Full description

Explore the dramatic landscapes of the south of Iceland on a full-day sightseeing tour by bus. Go to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon outlet of the largest glacier in Europe, leaning about its history and formation from your local guide.

Following a pickup from your hotel in Reykjavik, transfer to the southern coast and the dramatic Glacier Lagoon. Enjoy plenty of time to see the floating icebergs and enjoy the stunning scenery.

During the season, make sure to reserve your ticket to the boat cruise on the Jökulsárlón and experience the unique Glacier Lagoon spectacle up close. When you prebook, your place is guaranteed.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is Iceland’s largest and deepest glacier lagoon. It branches from Breidamerkurjokull, an outlet glacier of Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest glacier.

Return to Reykjavik, stopping at the gorgeous waterfall Seljalandsfoss. You will visit the Diamond beach with black sand, and there will be an additional stop in Iceland's southernmost village at Vík for dinner.

Great trip. Weather was horrendous on this day. Nothing on Diamnod Beach, which was disappointing,but the glacier lagoon was great. On the way back to Vik there was a break in the weather and our guide (Simon) took us to a waterfall, which was the highlight of the day for me.

The trip was great and we had a lot of stops on points of interest. The tour itself is really long (~15 hours) due to the travel distance. The sights are beautiful and definitely worth to visit. We got a hotel pick-up at 7 AM, and had a quick stop realitvely early so that everyone could grab a breakfast, drink a coffee, etc, enough time for everything. You drive out of town during sunrise (mid-January), which is beautiful even from the bus, and you start going back at sunset, and visit one of the waterfalls that is lit up during the night.
