What you'll do

Starting in Reykjavik, we'll set off on the world-famous Ring Road to the most beautiful locations on Iceland's southern coast.
★ BASE TOUR ★
✔Our first stop takes us to Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where glacial water roars 60 meters over a mossy cliff.

✔Next up, we'll stop by another gorgeous waterfall, Skogafoss, where sunny days bring double rainbows and once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities!

✔Then, we'll head to Solheimajokull Glacier, where we take a short walk up to the massive ice sheet and learn about its formation and importance to the ecosystem.

✔Our next stop takes us to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, with its striking cliffs, black sand, and massive basalt stacks. During the summer months, there are Puffins nesting along the cliffs, flying back and forth to catch fish and feed their young, it’s not always guaranteed that you will see them.

✔Just offshore, you'll see Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks towering 66 meters out of the sea, and you'll see them again from a different perspective as we make our way to the village of Vík, with its iconic Vikurkirkja church and stunning views.

✔Each stop is between 15-45 min

Hi there! I’m Konrad, your local tour guide and Icelandic nature expert.
After attending the University of Reykjavik, I began working in the tourism industry, which led to me become the CEO of one of the largest tour operators in the entire country.
Since leaving that position, I’ve dedicated my time to entrepreneurial pursuits in the travel, tech, and sustainable transportation industries. As a part of that, I offer eco-friendly tours to give visitors a chance to see the best that Iceland has to offer, while also ensuring that we all take care of the island I’m so grateful to call home.

David was amazing and evidently seasoned in the topics regarding Icelandic culture and geography. I was the only one who had booked the tour that day so it was a private tour and we had things to talk about for all 10 hours. The sights were really beautiful to see and David did an expert job at describing each location and the scenery between locations. The car was beautiful and electric, which also means it was sustainable. Everything about the tour was carefully curated and expertly planned and would recommend anyone to go on it!

Our tour guide David is among the best of the very best. He has a deep command of the country’s history, linguistic roots, geological formations, fauna, among so many other domains. He has a great sense of humor and customized the information he shared based on our interests and backgrounds. It was only myself and another super nice guest which made the experience warmer and more intimate. I highly recommend this tour. Kudos to Konrad and David! Thank you!!!

This is not hyperbole: David is the single best tour guide I have ever had across 15+ countries. He is incredibly knowledgable—both about the our location and destinations, as well as pretty much everything else you could think to chat about on a 10 hour tour. Not only did I feel like I better understood and appreciated the sites we were visiting, but I felt like I got a 101 on Icelandic language and how it manifests in place names. David was also very willing to be recorded on the spot for a podcast project I am in Iceland for as he talked about the Eyjafjallajökull eruption and the history of the volcanic ridge we were driving along. It was wonderful!

Iceland’s southcoast was definity worth exploring - it’s amazingly beautiful. Our host gave us a lot of interesting background information on the drive between the locations. Go for it!

Unfortunately we were a bit unlucky with the weather as it was raining for pretty much the entire trip. We still managed to have a great trip though! Konrad was really nice and very knowledgeable and the whole route was very well thought out. We had just enough time at every stop, and we went to a few of the sights on our way to Vik and then a few on our way back. All in all it was just really good and I can strongly recommend it!
