See the stunning natural marvels of Iceland’s sensational South Coast

The South Coast is one of Iceland’s most picturesque and popular destinations.

You’ll be amazed by the views in all directions! Following Iceland’s famous Ring Road, gleaming glaciers feed countless waterfalls, tumbling from volcanoes and majestic mountains, and gorgeous green rock canyons wind their way to the sea.

When booking some of our tour packages of Iceland, you´ll have a chance to enjoy exploring Hveragerði – a town famous for its geothermally-heated greenhouses filled with flowers, tomatoes, and bananas!

And don’t forget Iceland’s famous volcanic black sand beaches, including Reynisfjara, recently picked by TripAdvisor as one of the best in the world!

South Iceland Region

Why do so many people choose our South Coast tours?

If you want to see some of Iceland’s greatest treasures in just one day, our South Coast tour is the perfect choice!
That’s because it’s easily reached from Reykjavík and offers a variety of spectacular sights, all packed into one region.

On our South Coast tours, you’ll explore a beautiful coastal plain fringed with volcanoes and waterfalls on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Fill your Instagram with the South Coast’s superstar sights, including two towering waterfalls (Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss). 

Thrill at the sight of glaciers like Sólheimajökull, one of the most accessible glaciers in the country, and enjoy an unforgettable stroll on its most iconic black sand beach at Reynisfjara.

WATERFALLS

There are more than ten thousand waterfalls in Iceland, fueled by crystal-clear meltwater from the dozens of glaciers that cover mountains and volcanoes inland.
You’ll see countless more cascades tumbling off the sides of Eyjafjallajökull as we explore the area on our South Coast tours.

And you’ll see a “secret waterfall” called Gljúfrabúi, hidden in a gorgeous rock canyon, and even more cascades when we visit Fjáðrárgljufur if you select our multi-day tour to Jökulsárlón.

GLACIERS

More than 10% of Iceland is covered by glaciers, and there are 269 “named” glaciers in the country.
These vast rivers of frozen ice have covered Iceland’s mountains and volcanoes for centuries, advancing and receding as the climate changes.
Sólheimajökull (Sun’s Home Glacier) is one of the most accessible glaciers in Iceland, part of the mighty Mýrdalsjökull ice cap and the Katla Global Geopark.
You’ll have the chance to take an unforgettable hike across its frozen maze of fascinating ice formations, crevasses, and ridges!

CANYONS

Fjaðrárgljúfur (the Feather River Canyon) is one of the most beautiful canyons in Iceland and one of the most accessible too!

It’s a surreal sight – a magnificent winding canyon carved out by a mighty glacial flood that rushed down the River Fjaðrá nine thousand years ago.

Another stunning river canyon can be seen at Gullfoss, where a thrilling two-tier waterfall thunders into a deep ravine. It’s part of the famous Golden Circle route and one of the highlights of the South Coast.
You’ll find more details about this iconic attraction here.

BLACK SAND BEACHES

National Geographic and TripAdvisor have named Reynisfjara one of the world’s finest beaches.

You’ll soon see why when you see this iconic black sand beach! Stretching as far as the eye can see, Reynisfjara’s jet-black sands lie between pounding Atlantic waves on one side and beautiful basalt columns hugging the cliffs on the other.

And the brooding sea stacks of the Reynisdrangar loom just offshore, looking like something from a film set!
Enjoy the mesmerizing views of Dyrhólaey from here, and check out a different perspective when we visit Vík, with its black sand dunes.

Some say there are over 10,000 waterfalls in Iceland, and you’ll see some of the most famous falls on our Golden Circle, South Coast, and Ring Road tours. There are hidden waterfalls, multi-tiered falls, widescreen cascades where rainbows dance on sunny days, and even waterfalls where you can walk behind the waters!

KERIÐ (GOLDEN CIRCLE)

Iceland is less than 20 million years old, created by underwater volcanoes rising up along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge with a pipeline of molten magma straight from the Earth’s burning core. Dozens of volcanoes dot the country, and many are still active, which means you can explore fascinating volcanic formations at different geological stages!

VATNAJÖKULL

Close to the Arctic Circle and just 300 miles wide, Iceland is the perfect place to explore glaciers and ice caps. These frozen blue wonders can be seen easily as you explore Iceland on our Ring Road tours. That’s because outlet glaciers and glacier tongues reach down from  Sólheimajökull on the South Coast and from Vatnajökull in the East right down to the coast, making it easy to get up close to these majestic sights. Centuries of snow and ice have created these incredible glaciers, but they are retreating now due to climate change. Don’t miss your chance to see these marvels while you can!

