Join this two-day tour of the stunning South Coast of Iceland to discover the likes of glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, rivers and cascading waterfalls, as well as the unique and naturally formed Blue Ice Cave. This excursion is for anyone looking to experience the vast wonders of Iceland in only two days. 

Your adventure begins with a pickup from Reykjavík City on the morning of your first day, after which you will pay a visit to two of the country’s most famous and remarkable waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Then, you will be treated to their nearby waterfalls of equal allure; Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss, which are hidden gems of the area that many people miss out on experiencing.

The black pebble beach Reynisfjara and its stunning sea stacks Reynisdrangar will complete this exciting first day of the tour.

After a good night’s rest, your adventure continues, where you will visit the otherworldly nature reserve Skaftafell and take a walk along the Diamond Beach. The beach consists of black velvet sand that’s dotted with glistening icebergs, that are making their way from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean. 

The glacier lagoon counts as one of Iceland’s primary attractions, where you can gaze at the huge chunks of ice floating in the azure waters—you might even spot the resident seals that are often curious enough to greet visitors. 

Then it’s time for the highlight of the tour; to visit a natural ice cave within Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland’s largest ice cap. To visit one of these caves is a rarity and a privilege, as they are hunted down by experts each fall and fill with meltwater each spring. Since this is the winter season, there is a good chance the Northern Lights might grace you with their presence each night of your adventure. 

If you want to experience the nature of Iceland to its full extent and witness true natural phenomena, then book this tour now; it is in high demand and of limited availability. Check availability by choosing a date.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - South Coast, Five Waterfalls & Black Beach Reynisfjara


The great waterfall Skógafoss on the South Coast of Iceland is one of the main attractions of the first day of this amazing tour.


After getting picked up in Reykjavík, you will pass through the small towns and beautiful countryside of Route 1. Your first stop will be the one and only waterfall Seljalandsfoss, located in the shadow of the infamous volcanic ice cap Eyjafjallajökull. Remember to ask your guide all about the colossal 2010 eruption that halted all airline travel across Europe. 

After having visited the close by, but lesser known, waterfall Gljúfrabúi, you will head onto the cascading wonder Skógafoss, a 60-metre drop of raw, cascading power. Up next are two hidden gems of the area, the stunning waterfalls Kvernufoss and Írafoss.

Then it is time to head to the black beach Reynisfjara by the coastal village Vík. The beach nestles under the sea cliff Mt. Reynisfjall, where black basalt columns have been shaped by nature into various rock formations, most notably the eerie Reynisdrangar sea stacks. Be careful on this beach and never turn your back to the sea, since powerful sneak waves can carry you out in an instant if you don't heed the warning signs. 

At the end of your day, you will retreat to a local accommodation in the area, but not before embarking on a hunt for the Northern Lights that often grace the night sky with their presence during the winter months. The lights can never be guaranteed, but their predictability is meticulously calculated, and your guides will do their very best to find them for you. 


Day 2 - Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon & The Blue Ice Cave


The blue ice cave inside Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier, is a true wonder of Iceland not many locals have even experienced.


On your second day, get ready for a unique experience as the highlight of the tour awaits. After a drive through Vík, you will get off the bus in Skaftafell, a vast nature reserve of amazing landscapes and countless attractions. 

You will then make your way to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a world-renowned sight of icebergs floating lazily in freezing water, creating a serene and otherworldly sight. The ice has broken off from one of Vatnajökull’s many outlet glaciers, Breiðamerkurjökull. Some of the bergs wash up on shore, where they glisten in the sun like gemstones, on the sand strip dubbed the Diamond Beach. 

From this location, your ice cave adventure will begin. A specialised super jeep will take you the rest of the way from the lagoon, through the highlands, to the entrance of the cave. Remember that this winter phenomenon forms each year naturally, when the temperature drops, after which glacial experts hunt for the best caves that are safe to explore. You will have a good hour to explore this winter wonderland of glistening shades of blue ice, so remember to bring your camera for the once in a lifetime photo opportunities. 

After this unforgettable adventure, you will ride the jeep back to Jökulsárlón, where you will jump back on the bus and head to Reykjavík City. After a quick stop at Vík for refreshments, the Northern Lights just might show.

On your way back, you can be rest assured that you just enjoyed some of the most unique and incredible attractions Iceland has to offer. 


Reviews

Had a wonderful tour with nicetravel. Our guide was knowleadge and explained to us a lot about Iceland and the culture. We had an awesome trip for the two days with the tour group. The accommodation despite being a hostel is well kept and very clean. Ice caving experience was very good. Nicetravel has been really accommodating with my requests and answers all my quiries promptly. They even helped out to suggest my proposal plan and the proposal went well as per planned in blue ice cave. The tour guide helped out to capture all the moments with his DSLR. In future when I visit Iceland again, will surely book again the tour group

David is a passionate and knowledgeable tour guide who planned the journey very well so we could make good use of the sunlight and spend enough time in every spots. He explained the natural phenomenon in details and booked a decent restaurant for us to have lunch together. The hotel is clean and cozy with nice breakfast provided. I advised everyone should finish watching Game of Thrones before joining this trip as David will try to tell you some spoilers when we visited some place where GOT was filmed (although he didn't do so at last :D) If you want to have a pleasant and fun tour in Iceland, David will be your best companion and tour guide!!

