Tour description

Tour to the best-known glacial lagoon in Iceland

Jökulsárlón and black diamond beach are undoubtedly two of the most exciting places in Iceland.

As a day trip, it’s quite a long drive for a day but well worth it!


Reynisfjara, called in English, The Black Sand Beach, is one of the most famous beaches in Iceland. The magnificent nature, black sand, basalt columns, Reynisdrangar sea stacks, and intense waves of the Atlantic Ocean make this stop a great experience.


Vík is the southernmost village on the south coast of Iceland, located on the ring road.

Famous for its beautiful landscapes, black sand beaches, and strange rock formations, Vík is a great place to visit.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

The gem of the trip. Iceland’s most famous glacial lagoon is full of icebergs that have broken from the glacier tail of Breiðamerkurjökull on their way out to sea. Seals can often swim around in the lagoon or relax on a floating iceberg.

Breiðamerkurfjara Black Dimond Beach

Jökulsárlón is full of icebergs that melt slowly and travel down the river to the ocean. The strong current of the Atlantic Ocean throws the icebergs back to the land, where they are stranded on the black beach. This beach has earned the nickname Black Dimond Beach. It is a great experience to walk on the beach between the icebergs and enjoy. The ice sculpture is varied, and you can find endless photo opportunities.

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most visited waterfalls in Iceland. This 66m (213ft) high waterfall is not the most powerful waterfall in Iceland but extremely beautiful. What makes it unique is that you can walk behind it.

Remember to bring rain gear with you because it is not unlikely that spray from the waterfall will catch you.

It is a long drive to Jökulárslón, and in winter, there are no longer bright days, but if light conditions allow, the guide will make stops in other places.
