Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is one of the most affordable options for a full-day adventure along Iceland’s South Coast, including Jökulsárlón.
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.

Stop a Seljalandfoss on your way back to Reykjavik, where you have the opportunity to follow the path behind the falls. Your day trip concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Even though it's a LONG day 14 hours driving, you get to see a lot of the area. I highly recommend this trip despite any complaints about 500 miles driving.

Breathtaking! Incredible experience! A MUST DO!

It was a very wonderful experience. The waterfalls, black sand beach and glacier lagoon are all spectacular and breathtaking. It was a long day trip but was well worth it. The drive was not boring. The labs fields, mini waterfalls, glacier and the happily grazing Icelandic horses and sheeps kept us awake and curious of what’s next to be seen and enjoyed.

Simply Excellent. It was my favorite place to visit.

This was an amazing day. We only had one day to spend in Iceland and this long day was a great way to see a lot in a little amount of time. The views outside the city were amazing from the black sand to the volcano mountains to the waterfalls. One of the highlights of the trip was definitely the glacier lagoon which was beautiful. The boat ride was great and not too cold which was nice. One thing to note was the bus driver was a little more aggressive than others we have had. This didn't bother us directly, but other tourists noticed it and some of the people he passed on the road a bicyclist in particular did comment on his driving. Aside from this, this trip was a great way to spend one day in Iceland.

Loved this trip. Wish we had started earlier or had more time to stop at one of the waterfalls earlier. Majority of the day trip was amazing!!We ended up seeing Seljalandsfoss at night which was a huge letdown because we couldn't really make it out in the dark with the measly lighting. Did my best to make it enjoyable by walking to it and behind it, but the beauty of it was dampered by it being at night and the photos were disappointing.

Worth the trip!

Such a beautiful tour and great, comfortable bus - with knowledgeable guide - Reina. The black sand beach with the icebergs had to be a highlight. Just spectacular - though a long day, was well worth it. We had 4 teens with us two boys aged 13 and two girls 15 - and when we thought the would be antsy during the day, they all said this day was their favorite part of the trip!

It's the worst tour. What can I say when I have booked and paid for the tour but the agents failed to pick us up for the tour. You rate it yourself - Gray Line Iceland.

A very long day but well worth it. The sites are unlike anything you've seen before! Absolutely magical.

Brandon and Chrissy were amazing tour guides / drivers. They went well out of their way to make it such a memorable day.

We had an issue with a road closure which meant a 5 hour delay back to Reykjavic.. not only did Brandon organise for the restaurant to stay open late for us, but he re-organised half the groups buses to the airport in the morning so no body missed a flight.
He was also both hilarious and knowledgable. And always happy to take a photo for you!

If you only do one tour, this is the one to do.
