Guided Glacier Lagoon Tour
Travel far while leaving the planning and driving to the experts on this full-day tour from Reykjavik. Travel along Iceland's South Coast, taking in such dramatic sights as Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls and the black-sand beach of Reynisfjara, before arriving at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where (in summer) you embark on a short cruise. A small group size ensures personal attention from your guide.
What to Expect
After a morning pickup from your central Reykjavik hotel, meet your guide and small group and drive south in a minibus.

After a short stop in Hvolsvöllur, head for Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which offers the rare opportunity of walking behind the teeming water. At nearby Skógafoss waterfall, walk along the clifftop for a birds'-eye view of the falls.

Continuing along the South Coast, stop at the black-sand beach of Reynisfjara—an eerie sight—battered by North Atlantic waves and surrounded by basalt columns and jagged sea stacks.

Stop in Vík for lunch (own expense) before visiting Kirkjubaejarklaustur and the Svartifoss waterfall in Skaftafell National Park.

Your final destination is the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a wonderland of floating icebergs framed by snow-capped peaks. Visitors in the summer can take a boat trip across the lagoon to marvel at the icebergs firsthand.

Afterward, board the bus for the return journey to Reykjavík. Take advantage of the bus' free Wi-Fi to upload your photos from the day and, in winter, make an additional stop along the way to try to spot the northern lights.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your original departure point in central Reykjavik.

Good Glacier Tour

I really enjoyed this tour and thought it was very informative. I would not bring children on this trip as it seems a little bit dangerous to me. You will be on a small boat in a lagoon with icebergs all around you (15% of...More

Beautiful scenery but very long tour

The scenery was breathtaking and lots to see. The whole trip was over 15 hours long. Mostly driving time seeing things fly by. Worth seeing all of these destinations, but knowing now the distance and hours, I might have done it as an overnight. We...More

Trip cancelled very late

I was looking forward to going on this particular trip. Due to the low number of people, they cancelled the trip. This is completely understandable however they cancelled it the night before and it was too late to organise anything else. Rather stick to the...More
