Step right up to experience the glaciers, icebergs and waterfalls that give Iceland its stunning reputation, culminating at one of the most popular attractions of all: Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This tour is for anyone who would like to see the landscapes which make Iceland one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world.

You’ll be picked up at your designated pickup location in Reykjavík and glide down the south coast, past sun-sparkled fields of grass, fields of black lava cooled and hardened after eruptions long ago, sheep and horses playing with their young in the glens, and cliffs and mountains rising high over the land.

The lunch break will be held at a local restaurant where you can discover Icelandic dishes! Once you have stretched your legs, you’ll continue on the coast past Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland.

Finally, you’ll reach one of the crowning glories of Iceland, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The ancient ice in the lake breaks off from the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, making its way through the lagoon before being released into the sea.

You’ll have plenty of time to explore here, watching out for gulls and seals that play in the lagoon and admiring the blue colour of the icebergs. You can also take a walk on nearby Diamond Beach with its black sand, another hint towards Iceland's volcanic past. Chunks of ice wash on shore here and sparkle in the sun like diamonds on a bed of velvet, which is what inspired the name.

You’ll make your way back to the West and stop in Vík, a small town on the coast and an important stop on the Ring Road. You’ll experience the cute cafés and souvenir shops during this dinner break.

On the way back, you’ll be passing one of Iceland’s most famous waterfall: Seljalandsfoss. An additional secret stop will be planned in this itinerary!

So hurry now and grab a seat on this fantastic bus tour to see the true natural jewels of Iceland’s south coast. Check the booking availability by choosing a date.

We traveled with big comfortable bus. There was a wi-fi, conditioner. The bus was half-filled and we could stretch legs. This fact made this excursion the best among the others trips not only in Iceland but in all ours trips. The trip bring a lot of impressions. It was raining almost all day but my husband liked it. We saw all types of summer weather in one voyage. The time of all stops was too little we have to deal with it. The best part of excursion was guide. He told us a lot of tales of Iceland, legends. It is always to pleasure to hear the person who not only loves his country but know a lot about it

The guide gave a lot information about Iceland nature and history, so we were never bored! We had decent time at each location so it's not too rushed or too long. It is indeed a very long day so great thanks to our guide!

It was AMAZING, the views, our guide was really cool and told us so much history about Iceland! Seljalandsfoss was speechless, you HAVE to take a chance and pass behind the waterfall, do it with waterproof clothes. Can wait to come back!

I loved this tour! The day is quite long, but there is so much to see and the diamond beak and lagoon itself are well worth the travel. We had a great guide as well - Matt - who was very knowledgeable and his sense of humour made the distances to travel way shorter than they were. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat.

The longest and arguably the best trip from this provider, covering all most important spots along the South Coast of Iceland. Our tour guide, Dr. Hauser, looking himself like a viking, was extremely knowledgeable and high with energy, fuelling us on the journey. Would book a trip with this provider again! 10/10
