Reykjavik: Glacier Lagoon and South Coast Small Group Tour

1. Reykjavik: Glacier Lagoon and South Coast Small Group Tour

Tour Iceland's southern coast and see natural wonders, including Jökulsárlón and the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Learn about the area from your guide as you visit quaint villages and black sand beaches. Begin with a visit to the 60-meter-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, a must-see attraction for trips down the coast. Then, stop at the southernmost village of Iceland, Vík í Mýrdal before riding east. Watch the scenery transform from lush farmlands to darkened plains and black deserts. If the conditions allow, pay a visit to the stunning river canyon of Fjadrargljufur. Finally, arrive at Jökulsárlón, and be struck by its ethereal ambiance and glittering icebergs. Keep an eye out for curious seals and dive-bombing Arctic Skuas. Walk between the icebergs on the “Diamond” Beach, known for its black sand near the glacier lagoon. On the way back, stop to see an old turf church and note its striking resemblance to "hobbit holes." Learn more about this and the region from your guide.

Fantastic experience. I highly recommend this over the golden circle tour. Gummi is the best guide and driver out there and is super experienced. He is also very kind and told us many stories. He brought us to some locations which are not present on the map, away from the more touristy spots. Highly recommended!

Gummi is an excellent tour guide. This is the best tour I’ve ever had! I would definitely recommend and I’m looking forward to booking again with my friends and family the next time I’m in Iceland.

A wonderful day in the company of Gummi, the glaciers, it was a unique experience that amazes us. The hours of the bus pass quickly with the stops and the beauty of the landscape!! I recommend +++

Gummi is a great tour guide. My group had a lot of fun. The south of Iceland is stunning! I highly recommend this tour.

Tour guide was great and even made an extra stop for us to get some great photos
