Full description
Depart from Rekjavik on a two day journey that will acquaint you with the natural wonders of Iceland's South Coast.  Day one begins with a drive from Reykjavik to visit four beautiful waterfalls: Gljufrabui, Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, and the secret waterfall Kvernufoss. After making a stop for lunch, you will continue on to the well-known Sólheimajökull glacier for a unique 1.5 hour hike across the ice. From there, visit the world-famous Reynisfjara Beach and wander under basalt cliffs along the broad strip of jet black sand. Witness countless puffins, kittiwake, and fulmar hunting for fishes or taking off from nests set into the cliff face. At the end of the day, rest at the country guesthouse near Seljalandsfoss which will serve as your accommodation for the night. Day two will bring you up close and personal with a majestic glacier lagoon. In the morning, stop at the picturesque village of Vik before visiting the Foss a Sidu waterfall and Skaftafell National Park (where it is possible to buy lunch). Continue on to Jökulsárlón, a stunning glacier lagoon filled with huge chunks of ice which crack off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Admire the icebergs that wash on shore and glimmer brilliantly against the vivid black sand and spot seals darting around icebergs that float out to sea. After exploring the lagoon, you will be transported back to Reykjavik where you'll arrive around 9:30pm.

Highly recommended. This is the best small group tour I have ever encountered. Our guide is called Christina, which is really nice. He took us to several small attractions that were not in the itinerary. Originally the next day at 21:30 When we arrived in the city, we arrived at about eleven o’clock, and we were playing all the way. Each attraction gave us plenty of time to take pictures. In addition, we were lucky that we had five people in a car and a guide on the first day. On the second day, three people and guides, the car is also a great Mercedes-Benz station wagon, although the accommodation in the town is not private but very clean and private, it is a homehouse, and the front desk inside is also very welcoming. In short, the itinerary of two days and one night was perfect.

It's a great experience that only four people in the group. Everything becomes flexible and relaxed. Our guide Christiana (if the spell is correct) is very warm. We have a few bonus trips beyond the plan. Glassier hiking and lagoon are the most impressive.
