Our two-day South Coast Tour is perfect to escape the city and explore the entire South Coast of Iceland. We bring you all the way to the southeast of the country where a landscape with the biggest glaciers and mountains waits for you.

The glacier hike takes place on an outlet glacier called Solheimajökull, coming down from the fourth biggest glacier in the country. The glacier is located between two of the biggest volcanoes called Eyjafjallajökull and Katla. Admire spectacular views while we are driving through the Vatnajökull national park. Vatnajökull is Iceland's biggest glacier and it covers around 8% of the country.

The land of Fire and Ice not only offers breathtaking scenery, but we also find history and sagas behind every corner. Viking fairytales, elves and troll stories, your guide will share all the interesting stories with you. This tour is perfect for families, couples, and solo travelers who want to escape the city.

Other Practical InformationThis tour is operated from April to October. If you are looking for a 2day tour during the winter months, please check out our 2 Day South Coast Winter Tour. Pickup is from designated locations in Reykjavík. Pickup is not available from Keflavik airport or outside of the greater capital area. When it comes to the glacier hike, safety is our priority number one. Even though the hike is created for firsttimers, some of the terrains lead us through icy and steep terrain. If you don't like to be on your feet, the glacier hike may not be for you. We will provide you with all the necessary gear but full mobility is required in order to have a safe trip on the glacier. All our guides have a lot of experience with glacier hikes and they will make a final decision whether you are able to participate or not when we arrive at the glacier. Please remember that if a guide refuses to let you go on the glacier, the decision is made with your safety in mind. The weather situation can change really fast in Iceland. Stormy weather or heavy rainfall can make the glacier inaccessible. In case we can't operate the glacier hike on Sólheimajökull, we have several other outlet glaciers as a Plan B. Fjaðrargljúfur canyon is sometimes closed by the Icelandic government because of flooding or nature protection. In case we can't visit the canyon, we will add other stops. There are plenty of beautiful places we can explore on the South Coast.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • What is the best month to visit Iceland?

    Given that summer temperatures do not rise much above 16°C, the best time to visit Iceland is between the months of May and September. Gullfoss Waterfall is also at its most impressive at this time of year, and the midnight sun is visible in the country’s north. Travel outside of the summer season and you may find the country’s museums and hiking routes, such as the Laugavegur Trail, closed. However, the period between November to February does have the bonus of being the season of the Northern Lights, and major attractions such as the Blue Lagoon remain open all year round. Find more information here.

  • How do I plan a 15-day trip to Europe?

    If you are planning to visit multiple countries, you should prepare a tentative list of destinations you are interested in. If it is your first trip, stick to major cities and cultural centers for the sake of simplicity and convenience. Also, be flexible and optimize your travel time and budget. Be open to changing your itinerary depending on schedules and ticket prices.

  • Is Iceland expensive to visit? How does the credit card system work? Do I need to carry cash in hand?

    Iceland is one of the most expensive countries in the world to visit, although there are ways to keep costs down, such as by renting a camper van. Overall, visitors should be looking at a daily per-person budget of between USD 100 and USD 200. Most hotels, restaurants, and shops accept credit cards from major providers, and there are no minimum purchase requirements. Since cards are the preferred method of payment, you should be okay even if you avoid carrying cash completely, although having some for emergencies is always a good idea.

  • What currency do they use in Iceland?

    The currency of Iceland is the krona (ISK). It is difficult to exchange your dollars and euros with the Icelandic currencies outside of the country, but easy to do once in the country, both at the airport and in bank branches around the island. USD 1 is equivalent to around ISK 130.
