The highlights of the tour are Jokulsarlon boat trip – the glacier lagoon in front of the biggest glacier in Europe which is located in the most amazing National park in Iceland AND a walk on blue ice in Solheimajokull. Our glacier guides are professionals and they will provide you all safety equipment needed for the Glacier Hike (crampons, ice axes, etc) and teach you how to use them in a correct way.

The scenery and views from the Glacier is stunning and you see ice sculptures and the deep crevasses of the glacier in a very clear way.

If you want to witness one of Iceland’s most incredible natural phenomenon, then you should book Jokulsarlon tour now. There is an extremely limited availability for this unique tour.


Day 1 – South coast, waterfalls and glacier hike

We start with visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui and Irafoss. We make a stop where guests can buy lunch.

As we continue we will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where we take a Glacier Hike for about 1,5 hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier.

A bit further is the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings.

We will be staying overnight in a Nicehostel Seljalands, a very cosy accommodation close to the famous Seljalandsfoss.

Day 2 – The amazing Glacier lagoon with boat ride and Skaftafell national park

Today, you will take a close look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. After a stop in the lovely village of Vik we drive to the Easth where we visit the waterfall Foss á Sidu and the National park in Skaftafell where we make a stop where guests can buy lunch.

Then we head to the amazing Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you will have a boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. The lagoon is full of huge chunks of ice which crack off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin. There is a good possibility of seeing seals swimming around the huge icebergs.

After enjoying this wonderful experience we head back in the afternoon towards Reykjavik where we estimate to arrive around 21:15 (09:15pm).

Amazing tour


We Had an amazing overnight tour with guide Marick. He is wonderful with vast knowledge of the area. We saw everything that was on the itinerary and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the tour. The accommodation was provided in Nice Hostel which was fabulous. Clean beds and baths and welcoming staff. I highly recommend Nice Travels.

Wonderful tour


It’s very impressive and enjoyable trip in Iceland especially to join 2 days Jokulsarlon tour with Nice Travel. Although the weather was not good, I’m excited to have a glacier hike. Thanks for David to take care of us for these 2 days tour Nice Iceland, Nice Travel, Nice David

nice tour!


At first, my rating is not due to the guide. (Because of the bad weather... I was so surprised changing weather... rainy, rain gutter, windy...especially, windy thinks like a typhoon!) Our guide worked very very good. I spent good time during the tour. The best impression of the tour for me is diamond beach. I have understood why people call "diamond". And hiking glacier was awsome experience. It was hard and so tired, but I was be able to see very beautiful view. (It was also impressive that I ate a piece of glacier and drinked glaciermelt!) All places were amazing. Thanks for our guide Christina and group member.

So happy we booked with Nice Travel! We had an excellent experience. Thank you to our guide Michel, so nice and caring, adjusted the schedule according to the weather. We got to do everything we wanted and had some good weather! Glacier hike was awesome!

A fun, awesome, and best tour! 2D S.Coast Jokullsarlon


This tour was awesome and really made my week long solo trip so much more amazing. Our guide Christina was knowledgable, fun, kind, and I wish I had her music playlist. She was a good driver and instructor on the ice (some of us *cough* me *cough* were a teeny scared). Our group really bonded and we loved our Nicehostel stay. That place was amazing and comfortable!! The days were jam packed and we saw some great gems. Countless amazing memories of this tour. A little sad when the tour ended.

Jokulsarlon 2D1N tour


Christina was awesome as our guide. She interacted with all of us in the group. She was entertaining. During the glacier hike, she took care of everyone. For me and my friends who had not walked on the glacier before, it was reassuring to know she made sure we moved safely.

The best among all


Although our guide was not the best in English, he was the nicest guide I’ve met in Iceland. The whole trip was arranged perfectly with a pace that I felt very comfortable with. The lodging was great and the bus was very roomy with good WiFi and charger.

Wonderful tour!


The tour did exactly what they said they would, the glacier hike was really cool and so was the boat ride around the glacier lagoon. The hostel was simple but clean and the soup they served that night was perfect for a blustery windy day in Iceland!

The tour was amazing. Our guide Eynar was so friendly and took us to so many great and breathtaking spots.

Amazing experience with amazing guide!