We went there in the end of March. Actually, we have booked the other trip in the same company with a bit higher price, since the cheap one is sold out. So we stay at the hotel instead of the hostel. I think it is worth doing so. because if you choose the hostel, You will spend more time on the bus heading back after the first day trip. The trip is nice, everything is well planed and the guide is fun. The communication with company are also very nice. The secret waterfall is nice and quiet. Although, most people saying the ice cave is great. I would say the ice cave is somehow small. But every year you will see the cave differently. Maybe big one can be found when you hike in the glacier for longer time but you have to book with more professional companies then. We have only 8 people in the trip, although the seats are small, we still have enough comfortable space. We didn't see the northern light on the trip. Although the index is really high at day, the cloud is also thick. People in the north coast have seen very colorful ones. But that couldn't be planned. Wish you good luck!

Had an amazing experience! The landscape and sights of Iceland is amazing! Would definitely recommend this tour. Our guide Thomas was patient and pretty humorous which made for a rather entertaining trip. He also brought us on an adventure to a secret waterfall which was well worth the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the ice cave experience and the glacier lagoon. They were so breathtaking! Accommodation was cozy and clean. The two pitstops for lunch were also pretty good. One of which had an amazing backdrop of a waterfall. Would definitely want to visit again!

We saw the most spectacular scenes during this 2 days tour. Our guide David is very very gentle and knowledgeable person. He makes sure we were on schedule. Our van had 13 ladies, sometimes we took lots of pictures and running out of time. David was always very kindly pushing us and patient. During the evening we stayed in hostel, very clean and cozy. According to the report we would be able to see the northern light. So our guide David was waiting outside to check and informs us. We were very lucky to capture the northern light. The second night on our way home, there was a huge northern light explosion. So we stopped and take pictures for an additional 30 minutes at least.

We experienced it so wonderful. Beautiful scenery, clear air & water, friend's smile,,, It was the best memory for me. I'm looking forward to go Iceland again. Thank you Iceland !!!

It was the greatest journey we have in Iceland! Wonderful and magnificent views! Thank you so much Antonio Perez and the driver (oops I forgotten how to spell his name) from Poland for brought us to see so many stunning spots. Thanks god we have you as our tour guide !!! We're greatly appreciated !! nicetravel.is do not lose out Antonio Perez!! He is truly Gems to your good company! He is gifted and talented on what he did best!! Thanks once again through out the 2 days tour!

What a wonderful trip during this 2 days tour. So many beautiful places. We were lucky to have Antonio as our guide. A really great men, friendly and so helpful, sharing his passion and experience. Hope to come back so much

This is one of the best trips I have ever been to! The guide for our tour was Antonio and

It was the most amazing trip I have ever had, due to the astonishing landscape of Jökulsárlón glacier and also our guide Antonio. Although it took time to reach the destination, it is not tired at all, the trip is well organized and favoring. Especially Antonio, our Spanish guide, he walked with us all the time even the weather was not good enough; he introduced the icebergs, ice cave inside Vatnajökull glacier, waterfalls and so on, practically it was almost everything and everywhere we visited. I would like to praise that he was the most responsible, passionate, caring tour guide I met in Iceland, I believe he made the trip colourful and fun! It was an awesome experience for me, very impressive! I highly recommended this trip, hope you have Antonio as your guide as well.

We did have a wonderful experience in this 2 day tour, highly recommend :) Our guide, Antonio, is really professional, kind, and always fulls of passion!! He introduced us lots of histories and stories, the most important thing is that he knows lots amazing views and how to take perfect photos XD Really had a great time in iceland!!

our trip was so good and we were very lucky to have antonio as our guide. he explained so many things to us,answered our questions and took us to see the hidden gems in iceland. we love you antonio!

Really incredible! You will regret if you don't attend this!!!

This is the best trip I've ever had. I was thrilled when I saw those amazing landscapes, and we had a really unique experience in glacier cave. Thanks for Jóhannes and David, our tour giude and driver. They are very nice and energetic, made this trip even more fun.

AMAZING 2 day tour in Iceland!!! Well worth it! The small group tour was so much better than having a big tour bus with so many people! Our tour guide Antonio made it that much more special! He was fun, informative and professional! Would recommend this trip to everyone! :)

This tour was fantastic. It was a small group tour which allowed a more flexible schedule and personal attention from the tour guide. Our guide Antonio who was professional, knowledgeable, passionate, friendly and helpful. We asked him about Aurora and he shared lots of useful information with us even we didn't have chance to see it during the trip. We did had a great experience within 2 days. Thanks Antonio for creating such best memory for us. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends!

This was a fantastic tour!! I'm so glad we went with this tour company over one that packs a bus with 40+ people. We had a small group of 11 people that allowed for a more relaxed schedule and personal attention from the guide. Speaking of - our guide, Lou, was absolutely incredible. She was knowledgeable, funny, friendly, accommodating, and extremely helpful. It turns out that I'm not the person you want next to you when hiking on ice, and Lou literally held my hand and helped me through it. We also got to see some spots that aren't shown on most other tours. Our driver, David, was also great. The hostel was very nice as well. I was expected shared bathrooms, but we had our own bathroom and shower. Our window offered a great view of the light show as well. We were fortunate enough to see a great display of dancing, colorful lights. We were also able to go into the ice cave, which apparently was not the case for others groups last months. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Book it - you won't regret it!

