About the Tour

Tour Description

On this tour, you’ll be taken to the famous South Coast. Along the shore, you’ll get to see the two waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, and the famous Black Sand Beach. You’ll also visit the stunning Glacier Lagoon Jökulsárlón in Vatnajökull National Park, where you’ll also get the chance to explore Europe’s largest glacier and enter a blue ice cave. And if nature allows, you’ll get a view of the magnificent Northern Lights at night.

Day 1

On the morning of the tour, we will start our adventure at 8am in Reykjavík. Once everyone boards the minibus, we will start our adventure to the beautiful South Coast. We will stop near some of the most beautiful places on the way, have lunch, dinner, and will check-in for a good night sleep at a hotel (included in the price).

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Upon arrival you will enjoy the powerful theatrics of Seljalandsfoss. Bring a raincoat and you’ll be able to make the short hike behind the falls. The scene behind the fall and the trembling ground from the power of the falling water makes for an automatic photo blockbuster!

Skógafoss Waterfall

Further east along the coast is Skógafoss waterfall. Skógafoss is an incredibly picturesque sight: tucked in a little gorge, the river Skógá tumbles down a 60 meters cliff before continuing down the landscape towards the Atlantic Ocean. Alongside the gorge, a staircase can take you to the shelf above the waterfall for stunning views.

Northern Lights Hunting

Arriving at our hotel in the Southeast, you will then meet your guide after dinner for further information about the Northern Lights, weather and Aurora forecast and a good spot to look at them. If the sky is clear and the forecast is good, we can hope for the magic to begin.

Day 2

Expect a lot of adventures on the second day! Glacier hiking, Ice Caving, Boat Tour, and so much more!

Skaftafell Blue Ice Cave

You will first visit the newly formed ice cave on the largest glacier in Iceland – Vatnajökull glacier.

Your activity will start at Skaftafell terminal, where you will put on glacier equipment.

You will then continue with an exciting hike on the Falljökull glacier, where you find breathtaking ice formations, moulins, crevasses and more. You will find the naturally formed Skaftafell Blue Ice Cave after a short hike.

Jökulsárlón: the Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón is a 200m deep glacier water lagoon fed by the melting of Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull. Enormous icebergs also fall from Breiðamerkurjökull all year round so the lagoon is usually filled with ice blocks that floats South.

Diamond Beach

On the other side of the road, the icebergs from Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon float into the Atlantic Ocean where they are quickly thrown back to shore by the tide and winds. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice blocks in all shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight. The ice itself comes in all shades of white and blue forming beautiful contrasts.

Reynisfjara: the Black Sand Beach

We visit the Black Sand Beach of Reynisfjara where the Atlantic coastline presents massive waves hitting the unique basalt pillars in the cliffs above the sand. The cliffs of Dýrhólaey are seen in the distance. This area of the south is also a paradise for bird lovers, as puffins, razorbills and dozens of other species nest on top of these cliffs in the summertime.
