South Coast of Iceland - Private Day Tour from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Powerful waterfalls and mighty glaciers dominate southern Iceland, but covering the distances needed to reach them can be a challenge. On this full-day tour, take the Hellisheidi mountain pass by Jeep or minibus to Skogafoss waterfall, coastal Dyrhólaey, and the black-sand beach of Reynisfjara. With your private guide at the wheel and round-trip travel from Reykjavik included, you’re free to relax and soak up the sites in comfort.
  • Explore Iceland’s south coast by Jeep or minibus with your private guide
  • Visit remote attractions: Dyrhólaey coastline and Skogafoss waterfall
  • Sweeping views over Iceland’s soaring cliffs and black-sand beaches 
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from your Reykjavik hotel
What to Expect
Your tour starts with morning pickup at your Reykjavik hotel in your Jeep or minibus and a drive along the Hellisheidi mountain pass. Enjoy sweeping views over the geysers, lava fields, and volcanos, and listen as your private driver and guide sheds light on the region’s geothermal activities. First, traverse the lowlands to the Skogafoss and Séljalandsfoss waterfalls, and stand behind Séljalandsfoss’ cascading waters. You have time to explore on foot. Next, head past Solheimajokull glacier to the high, rocky promontory of Dyrhólaey. Here, watch the Atlantic waves washing over the black sands below and gaze across the Mýrdalur valley range. Continue on to the shoreline at Reynisfjara—one of the finest black-sand beaches in Iceland—and stop for a coastal walk with your private guide. When your time at Reynisfjara comes to an end, you are dropped at your Reykjavik hotel to conclude your tour.