On our Golden Circle tours, you’ll see the “OG” of geysers everywhere at the Haukadalur Geothermal area. While Geysir has fallen silent recently, nearby Strokkur erupts in steam explosions and spray every few minutes, sending superheated water flying high into the sky. Geysir means “gush” in Icelandic, and that’s where the name comes from! If you book a package with stay in Hveragerði you can also admire smaller cousin of Strokkur that erupts every 15-20 minutes.

Fjaðrárgljúfur (Feather River Canyon) is a surreal sight – a marvelous sheer-walled river canyon covered in blankets of velvet-green moss. But there are more stunning canyons in Iceland, like Vatnsjfjörður, Kólugljúfur or Þingvellir just to name a few.

On our South Coast and Ring Road tours, you’ll also have a chance to see Arctic terns, kittiwakes, guillemots, and razorbills. Lake Mývatn in North Iceland attracts thousands of ducks each summer, making it a bird watcher’s paradise! Look out for the Barrow’s Goldeneye, Harlequin ducks, gyrfalcons, gannets, and ptarmigans! Our Westfjords and Snæfellsnes tours also include visits to bird-filled cliffs along the route.

Geysir

GEYSIR
GEYSIR
GEYSIR

Iceland’s fierce volcanic activity fuels gushing geysers all around the country, and the most famous hot spring is Geysir, one of the highlights of our Golden Circle tours. Geysir was the first erupting hot spring discovered by Europeans, and its name is the Icelandic word for “gush”, giving its name to all hot springs worldwide. Geysir is quiet these days, but Strokkur sends hot water and vapor high into the sky every few minutes! You won’t have to wait long to see it blow sky-high. So get your camera ready – this will be one of the best photo opportunities you’ll have in Iceland! 

Gullfoss Waterfall

Discover the glorious Gullfoss on our Golden Circle tours

GULLFOSS
GULLFOSS
GULLFOSS

One of the highlights of the famous Golden Circle route, Gullfoss is a thundering two-tier waterfall fueled by Langjökull, the “Long Glacier”, which you’ll see far inland if it’s a clear day. Tumbling more than thirty meters into a dramatic rock canyon, Gullfoss is one of the most thrilling waterfalls in the country, and you can see the falls from several viewing platforms. Watch out for rainbows on sunny days, and wear waterproofs – millions of gallons of water crashing over the cascade creates lots of spray!

Traditional Architecture

See the famous turf-roofed buildings!

TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURE

TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURE
TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURE

Traditional Icelandic architecture is characterized by its simplicity, functionality, and integration with the natural environment. During our tours you will be able to see couple of its examples. 

Eiriksstadir is a reconstructed Viking-era longhouse in Iceland, which provides a glimpse into the architectural style of the early settlers. Hlíðartúnshúsin (located in Borgarnes) is a collection of several turf houses that were first built more than a hundred years ago. You’ll see a sheep barn, a cowshed, and even a hut used to store potatoes!

Iceland is also famous for turf-roofed churches, such as the iconic Viðimýrarkirkja and Hofskirkja, showcasing the continuation of this architectural tradition into religious buildings.

Akureyri

AKUREYRI

AKUREYRI
AKUREYRI

Akureyri is the unofficial “second city” of Iceland, located in the far north about six hours from Reykjavik, nestling at the end of the longest fjord in the country.

Once a little 17th-century fishing village and trading station, Akureyri is now a bustling town. You’ll find funky cafés, restaurants, art galleries, design stores and a botanical garden to explore.

Even though it’s very close to the Arctic Circle, the 20,000 people who call Akureyri their home enjoy some of the country’s warmest and most stable weather.

As you walk the streets of Akureyri, make sure you take a look at the traffic lights. All the red lights are heart-shaped!

Sólheimajökull is a magnificent glacier located on the South Coast of Iceland. It is an outlet glacier that descends from the larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. Sólheimajökull is famous for its breathtaking ice formations, including deep crevasses, ice caves, and dramatic ice ridges. 

The glacial environment of Sólheimajökull provides a unique opportunity to witness the effects of climate change, as the glacier has been receding in recent years. This caused new Glacial Lagoon to appear on the map of Iceland, where huge chunks of ice slowly float on its surface.
