After settling in, take the opportunity to explore the vibrant city centre at you own pace. The main downtown area offers a variety of shops, museums and galleries—all within an easy walk.

  2. Day 2 SOUTH COAST & MAJESTIC WATERFALLS

    Start the day by picking up your rental car before taking in some of the best known attractions in the south of Iceland. The first leg of your journey is along the south coast, with a stop at the fairy tale-like Seljalandsfoss waterfall—the only one of its kind in Iceland where you can walk behind the cascade on a footpath!* For those who are more adventurous we recommend stopping by the hidden waterfall in the canyon, known as Gljúfrabúi, located near Seljalandsfoss. Further along you can visit the magnificent 60 metre free-falling Skógafoss waterfalls in Skógar. From there, the journey takes you past the beautiful Eyjafjöll mountain range.

Drive to Skaftafell, part of Vatnajökull National Park and home of the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you can take a boat ride among the floating icebergs, which vary in colour, size and density. Marvel at the region’s unique beauty by exploring the many interesting hiking trails, including a short journey to the splendid Svartifoss waterfall. In this area, you can also embark on a glacier walk or try your hand at ice-climbing with an optional guided tour.* Travel back to your accommodation along the South Coast for the evening.

    Spend the night in the Vík area.

    Driving distance: 317 km/197 miles

    *NOTE: Venturing onto a glacier or engaging in ice climbing should only ever be attempted with the assistance of a licensed and experienced guide. It is extrememly dangerous to go out on your own. If a tour is of interest to you, please contact Nordic Visitor.

Visit the great Geysir area and explore the bubbling mud pots and spouting Strokkur geyser before arriving at the picture perfect two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall. After, you could choose to visit the old bishopry at Skálholt and the explosion crater Kerið, now partially filled with bright blue water. Complete the circle at Þingvellir National Park, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for being historically significant to the founding of Icelandic democracy and a place of immense natural beauty. Drive the Mosfellsdalur valley towards Reykjavik where you can relax after your scenic journey along the south coast.

HIGHLIGHTS A selection of the many incredible things you can see while in Iceland.

JÖKULSÁRLÓN GLACIER LAGOON

Film buffs will recognise Jökulsárlón from such blockbusters as Tomb Raider, Batman Begins, and 2 James Bond films: A View to a Kill and Die Another Day. It’s not surprising why famous directors would choose this amazing location as a backdrop!

This extremely picturesque glacial lagoon at the southern edge of the Vatnajökull glacier is regarded as one of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders. Huge chunks of ice regularly calve off the glacier and make their way to the sea via the glacier lagoon.

The view from the shore is unforgettable, but boat tours onto the lagoon to navigate the maze of icebergs are also available to get up close and personal with the azure ice. Boat tours are operated daily from May 15th to September 15th.

From land or on the water, you’re also likely to spot playful seals swimming in the chilly waters, much to the enjoyment of onlookers.

The water in Jökulsárlón is frigid and the ice bergs flip and roll on their own without warning, so please do not wade into the water or attempt to climb on the ice.

GULLFOSS

Gullfoss, or the ‘Golden Waterfall’, is a breathtaking two-tiered waterfall that drops 32 metres into a narrow canyon 70 metres deep and 2.5 kilometres long. From the car park there’s a footpath leading to a viewing platform where you can experience the waterfall in all its glory.

Standing above the falls is a stone memorial to Sigríður Tómasdóttir, who, a number of years ago, threatened to throw herself into the falls in protest against foreign investors who wanted to buy the waterfalls and use them as a pow
