- Lava Centre
The tour is brilliant value for money!
Visiting the Lava centre, 2 waterfalls which are outstanding, small town of just 300 inhabitants with a black sand beach and amazing rock formations for some outstanding pics and a walk along the glaciers
Tour is approx 10 hours so well worth the money!
Another successful day tour with Reykjavik Excursions to the southern part of Iceland: waterfalls, glaciers, sands... can’t tell what I liked most! Very well prepared guide + driver made the rest. Highly recommended!
Such a good day out with Reykjavík Excursions. Excellent guide and plenty of time given at each stop to see the amazing waterfalls, glaciers and black beach. Brilliant SouthShore Adventure
Itinerary - South Shore Adventure
We start our tour from BSI bus terminal in downtown Reykjavik and head to the Lava Centre in Hvolsvöllur. It is approximately an hour and half ride. We will stop at Lava Centre for a short break and you are able to grab light snacks and use the facilities. The Lava Centre is dedicated to Iceland's riveting volcanic activity and it's frequent earthquakes.
Skógafoss is an iconic Icelandic waterfall, it is the starting point of the Fimmvörðuháls hiking trail over into Þórsmörk. The waterfall was also used in filming Thor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
Vík is a charming village surrounded by high beautiful bird cliffs. Population: 300
We will also stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach, with the Reynisdrangar rock formations and columnar basalt. It is one of the most spectacular beaches in Iceland but can be dangerous, and we kindly ask our guest not to go too close to the ocean and go by guidelines.
Reynisdrangar are basalt sea stacks just off the coast of Reynisfjara
We stop by Sólheimajökull and walk up to a small lake which has formed in front of the retreating glacier.
Seljalandsfoss is part of the Seljalandsá river, which has its origins in Eyjafjallajökull glacier. What makes Seljalandsfoss so famous and interesting is that you can walk behind it. We recommend you bring either a raincoat or a waterproof coat along if you want to walk behind it.
