Description

Iceland's South Coast is simply amazing and is home to some of the most iconic attractions in the country such as spectacular waterfalls, black sand beaches, volcanoes, and glaciers. 

On Private Luxury South Coast Jeep Tour, we pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik with our luxury 4x4 jeep and we head towards our first stop, the magnificent Skógafoss, one of Iceland's most visited and most beautiful waterfalls. Here you have some time to walk up close to the waterfall and you can also climb up the staircase on the side of the waterfall to take stunning pictures from above.

We then continue our journey driving along Iceland's Ring Road. As we drive, you will be able to see one of Iceland's most active volcanoes, Hekla, known in the Middle Ages as the “gateway to hell”. Hekla usually erupts roughly every 10 years but is now way overdue.
From the Ring Road, another Icelandic volcano is visible - the infamous Eyjafjallajökull that erupted in 2010 affecting air traffic all over Europe and making Iceland famous all over the world. 

We make a quick stop at the Lava Centre, a museum dedicated to Iceland's volcanoes and seismic activity, where you can observe the monitoring of active volcanic systems, earthquake activity, and surface movements in Iceland.  

Our Private Luxury South Coast Jeep Tour continues to one of Iceland's most fascinating glaciers, Sólheimajökull. Located just off the main road, Sólheimajökull is a glacier tongue of Mýrdalsjökull, a large glacier on Iceland's South Coast. From the car park, a well-paved path leads to the edge of the glacier, where you can take some amazing pictures of the ice with its black stripes caused by volcano ashes and rocks, and see the lagoon forming in front of it as the glacier is sadly melting as a result of climate change.  

The next stop on our Private Luxury South Coast Jeep Tour is Dyrhólaey, a spectacular sea cliff from which you have a fantastic view over the surrounding black sand beaches, the ocean, and the mountains. With some luck, it is possible to spot some puffins on the cliffs in the summer months (June to August). 

Aboard our luxury jeep, we then continue to Reynisfjara, where you can visit the famous black sand beach with sea stacks and basalt columns, before heading to the picturesque town of Vík í Mýrdal, where we can admire Reynisdrangar sea rock formations.  

On our way back we make a stop to see Seljalandsfoss, another popular and extremely beautiful Icelandic waterfall. We like to leave this as our last stop before heading back to Reykjavik as you are able to walk behind the waterfall and you will most likely get wet. The path behind the waterfall is quite slippery but it is a lot of fun to walk behind the fall and feel its power... just remember to bring your raincoat and waterproof shoes. 

Just a few minutes' walk from Seljalandsfoss, Gljúfrabúi is another beautiful and often forgotten waterfall. Usually omitted by bus tours, you get a chance to see the waterfall and its canyon on our Private Luxury South Coast Tour.

There will be coffee and comfort stops during this private tour, so you can enjoy Iceland in luxury and comfort. 

If you take the tour in the winter (September-March) you might be lucky and get a glimpse of the Northern Lights on the way back to Reykjavik, weather permitting.
