The piercing blue chunks of ice floating in the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon are quite a spectacular sight. In this tour you´ll travel by bus from Reykjavík. You´ll go, bright and early, along the south coast of Iceland and all the way to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon beneath Vatnajökull Glacier. The south coast in itself is a wonderful route and you´ll see many other wonders of nature along the way. It's a long tour but we´ll have you back around 21:00 - 22:00.
The tour: Well, the great thing about this tour is that you´ll see everything that's in the South Coast tour but then go much further. We pick you up in Reykjavík and head out to see Seljalandsfoss waterfall with a short stop in Hvolsvöllur for a bathroom / snack break. Seljalandsfoss is very special because you can walk behind it (rain coats recommended). After that we´ll go see another waterfall; Skógafoss. It's a magnificent waterfall and you can walk up a path to see it from above. We´ll drive to the black sand beach, Reynisfjara where you can see the Reynisdrangar rock formations after you see Dyrhólaey. We´ll stop in Vík for lunch. After lunch we´ll go to Skaftafell with a short stop first at Kirkjubæjarklaustur. Then, finally we go to see the magnificent Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon! You´ll have plenty of time to explore the area and go on the boat ride (summer only), and after that we´ll head back to Reykjavík with short bathroom / snack stops along the way. In the winter time we´ll hunt the northern lights! On the drive home you´ll be glad that our buses have free wifi so you can post pictures and videos from the tour. Of course, this is a guided tour so you´ll have the luxury of a knowledgeable guide that will tell you everything about the sites and interesting things along the way.
Please note that for this trip we require a minimum number of 6 adult participants in order to operate. We have to reserve the right to alter, delay or cancel (hopefully not) any tour due to weather or any other unsafe conditions for your safety. We´ll always try our best to fit you in another tour or switch days if the minimum participant numbers are not reached.
