Join this tour along Iceland’s south coast to discover its stunning glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, strong rivers and waterfalls. You will also see an amazing black beach scattered with icebergs, next to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is where huge icebergs float in ice cold water and seals swim around them.

What to expect?

The highlights of the tour are a boat tour in Jokulsarlon the glacier lagoon in front of the biggest glacier in Europe which is located in the most amazing National park in Iceland AND a walk on blue ice in Solheimajokull.

The scenery and views from the Glacier is stunning and you see ice sculptures and the deep crevasses of the glacier in a very clear way.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - South Coast, Waterfalls and Glacier Hike

We start with visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui, Kvernufoss and Irafoss. We make a stop where guests can buy lunch.

As we continue we will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where we take a Glacier Hike for about 1,5 hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier.

A bit further is the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings.

We will be staying overnight in a Nicehostel Seljalands, a very cosy accommodation close to the famous Seljalandsfoss.

Day 2 - The amazing Glacier lagoon with boat ride and Skaftafell National park

Today, you will take a close look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. After a stop in the lovely village of Vik we drive to the Easth where we visit the waterfall Foss á Sidu and the National park in Skaftafell where we make a stop where guests can buy lunch.

Then we head to the amazing Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you will have a boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. The lagoon is full of huge chunks of ice which crack off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin. There is a good possibility of seeing seals swimming around the huge icebergs.

After enjoying this wonderful experience we head back in the afternoon towards Reykjavik where we estimate to arrive around 21:15 (09:15pm).
