Glacier Lagoon & Black Diamond Beach

Private Day Tour to Jökulsárlón & Black Diamond beach

Join this private day tour of some of Iceland’s most magnificent attractions, exploring the wonders of the South Coast and the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón. If you want to witness some of the country’s most spectacular sceneries without boarding the big tour buses, this super jeep excursion is your perfect choice. 

Your adventure begins as you get picked up in Reykjavík City, where you will meet your experienced local guide and board your modified Super Jeep vehicle, by all standards the best mode of transportation when trekking through the landscapes of the land of ice and fire. 

On your scenic drive along the island’s South Shore, you will be visiting two of the most famous waterfalls of the country, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, each boasting a drop of 60 metres (200 feet), in a stunning display of raw, cascading powers. 

Trailing past the glacier volcano Eyjafjallajökull, you will also be stopping at Vík Village to admire the black sand beach Reynisfjara, home to the eerie sea stacks Reynisdrangar and the incredible rock formations of Dyrhólaey. 

You can stop for refreshments in Vík, enjoying some coffee or local cuisine, before getting back in your Super Jeep and heading onwards in the direction of Skaftafell National Park.

Then, passing the volcanic and awe-inspiring Öræfajökull Glacier, you will find yourself at the one and only Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Here, floating icebergs from Iceland’s largest ice cap Vatnajökull have gathered in a serene and otherworldly display. 

Some of the bergs make it out to sea, while others lay scattered across a stretch of black sand dubbed the Diamond Beach, seeing as the glistening icebergs resemble gemstones, sparkling in the sun on their dark velvet blanket. 

After such a memorable day of sightseeing, you will be whisked back to Reykjavík City in the evening. Don’t miss out on this super jeep excursion of the South Coast and Skaftafell, concluding with the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón.
