Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Seljalandsfoss, Hella Iceland

The famous waterfall one you can walk behind. Be careful you might get wet :)

This unique waterfall flows from the infamous glacier Eyjafjallajökull, the molten-syllables-which nobody can pronounce good for nothing volcanic glacier that stopped all the air traffic over the North-Atlantic back in 2010.

At Seljalandsfoss there are restrooms, a food stall and a small gift shop. The restrooms are free of charge.

NOTE:

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Skogafoss, Skogar Iceland

An archetypal waterfall, Skógafoss is one of the most beautiful and tallest waterfalls in Iceland.

There is a staircase leading to a viewing platform for the waterfall and surrounding areas. The platform gives you an expansive view of the south coast, Eyjafjallajökull and Skógafoss.

NOTE: the restrooms are behind a paywall and entry costs ISK 200 / USD 2.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Solheimajokull Glacier, Vik Iceland

Sólheimajökull is a glacier tongue, an offshoot off of the main body of Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

We walk towards Sólheimajökull, through the valley it has carved out of the mountain scape and along the glacier river it forms at its base. The valley is a chaotic collection of rocks, gravel and sand which the tongue ground down as it passed over the land.

The glacier is unlike others as it is striped with layers of ash crushed between seasonal layers of ice, but the glacier is surrounded by multiple active volcanic stations.

NOTE: the restrooms are behind a paywall and entry costs ISK 300 / USD 2.5, they accept credit cards.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Reynisfjara Beach, Route 215, Vik Iceland

Reynisfjara, or the Black Sand Beach, is truly a natural marvel. The site offers beautiful basalt columns, a natural arc viewed from afar, troll-like sea stacks and during the summer season there are thousands of puffins which make the cliffs of the Black Sand Beach their home.

We do both sightseeing and the lunch break there. The restaurant overlooks the South Coast and offers bites suitable for any palate and diet. Restrooms are free for customers.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Vik, Vik, South Region

A short photo stop at the photogenic village of Vík. We stop by the town's church where the troll-like basalt stacks and the village provide the perfect background for a selfie :D

Duration: 15 minutes

I was incredibly lucky to secure a last minute spot on this tour after two others had to cancel because of weather—all thanks to one of their staff (Anna Sigrún Bernhðsódttir Wilkinsin). I am so grateful—probably the best experience I had on my short trip to Iceland. Otto was a great guide—happy to share his knowledge, personal experiences and stories, and Icelandic music along the way. The waterfalls are amazing, and the black beach was terrifying in a good way. We didn’t make it to Vik or the glacier because of road conditions, but that’s not bad considering it was January, and just about every other tour operator canceled that day.

We had a fabulous tour with Christoff, he was very friendly and knowledgeable. He drove very carefully and in what was snowy adverse conditions. He always put our safety first and was very clear with his instructions. Great tour would highly reccomend. The views were beautiful and the sea at black sand beach was just breathtaking

Thank you Anna for being such an amazing tour guide and giving us a great day touring the South Coast. Your Day Tours, is top notch in providing a comfortable, informative and all around enjoyable experience. It was one thing to stop at all the beautiful stops and sights that Iceland has to offer but having such a great informative tour guide to educate us and immerse us in the rich history, music and folklore of Iceland, was truly a memorable experience.

Chose this company (Your Day Tours) based on their high ratings and price, and wasn’t disappointed. Our driver Andy was great. Approx. 16 people on the mini bus. Wifi service provided. Pickups and drop offs were on time.

Best trip I had in Iceland. Fantastic driver and tour guide. I enjoyed the ride with the mini bus. Picked up from the hotel location. Thank you. I guess mini bus makes big difference vs huge busses.
