DAY ONE

We meet in Reykjavik, hop up in the mini bus and then drive to the beautiful Iceland South Coast. On our tour, you will see the most impressive waterfalls in the world like Gljúfrabúi, and you will even have a chance to take a walk behind some of them, like Seljalandsfoss. After a few kilometres, there comes the mighty Skógafoss waterfall known for its double rainbow phenomena. Although the legend says that behind this cascade there is a treasure chest, it would be clever to let legends be legends, because Skógafoss is a very powerful waterfall, with a fall of 60 metres and admiring its beauty from a safe spot is surely wiser. There are 527 stairs along this gorgeous waterfall, and they are worth climbing, because watching the waterfall from its falling point is a unique experience, not to mention, the view is priceless. South Iceland is wonderful, because every few kilometres there is something special to see. After Skógafoss, driving along the ocean on the right, with meadows and hills filled with sheep and horses on the left, we will come to the magical place called Dyrhólaey. The sight there is magnificent, any side your turn you will have a grandiose view; to the south there is the Atlantic Ocean, to the north the glaciers and mountains, to the west black sand beach which is our next destination and to the east black lava columns. In front of the peninsula, there is a gigantic black arch of lava standing in the sea, which gave the peninsula its name, meaning “door hill island”. There is also a lighthouse which sits at the top of the formation facing the ocean. Not so far away from Dyrhólaey, a charming town of Vik is situated that we look at before we drive for overnight accommodation in a nice country hotel.

DAY TWO

Rested and ready to take a new adventure, we are heading up from the picturesque to the Jökulsárlón. We will see Eldhraun lava fields, Svínafellsjökull, and the amazing Diamond beach. We will take a boat tour around the lagoon on a zodiac boat where we can approach the ice and you will be able to sail between all kinds of icebergs, some of them are over 1000 years old. The structure and contour of these icebergs are a special treat for your camera. After the sailing, it is time to get back to the land, and slowly wrap things up, because our exquisite journey ends here, and we are driving back to the city.

We accept these major credit cards.
