Tour Details
Join this tour along Iceland’s south coast to discover the Blue Ice Cave, famous waterfalls, Black Beach, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon and more! The tour includes one night of accommodation in a nice country hostel with shared bathroom and breakfast.

Join this tour along Iceland’s south coast to discover the stunning unique natural Blue Ice cave, glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, strong rivers and magic waterfalls.  

After being picked up in Reykjavik in the morning, your next two days will be an unforgettable adventure exploring the many amazing natural wonders of the South Coast of Iceland.

On the first day, visits to the famous waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss are amongst the highlights but you also visit the less known but no less beautiful waterfalls of Gljufrabui, Kvernufoss and Irafoss.   The black sand beach of Reynisfjara with its amazing surrounding area completes this exiting day.

After a good rest, your adventure continues the second day where you will visit the beautiful Skaftafell and walk on the Diamond Beach, an amazing black beach scattered with icebergs, next to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is where huge icebergs float in ice cold water and seals swim around them.

The highlight of the tour is a visit to a natural ice cave in Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest glacier. The ice in the cave is spectacularly blue and is a very popular attraction. 

If you want to enjoy the Icelandic nature to the fullest and to witness one of Iceland’s most incredible natural phenomenon, then you should book this tour now as availability is very limited.

Please notice: you should bring light luggage for the tour. If you have big suitcases we can store them for you in Reykjavik while you are on the tour.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 – South coast, the five waterfalls and black beach Reynisfjara

Setting out from Reykjavík, you will drive along route 1 passing through small towns and enjoying the beauty of the Icelandic countryside.   Your first stop will be at the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is located beneath the Eyjafjallajokull volcano.   Remember to ask your tour guide all about the colossal eruption back in 2010.   Close by is the beautiful but less known waterfall Gljufrabui.

Next up is the stunning Skogafoss, a drop of 60 m (200ft) of natural raw power that must be seen to be believed.   You will then have the additional pleasure of visiting the secret waterfalls of Kvernufoss and Írafoss.

Then it is on to Reynisfjara, a black sand beach nestling under Mt. Reynisfjall – seasonal home to numerous puffins that dive from its cliffs out to sea.  Black basalt has been shaped into amazing different formations, most notably the famous Reynisdrangar.  Beware the might of the Atlantic Ocean which looms with its powerful waves.

At the end of the day, your accommodation awaits in Seljaland, a lovely country guesthouse located in a beautiful spot close to Seljalandsfoss.  On the way there and during the night, we will look out for the Northern Lights if conditions are favourable to see them.

Day 2 – Glacier lagoon and the incredible Blue Ice cave

Today, you set off in the morning for a totally unique experience.   A visit to a natural stunning Blue Ice cave will be the highlight of the day.    After a drive through the lovely village of Vik, you stop at the Skaftafell national park where the amazing views will take your breath away!  

You then continue to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This famous lagoon is filled with huge chunks of ice that have cracked off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin and from there, your Ice cave adventure will begin.  

The ice caves only form in the winter when glacial water freezes to create this unique natural phenomenon.  Each season, the local glacier experts find the best caves to visit in an enjoyable and safe way.   From the glacier lagoon, they drive you through the best of Icelandic highlands in a special Super Jeep to the ice cave.  There you will have about an hour to explore and enjoy the magical blue caves.   Please do not forget to bring your camera!  

After this unforgettable adventure, you drive back to the Jokulsarlon where you join the bus again to head back to Reykjavik.    On the way back, you will of course be able to enjoy the beautiful nature of the South Coast and to make a quick stop in Vik village for some refreshments, while keeping an eye out for the Northern lights if conditions are right.
