Jökulsarlon glacier lagoon and Iceland south coast day tour from Reykjavik
This tour not only features the Seljalandsfoss waterfall; the Skógarfoss waterfall; the Dyrhólaey promontory; the black sand beach Reynisfjara and a view of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano – but a variety of other sights as well.
After we have visited the aforementioned sights, we drive on to the Skaftafell national park. Skaftafell national park is Iceland’s second largest national park. We are not the kind of people that feel small in the presence of big things: We have lingered in line behind basketball players; and walked underneath skyscrapers,– but we admit that every time that we enter the Skaftafell national park we begin to feel insignificant.
There is something about the ancientness of the glaciers and the majestic presence of Hvannadalshnjúkur (Iceland’s highest mountain) that gives us a sense of awe and wonder. Within the national park travelers will see Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon; black sand diamond beach; the Svínafellsjökull glacier; and the Systrafoss waterfall (the Sisters waterfall), where two waterfalls run side-by-side down a mountain in the middle of a village.
This tour is different in summer and winter. In summer time (June-Oct) it is possible to take a optional boat tour on the Glacial lagoon ( not included in the price). During winter time when the boat ride is not possible you instead have a chance of catching the Northern light´s on the way back to Reykjavik.
If possible and you want we stop and watch a film about the Laki eruption in 1783, the dedliest eruption in recent times in Iceland, killing almost 25% of the population. Join us on this wonderful journey through the best that Iceland’s south coast has to offer.
