Nothing but praise for Anton and his company! Having never been on a tour before, my husband and I didn't know what to expect. But this exceeded our expectations on all accounts. Anton was very punctual, picking us up right on time. The minibus was perfect and well maintained. He was very knowledgeable, easy to talk with and had us laughing. He made it personable and tailored the trip to what we were interested in. He took us to some spots not on the tour since we had extra time. He truly loves his job and Iceland and it is contagious. We loved every minute of the tour with Anton and hopefully, we will be back to explore more areas. So glad I stumbled upon BTI.
If you're thinking of booking this company - don't hesitate, do it! They were everything I was hoping to get when I booked our tours in Iceland. Our guide, Tommi, was an Iceland native and was so passionate about his country and sharing it with us and I felt this made an enormous difference to our experience (compared with our other tour company we went with where we didn't have a passionate guide). The best thing about the tours with this company is that you don't just stick to the standard itinerary, they will tailor the tour to your group and the weather conditions to give you the fullest and best experience they can. They also look after you really well and they taught us so much about Iceland. Read on Tripadvisor
This Winter 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!
The first stop will be in Hveragerði. At the local bakery, you can get freshly brewed coffee (or tea) and some local Icelandic delicacies. In the same building, there is Earthquake Museum where you can experience the trembling ground yourself. It was built after a big earthquake in 2008 which had its epicenter here. A great addition to this lovely morning!
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.
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!
