This tour offers a fascinating introduction to the geology of Iceland through its magnificent coastal scenery and is a a great tour to take in addition to the Golden Circle. You will visit the waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss (conditions permitting have a walk behind the curtain of water!), and Skógafoss whose sheer drop offers a spectacular photo opportunity. From the road can be glimpsed Eyjafjallajökull, the glacier brought to world attention in 2010 when its underlying volcano erupted, sending a black ash plume 11km into the atmosphere and closing European airspace for six days. Further along the coast is the small town of Vik, where the North Atlantic swell sends waves crashing on to its black sand beach. Here, the coastal scenery is stunning with a beautiful example of columnar basalt columns and, at certain times of the year, the bird life is prolific. For a chance to see a long stretch of the South shore and ancient cliff lines together with waterfalls and glaciers, without too much walking but plenty of photo opportunities, this is a great guided day tour to choose.
