South Coast Tour: Glaciers and Waterfalls

34 reviews | 344 travellers
The views during the tour are impressive, our guide gave us a lot of information about Iceland, which we found really surprising. The tour is 100% recommended, it takes many hours, but it is worth getting to the lake and seeing the icebergs of the glacier! Many thanks to our guide who made us a long trip, an experience of culture to remember.

South Coast Tour

The tour leaves Reykjavík early in the morning, crossing the volcanic plains which separate the coast and the mountains of the interior.

First stop is the Seljalandsfoss waterfall: a spectacular sight, with sheets of water falling over a mountain cave. Here you can enter into the grotto and admire the Icelandic flatlands through the waterfall itself.

The tour then continues to the Skógafoss waterfall, more than 30 metres tall. Then, having toured the area we'll stop to eat lunch (not included) and make the most of this beautiful landscape. On sunny days, you can even see the rainbows coming from the vapour of the falling water.

Fueled up and ready to go, well make our way to the Vatnajökull glacier, where we'll discover the majestic landscape of its glacial lake.

Then we'll head to an even more impressive sight, arriving at the Jökulsárlón glacier. This glacier ends in a giant lake, populated by floating icebergs, and here you'll have free time to wander around the lake and explore the beaches of volcanic sand, and their residents, seals and local birds.

The tour then heads back to Reykjavík, arriving around 10 pm.

Important Information

Meet Points

When making your reservation you'll see a list including the majority of the hotels in Reykjavik. Next to the name of your hotel, you will find the nearest meet point. As the majority of the streets in the centre are not accessible by bus, you will need to make your way to a nearby location, indicated as a "bus stop" and with a number.

For example, if you choose "20:30 - 1919 Hotel Radisson BLU (Please stand by for pick up at bus stop no 4 - Tryggvagata))" you should be ready at 8:30 pm at bus stop 4 (Tryggvagata). You'll find details about the location of the stop in the reservation confirmation.
