What to Expect
Your full-day tour starts with morning pickup from your centrally located hotel in Reykjavik.

Led by your guide, head straight to the best viewing spots, including the Diamond Beach on the coast of the Norwegian Sea, and admire panoramic views over the lagoon’s floating icebergs and crystal-clear waters. Along the way, learn about the glaciers and rivers feeding the lagoon and gain insight into Iceland’s geography. Next, visit the Séljalandsfoss Waterfall—one of southern Iceland’s top natural attractions. Walk behind Séljalandsdoss’ powerful torrent and marvel at the power of the cascading waters.

The glacier lagoon is a wonderful trip and a beautiful place. it's far from the capital but being able to see it in one day and coming back is a huge advantage if you plan to go for a short time. Hjörtur Howser, our spectacular tour guide, kept us entertained during the very

As other reviews have remarked, this is one of the longest single day tours you can do from Reyjkavik - over 800km - but definitely worth it. We were picked up promptly at 7am from our designated bus stop and were meant to be transferred to a larger tour bus. However, with the
