Southern Iceland Glaciers, Waterfalls and Beaches Day Trip from Reykjavik

831 reviews
Most visitors to Iceland concentrate on the Golden Circle, often missing out on the impressive south coast. This full-day tour from Reykjavik is a fuss-free way around the south coast’s attractions, and a convenient alternative to exploring independently. You visit must-sees such as Reynisfja beach and the Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls. Plus, enjoy background on the sights from a guide, and air-conditioned hotel and port transfers in Reykjavik.

Plenty of free parking. Toilet facilities 300isk. A van is there selling some hot food. If you want to walk on the glacier you will require equipment which can be hired from the hut & a guide will accompany you. We just walked along the valley to the head of the glacier. The track was very icy & the walk was about 0.5km. The glacier is spectacular, well worth the walk. It’s so colourful & you can hear it cracking away.

Water bubbling out of the mountain as you walk a path overlooking a body of water with mountainous terrain behind as you round a bend to see a wall of ice and a field of snow behind. Absolutely amazing sights. Take care to wear the right foot wear, it can be wet/slippery/muddy if it's rained.

Good place to see a glacier in action and to understand about them. Really brings home the effects of global warming! Worth a visit but nothing spectacular!

We hiked up to this glacier as it was a relatively quick and easy one at the end of the day, and it was worth the time and effort. We were not outfitted properly, so we only accessed into the glacier 3-5 minutes to checkout the scenery. Popped off a few photos and went on our way before dark.
