Day One - The Grand South Coast and Northern Lights
We drive along the south coast and admire all the spectacular scenes along the way. Your first stop will be at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, with the famous Eyjafjallajokull, home of the massive eruption that halted all European air travel in 2010, rising above. After that, we make our way to Skógafoss waterfall before we continue on to Reynisfjara black sand beach. Here the Reynisdrangar peaks emerge just off shore and a basalt column cave can be explored. Throughout the entire drive, passengers can expect breathtaking surroundings; lava fields, glaciers and jagged mountain ridges.
As we keep on heading east we get closer to our place of accommodation near Skaftafell. Once there, we can enjoy a nice meal at a local restaurant. We will go out to hunt for the northern lights if the conditions are in our favor - the Aurora Borealis is best spotted out of the lights of the city.
Day Two - Land of Ice
The second day is all about Vatnajökull glacier, Europe’s biggest ice cap. We start at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where the floating icebergs are sure to take your breath away. The glacier lagoon has been used as a location for many big movies and tv shows over the years, e.g. Game of Thrones and Batman Begins. Next, we head to the Crystal Ice Cave where our certified guides will assure a safe and exciting adventure. Experience the magical blue light seeping through the Ice and get a once in a lifetime possibility to capture it with a photo. On our trip, we will visit one cave.
After the Crystal Ice Cave, we start heading back to Reykjavík. We will stop at Skaftafell Nature Reserve. Driving back the same route gives us a possibility to make extra stops at some of the places visited on day one or explore different ones. We will make sure to look for the Northern Lights as the evening closes in.
