We start out with two amazing waterfalls. First, the famous Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, which we will do an exciting hike behind to hear and feel the roaring power of Mother Nature.
Adventurous folks will be thrilled by the next waterfall inside the cliffs, which hides a magical, fairytale-like world. This is where we often encounter hidden people and other beings.
We continue past the famous volcano and glacier Eyjafjallajokull, which became famous for closing down air traffic in 2010.
We visit the newly opened Lava Center where we will learn everything about volcanoes and their immense powers and how they have and are still shaping Iceland.
Our next stop the stunning Skogafoss Waterfall – famous for its magic rainbows! So bring your camera!
Then it is time to go to the beach. Iceland’s most famous black volcanic beach: Reynisfjara Beach with its basalt formations and columns that have inspired many landmarks like Hallgrims Church, Harpa music hall and our National Theatre. This is also the summer-home of puffins and thousands of other birds, which we will spot flying above our heads.

“A Must do in Iceland!”
5 of 5 stars
A lot of what makes Goecco so incredible has already been said, and it is all true. It didn’t feel like a tour, it felt like heading out on an adventure with new friends. I never thought I’d be singing the Banana Boat Song overlooking a glacial lagoon at dawn, but I did–the tour had that feel of spontaneous fun the entire way.
We did the two days Glacial Lagoon/South Shore tour, and it was hands-down the best part of a week in Iceland (including finding a Reykjavik bar pouring free drinks for two hours).
Our guide, Teitur, was incredibly knowledgeable but was as enthusiastic as though he were seeing everything for the first time. We pulled off the road to find secret caves, hike through the lava fields, run to a sea cave, and much, much more. My only regret is that I didn’t contact Goecco and say “I have six days in Iceland–just take me where you think I should go.”

“Amazing Private Tour of South Iceland”
We would give Goecco and our tour guide Atli 6 stars if we could for our fabulous private tour of South Iceland. Understanding that a private tour is not for everyone, we still think the value was incredible as we did so many things we never otherwise would have or could have without the flexibility of being on our own, combined with our guide Atli’s enthusiasm to show us every nook and cranny the South coast has to offer.
We saw all the popular tourist sites mentioned on
Most important to the experience was our guide Atli, who went out of his way time and time again to share the beauty and culture of Iceland with us every step of the way. “No” was not in his vocabulary and even the little things he did

To those of you reading this review. If you haven’t yet, flip for the private/semi-private tours. The personal attention and relaxing conditions are SSSSSOOOOO very much better than the monstrous public tours…. miss the huge crowds at the sites, the
