Private Day Trip to the Icelandic South Coast from Reykjavik: Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, and Reynisfjara Black Beach
Travel along Route 1 east of Reykjavík past the towns of Selfoss, Hella, and Hvölsvöllur. Make your first stop at Seljalandsfoss, possibly Iceland's most-photographed waterfall, which you can actually walk behind. Drive around 25 minutes to the next stop, past the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano which erupted in 2010 and brought air traffic to a standstill in a lot of European countries. At Skogafoss, take the time to soak up the views and photograph this charming waterfall, with luck you will see a rainbow appear in the spray.
Back in the vehicle, it is another 30 minutes to the black beach of Reynisfjara. From a safe distance — the sea is unpredictable and powerful here — enjoy the view from the cliffs near the ocean and the huge waves. See why filmmakers have used this beach in numerous kinds of films.
Take a break at the small peninsula of Dyrhólaey, known for its lighthouse, and afterward in Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland, noted for its quaint church perched high on a hill.
At around 7pm, arrive back at your hotel and say goodbye to your guide.

We had a great time touring the Icelandic South Coast with Godmundor. There were many sights to see along the way, and Godmundor's knowledge was most educational for us. It was a very relaxed, unrushed tour, and we had a wonderful time.
We did hace a very beautiful tour which was modified by our interests .Mr.Andres was fantastic as a tour guy and also as a friend to showed places including all the informations possible. Thank you for our good time
I cannot describe in words how the waterfalls made me feel. Andres our guide was very knowledgeable in both historical facts and the mystic. He fit in glacier walk for us and it was not in the itenerary. Loved it!
