Itinerary

Day 1. The Panoramic South Coast

In the morning you will be picked up at your accommodation in Reykjavík and will head out of the city to explore some of the most beautiful sites in south coast of Iceland. Our first stop will be the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Depending on weather and trail conditions, you can take a walk behind the waterfall, which is truly an amazing experience. Next on to another waterfall – Skógafoss. From there we continue to Reynisfjara beach with black sand and basalt columns and next on to Vík – picturesque village in south Iceland. From Vík we keep heading east across Mýrdalssandur floodplains and Eldraun, the most extensive lava field ever to flow on Earth in historical time. A short stop at Kirkjubćjarklaustur and we continue to Skaftafell national park – an oasis wedged between glaciers and sand plains. Before we head to our overnight location, we stop at the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, where large icebergs, broken off Breiđmerkurjökull glacier, float in the blue waters of the lagoon. It is not uncommon to see seals swimming and playing around in the lagoon. As we arrive at the overnight location, you can either relax after a long day or head out to hunt for northern lights, if the weather conditions allow.

Overnight - Skaftafell/Jökulsárlón area


Day 2. The Spectacular Ice Cave
