South coast classic

Add to my   • Product ID: 15493

Travel along the shoreline of the North Atlantic all the way from Reykjavik to the south coast, an area filled with volcanoes, glaciers and black sand beaches.


Follow the coast line from Reykjavík into the volcanic and glacier covered areas of the south. Walk behind the veil of water at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Take in the incredible views from the top of Skógar Waterfall. Step onto the black sand beach at Reynisfjara and visit the charming village of Vík on board one of our new buses.

The tour starts with a drive through the lava fields and over the volcanoes in Hengill. Down to the farmland on the coast line. On clear days, you will see the Hekla Volcano. You may also see, in the distance, the glacier coated Eyjafjalljökull Volcano. A few kilometers off the coast line you can even see the Vestmannaeyjar Islands.

Our first stop is at Sólheimajökull Glacier, a photographers delight. We stop there on our way to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, another picturesque spot. The jagged basalt sea stacks and the huge basalt column cave are sights not soon forgotten.

Vík is our third stop, and also the southernmost village of Iceland. Enjoy the small town atmosphere at one of the most romantic towns of Iceland. Shop for local handwork or enjoy the beautiful houses under the calming sound of the sea.

After lunch at Vík we head to the powerful Skógafoss Waterfall. a short walk up a flight of stairs will reveal one of Iceland´s most scenic landscapes. Glaciers, volcanoes and black sand beaches.

We then stop at the 60 meter high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. Which is famous for the hidden pathway behind and around it.

We were absolutely blown away by it


Thank you Hermann and Dani(?) for the most amazing trip out today on your South Coast Classic tour, we were absolutely blown away by it! The comfortable coach was clean and had USB ports and WiFi as well as an audio tour on tablet computers, the additional commentary provided was Hermann was most informative. Everything ran like clock work, it was brilliant from beginning to end and will be a day out that we'll all remember for a very long time, especially Heidi and Oliver - thank you so much

What a fantastic day we had


We have just returned to our hotel after a day on the South Coast Classic tour. What a fantastic day we had. Thank you to our driver/guide Hafi (sorry if this is spelt wrong) for making the day so special.

Soaking wet but happy!


Took another tour today (South Coast) and once again it was truly amazing! Herman surprised us again and took us for a walk behind the Waterfall and inside a cave. Soaking wet but happy! Very well organized, just unnecessary stops for food (30' and 60' min) - I think people would appreciate more time at the sites (Glacier was only 40') versus gas stations, we can eat at home ;)
