Day 1:
Begin your 2-day tour in the early morning with a convenient Reykjavik pickup by minibus. Head east out of Reykjavík on the famed ring road towards the south coast. First stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you have the chance to walk all the way around the waterfall and see it from every angle. Along the drive towards Skaftafell make further stops at Skógafoss waterfall and Vik, with its famous black-sand beach and basalt columns. From there head to your accommodation for the night. As well as a relaxed evening you also have the chance to hunt for the northern lights. During the winter months, out in the countryside with no light pollution, there's a good chance of spotting these colorful and fast-moving lights.

Please note: Accommodation will be arranged at Hótel Skaftafell from January 15th to March 15th 2017. From December 1st - January 15 accommodation will be at Hof 1 Hotel.
The hotels detailed above are as a reference only and are subject to change based on availability and other conditions beyond our control. An alternative hotel with similar standards, quality, and comfort may be offered as a substitute.

Day 2:
The first stop on your second day is the famed Jökulsarlon Glacier Lagoon with its floating ice bergs. From there head to highlight of the tour, the ice cave where your certified guide is already waiting for you with all necessary glacier equipment. A short walk brings you to the entrance of the ice cave. The cave's stunning formation offers great photo opportunities. On the way back, make a final stop at Skaftafell National Park. You will arrive back in Reykjavik between 9pm and 11pm.

  • This tour has the flexibility to make the most of the seasonal changes such as changes in weather and conditions. During the summer Iceland is characterized by energizing bright nights and midnight sun. Between August and May, if the forecast is suitable, you might even be able to spot the magical show put on by the Northern Lights. It is important to note that a guided Northern Lights hunt is however not included in the tour. Other wonderful and interesting possibilities can also come up during your south coast tour with us as Iceland is full of surprises. 
  • We use a couple of different ice caves for our 2 day South Coast tour. Ice caves are ever-changing and unpredictable natural phenomena. We usually visit the Crystal Cave at Breiðmerkurjökull during this tour but when the Crystal Cave is inaccessible we will most likely visit Katla Ice Cave. Which ice cave is chosen will however always depend upon the conditions and safety considerations on the day, sometimes a different ice cave will be visited.
