FAQs about South Iceland trips

No vacation to Iceland is complete without a visit to this stunning region. If you’re planning a trip to the south coast, you’ve probably got some questions. We’ve answered the most commonly asked ones below.

With waterfalls, glaciers, and volcanic landscapes, South Iceland definitely deserves a spot in your itinerary. This awesome area is home to some of the country’s most popular natural attractions. These include the iconic Vatnajökull Glacier & National Park, and Skógafoss, one of Iceland’s biggest waterfalls.

The south coast is also one of the best places to see puffins in Iceland! If you’re here in the summertime, you can spot these cuties at Dyrhólaey, a rocky arch next to the famous Reynisfjara black sand beach.

Whether you take the wheel on a self-drive trip, or opt for a guided large or small group tour, you won’t want to miss exploring this scenic region.

Since you’ll only be a stone’s throw from the legendary Golden Circle, you can easily detour here at the start or end of your South Iceland trip.

Iceland’s south coast is rich in awe-inspiring natural wonders. You’ll find many famous landmarks in this part of the country, including:

Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation, or just want to take in the jaw-dropping sights, there’s lots to do on the south coast. These are some of the top activities you can get up to while you’re here:

  • Sail between glittering icebergs on a boat tour of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon

For more inspo, check out this handy guide to the best things to see and do on Iceland’s south coast.

Iceland's south coast stretches from the Reykjanes peninsula in the west all the way to East Iceland. At just a 1–1.5 hour drive away, the western end of the south coast is closest to Reykjavík. From the Icelandic capital, you can follow the Ring Road (Route 1) along the coastline.

Being so close to the capital makes it the ideal region to explore on a multi-day tour from Reykjavík. You can discover top attractions on the south coast by day before returning to your home base in the city for the evening.

You can drive the south coast in a day without stopping, but that’s no way to experience Iceland!

To truly soak up everything the south coast has to offer, we recommend at least 2 days for your trip. For instance, you could spend an entire day just exploring Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest national park and home to Europe’s largest glacier.

If you want to take your time and see all the attractions, you can easily spend 5 days or more traveling this scenic stretch of Iceland.

When you book a South Iceland vacation package with us, the following is included:

  • Accommodation level of your choice
  • Delicious daily breakfast
  • Detailed itinerary created by local experts
  • Access to our 24/7 helpline when you’re in Iceland

Depending on the travel style you choose, you can customize your trip with extra days in Reykjavík and bonus activities. For example, you could add a visit to the Blue Lagoon and soak in those famous milky-blue waters.

Our tour packages don’t include flights, which means you can get the most flexibility and value for money when you book your own. But all local ground transport is covered, such as airport transfers and hotel pick-ups for day tours. If you book a self-drive or camping tour, you’ll get a rental car of your choice.

With Iceland Tours, booking your South Iceland getaway has never been easier. Start by browsing the vacation packages on this page and narrow your search by what matters to you most. For example, you can filter by travel style, season, or budget.

Once you’ve picked your tour, follow the steps on the trip page to book online. For a detailed guide on how to find, book, and customize your ideal trip, check out our how to book with us page.

The only exception is guided group tours which have fixed departures. You can check the start dates on the individual tour pages and pick the one that suits you. You’ll find there are lots of options during the popular summer and winter seasons.

Search for flights to Iceland once you have a rough idea of what dates you want to travel and how long your trip will be. This will give you an estimate of prices and an approximate arrival time in Iceland.

Pop those dates into the booking form when you reserve your tour online. Once your trip is confirmed, you can go ahead and book your flights.
