Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsarlón and Fjallárslón are glacier lagoon at the south end of the glacier of Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe, between the Skaftafell preservation area in Vatnajökull National Park and Höfn. Jokuslarlon Glacier Lagoon is next to the Icelandic Ring Road. The lake is filled with icebergs, which are calving off the Breidamerkurjokull Glacier. At Jökulsárlón and Fjallárslón, you have the option of an amphibian boat tour or a more exciting zodiac boat tour. We recommend pre-booking to guarantee availability upon arrival. The lagoon has many floating icebergs that have broken off Vatnajökull, Europe’s biggest glacier, and floats towards the ocean. Along the way, we will stop at some of the most popular attractions along the South Coast, like Seljalandsfoss waterfall, Skógafoss Waterfall, and Reynisfjara Black Beach.

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

One of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls is, without a doubt, the Seljalandsfoss waterfall due to the reason that it’s possible to walk behind the waterfall and get great pictures and experience the power, mist, and the beautiful view behind it.

Skogafoss Waterfall

Driving east along the cliffs of Eyjajökull to the magnificent Skogafoss waterfall. You will get the chance to take great photos and take a small hike up to the top of Skogafoss to witness the power from the waterfall above. It drops down 25 m (80ft), and it’s one of Iceland’s largest waterfall. If you visited while the sun is shining, you’d be able to see beautiful rainbows from the strong spray of mist.

The Black Beach Reynisfjara

The Black Lava Beach has formed long basalt cliffs or columnar igneous rocks formed at the cooling surface tend to be propagated down the lava as it cools, creating long, geometric columns. Thus, as lava cools to form basalt, it may crack in a hexagonal (or other) shape and include columns. Reynisfjara Black Beach has mighty waves that have helped shaped the fantastic cliffs—making them one of the area’s most sought-after attractions to visit. The cliffs bare many interesting birds; among other species, you might see fulmar, guillemot, razorbill, gannet, and various types of seagulls. By summertime, the cliffs are filled with puffins.
