Itinerary:

On this tour, we will take you to Iceland's south coast. The route follows a narrow strip of lush green farmland: the colors contrasting beautifully with the the silver sky and cool colours of the mountains, glaciers and vast Atlantic Ocean.

The road is lined with waterfalls, including the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Enjoy the magical atmosphere created by the mists and revel in the excitement as you watch the water thunder down the falls from its crest. These waterfalls are incredibly special because you can get so close to them that you feel the spray on your face. Walk to the very base of Skogafoss, to witness the sheer power of the crashing water.

We will pass along the southern edge of the mighty Vatnajokull ice cap, the largest in Europe,  and then through Skaftafell National Park.  The park offers epic vistas of mountains, rivers and endless plains of sand.  Suddenly, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon appears before your eyes in great swathes of glittering blue and white. Your gaze follows the gradients of pale blue, turquoise, teal and deepest navy as you peer down into the crystal clear waters. You might recognise this otherworldly and achingly beautiful location from films such as Die Another Day and Tomb Raider

From the Glacier Lagoon you will head to the Gerdi Guesthouse, a small family-owned hotel near the ocean. There you can visit the nearby Þórbergssetur, a museum in memory of author Þórbergur Þórðarson, have a nice dinner, search for the Northern Lights or just relax and enjoy the quiet Icelandic countryside. 

The next morning, after a hearty breakfast, we travel to Svínafellsjökull glacier, where you'll go on a two hour walk through the heart of a spectacular landscape with expansive views over rough-hewn mountains and iceblue glacier fields. It's a fantastic opportunity for stunning photographs. 

Driving back towards Reykjavik, we will stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, that you probably caught a glimpse of the previous day. If time and conditions allow, try to take the path behind Seljalandsfoss and marvel at the magnificent wall of water before you as you gaze out across the expanse of green meadowland and beyond to the sea.

We return to Reykjavik in the evening, after experiencing some of the most fantastic sites that Iceland's nature has to offer.
