From beaches to glaciers to caves, the south of Iceland holds endless kinds of natural beauties. Fill two days with outdoor activity as you visit and experience these gorgeous sites 

Day 1: Glacier walk - Skaftafell

After your guide picks you up at your accommodation in Reykjavik, you head out of the capital towards the picturesque south coast. The further east you get the more stunning the scenery becomes. Numerous waterfalls tumble down from steep cliffs and giant glaciers and vast black deserts form a sharp contrast. On the way, you stop and gear up for an exciting glacier walk on Solheimajokull or Svinafellsjokull glacier. 

After trekking along the solid ice, you drive to the 4-star hotel in time for dinner (not included). In the evening we will be on the lookout for the magical lights of the winter sky, the Aurora Borealis, hoping they will make an appearance.

Day 2: Icebergs - Ice Caves

After breakfast, the group continues further east to the enchanting Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon filled with huge floating icebergs that have broken off from the glacier. Here we also get to see the Diamond Beach where icebergs appear as diamonds on the black lava sand beach. 

After having admired this spectacle of ice and water, you adventure through the tunnels of solid blue ice caves of Europe’s largest glacier.

In the afternoon, your guide brings you back to Reykjavik. On the way, we take time to walk along the black beach of Reynisfjara, watching and listening to the huge and powerful waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Then, we stop to take a close look at the beautiful waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss before returning to Reykjavik in the late afternoon/early evening.
