2-Day Summer Tour | South Coast and Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

The South coast of Iceland is filled with magnificent places that are must-see when you visit this beautiful country. The landscape on the South Coast is very divergent so there is no surprise that it is the most visited region of Iceland. Join this tour along Iceland’s south coast to discover its stunning glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, black beaches, strong rivers and waterfalls

For two days you will be travelling across truly astonishing rural countryside. Setting off from Reykjavík you will head East along the Icelandic South Coast - mainly famous for its majestic waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the spectacular Black Beach of Reynisfjara and the beautiful Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. In addition to these popular sights the area has so much more to offer, the South is packed with multiple eye-catching destinations and interesting sagas related to them and on this tour you will have the opportunity to explore and enjoy many of them. 

Agenda

Day 1 – South coast of Iceland | Waterfalls, Glaciers and Famous Black Beach of Reynisfjara

After driving from Reykjavik through lovely villages in the South, Seljalandsfoss waterfall is the first sight of the day greeting you from the distance. This is by many considered the most picturesque waterfall in Iceland and must be visited while in Iceland! Seljalandsfoss originates from Seljalandsá which runs from Eyjafjallajökull glacier and finally falls from a tall cliff. Its most distinguishing feature is a pathway that you are so lucky to be able to walk behind. But please be careful, as it can be a slippery slope. Be prepared to get a little wet as well, but the view is totally worth it. 

Just within a short walk there is another waterfall waiting to be explored by you. Gljubrabui is often called the „Hidden Waterfall“ and there is a reason for it – it is mostly obscured by the tall cliffs, so many travellers tend to skip it. On this tour you can explore this hidden gem! Next on the agenda are another two waterfalls, each offering an amazing different visual experience. Irafoss is another less known waterfall but offers a striking contrast to the others being located off the main road in a peaceful secluded area. Last, but definently not least, is Skogafoss. This fascinating and eyecatching creation of nature continously powers off the cliffs pummeling down over 60 meters into the Skoga river beneath.

As we continue we will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano (you might recognize it after newscasters tried miserably to pronounce it in 2010 when the volcano erupted) and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap. At Solheimajokull (an outlet of Mýrdalsjökull ) you can particiapate in a very unique activity – a Glacier Hike. Admiring a glacier from a distance is one thing but exploring them by foot, using provided safety gear, is a completely different world a part. The sensation of placing on foot in front of the other whilst consciously realizing the magnitude and power of what lies beneath is an unforgettable feeling.

Last stop on day one is at the Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings. Accordingly to the National Geographic the black beach Reynisfjara is one of top 10 non tropical beaches in the world that are a must to be seen. Even though the ocean seem appealing be careful because the waves can be hazardous.

This tour does include the overnight stay at Icelandic Country site where you can relax and enjoy the peace of this tranquile part of the island. You can choose the standard of the accommodation you wish to have during booking process. 

Optional Activity:

  • Glacier Hike (3 hours) - minimum age 8 – put the crampons on and enjoy the magnificent, raw views around you. Under care of an experienced, skilled and qualified glacier guide you will discover mind-blowing places, astonishing crevasses and unique ice formations. It is necessary to wear solid hiking shoes and highly recommend wearing warm, windproof jackets. That is basically all you need to bring – we provide the crampons and all necessary safety equipment to walk safely on the glacier. This activity takes approximately 3 hours.

Day 2 – The amazing Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon and Diamond Beach

First on the itinerary is a visit to the village of Vík – a charming, remote village located in a beautiful valley along the dramatic coastline and with great views over the Reynisdrangar cliffs. On the top of small hill you will find a little church looking like something straight from a fairy-tale book. Once you pass Vík you will enter totally new world – a barren wasteland decorated by moss, rocky peeks and lava fields. One area especially worth mentioning is the Eldhraun (or Fire Lava) Lava Field. What makes this place unique is definitely its size – Eldhraun was created during the biggest lava flow know in the history of mankind. An eruption of the Laki Volcano lasted for nearly two years (1783 and 1784). That was the reason why on the British Isles, the sky was completely covered with volcanic ash for the whole summer (often referred to as the „Sand-Summer“) and some even believe that hunger caused by this event tiggered the French Revolution.   

