Embark on an epic 14.5-hour journey from Reykjavik that presents the beautiful gems of Iceland's South Coast. This full-day excursion is a perfect fit for those eager to experience the phenomenal marvels of the South Coast in one enriching day.
Your journey begins with an early departure from Reykjavik. You'll greet your friendly tour guide and then board the bus, ready for the gorgeous natural treasures that lie ahead.
This tour welcomes travelers as young as one year old, but the long day could prove tiring for little ones, so consider this when planning your excursion.
The South Coast promises a day of remarkable landscapes, from farmland and mossy lava fields to awe-inspiring glaciers, volcanoes, waterfalls, and beaches.
This itinerary includes stops at the best South Coast attractions. The region's most famous waterfalls are Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, which you'll explore today.
At Seljalandsfoss waterfall, it feels like you've entered a mythical realm. A unique circular pathway allows you to meander behind the cascade for magical vistas from behind the water. Have your rain gear handy, as the waterfall's spray could leave you drenched!
Skogafoss, one of Iceland's most iconic waterfalls, is a breathtaking sight highlighting nature's raw power and beauty. It drops from a height of 197 feet (60 meters) and spans a width of 82 feet (25 meters).
Skogafoss produces a thunderous roar as it cascades over the cliff into the Skogar River. On sunny days, you can often spot a vivid rainbow created by the waterfall's mist, adding a magical touch to the impressive landscape.
Visiting the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is akin to stepping into a dreamscape. Floating icebergs, fresh from the retreating Breidamerkurjokull glacier, move through the lagoon in a silent ballet, creating an ever-changing landscape. The play of light on the ice presents shades from the purest white to the deepest blue, a fascinating spectacle.
Nearby at Diamond Beach, sparkling ice chunks shine like gems against the stark black sands. This surreal location provides a dreamlike setting for your photographs.
The day's final sightseeing stops are at Vik i Myrdal village and the Reynisfjara black-sand beach. Enjoy a delicious dinner at Vik and a leisurely walk along Reynisfjara, the globally renowned black-sand beach. The dramatic panorama of Reynisfjara, with the Reynisdrangar sea stacks and powerful waves crashing to the shore, is truly a sight to behold.
After spending an entire day soaking in the magnificent sights of the South Coast, you'll return to Reykjavik.
