If you want to see the true Iceland, the south coast of Iceland is the place to be. We stop at two waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss and then we take a look at the amazing glacier Sólheimajökull. We also go to the wonderful Reynisfjara, with black sand beaches where we even might see some puffins if we are lucky. We also take look at the amazing Eyjafjalla*%#% something – the eruption that put the worlds flight on hold.
We only do pickups from guesthouses and hotels in Reykjavík.
The pickup starts at 08:00. It might take up to 30 minutes, but be ready from 08:00 – we always try to be on time.
- Duration of this tour is about 10 hours.
- We will be back in Reykjavík around 18:00.
- We do have 4 main attraction stops. Seljalandsfoss (waterfall) – Skógafoss (waterfall) – Sólheimajökull (glacier) – Reynisfjara (black sand beach).
- It is good to take rain gear with you, when you walk behind the waterfall Seljalandsfoss then you will get wet.
- The walk toward the glacier Sólheimajökull is moderate, it’s good to bring good shoes with you. Hiking boots are note required.
- And the good mood ofcourse, that is really important.

All our tours starts in the capital city which is the heart of Iceland´s cultural, economic and political activity. The first permanent settlements in Iceland is believed to have been established at Reykjavík around year 870. Steam from hot springs in the region inspired Reykjavík´s name, which you can translate to Smoky Bay.
Did you know that Reykjavík is the world´s northernmost capital of a sovereign state?
Have you ever walk behind a waterfall? You can do that at Seljalandsfoss which has a drop of 60 m (197 f) and is a part of the Seljalandriver which has it´s origin in the famous Volcano Eyjafjalla%#$%something.
Did you know that Seljalandsfoss was a waypoint during the first leg of Amazing Race 6?
One of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25m (82 f) and a drop of 60m (200f). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow which is normally visible on sunny days. You can walk up a path and see it from above.
Did you know that according to a legend one of the first viking buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall?close
Standing so close to Sólheimajökull is just like being in a Tolkien movie. You can feel the energy and the power from the glacier which is a part of the great Mýrdalsjökull, fourth largest glacier in Iceland.
Did you know that last 20 years Sólheimajökull has been shrinking around 50 meters every year?
The landscape at Reynisfjara is something you don´t see every day. The black sandbeach, rocks, cliffs, and the pure ocean is hard to describe in words. Our lunchbreak is over there and if we are lucky we might see puffins. Be careful the waves can be unpredictable and dangerous.
Did you know that two trolls tried to drag a ship to land but were tuned into stones when sun came up. That is Reynisdrangar stacks that you can see from the beach?
