South Coast, Waterfalls & Black Sand Beach Private Tour
On this private guided tour, you will journey along the South Coast that features many of Iceland‘s most awe-inspiring destinations, including the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls and Reynisfjara volcanic beach to name but a few. Travelling across the lush farmlands that cut between the coast and the mountain ranges and glaciers of the interior highlands you‘ll enjoy breathtaking panoramic views, visit the main natural attractions and get to know the fascinating history of the region.
We begin by visiting one of Iceland's largest waterfalls, Skogafoss. The sheer power of it is truly a sight to see, as the curtain of water spills over the edge of an ancient seabed and falls 60 metres straight down.
We then move on to Reynisfjara black sand beach. This strikingly unique landscape is a favourite of filmmakers and photographers alike. We explore the volcanic pebble beach and learn a little about the fascinating history of the region from our expert guide. Some of the more impressive sights include the odd rock face of columnar basalt, looming cliffs, hidden caves and the magnificent Reynisdrangar sea stacks that rise from the ocean at the foot of Reynisfjall mountain.
If the weather cooperates, you will be able to see several well known volcanoes during the tour, including Hekla, Katla and the notorious Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
The last stop before returning to Reykjavik is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you'll get a chance to walk behind the falls.
