South Coast of Iceland - Private Day Tour from Reykjavik
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Seljalandsfoss, Hella Iceland
Seljalandsfoss waterfall is a supremely graceful waterfall located in the South Coast of Iceland. This spectacular natural wonder drops around 60 meters into the otherwise tranquil pool below and a hidden path leads you behind the waterfall so you can view the fall from a complete 360° angle.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Gljufrabui Waterfalls, Pjoovegur Hamragarðar farm along the road, east of Markarfljót., Skogar 861 Iceland
Gljúfrabúi is an exquisite waterfall hidden inside a gorge only about 150 meters away from the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall “the one you can walk behind”. A visit isn’t complete without a combination of the two beauties.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Skogafoss, Skogar Iceland
Skógafoss (Skogafoss waterfall) is one of the largest and most elegant waterfalls in Iceland, it has a width of 25 meters and the cascade drops 60 meters. A waterfall of this size generates a lot of spray which often creates a single or double rainbow on sunny days, adding to the charm of Skogafoss Waterfall.
Duration: 45 minutes
Stop At: Dyrholaey, Vik Iceland
Dyrholaey “Door Hill Island” or the Arch with the Hole is an incredible promontory on the South Coast in Iceland. With a stunning and historical lighthouse and stunning views over the black beaches and surrounding glaciers, this is a must do on the Ring Road in Iceland.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Reynisfjara Beach, Route 215, Vik Iceland
Reynisfjara Beach is the most famous black sand beach on the South Coast of Iceland. Its beautiful black sand, powerful waves, and the nearby Reynisdrangar sea stacks make Reynisfjara a truly unique place to visit.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Solheimajokull Glacier, Vik Iceland
Solheimajokull glacier has a wealth of dramatic ice formations including crevasses, rugged ridges and sinkholes. Sólheimajökull is a glacier tongue or outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, the 4th largest glacier in Iceland, which has the mighty and feared Katla Volcano lurking ominously beneath its ice cap.

Highly recommend!! Our guide Sergei was above any expectation. Extremely attentive and knowledgeable!!
This tour was the highlight of our trip and the first thing I tell people about when they ask about our visit to Iceland! Denis, our tour guide was amazing he's friendly, knowledgeable, a great photographer and goes above and beyond. On the tour, we saw beautiful waterfalls, picture perfect churches, hiked to a glacier, drove to the top of a mountain to see Dyrhólaey, visited a black sand beach, and saw the most amazing views while driving. At each stop, Denis offered to take pictures of us we didn't even have to ask and had us stand in certain locations so that we could get the best shot. Not only did we see amazing sights, we learned so much about Iceland and it's history and of course Denis answered every question we had. He kept us entertained the entire day. On our way back to the hotel, Denis even made a pit stop to the local pharmacy as he remembered that my mom mentioned she wanted to pick up cold medicine earlier in the day and drove us around the town of Reykjavik to show us the best places to eat in town. I can't recommend this tour enough it's worth every penny!
This was a great experience. We booked a private tour because our flight arrived at 7:40 am. We didn't want to lose a day so we booked it from 10 am. Denis was our tour guide and he was phenomenal. He knew a lot about the country. Not only was he our tour guide but our photographer as well. He definitely went above and beyond. It was cold, raining which turned to snow and very windy. He improvised and made it one of the best tours. I would highly recommend it.
This was one of the most amazing experiences of our entire trip! Our private guide Denis went above and beyond in everything we did. From locations, to information, and from 'secret spots' to the best lunch around, he is what made our trip to fantastic!
Worth the money to have a private guide tour you around. They know the worthwhile stops along the way. We even got to pet some Islandic horses, and hike behind the great falls. Was the highlight of our week long stay.
A very exciting trip as the wind was howling in the aftermath of a huge storm, and many other tours were cancelled, but we wanted to go on this tour so Denis ignored the weather and took us anyway. We did the full itinerary, but will always remember walking behind the waterfall at Seljalandsfoss, and braving the wind and rain that hit our faces like bullets to stand on the rocks at Dyrhólaey-the three of us had to hold onto each other to stop being blown away! Denis knew all the best angles for photos and made my camera do things I never knew it could- so thanks Denis for some amazing photos. During our drive we learned a lot about Iceland and its history and also shared our favourite music.We also had our best meal in Iceland at the great restaurant he took us to for lunch. Thanks Denis for a super day in your Landcruiser- we very much enjoyed our day with you, and can only recommend the private tour as an extravagance well worth it for the freedom to explore at your own pace. Sandra and Peter.
If you are going to Iceland then this should be on your must do list. Four seniors were chauffeured by Denis, on September 6th, 2017, a fun-loving, gregarious, knowledgeable, young man. We saw waterfalls - even walking behind one to our great delight. One of our group uses a cane and Denis assured him he could also do the walk, and assisted him every time there was a difficult step or slippery area close to and behind the falls which was a spectacular treat for us all. We visited a glacier up close and had lunch nearby another waterfall at a delightful restaurant. We went to the black sand beach area to see some amazing formations along the coast. We give this agency the highest marks and can assure you that you will thoroughly enjoy the experience, the guide, the commentary about Iceland, the comfortable ride and the beautiful way to see what the southern coast looks like. You will be picked up and dropped off at your hotel. Imagine how interesting it is when it kept 4 seniors alert, happy, awake and attentive for about 10 hours having arrived in Iceland at 6:30 their time and 3:30 a.m. our body-clock times!! Enjoy!
