Full description
This two-day tour of the beautiful South Coast includes some of Iceland’s most stunning attractions and unforgettable adventures. Sightseeing at the stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, an exhilirating hike on Svínafellsjökull and picturesque Seljalandsfoss waterfall. 

You will encounter lush farmlands, powerful volcanos, glaciers, black sand beaches and majestic waterfalls on the first day before moving on to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The truly unique natural phenomenon is favored by photographers and filmmakers the world over for its surreal and ever-changing beauty. You then arrive at Gerði Country Hotel, where you rest up for the night and dinner is available for purchase. If you are lucky you might even be able to see the Northern Lights from there, since the hotel's rural location makes it an ideal viewing spot for the Aurora Borealis.

The second day starts with a trip to Svínafellsjökull glacier where you go on a 2 hour walk through the heart of a spectacular landscape with expansive views over roughhewn mountains and ice-blue glacier fields. It’s a fantastic opportunity for stunning photographs.

On the way back you drop by Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of the most iconic sights of the South Coast. A trail leads you along the river to a cavern behind the waterfall, allowing you to enjoy the cascading water from multiple angles. Tour returns to Reykjavik late in the evening of day two.
