Full description

Explore the dramatic landscapes of the south of Iceland on a full-day sightseeing tour by bus. Go to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon outlet of the largest glacier in Europe, leaning about its history and formation from your local guide.

Following a pickup 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.

During the season, make sure to reserve your ticket to the boat cruise on the Jökulsárlón and experience the unique Glacier Lagoon spectacle up close. When you prebook, your place is guaranteed.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is Iceland’s largest and deepest glacier lagoon. It branches from Breidamerkurjokull, an outlet glacier of Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest glacier.

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.

It was a mind blowing experience. Simply cannot express in words! A must do thing in Iceland. The pick-up was on time, bus was comfortable and the guide was very nice; kinda military but nice and knowledgeable. She was a marine biologist, so on a trip to Glacier Lagoon it was nice to know the reasons for the lagoon to exist in the first place. And when we reached there, it was a jaw-dropping experience. I had never seen something so beautiful in my life, the blue icebergs, diamond beach, the boat ride, it was an experience for a lifetime!

Monika, our guid,was very kind and had many stories to tell us during the tour. I personnally think that this is an incredible tour to discover an important part of the island. We had many stop and few extra ones that were very enjoyable. Monika always make sure to let you discover and learn about the history of the different places, even some nice music during the bus tour ! She is very passionate about this country and very informative, I learned so much ! I highly recommand it, the boat is magical and icelanders are very kind and funny with foreigners. Waterfall are so beautiful and powerful, and the landscape during the tour are so wildly beautiful.

Don't miss this incredible and simply mesmerizing excursion! The cruise on the glacier lagoon is to be done at all costs, it was definitely the highlight of the day but the diamond beach and the various stops were well worth the detour. In particular a waterfall offered to us by our guide Chiara, who was also a wonderful guide and full of anecdotes on the sagas and the culture in general of the country with a permanent enthusiasm and an infectious smile, a big thank you to her for this good atmosphere that she knew how to install in the group! Also thank you to the Magic driver who took the 10 hour drive! I recommend this excursion.
