Day 1:
On your first day you'll journey along the south coast of the country, making stops at the renowned waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. You'll be able to walk behind, and around, Seljalandsfoss waterfall for some fantastic photo opportunities and you can walk all the way up to, and even to the top of Skógafoss waterfall. Your next stop will be at the stunning, black beach of Reynisfjara. The surf here can be so awesome that it can easily carry people out to sea if they're not careful. At the same time, you'll witness the forces of nature first hand as you admire the crashing waves on the impressive sea stacks and rows of basalt columns.The highlight of the first day is Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the nearby Diamond Beach. You'll be able to gaze at the countless icebergs floating around in the lagoon and scattered along the beach in the early evening glow before heading to your accommodation in Hotel Höfn in the nearby town. The town of Höfn is famous for its seafood, and it is recommended you try the lobster. Remember to look out for the northern lights during nighttime.

Overnight: Hotel Hofn

Day 2:
The second day begins with the highlight of the whole tour, a visit inside a natural glacier ice cave, inside Vatnajökull glacier. You'll be driven there in a modified super jeep, and then you'll get to explore the crystal blue ice on foot for 45 minutes. You'll be given crampons to cross the ice, but remember to pack good, waterproof boots! After your ice cave experience you'll be driven back along the south coast towards Vík and finish your trip in Reykjavík in the evening.
