ABOUT THE TOUR
The Ice cave and Northern Lights Experience on the stunning South Coast.
You can expect the tour to take 14-16 hours
Highlights: Glacier Lagoon & Diamond Ice-beach, a visit to a natural Ice cave, Seljalandsfoss and Northern light’s search.
The tour starts with an early pick up and you are in for a very long but breathtaking day. You will be sitting in a comfortable luxury mini-bus or jeep, enjoying all the best highlights that the south coast has to offer in one package. We drive towards Jökulsárlón, glacier lagoon. Here you will see icebergs floating in the lagoon and might even see a seal from time to time. On the other side of Highway 1 you‘ll walk down to the Diamond beach where icebergs sit on the black sand beach of Breiðamerkursandur, having washed upon shore, glowing like crystals. Truly a unique experience.
Once we’ve enjoyed viewing the icebergs at the lagoon and beach we drive to the ice cave where we provide you with safety gear and lights before you enter the cave. After the ice cave we drive to our final scheduled stop, Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you have an option of walking behind the cascade. During the winter months, the waterfall is lit up and provides great photo opportunities, especially if the Northern lights appear. As the Northern lights can be very elusive, their sighting cannot be guaranteed but if conditions offer a glimpse of hope the drive back to the city is a constant Northern lights hunt.
You can expect the tour to take 14-16 hours so bringing snack for the ride is a good idea, the driver will also be making short stops during the tour at service stations.
Make sure you’re dressed well, we recommend hiking boots and multi layers of clothing as the temperature can be very low in the ice cave and around the lagoon.
You can expect to be back in Reykjavik city shortly after midnight.
