Vom Anfang bis zum Schluss gut organisierte und gut durchgeführte Tour! Anna hat uns perfekt durchgeführt und betreut- ja sie hat uns sogar ein Lied in echter „Wikingersprache“ vorgesungen Die Locations waren wunderschön, einfach nichts zu meckern und nur zu empfehlen! Ich habe vor dieser Tagestour einen Reiturlaub auf Islandpferden gemacht, also hat mir das Sitzen im Bus sehr gut gepasst nach all den Tölt- Strapazen

Very good experience. Blue ice cave is magnificent place. Although there are also other beautiful (and longer) caves to visit.Gily is a very experienced guide and we really enjoyed our time with him.
Depart Reykjavik and get stunning views of some of the most magnificent scenery in Iceland on the bus ride to Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. Marvel at the mighty Hvannadalshnjúkur mountain and black sand desert that sprawls between Skaftafell National Park and the lagoon. Stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascades to reach the other side. Continue to the majestic Skógafoss waterfall and marvel at the impressive 60-meter drop. Drive onwards to Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon and go for a stroll along the shores of the lake on arrival to admire the scenery. Experience the incredible tranquility of the area as 1,000 to 1,500-year-old ice breaks away from the Vatnajökull glacier and floats silently across the water. Recognize locations from some of the many movies that have been filmed in the area, such as Batman Begins and Tomb Raider.
Absolutely amazing. So much better than tours with Reykjavík excursions. Tour guide Ursula was fantastic. The glacier lagoon is just the most incredible thing over ever seen.
Head along the beautiful south shore of Iceland to the extraordinary glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón, on this full-day tour. Pass some charming villages as well as Skaftafell National Park and visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall and Skógarfoss waterfall. Just before you reach the lagoon, you'll pass Iceland’s biggest volcano, Öræfajökull glacier which has the highest peak of the island, Hvannadalshnjúkur. (2110 m). After arriving at the lagoon, enjoy some time to view this stunning area. Take a walk along the shore and admire the icebergs.

Jökulsárlón started to form in the early nineteen twenties and is getting bigger every year. You will see many amazing blocks of ice that have broken off Europe’s biggest glacier, Vatnajökull, as they sail slowly towards the ocean which is only a ki...
It's a very long day, but worth it ro see the spectacular Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. The boast ride on the lagoon is not included, but I would highly recommend adding it to this trip.
Your day will begin as you are picked up from Reykjavik, at which point you will be whisked away down the picturesque south coast. You will pass gorgeous meadows, rugged coastlines, and traditional farmsteads on the way. You will begin with a visit to the 60-meter-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, considered a staple stop for sightseeing trips down the coast. You will then make a refreshment stop at the southernmost village of Iceland, VikiMyrdal. Continuing along the south towards the east, you’ll be amazed as the scenery transforms from rich farmlands and dramatic mountains to darkened outwash plains, black deserts and staggering areas of natural elevation. If the conditions allow, you can also pay a visit to the stunning river canyon of Fjadrargljufur. Finally, you will reach the highlight of the day, Jokulsarlon, where you will be immediately taken within its ethereal ambience, glitter...
Guide was excellent. Learned so much history and personal experiences because he had lived there for many years.
This small group adventure starts from Reykjavik where your guide will pick you up from one of the authorized pickup points in the Reykjavik downtown area. First stop will be the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is one of the few waterfalls in Iceland that you can walk behind. Next up is the powerful Skogafoss waterfall, located in the peaceful area of Skogar, which is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, surrounded by beautiful scenery. A trail located on the right side of the waterfall offers explorers the chance to view the waterfall from various angles. Then, visit the local village of Vik where you will have time to have lunch. The famous Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon will be your next stop. The beautiful picturesque glacier lagoon has been featured in various Hollywood movies for good reason. See majestic icebergs floating in the peaceful lagoon, and add an (optional)...
Great tour, only downfall was we didn’t stop at Skogafoss as it’s stated in the listing.
Travel through the dramatic geothermal landscapes of Iceland on route to the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. Marvel at the tall mountain of Hvannadalshnjúkur and the black sand desert between Skaftafell National Park and the lagoon. Stop at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall for the chance to walk to the other side. Upon arrival at Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, walk to the edge and get a sense of incredible tranquility as ice up to 1,500 years old drifts across the lake.
This is a long tour but plenty of stops along the way. According to the tour description we were meant to stop to hunt for northern lights but guide did not mention anything and we went back to hotels. Maybe it was too obvious that we could not see them with the weather on the day, but maybe the description of the tour is incorrect too. At the end we were happy to go to the hotel after such a long day :)

Our guide Matt was amazing! The most intelligent and funny guid that we have had in Iceland so far. Our bus driver Kal was also amazing. We chose to skip coffee and see some extra sights and it was sooo worth it. It’s a long day but I learned more in this trip than any where else while in this country! The lagoon boat is a must don’t skip it. The waterfalls are also incredible! All the glaciers were more exciting because Matt knew everything about every single one. I appreciate that he enjoys his job so much. His passion is intoxicating.
Our Guide Gud was very friendly and had a very calm and knowledgeable attitude.!He guaranteed a safe environment for the whole group and at every stop. The scenery was stunning, but be prepared for a long journey! There have been enough stops for supplies and pictures. Insider: I have never been called pretty boy that much in my life. (I hope you guys read the reviews!)
Informative. Well organized. But if u have a child, it will be better to book another one. There is a lot of tours where u shouldn't pay for children.
This was a great tour. Our guide Rok had a lot of interesting information to tell and the glacier lagoon was pretty amazing.
It was amazing to see the icebergs and the glaciar, although it is really far away!!
