The highlight of the South Coast is the otherworldly Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where you can sail among great icebergs, and walk along where they have stranded at the nearby Diamond Beach. A boat trip around the glacier lagoon is just one option you can add to your stay. You can also go horse riding, glacier hiking, snowmobiling, and even on a trip inside the ice caves. All these adventures are at your fingertips, and if reserved with the tour booking, they come at a special, discounted price, to help you add more excitement to your arctic holiday.  We understand that you are visiting Iceland to experience nature at its best, and to escape the city and its crowds. That is why we have included hidden gems and spectacular attractions not known to many others on this tour. The itinerary we'll provide you with will ensure you don't miss a thing. So don't hesitate; jump on this opportunity to see some of Iceland's best attractions in just five days! Check availability by choosing a date.
