Itinerary

Day 1

We head out of the city and drive through the fertile farming grounds of the south, passing through small villages before we come to the first highlight of the day; Seljalandsfoss Waterfall. Here you will have an opportunity to walk behind this spectacular cascade and really experience the force of the water at first hand. Close by we find Skógafoss Waterfall where we also stop for a while to take in the scenery.

After the waterfalls, we go down to Reynisfjara black sand beach. With its basalt columns and the impressive rock formations, Reynisdrangar, rising from the ocean just of the coast, it is truly a magical place to visit.  We stop for lunch at the coastal village of Vík, before we start making our way further east to our accommodation place.

Overnight: Skaftafell Region

Day 2

We start the day at the picturesque Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. During the summer, you have the opportunity to take an amphibian boat ride between the icebergs. From the glacier lagoon, we make our way to Vatnajökull Glacier where we prepare for the glacier hike.
After the glacier hike, we start making our way back to Reykjavik. We will travel the same route as the day before, but don’t worry there will still be a lot of things to see and enjoy on the way.

Drop off: Your hotel / guesthouse in Reykjavik