Great tour! Day 1 has the first few stops hitting a high amount of foot traffic with other tour groups visiting the same spots, but the secret waterfall stop made up for that in spades, great little find!!! The nights stay at the NiceHostel was great, cosy little place with complimentary soup and breakfast (although, a small negative here is that it's in Seljaland, the opposite direction to the next day's activities at Vantajokull, which means a lot of travel time on the next day). There were areas close by that night without cloud cover, but we weren't offered a northern lights hunt, possibly due to other factors. Day 2 kicked off with some fantastic weather, and made for some AMAZING vistas of the glaciers, lagoon and diamond beach. We were extremely lucky to have the ice caves open, though could only go in about 10m due to the high water. Spectacular nonetheless. The super-van driver was very entertaining, taking us on a spin ON the glacier in the van. All in all, our tour driver and guide were fantastically knowledgable and enthusiastic, making the most of the tour despite the weather conditions, and the tour was kept on schedule throughout the duration. Waterproof attire is a MUST to enjoy yourself, top and bottom. We saw many absolutely miserable people soaked to the bone wearing jeans and sneakers and similar inappropriate gear. Five Star experience.

We experienced it so wonderful. Beautiful scenery, clear air & water, friend's smile,,, It was the best memory for me. I'm looking forward to go Iceland again. Thank you Iceland !!!

This tour was fantastic. We unfortunately had quite a bit of rain but it was still amazing - just make sure you bring a rain jacket, not just a snow jacket like we did! The waterfalls were spectacular and this tour took you to otherwise inaccessible ones. The glacier is truly stunning as is the lagoon. We travelled in a small intimate group of 13 people. The hostel is run by the tour company and is clean and comfortable. We had an amazing tour guide, Antonio. He was passionate, funny and knowledgeable. It was a wonderful experience.

I have a fantastic time! The difficult part about booking this trip, is that everything is weather dependent and therefore, out of the control of the tour company. In terms of what lies within their control, everything was great. The pick-up was on time, the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the team was pretty good about getting the group to stay on schedule. In terms of my trip, I was really delighted to have Olafur as a guide. I was a solo traveler and probably asked him too many questions, but he entertained them and shared a lot of interesting information about the sights and Icelandic history/culture/current shifts, etc. I was most eager to see the blue ice cave, which we were fortunately able to do. I think they were flooded for some days prior and had just opened up, so we were quite lucky. It was beautiful, but even though this was my main motivation for booking this tour, it did not end up being the highlight. For me, the best part was actually a stop at a glacier (not glacier lagoon) for sunrise on the second day. There were no other tour companies and the view was absolutely stunning. I had a moment where I just felt complete and wanted to stay there forever. Being able to experience that made the entire trip worth it. (And I was a little bummed about all the rain the day before, so this was a great stroke of luck.) Overall, I would absolutely book with this tour company again. I had such a great experience and every time I reminisce about the few days I had in Iceland, I enter back into this dream-like place. I undoubtedly will be back to explore some more in the future. See you then!

a handsome and charming guide for this tour. he showed us some interesting places didnt posted in publiced record. i wanted to take picture with him. but it was pity he didnt like it. and a little suggestion. i hope they can cancel the mandatory single room strategy. because it's too much for a single tourist. and matter of fact, i dont mind to share double room with stranger. in fact i did make some new friends while we were in that group. it should give a option at least.

Spending my birthday on this tour with amazing guide Antonio was the best decision! He showed us hidden places that are surely less crowded or not touristic at all. He did go extra to satisfy us and tried to make our day special in Iceland. we couldn't try ice caving because of constant rain couple of days before our tour, but we were able to walk on the glaciers and go inside of the black cave. We stayed in hotel Geirland. Its pretty small but feel so cozy with beautiful scenery. Overall I do recommend you to go for this tour especially with guide Antonio!

We really enjoyed this tour! We traveled 3 days ago and despite the very cold and rainy weather we had a lovely time. The waterfalls are very nice, the black sand beach is super beautiful and the glacier is quite an experience... we couldn't get inside the blue cave because of the weather but we could get inside an small black cave and also walk on the glacier. Our guide was Anika and she was very kind with us the whole time. The hotel was great, very comfortable and excellent food.

first, Arnar and Einor, our tour captains are very caring and friendly icelandic people. We were shown to the 5 waterfalls, 2 beaches, ice lagoon, ice cave, glaicer and many coffee stops. We were driven through the beautiful coastline smoothly in rain, gust, snow, ice, dust storm, and sunshine in a day. I would enjoy the walk better if I have packed waterproof boot up to ankle, raincoat, small plastic bag to waterproof my camera and ice grippers. But I get on without them. My friend had good fun, but just wish for more time in blue ice cave because it is beautiful, but I think it is out of control by our captains as another ice cave guide control the time. overall, it is very sactisfying.

Amazing. Our tour guides Antonio and Michael did a great job of getting us safely to all our destination. I really debated renting a car or taking a tour, but in the end seeing the way the weather was I am glad to have Michael driving and I am sure I would not have seen many of the waterfalls and glaciers on my own. Antonio passion and knowledge of the area clearly came through during our many stops. We saw 4 waterfalls the first day. 2 famous ones and 2 that are hidden and you have to hike a little bit for. Then we stayed in a very comfortable and clean guest house. The staff there were also excellent. They serve soup and bread complimentary, but pizza is available for purchase. Breakfast is also complimentary. The next day it had snowed heavily, again very glad I had a experienced driver. We went to the glacier and Crystal Cave. Stunningly beautiful. Antonio explained the local volcano and the history of eruptions last on grounded planes traffic because of the ash and gas plume. We stopped and saw the frozen lake where Game of thrones shot the Wilding fort when the White walkers attacked and John Snow narrowly escaped. (it was January at the time of my visit). The sun had come out by this time and we went to the Black Beach. Watch out for those waves, but beautiful to see. There is a giant Balsam columns cave there. Then on to the glacier lagoon and diamondhead beach. Shockly beautiful. An experienced you will never forget. This is the highlight of my entire trip to Iceland and not to be missed. We stopped for lunch, the one last upclose look at the glacier and short hike. Then we returned to Reykjavik. I can't Thank Nicetravels, Antonio and Michael enough for a wonderful 2 days.

