This Summer South Coast Tour takes you on an amazing adventure. If there would be 1 tour to show you the true beauty of Icelandic nature – it would be this one. We will make it a day to remember.
Hellisheiði – drive on top of an active volcano – Hengill
After free pick up, we will drive on road no 1 toward the south of Iceland. Since the moment we leave Reykjavik behind, you will be greeted with wild lava landscapes. Literally, the city ends, wilderness begins. Your noses will be glued to the window looking at the amazing lunar scenes. We will be passing through an active volcano Hengill, where Hellisheiði Power Station is located. The whole area is spitting columns of steam into the air. You can definitely tell something is going on under this mountain and being an eyewitness to this untamed force of nature would be a great memory for you!
Urriðafoss is a waterfall located in the river Þjórsá in southwest Iceland.
The Fossafélagið Títan company was given permission in 1927 to build a power plant in Urriðafoss in connection with a railway to Reykjavík from the waterfall. It did not happen but now Landsvirkjun is planning to build hydropower stations on the lower part of Þjórsár river, at Urriðafoss and Núpur.
After Hveragerði we will drive through Selfoss, Hella and Hvolsvöllur to get to the famously spectacular Seljalandasfoss. This breathtaking waterfall will leave your jaw dropped. You have definitely seen pictures of Seljalandasfoss but nothing beats the experience of getting a little wet when walking behind the falling water!
Shortly after visiting Seljalandasfoss we will make a stop near another Icelandic gem – The Skógafoss. This waterfall is a completely different beast! A huge amount of water is dropping down with tremendous force forming an everpresent water mist that creates beautiful rainbows. It feels like you can almost touch them.
(Depending on road and weather conditions)
Famous “peninsula” with a hole in it. A stunning location where you can admire the awe-inspiring view over Reynisfjara. You can also meet puffins up close, as they have many nests in the area. Please note that Dyrhoalesy might be close between 15th of May and 25th of June for nesting period.
(Depending on road and weather conditions)
Beautiful glacier, that you can touch! When we stop here you will have a chance to walk up to the glacier and touch the ancient ice. Glacier Lagoon is surrounded by mountains covered with moss and black sand stretching far into the distance. Even the road leading to this secluded location is breathtaking!
We will make another stop in this charming little town. It has plenty to offer. First of all: FOOD! After all that excitement, you probably got hungry! We will stop at a restaurant here where you can buy food and gifts. We will also visit the famous black beach in Vík and if we are lucky, we can encounter some puffins on the cliffs.
Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach
Oh my, oh my… This is certainly one of the brightest highlights of this tour. Named one of the top 10 beaches in the whole world by National Geographic, this spectacular location will leave you speechless. Basalt stacks, roaring waves and stunning scenery! But be careful not to come to close to the waves as the can be extremely dangerous!
