Endless black sand deserts stretching from glacier capped volcanoes to the North Atlantic host veins of glacier melt-water. Huge lakes are home to giant chunks of glacial ice and seal colonies. The sheer cliff edges show the scars of glaciers and are home to countless waterfalls.

The drive to Jökulsárlón is an amazing adventure, but too long to truly enjoy in a single day. One option is to spread the trip over 2 days. This popular overnight tour includes Jökulsarlon and the South coast. We are never far from the glacier lagoon, so we are in a good location if we are lucky enough to see auroras (winter) or to explore the lagoon through the midnight sunlight (Summer). Here we can also catch amazing images on the black sand beach with glacial ice.
Locations and activities: Over the 2 days we can explore many of the great features along the south coast such as the big waterfalls and beautiful beaches. We visit Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Reynisdrengur, Fjaðrárgljúfur, Skaftafell, Jökulsarlon, Fjalsarlon. Activities may include hiking, glacier hiking, ice-cave exploring, Lagoon boat trips, exhibitions and restaurants.
Accommodation: We stay overnight at Hali guest house (winter) or Camp at Skaftafell (Summer)*(*Note: some of these options will vary from Guide to Guide).
Price: Currently we are offering the workshop for $1200. This for 3-4 passengers. It doesn’t include the cost of food and accommodation.
