Why I think you will love this tour

If you have only 1 day to go sight-seeing, take this tour. With a wide range of sights to see on the whole South coast, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

From waterfalls to black sand beaches, from glaciers to rock formations - you will get to see it all on this tour.

With having this as a private experience, you will also get the possibility of adding stops that peak your interest which are not included on the scheduled tours.

So grab your camera, your warm clothes and your smiles and get ready for an incredible day of wonders!

A fabulous adventure in the south of Iceland

We enjoyed a fabulous day exploring all the delights of the south part of Iceland. From fabulous waterfalls, snow covered glaciers and the spectacular black beaches. Our guide Tom (from Poland) was amazing, a mind of information and extremely helpful. I have no hesitation to recommend this trip and the company.

Amazing Tour of Iceland’s South Coast

Such an incredible excursion to the south coast of Iceland’s amazing landscapes! Our wonderful tour guide Tom led us through the different spots and shared with us the history of Iceland, it’s natural beauty, and it’s glacial formations that are unlike anything else. On top of everything- he did an excellent job driving, and navigating our group safely to each location on what was a rather blustery day. I would recommend the tour to anyone wishing to see glaciers or wanting to learn more about Iceland’s landscape in general! Absolutely wonderful!
