Full description
You adventure begins with you being picked up in Reykjavík in a small and comfortable minibus before heading straight to the south. Your first stop will be the almighty Seljalandsfoss waterfall, bring a raincoat and you’ll be able to make the short hike behind the falls. Following this, you will progress onward to the Skógafoss waterfall. Tucked in a little gorge, the river Skógá tumbles down a 60-meter cliff before continuing down the landscape towards the Atlantic Ocean. You will then reach a blue ice cave, where you will have the opportunity to hike through this natural phenomenon Following the ice cave, you will hike an outlet glacier spawning from the one of the largest glaciers in the country. After meeting your highly trained glacier guides you will hike on the ice for 1.5 hours, a truly spectacular experience and opportunity to learn more about this breathtaking and increasingly rare natural phenomena. In the evening you will arrive at your hotel in the southeast, where you will have dinner before meeting your guide for further information about the Northern Lights. If the sky is clear and the forecast is good your guide will find a good spot to hunt the famous Aurora Borealis. You will then visit a black sand beach, home to many types of Iceland birds and other wildlife, before retiring back to your accommodation for the night. Day 2 will begin with a venture to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a 200m deep glacial lagoon fed by Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier. You will be able to witness icebergs floating from this glacier lagoon out into the Atlantic Ocean where they are quickly thrown back to shore by the tide and winds. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice rocks in all shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight. The ice itself comes in all shades of white and blue forming beautiful contrasts. Your day will conclude with your return to Reykjavík.

This trip is a must-do. We packed in so many activities in a very short time, and learned so much about Iceland along the way! Our guide Shen Ji was absolutely phenomenal - he is multilingual so he took the time to guide us in English and then the rest of our tourmates in Chinese. He took us to so many cool spots in addition to the listed ones - I really cannot recommend this tour enough. The south coast is breathtaking and between the glacier lagoon, ice caves, waterfalls and canyons, we got our money’s worth. Sadly there wasn’t enough northern light activity on our particular trip but honestly we didn’t feel let down at all, just means we have to come back and do it again!!!

It was a great tour from start to finish. Even if sightseeing, dining, and shopping exceeded the scheduled time, he drove me without being rushed. Not limited to tourist attractions, the guides told us their own episodes in their hometowns. There were many arrangements such as dropping off at several scenic points on the way, looking for a herd of reindeer, and drawing water from the river. It was a great tour to fully enjoy Iceland. I am sincerely grateful to the gentle guide who went out with the selfishness of the four girls.

The guide told us all Aurora related information and the possibility. The night sky at the final position is very clear, but the location with no wind shield at all, very windy and cold. Luckily, we saw the Aurora about 11pm and it last until we finish the tour 1130
