South Coast Tour | Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Vik & Waterfalls

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 accommodation in Reykjavik 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.

You’ll make your way to Vík, a small town on the coast and an important stop on the Ring Road. You’ll experience the cute cafés and souvenir shops and can take time to stroll through the town, overlooking the black sand beach and Atlantic ocean below. 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. If you like, you can also purchase some lunch at the Lagoon Visitors Center. 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.

On the way back, you’ll be passing two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.

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.
