On this tour you will travel along South Iceland’s coast on the narrow strip of lush farmland that cuts between mountains, glaciers and the vast Atlantic Ocean. The route is lined with natural treasures including the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Dyrhólaey island and Reynisfjara shore to name a few.
Passing the southern edge of the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier roughly midway between Reykjavík and Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, the Skaftafell Park offers magnificent views of glaciers, rivers and endless plains of volcanic sand. Skaftafell Park is a part of Europe’s second largest National Park, the Vatnajökull National Park that stretches over an area of 14,000 square km, or roughly 10 times the size of London.
Standing guard between Skaftafell and Jökulsárlón, Iceland’s highest mountain, the formidable Öræfajökull volcano towering 2110 m above sea level is an impressive sight. And when you think nothing can beat the scenery you have just passed, the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon opens up before your eyes and takes your breath away.
Packed with icebergs in various shades of white and blue the lagoon‘s extraordinary scenery is popular among photographers and film makers from all over the world. Specialised amphibious vehicles take visitors out onto the lagoon sailing among the enormous chunks of ice. Various bird species can be seen feeding in and around the lagoon and seals are a fairly common sight, both at the mouth of the lagoon and at the sea side beach.
