Full description
This small group adventure starts from Reykjavik where your guide will pick you up from one of the authorized pickup points in the Reykjavik downtown area. First stop will be the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is one of the few waterfalls in Iceland that you can walk behind.

Next up is the powerful Skogafoss waterfall, located in the peaceful area of Skogar, which is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, surrounded by beautiful scenery. A trail located on the right side of the waterfall offers explorers the chance to view the waterfall from various angles. Then, visit the local village of Vik where you will have time to have lunch.

The famous Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon will be your next stop. The beautiful picturesque glacier lagoon has been featured in various Hollywood movies for good reason. See majestic icebergs floating in the peaceful lagoon, and add an (optional) boat ride if you would like to get closer to the floating icebergs. Note that the boat ride is not included in the tour but can be added as an extra.

The Diamond Beach is just a short walk from the Lagoon, known for having diamond like icebergs stranded on the black volcanic beach. After exploring here it’s time for dinner at Skaftafell.

The long daylight during the summer season will give you a chance to visit the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach on your way back to Reykjavik. Known for the amazing scenery all around, most notably the unique basalt column formations, Reynisfjara is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches you can visit in Iceland.

You should arrive back in Reykjavik around 11:30 PM.

Очень понравилась экскурсия с замечательным гидом- Марией и Петром. Все было замечательно. Успели все! И приехали в 23 .00 уже в Рейкявик! Мария- просто отличный гид и водитель как говорится от Бога! Была опасная дорога а она прекрасно справлялась и при этом еще рассказывала об Исландии. Все отлично! Рекомендую всем! СПАСИБО Мария!Это запомнится на всю жизнь!

Good guides who told a lot. (Maria and Arthur?). However, very bad places in the back of the bus. These 4 places should not be sold during such a long drive. Little room and window too low (because these seats were higher), so we got neck pain and couldn't even see things on the other side. Unfortunately! Furthermore, well arranged.
