All about the trip
Follow the North Atlantic coastline from Reykjavík into the volcanic and glacier-covered wonderland that is Iceland´s south coast. Walk behind the thundering veil of water at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, take in the incredible views from the top of Skógar Waterfall, stand on the world-famous black sand beach at Reynisfjara and visit the charming coastal village of Vík.
Let’s board our all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets, you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, available in 10 languages. So, if you wish to know interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit on the tour in a language that you are likely to be comfortable with, that is very possible. On board, you will also find a USB charger and free WiFi. If you have any questions during the tour or about our small country, you can ask the host who will happily assist you.
The tour starts with a drive through lava fields, right by the actively volcanic Hengill mountain and then down to the rich coastline farmland. On clear days you will see Hekla Volcano and in the distance, the glacier-capped Eyjafjallajökull Volcano will rise majestically above the coastal mountains at its base. Just a few kilometers off the coastline and easily visible are the volcanic Westman Islands, an archipelago of around 15 small islands, one of which is inhabited.
Our first stop is at Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, which is every photographer’s dream. The powerful Atlantic waves crashing on the black sands, the jagged basalt sea stacks and the huge basalt-column cave are a sight to simply take your breath away.
After being amazed by the power of the sea in Reynisfjara Beach we will head on to Vík. The village of Vík is the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the main ring road around the island. Despite its small size (291 inhabitants), it is the largest settlement for 70 km.
On our way back to Reykjavík, we stop by the powerful Skógafoss Waterfall where a short walk up a flight of steps will reveal one of Iceland´s most scenic views that include glaciers, volcanoes and black sandy beaches. We then stop at the 60-metre high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, famous for the hidden pathway behind and around it.What Wikipedia Says Watch on Youtube
