Wow …totally awesome experience.

We booked a 2 hour buggy tour and can honestly say this was an amazing adventure.

Definitely worth the 2 hour drive from Reykjavik…one of our party had done this type of activity twice before but he said this was by far the best he had experience.

We were greeted with a quick briefing along with a delicious hot chocolate drink (coffee also available). We were given waterproof suits, boots and gloves along with balaclavas and helmets. If you have waterproof shoes of your own you can where them if you prefer.

We were a family of six and we drove the two person buggies through some amazing scenery, splashing through streams to a cave and back. The younger members of the family said the cave was stunning inside but very dark in places but definitely relished the experience.

Our guide was Magnus (Maggie) he was so helpful, friendly and highly knowledgeable of the area. We would highly recommend him to everyone.

On returning to base we were again given hot drinks and chocolate biscuits. The base camp has two toilets, showers and changing areas, although more are going to be added soon apparently.

Although we were wearing waterproof clothing we were wet through to the skin afterwards so I do advise a total change of clothes for afterwards as we did still get a little wet, but I can honestly say that I wasn’t cold at all.

We had a fabulous day with Erla. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a full walking day in Landmannalaugar together with some great extra sights on the way in and out. The day was deliberately long, and well paced, and we felt we had an amazing full experience. The vehicle used was very comfortable and Erla’s knowledge, humour and skill made the day perfect.

We had three amazing days in the highlands with Southcoast Adventure. Guðný is an amazing guide, we always felt safe during the hikes and she's a great driver as well. The communication with Sigga is also very good, we changed our tours flexibly depending on the weather conditions. Thanks for three unforgettable days!

We had an amazing day with Southcoast Adventure and visited Landmannalaugar. Our guide (Siggy) was outstanding - he was even a geologist and could therefore tell us all the different things about the volcanoes and more. It‘s definitely worth it and we would recommend it for sure!

Our family of five (three sons, 20, 20, 16) wanted to explore Iceland and the boys certainly hoped for fun adventure. We had an amazing trip and Southcoast Adventures really defined our trip as exciting, fun, and memorable. Sigga was a tremendous help in helping me plan our trip! We had informative guides that gave us great information about the land that we were exploring. Jon (his Icelandic name was super hard to pronounce, but he is their rock star) picked us up from the airport the first day at 7am, and we were off to see the Golden Circle. Jon was fun to spend the day with and authentically seemed to enjoy driving us to the amazing sites. It was Dec. 30 and definitely colder than the temperatures stated in Reykjavik. (There was a strong cold wind and it was cold! Definitely wear ski pants, ski shells, hats, mittens, etc.)
Stefan picked us up the next day and continued to be our guide for the next three days. Amazing! The boys especially loved Stefan who would sing and be his funny self while also driving the super jeep, bringing us dune buggying, and snowmobiling. The landscape was incredible even in January. The top of the glaciers where we snowmobiled through deep snow and had incredible views was a highlight.

Dear Ann Thank you so much for your your wonderful words towards us and thank you for giving you the time for sharing your experience with us here. Árni Þór is our rock star for sure :-) But Stefan is no less rock star, both very talented guitar players and singers... not just a excellent driver-guides... :-) I am agree with you about the highlights on the top of the glacier, the view is amazing. There is so much to do and see here in Iceland, also the summer time is incredible beautiful. Until next time... We look forward to meet you all again. Best regards from Sigga Fríða and all of our rock stars.

We took a private tour from Hotel Ranga out to Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach. We rented a car but decided it was too far to drive on our own there and back in one day so we booked a tour with Southcoast.

Our driver, Stefan, was fantastic! It was a 10 hour journey (including a stop for lunch) so it was nice to have a guide that was a great conversationalist and very knowledgeable about Iceland. He answered all of our questions about Iceland and stopped at a few places we never would have found on our own.

We had a gorgeous day and the pictures we got on Diamond Beach were out of this world. Would highly recommend this company and this guide, especially if you're interested in a private tour.

My family and I had a fantastic day out on the super jeep tour of Thorsmork - a highlight of our holiday in Iceland. Our guide was excellent - friendly, attentive and informative, and went out of his way to give us a great trip. The staff in the office were friendly and very helpful, especially when plans had to be changed due to the weather conditions. And the views were, of course, amazing. Highly recommended.

Thank you Stefan for a great day. We were unlucky with the weather unfortunately. Great local tour operator. Note that they have a new base so make sure you have the right pick up location, especially if you booked through a third party such as Guide to Iceland.
In hindsight, you can do this tour by yourself if you are able to get a ferry ticket and book the RIB yourself. If you have a car you can drive around the Island.

We did 2 trips with Southcoast Adventure - Katla Ice Cave and Wildcard Adventure.

Hokur and Villi were our guides & drivers during the Katla Ice Cave trip.
The trip was short but eventful and intense, the blizzard showed us how's the weather in the uninhabited part of Iceland. The guides drove us in 3 superjeeps from the village of Vik to the Katla Ice cave.
If you want to see the cave, you must go there in the next 2 years, because is shrinking and melting away. But it was a memorable trip, we made a lot of photos and videos.

Stefan was our guide & driver in the other trip - Wildcard Adventure.
He picked us up in a stormy day from Vik, while the roads were closed.
He showed us Landeyjasandur black beach, Seljalandsfoss, Eyafjallajokull (we went close to the top of the glacier with a superjeep) and Thorsmork Valley. After that, he dropped us off in Reykjavik.

We recommend future travellers this company and these tours.

We had an amazing touring experience with South Coast in super jeeps across several days - to the Katla ice caves, Þórsmörk and also the northern lights. Our guide Haukur was absolutely brilliant. He really went the extra mile to make our experience very memorable.
