Agenda
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, Kvernufoss 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).

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.

by Traian on Nice Travel Trip
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!

by Jade Jia on Nice Travel Trip
Excellent experience

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.

An exhilarating tour with fantastic guides

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.

by Monica Ealy on Nice Travel Trip

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!

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.

2-day trip to Jökulsárlón - Recommend tour and guide

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 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.

by Wenjuan Li on Nice Travel Trip

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!

by James Zhang on Nice Travel Trip
