Rich in landscapes combining waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes and black sand beaches, southern Iceland is a must-visit region of the country. And a day trip from Reykjavík to Vík í Mýrdal is the perfect way to do just that! Aboard a 19-seater minibus, your small group led by a local guide will have the pleasure of discovering the richness of southern Iceland, with its magnificent landscapes and long history.

Your excursion to Vík í Mýrdal from Reykjavík will take you along Iceland's legendary circular road to see the famous Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, then to the Sólheimajökull glacier where you will walk for around 30 minutes. You will then make your way to Reynisfjara beach, south of Vík, where the panoramic views of the ocean and the cliffs of Dyrhólaey will leave you breathless.
