Full description

Follow the south coast of Iceland to the glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón, on a full-day tour from Reykjavik. Visit the Seljalandsfoss waterfall and learn about the incredible landscapes from your guide. Stay connected with free WIFI aboard the climate-controlled bus. Depart from Reykjavik in an air-conditioned bus and pass charming villages as well as Skaftafell National Park on your way to the Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss waterfalls. Look out for Iceland’s biggest volcano, Öræfajökull glacier. After arriving at the lagoon, enjoy some time to view this stunning area. Take a walk along the shore and admire the icebergs. During the summer season, amphibian boat tours on the lagoon are available at an extra cost (payable onsite). Jökulsárlón started to form in the early nineteen twenties and is getting bigger every year.

The tour was well organized. Half of our group couldn't join but the staff was very cooperative. It is a long tour that includes travel time of about 10 hours and about 4 hours of sightseeing. Bus was comfortable and itinerary was good. Price is very very good for the tour.

One of the best trips ever I've taken in Iceland. Sure it's a long day, lot of travelling in the bus, but every destination was breathtaking and we had so much of information from our Guide Ester, I got to know so much about volcanoes and how they fuel the country etc. You will need waterproof shoes as it involves a lot of waterfall experiences along the way. Also, you can pay additional 45 euros on the spot at Glacier Lagoon for taking an additional Boat trip, which was totally worth it. We learn a bit about glaciers but its fascinating to see them really close by. The whole route was very scenic. we had decent food stops and bathroom stops at Gas stations. Good group too. comfortable Buses with charging facilities as its very useful. Will recommend 100 percent. Please bring windshield jackets, warm clothing and waterproof pants and shoes if possible. The pickup and drop was very smooth too.

Overall excellent trip with sun coming out exactly when we were at Jokulsarlon. Our guide Esther was a great coach. She gave a ton of information with stories,tidbits and kept time really well. Highly encourage anyone to take this trip. Would love additional 15 mins at Diamond beach but already trip is 14 hours and so understand time constraints.