Totally amazed by the beauty of Iceland, in spite of the bad weather we still had massive fun exploring the amazing places. Especially, highly recommend our tour guide, Antonio, he tried his best to introduce us the difference aspects of Iceland from history, economics to culture during the 2 days trip. The most important of all, he is responsible and passionate! Definitely an unforgettable trip ever!

Iceland is by far the most spectacular country I've ever been. I had a really fab time during 3 tour trip via NiceTravel. The 2-day tour trip including blue ice cave and glacier walk is far more amazing. Ros is our driver and Antonio is the tour guide. Both of them have accompanied us for a nice period. Antonio is considerable and humorous. He insures that everyone is safe and makes the trip full of fun. During the night he also guided us to watch the northern light and the next day we are so lucky to see the rare "mother of pearls ". It's a really fantastic traveling experience.

It's very nice experienc. Though it's during winter time, but you still can see how beautiful Iceland is. Antonio is a good guide, he took care of everybody, introduced the history of the land, and also so passionate about his job. Not only took us to the beautiful places, but also let us know about the culture and life in Iceland, I had a great time in this trip, will def come visit this place and people soon!

It's a wonderful 2 days journey with Antonio! He is a so knowledgeable and professional tour guide~ always be excitied to introduce the beauty of Iceland to us! With him we are very enjoyable of the ice cave, it's so amazing! BTW, he is so good at photo shooting!

Forget to say, Antonio and Steinar are the best tour guide and driver in entire galaxie

The trip was absolutely amazing. The guide and driver was so nice and the guest house was cozy. Not saying you won't miss the glacier and ice caves. Everything you can see is just natural.

This tour is great, our guide Antoine, was very considerate and experienced to bring us the best of Southern Iceland during this tour, there was a limited daylight during winter, he managed to schedule the tour right on the perfect time so we can see all beautiful attractions in a perfect daylight! Although we already booked the hiking shoes in advance, the guide didn't notice until we brought it up and got the refund at the end, in which I minus 1 point in here. Overall, it was a great tour, the pick-up was smooth and right on time, wi-fi was fast, breakfast and restaurants were awesome, bed was cosy, minibus was a bit crowed though. I really appreciated the great communication and fast replies of e-mail, highly recommended!

This company did a good job of trying to accommodate during extenuating circumstances. The weather was particularly bad the week we went (apparently all the tours were cancelled) and we tried to go out anyways. We were able to see two waterfalls before the weather was too bad to see anything else. The second day was for the most part cancelled as well. The tour guide did his best to show us other parts of the southern coast that we were able to see. In the end, though disappointing due to the weather, the company refunded some of our money which was much appreciated.

I attended this tour last week with my sister and it was an amazing one! Although the weather was bad the guide Antonia has tried his best to give us the fantastic experience in the Iceland. He planned the trip well and has been very considerate. Recommend this tour to everyone!

Driver David and guide Jaka are really nice to us. First day we had 9 members in the team and next day reduced to 7 because the couple only attended 1 day tour. It was nice during the whole trip, Jaka told us a lot of stories of Iceland, made me feel like this was also a study tour. Lol

Even though the weather during my "2 Day Tour to Jokulsarlon with Ice Cave & South Coast Waterfalls" with Guide to Iceland could have been put under the signiture weather of low clouds, fog & rain (minus 1 point) - David (Guide) filled the tour with lots of interesting details and fun "behind the fog"-stories. He just made the tour great! Thanks again for these awesone 2 days and the extra miles you put on to show us the Gate to Iceland in sunshine. Absolute highlight of the tour was the crystal cave with the hidden small 360° blue ice tunnel (big thanks to our guide Össi who took us there) - stunning nature creation (o.O) I totally recommend the tour and will definitively go again to see the great mountain/volcano panoramas with sunshine and without the couldy disguise. Cheers

My family and I did 2 day tour to jokulsarlon with ice caves and south coast waterfall along with one day tour to the golden circle, blue lagoon. Both days we had Einar as our tour guide and he was amazing. Very friendly and always willing to help He was very knowledgeable and was always patience with us. He never rushed us but politely let us know if we got behind. We were there in November so only had few hours day light to enjoy the scenery. At the end of the tour we offered him some Tip and politely declined it and told us that they don’t accept tips in Iceland. All of the Nice travel vehicles had Wifi so that was very convenience. Over all it was an awesome tour. Just wished we had more day light to enjoy everything. I would recommend doing this trip in fall or spring.

This tour offered amazing views and sights of South Coast of Iceland. Antonio is a very knowledgeable guide and his friendly disposition put everyone in the group at ease. The tour group size was also kept small, which is advantageous if you are seeking a personalized experience of touring Iceland. Despite the unpredictable weather condition encountered during this trip, our guide and driver ensured the group's safety was their priority. Would definitely recommend this trip if you are ready to get your mind blown with the picturesque views of the South Coast!

