A fully packed day tour through Iceland´s south coast!
You will be traveling in a Luxury SUV through the picturesque southern coastline towards Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. The drive will take you through the villages of Selfoss, Vik, and Kirkjubaejarklaustur as well as Skogafoss waterfall, a mighty and much-photographed waterfall on the south coast.
We then continue through the vast desert of Skeidararsandur. An area which can be prone to sandstorms. Many of Iceland‘s most significant glacial rivers run into the Atlantic Ocean off the south shore, and each year they carry millions of tons of black volcanic sand, continually altering the shape of the coastline and creating vast black deserts.
Before reaching the lagoon, we will pass Oraefajokull glacier, home to Iceland‘s highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur, at 2119 m.
Jokulsarlon is a stunning glacial lagoon that is changing as the massive glacier tongue retreats. Icebergs of all shapes, sizes and in many hues of blue, turquoise and white, break off from the glacier and float around the lagoon. For a closer view, you can go on a cruise aboard an amphibious vessel and sail amongst the oddly-shaped ice formations.
Jokulsarlon is a natural wonder that will leave you speechless upon visiting.
