Day 1 – South Coast
An enormous waterfall, the Seljalandsfoss, which falls some 62 feet in height There may be a way to get behind this waterfall if the weather isn’t too cold. Melting glacial ice from Eyjafjallajökull’s summit has resulted in the waterfall.
Skógafoss waterfall is our next destination. From a distance or up close, this 200-foot vertical waterfall can be awe-inspiring. If you’re going to the front, make sure you’ve got your rain gear on. If you want to get up close and personal, you can rent some waterproof clothing from Hidden Iceland. You may see a rainbow in the mist of the waterfall on sunny days. Game of Thrones and Vikings have both used this waterfall as a location for filming, highlighting its majesty.
Next, we head to Reynisfjara, a spectacular black sand beach, to see the incredible rock formations. On calm days, the hexagonal basalt columns are a great place to take a picture. During the summer months, you may be able to see some adorable puffins perched on the cliffs above.
During the winter months, the waves can be particularly violent and jarring. As you walk along the black volcanic sand, one thing is for sure: you’ll lose track of time.
A great place to sample local cuisine is the Black Beach Restaurant if you haven’t brought any food with you. The Hidden Iceland guide’s favorite dish is the locally grown turnip soup!
A short photo stop in this seaside town or a chance to grab some snacks from the supermarket in town.
This almost unpronounceable canyon is a stunning place for a walk to viewpoints for stunning photos.
Skaftafell National Park
We pass through Skaftafell National Park where you will get views of Iceland’s highest mountains and its enormous glaciers.
Day 2: Glacier and Ice Cave Adventure
The famed iceberg-filled lagoon of Vatnajökull National Park is a sight that you will never forget.
We join our partners from Local Guide of Vatnajökull in their amazing Super Jeeps to reach the remote ice caves of the enormous Vatnajökull glacier. The blues and textures of these natural ice caves will leave you in awe. We will hike from the super jeep to reach the front of the glacier where we can explore the inside of this icy giant.
Walk along the black sand shores of Diamond Beach where enormous icebergs from the glacier lagoon wash up on the beach. The icebergs glisten on the black sand shores like diamonds. Definitely one unique beach visit.
We pass through the enormous moss-covered lava fields of Eldhraun on our way back to Reykjavik. We will stop at one of our favorite restaurants on our way back to Reykjavik for a late lunch / early dinner.
Here we end our 2-Day Ice Cave Iceland and Glacier Lagoon Tour.

We begin exploring the South Coast, home to some of Iceland's most popular natural attractions, and then visit the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, filled with colossal blocks of glacier-calved floating ice. You will have enough time to discover this bizarre and majestic landscape and photograph it. The Gerdi Country Hotel is our last stop of the day, where dinner is available at the restaurant (own cost).
We will move on the second day to Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier. A spectacular natural ice cave is concealed within the glacier, only begging for discovery. If appropriate, we'll equip ourselves with crampons, helmets and headlamps before our gallant guide brings us to the ice.
