TOURS IN SOUTH ICELAND

South Iceland is where the country’s “fire and ice” nickname comes to life. Glacier-topped volcanoes, floating icebergs, black sand beaches, mossy lava fields, hot springs and waterfalls can all be experienced in this dazzling region. Visit Iceland’s south coast on a tour tailor-made by the local experts at Nordic Visitor.

TRAVEL TO ICELAND’S SOUTH COAST

The south coast is Iceland’s most visited region, and with good reason. 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 Thingvellir 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 Jökulsárlón iceberg 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 in 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 — a south coast tour in winter allows you to experience all the major highlights in addition to the possibility of seeing the northern lights.

Each region of Iceland is unique — 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.

Iceland Road Trip, June 2017

What a fantastic holiday

We loved Iceland, the people and we have a myriad of experiences to reflect back on. What a fantastic holiday. It worked smoothly from beginning to end. Thank you Nordic Visitor and in particular Dagny.

Jack, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, July 2017

Been to 30 countries & rate this at the top

I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to many friends who are interested. Thank you for the chance to visit your country. I have now been to thirty countries and rate this experience at the top. What impressed me also were the number of young people, drivers, waiters, hotel staff, who were so excited to meet and show their country. The most impressive part of this trip was Iceland and her greatest aspect, her people. I look forward to returning.

Amy Woods, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, July 2017

Can't wait to come back!

I have already recommend Nordic Visitor to several friends and family members! We had an absolutely amazing trip and I can't wait to come back! Everyone was helpful and patiently answered all of my questions. I'm very happy we chose Nordic Visitor for our trip and I would choose them again!

Iceland Full Circle Classic, June 2017

One of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had

The service provided by Nordic Visitor was excellent and we had one of the best and most enjoyable holidays we have ever had. It was a pity that the offices have moved out of the centre of Reykjavik as we would have liked to have visited to thank Klara in person.

Would recommend this company in a heartbeat!

Kristin was amazing from the very start. without her help, I do not think this vacation would have been half as wonderful as it was. would recommend this company in a heartbeat!

Excellent planning

Very quick to answer all of my questions with friendly informative replies Choices of varied accommodation was wonderful - loved the guesthouses. Daily driving time was perfect between destinations- not too long or too short. Excellent planning - well done.

Excellent company to work with

Excellent company to work with. The materials provided to us were well chosen and very helpful. We asked for additional copies of the road map and bound guide and these were waiting for us on our return to Reykjavik.  A pleasure doing business with Nordic Visitor.
