    What to Expect
    Commence your tour with hotel pickup in Reykjavik at 7am, when you’ll board a climate-controlled vehicle destined for Iceland’s south shore. Following a scenic 2-hour journey over Hellisheiði lava plateau, you’ll arrive at the mighty Sólheimajökull Glacier: replete with ice caves, crevasses, and turquoise streams.

    Then, absorb the obsidian sands of Reynisfjara Beach, flanked by hundreds of black basalt columns reminiscent of Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway.

    From here, you’ll proceed to Vik — Iceland’s southernmost town — where you’ll visit Iceland’s only war memorial, the Víkurprjón wool factory, and Vik’s gorgeous red-roofed church.

    On the way back to Reykjavik, you’ll stop at the majestic Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls before hotel drop-off at around 5pm.

    This tour is a must do. The South Coast was in my view, the most scenic part of the country. This tour includes sights of volcanoes, waterfalls, glaciers, boat trip (additional cost but worth it), black stone beach, puffins and much more. Its a long day but the sightseeing is

    Tomas our guide from Poland was fantastic. He was very well informed and friendly and had a great sense of humor. The tour was so much fun. We saw the waterfalls and black sand beach and went to a glacier. Everything was incredibly gorgeous. Freezing cold but worth it.

    The excursion scenery itself is fantastic and great. We could not have asked for better sights. However, my husband and I booked this Small-Group Day trip where they crammed 20 people into a tiny bus. They should have only allowed for 15-16 max so people could sit comfortably.

    Both tour guides, Norris and Yannis were awesome! However, we had a little problem at Jokulsarlon boat tour with two people not having tickets for the boat ride and they claim they purchased it but both Arctic Adventure and the boat tour company has no records of it. So this
