Overview
Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon—the largest of its kind in Iceland—borders the Vatnajökull National Park in the southeast of the country. On this tour, spin through the Icelandic countryside with your guide who drives and navigates, and enjoy spectacular views over the coastal scenery. Watch icebergs floating in the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and visit the Séljalandsfoss Waterfall—with round-trip travel from your Reykjavik hotel included.
What to Expect
Your full-day tour starts with morning pickup from your centrally located hotel in Reykjavik. Drive out of the city toward the southern shores of Iceland, and enjoy sweeping views over the black-sand beaches and dramatic rock formations with your guide at the wheel.

Head through the rugged Icelandic countryside to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon—the largest and deepest glacier lagoon in Iceland. On arrival, hop out of your vehicle and explore the landscape on foot.

Led by your guide, head straight to the best viewing spots and admire panoramic views over the lagoon’s floating icebergs and crystal-clear waters. Along the way, learn about the glaciers and rivers feeding the lagoon and gain insight into Iceland’s geography.

Next, visit the Séljalandsfoss Waterfall—one of southern Iceland’s top natural attractions. Walk behind Séljalandsdoss’ powerful torrent and marvel at the power of the cascading waters.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Reykjavik hotel.
