Southern Iceland Glaciers, Waterfalls and Beaches Day Trip from Reykjavik

829 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.

We have visited the Vik black beach when stopping over in Vik. It is just like a ‘normal’ beach, but then the ‘sand’ is pitch-black. Not a place to spend time, but interesting to see

A lovely beach which is unlike any other, a bit difficult to park but apart from that it’s definitely worth the visit, however I’d recommend going to Vikurfjara instead as it’s much better and is the other side of black sand beach behind Vík.

the black send is just amazing. But it is best with glaciers on at the diamond beach. But still it would be a good stop if it is on your way.

We were supposed to be snowmobiling, but it was cancelled due to the weather, so had no choice but to join the rest of our tour group to this beach. Never have I been so grateful for a cancellation. What a place this is. Mother nature at her absolute finest. Loved it!!

Vik is amazing place. Beach and the view of the rocks is stunning. A long strip of black sand under the rocks and impressive cliffs overlooking Vík.The scenery is really beatiful and will give you some great photos. You can get a nice view of the whole by entering a small church on the hill. Absolutely beautiful picturesque beach.
