Tours and Activities

There are many wonderful things to see and do in the South of Iceland. Make sure you do not miss out on anything!

This is a superb choice. It’s away from the ring road just enough to feel somewhat off the “tourist track” yet very accessible to Hella for any additional services you might need. This is the perfect setting for relaxing and exploring this lovely area, which is different from a lot of the rest of Iceland. Your hosts at Hotel Vos are some of the nicest people I’ve met anywhere in the world, let alone just Iceland. I can’t wait to return! Highly recommended!
