2 Day tour
South and South-East coast
For those who want to dive into the atmosphere of travel and adventure, go a little further and see more, I have made this 2 day tour. During the tour, we spend a night in cozy houses, cottages right in the middle of the Icelandic beauties. We eat during the day in cafes and restaurants along the way, in the morning and in the evening we cook food ourselves.
Early morning we meet at your hotel and head to south coast of Iceland. This route, very popular among tourists in Iceland, but it is definitely worth your attention.
The tour has collected : the most beautiful and majestic waterfalls, a glacier that you can touch, cliffs with millions of Pafins and amazing views along the ocean, we will also stop at the famous and dangerous Black Beach, which has been recognized as the most beautiful in the world.
We start from your hotel in Reykjavik and drive to south of the island.
The first stop will be the Seljalandsfoss waterfall - the height of the fall is 60 meters, and its unique. You can literally go behind it. And watch the rushing stream fall on the other side of the waterfall.
Next stop is photographers favorite - Skógafoss waterfall. Impressed not only with its power, but also with the fact that you can come close to it, as far as your courage and quality of your clothes, and take an incredible pics. There are some restaurants and if you want you can have a lanch.
Then we will drive to the glacier and walk to it as close as possible, feeling the full power of this cold monster.
Next, we are heading to beaches with black volcanic sand and bizarre rocks near Dyrhólaey - the most south point of the island. Here we can find Puffins and take pictures of these cute birds.
Then we move to the famous Black Beach. Just look at the photo. Have you seen something similar elsewhere on the planet?
If we have enough time I will take you to a little-known canyon with another waterfall.
Then walk to the basalt columns and Troll's Fingers.
Troll's fingers named because of their resemblance to thin fingers sticking out of the water. There is one legend... and I will tell you on the way.
Yes, Icelanders are very love legends and really believe in elves and trolls. Here's the truth..
Here we can eat at a restaurant nearby. After a short rest, we move further to the east, with another amazing change of landscape from ash-sand to endless moss covers.
The last stop of the day will be the Fjaðrargljufur canyon, where we can walk and enjoy incredible views of one of the most beautiful canyons in Iceland.
In the evening we check in to our cozy house and cook dinner: a barbecue of steaks, whiskey or just hot tea, sharing your experience and discuss the upcoming day.
After a good sleep, we have a breakfast and move on. Today we will dive into the world of glaciers and icebergs. We'll drive off the concreat roads and go where ordinary cars don't go. On this day, we will see the most massive glaciers in Iceland, sliding down from the mountains, changing the landscape, and sometimes destroying bridges and roads, causing a lot of troubles for the locals.
We are going to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Breathtaking landscapes, chilling beauty of nature and endless freedom - this is what deserves to become one of the epic memories about Iceland.
This is the today's largest lagoon in Iceland, and definitely one of the most scenic.
Here we can watch funny seals are splashing in the water or basking on icebergs,
We will see huge ice break off, they turn over and float into the ocean
These icebergs eventually drift out to sea where they are polished by the waves before floating back to the black sands of Breiðamerkursandur. The name ‘Diamond Beach’ thus comes from the white ice on the black sand appearing like gemstones or diamonds, as they often glisten in the sun. Let's take a walk and take pictures.
We will drive to the Skaftafell park and climb the hill to see the most bizarre of the waterfalls - Svartifoss.
This is our final location for today and we start our journey back to Reykjavik.
The guide may change the route if it become necessary.
