Join the adventure on this magical South Coast tour to the majestic icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, one of the most beautiful and dramatic spots in the whole of Iceland.

On your journey to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, you will be privy to a plethora of amazing natural sights; countless waterfalls cascade majestically down towering cliff faces, meadows of quintessential farmland sprawl to the shores of the Atlantic, gentle rivers trickle and slice the landscape. From your seat, you’ll feel as though you’ve entered a magical fantasy land, a world that almost defies the imagination.

On top of all that, you will traverse the black sand deserts of Skeiðarársandur and Sólheimasandur. You will also pass through the charming fishing village of Vik, see the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss and even the highly popular Vatnajökull National Park, with its giant of a glacier and unique flora and fauna.

At Jökulsárlón, you will be left speechless and enthralled at the sight of diamond-blue icebergs bobbing and moving gracefully through the water, the glacier tall and mighty in the background. Many of you might recognise the glacier from such films as Tomb Raider and James Bond: Die Another Day! If not, you’ll certainly recognise the feeling of peace and tranquillity that overcomes you on first sight of the icebergs.

The sound of the icebergs rubbing and scraping against one another creates a satisfying groan, made all the more perfect by happy seals playing together in the water. You can also check out the shoreline, where the icebergs move off into the sea, creating fantastic photo opportunities! This is a holiday location you will never want to forget!

So what are you waiting for? Don’t delay in booking this fantastic day tour across the beautiful landscapes of South Iceland, finally arriving at the tour highlight, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Check availability by choosing a date!

My favorite day trip in Iceland. Some amazing landscapes you will hardly see elsewhere. We have also done at least 4 or 5 stops on the way there and back to see waterfalls and take pictures. GO!

The first day tour in Iceland, a worthy 14 hours tour! Although we spent most time on the bus, I understood it was because the long distance between Reykjavík and Jokulsarlon, the southern coast sightseeing is absolutely worthy to experience and you won’t regret it! Love black beach and diamond-blue floating iceberg! That’s fabulous! ( the only regret thing was that we stayed at Lava museum so short that I couldn’t experience the whole interactive exhibition, but it’s nice to leave something imperfect so that you have reason coming back again:)

I took this tour on April 24th. Our driver was Oley and our guide was Daisy. Daisy (not her real name, but she said we could call her that since we probably can't remember her Icelandic name) was a great guide! She was funny and told us many facts about Iceland and the sites we were visiting. I had a great time on this trip! Even though we were on a big tour bus, it was only around sixty to seventy percent full. I enjoyed all the sites we stopped at: Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Diamond Beach, Skogafoss, the town of Vik, and Seljalandsfoss. I don't have anything negative to say about this trip. I loved looking out the window on the bus. The south coast of Iceland is beautiful!

Guide was lovely, told us a lot of history and geology about Iceland. Although it was a long journey, every effort paid off eventually when we arrived at the glacier lagoon. Hope to visit Iceland again in the future.

I recommend you this tour if you don't have much time to spent in the south. The places are amazing and it would be better to spent two days there, but for the one who want to save time and take an easy tour is perfect.

One of the best experiences I’ve had. Iceland is definitely a must visit. The tour was amazing, diamond beach and glacier lagoon are something you’ll never forget. Since we had only a few daylight hours ( it was in January) we visited waterfalls while it was still/already dark nevertheless Skógafoss is stunning, if you get close enough you’ll feel true power of nature but don’t forget to take waterproof clothes. Also take a seat on the driver’s side ( all the highlights will be on the left side). Our guide was very nice and we learned a lot of interesting facts about Iceland along with some funny ‘saga’ stories. It’s a long ride but there are enough stops and although we had only a few hours of daylight as I mentioned earlier tour was managed very well so that we could all its highlights.
