Hi all! I’m back to share more about my Iceland adventures! I told you about my Bachelorette Party in Iceland and our wonderful experience at the Blue Lagoon. The next day we went out on a tour of the southern coast of Iceland through Sterna Travel and it was INCREDIBLE! This is in no way a sponsored post, but I loved the tour so much I wanted to share with everyone! You can check out the tour at the link here. I will admit it’s a long tour at 10 hours, but you get to see so many amazing sights. My friends and I all really enjoyed the tour, even the few who didn’t think they’d be interested in a long tour bus ride. We saw the breathtaking Skogafoss waterfall, walked along the black sand beaches with crashing tides in Vik, touched a glacier, and even walked behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall!

Our first stop was at Skogafoss and it did not disappoint! If you get lucky enough to get a glimmer of a rainbow, be sure to snap a photo quickly because it will disappear just as fast as it came. Also, you have a unique opportunity here to climb the steep steps to get a view overlooking the waterfall. It is a bit of a workout, but I recommend taking that hike to get the magnificent view from above!

The next stop was the breathtaking black sand beaches of Vik. This place is spectacular! Soak in the beautiful views, but be careful not to get to close to the water. The waves come crashing in far up the beach with a very strong undertow.

At the next stop, we got to walk right up to a glacier! It was amazing to see!

Last but certainly not least, was Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The best part of this stop is you can actually walk behind the waterfall for a unique view! Prepare to leave drenched, but it’s definitely worth it for the photo op!

I highly recommend seeing the Southern Coast of Iceland, either by tour company or if you’re renting a car. There are many beautiful sights to be seen!

Happy Travels!
