What You Can Expect

South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Day Tour 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.

Shocking experience to visit the Jökulsárlon Glacier Lagoon...there are no words to describe such dimensión of beauty and odd.
Iceland is like Mars...the mountains seem to raise like trolls and the combination of ice, volcanos and lack of people in general take you as a visitor to unknow emotions of bliss.

If you take only one tour while in Reykjavik, this has to be the one! It is a very long tour but there were lots to see! The waterfalls were amazing we went to one at night but still visible. Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is a fantastic sight.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

This was an amazing tour. The Glacier Lagoon and the Black Sand beaches can't be beat. We also stopped at some gorgeous waterfalls along the way. It's a long day, but I still wish we had more time at the Lagoon and the beach. The guide was very knowledgable.

Long day but well worth it-the last stop at night for the waterfall was kind of useless

Even though it's a long day, it's well worth it. Scenery is incredible. Stopped to see a couple of waterfalls before heading out to see the glacier and the lagoon. It was amazing! Probably my favorite experience in Iceland.

The trip was amazing. However I was disappointed by VIATOR overcharging for this trip. I paid for this trip 198 and VIATOR is not tour operator. Gray Line Iceland is. The same trip by Gray Line Iceland was priced at 165. Unfortunately I got mislead by VIATOR low price guarantee add. For me is to late to get decent price. However I would advise others check prices before booking. By the way this trip included boat trip.
