Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik at the scheduled time.

    On this tour, you’ll be heading towards south of Iceland for a full day excursion uncovering some of the most iconic Icelandic beauties like glaciers, icebergs and waterfalls.

    Up first will be Jökulsárlón or the Glacier Lagoon, a unique natural formation that is located in the Skaftafell National Park. Steal a moment from your tour to admire the tranquil atmosphere and the drifting icebergs.

    Take your Iceland journey to the next level by upgrading your tour to include an amazing boat ride! Feel one with nature as you cruise down the blue glacial waters on a 30-minute tour. You will have plenty of time to enjoy and explore this lagoon that branches from Breiðamerkurjökull, a sub-outlet of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull.

    After spending some quality time at the largest and the deepest glacier lagoon in Iceland, the tour will be taking you to  the most famous waterfalls of the island.  Seljalandsfoss is also well-known for its unique feature. You can walk behind to the other side of the fall and catch a stunning view! Both the waterfalls also appear in Justin Bieber’s video song I’ll Show You.

    Your tour will come to an end at the village of Vik. Situated on the southern most tip of Iceland, Vik is famous for its beach with black pebbles and beautiful basalt column formations. If the weather is favourable, you might also enjoy a stunning view of the active Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

    After the tour, you will be dropped back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.
