Iceland South Coast Tour with Glacier Walk by Minibus

Iceland is famous for its majestic glaciers and impressive waterfalls. Therefore this Iceland South coast tour includes it all! You will not only visit two breathtaking waterfalls but will also walk on a glacier. This day tour from Reykjavik takes place in a minibus. It is great value and includes some unique sights. Where else can you stand on 700 years old glacier ice and wander along a beautiful beach the same day?

You get picked up from your guide in the morning and you will travel through the South Iceland farming lands. The tour takes place in a minibus. First of all you will visit the breathtaking waterfall Seljalandsfoss. This waterfall is unique as the shape of the cliff over which it falls allows visitors to walk behind the falls. While being behind the falls, enjoy the special perspective to look out on South Iceland´s beautiful landscape through the clear, misty water.

When in Iceland, it is simply a must to get up close to the massive glaciers. Therefore the next highlight for today is a glacier walk on Sólheimajökull glacier. This glacier is a part of Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland‘s fourth largest glacier that covers the infamous volcano Katla. You will spend approximately one hour on the glacier and the walk/hike is easy.

After the glacier hike, you head out to the black sand beach of Reynisfjara with its famous basalt columns. There, you will also see the Reynisdrangar basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea, which Icelandic legends say are trolls turned into rock by the rising sun. In addition, on your way back to Reykjavik you will also stop at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall.

This guided South coast tour is operated by one of our reliable partners.

We also offer a “standard” Iceland South coast tour without a glacier walk included. You find more details about this tour here.
