Private South Iceland Day Trip from Reykjavik
Your tour is fully-private, operated just for your party with your own private guide. Your tour includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel or apartment in Reykjavik, an English-speaking driver/guide, WiFi, water bottles and entrance fees. While lunch is not included in the tour, we can stop at a local restaurant or diner according to your preferences where you can purchase lunch. Make sure to bring warm clothes, good shoes (hiking shoes are ideal) and a camera.
Your tour begins by driving along highway 1 through Hveragerði and Selfoss towards the South Coast. First stop is at the base of the volcano with the 'unpronounceable' name - Eyjafjallajökull - that brought most of Europe's air traffic to a standstill in 2010 when it erupted and created a large ash cloud. Next you will visit a photogenic waterfall called Seljalandsfoss. From here your guide will take you to some other less-known waterfalls and caves depending on the season and weather conditions.
You will also visit the Skóagoss waterfall, another big and photogenic waterfall.
Next up you may visit a glacier called Sólheimajökull, where you can take a walk up to the glacier and also obtain help from a local tour guide to walk on the glacier if you wish.
Finally, to top off the day, you will end with a visit to some black sand beaches (Dyrhólaey) and if luck is on your side, you just might see some puffins.
In short, the south coast of Iceland is truly spectacular and not to be missed. There are so many places to see and visit, with an expert tour guide you will find the places and activities that fit you and your group the best.
When your tour concludes, you will be returned to your accommodation or preferred location.

Our private tour driver told us the path behind the waterfall was closed in Nov but you can go in the summer so we didn't walk to check. But later on, when he stop there again when asked for a bathroom break, we saw people walking behind the fall. Bit upset we miss the chance to walk behind the falls.