This is the best trip I've ever had. I was thrilled when I saw those amazing landscapes, and we had a really unique experience in glacier cave. Thanks for Jóhannes and David, our tour giude and driver. They are very nice and energetic, made this trip even more fun.

A super nice travel with "NICE TRAVEL"!! Our guides Antonio and David are definitely the BEST, making our journey amazing and just perfect, with a flow of surprises and laughter. They made it possible for us to enjoy all the mentioned but unpredictable attractions, with cosily enough time and freedom. We have an lovely group, with whom I enjoyed every moment during the whole journey. Especially I love that evening chatting, waiting for Aurora together in our nice hotel, just feels like home, and doesn't matter whether or not it really appears. These two days are already Miracle. Miss you guys!

Absolutely incredible experience! From the stunning Icelandic landscapes, gorgeous waterfalls, majestic glacier lagoon to the incredible glacier cave, my sister and I have really enjoyed this two days tour. Our guide Antonio is highly knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. Our driver David was an experienced and safe driver, always professional and cheerful. They understood the type of experience we hoped for and consistently delivered in all aspects. They are insightful, professional, knowledgeable, genuine, engaging and exceptional! Thank you! I highly recommend this tour!

My friend and I joined this two days tour in Iceland it was amazing!! Especially I like our guide Antonio,he is knowledgeable & professional about ICELAND and also our driver David, he is a professional driver too! They won't make you feel boring during this journey,that's important!! I highly recommended you guys to join their tours,you can search "nicetravel" on Facebook if you have more time you should spend more days on their tours believe me!!!

Amazing tour with lovely people!!!

I only gave it a 4 and not a 5 because I was sick my whole last day of the tour. Antonio and Robert were amazing tour guides! They even took great care of me when I wasn't feeling well. I love that the tour was only a small minibus which made it more intimate, and I felt like we saw so much beauty. Highly recommend the guys at Nice Travel!

This adventure was incredible. Going inside the glacier cave was unlike any experience I've ever had. Even getting out to the cave was an experience in itself, inside a van on massive tires to overcome the terrain. It was my favorite part of my vacation in Iceland. Our guide, Antonio ensured we got as much out of the experience as possible. I'd recommend this adventure to anyone who enjoys experiencing the unique and the exciting.

Incredible experience in the ice cave although too many waterfalls for me...

Like: 1.Nice nature scenes, amazing glacier, ice cave. They are really as impressive as photos. 2.The guide and driver are professional, helpful and friendly. 3. It really goes through most beautiful scenery of the south and east of Iceland. Dislike: 1. I am a solo traveler, so when I communicate the booking with Nice Travel (the travel agency), they told me I must upgrade to a single room and pay extra. So I accept the deal. Then at the first day, the guide told me she was not informed by this. and I can share a room with other solo travelers so I don't need to pay extra. That made me feel they were playing me around. 2. Some of the waterfalls really require good equipment for climbing, waterproof coat and jeans, excellent hiking shoes, thick waterproof gloves etc. They do not inform you those and many people in the tour are not well equipped. So for the people who want to join, wear your best outdoor things before departure. 3. The minibus is really mini, crowded and no place for many luggage.

It was amazing and fantastic! Many thanks to our tour guide Antonio who led us hike among the glacier and do into the ice cave. We were pretty lucky to be the last group to get into the ice cave. It's absolutely an unforgettable experience I've ever had!

Our tour guide Mika is very nice! He was so keen to show the amazing views to us. I hope I can join his tour again.

This 2 day trip to south coast is absolutely fantastic! Our tour guide Antonio and driver Robert are the best I've ever been with. Antonio is very knowledgeable and passionate about everything in Iceland, from history to geology to place to see. We visited two famous waterfall and two secret waterfalls. We are the only group at the last secret one! The entire trip was smooth, relaxed, yet full of adventures. Antonio has his on-board WiFi so we were always connected. He also knows a lot about how to take amazing pictures at those spots. We loved this short tour and really had a sweet memory on our honeymoon trip to Iceland!

Antoine, he is very nice person!!! So interesting travel with him. Good

Antoine, he is very nice person!!! So interesting travel with him. Good

Our tour guide is very good, he took us to many secret places, which are very beautiful, and he took care of everyone very well. The overall itinerary is good organized!

Amazing experience in my life! Our tour guide Antonio was funny and professional, worth every second of this trip.. Thank you so much

Nice trip. Though the weather was not good, we still had a special journey. Especially the ice cave is really unique.

This 2-day tour was amazing and so worth it. We travelled in two mini buses; the guides were able to give us more attention because of the small group. Can't stress how unbelievably nice the guides were. At the hotel, I smashed my hand through a lamp at 1:00am and one of the drivers, David, helped immediately and tried to get a doctor. The hotel staff patched me up and insisted that we didn't pay for the lamp. The places we went to were unbelievable. My favourite part was the ice cave. So so amazing.

Thanks our handsome guide Paolo and driver Robort for this amazing 2 days tour. Even though the weather is not very good but they still try to show us the beauty of iceland. I am so glad to have them to be my guide. They are truly sweet and gentle. They will sometimes add more stops for different views according to the weather. I really appreciate that! Overall, I enjoyed the trip even some activities were changed due to weather, but that's Iceland and I had a pretty great time.

