Southern Iceland is dominated by powerful waterfalls and mighty glaciers, 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.
What to Expect
Following a morning pickup at your accommodation in Reykjavik, take a seat in your Jeep or minibus and spin out 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 to feel the might of the falls up close. You’ll have enough time to explore the sites on foot, and admire the majesty of these impressive natural wonders.

Next, head onward past the Solheimajokull glacier to the high, rocky promontory of Dyrhólaey—where spectacular coastal scenery awaits. 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 on hand to point out the basalt columns and sea stacks, gain insight into the region’s dramatic volcanic history.

When your time at Reynisfjara comes to an end, return to your Reykjavik hotel to conclude your tour.

Excellent service and guide

Sergei was a pleasure to work with. He set up the tour for us just as we requested, spent all of his time and energy making sure we were seeing what we wanted and were well-informed. Very good value and an honest person. Highly-recommended.

is it posible to combine the Golden Circle and South Coast tours. How much daylight will we get in early December. Does the South Coast trip have any alpine type windy roads across the passes?
