Highlights

  • Walk on the black sand beach of Reynisfjara
  • See the stunning Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach

Description

Depart from Rekjavik on a two day journey that will acquaint you with the natural wonders of Iceland's South Coast.  Day one begins with a drive from Reykjavik to visit four beautiful waterfalls: Gljufrabui, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. After making a stop for lunch, you will continue on to the well-known Sólheimajökull glacier for a unique 1.5 hour hike across the ice. From there, visit the world-famous Reynisfjara Beach and wander under basalt cliffs along the broad strip of jet black sand. Witness countless puffins, kittiwake, and fulmar hunting for fishes or taking off from nests set into the cliff face. At the end of the day, rest at the country guesthouse. Day two will bring you up close and personal with a majestic glacier lagoon. In the morning, stop at the Jökulsárlón, a stunning glacier lagoon filled with huge chunks of ice which crack off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Admire the icebergs that wash on shore and glimmer brilliantly against the vivid black sand and spot seals darting around icebergs that float out to sea. Next you will visit turf roofed church Hofskirkja and stunning Fjadrargljufur River Canyon. The canyon was formed a few thousand years ago during a glacial period, leaving a snaking river behind when the ice sheet retreated. After exploring the lagoon, you will be transported back to Reykjavik where you'll arrive around 9:30pm.
