2-Day South Iceland from Reykjavik including Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
Discover Iceland’s magnificent south coast with ease on a 2-day tour from Reykjavik, designed for lovers of the outdoors. Visit Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, stroll along the black-sand beaches at Reynisfjara,  embark on a glacier hike at Virkisjolull, and take a boat tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Overnight accommodation,  guided tours, and hotel pickup and drop-off in Reykjavik are included on this small-group tour, limited to 15 people.
What to Expect

Day One
After a morning Reykjavk pick up, you’ll head out of the city towards your first stop, Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Seljalandsfoss is better known for the fact that you can walk behind the magnificent cascade offering you the opportunity to enjoy this stunning waterfall from both sides. 

Next on the agenda is Skogafoss waterfall, followed by the black sand beach of Reynisfjara with its basalt columns and famous Reynisdrangar pillars. Skogafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, located just of road no. 1 offering breathtaking views. Feel the true power of mother nature as you walk up to the magnificent fall before enjoying all that the unique black sand beach of Reynisfjara has to offer. 

After having a stroll along the shore of Reynisfjara beach you will follow your guide to your accommodation for the night. For the remainder of the journey to your accommodation, you’ll travel through immense lava fields covered with green moss and surrounded by glaciers and mountains.

Day Two
Your second day starts with a visit to the stunning glacier lagoon of Jokulsarlon. At Jokulsarlon, you’ll have the chance to join an amphibian boat tour during the summer for a small fee, at other times you will be able to explore the environment on your own before we make our way to Europe's largest glacier for a glacier hiking adventure. Admire the magical ice bergs as they float around the lagoon creating the perfect photo spot. 

Upon arrival to Skaftafell National Park you will meet your certified glacier guide. Before your glacier adventure the guide will provide you with a safety briefing and ensure you know how to use the glacier hiking gear provided. Now there is nothing left but to approach the mighty glacier where you will spend around an hour on the ice, encountering crevasses, ice falls and the ancient blue ice. 

After the glacier hike, set off on your return journey to Reykjavik where your 2 day south coast adventure tour concludes.

We stayed at Smyrlabjorg Hotel. The place is nice, but kind in the middle of nowhere. I made a review here at tripadvisor about the hotel.
