Our South Coast Private Tour promises an unforgettable adventure, showcasing the true beauty of Icelandic nature in a single, unforgettable day.
Our adventure starts by driving through the mountains that separate Reykjavik from the south. You’ll be treated to breathtaking views of lava fields, distant peaks, and geothermal plants releasing steam.
Our first stop is Hveragerði, a charming town where you can indulge in freshly brewed coffee (or tea) and savor local Icelandic delicacies at the local bakery. Within the same building, the Earthquake Museum offers an opportunity to experience the trembling ground, a creation born from a significant earthquake in 2008 that had its epicenter in this region. It’s a fantastic addition to your morning!
After Hveragerði, our journey takes us through Selfoss, Hella, and Hvolsvöllur, leading to the awe-inspiring Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall that will leave you in awe. While you may have seen pictures of Seljalandsfoss, nothing compares to the experience of getting slightly damp while walking behind the cascading water.
Amidst the beauty of our South Coast Private Tour, you’ll also have the chance to discover the hidden gem of Gljúfrabúi waterfall. Tucked away in a secluded canyon, Gljúfrabúi offers a unique and mystical experience, as you step inside the cavernous opening to witness the waterfall’s ethereal beauty, shrouded in mist and the echoes of falling water. It’s a captivating, secret world waiting to be explored.
Shortly after visiting Seljalandsfoss, we’ll pause near another Icelandic gem, Skógafoss. This waterfall is a marvel of nature, with a tremendous flow of water creating a constant mist that forms breathtaking rainbows. It feels like you can reach out and touch them.
On our South Coast Private Tour, you’ll also have the privilege of discovering the enchanting Kvernufoss waterfall. Tucked away from the beaten path, Kvernufoss provides an intimate and serene encounter with nature’s splendor. A short hike along a peaceful trail will lead you to this hidden gem, where you can marvel at the cascading water and relish the tranquility of the surroundings. You can even walk behind this waterfall! It’s a delightful escape into Iceland’s untouched beauty.
Our next stop is the charming town of Vík, offering plenty to explore. First and foremost, it’s time for sustenance! After all the excitement, you’ve probably worked up an appetite. We’ll visit a restaurant here, where you can purchase food and souvenirs. We’ll also venture to the famous black beach in Vík, and if we’re fortunate, we might spot some puffins perched on the cliffs.
Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach
One of the tour’s most remarkable highlights, Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach has been recognized as one of the world’s top 10 beaches by National Geographic. This spectacular location will leave you speechless with its basalt stacks, crashing waves, and breathtaking scenery. However, exercise caution, as the waves can be extremely treacherous.
