What to Expect
Join this 2-day tour and explore Iceland's south coast. Discover its glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, rivers and waterfalls. Visit an amazing black beach scattered with icebergs and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where seals swim around huge icebergs floating in the ice-cold water.
The highlight of the tour is a visit to a natural ice cave inside the Vatnajökull glacier. The ice in the cave is spectacularly blue and a popular attraction.
