Traveler Tips


  • "Wear a waterproof coat and you'll be fine) and the famous black sand beaches and rock formations in the cliffs AND GLACIERS!" See review
  • "Make sure you have waterproof boots with great traction, since the entire place blanketed with snow, very slippery since some parts of the trail with ice." See review
  • "The lunch break might take a while depending on what you order, thus, even though you have 45 minutes to eat, you might end up having to rush it on the last 10." See review

Great way to see Southern Iceland and not having to drive through the snow yourself. It’s a well paced tour and organized. Our guide had good commentary throughout our trip and was very helpful and kind. Easy from start to finish and sufficient time at each stop.

Southern Iceland March

We so enjoyed this trip to southern Iceland. The only thing that would have made this tour a little better would be cutting the time a few minutes shorter at the beach and giving more time at the large waterfall. We felt slightly pressed for time since we opted to climb to the top of the waterfall. Otherwise, absolutely lovely trip and still very very worth it!

Stunning Southern Shores Trip

What a fantastic trip, better than I thought it would be. Good organisation with coach pick up and drop off. Good driver and guide who was constantly updating us on events and history of iceland. The locations were pretty stunning - especially the beach, we were warned not to go too near the waters edge, because of the crashing waves, explore the cave etc. On the black sand beach. Also visited 2 waterfalls and a glacier flowing from the ice cap, stunning scenery especially in the snow - make sure you have decent snow shoes!!!