I can say this tour was the most beautiful trip in my life. South Coast of Iceland is so beautiful, nature scenery looks like in fairy tale. Beautiful waterfalls, mountains, beaches, and so many, many more. This trip made me feel I have had a week full of adventures. I never thought I would make it to the top of the glacier, but our guide Mikka made us believe we could. And wow, so great feeling after you have reached the top of it! Mikka (Michael) felt like our family member who always checked if we are ok and happy, very friendly and professional guide. And Mikka, you have such a subtle taste in music. It felt so relaxing to listen to such great Icelandic and foreign music between our stops. The tour was in a small group which made this experience more pleasant and personal. Thank you Mikka and thank you Nicetravel! I will come back again!

Great tour on the South Coast, in a small group, with so many wonderful sights to see, waterfalls, glaciers, icebergs... Marek was a friendly guide and acted very professionally during the glacier hike. The hostel was also very welcoming, friendly and clean. Only downside is that some sights were crowded with other groups at the time we were there.

Easy way to check off the bucket list!!


The South Coast trip was well organized and hit all of the must do places! The hotel/hostel included for the overnight was convenient to the attractions. It was tastefully decorated and the staff members were very friendly and welcoming. Food options for dinner were limited (soup and pizza) but tasty. Christina our tour guide was the STAR!! She was so knowledgeable, friendly and really made the trip a 5 star!!

Wonderful 2 day tour


We had a wonderful tour with David ! He was very knowledgeable about the sites, gave us lots of information as was genuine about his love of Iceland ! The hostel we stayed at needs some upgrading ...the food offered was poor ...if a chef is not available then maybe build in a restaurant stop at he end of the days to accommodate overnight guests.

An awesome adventure


Great group! Very knowledgeable tour guide, answered questions and provided much needed information. Also helped with photos. Everything was first class. Only suggestion, be aware the glacier walk is more difficult than "easy"

Great trip with Nice Travel


It was great to join the tour to South coast, glacier hike, and boat trip in glacier lagoon with Nice Travel. The tour guide, Eddy, is very nice bringing us to see the venues more than the locations listed in the programme. He made us laugh and felt excited with the next destination we are about to reach. He also brought us to a very cozy restaurant in Skógar for lunch. Hotel in Seljalandfoss is very lovely. Travel with agency can make the trip more fun as you gonna meet new people. Going with Nice Travel will make your trip unforgettable.

The must to do in Iceland


It was our first days ever in Iceland and everything was perfect. The minibus is totally adapted to the tour and super well-equiped: USB, heat, and the must: large windows to contemplate the landscape we go through during those two days. The lodge for the night was super, the breakfast as well, we could also cook and take a great shower!! It is located in a really nice place near a private waterfall, it's in the middle of nowhere and that was so relaxing... The room was comfy too. The landscapes were amazing, big up for the glacier walk: really impressive and securised thanks to Lucia (super guide!). Also, we appreciated our guide for those days: Robert, thank you so much for everything, you always took the time to explain things about Iceland and the places we went to, to answer everyone's questions and thanks for having breaks when needed also for shopping! We recommend that tour with this company for sure!

Make the most of the South, and more, in 2 days


Icelandic landscapes are breathtaking, almost unreal. If you add to this fact a great guide (David, in our case), who adjusts the tour to the group needs and really goes the extra mile to make the tour a beautiful experience; a comfortable hostel with very friendly staff; and good weather (we were lucky...), I can stay that this 2 day-tour was absolutely fantastic! I can only recommend it!

WOW!! I did the 2-Day tour with David. IT. WAS. AMAZING!! Without a doubt the best time I had in Iceland (and maybe ever). The tour stopped in breathtaking locations and provided the perfect balance of information, humor, relaxing bus/music time, and sightseeing. David was the man! He went above and beyond with his “why not” philosophy. Want to stop here? Why not? Want to take pictures out there? Why not? Want to take 12 hours today? Why not? It was awesome. He was funny and informative, but also shared a lot of culturally important history/context that gave you a beautiful glimpse of this stoic country. I’ll be going back again - and I would do this same tour again. It was that incredible. Best time of my life. You’ll stay at a hostel between the two days, and the people there were also amazing. Be prepared to drive for 60-90 minutes per stop sometimes. But well worth those waits. Cannot say enough good stuff about this trip. Seriously... JUST BOOK IT!!! 11/10 would recommend!

Amazing tour, lovely guide, beautiful country !!!


