South Coast and Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon 2 day tour
On day one we strike out from Reykjavik along the south shore where we'll see Mount Hengill volcano, the lush farmlands of Floi area and the Þjorsa river. We'll also see the infamous Eyjafjallajokull, whose eruption shut down translatantic air traffic, Skogafoss waterfall, Myrdalsjokull glacier with Katla volcano underneath the icecap and the endless plains of black sand at Skeidararsandur.
From Skaftafell you journey to Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon located at the end of Breidamerkurjokull glacier that branching the great Vatnajokull glacier. With a depth of around 250 metres, this roughly 18 square kilometre lagoon is packed with huge pieces of ice that have broken loose from the glacier, silently floating towards the sea.
After you have enjoyed the dramatic scenery of Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon the course is set for a nearby accommodation where where we will enjoy dinner (dinner is not included in tour price) and relax for the remainder of the evening.
During winter time, if the weather is good and the skies clear, you might be able to experience the amazing northern lights flickering in the sky.
After breakfast on day two, you get to spend some time at Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon and also take a walk by the lagoon and explore the black sand shores where seals are commonly seen basking.
Returning west towards Reykjavik we stop at more attractions on the way, including the charming village of Vik and Seljalandsfoss, arguably Iceland's most picturesque waterfall. Seljalandsfoss presents the perfect opportunity to walk behind a waterfall and feel the cool mist of water on your face.
