The Glacier Lagoon & Diamond Beach

We will pick you up in the morning, then head east out of Reykjavik. The first stop will be the freefalling waterfall of Seljarlandsfoss below the volcano Eyjafjallajökull. You can walk behind the waterfall where you can see it from an interesting view and feel the spray and drizzle on your face. From there, we have a short drive further east to see the waterfall Skogarfoss. We will then drive alongside Myrdalsjokull glacier and to Dyrholaey, which forms an arch into the ocean and from where you have a fantastic view of Reynisdrangar, the surrounding countryside, and black sand beach. We will have a picturesque drive, with the glacier Vatnajokull on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. By the roots of the glacier, you’ll see the Glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon, where magnificent icebergs float in the lagoon breaking from the glacier tongue. You can often see seals swimming in the lagoon or sunbathing on the icebergs. You can take a boat tour in the lagoon from mid-May to mid-September, which we highly recommend. You will have time to walk on Diamond beach. You’ll find plenty of photosites in the national park. This may be one of Reykjavik’s longest day tours, but it is also highly recommended.

This itinerary is dependent on the road conditions and weather. Therefore, warm clothes and sturdy shoes are recommended.

You will have enough time to enjoy and create great memories to take back home on this day tour.

Highlights: Black glacier Beach, Svinafellsjokull Glacier, Skaftafell national park, Diamond beach, Glacial rivers, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, Vatnajokull glaciers, Small villages, and more.
