Day 2: SOUTH COAST HIGHLIGHTS-JOKULSARLON

Today we head out to explore the marvellous South Coast of Iceland. You will travel through the scenic farmlands of the south on your way to the first attraction, the very unusual and photogenic Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It is possible to walk behind the cascade for a unique vantage point. Glacial water which has flowed from Eyjafjallajökull, the mountain glacier housing the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano in its depths, tumbles through this 60m high waterfall. The cascade actually drops from the former sea cliffs into a fairly shallow pool, you can clearly trace the ancient sea cliffs as they extend for hundreds of kilometres.

The next stop is at Skógafoss Waterfall. These very graceful but quite powerful falls also drop around 60m. At the base of the waterfall, there is a pathway, leading up through many steps to the start of a trail which passes between two great volcano mountain glaciers, Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjokull, home to a highly explosive volcano, the notorious Katla. You will have time to climb the steps to the top to see truly outstanding views.

You will also see Reynisfjara, a stunning black sand beach with incredible black basalt column formations rising like trolls off the shore – the famous Reynisdrangar ocean.

At the end of the day will be at Jokulsarlon, the surreal glacier lagoon at the edge of the Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier or tongue of the great Vatnajökull glacier. Huge icebergs calve off the glacier and float across the lagoon on their way to the Atlantic Ocean. You may feel as though you are in a film and in a way you will be, footage of many famous Hollywood movies has been shot at Jökulsárlón!

Experience: South coast scenery | Seljalandsfoss Waterfall |Skógafoss Waterfall | Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon | Northern Lights (if we get lucky)

 

Day 3: JOKULSARLON - SKAFTAFELL - SOUTH COAST - REYKJAVIK

After a good breakfast, we pay another visit to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon to witness more magnificent blue/white icebergs of all shapes and sizes. There is also time to walk to the nearby black sands of the Diamond Beach and wander a little, looking out for seals and photographing more magnificent icebergs, a few are washed ashore where they glisten like diamonds as they rest on the dramatic black beach.

When we leave the lagoon we head back south to stop at the Skaftafell area of the vast Vatnajokull National Park. You will see the glacier tongues which reach down like the talons of a great ice bird from Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. The views in this area have a fairytale and otherworldly quality about them. We make more stops along the beautiful south coast whilst we still have daylight – then keep an eye out for the northern lights when darkness falls if the conditions are suitable.

Return back to Reykjavik around 19:00 and check into your accommodation.

Meals: Breakfast
Experience: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon | The Diamond Beach | Skaftafell National Park | Glacier views

Experience one of Iceland's natural wonders, surrounded by snowy mountains and otherworldly lava fields. The stunning geothermal lagoon, glimmering among the snow and lava fields, stays at a constant toasty temperature and the water is home to blue-green algae, mineral salts and silica, and has been known to work wonders on problem skin and tired muscles. The blue-green algae make the skin soft and the mineral salts detoxify the body and the white silica mud exfoliates the skin.
