Best Iceland South Coast Tours: Your Guide

Of all the nation’s breathtaking regions, it’s the south coast that’s truly special

15. desember 2023

On a south coast tour of Iceland you’ll see why for yourself. With magical waterfalls, glacial lagoons, and vast national parks, there’s nowhere that better reveals the miraculous variety of the Land of Ice and Fire.

Read on to learn about some of the best Iceland south coast tours. You’ll discover six of the best destinations to explore and find the answers to some key questions.

1. Explore the south coast’s glaciers

Iceland is home to some of the largest glaciers in Europe. In fact, as much as 11% of the nation’s land surface is covered in ice. That makes a trip to an ice cap a must when touring the country.

Iceland’s south coast is where most of these glaciers can be found. For example, there’s the mighty Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest glacier and the second-largest in Europe. There’s Eyjafjallajökull, the glacier that covers the disruptive volcano of the same name. Or there’s Langjökull, known for its immense length.

There’s so much that you can get up to on these enormous expanses of ice. Glacier hiking is one popular option. You’ll put on crampons and stride out across the ice led by an expert guide. Along the way, learn about some of the powerful processes that have changed our landscape.

Alternatively, on the Sólheimajökull glacier, swap your crampons for an all-terrain vehicle and enjoy a high-octane tour of this white world. It’s a thrilling ride. Find out more in our guide to Iceland’s glaciers or our Sólheimajökull guide.

Here is an informative article on what to wear on a glacier hike and another one on the five best glacier tours in Iceland and why people love them.

2. Take a trip to the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon

The landscape of Iceland looks the way it does largely due to glaciers. Many cliffs and valleys were carved out by ice, for instance, while the black-sand plains that you’ll see in the highlands are the lingering legacy of ancient glacial deposits.

But there’s nowhere that you’ll see the impact of Iceland’s changing glacial processes more dramatically than at Jökulsárlón. This magnificent otherworldly landscape is a testament to what happens when the climate changes, glaciers warm up, and the ice begins to retreat.

In the heart of the Vatnajökull National Park, Jökulsárlón is a vast lake fed by waters from the melting glaciers. But what makes the place so fascinating—and so poignant—is that it is growing all the time. Before the 1930s, Jökulsárlón didn’t exist, and it has quadrupled in size in the last fifty years.

Arrive at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon on a south coast tour and you’ll witness a desolate world of deep blue water and floating icebergs. You might even spot a seal or two in these icy waters.

While you’re here, though, don’t miss the diamond beach a short distance away. Here, chunks of glacial ice are strewn across the black sands, where they melt before being taken out to sea. It’s a beautiful opportunity for a unique photograph.

Find out more in our Jökulsárlón guide.

A guide to the south coast

Iceland’s south coast is home to many of the country’s most magical natural wonders. When visiting the Land of Ice and Fire, it’s likely you’ll spend most of your time exploring the area. With glaciers, volcanic landscapes, and the breathtaking Golden Circle, you’ll easily see why it deserves its reputation. It’s a region of immense and marvellous variety. What’s more, it’s a place where you can enjoy some incredible adventures too. Don’t forget south Iceland’s cultural sights. From the home of the oldest parliament in the world to innovative restaurants and spa experiences, there’s something for everyone.

3. Visit the waterfalls of South Iceland

It’s thought that there are about 10,000 waterfalls in Iceland, depending on how you count them. Out of this huge quantity, there are over 200 named falls, and these come in an incredible variety of shapes, sizes, and breathtaking settings.

On many of our south shore tours, you can see the very best of these waterfalls. For example, visit Seljalandsfoss. This elegant torrent of water has carved an immense cavern in the cliff behind, allowing you to walk around the cascade. Or, a short distance away, be amazed by Skógafoss, an awe-inspiring sheet of water.

But there are many more you can choose from. Gullfoss waterfall, for instance, one of the most powerful waterfalls in Europe, can be visited on tour of the Golden Circle. Alternatively, take a tour of Skaftafell nature reserve to see Svartifoss, with its strange geometric architecture.