Then it is onto one of the most recognizable canyon in Iceland – Fjaðrárgljúfur, that got international attention after being featured in the music video of one of the Canadian singers. 2-kilometers long, 100 meters deep ancient canyon with quite a unique serpent-like shape is on the bucket list of many visitors and locals alike. Please note, that due to fragile vegetation it might happen that canyon will not be accessible during your tour. If that happens we will arrange another amazing sightseeing spot in this area, that is full of charming creeks and falls. 

Today, you will also take a closer look at majestic glaciers and lagoons located in the Vatnajokull National Park – the biggest one in Iceland covering almost 1/3 of country´s territory. The jewel inside the National Park is the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. This is the place where melting ice from the Vatnajokull, Europe´s biggest glacier, form the lake filled with ice chunks drifting towards the Atlantic Ocean. Some of them are being washed back ashore and lay there dazzling in contrast to the black sand, aptly named the Diamond Beach – nearly as famous as the lagoon itself.

Jokulsarlon is also home a seal colony – you can spot these friendly mammals resting on drifting icebergs, black sand beach or swimming around in ice-cold waters. During the summer months (May-October), when the water surface is not completely covered with solid ice, you can take a boat tour on the lagoon and sail between the blue icebergs. 

Optional activity:

  • Amphibian Boat Tour at Jökulsárlón (available from May to September) - take a 30-40-minute-long amphibian boat tour among the floating ice bergs. Remember to keep your head up for seals swimming in the ice-cold waters or resting on the shore.

Highly recommend this tour

   

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed this tour! I would highly recommend for anyone who plans on visiting the South Coast to do this 2-day tour. It was very well-paced and we had enough time to enjoy the beautiful sites we visited. The guest house where we stayed overnight was lovely - very clean and had everything we need! Also, our tour guide Mika was fantastic! He was very friendly, informative and organized, which made our overall experience wonderful and memorable! Thank you guys :)

Great short tour choice

   

So for those who have tight schedule and wanna explore a little bit more than the Golden Circle, this one would be a perfect choice! Have opportunity to do a fabulous glacier hiking and see glacier lagoon. A little bit long drive, but great experience because the scene along is fantastic. Christina is a great great guide with a lot of energy and fun! Took us to explore a lot!

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.

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.

08 September, 2019 by Vicki

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.

07 September, 2019 by Ru

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!

Super nice

   

We had a fantastic time!!!!! David was a super guide. He was showing us the most awesome places, taking care of our safety , giving us super good information and even chasing the northern lights with me in the cold night. I highly recommend this tour????

it is a very fantastic two-days tour. The guide drives safely and instoduces the attractions well. We have a very nice day with all the group. The hotel is so good as well, super clean, the staff is very nice and the breakfast is delicious. All in all, it really worth it. highly recommend.

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!

I joined the 2 day tour around the South Coast with Marek as our guide. He is a wonderful host and made the tour lots of fun and also very informative! The glacier hike was my personal highlight and Marek made sure, everyone was safe and could enjoy the hike. The rest of the tour was amazing as well. You wouldn't want to miss this one!

NICE Tour

   

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.

The best tour in Iceland

   

I have to thanks to our best guide Michaël :)!! This is my 3rd time Icelandic trip, and this tour is the best one in my opinion;)!! I took my parents to visit Iceland with me this time, they were really enjoyed it too!! Michaël tried his best to let us feel more about Iceland. Not only the waterfalls, glaciers, glaciers’ lake, black sand beach, canyon, but also took us to see puffins!! He helped us a lot during the tour, because we got some trouble. But he has tried his best to solved it and everything was perfect then :). Thank you so much!! The hotel we stayed is really nice too! Two hosts are very hospitality, the breakfast is tasty, the room is clean and cute, and the bed is very soft. They also helped us a lot!! Thank you so much:)!!! By the way, we also enjoyed the Icelandic music during the road trips! I will definitely recommend you to choose this tour to visit the amazing southern Iceland!!!

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.

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.

Good experience

   

Good experience and excellent Guide especially YAKA who had way with words in make all history and geography interesting during his commentary. Other guide ( dont remember the name) was patient and understanding but need to work on his skill as a guide and to make things sound interesting; he was only with us on 2nd day unlike 1st day when YAKA was also there. Stay was ok, with really tiny room and too over prices limited meal which we also ended up not eating because it was tasteless. Should have other options to stay and choice should be given at the time of booking

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!

AMAZING & INCREDIBLE

   

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 :)

Would do it again!

