Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide and group in central Reykjavik, board the climate-controlled coach, and embark on your tour of Iceland's southern coast.

Head for Vik, the southernmost village on the island of Iceland. Along the way, make stops at some of the country's most spectacular natural landmarks. At the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, take the unique opportunity to walk behind the cascading water and emerge on the other side of the falls. Take fantastic photos at the 196-foot (60-meter) Skógafoss waterfall, whose copious spray produces an almost permanent double rainbow. 

Along the way, visit the Solheimajokull glacier and listen to informative commentary from your local guide. At Vik, admire the charming village set below the towering cliffs, the black volcanic beaches and the impressive Reynisdrangar rock formations before heading back to Reykjavik.

This was a great tour, our guide was very informative and interesting. As it's quite a long day, a lot of driving involved, the sights we saw were amazing and I'm pleased I took this tour. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because at the waterfall where you can go up the stairs and close to the water I was only able to do one or the other due to the time given. It would have taken too long to up all those stairs with my 9 year old and then go right up to the bottom of the waterfall as well.

Tour was interesting, good guide who provided a lot of interesting information. I signed up for an English tour and ended up on a bilingual tour English and French, so had to listen to the French which was a bit annoying.

This was a big bus trip which is why I only gave it 4 stars. The South is probably the most beautiful part of the country and we enjoyed the black sand beaches, waterfalls and the scenery. I thought that the town of VIK was more than just an overpriced lunch stop and would have liked that explained better. Also, the tour was much longer because all participants were dropped off at their hotels individually. This added about an hour to a long trip.

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the waterfalls, the glacier, and the black sand beach, along with the little town of Vik. Everything was as expected, except - warning! - if you're older and not as agile as you used to be, be aware that Iceland in general has very little in the way of accommodation for the changing needs of seniors. This tour was no exception. It would have been a lot more fun if we'd been young and strong. Then again, what wouldn't?

Tour was good to see the sights, even on a rainy day. The large number of passengers on the coach made the tour slow and there were so many people at each of the stops it was hard to see everything. Overall, a good way to see a lot of the country in one day and show what to do next trip.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed much dedication having spoken both English and German on the coach. Trip itself was great - stopped at some stunning locations! First stop was about 1h30m from the bus terminal so worth having a toilet stop beforehand as there was not one available on the coach I felt we stopped enough times for this to not be a problem Would highly recommend this trip if you have already done the Golden Circle Tour, in particular if you are into photography like we are. As with anywhere in Iceland, be prepared for changing weather conditions through the day. I'd recommend bringing food with you if possible as it saves a fair bit of time waiting in queues at the stops. Stops were: Selfoss Hvolsvollur Seljalandsfoss Eyjafjallajokull Sólheimajökull Vik Reynisfjara Skogar Museum Skogafoss
