TRAVEL TO ICELAND’S SOUTH COAST
The South Coast is Iceland’s most visited region, and you'll soon see why. This is where you’ll find Iceland’s most popular natural attractions, many of which are just a few hours’ drive from the capital city, Reykjavik.
South Iceland is home to the famous Golden Circle route, containing Þingvellir National Park, the Geysir hot springs area and the Gullfoss waterfall. It’s also the part of the country that gives rise to Iceland’s “fire and ice” nickname, with Europe’s largest glaciers in close proximity to active volcanoes such as Eyjafjallajökull.
Other must-see highlights along the Ring Road in this region include the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, the spectacular Reynisfjara black sand beach and the breathtaking Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls.
While you can visit many of these sites on day tours during a Reykjavik stopover, a self-drive tour of the south coast gives you more flexibility to explore each attraction at your pace.
Even better, you can travel to South Iceland at any time of year. In summer you'll have long daylights hours to take advantage of and in winter there will be smaller crowds at popular attractions and you'll have a chance of seeing the northern lights.
What's more, whatever tour you pick, you'll get our signature benefits. This includes a hand-marked map with your route, accommodation and highlights, our Nordic Visitor Iceland Travel Guide, access to the 24/7 helpline and much more.
Each region of Iceland is unique, so why not see them all? To drive around the entire Ring Road at a relaxed pace, we recommend a tour of 10 days or more. To make your Nordic tour even more memorable, you could also visit neighbouring Greenland. We can combine both countries in one tour, with flights between Iceland and Greenland included.
