Jewels of the South | Minibus to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

June - Oct. Mon, Wed, Fri About 14 hours Your hotel / Guesthouse in Reykjavík Easy

On this minibus tour you will see the most beautiful areas of the country the South Coast, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, and Diamond Beach.

Final destination is the stunning glacier lagoon where you will be able to see blue icebergs and exciting wildlife, but before we will stop at the most famous sights in the South Coast.

The adventure begins when we pick you up in Reykjavik in a small and comfortable minibus. As we’re approaching the South, we will arrive in beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Waterproof clothing or a raincoat are smart choices as this waterfall is famous for being accessible to see from behind it and you will be able to walk around it. It is a once in a lifetime experience to observe a curtain of falling springwater from behind.

Next stop is Skógafoss waterfall. The view from below in magnificent as it is wider than its sister Seljalandsfoss. The land below the cascade is flat, making it possible to walk right up to the wall of water. Make sure you play the game of going all the way up there and count the steps!

Continuing with this remarkable adventure, we will go the village of Vík for lunch. This beautiful place Vík lies on the banks of a beautiful black sand beach where the enormous Reynisdrangar rock stacks emerge of the ocean as huge mystical creatures.

The journey proceeds as we approach Skaftafell Nature Reserve to the stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Once we are, we will be able to see the magnificence of the water in all forms, the massive blue and white icebergs floating gloriously on the lagoon clear water.

Just across the road, you will be able to walk on a beach of diamonds, that is, a beach that has clear ice rocks laying all over as the most beautiful winter art installation you can imagine.

In the summertime, we can even observe it from a closer angle and get a nice view of the icebergs with the sun reflecting on the ice. And during wintertime, we will hunt the northern lights on your drive back to Reykjavík.

After a nice day exploring all the best of the South and East, you will be able to relax in our comfortable minibus. Our nice and knowledgeable guides will be instructing you with all the relevant information regarding history of all the places and a few fun facts and funny stories. We offer the service of free Wi-Fi on board and a nice playlist of Icelandic music for this long drive, so fun is guaranteed at all times! We will make along the way to grab food before arrival in Reykjavík.
