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.
