Diamond Beach in Iceland

Itinerary

Embark on an unforgettable private tour from Reykjavik to the captivating South Coast of Iceland. Your journey will encompass charming villages, the remarkable Skaftafell Nature Reserve, and the mesmerizing Seljalandsfoss waterfall before reaching the pinnacle of the tour, the renowned Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. This iconic lagoon is not only one of the country’s top attractions but also holds the distinction of being Europe’s largest glacial lake and Iceland’s deepest, plunging an impressive 260 meters. Initially measuring only 4.5 square kilometers in 1934, the lagoon has expanded to nearly 25 square kilometers. Enhance your experience by opting for a boat tour, sailing amidst the colossal floating icebergs, with the choice between a zodiac or amphibian boat ride, available as an additional booking.

Close to Jokulsarlon, you’ll discover the famed Diamond Beach, a unique black sand beach adorned with life-sized ice sculptures stretching as far as the eye can see. This captivating location is a popular destination for both tourists and locals, offering breathtaking photo opportunities with its striking contrast of natural elements. Nestled amidst the awe-inspiring power of the South Coast, this area offers an incredible and truly unforgettable experience.

On your return journey, you’ll visit the enchanting Skógafoss waterfall, renowned for its breathtaking beauty. Descend the staircase to witness the waterfall cascading into the gorge below, where you’ll be greeted by black sand and the possibility of witnessing a stunning rainbow. Visible from the ring road, Skógafoss waterfall resembles a masterpiece, evoking a sense of wonder and awe.

Our itinerary also includes a visit to Reynisfjara black sand beach, a mesmerizing destination where you can marvel at the striking Reynisdrangar sea stacks and explore the captivating cave nestled within Reynisfjara.

Immerse yourself in the majesty of Iceland’s South Coast, where nature’s grandeur unfolds at every turn, creating an extraordinary and awe-inspiring adventure.

As this is a private tour, you have the flexibility to personalize your experience and communicate your preferences to the guide.
