Glacier Lagoon Tour

Glacier Lagoon Tour


The Glacier lagoon is one of the longer day tours but it is most certainly worth the drive. Located on the south east part of the island the glacier lagoon is a stunning force of nature which is fed from the largest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull. As the ice breaks away from the melting glacier it drifts through the lagoon and towards the ocean which creates a very unique landscape that is constantly moving and shifting. We will also have some time during the drive to visit additional famous stops on the south coast including the mysterious Seljalandsfoss waterfall that you can walk behind and the small fishing village of Vik.

Itinerary

 

When all our guests are aboard we will begin our drive along the southern coast of Iceland.

You will pass by views of the black sand beaches, glaciers and lava fields that make up the dramatic landscape of the area.

Our first destination is the Glacier lagoon itself and once we arrive you will have a variety of activities to choose from.
You may want to take a short boat ride across the lagoon (summer season only, tickets available for purchase on the bus). You could take a walk down to the diamond beach and witness the contrast between the glistening Ice and the black sands or for those who want to learn a little more about the area there is also a fantastic visitors centre that will give you all the essentials.

When our time at the lagoon comes to an end we will head back along the south coast again, but our exploration is far from over and we still have plenty to show you. There is also the village of Vik to see, a small fishing village with only 300 inhabitants. We will also take time to stop and see the amazing waterfall of Seljalandsfoss.
