Trip Highlights


The South Coast is one of the most breathtaking areas here in Iceland and on this South Coast day tour we take a little twist without skipping the most beatiful places.

Six waterfalls and the Black Sand Beach – all in one day so if you are a waterfall fan this is your tour and if not you will become a fan after this private day tour. 

From our first stop at Urriðafoss waterfall until our last Nauthúsagil canyon waterfall you will be shown so very different waterfalls that it is actually strange they are so close to each other. But to ensure that we dont get to many waterfall syndrome we will visit the very famous Black Sand Beach of Iceland and admire not only the beach but the amazing basalt columns and the incredible lava formations around them.

This is a daytour at the South Coast you can’t miss out when visiting.
