Day One

The tour departs from Reykjavík at 08:00 in the morning. On day one, you will visit these stunning places.

Seljalandsfoss

The first stop is at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind and feel the vibrations of the water hitting the ground. Right next to it is the waterfall Gljúfrabúi which is hidden in a small gorge. To see the waterfall you have to balance over stones in the river.

Skógafoss

Prepare to meet the pearl of the south coast, Skógafoss waterfall. It is dropping 60 meters from a cliff and producing a lot of mist which makes beautiful rainbows in the sunshine. Try to warm up for the glacier by running up the 527 steps to the top!

Blue Ice Cave

You’ll go on an ice cave adventure, visiting the famous Blue Ice cave. The cave is only accessible in winter with a certified guide. You’ll be supplied with safety gear so you can safely visit this stunning natural attraction.

Glacier Hike

You’ll go on a glacier walk from the stunning Skaftafell. You’ll hike on a glacier outlet of Vatnajökull Glacier, Europe’s largest glacier. The glacier hike takes about 1,5 hours.

Northern Lights

If conditions are good, you’ll go out looking for the Northern Lights in the evening. Your guide will tell you all about these elusive lights before heading out on the northern lights hunt!

Day Two

Before heading back to Reykjavík there are still plenty of sights yet to be discovered. You will visit these on your way back to Reykjavík.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

This morning you’ll see the famous Glacier Lagoon, a 250m deep glacial lake fed by Europe’s biggest glacier with enormous icebergs. You can enjoy a walk along the shore of the lake and enjoy wonderful views of the icebergs and feel the absolute silence of Icelandic nature. 

Diamond Beach

Just on the other side of the road the icebergs are floating into the Atlantic ocean and are thrown back to shore by weather and tides. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice rocks in uncountable shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight. Sometimes even some blue icebergs are standing at this beach and give opportunities for spectacular pictures.

Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach

You’ll visit the black sand beach of Reynisfjara where big waves are hitting the shore. You can see basalt columns in the cliffs, rock pillars in the water and the cliffs of Dyrhólaey in the distance. But this beach is also a paradise for bird lovers because puffins are nesting on top of the rocks in the summertime from June to August.
