What you'll experience.
Join this 2 Day South Coast Tour along Iceland’s south coast to discover its stunning glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, glacier lagoon, 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.
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 at Sólheimajökull glacier. Our glacier guides are professionals and they will provide you all safety equipment needed for the Glacier Hike (crampons, ice axes, etc) and teach you how to use them in a correct way.
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.

You will start your adventure with a visit to the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser known, more secret waterfalls Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss. Your guide will make a stop where guests can buy lunch.
As you continue the bus will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where you'll get to walk on a Glacier for about 1,5 hours and have a closer look at all the wonders of Sólheimajökull 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.
You will be staying overnight in a Nicehostel Seljaland, a very cosy accommodation close to the famous Seljalandsfoss.
Today, you will take a close look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. After a stop in the lovely village of Vik you'll drive to the East where you will visit the waterfall Foss á Síðu and the National park in Skaftafell. Your guide will make a stop there so you can buy lunch.
Afterwards you'll 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 the bus will head back towards Reykjavik where we estimate to arrive around 21:15 (09:15pm).
