Itinerary

Our South Coast Bus Tour From Reykjavík starts with our fast and efficient pickup service. We can collect you from one of multiple city center locations. Once this is down, we join the famous Route 1 highway and journey east of the city along the idyllic southern coastline.

Our guides will enlighten and entertain you along the way. Your first stop of the day is to Skógafoss waterfall, an immense and powerful waterfall fed by the river Skógá river. If you are feeling energetic you can climb the 370 steps to the top to get a a bird´s eye view and another perspective. It is just as impressive from the ground and you can fells the mist and spray from the waterfall from a distance.

After a short stop in the little town of Vík, our next stop is to Reynisfjara beach, the wild north Atlantic waves crashing on the black beach and shadowed by the majestic basalt cliff columns. According to local folklore, these basalt columns are the remains of trolls who ventured out one night too close to the dawn and were frozen by the rays of the rising sun. This beach is the most famous of its kind in Iceland and perhaps the world. It derives its black hue from ancient volcanic eruptions when molten lava from Katla collided with sea water. The lava cooled and broke into sand instantaneously.

We continue on to Sólheimajökull, a glacier tongue of the larger Mýdalsjökull. We will take a short walk to the glacier where you can see the effects that the global warming has had on the ice here. The glacier has retreated hundreds of meters in the past decade leaving behind a glacier lagoon in its wake. If conditions allow, your guide will get you up close and personal with the glacier and you will be able to touch this impressive but retreating glacier.

Our final stop of the day will be at the renowned Seljalandafoss waterfall. This is the perfect photo opportunity especially if you take the trail that leads behind the waterfall. Just beware that this can be a wet experience so we recommend that you wear moisture wicking or resistant clothing.

Sky Lagoon

Sky Lagoon is Iceland´s newest hot-spring bathing lagoon. Closer to the city and less crowded than the Blue Lagoon, your stop here is the perfect opportunity to unwind and relax after your long day on Iceland´s wild and windy southern coast. This immersive cross between a swimming pool and thermal spa rests on a small cliff overlooking a bay creating an infinity pool effect. Choose between packages and tailor your visit to your own needs.
