Fully booked
Visitors to Jökulsárlón will find they can sit on the shores of the glacier lagoon and marvel over them for hours.
Along the South Coast of Iceland is Reynisfjara black-sand-beach, best known for Reynisdrangar seastacks.
As you leave Reykjavík for Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, the first major natural feature you will come to is the waterfall of Seljalandsfoss.
The village of Vík has a charming church that is surrounded by lupins in the summer time.
By the village of Skógar on the South Coast is the majestic waterfall Skógafoss, which can be up to twenty-five metres wide in summer.
It is little wonder so many fantasy and sci-fi films have been filmed in Iceland when looking upon the South Coast's mystical Reynisfjara beach.

Join this tour to see the stunning, annual fireworks show at Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon in the Vatnajokull Region. Illuminated icebergs bathed in colour from the magnificent firework show, in nature's most spectacular surrounding, create an extraordinary experience for spectators.

The fireworks show is an annual event and 2017 marks the 17th time it is held. Number of visitors has been escalating through the years and in 2016 about 2000 visitors enjoyed the show. The fireworks show is a collaboration between the Hornafjordur search and rescue association, Jokulsarlon boat trips and the Vatnajokull Region.
