Full description
Explore the dramatic landscapes of the south of Iceland on a full-day sightseeing tour, and go to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon outlet of the largest glacier in Europe. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Reykjavik, transfer to the southern coast and the dramatic Glacier Lagoon. Enjoy plenty of time to see the floating icebergs and enjoy the stunning scenery. Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is the largest and deepest glacier lagoon in Iceland. It branches from Breidamerkurjokull, an outlet glacier of Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest glacier. During the season, make sure you reserve your ticket to the spectacular boat cruise on the Jökulsárlón itself and experience the unique Glacier Lagoon spectacle up close. When you prebook, your place is guaranteed. Return to Reykjavik, stopping at the gorgeous waterfall Seljalandsfoss. You will visit the Diamond beach with black sand, and there will be an additional stop in Iceland's southernmost village at Vík for dinner.

    Our guide Matt was amazing! The most intelligent and funny guid that we have had in Iceland so far. Our bus driver Kal was also amazing. We chose to skip coffee and see some extra sights and it was sooo worth it. It’s a long day but I learned more in this trip than any where else while in this country! The lagoon boat is a must don’t skip it. The waterfalls are also incredible! All the glaciers were more exciting because Matt knew everything about every single one. I appreciate that he enjoys his job so much. His passion is intoxicating.

    Our Guide Gud was very friendly and had a very calm and knowledgeable attitude.!He guaranteed a safe environment for the whole group and at every stop. The scenery was stunning, but be prepared for a long journey! There have been enough stops for supplies and pictures. Insider: I have never been called pretty boy that much in my life. (I hope you guys read the reviews!)

    The glacier lagoon was our favorite excursion among many awesome sights in Iceland. The guide was Icelandic and shared Viking sagas and his own insights during our 15 hour tour. Yes, it was exhausting, but we had plenty of stops to refresh, grab refreshments, meals and stretch. The photo opportunities are endless at the waterfalls and all other stops. We had a large bus full to the brim so it was challenging to manage the time, but the guide was excellent at herding all of us so we could make the most of our time. The only aspect I thought could be improved was dinner at Vik and the length of time at this stop since you either had to choose from a sit-down meal or running to the beach or church. Dinner options were also somewhat limited and not impressive when compared to Icelandic food in general. Overall, an outstanding experience.
