Listen while your guide shares stories about southern Iceland, and marvel at the epic landscapes of Skaftafell, a wilderness area in Vatnajökull National Park. Stop at Skogafoss waterfall and drive through Skeidararsandur, a vast black sand plain. See Oraefajokull—Iceland’s largest active volcano—just before you reach the lagoon. Next, visit Seljalandfoss and take the footpath behind the mighty falls. Then, hop back on board the bus for the drive back to Reykjavik to be dropped off at the departure point.

Absolutely amazing trip! So many beautiful places to see. My husband and I loved the whole experience. The tour guide and driver made us feel comfortable and safe! We got stuck in blizzard like conditions on the way back, they made sure we were safe.

Thank you 971nanic for writing a review of you experience with us on tour of the South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacier lagoon. Weather can turn quickly in some parts of the long stretch of road on the South Coast and our staff is well prepared. Glad you enjoyed the tour and feeling of safety that is our top priority.

We were collected from our hotel at 7:30 am and dropped off at around midnight, so this is a long day tour but worth every minute. Diamond Beech was the highlight for us and we would not hesitate to book this tour again. The tour was initially cancelled due to bad weather but