Such an amazing tour ! Really EVERYTHING was 100% perfect. If you have to choose a tour operator in Iceland, don't hesitate and go with Nice Travel :) The tour was excellent : in 2 day we saw sooo many beautiful things. And glacier hike was such an amazing experience ! The bus is really comfortable : we made quite a long road, but it was not difficult at all. The guide is really nice : he knows so much about Iceland ! And he made extra stops to some secret places. We were very lucky. The guesthouse we stayed in was also a lovely place. Also, I asked many questions to Nicetravel before departure and they always responded quickly, which was really reassuring. Last thing : one of my friend couldn't come in the last minute, and I have been repaid quickly. So THANK YOU NiceTravel ! That was awesome ! Love from France :)

Best part of the trip!


This two-day tour was the best part of my trip to Iceland. My tour guide was David and you could tell that he enjoyed his job. He made sure that we got to see and experience the most he could fit into two days. The glacier hike was amazing.

Amazing tour


We booked 3 tours with Nice Travel (Golden circle, Snafellsnes and this one) and they were all fantastic, but this particular one was exceptional due to the guides. Lucia and David were kind, funny and they shared a lot of stuff not only about the places we visited, but also about Icelandic history, culture, legends and daily life. They were able to unite the group, especially because they work really good as a team and while David was driving and taking care of the logistic part, Lucia was able to focus on the group and make sure we're always entertained.

My best trip in Iceland


Travelling with Lucia and David is my best trip in Iceland, they are excellent guides with very caring servie and their own way of humour. The whole trip went really smooth, even though the weather was not friendly enough, all of us had very good memory and surely loads of beautiful photos!!! Btw, the hostel was very nice as well, with clean environment and friendly staffs. The lamb soup was so great!

Thanks a lot to David’s professional attitude and multi-functioned ability,my mother and I had a great experience with the tour. Personally I could thank more for his taking care of my mother carefully in every aspect during the two-day tour, especially when we did hiking on the first day of trip. Thank you very much for everything.

The highlight of my trip to Iceland. Our guides Lucia and David were both fantastic, supremely knowledgeable, engaging and fun. Lucia gave us a great insight into the geology and stories of the areas. An action packed tour to be highly recommended.

The tour was amazing!! I would recommend this tour to anyone who is traveling to Iceland. It was a great way to see so many of the country's wonderful things without taking up a lot of days. Our tour guide Robert was AWESOME and made the trip even more memorable.

2 Day Tour to Jokulsarlon with Glacier Hike, Boat Tour & South Coast Waterfalls


I had to spend my few days in Iceland wisely and choosing the 2day trip with coast waterfalls , the boat trip in Jokulsarlon and the glacier hike was the best decision I made. I couldn't believe that the fascinating written schedule of the tour could be even more magical in reality. During the tour there were many times that I have said to myself that it couldn't get any better....BUT it was continuously getting better and better. Our guide, David was very informative, with very positive energy and good relevant stories to say. He was the best we could have for a guide in many ways. The accommodation was perfect. Everything was excellent! Good job Nice Travel7 and thank you!

Enjoyed a lot with this 2-day tour with Nicetravel. Our guide (Antonio) is very passionate and well-knowledgable about geography, nature, history...etc. Very caring and warm-hearted. The trip is well-organised -intense but full of fun! Enjoyed a lot of the glacier walk (Antonio and our glacier guide even extended a bit of time so that we can enjoy seeing more beautiful spots) the glacier lake boat tour was also very pleasant. During my 7 days in Iceland, among 3 agencies (4 different tours), this is the trip that I liked the most :) Highly recommend!

NICE travel is absolutely nice! the driver had done a gd job. he was vy nice to us and gentleman. for the tour, this company provoded enough time for each scenery spot so actually, we did not need to rush for the next checkpoint, which i appreciated very much. other than that, the tour was composed of small grp of people so that the driver(and also the tour guide) could cater to our needs. i wld recommend u to join this company as compared to large company.

The driver was sooooo nice! He is a happy old man and he even agreed to drive two girls to the airport, which of course he did not have to do. He was very generous to lend me his converter during the first night. That was very much appreciated. The tour guide Lucia, even though she is not an Icelander, knows a lot about Iceland and she was telling us a lot of funny things during the drives. Moreover, she was really caring and passionate. This tour is highly recommended!
