We will pick you from your residence and take you out to the city to explore unique features while moving in the direction of the South Coast of Iceland. The south coast of Iceland is popular for having Eyjafjallajökull volcano which takes over the world in the news at the time when it erupted in 2010.
We start the adventure at the time when we pick you from the Reykjavík in a comfy and relaxing minibus before moving directly to the south. Our arrival is declared by the prevailing dramatic performance of Seljalandsfoss. You are advised to bring a raincoat with you if you want to have a hike behind the waterfalls.
Moving further towards the east along with the cost is Skógafoss waterfall. This waterfall is amazingly beautiful and best for photography. Securing in between the little narrow valley, the Skógá river falls down the 60 meters high ridge before going downwards towards the landscape and falls in Atlantic ocean. You will see the staircase along the gorge where you can move up for an adorable view of the waterfall.
Glacier Hike in Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park
We will take you to hike on a glacier originating from one of the biggest glaciers in Iceland know as Vatnajökull. Before moving to hike we fulfill all of the requirements from our trained glacier guides and wear all the safety equipment including crampons, harnesses, ice ax, and helmets. Then we hike there for one and half hour. It is a great experience of glacier hiking Iceland to learn more about the rare natural process and incredible views.
Blue Ice Cave
The trip moves on to explore the blue ice cave. It will require only a few minutes to hike up the top of the cave. We advise you to wear hiking waterproof boots that shield your ankles and have tough sole to assist you in hiking. The nature of Iceland is overwhelmed by glaciers and it requires a highly certified guide and safety kit to explore these glaciers. The trained guide will inform you about safety measures while hiking blue ice cave and will allow you to know the true value of this marvels of nature. The blue ice cave is blue.
Northern Lights hunt

In the case of clear sky and good weather forecast, your guide will look for a perfect place to hunt the amazing Northern Lights.
Jökulsárlón, the Glacier Lagoon
Moving forward on day 2, we will move to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon which is a glacial lagoon with a depth of 200 meters. It is fed by the outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier i.e. Breiðamerkurjökull. Huge icebergs used to originate from Breiðamerkurjökull throughout the year, so the lagoon usually stays full of ice floating towards the south. You can also book the boat ride through the icebergs in summer days using troll expeditions to witness the ice from close. If you don’t like boating, you can simply walk along the glacier lagoon and enjoy the wonderful view and silence of nature in Iceland.
You will see the icebergs floating on the Atlantic Ocean from Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon on the other side of the road where they are rapidly moving back towards the shore by the winds and tide forces. This Diamond black sand beach is filled with little ice rocks in different size and shapes and sparks just like a diamond when the daylight falls on them.
Reynisfjara, the Black Sand Beach
Moving even further towards the east, we go to see the sandy black beach of Reynisfjara where you will see huge waves at the Atlantic coastline striking the exclusive basalt geometric columns in the cliff above the sand. You will also be able to see from a distance, the rock pillars submerged in water and cliffs of Dýrhólaey. The bird lover will love this area as this area is full of puffins and lots of other unique bird species in summer months i.e. from June to August.
