As the South Iceland trip was cancelled due to adverse weather we went on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Cave Exploration trip instead. The scenery was beautiful and the guide was great, even teaching us some Icelandic along the way. The cave visit was fascinating and the cave guide was very funny and informative. On the way back to Reykjavik the weather was particularly bad (very snowy/windy) but the driver was excellent and got us back safely.

Nice trip, you can see a lot of the landscape.

Tour Itinerary

Your South Iceland journey will take you through the country’s lush farmlands, flanked by rugged mountains, glaciers (including the infamous Eyjafjallajökull) and volcanoes of the interior on one side and vast Atlantic ocean views on the other.

On this tour of South Iceland you will also experience the powerful beauty of Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where the Seljalandsá river, which originates under Eyjafjallajökull glacier, falls, as well as Skógafoss, one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland.

Just outside the town of Vík í Mýrdal (or just Vík to the locals) you will visit the soaring basalt rock formation known as Reynisdrangar and the black sand beach of Reynisfjara.

A written description is nothing compared to the lived experience. Let the guides at Gray Line bring South Iceland to life with stories, facts, science and history.
