Out of Reykjavik the tour takes route 1 east across Hellisheiði, you travel past the green house village of Hveragerði and through Selfoss town, the commercial hub of south Iceland. Continuing east from Selfoss you will see arguably the most picturesque waterfall in Iceland, the 60 m tall Seljalandsfoss cascades down from ancient sea cliffs into a shallow pool. Walking behind the waterfall provides some excellent photo ops with spectacular views out to the countryside. Next stop is at Skógar to visit the famous Skógafoss waterfall that by many is considered by the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Continuing from Vík across the sands of Mýrdalssandur you enter the enormous lava field Eldgjárhraun produced during a massive volcanic eruption of Eldgjá volcanic fissure in 934. The lava field covers an area of about 700 km2 and is considered one of the largest lava flows to occur in Iceland since the end of the last ice age.
Next up is the beautiful nature reserve of Skaftafell located in Vatnajökull National Park. Toungues of glaciers that flowing down from the enormous Vatnajökull glacier create majestic scenery begging to be explored. From Skaftafell you journey to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon located at the end of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier that branching the great Vatnajökull glacier. With a depth of around 250 metres, this roughly 18 square kilometre lagoon is packed with huge pieces of ice that have broken loose from the glacier, silently floating towards the sea. After you have enjoyed the dramatic scenery of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon the course is set for a nearby accommodation where where we will enjoy dinner (dinner is not included in tour price) and relax for the remainder of the evening. During winter time, if the weather is good skies clear, you might be able to experience the amazing northern lights flickering in the sky over Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
