2-Day South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Tour from Reykjavík

Our two-day South Coast Tour is perfect to escape the city and explore the entire South Coast of Iceland.
We bring you all the way to the southeast of the country where a landscape with some of the biggest glaciers and mountains is waiting for you.

The glacier hike takes place on an outlet glacier called Solheimajökull, coming down from the fourth biggest glacier in the country. The glacier is located between two of the biggest volcanoes called Eyjafjallajökull and Katla.

Admire spectacular views while we are driving through the Vatnajökull national park. Vatnajökull is Iceland's biggest glacier and it covers around 8% of the country.

The "land of fire and ice" is not only offering breathtaking scenery, but we also find history and sagas behind every corner. Viking fairytales, elves, and troll stories, your guide will share all these often supernatural stories with you.

Book hassle-free with us! We guarantee all our departures without minimum participation.
