Full description
Escape the city for the day and spend the day immersed in Iceland's unique nature. After getting picked up from your hotel in Reykjavik, begin your jeep ride along the southern coast. First, head to Seljalandsfoss, one of the country's most famous waterfalls, and follow the path which leads behind the waterfall for a unique view of this beauty. You will also have the opportunity to admire the dark lava columns of Skaftafell waterfall, the black sand beaches in Vik and the village of Kirkjubaejarklaustur.

Later, continue your drive along the vast black sand coast to reach Iceland's highest mountain, admiring a volcano along the way. Your final stop is the famous glacier lagoon, Jökulsárlón. Here, marvel at icebergs of all sizes and the surrounding turquoise waters.

Finish your day with a boat trip into the lagoon to sail among the oddly-shaped ice formations and watch as birds fly overhead and friendly seals swim in the water beside you. You may even have the opportunity to see the world-famous Northern Lights between September and March. After your boat trip, get dropped off back at your hotel in Reykjavik at the end of the day.
