South Coast & Jökulsárlón / Vatnajökull
SEE THE ITINERARY HERE BELOW
We head out of the city and drive through the fertile farming grounds of the South, passing through small villages before we come to the first highlight of the day; Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
Here you will have an opportunity to walk behind its spectacular cascade and really experience the force of the water at first hand.
Close by we find Skógafoss waterfall where we also stop for a while to take in the scenery.
After the waterfalls, we go down to Reynisfjara black sand beach. With its basalt columns and the impressive rock formations, Reynisdrangar rising from the ocean just of the coast, it is truly a magical place to visit.
We stop for lunch at the coastal village of Vík, before we start making our way further East.
We start the day at the picturesque Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
During the summer, you have the opportunity to take a boat ride between the icebergs but in other seasons you can use your time here to take in the scenery and get some great photos.
From the glacier lagoon, we make our way to Vatnajökull glacier where we prepare for the glacier hike.
Our skilled guides will go over all safety features and equipment before we set foot on the glacier.
Vikisjökull is an outlet glacier Vatnajökull Europe’s biggest ice cap.
On our journey, we will come across incredible ice formations, crevasses and the impressive ice fall, where we will see up close how the ancient ice stoically falls hundreds of meters off the mountain top.
After the glacier hike, we start making our way back to Reykjavik.
We will travel the same route as the day before, but don’t worry there will still be a lot of things to see and enjoy on the way.
We will drop you up at your accommodation in Reykjavik.
