If you have 3 days to spend in Iceland you can get a great feel for the landscape, natural attractions and culture by sticking to Iceland’s diverse south coast and charming capital city. Below are all of the south coast and Reykjavík´s most beloved sites as well as a 3 day itinerary so that you can fit them all in!
It is possible to join a south coast tour if you prefer to go with a group instead of self driving or are worried about driving in Iceland in the winter. This is also a great option for those who don’t have a valid driver’s license or are looking to meet fellow travellers along the way.
Seljalandsfoss & Gljúfrabúi
You will start your journey by heading east on road 1 (the Ring Road) towards the south coast. The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall which has a magnificent 60m (197ft) drop. The Seljalands river which feeds Seljalandsfoss originates from the Eyjafjallajökull glacier which lies further east. You may recognize this famous waterfall from Justin Bieber’s ‘I'll Show You’ music video where he is seen running on the path behind the waterfall.
