What You Can Expect

Iceland South Coast and Jokulsarlon Lagoon Day Trip from Reykjavik

Jokulsarlon Lagoon, Iceland

Depart your central Reykjavik hotel by air-conditioned coach and gaze out over Iceland’s rugged landscapes as you journey toward the south coast.

As you travel, listen as your guide shares tales of south Iceland, an area rich in picturesque villages and natural spectacles such as glacial rivers, waterfalls and volcanic peaks.

Drive through villages such as Selfoss, Vik and Kirkjubaejarklaustur, and marvel at the snow-capped mountains and epic landscapes of Skaftafell, part of the Vatnajökull National Park.

Visit the spectacular Skogarfoss waterfall, and drive through the volcanic desert of Skeidarasandur — a vast sand plain where sandstorms can be so intense that they strip paint from cars!
 Pass Iceland's largest active volcano, the ice-covered, sub-glacial Oraefajokull, and gaze up at 6950-foot (2,119-meter) Hvannadalshnjukur on its summit crater, the country’s highest peak.

Shortly afterward, arrive at Jokulsarlon Lagoon: a breathtaking expanse of water strewn with ice chunks that has provided the backdrop for several action films, including the James Bond hit Die Another Day and the 2001 Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie.

Travel back to Reykjavik where your day trip finishes with hotel drop-off.

It was a long day, but worth it as there is gorgeous and stunning nature along the way! The lagoon and icebergs were my favorite.

Although this was a VERY long day, it was totally worth it!! Jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon is truly magical and made the effort to get there worthwhile. The guide was very knowledgeable which helped to pass the time on the journey. Try to sit on the drivers side of the bus to get the most out of the magnificent scenery.

This tour was absolutely amazing. It was a very long tour but the time flew by. I got to see the beautiful countryside of Iceland which included endless waterfalls, beautiful coastline, volcanoes, glaciers, lava fields, black sand beaches, and wildlife. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Many people are discouraged by the length of this excursion, however, I would do it over and over again if I could. It was a once in a lifetime experience, and I couldnt be happier that I got to experience this excursion.

Be ready to say hello to the lovely ICEBERGS. I have to say that the main thing in this trip is Jokulsarlon, but you will also get the fantastic stops in several location, such as Skogafoss and Seljalandfoss. The guide was fluent and happy to answer all of your questions. The coach also comfortable too, so no worries even you will have a long journey total 14 hrs. After you arrive in Jokulsarlon, you will get boat tour to have a closer look to the floating icebergs and if you're lucky also the lovely seal. The tour will pick up and drop off you to your hotel. Use proper shoes and warm clothes because it's a little bit windy and sometimes you will get light shower in Jokulsarlon.

Although this is a very long day, 14 hours it's well worth it. The scenery alone is amazing, Jokulsarlon lagoon definately the highlight, however Vik beach was also gorgeous and another highlight for me. Lots of breaks during the day which was good, plenty of opportunities for food and bathroom breaks. Tour guide was informative and funny, lots of great stories about Icelandic history and it's people.

This experience was everything and more than we anticipated. Our driver Dori and our guide Brandon were both excellent at their job. They anticipated and took care of our needs before we were aware of our needs. We were in a full bus of people and everyone was accommodated as we ventured into this magnificent landscape. It's a long day but well worth it -- scenes that were awesome!!!! Go for it if you're wondering if it's worth the money!
