Full description
Your driver-guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik in a modified 4x4 jeep and take you on a spectacular journey through Iceland's South Coast all the way to the beautiful Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. On this private tour, you will have plenty of time to enjoy each site. Stops for lunch and dinner will be made, as well as extra comfort stops. You will visit the mesmerizing Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, two of the most iconic waterfalls in Iceland, before heading to the Dakota Plane Wreck. Located on the stunning Solheimasandur black beach in South Iceland, the remains of a plane that crashed here in 1973 have now become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. The wild landscape makes it a perfect location for beautiful pictures. It takes about one hour each way to walk to the plane, the walk is easy but it is often rainy and windy in this part of the country so be prepared for an adventure. After visiting the Dakota plane wreck, your private tour will continue to the fishing village of Vík, complete with its black beaches and sea stacks. The drive will then continue along beautiful lava fields and amazing scenery to get to Skaftafell National Park, where you will see amazing glaciers from up close. The highlight of the tour is then the spectacular Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, with its floating icebergs and Diamond Beach. You will have some time here to explore the lagoon and the nearby Diamond Beach, which takes its name from the shining ice blocks on its shore.
