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.

"Arrival"  Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Iceland  A remarkable moment, filled with blossoming elements all over this icelandic landscape, from the midnight warm clouds to the endless stream of water and resilient vegetation.
. 
This image was made right after I arrived to the Seljalandsfoss parking space, during the June 2016 trip. The clouds were warming up before midnight, and I got the usual impulse of going straight to the waterfall base and shoot from there. All of a sudden this purplish red cloud starts coming right from behind the waterfall and I instinctively decided I had to capture it, trying a new visual approach for this iconic spot. Using a vibrant plant in the foreground, the river stream as guiding line and mirroring the cloud in the water, this is the final result. Technical info: Sony a7R + Sony 10-18mm f4 at 13mm   Exposure: 2 seconds  Aperture: f/13  ISO: 50  Tripod  4 stops soft ND Grad (Nisi) + 4 stops full ND (Nisi)  Wireless remote shutter  Manual focus .

Have you ever been to the black sand beach in Vík?
Walking here is probably as beautiful as it is dangerous due to sneaky waves that you can’t see right away that might pull you out on to the open ocean.
