Would you like to experience South Coast and Glacier Lagoon of Iceland with no rush? Then this tour is exactly what you need. Instead of covering the 800km distance in one day we explore all the best what South Coast has to offer in two days.
Pick up from your accommodation in Reykjavik or nearby.
We will cover magical south coast. First stop will be Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, yes that’s the one where you can walk around it. Few hundred meters away from Seljalandsfoss, there is a Gljúfrabúi waterfall hidden inside the mountain to which our guide will give you directions.
Next stop is another great waterfall Skógarfoss (60m/ 197ft high), you can climb the stairs to see this beauty from above. There is the myth that trolls hid the treasure behind the fall, do you dare to go around and find it? Continuing with the drive, we are going to visit Dyrhólaey arch, it is a tiny peninsula, where you will have a great view of the area.
Not far away from Dyrhólaey, we visit Reynisfjara – world-famous black sand beach with a basal column cave. In the evening, we might also have a chance to see the northern lights here as there is no light pollution around.
Overnight stay in Kirkjubæjarklaustur or Vík.
Driving distance: 250 km
Dyrhólaey, Reynisfjara – world-famous black sand beach with a basal column cave.
Prepare yourself for a long day tour as we are going to do a lot of driving, we might need to start early in the morning in order to take advantage of daylight to see more places.
We will start the day by visiting magnificent Jökulsárlón – Glacier Lagoon where you will have a close look at the melting icebergs moving towards the ocean. After that, we will do a short drive to see the Diamond Beach, where the Icebergs have been washed back to shore.
Today we are going to take part in one activity, it’s an Ice Caving tour. We are going to visit the blue ice cave. This activity will take up 2-3 hours then we continue to see other sights before heading back to the city.
