South Shore Adventure

Waterfalls, glaciers and black sand beaches – this tour has it all. If you don’t want to rent a car to do the south shore this is probably the most affordable way to experience its amazing beauty. 

The south shore is one of Iceland most beloved route because of its diverse landscapes and extraordinary beauty. This is a fairly long day tour but one that is totally worth it, both summer and winter.

If you would rather do this tour on your own we also offer great prices on car rental, especially on short rentals (perfect for day tours out of the city).

Pick up offered from all guesthouses and hotels in the Reykjavík area. If you are staying in AirBnB apartments or similar please find the nearest guesthouse and hotel and book the pick up from there.


The stops on this tour include the amazing Seljalandsfoss which is known for it’s beauty and the fact you can walk behind it. You will also see Skógafoss, another gorgeous waterfall, but legend has it that there’s a treasure buried behind it (we don’t recommend you go look for it though). At Skógar you will also visit Skógar Folk Museum which is one of our favorite museums in Iceland. The tour will also take you to the amazing Reynisfjara beach and the quaint Vík village.

What to wear

Although you will be sitting on the bus between places, once you get to each destination you will be spending some time outside. So we suggest you wear layers, lots of layers (so you won’t be too warm on the bus and so you will be just warm enough outside.). A hat and mittens has never hurt anyone either.
