2 Day – South Coast, Ice Cave, Skaftafell & Jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon

Day One – The Grand South Coast and Northern Lights
Imagine this: Huge thundering waterfalls, endless rolling valleys, beautiful black beaches, extraordinary glaciers and small villages with unique landscapes in between. This is exactly what you can expect as you venture your way down the south coast of Iceland. Experience the secluded drive down ring road no. 1, to the famous Eyjafjallajokull, home of the massive eruption that halted all European air travel in 2010. Here you will have the chance to explore two of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland: Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. On a clear day, you will have the opportunity to see the two surrounding glaciers, Eyjafjallajökull and Myrdalsjokull. Continuing on, the drive takes us to the coastal village of Vik where you will find Reynisfjara, the black sand beach, with some fantastic sights such as the picturesque basalt column formations and the famous Reynisdrangar peaks. Throughout the entire day, you can expect to see breathtaking landscape consisting of vast lava fields, waterfalls, black sands and glacier tongues.
After enjoying the south coast marvels, we’ll head deeper into the countryside to our accommodation place. Here we will enjoy a relaxing evening and recharge for the upcoming day. When the conditions are right, we will hunt for the Northern Lights. The countryside, away from the city lights, is perfect for spotting this natural phenomenon.

Day Two- Land of Ice
The second day of the tour is sure to unravel the excitement of glacier exploration on more than one level. We will head off early in the morning to the renown Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon, home of the massive floating icebergs and the location for several blockbuster movies like Batman Begins and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to name a few.
Next we head to the Crystal Cave where our certified guides will assure a safe and exciting experience. Ice caves, like the crystal cave, are only found during the wintertime when the glacial rivers retract and the water freezes. New caves are formed in different locations each year. Ice Caves give you unparalleled photographic opportunity where you can capture the blue light passing through the glacier ice.
After visiting the Ice Cave, we start making our way back to Reykjavik. Before we leave this magnificent area behind we will stop at Skaftafell Nature Reserve, a part of Vatnajokull National Park. Surrounded by amazing jagged mountains and glacier-topped peaks, the scenery consists of indistinguishable features making it a definite highlight of the tour. On the drive back, after the night falls, we will make sure to look for the Northern Lights.

If the ice cave can not be entered due to conditions we refund 10.000 ISK.