I have only good things to say about the trip. Our guide Antonio created a very positive environment within the group, and transmitted his entusiasm and passion about Iceland to everyone. His knowledge about Iceland, related to many different subjects, history, geography and culture, gave us a good impression of the country we were about to explore, and made the trip very interesting and complete. He showed us hidden spots and not only the most touristic places, which made it possible to enjoy the nature without disturbance and to take in some of that special Icelandic magic that surrounded us all the time. Absolutely recommentable!!

I have booked a 2 day trip to south coast waterfalls, glaciers, and ice cave with "nice travel" last week. We got "Antonio" as our guide and he is the best guide I have ever asked for. He is not only take us to different places that are on the itinerary but also take us to many secret places that are not yet very well known by the tourists. He is a really nice guy and also very friendlyyyyyy....and a really good photographer as well!!! Hope to see you soon in Thailanddd ^^

The trip was amazing! i got Antonio as my tour guide. HE IS THE BEST! He was friendly and helpful like REALLY HELPFUL. He knows everything about Iceland. the part i like most was that he always know where should we take a good picture! The picture was incredible! He know i like model post so he really advice things and show me great place and stuff. The places were nice, people was good, the tour was great! nothing could be better than this. I really really enjoy the tour. i was having such a best experience out there with the nice travel. If i have a chance to go there again ill definitely choose him and nice travel to be part of my plan again !!! i recommend the tour (and also Antonio). ps. Antonio, if you are reading this, YOU ARE THE BEST! love you!!!!! SEE YOU IN THAILAND!

A wonderful experience with high-calibre and responsible guide Mika driver David. They are all fabulous! I wish I could be there a second time to rediscover the wonderful days there!

The guide showed us so mich incredible places that nicely advoid crowd. my mom and i had nice days and would love to stay longer for these beautiful experiences!

The tour guide was the best one I have ever met. He take care of everyone so careful and always smile. You can get many information if you chat with him. It was a wonderful experience.

Didn't have the chance the see the northern light in the evening, but the rest parts were just brilliant! In two days we saw five falls, two black sand beach, a big blue ice cave, and the glaciers. Laura was an amazing guide, actually the combination of a young female guide and an elderly local driver brought us so much fun and lots of love. Laura is always very caring for her customers, and in each spot we've got enough time for sightseeing. The beauty of iceland will make you speechless. You'd better wear waterproof clothes (cause you may get very close to the falls) , slide-proof shoes, and have something to protect your knees because some parts of the blue ice cave are very low that we need to crawl a bit from one cave to another.

We ABSOLUTELY LOVED our trip across the country to the ice cave, glacier, black sand beaches and waterfalls. Our guides -- Antonio and Robert -- were wonderful. They were both knowledgeable and funny AND knew how to make the trip truly special with lovely touches and attention. Antonio was a great guide and knew how to "push" people just enough to enjoy the trip but truly get a unique experience. We enjoyed the other company on the trip and truly appreciated Roberts steady driving and the wi-fi in the van/bus as well. We saw all the falls -- some up close and personal, two different but equally powerful black sand beaches, we appreciated the fierceness of the sea and the ethereal beauty of blue icebergs on the beach as well as the blue ice of the cave. We had friends that had gone on the trip and highly recommended it -- we were lucky enough to share the same guides and an experience even better than we had imagined. So blessed and grateful to have this experience. Oh, and OMAR who booked our trip is AWESOME! Thanks to NICEtravel, our guides (who are now our friends) and Omar. Worth every penny! Thanks to all...and worth every penny!

Great Tour ever! and also the tour guide Antonio was really good!! Our small group of 9 people was fully able to experience beautiful southern part of Iceland.

The climax of our journey in Iceland. Mika and Mr. Magnus are great guide and driver. We were guided to witness the great glaciers, lakes, the cave and the northern light. It was a rich experience, definitely unforgettable!

It was a great tour ever! If you don't want to go to the gerenal attraction, you have to join it! The tour not only brought us going to the famous attraction, but also we went the secret place in Iceland. It's valuable, and we strongly recommend to join! Also, Antonio who is a good tour guide, explain everything for us and take care of everyone! It was a awesome experience.

Antonio was the best tour guide I have ever had. He not only took us to see the well known tourist areas but also took us off the beaten path to secret locations. He pushed our limits but was very knowledgeable about the geography of the lands not to put us in any danger. He was also very knowledgeable about the Icelandic history and culture and gave us great food and music recommendations. Overall this was our best experience in Iceland! Thank you, Antonio!!

our guide is a little bit shy french guy,but took good care of us. there's a secret water fall as well! :) it's amazing! i really enjoyed this tour and hope to go there again some summer! :)

The 2 day trip made our trip to iceland veey worthwhile and unforgettable. The tour guide push our limit, brought us to incredible locations to experience the beauty of iceland. Thank you once again!!!

Best tour ever! Our tour guide is the most brilliant tour guide I have met ever. Not like all other typical tour guides who mostly just deliver the introductions when needed, our tour guide interacted with the whole group just like friends during the entire trip. Apart from delivering lots of knowledgable stuff regarding the tour itself, Antonio (our tour guide) also introduced to us the Icelandic culture, history and music etc so that we get to know more about Iceland. I met a lot of great tour guides, but none of them is like Antonio. He ended up remembering all the names of our group and we actually have become friends to each other. If you are looking for a tour with full of knowledge to learn, secret attractions to see, decent people to meet and the most importantly, to get to see the real Iceland, then this is it. I guarantee you that you will be getting a lot more than what you are paying.

