South Coast Spectacular
Reykjavík – Skógar – Sólheimajökull – Vík – Reykjavík
The vast expance of Iceland's southern coastal plain, sandwiches snow-capped glaciers and the sea and criss-crossed by some of the country's most powerful rivers, is the subject of this option-packed tour. First stop is the waterfall Seljalandsfoss, set against the backdrop of Eyjafjallajökull glacier, before continuing to the waterfall Skógarfoss and Folk Museum at Skógar. One of the most interesting of its kind in Iceland, the museum building are roofed with turf in the traditional way. The trip then continues east, past the towering mass of Mýrdalsjökull glacier to Vík, Iceland's southermost village. And what way to round of a busy day than with a seafood banquet at local restaurant Víkurskáli, washed down with beer and Icelandic schnapps, "brennivín", before returning to Reykjavík.
Duration: 10 hrs.
