Highlights of the tour:
Skógafoss – magnificent waterfall that also happened to be featured on Game of Thrones
Reynisfjara – black sand beach. Was rated one of the 10 most beautiful places worldwide.
Öræfi – “A no man’s land” surrounded by black sand deserts. After a while driving through Öræfi you’ll see Vatnajökull appear on the horizon.
Jökulsárlón – glacier lagoon and the deepest lake in Iceland.
Diamond Beach – close walk from Jökulsárlón. After parts of the icebergs float into the ocean, they find their way back to the black sand beach – creating this wonderful view.
Seljalandsfoss - It’s one of the most iconic spots on the Icelandic south coast. What is unique about it is that you can walk behind the water – to admire the cascade from every angle possible.
Your tour will start with pick-up directly from your accommodation in Reykjavík.After pick-up we will start our drive out of the city. In a short while, we will pass Hellisheiðavirkjun – the 8th largest geothermal power station in the world and the largest one in Iceland.
Our first stop is Skógafoss Waterfall. It is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the country and was even featured in Game of Thrones. The waterfall’s 60m drop will keep you speechless for sure. Your guide will tell you all about the hidden treasure chest behind the waterfall and with some luck, you will be the first one to find it.
Now it's time to hit the road again. After a short ride, we stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach. The beach was once rated as one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world and as soon as you put a foot on the beach, you will know why. Basalt columns and the well-known Reynisdrangar rock formations await you. Your guide will tell you all the interesting stories and sagas that are connected to this place.
The next stop is the Glacier Lagoon – Jökulsárlón. You’ll have time to walk around and enjoy the uniqueness that is there. The Glacier Lagoon is approximately 284 meters deep (932 ft) and during winter it’s filled with hundreds of seals.
Short walking distance from there, we’ll see the Diamond Beach.
Once we’re back in the bus, we’re making our way south - back in the direction of Reykjavik.
Our last stop will be the ever-popular Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall lays underneath the well-known Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that erupted in 2010. If conditions allow, we take a walk behind the waterfall’s curtain before paying a visit to its nearby cousin Gljúfrabúi, found hidden from view in the mountainside.
Gljúfrabúi (or Canyon Dweller) is a beautiful waterfall located at Hamragarðar in South Iceland, close to its better-known counterpart, Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It is one of the hidden gems of the South Coast, and thus an excellent spot for photographers and those seeking to admire nature in peace.
That will conclude the end of our tour and we'll start our drop-off in Reykjavík.
