Waterfalls, Glaciers and Black Sand Beaches
South Coast Tour from Reykjavik is a popular and beautiful full day tour through a scenic landscape of waterfalls, glaciers, black sand beaches and cozy villages. We travel the south coast of Iceland with its black beaches, picturesque waterfalls and magnificent glaciers. On our way we witness the many sides of Icelandic nature and culture. Skógafoss Waterfall, Reynisfjara Beach and Sólaheimasandur Glacier are among highlights. We also visit the lovely town of Vik. Farms, small villages, horses grazing amidst Glaciers, active geothermal areas, black sand deserts and terrific cliffs will capture your eye and provide endless photo opportunities.
There are four different versions available of the south coast tour. The first version is the Sightseeing South Coast, a relaxing day tour spent basking in Iceland’s picturesque nature. The second version is a South Coast & Glacier Walk. It starts as a Sightseeing South Coast, but upon arrival to Sólheimajökull Glacier you will get on an adventurous Glacier Walk on the beautiful glacier. The Third version is a South Coast & Snowmobiling. Our regular South Coast sightseeing tour with a 2 hour exiting Snowmobiling adventure at Sólheimajökull Glacier. And the final version is a South Coast & Quad Bike tour, where you will drive a ATV on Sólheimasandur desert and among other places visit the plane wreck. Those opting for Glacier Walk, Quad Bike and Snowmobiling will not visit Vík, Reynisfjara Beach and Dyrhólaey, they will also miss the lunch stop, but lunch is available at the location of the activities. It is easy for groups to split up in to these versions, because we travel in the same vehicle and you meet up for the drive back to Reykjavik after the Glacier hike or the snowmobile adventure.