Brilliant trip to some secluded and beautiful waterfalls, I'm so glad we booked this trip to see more than just Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon, Iceland is a very beautiful island, driver stopped few times on our way back to admire northen lights, best expercience ever

It was a awesome experience . If a person is looking for an adventure this is it. Our guide Antonio was good and enthusiastic. He was very informative about many of the points of interest. Our driver Robert was excellent despite going thru some bad weather. The waterfalls were awesome especially Skogafoss and it's worth the hike to the top of this waterfall. The highlight was the ice caves. Our driver to the caves Atli was great taking us on a once in a lifetime experience. Caves are definitely worth the drive over glacier. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

This tour is absolutely amazing!! If you are looking for an incredible experience with amazing sights book this tour. The tour guide antonio was fabulous, he was very informative, well prepared and even when the weather didn't cooperate he made sure we still saw lots of sights and felt we got the most out of the experience. You will be taken to sights that are off the beaten path so you feel like you see more than just the most popular sights. The driver Robert did an excellent job as well. We felt completely safe and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. It is well worth it and was 100% the highlight of my trip to Iceland! The waterfalls are incredible and the glacier lagoon and cave tours are an absolute must!! I completely recommend this tour! You will love it!

I have to say, this two-day tour made my trip in Iceland amazing and unforgettable. We were so luckey to have Maria as our guide and a old sir (I do not really know how to spell her name) as our driver. They were just so dedicated and kind. I enjoyed those marvelous waterfalls, beautiful glaciers and amazing ice cave and we even spotted very strong northern lights in between. If you go to Iceland in winter, this is a must!!

We spend 2 fantastic days on this tour, taking in the breathtaking sights of the Icelandic south coast. Stunning black sand beaches, breathtaking ice lagoons and amazing waterfalls were just a few. Our awesome guide Andrea constantly fed us loads of interesting and eye opening information surrounding this beautiful country, it's people, life and wildlife and was super easy going and nice to hang out with. Great tour that I'd recommend to anybody who wants to explore Iceland and what it has to offer. Thanks to Nicetravel and to Andrea in particular. Big cheers.

Awesome 2 day tour with our exceptional guide Andrea! He is super knowledgable about all the natural wonders that Iceland has to offer and very easy going. The ice cave and southcoast tour was totally worth the effort and time. The ice cave and glacier lagoons are a must see. Only wish we had more time to spend in Iceland!!

It's really a fantastic experience ! We really enjoyed the ice cave, glaciers ~and the tour guide Laura is the best tour guide I have ever seen! Really recommended this trip.

Best tour I ever met. Especially the tour guide Antonio, who made the trip more wonderful. He was really friendly and funny. Moreover, the program of the tour was amazing, it was a effective way to experience the Iceland which likes the dream world to me. I will always remember this trip and I believe that I will come here again!

Iceland is like another world, and this tour will take you there. You will never forget the sights you see, the most beautiful landscapes I've ever seen. All the comments about the trip are true; Antonio's heart is in nature and he will share that love and passion with you. Robert and him are an amazing team. We made wonderful friends and unforgettable memories. This tour made our trip! Thanks guys!

Worth every penny!.. This tour really made my holiday something to remember. The tour guides Robert and Antonio really went the extra mile to make it spectacular. Even after a 3 hour delay on the way home due to a car accident on the road ahead they still stopped twice for us to see the northern lights when they unexpectedly appeared. Absolutely fantastic. 11/10. Tom & Sarah

My tour guide is so nice and helpful -- without him I couldn't walk though the glacier because I have no experience in walking on snow before. We went to so many stunning places and this is the most unforgettable and enjoyable trip in my life.

Antonio is superrrrr cool!!!! He is nice, helpful, funny and sooooo passionate!! He took us to some secret places that are really breath taking. Thanks to Antonio and our responsible driver Robert. We had great fun these two days. I highly recommend this trip.

Best tour I ever had. Tour program was so good and my tour guide, Andrea, was very attentive to everyone. He let me know everything I was curious about and he even found my camera's lens cover when I lost it! He did his best to show the great nature of Iceland and he did it. I will never forget those memories I got through this tour. Thank you!

I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is looking for the perfect balance of hiking in the depth of breathtaking Icelandic sceneries and an action packed adventure into the extraordinary landscape Iceland has to offer. What tops it all is a guide who genuinely takes every tour as it was his first. This is honestly one of the best tours I have been on and I will not hesitate to encourage anyone to give it a go.

What an unforgettable experience! Antonio is hands down the best guide I've had on any trip ever. You can tell just how passionate he is and how much it means to share the awe inspiring beauty of Iceland with his group. This was so much more than your run-of-the-mill tour. Words can't properly describe just how much I got out of the 2 days. Not only did I see sights I'd only dreamed of (or seen in magazines like National Geographic), but Antonio taught us all so much. I'm going to rave about this to everyone I know for ages

The tour delivered everything on the itinerary - the magnificent ice cave and glaciers, and amazing waterfalls. But there is more, with nice additional attractions. What made it even more wonderful was our knowledgeable, friendly and fun guide Antonio, and very capable and responsible driver Robert. Thanks for the great experience guys, I highly recommend this. My only regret was not doing a longer tour with them.

