Embark on this 12-hour private tour to the Vatnajokull National Park, centered around the world-famous Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Travelers keen on exploring the icy wilderness of Iceland with the convenience of a private guide will love the itinerary of this experience.

Your adventure in Iceland begins with a convenient morning pick-up from your hotel in Reykjavik. A spacious minibus accommodating up to eight people will be your tour vehicle for the next 11 to 12 hours.

With the guidance of a knowledgeable local guide, you'll embark on a day of exploration, learning, and discovery in one of Iceland's most breathtaking regions. The guide will enrich your experience with exciting trivia, local stories, and folklore about the attractions on the itinerary.

Unlike crowded bus tours, this private tour provides a more personalized and immersive experience. With the flexibility to explore at your own pace and linger at each stop, you'll have the opportunity to fully immerse in the beauty of Iceland's landscapes and landmarks.

Your itinerary continues with a scenic drive along the South Coast of Iceland, one of the most popular regions in the country. The South Coast boasts panoramic views of rugged coastlines, volcanic landscapes, waterfalls, and towering glaciers. 

Upon arrival at the Vatnajokull National Park, home to the largest ice cap in Europe, your first stop is at the Skaftafell Nature Reserve. 

Here, you'll embark on a 1.5-hour hiking tour to discover the breathtaking beauty of the nature reserve. Your main destination in the area is the majestic Svartifoss waterfall, renowned for its basalt column formations and picturesque surroundings.

The highlight of your tour comes next, which is a visit to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Jokulsarlon ranks among Iceland's most famous natural attractions because of its unique features.

Jokulsarlon is known for its thousands of floating icebergs against mighty glaciers. Seeing these ice chunks of different sizes and colors up close is one of the most exciting activities you can do in the land of fire and ice.

No trip to Jokulsarlon is complete without a visit to Diamond Beach, where glittering ice pieces from the glacier lagoon wash ashore. The ice contrasting against the black sand beach makes the perfect subject for landscape and portrait photography. 

Besides the thrilling attractions, your itinerary includes a delicious lunch at a local restaurant featuring Icelandic and international cuisine. The food is already included in the tour price.

After a day of exploration, the guide will drive you back to Reykjavik and drop the group off at your accommodation.
