    What to Expect
    Following convenient pickup at your hotel in Reykjavik, leave the city for your day's exploration of Iceland's southern coast. As you travel, take advantage of the in-bus audio guide, available in 10 languages, to gain insight on the landscape as you pass.

    First, you'll head to the Sólheimajökull glacier. Trek around the crevasses and cracks with a certified glacier guide. Learn about the formation of the glacier, which flows from the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, and how it helped form the surrounding landscape. Then, travel to Skógarfoss falls, where you'll climb 527 steps to admire the 213-foot (60-meter) waterfall from above. 

    Finally, stop at Seljalandsfoss, considered among Iceland's top natural attractions. Walk the path behind the rushing water to get a different perspective on the tumbling falls.

    Back on board the bus, pass through an area rich with both fertile land and Viking history. On a clear day, get unobstructed views of the Westman Islands, Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes.

    At the end your 11-hour sightseeing tour, return to your Reykjavik hotel for drop-off.

    This is a full day south coast tour. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and we were there in the middle of a storm. However, our tour guide made sure we did as much of the tour as we could despite this. We could not go to the glacier or to Vik but we still managed to

    We went on the excellent South Coast tour with Siggy (son of Olof) and Santa on 28th Feb. Siggy was hilarious, and told us a lot about Icelandic history and mannerisms! He reminded us of Jason Momoa! The waterfalls, the black sand beach and the glacier were stunning! The only

    I booked for a tour and hotel pick up also. They want you waiting for the van in front of the hotel 30 minutes before departure. That morning it was cold and rainy, so I preferred to wait inside the hotel seeing though the window the arrival of the van. After 30 minutes I asked

    Hi antonioavio We thank you for your review. We are sorry to learn about your experience with our company. Our goal is to provide a service suited to the different needs of our customers at a reasonable price and therefore we value every constructive comment that we receive. Our vouchers do state the following: "Please be in front of your accommodation or designated bus stop 30 minutes before stated departure time and look out for our all green SmartBus". Our tracking shows that our bus was in front of your hotel a few minutes after the pick up started. As there was no email or phone number on your booking, we were not able to contact you. As you can understand, drivers are not allowed to park the pick up busses, and leave the bus to search for customers that are not ready at their designated pick up location. We hope to welcome you in the future to make up this experience. All the best, The Reykjavik Sightseeing team
