Your adventure day of the South Coast in Iceland begins with a pick up at your accommodation or a nearby meeting location. After being picked up in Reykjavik we will drive south on highway #1 and be introduced to incredible Iceland’s incredible untouched nature, geology, history and folklore.
Many of our guests most favourite stops on the way are at the effable famous waterfalls of the South Coast. They are the majestic Seljalandsfoss waterfall and Skogafoss waterfall. And you might even have the chance to see the infamous Eyjafjallajokull volcano, that stopped air traffic all over Europe when it erupted back in 2010.
Our next stop will be the magical Reynisfjara beach or the Black Sand beach as it is commonly called in English. Not only is the beach wonderfully beautiful … and the sand is black! But there are also very unique basaltic lava rock pillars that create the cliffs around the beach and that’s where puffins nest in during summer.
Another must visit stop on the Iceland South Coast is the beautiful coastal town of Vík. A lunch-break stop will be made either at the Reynisfjara beach or in the small town of Vík (depending on weather, timing and amount of people in the area). However, it is also of course allowed to bring light snacks to have during the trip.
After the breath-taking beauty of the Black Sand beach the tour will take you towards Solheimajokull glacier. You will be able to walk right up to the glacier and to touch it. If lucky, we might even find an ice-cave!
