You will be picked up from your hotel/ guesthouse at 0830h (08:30am) and taken on a guided bus tour of the scenic south coast of Iceland, wealthy in history as well as natural attractions. (For language preference of the guide, please refer to the "Activity Schedule" section.)
The tour will visit the following places:
• Skógasafn Museum of Transport: Skógar is a tiny village in southern Iceland, primarily agricultural. The village has a small but interesting museum of folklore, Skógasafn, open daily all year round, as well as a museum on transport in Iceland.
• Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss Waterfalls: The picturesque Seljalandsfoss waterfall is one of the most famous waterfalls of Iceland. It is 40 meters high and its main attraction, besides the scenery, is the fact that there is a pathway leading behind the waterfall and out the other side, giving visitors a chance to view the falls from within. The Skógafoss is one of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls of the country with a width of 25 meters and a drop of 60 meters. Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days.
• Sólheimajökull Glacier: (if road conditions allow) The Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends down to the lowlands and is an impressive ice field of solid blue ice with crusty whitish surface.
• Vik village: Around lunchtime, you will stop at the village Vík, Iceland’s southernmost village, which is surrounded by beautiful and impressive high bird cliffs. The black volcanic sand beach south of Vík is ideal for viewing the spectacular rock formations Dyrhólaey and Reynisdrangar.
The tour returns to the starting point after approximately 10 hours.