Whatever inspires you along Iceland’s south coast, make sure to include a waterfall on your itinerary. Each offers its own uniquely exhilarating experience.

4. Experience the black sand beaches at Reynisfjara and Vík

At the heart of the south coast of Iceland, beneath the magnificent bulk of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, you’ll find Vík. It’s a delightful village that’s often used as a pitstop for adventures in the area. However, it’s well worth taking the time to explore the village itself.

For example, one of Iceland’s most iconic sights is just a short distance away. That’s Reynisfjara, a mysterious black-sand beach.

Here, you can see dramatic sea stacks emerge from the tumultuous waves, or witness the octagonal pillars of basalt that form a cave behind you. It’s not hard to see why Reynisfjara is often included in lists of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Close to Vík village, there’s also the chance to try a zipline adventure. After a short hike through the breathtaking Grafargil canyon, you can strap in and see the beauty of Iceland from above.

Visit Vík for yourself on a south shore adventure.

Must-see places in Iceland

With so many incredible destinations to see in Iceland, it can be hard to decide how to spend your visit. That’s why you need a list of sights and experiences that you simply cannot miss. Here are three to get you inspired:

1: Geldingadalir. For anyone interested in the majestic power of volcanoes, the area known as Geldingadalir is a must. Its volcano, Fagradalsfjall, erupted in 2021, and again in 2022, and there’s a good chance it will erupt again soon. It’s one of the few places in the world where you can safely see an active volcano.

2: The Golden Circle. Probably the best-known travel itinerary in Iceland, the Golden Circle deserves all the attention it gets. From historical sites to powerful geysers, there’s something for everyone.

3: Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. Some beaches are bright, summery, and picturesque, while others are moody, mysterious, and awe-inspiring. Reynisfjara is the latter and it’s one of the most memorable beaches on the planet.

5. Explore a Glacial ice Cave

Iceland's glaciers, a wonder of natural beauty, offer an array of ice caves ready to be explored. These caves, particularly prominent in the Myrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull glaciers, present a stunning display of transparent blue and volcanic black ice. While some of these ice caves are accessible throughout the year, others reveal their splendour primarily in the winter season.

For those intrigued by the beauty of these frozen formations, various modes of exploration are available. From adventurous routes involving monster trucks or snowmobile rides to glacier hikes, there's an option for every type of explorer. For those who prefer a more relaxed approach, certain caves are easily reachable without the need for extensive hiking experience.

These caves offer a glimpse into the dynamic and ever-changing world of Iceland's glaciers, presenting an opportunity for discovery and appreciation of these majestic natural phenomena.

For example, take a trip to one of Iceland’s most relaxing spa locations. The Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous, offers the opportunity to dip in the milky waters known for their therapeutic benefit. Alternatively, there’s the Sky Lagoon, with its immense views over the Atlantic.

Of course, if you’re coming in winter, don’t miss a trip to see the northern lights. This dancing display in the night sky is truly an unforgettable experience.

6. Feel the thrill of a south coast adventure tour

Finally, why not combine the beauties of Iceland with the thrill of an adventure tour? With one of our high-octane packages, you can feel the adrenaline pump as you explore the breathtaking scenery of the Land of Ice and Fire.

One option is to jump aboard an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and get a glimpse of some of the sights close to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. You’ll drive your ATV across rivers and beaches, before exploring Sólheimasandur, the site of the iconic DC-3 plane wreck. What’s more, you can also visit Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss on this tour too.

Alternatively, explore the area around Eyjafjallajökull by jeep. This is the volcano that erupted in 2010, disrupting air travel internationally. On a Eyjafjallajökull jeep tour, you’ll visit the areas that have been shaped by this volcano over the millennia, including waterfalls, cliffs, and beaches.

You can get a closer look at Iceland’s glaciers too. For instance, go kayaking on a glacier lake at the foot of the Sólheimajökull glacier. Or zoom across the ice on a glacier snowmobiling adventure.
