Full description

Embark on a guided tour from Reykjavik to the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. Witness the mighty Hvannadalshnjúkur mountain and black sand desert that sprawls between Skaftafell National Park and the lagoon. 

Stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascades to reach the other side. Continue to the majestic Skógafoss waterfall and admire the impressive 60-meter drop. Continue to Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon and stroll along the shores of the lake.

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of the area as 1,000- to 1,500-year-old ice breaks away from the Vatnajökull glacier and floats silently on the water. Recognize locations from some of the many movies that have been filmed in the area, such as Batman Begins and Tomb Raider.

Stop at the spectacular Diamond Beach and admire the strand of black sand speckled with clumps of ice, giving an appearance of shimmering diamonds. In the warmer months, enjoy an added boat ride around the lagoon and witness the floating icebergs up-close.

So I was quite apprehensive due to the length of the tour, but please don’t let it put you off. There are plenty of stops which break up the day perfectly. The tour guide and driver were great, really informative but not “in your face” like some trips I have been on. On the way back we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the northern lights to, which the driver pulled over for so we could take pics. Great end to the day ☺️

I think it will be stunning and beautiful if it's not because rain and the strong wind. But we know how iceland is, so when I go to this tour, the weather is not that good. there is rain and wind and super cold, when in diamond beach, the rain is getting stronger that make us drenched, so I opted to just sit in bus. the Glacier is beautiful too.

Wow what an experience!!! Was a very long day but absolutely magical. Having the coach driver pull over to make an unscheduled stop on the way home so that we could take pictures of the amazing show the Aurora was giving us was the icing on the cake. our tour guide was great and full of knowledge. If you are considering booking this trio, do it, you will not be disappointed.
