour. Once we were on the tour bus, everything went well. We saw a lot in a day. The audio guide was great! Black beach was amazing. South coast is a must-do for a visit to Iceland

What a beautiful day this was. Stopped for plenty of time at all the sights, even made an extra stop since we had the time and weather was good. Also stopped to try to see the northern lights, no success but the effort was appreciated.

While 11 hours seemed daunting, the day was full of adventure. I loved the tablet with the narration as gps tracked our location and would automatically narrate what we were seeing. I enjoyed our stops and felt that this trip was more interesting than the golden circle. A couple of comments: I think the trip would be daunting for anyone with mobility issues. There were places that could have caused injury if one wasn't careful.

This tour was great! The beach was just so beautiful and the glacier was amazing, worth the extra walk to see it up close. The waterfalls were wonderful as well.

Great day! Our tour guide was happy and helpful and the sights we got to visit were amazing. I would recommend doing a tour of the south coast if you are visiting Iceland!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

This tour was very informative. There are about 80 plus people on the bus with you so if you prefer a smaller group don't book this tour. We enjoyed the tour and it is less expensive than a small group tour. All the sights were amazing and the tour guide was very nice!
