Full description

Embark on a full-day guided tour from Reykjavik to the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. Witness the mighty Hvannadalshnjúkur mountain and black sand desert that sprawls between Skaftafell National Park and the lagoon.  Stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascades to reach the other side. Continue to the majestic Skógafoss waterfall and admire the impressive 60-meter drop. Continue to Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon and stroll along the shores of the lake. Immerse yourself in the tranquility of the area as 1,000 to 1,500-year-old ice breaks away from the Vatnajökull glacier and floats silently on the water. Recognize locations from some of the many movies that have been filmed in the area, such as Batman Begins and Tomb Raider.

Stop at the spectacular Diamond Beach and admire the strand of black sand speckled with clumps of ice, giving an appearance of shimmering diamonds. In the warmer months, enjoy an added boat ride around the lagoon and witness the floating ice bergs up-close.

You will pass through magnificent places, visit a couple of waterfalls and the glacial lagoon which deserve it especially if it is a sunny day. The stop at the city of Vik is not worth it, you only stop for an hour to eat, even if the beach is a stone's throw away, others in the west of the island deserve more. It is many hours by bus and this is a bit tiring, the guide did not involve us much. They picked us up from the hotel.

EXCITING!!!!!!!!

It's a unique ride! You can get acquainted with the fantastic and surprisingly beautiful nature of Iceland. We had a very good guide Camil, who organized a wonderful trip. We thank our driver for the safe journey. And we say "BIG THANK YOU" to the organizers of this tour, you make people happy!

Quando si hanno aspettative alte è molto facile rimanere delusi . Questa giornata invece ha superato ogni aspettativa. Oltre ai luoghi visitati che sono incredibili , l’organizzazione è impeccabile . Forse ci vorrebbe qualche minuto in più in alcune soste ma per vedere così tante cose in una sola giornata è il prezzo da pagare . Comunque si riesce a vedere tutto. Consigliatissimo (suggerisco opzione con barca)
