**SOUTH SHORE ADVENTURE TOUR by Reykjavik Excursion**

06:34 Stræto (Local bus) departure from Hringbraut/Melteigur bus stop to Reykjavik BSI. Please be ready on time. Please note that this bus only runs Monday to Friday except public holidays.

09:00 At BSI Bus Terminal in Reykjavik, you will change to the tour bus for your full day excursion visiting the waterfalls in the south and the black sand beach near Vik.

This tour is ideal for nature lovers of all kinds. We take you along the south coast of Iceland, one of the country’s most scenic regions, as far as Vík, a charming village surrounded by high beautiful bird cliffs. South Iceland is special for that it is one of the flattest regions on the island. Because of that, most of all grain farming in Iceland is done there. The high mountains to the north, shield the area from the harshest winds from the north. Among the stops on this tour are at the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is part of the Seljandsá river, which has its origins in Eyjafjallajökull glacier. What makes Seljalandsfoss so famous and interesting is that you can walk behind it. We recommend you bring either a raincoat or a waterproof coat along if you want to walk behind it. Skógafoss, another famous Icelandic waterfall, is the starting point of the Fimmvörðuháls walk over to Þórsmörk. The waterfall was also used in the films Thor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

We will also stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach, with the Reynisdrangar rock formations and columnar basalt. It is one of the most spectacular beaches in Iceland but can be dangerous, and we kindly ask our guests not to go too close to the ocean and go by guidelines. Additionally, we will stop by Sólheimajökull and walk up to a small lake which has formed in front of the retreating glacier.

19:00 End of the tour

19:25 Departure of Stræto No. 55 (Local bus) from Reykjavik BSI to Hringbraut/Melteigur bus stop nearby the guesthouse. Please note that this bus only runs Monday to Friday except public holidays.
