We will pick your group up at your hotel or your nearest bus stop, one’s everybody is settled we will drive on the ring road to our first sightseeing stop, that will be the magnificent waterfall Skógarfoss, there we will stop for photos and a small view over the area.
Then we will head to the little village of vík, where we will have some lunch at a local restaurant that has a good view of the oceanfront.
From Vík we will have a long drive towards the next stop, Fjarðarárgljúfur but on the way there we will drive through one of the biggest lava fields in Iceland Eldhraun, the eruption Laki, that formed it had massive consequences for the people of Iceland wich you will also learn about.
After we have explored Fjarðarárgljúfur we will head to Kirkjubæjarklaustur where we will check in to our hotel for the night.
After a good breakfast at the hotel, we are going to head further south, we are going to start by driving to Jökulsárlón the Glacier Lagoon the largest of its kind in the world, and it is also the deepest lake in Iceland around 250m deep.
After spending a good amount of time there we are going to drive across the road over to Fellsfjara or the Dimond Beach, where the icebergs that brake away from the glacier and that float on the lagoon end up as the river from the lagoon meets the sea. There, the beautiful contrast between the clear ice and the black sand makes this place magical.
Now it is time for lunch and that we will get again across the road, at Fjallsárlón lagoon there we will find a nice little restaurant, if you want to see Fjallsárlón up close you can do a little walk behind the restaurant.
From here we are going to head back to Kirkjubæjarklaustur where we will spend another night.
This is our last day, and so after breakfast, we are heading back the same way we came, but today we need to visit all the places that we skipped on our first day.
Therefore our first stop will be a short photo stop in the Eldhraun Lava Field, the lava field that you have now learned so much about.
Then a short stop in the village Vík, then we just need to drive around the mountain to Reynisfjara beach, but what makes this black sand beach so popular are the beautiful rock formations and are a must-see.
From the beach, our last adventure awaits us at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind the waterfall and Experience its full power.
After a nice stop here, we are driving back to Reykjavík where we will drive you to your accommodation.
