Reisroute

2 Day South Coast, Ice Cave, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Tour (Shared Bathroom)

Day 1: The Grand South Coast & Northern Lights

Pick up is at 09:00 from your accommodation, or the Reykjavík meeting point you have chosen. Please note: picking everyone up can take up to 30 minutes, but you do have to be ready and waiting at 09:00.

This tour will take you south before continuing to the east as we whisk you away for two days of amazing adventure sightseeing. We drive towards the slowly rising sun on the way to our first stop, the very unusual Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, where you can actually walk behind the gracefully falling cascade! It is well worth getting a little damp for such an exciting experience. Our next highlight is another waterfall, Skógafoss, located at the foot of a very famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull. On a clear day, you will also get a great view of another volcano mountain glacier, Mýrdalsjokull. As we continue on, we come to Reynisfjara, a black beach where some fantastic sights, such as the picturesque basalt column formations and the famous Reynisdrangar peaks, will greet us. We will drive through the charming small town of Vík on our way to our accommodation. Throughout the entire day, you can expect to see breathtaking landscapes consisting of vast lava fields, waterfalls, black sands and glacier tongues. We will enjoy a relaxing evening, if the conditions are right we will hunt for those northern lights! The countryside close to Vatnajökull glacier, away from the city lights, is perfect for spotting this natural phenomenon.

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall
Skógafoss Waterfall
Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach
Villages of Vik
Northern lights (conditions permitting)

Accommodation:
One night in Adventure Hotel Hof (shared double/twin room with shared bathroom)

Day 2: Land of Ice

Today you will really get to know the glacier, venturing into the sparkling, blue/white world of an ice cave with a qualified guide, and visiting the extraordinary glacier lagoon, Jökulsárlón. Getting up close and personal with a vast glacial tongue of the great Vatnajökull glacier does not get any better than this!

The renowned Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon, made famous by several blockbuster movies including Batman Begins and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, to name just a couple, is a totally mind-blowing place. Splendid icebergs of amazing shapes, some incredibly large, have calved off the receding Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. They jostle one another in the huge lagoon before gliding on their surreal and stately journeys to the Atlantic ocean. Many of these natural ice sculptures are washed onto the nearby Diamond Beach, you will see them glittering like diamonds, as they rest on the dramatic coal blackness of the beach. Next, you go into the glacier with a qualified guide! We'll visit the fascinating Crystal Ice Cave during the winter season or the Katla Ice Cave during the summer season. New caves are formed each winter by the melt/freeze cycle of the glacier, they are always changing, both from year to year and within each winter. The journey into an ice cave will give photographers the most amazing opportunity to capture the shimmering blue light that passes through the glacial ice. Surprisingly deep shades of jewel blue will surround you, these tones are caused by ice compression, the way we perceive light and color, and the blueness can sometimes be intensified by algae. After visiting the ice cave we head towards Reykjavík. We will keep an eye out for the Northern Lights on our way back to the city and will make a short stop if conditions allow for it.

We return to Reykjavík around 21:00.