It was really an amazing and unforgettable experience in my life. Antonio is such a great tour guide. He took good care of everyone in the tour and his intelligent knowledge had broadened my horizon. And he tried his very best to bring us to all the famous spots within the short daytime of Iceland. My friends and I did enjoy the tour very much!!

This trip was amazing and it enriched my life undoubtedly !!! I tried loads of new stuff that I am not get used to, such like ice caving and hiking towards the waterfall! Antonio is an intelligent tour guide who have widened our horizon and he is really helpful! Miss him very much!

I really like this trip, it was amazing. The tour guide, Antonio who has broaden my knowledge about the glacier and the history of the waterfalls as well. The secret waterfalls that he bring us was incredible and the blue glacier, really worth to go. Also, it was my first time to see the white rainbow on our way back home and the crystal ice cave was the best one that I ever seen. ANTONIO is the best tour guide, he did a great job! He's so funny and helped us a lot♥

Antonio is an amazing tour guide!

The 2 days cave tour was really great and worth to go. The tour guide Antonio was friendly and I enjoyed the trip so much it was such a nice experience for me and my friend :)

The tour was absolutely brilliant. The landscape and sights are completely unrivalled to anything I have ever seen. The best thing about the whole entire tour has to be our tour guides. Antonio was animated, knowledgable, interactive and hilarious. There was not a single question I had that he did not know the answer to and he really made sure to keep the entire group happy throughout the whole trip. He was the difference between a great tour and a outstanding tour and I couldn't recommend anybody more. Robert, our driver, was also one of the most pleasant people I've come across and his driving ability was second to none.

We went on this tour a couple weeks back. On the first day we went to see four waterfalls and the beaches at vik. The secret waterfalls were truly unforgettable. I will say this to prepare you in advance- bring waterproof clothes and be prepared for a bit of a hike on the way to the last waterfall (not to long but in the snow it's something one should know in advance). I also feel that we could forgo one of the more touristic waterfalls (but that is just personal taste). Throughout the two days we stop at a fast food type of place (granted with many differing options for lunches) towards later part of the day (4pm+) so just take snacks along the way. Again, just something to note in advance. After arriving at our hotel which is a nice one with all facilities you may require (gierald) , we got our own rooms for two (which is wonderful and different from most of other tour companies). We had a dinner in the hotel (you can choose a set menu which your operators will detail or a la carte). Finally because aurora spotting was possible we took a walk a bit further out from the hotel to look for the aurora. I do believe that maybe we should have hopped on the tour bus to a further darker location to look for it as where we were there was lots of light pollution and we froze standing outside. For us seeing the aurora was very important and I didn't feel there was as much emphasis on this (I checked the websites and the activity was 4 with clear skies so there was a fair chance). The next day we woke at decent hour and had breakfast which was included. We drove for a few hours and finally reached glacier lagoon, it was a chilly day but the lagoon was nice. When we arrived we waited for the guide to iceland guides to come and give us the tour (guide to iceland takes you to the caves not nice tours specifically). They only showed about 2 hours later. I would like to say that throughout this time our guide Antonio was doing absolutely everything he can to see what was going on and fix it, so thank you, we really felt your care and attention. I will say that this is an organizational issue and there was some sort of mis communication between the two companies that ended up with us waiting there for a long while. One more thing, the ice caves were flooded- we only found this out for certain when the guides came, I knew this was probably true from a day before (reading other websites) and apparently the company sent a notice to all participants who ordered the tour except for us- as no one knew 100% until they told us we could not go. This comes off as odd to me and I wish they would prepare us better in advanced for this option (i understand that weather can be temperamental and we hope for the best in Iceland but I sent a mail a day before confirming everything was on and no one mentioned there may be problems, only on the drive there they said maybe we cannot go and we will see). We eventually did the glacier hike and saw as much of the cave as we could. I will say we were very happy in the end with what we saw and the experience. Then we drove home. On the way home myself and my other half started spotting something that seemed to be an aurora, eventually we stopped and we were lucky as it got brighter and even danced for us. In summary, I have some points I truly hope to improve and they are mostly with informing participants of the itinerary a bit more prior to arriving on the tour (mentioning the hotel beforehand, about the hike, about chances of seeing caves/ auroras, or where meals are) additionally to making sure prior to arrivals in different locations that other guides or facilitators are ready for us and know we are coming etc ( I am in the planning business and it seems that a phone call a day ahead and a phone call on the way would have sorted this out or would have given viable time to change schedules to fit itinerary and go to the national park perhaps etc). However, we did feel we got our money's worth with the wonderful guide Antonio taking us to secret and cool waterfalls, with the private hotel room, with the glacier walk (doable to all and they give you the right equipment) and with a bit of luck for seeing the aurora.

We had an incredible two-day tour of southern Iceland with our top-shelf tour guide Antonio Pérez. This tour was one of the most superb activities we did in Iceland and the best-spent 2 days of our week-long trip. The tour enabled us to see the vast wonders of nature in magnificently beautiful Iceland and receive unrivaled personal insights from Antonio. It was well worth every penny. Antonio has a passion for people and nature that is simply immeasurable and unmatched by anyone. To top it off we had an amazing tour group driver whose name was Robert. His extraordinary driving skills kept us safe on Iceland’s potentially dangerous winter roads and one-lane bridges. I would highly recommend booking and requesting the Antonio and Robert duo! The tour was so unparalleled and exceptional that we were inspired to plan a summer tour of Iceland.
