THE GLACIER LAGOON DAY TOUR
Tour 12: The Glacier Lagoon private jeep day tour.
We will pick you up in the morning, then head east out of Reykjavik. The first stop will be the freefalling waterfall of Seljarlandsfoss below the volcano Eyjafjallajökull. You can walk behind the waterfall where you can see it from an interesting view and feel the spray and drizzle on your face. From there we have a short drive further east to see the waterfall Skogarfoss. We will then drive alongside Myrdalsjokull glacier and to Dyrholaey, which forms an arch into the ocean and from where you have an amazing view of Reynisdrangar, the surrounding countryside and black sand beach. We will have a picturesque drive, with the glacier Vatnajokull on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. By the roots of the glacier you'll see the Glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon, where magnificent icebergs float in the lagoon breaking from the glacier tongue. You can often see seals swimming in the lagoon or sunbathe on the icebergs. You can take a boat tour in the lagoon from mid-May to mid-September, which we highly recommend. You will have time to walk on the Diamond beach. You’ll find plenty of photo sites in the national park. This may be one of the longest day tour from Reykjavik but it is also one of the most highly recommended.
This itinerary is dependent on the road conditions and weather. Warm clothes and sturdy shoes are recommended.
