One not to miss!It's a long and tricky drive from Reykjavik, especially in ice, so defo recommend a tour. The guide (Roman) and driver (Oli) FANTASTIC! Fun, knowledgeable, caring and professional. Got picked up from a location suited to us at 7.30am, saw more than was listed in itinary.. and there was plenty of toilet and stretching leg breaks. Including stops at vik and saw the black sand beach, and we made an additional stop as we were on good time so we could see the destroyed bridge from the volcanic flood. Even stopped for us to see the northern lights on the way back (which isn't part of this tour) loved every minutePlenty of time at each location for both photos and toilet breaks. Never felt rushed. Got back to Reykjavik about half 10pm.#trishanddavedoiceland2019

Tour was a long day but with Simon as our guide, it was fun and informative. He is top notch and knows how to make the day fun. He deserves a raise 😊

A very long day but well worth it as you see so much. The glacier lagoon and "diamond beach" are stunning.

This day trip to the South Coast was breathtaking. The stops were well planned and we were given more than enough time to see all that needed to be seen

ITINERARY

On this tour, you will travel along South Iceland's coast on the narrow strip of lush farmland that cuts between mountains, glaciers and the vast Atlantic Ocean. The route is lined with natural treasures including the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, views of Skaftafell National Park, and Vatnajökull glacier to name but a few.

Passing the southern edge of the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier roughly midway between Reykjavik and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, offering magnificent views of glaciers, rivers and endless plains of sand. Vatnajökull Glacier National Park stretches over an area of 14.000 square km, or roughly 10 times the size of London.

When you think nothing can beat the scenery, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon opens up before your eyes and takes your breath away. Packed with icebergs in various shades of white and blue the lagoon‘s extraordinary scenery is popular with travelers, photographers, and filmmakers from all over the world.

Specialized amphibious vehicles take visitors out onto the lagoon sailing among the enormous chunks of ice. Various bird species can be seen feeding in and around the lagoon and seals are a fairly common sight both at the mouth of the lagoon and at the seaside beach.