   

This is definitely the highlight of my week long solo trip to Iceland! I had high expectations but it turned out to go far beyond what I could have imagined. Our tour guide David is the most funny, easy-going, passionate and energetic person I've met in Iceland. He always has our best interests in his mind - he's know-it-all expert when it comes to travelling; he made extra stops along the way just for us to enjoy Iceland in authentic way, he knows when to do what depending on lighting and weather conditions. If you are coming to Iceland, it's a no brainer to go on this 2-day adventure!

A great experience!

   

I booked the 2-day tour for myself and two other friends. Arni was our guide, and he made the experience a ton of fun. The landscape was breathtaking, and the glacier hike was great. I wish we could have spent a bit more time on the glacier. Arni was great, he was knowledgeable and really funny. He even took us to see a cave he called the Yoda cave, that he hadn't been to in a long time. Would definitely recommend the tour. I didn't realize there was a 1-day option, which might have been a good option as well.

Wonderful experience!

   

We are a group of 4 people. Our tour guide was Arni. He was able to adjust the itinerary so that we could do our glacier hike in perfect weather. He is knowledgeable. Knows a lot about the nature. Because of the small group size of the tour (6 only in total), we needed not rush and could spend plenty of time at every attraction.

We had an incredible two day tour with our guide named Valdí! We traveled as a group of 3 girls in college and were incredibly impressed with the tour itinerary, accommodations, and specifically our guide. The first day, we traveled with one other couple, and the second day we were lucky enough to have our own private tour. Because of our small group size, Valdí not only gave us extensive information and history about each place we visited on the itinerary, but he also took us to many lesser known places not listed on the agenda that he thought would enrich our experience on the South Coast. He was extremely knowledgeable and made our two-day tour absolutely unforgettable and better than we could have ever expected! Would highly recommend.

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.

Nice Trip

   

Nice trip, but the mini-bus is quite small for full house. The most delightful part is the supper in the Nice Hostel, particularly the cheese cake is professional level. We are too old to fit the glacier walk and would be helpful if the duration for the glacier walk is shorter. The guides are helpful and friendly.

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.

導遊非常棒,親切且幽默。我們到的時間是淡季(4月初),團非常的小導遊很仔細照顧到所有的人。冰川健行合作的公司也很專業友好,領隊非常幽默且專業。住宿地點在沒有光害的地方,是追極光的好地點。住宿房間品質良好,不過晚餐選項只有羊肉湯和冷凍pizza,pizza的價錢比較高,如果不是自駕依然建議出發前採買一些不需要冷藏的食材,到住宿點有廚房能自己下廚或加熱食物。

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!

Michael, my guider, made my 6-7/5 trip@Southern Iceland an unforgettable one

   

Michael, driver@6-7/5, 2~day trip of Southern Iceland is a nice, friendly, helpful & caring guider who made my 1st visit in Iceland an awesome & incredible experience encouraging my next visit. He is not just professional in his safe driving service along the trip, but also in introducing either the historic or scenic places of Southern Iceland in an interesting & humorous way, which is entertaining & enjoying. His sincere smiles give me an impact & I appreciate his heartfelt gratitude & caring service along the trip. I do highly recommend Nicetravel & Michael himself to my friends & family when they are planning to visit Iceland.

Great Trip!

   

Really fantastic trip with our tour guide David! We saw a lot of waterfalls (including secret waterfallsssssss). The glacier hike was tired but really really great and wonderful. Thank you David for taking care of us and pay really special attention to me since I am a really bad hiker :P (walking like a penguin ...) It is important to have a well-trained and experienced tour guide and I believe we found the best one in this trip! I will definitely choose Nice Travel again in my next Iceland Trip :)

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!

Fantastic Tour!

   

Just finished an 8 day trip to Iceland and this 2 day tour was the highlight. The sites were incredibly breathtaking, but on top of that our tour guide Antonio and driver David did a fantastic job of making sure that we had the best time possible through their care and attention to our needs throughout the trip. Antonio clearly has a passion for leading these tours as he wove together lessons in geology and Icelandic history throughout the entire trip, and he managed to do it in a way that was informative, interesting, and entertaining at the same time. The restaurant we were taken to for lunch on the first day and dinner on the second day served the best meals that we had our entire time in Iceland. I would whole heartily recommend this tour and the team of Antonio and David for your next visit to this area. You will not be disappointed.

nice travel is reli nice!

   

i hv joined the 2days tour on 12-13/5/2017 for the south iceland including the glacier lagoon. 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!
