Reykjavik: Glacier Lagoon and South Coast Small Group Tour

1. Reykjavik: Glacier Lagoon and South Coast Small Group Tour

Your day will begin as you are picked up from Reykjavik, at which point you will be whisked away down the picturesque south coast. You will pass gorgeous meadows, rugged coastlines, and traditional farmsteads on the way. You will begin with a visit to the 60-meter-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, considered a staple stop for sightseeing trips down the coast. You will then make a refreshment stop at the southernmost village of Iceland, VikiMyrdal. Continuing along the south towards the east, you’ll be amazed as the scenery transforms from rich farmlands and dramatic mountains to darkened outwash plains, black deserts and staggering areas of natural elevation. If the conditions allow, you can also pay a visit to the stunning river canyon of Fjadrargljufur. Finally, you will reach the highlight of the day, Jokulsarlon, where you will be immediately taken within its ethereal ambience, glittering icebergs, incredible panoramic views, and lively wildlife. If you're lucky, you will also be able to witness the curious seals and dive-bombing Arctic Skuas. You will also be able to walk between the icebergs on the so-called “Diamond” or “Crystal” Beach. This is a black sand beach at the coastline near the glacier lagoon, and very often, there are many icebergs washed up on to the beach which makes for a spectacular view. On the way back you will stop to look at an old turf church, which coincidentally resemble "hobbit holes", which you will discover more about on your tour.

Beautiful walk of almost 600 km on dream landscapes. Wonderful driver, real walking encyclopedia !!! If it had to be done again… YES !!!

You have to see the glacier lagoon and the diamond beach. The guide also had a lot of information about landscapes and people.

Guide was excellent. Learned so much history and personal experiences because he had lived there for many years.
