Tour description

 

Best known as Jökulsárlón in Icelandic, this Glacier Lagoon is one of the country’s most iconic attractions. Famously framed in the background by the impressive Vatnajökull Icecap, the lagoon features an ever-changing canvas of icebergs freshly carved from the serrated edge of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier tongue. The icebergs float gently and silently in the fresh blue water, but every now and then the silence is interrupted with an almighty crash as the bergs collapse and collide. If you stay long enough, you see them get caught in the stream of the natural river, taken under the bridge and delivered into the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean.

south shore iceland tour

The South Coast of Iceland is known as one of the most beautiful areas with the most stunning places including the largest Glacier and the biggest (dormant) volcanoes in Iceland.

During this two day tour we will visit waterfalls Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, the black sand beach Reynisfjara, the small town of Vik and the beautiful canyon Fjadrargljufur.

The second day we will explore amazing ice formations at Vatnajokull Icecap, hike up the Glacier of Vatnajokull with astonishing view of the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon from the glacier side of the Lagoon!! During Winter it will be possible to visit the beautiful Kingdom of Blue Ice Caves situated under the Biggest Glacier in Europe. These are fantastic, colourful (blue, yellow, greenish, black, gray) Ice formations underneath the Glacier! Definitely our favourite place in Iceland!!!

We will be able to spot seals in Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and large ice formations from the same lagoon slowly moving to the nearby beach which is also called ‘Diamond Beach’ because of the many shiny ice crystal formations that are swept on the black beach.

During winter months we will also “hunt” for the Northern Lights, during summer you will experience the setting of midnight sun.

The tour includes: hotel and fantastic breakfast at the very nice Skaftafell hotel, with comfortable quiet rooms and a great restaurant.

Detailed daily plan of the trip:

south shore waterfalls iceland

Day 1

After we pick you up we will leave Reykjavik and drive towards the South to make a first stop at the amazing Seljalandsfoss waterfall: Seljalandsfoss is majestic enough from the front to make your jaw drop, but the opportunity to view the water falling from behind the waterfall is so thrilling you don’t even realise (until you’re back out front) that you should’ve brought your waterproof clothing along! Next stop during our trip will be the Skogar –  best known for its attractive 60m (197 ft) tall Skógafoss waterfall which is clearly visible from the road, this area has much to offer. On a sunny day, the waterfall makes rather splendid rainbows where visitors can frame some excellent shots. By the side of the falls, a staircase winds all the way up to a top made of grassy slopes; with plenty of spots overlooking the sensational south coast.

From here we drive to the cliffs of Dyrholaey and Reynisfjara – the amazing black and white beach with basalt columns. The next stop is at VIK for a lunch break. After lunch we will discover magic canyon formations- Fjadrargljufur. Driving further we will admire glaciers and mountains (we will make a stop at the Svinafellsjokull glacier tongue) and lava fields on the road to Jokulsarlon.

We will spend the night at the comfortable and quiet  3 star hotel- Skaftafell, resting for another exciting day. All the rooms are modern with a private bathroom. Dinner at the restaurant of the hotel is recommendable. There is always enough choice to the fresh and delicious, Icelandic cuisine . During winter, if the condition are good ,we will go out to hunt for the Northern Lights.

Ice caves Iceland
