Full description

Join a guided day trip from Reykjavik to the glacial lagoon of Jokulsarlon in southeastern Iceland. Visit other iconic natural landmarks such as the Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls on the way. Discover a stretch of black sand at Reynisfjara Beach and Diamond Beach on the south coast.

Start your day of adventure with a pickup from one of the designated points in the Reykjavik downtown area. Make your way to the first stop, the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of the few waterfalls in Iceland that you can walk behind. Next up is the powerful Skogafoss waterfall, nestled in the peaceful area of Skogar. Explore the largest waterfalls in Iceland surrounded by beautiful scenery. Follow the trail on the right side of the waterfall for a chance to view it from several angles.

Then, visit the fishing village of Vik and make a stop for lunch (at your own expense). After your meal, continue to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, a scenic sight that you might recall from various Hollywood movies. See majestic icebergs floating in the lagoon at Jokulsarlon.

You can pay for a boat ride (optional) at the lagoon if you'd like to get closer to the icebergs. A short walk away from the lagoon lies Diamond Beach. See diamond-like icebergs on the black volcanic beach. After some exploration, it’s time for dinner at Skaftafell (at your own expense). If visiting in the summer, make use of the long daylight hours and stop by the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach on your way back to Reykjavik. Known for the amazing scenery all around, most notably the unique basalt column formations, Reynisfjara is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Iceland.

Очень понравилась экскурсия с замечательным гидом- Марией и Петром. Все было замечательно. Успели все! И приехали в 23 .00 уже в Рейкявик! Мария- просто отличный гид и водитель как говорится от Бога! Была опасная дорога а она прекрасно справлялась и при этом еще рассказывала об Исландии. Все отлично! Рекомендую всем! СПАСИБО Мария!Это запомнится на всю жизнь!

Good guides who told a lot. (Maria and Arthur?). However, very bad places in the back of the bus. These 4 places should not be sold during such a long drive. Little room and window too low (because these seats were higher), so we got neck pain and couldn't even see things on the other side. Unfortunately! Furthermore, well arranged.

Varied tour in the south of Iceland

Much in one day seen from the south coast of Iceland. At Skogafoss too little time to go up the mountain to the observation deck. At the other stations there was enough time. The small bus had a 2 - 1 seating. However in the last row 4 seats were next to each other. For about 12 hours bus ride way too narrow. Although the guide place was free next to the bus driver, nobody was allowed to sit there for insurance reasons. Too bad, that would have made sitting in the last row more comfortable. Other than that, it was a great tour!
