20 Fascinating Things to Do in South Iceland You Don't Want to Miss

South Iceland 

South Iceland is a treasure trove of natural wonders. The South Coast makes for the perfect road trip because there are so many amazing things to see close together.

From awe-inspiring waterfalls to beautiful, dramatic black sand beaches, you’re in for a special taste of all the beauty Iceland’s nature has to offer.

The 200-foot Seljalandsfoss waterfall is right off Route 1 (Ring Road) on the South Coast of Iceland. There is no hiking required to see this waterfall. It is just a short walk from the parking lot.


Once inside, you’ll be greeted with a beautiful waterfall that looks as if it’s pouring through a skylight in nature’s ceiling.



Right next door to Skogafoss is the waterfall Kvernufoss. This is one of South Iceland’s less frequented gems.


Right on the edge of the highlands in South Iceland sits Haifoss, an impressive 400-foot waterfall. It is one of the highest waterfalls in Iceland.
