What To Expect

Begin your tour with pick-up from your central Reykjavik hotel, meet your driver and settle into your private vehicle for the scenic journey south. Keep your camera trained on the road as you pass the dramatic landscapes of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier and jump out to admire the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Stand in awe before the 60-meter-high cascade, then enjoy a unique viewpoint as you walk right behind the falls.

Learn more about the region’s untamed landscapes and volcanoes at the LAVA Center and hear about the notorious 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano with a visit to the Eyjafjallajökull visitor center. Then continue to another magnificent waterfall – Skógarfoss.

After capturing photos of the mighty falls, get a taste of traditional Icelandic life with a visit to the Folk Museum at Skógar, where highlights include the grass-roofed farmhouses and a huge collection of handicrafts. After passing the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, your final stop is in Vik, Iceland’s southernmost village. Explore the town, then pay a visit to Reynisfjara, where you can stroll the unusual black sand beaches and admire the natural sea arch of Dyrhólaey.

After an epic full-day adventure, sit back and enjoy the return journey to Reykjavik, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

We booked the Golden Circle and the South Coast day Tours , both were very interesting, and gave us a good overview of Iceland. Our tour guides were very friendly and super knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend it.

First off our driver/guide Anna was so incredibly great! I fell in the parking lot not going behind the falls at Seljalandsfoss (our second stop of the day) sustaining a cut by my eye. She was so good about helping me and got me to Vik for stitches when the cut continued to bleed. I cannot say enough complimenting this wonderful woman! Plus we did not miss a single stop and got through the entire day although by the end of the day I was only seeing out of one eye due to the swelling and black eye I developed. Thank you to Anna for being so helpful plus sharing so much information with us about the South coast. You are a true gem! Do not hesitate to take this tour. It’s a bit pricey but I feel it was money well spent after all we got to see that day. The views at all of the sites were so beautiful that words cannot fully give credit to all we saw. We added on the stop at the Lava Museum also well worth the money and time. Following our tour I felt I had a very good understanding of volcanoes and the entire South coast. We could have toured even longer.
Excellent day all around!

What an amazing tour…. I’m an executive out of NY and am not the easiest of people to please… or says my assistant. This company was professional, amazing, informative, on time, accommodating and went the extra mile every chance they got to make me and my husband happy. We actually realized after booking that this one private company was who we booked for multiple trips and were extremely pleased when we figured it out. They answered questions, made stops we didn’t expect and even provided boots (wellies) one day when they thought we might get wet without us asking. I almost wish I could take them around the world with me because I was definitely spoiled. Erika & John Bolsch
