From Reykjavik: South Coast - Small Group

1. From Reykjavik: South Coast - Small Group

You will be picked up from Reykjavik in the morning by your friendly, experienced guide. From here you will start your adventure as a small group of guests traveling in the minibus, guaranteeing that your experience will be both comfortable and personal. One of your first stops will be at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. This falls, which are over 60 meters tall, tumble from a cliff that curves inwards. This means when there is no ice on the ground, you are able to walk behind it, allowing for some excellent photograph opportunities. Skogafoss Waterfall is next on your list. Though as tall as Seljalandsfoss, it is many times wider and much more powerful. The scale of it is incredibly impressive, especially considering the amount of spray rising as the water smashes against the rocks below. Whilst here, you will be free to walk as close to the waterfall as you dare. If the weather is clear, you’ll even be able to see Eyjafjallajokull, the famous glacier and volcano that erupted back in 2010. You will then travel to Solheimajokull. This fascinating glacier tongue stretches from the greater ice cap Myrdalsjokull, which covers the volcano Katla, with eruptions even bigger than Eyjafjallajokull's. Afterwards you will travel to the Reynisfjara black sand beach. This stretch of coastline is renowned for its beauty, eeriness, and dramatic geology. It is another very photogenic place containing many hexagonal basalt columns, and throughout summer, you may spot puffins up on the cliffs. The furthest stop on this tour is Vik, the southernmost village of Iceland. When you walk down the beach, you will be amazed by the sea stacks. Legend has it that the stack is in fact made up of the frozen figures of trolls who were turned to stone while playing in the sea. With all these features packed into a single day, you will return to your minibus and be whisked back to Reykjavík.

Reykjavik: Private Golden Circle and South Coast Tour

2. Reykjavik: Private Golden Circle and South Coast Tour

You will start your premium Golden Circle and south coast tour by driving along the beautiful Nesjavallaleid scenic route with your jeep. This road winds through mountains and volcano craters, offering great views of Thingavallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake. The first stop of the tour is the Thingvellir National Park, which is famous for being the site of the first parliament both in Iceland and the world. You will then continue to the famous Geysir hot spring area. Geysir erupts every 8-10 minutes, and you can walk around the area and take pictures of the hot springs before we head to Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, another unmissable place to see in Iceland. Your journey then continues towards Fludir, stopping at Faxi Waterfall first and then reaching the Secret Lagoon (only during the months of April - September). This beautiful natural hot pool is one of the oldest in Iceland and is definitely a gem you should not miss. After a relaxing bath in the Secret Lagoon (optional and at your own expense), you will continue towards the South Coast. As you drive south, you will get closer to one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes, Hekla. In the middle ages, Hekla was known as the “gateway to hell”. You will have a beautiful view of the volcano as you drive towards the Lava Centre, your next stop, where we can observe the monitoring of active volcanic systems, earthquake activity, and surface movements in Iceland. You will then make a quick lunch stop at Katla Restaurant, which is in the Lava Centre. Following lunch, you will continue to Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. Get your cameras ready and make sure you wear a raincoat, as you will have time to walk behind Seljalandsfoss, becoming drenched in the pristine cascading water. Following the waterfall, you will drive past Iceland’s most infamous volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano that froze air traffic in 2010 and made Iceland famous all over the world. Your next stop is Solheimajokull, a beautiful glacier tongue which is easy to walk to. Here you have a chance to walk close to the glacier and admire its blue, white, and black ice. You will finally continue to the Dirholey Cliffs and Reynisfjara, where you can admire black sand beaches, sea stacks, and basalt columns.

My first positive experience was that the tour was not cancelled however we were only 3, me and a couple, so it was like a private tour. Gummy the guide was extremly knowledgeable. The sights were beautiful and however we had rough weather conditions with a strong wind, Gummy went on with the program without any cancellation. Unfortunatelly, because of the strong wind my eyes inflamed and as the tour ended Gummy took me to a doctor who could gave me eye drops with antibiotics. He took me back to my hotel from the doctor as well. He was extremly helpfull and understandin in this situation. I could strongly recommend this tour and this company for everybody!

Gummi our guide was amazing! He was so experienced and told us the best stories and the history of the country, the nature and all the places we stopped at. This was one of the best guided trips I have every experienced and the places we went where incredible!
