Based on 45 traveller reviews

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.

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!

We had an awesome time! We would definitely take this tour again! Our tour guide was great too! He was very informative and also told us some folklore and personal stories that I found really interesting.

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

It was a wonderful tour with Bus Travel Iceland covering many spots along the South coast of Iceland. Though it is a 15 hour trip we didn't feel so; full credits to our guide, Matt who kept the whole group engaged right from pickup to drop briefing us about all the places we we're visiting, fun facts about Iceland, a few sagas and also a lot of local tips.

This trip is awesome!!! Well worth the time and money! Simon was a great guide, with a lovely sense of humor and great stories about the Vikings! Very skilled driver, which was kind of nice with blizzards etc. on the way.. ;-) Even stopped a few extra times, to see some great waterfalls and the Northern lights. Don't forget to bring some snacks and enjoy!! 10/10 would recommend!

I jist loved this tour. The guide was so nice and told us stories about trolls and beliefs. The driver also was amazing. I told them that i had another tour with the same conpany and they did all to arrange my connwction on time with my second trip (northern lights) The day was beautiful, there a re no words to describe the views of this trip. All the contrast of different roads. Priceless and speechless are my definition for this one

It's a long day but you don't quite feel it as they make regular stops for us to stretch our legs, have toilet breaks, grab food and drink! Iceland is such a beautiful country - I particularly enjoyed visiting Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, you capture the best photos there, it's just breathtaking! Our tour guide provided us with lots of interesting stories there and back. Perfect amount of time spent in each location. I plan to make another trip back to Iceland and use these guys again for an Ice Cave tour! Thank you so much!! :)

Es war ein wunderschöner Tagestour im Winter, nur leider konnten wir uns Vik beim Tageslicht nicht anschauen. Es wäre vielleicht besser gewesen, da eine Mittagspause statt der Abendessenpause zu haben. Sonst war es super, und dank dem netten und viel erzählenden, amüsanten Guide, machten wir einen Halt auch beim Skogafoss Waterfall, was eigentlich nicht im Plan stand. Also es war ein super Ausflug, kann jedem nur empfehlen!
