Iceland’s south coast is known for its atmospheric landscapes, from towering glaciers to black-sand beaches, but ticking them all off in one day can be difficult. Explore this often-overlooked coastline on a tour of the most impressive sights, including the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss and the Sólheimajökull glacier. Travel between dispersed sights with ease and save time finding a meeting point with included hotel pickup and drop-off.

Located within the beautiful Fjallabak Nature Reserve, Landmannalaugar boasts some of Iceland’s most popular hiking trails—but the region’s remoteness and rugged terrain makes access challenging. During this independent tour, reach the head of your hiking trail with ease from downtown Reykjavik and enjoy a day in the Icelandic wilderness. Choose from a range of different routes, with time for a well-earned soak in the geothermal pools at the end.

A good starting point for exploring Iceland from Reykjavík in a day. Maria the guide was definitely value added; she brings personality, local knowledge and opportunities - hot dogs and horse candies; you’ve got to go to know.
