Tour Details

This South Shore tour is ideal for nature lovers of all kinds. We take you along the south coast of Iceland, one of the country’s most scenic regions, as far as Vík, a charming village surrounded by high beautiful bird cliffs.

South Iceland is special for that it is one of the flattest regions on the island. As a result, nearly all grain farming in Iceland is done there. The high mountains to the north, shield the area from the harshest northern winds.


Tour Highlights

Seljalandsfoss
This is one of the most famous and scenic waterfalls in the country. The best part of this 60-metre high waterfall is that you can go behind it as there is a cave. Be sure to pack a raincoat because you will probably get wet when accessing it. If you are lucky and visit this area on a sunny day, you will see a beautiful rainbow.

Skógafoss
Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country. Located near the village of Skógar, this waterfall is 25 metres wide and its top offers splendid views of the aread. A legend says that there is a treasure hidden in a cave behind the waterfall. If you happen to arrive on a sunny day, a rainbow can be seen. There are many hiking and trekking trails in the area - it makes for a perfect day spend in scenic nature. This natural beauty has been recently used as a set for a few films - for example Thor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Sólheimajökull
One of the best ways to experience a glacier up close and personal in Iceland is probably to explore the Sólheimajökull glacier that sticks out of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Incidentally, the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap covers the mean and mighty Katla caldera, a fierce volcano that will one day erupt with fearful consequences. Just think massive floods and horrendous amount of pumice and ash.

Dyrhólaey
Located not far from the village of Vík, this small peninsula with cliffs is a protected area. It is home to many seabirds, including puffins, gulls and fulmars. The views from the cliff are exceptional, but don't get too close to the edge! Wondering about the name? Literally translated into English, it means "door-hole" and indeed, when there are no waves, boats can sail through the hole.

Reynisfjara
A unique beach with black sand. This place is a must if you want to take truly unusual photographs, alongside the lava columns rising out of the sea. According to the folklore legend, these are two trolls who attempted to drag a ship to land but were turned to stone - come and see for yourself! The beach is also an ideal place for birdwatching with lots of puffins and fulmars.

Vík
The village of Vík is the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the main ring road around the island, around 180 km by road southeast of Reykjavík. Despite its small size it is the largest settlement for some 70 km around and is an important staging post, thus it is indicated on road signs from a long distance away. It is an important service center for the inhabitants of and visitors to the coastal strip between Skógar and the west edge of the Mýrdalssandur glacial outwash plain.

So many things had to go right in such a short amount of time in order to make this trip possible. I left the classroom this year not planning to return. If I wanted to meet my friends for this trip that was planned I needed to 1) find a job in the new career I was attempting to transition into 2) have them be willing to let me use my pto so soon 3) find a relatively cheap flight, place to stay, car to rent, etc. 4) renew my passport three days prior to leaving and 5) make sure I checked out for all the Covid protocols and procedures for traveling abroad. One by one everything started to align despite my worry. I still cannot believe that I am here and I’m eternally grateful.

That moment when the wind shifts and the waterfall is now heading your way...
Þórsmörk

The number one question we're getting asked... where has been our favorite place in Iceland?

Well, this might be it. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐓𝐡𝐨𝐫.

This lush, remote valley in the southern Highlands, nestled between three glaciers. Getting here is a journey in itself.

↠ You can either hike in, a minimum of 16 miles.
↠ You can skillfully drive a huge overlander vehicle (do not attempt to reach here in a standard 4x4).
↠ You can book a private Super Jeep Tour.
↠ Or (like we did), hop on one of the big Monster Highlands buses.

The valley is guarded by one of the most dangerous rivers in Iceland -- that has unfortunately claimed the lives of numerous tourists, locals, and vehicles.

But once arrived, it's a true feast for the senses... and your lens.
Living the dream?
I truly don’t think so.
Living 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙙𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙢?
𝗔𝗯𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆✨!!

Everyone’s dream life looks different.
It’s ok to want different things.
It’s ok to not want what everyone else does.
It’s ok to redefine what you want throughout your life.
It’s ok to say “screw it” and find a new dream.

I don’t know where tomorrow leads or where we’ll even sleep tonight…
But I do know that this life we built together, it’s better than I ever dreamed!
.

Which dream are you chasing today?
