After enjoying a hot breakfast, you will have a enthralling drive along the south shore of Atlantic. We will make a stop at the spectacular waterfall Skogafoss. Only a few kilometers away from the south shores of Iceland, lies the village of Skógar along the Southern Ring Road. It is a popular center surrounded by unusual scenic beauty. The breath-taking view of Skogáfoss waterfall and scenic surroundings and the snow-capped heights of two towering glaciers are Skógar’s major attractions.Then we proceed to yet another famous waterfall now being the location of the “ Gerua” song – the Seljalandsfoss.
Then we proceed to the peerless Black Beach of the World – the Reynisfjara. The onyx black sand of Reynisfjara is formed from volcanic activity in Iceland. When lava collides with the ocean, it rapidly cools and shatters into small fragments of basalt. Those small fragments are what comprise many of the black sand beaches around Iceland.
Next, comes the major attraction of the tour – the Jokulsarlon Glacier . The iceberg floating in the midst of the frozen sea will take you to an ethereal world. The Skaftafell located inside the Vatnajokull National Park just adjacent adds more to the beauty of this place.The Jokulsarlon is always filled up to the brim due to the water fed by the melting of the glacier from Vatnajokull – the world’s largest glacier. However, the constant melting of the ice now pose as a danger as the glacier might disappear in the next few decades.
Both Reynisfjara and Jokulsarlon happen to be shooting locations of Gerua song.
If weather permits (OPTIONAL TOUR) then one can enjoy an amphibian boat ride right to the heart of the glacier. Post the tour return safely to your hotel preceded by a dinner.
