Hop on our minibus and see the most beautiful parts of the country in this comprehensive day tour to the South Coast, including Jökulsárlón, the Glacier Lagoon, and Diamond Beach.

Our final destination is the stunning glacier lagoon, Jökulsárlón, where you will be able to see blue icebergs and exciting wildlife. Just as amazing is the fact that right across the street you will see the world-famous Diamond Beach with beautiful icebergs laying on the black sand. But, before reaching them we will stop the most famous sights in the South Coast including powerful waterfalls, beaches with black sand, and all the magnificent landscapes that make Iceland the most famous destination of the last years.


The adventure begins when we pick you up in Reykjavík in a small and comfortable minibus. As we’re approaching the South, we will arrive in the 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!

Reynisfjara – The Black Sand Beach

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

Skaftafell National Park

Next, we will head to Skaftafell National Park where we will stop to observe the beauty. Skaftafell is considered to be the jewel in the crown of national parks in the country as it is blessed with such a wide array of extraordinary landscapes. The park is an oasis in a desert of the proglacial black sand, green isle, and valleys that are home to many sparkling glacier. You will have to see it yourself.

Jökulsárlón – Glacier Lagoon

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.

Diamond Beach

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 the history of all the places and a few fun facts and funny stories.
