Journey down to the glacier lagoon (Jökulsárlón) for a south coast trip with a twist
This experience will see you travel along the stunning shores of the North Atlantic sea . From Reykjavik to the village of Vik, before setting off to Iceland's largest glacier called Vatnajökull.
You will have plenty of time to explore and witness to the stunning visuals of the glacier lagoon called Jökulsárlón.
Your day of south coast adventuring begins with pick up in Reykjavik. Pick up is included in your price so just let us know where you are staying or where your nearest pick up point is and we will come to fetch you.
We then begin our long voyage along the southern coast of Iceland to the amazing glacier lagoon where there will be options to see the lagoon from the icy shore, journey out onto the water on a boat*, learn more about the area at the visitor centre or head down to the diamond beach to watch the crumbling ice journey outward to sea.
After the visit to the lagoon we will head back to the city but not before taking time to stop off at the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. The latter of which you can walk behind!
*Weather and time of year dependant, boat trips also incur an additional cost payable on the bus
This area is a large glacial lake in the south east of Iceland. Jökulsárlón has been a setting for four Hollywood movies: A View to a Kill, Die Another Day, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and Batman Begins, as well as the reality TV series Amazing Race.
Skógafoss is a mighty, 65m tall waterfall along the southern coast. The view from the top is almost legendary for the amazing contrast in landscapes it offers you.
Seljalandsfoss is the second waterfall visited as we travel back to the city and this one holds a special surprise, a pathway that leads behind the waterfall offering a very special view.
Pick-up starts early so please be ready at your pick up point with your voucher, either in digital or printed form.
Dress appropriately for the weather baring in mind that the area at Seljalandsfoss can sometimes be wet. It is also recommended you wear comfortable shoes.
You will be traveling in a coach that holds approximately 40 people but is very spacious and comfortable. There is not a bathroom on the bus but there will be plenty of stops where facilities can be used. The bus offers free wifi and a USB charging port.
This tour is 14 hours long including travel time and the time you spend at each location. You spend at least 30 minutes at the major stops (with a longer stop at the lagoon) giving you plenty of time to enjoy the nature and snap some photos.
