Travel the entire south coast of Iceland over two adventure filled days! Take in the impressive Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, as well as the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. Walk along the ridges of the Fjarrgljfur canyon. There’s a chance you’ll see the Northern Lights dancing across the sky. Visit Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon where the giant icebergs float around and wash up on Diamond Beach. We meet up with our local ice cave experts to embark on our Ice Cave adventure. We travel in their specialised Super Jeeps to get closer to the glacier. You'll get up close and personal to the astonishingly beautiful ice formations of an outlet glacier of the enormous Vatnajkull icecap. The textures, light and colours will leave you in awe!

You’ll arrive in Iceland from the UK and be transferred to your 3* Hotel in the Capital Reykjavik for a two night stay. Your hotel will have a private bathroom and you can enjoy a buffet breakfast each morning.

On your second day you will be picked up from your hotel and taken on a tour of the famous Golden Circle and enjoy a stop at the wonderful Fontana Wellness Spa.

This amazing day tour takes you around the Golden Circle to see three of Iceland’s highlights Gullfoss waterfall, Geyser geothermal area and Thingvellir National Park, before heading to Fontana’s natural steam baths.

The original sauna was built in the 1920s and was little more than a shack with two compartments, built above the hot spring that bubbles and gurgles below the ground. Today, a modern complex welcomes you to relax with various hot tubs and steam baths naturally heated by Icelandic hot springs.

Upon arrival in Fontana you will take a short walk with a local person to a nearby natural hot spring which is used as a local natural bakery for the village. You will get to know the methods how to bake a loaf of bread in a hot spring and watch while they dig up a typical Icelandic rye bread which has been slowly baked in the hot spring. Before dipping into the Fontana hot tubs and enjoy the natural steam baths you will be offered to taste the rye bread.

At Fontana you can have drinks while relaxing in the hot spring water and enjoy the spectacular view of the lake before heading back to Reykjavik.

On Day 3 after breakfast you will be picked up for your escorted tour. We head out of the capital towards the South Coast where our first stop the thunderous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, falling nearly 60 metres. It may be possible to walk behind this waterfall for amazing views, when it’s not icy. The waterfall is a result of melting glacial ice pouring down from the peak of Eyjafjallajkull.

Our next stop is at the famous Skgafoss waterfall. This 200ft fast flowing vertical waterfall can be enjoyed from afar or up close. Just remember to wear your waterproofs if you go to the very front. On sunny days you might be treated to a rainbow appearing in the mist of the waterfall. The majesty of this waterfall is not lost on popular culture either with both Game of Thrones and Vikings using this location for filming.

Next up, we head to Reynisfjara to see the amazing rock formations at this spectacular black sand beach. The angular basalt columns with their hexagonal shapes are the perfect photo spot on calm days. In winter you are often treated to some intense crashing waves. The Black Beach Restaurant is a great spot to test out some local produce. The locally grown turnip soup is a favourite!

We make a short photo stop in the seaside town Vik, take the chance to grab some snacks from the supermarket in town. Then it is onwards to the Fjadrargljufur Canyon. This almost unpronounceable canyon is a stunning place for a walk to viewpoints for stunning photos. We pass through Skaftafell National Park where you will get views of Iceland's highest mountains and its enormous glaciers.

We end the day at the Lilja Guesthouse, a wonderful 3 star lodging on a traditional farm, located at the foot of Vatnajökull National Park. You will stay in a deluxe room with a private bathroom.

After breakfast the following morning we head out to Jokulsarlon, the iceberg filled lagoon of Vatnajkull National Park is a sight that you will never forget.

We then join our partners in their amazing Super Jeeps to reach the remote ice caves of the enormous Vatnajkull glacier. The blues and textures of these natural ice caves will leave you in awe. We will hike from the super jeep to reach the front of the glacier where we can explore the inside of this icy giant.

Next we walk along the black sand shores of Diamond Beach where enormous icebergs from the glacier lagoon wash up on the beach. The icebergs glisten on the black sand shores like diamonds. Definitely one unique beach visit.

We pass through the enormous moss covered lava fields of Eldhraun on our way back to Reykjavik. We will stop at one of our favourite restaurants on our way back to Reykjavik for a late lunch.

You will be dropped at your hotel and you can spend the evening enjoying the capitals many bars and restaurants before being transferred back to the airport the following day for your flight back to the UK.
