What to expect
  • Begin your private tour with hotel pickup in Reyjavik, and travel by comfortable, spacious Chevrolet Suburban SUV to Iceland’s rugged south, famous for its lava plains, glacier-tipped volcanoes and black beaches. Bring a picnic (own expense), or ask your guide to stop at a restaurant they recommend for lunch (own expense) during your travels. On route, hear tales of the south's history and geology, and let your guide know if there’s anything you want to see more or less of. Your tour is private, so the itinerary can be adjusted around your personal interests. Journey over the Hellisheidi mountain pass, and view the Hengill volcano, home to one of the largest geothermal power plants in Iceland. Pay a visit to the spectacular Seljalandsfoss waterfall, set against the backcloth of the glacier-tipped Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Gaze at the volcano, and learn the story and secrets of its infamous eruption in 2010, when volcanic ash clouded the sky and caused major disruption to air traffic across Europe. Stop to see another of Iceland’s stunning waterfalls — Skógafoss. Soak up the sight and sound of the roaring cascade of water, and visit the Solheimajokull glacier on the Myrdalsjokull ice field. View the vast ice expanses as you hear how the glacier was formed, and how it is gradually retreating. Next, take a scenic drive along Iceland’s craggy southern coast. Take in the famous black beach at Vik, and then admire the sea cliffs at the black pebble beach at Reynisfjara, made up of striking basalt rock columns. Afterward, absorb more of south Iceland’s epic scenery as you make your way back to Reykjavik, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off in the early evening.

Amazing Day Tour of South Iceland
Had an excellent day tour! Weather was not the best but Jon did really make the most of it by making sure we prioritised the glaciers over waterfalls (which we wanted). Lunch stop recommendation was excellent and just no complaints except for the weather which we can’t control. Car was very comfortable and Jon was very nice and knowledgeable on all sorts of topics. Highly recommend using again!

5 ⭐️ - 3 day private tour South Iceland and Golden Circle
Jul 2021 • Family
Highly recommend Beyond Reykjavik Tours. Our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 teens and a tween) took a private 3 day tour of the Golden Circle and South Iceland with an overnight in Vik. We opted for the 15 passenger van and it’s was 100% worth the extra cost. The owner of BR, Jon, was so helpful in creating an itinerary that would best suit our family. He also advised us on clothing needs (bring full rain gear and waterproof hiking boots). We had multiple phone calls with him prior to our trip and he used our input to shape a FANTASTIC experience for our family. Our tour guide, Arni, was INCREDIBLE both with his knowledge of Iceland and his love of adventure. We saw the most amazing things on our 3 day tour that we absolutely would never have known about doing a self guided tour. Arni arranged a zip lining tour for us in VIk and took us to several off the beaten path places including a canyon and a working dairy for ice cream. Would highly recommend adding the zodiac tour in glacier lagoon. We had the most amazing time and the tour was worth every penny. Arni packed our days with fun and adventure showing us his beautiful country. We are so grateful to BR, Jon, and Arni for making our trip so spectacular.

Exceptional experience
We had a truly amazing experience with our exceptional tour guide, Siggi. We did the golden circle, south coast, and northern lights tours. Siggi was very friendly and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to accommodate us so that we could see everything during our trip. He’s the best tour guide around. I would highly recommend him.

Reality Checks Pay Off
Nov 2019
I was traveling with 11 friends for a 4-night visit to Iceland, only one of whom had been to Iceland before, as I had. As you can imagine, there was a lot of back and forth about which activities interested all 12 of us, and how we wanted to tackle those activities. Some of us wanted to venture all the way out to Diamond Beach as part of the South Coast tour, but after talking to BR Tours, it became clear that it was too ambitious for a single day tour, especially in the winter with limited daylight. Eight of us ended up on this private tour with Siggi as our driver and guide, which provided great flexibility. He made fantastic recommendations on where to stop and how best to maximize the use of the limited daylight. For example, after a long walk to the Solheimafijara Glacier, we had our lunch at the food truck by the parking lot rather than venturing further east to Vik. Siggi was very patient with us as were able to work in an additional stop/detour to visit the remains of the US Navy Douglas Super DC-3 that crashed in Sólheimasandur in 1973. Siggi also provided commentary as we passed various landmarks, which made the trip educational as well. It was a very long tour, but the van was comfortable, with more leg room than I've experienced in vans of the same size.

Wonderful time with brtours!
Aug 2019
We are two friends and geologists from the East and West US Coasts. We met in REK and enjoyed 3 wonderful days exploring the tectonic geology and oceanic plate rifting visible in southern Iceland. Siggi (first day) and Jon (next 2 days) were terrific guides, helping us track down the obscure spots we had found in advance in a geologic field guide. Both gentlemen were wonderful company, on time, helpful, patient and persistent in finding the locations we were seeking. And thoughtful: the comfy clean SUV was continually parked and orientated so the wind didn't fly open our doors as we got out. We felt like we had instant friends in Iceland. Brtours was highly recommended to us from friends in the States, and now we highly recommend them to you!

Amazing Guides - Exceptional country!
Jul 2018 • Family
We like the flexibility of private tours and having only 5 full days in Iceland, we opted to do 2 separate private day BR Tours. The first day was with Saevar along the South Coast of Iceland; the second trip was with Lovina through Thingvellir. I cannot begin to tell you what wonderful guides - and people - they both were. Their passion, pride and knowledge of Iceland - in addition to the beautiful and varied nature - made these trips so incredibly worthwhile! They truly gave us great insight of the people and the rich history of Iceland. If it were just us on our own, we would've missed so much. And Jon was wonderful in response time and in coordinating all this. TOTALLY RECOMMEND!

I'm so glad we booked with BR Tours
Jun 2018 • Family
When I first read the reviews I was a little worried because they were all 5 stars. I decided to book anyway and I am so glad I did. Our group (ages 14-61) loved it. Jon was very friendly and informative. He was flexible as to sites we wanted to see and showed us a part of the world we would not have otherwise seen. He encouraged us to do things we might not have done. My sister-in-law is afraid of heights but she climbed to the top of one of the waterfalls because he of him.
We also toured the Golden Circle with Jon. If you have the time I suggest you do that first and then visit the South Coast. You won't regret it.
