Your family-friendly Iceland tour begins in the morning when you board a comfortable bus in central Reykjavik. Then it's time to head toward one of Iceland's most famous sightseeing regions, the glorious South Coast.
As you journey to the South Coast, the cityscape gradually gives way to Iceland's otherworldly landscapes. Look out the window and marvel at the rolling countryside, rugged mountain peaks, and sprawling coastlines, a taste of what's to come.
The day's first stop is the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where pristine water plummets 197 feet (60 meters) from ancient sea cliffs into a serene pool below. The highlight here is the path leading behind the curtain of water, offering a unique perspective.
Next, you'll visit the Skogafoss waterfall, one of Iceland's largest and most picturesque waterfalls. Its raw power is awe-inspiring, with a width of 82 feet (25 meters) and a drop of 197 feet (60 meters).
Rainbows frequently form as sunlight filters through the mist, enhancing the scenic view. Summer travelers can climb the steps up the hill for a bird's eye view of the cascading water.
Then your driver will take you to the Solheimajokull glacier, a rugged, raw terrain of ancient ice, deep crevasses, and water cauldrons. You can walk from the parking lot to the glacier's edge, past the glacial lagoon at its base. It's a beautiful setting with blue and white icebergs streaked with black, yet a reminder of how fast the glacier retreats.
The next stop is the charming coastal village of Vik, the southernmost settlement on mainland Iceland. You'll have a chance to stroll through this quaint village with its picturesque red-roofed church and local shops selling traditional Icelandic woolen goods.
The day's final sightseeing stop is the spectacular Reynisfjara black-sand beach. Known for its striking basalt sea stacks and powerful waves crashing against the shore, Reynisfjara is an enchanting example of Iceland's unique coastal geography. The dark sand, thunderous ocean, and towering cliffs make for an unforgettable sight.
As your driver takes you back to Reykjavik, it's a chance to reflect on a day filled with diverse natural wonders. You'll arrive back in the city in the evening, marking the end of a memorable tour of Iceland's South Coast.
