On this tour, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful south coast of Iceland and the stunning Snaefellsnes peninsula on the west coast. We will begin by heading to the Snaefellsnes peninsula, home to the still-active Snaefellsjokull Glacier. Along the coast, we will see incredibly beautiful rock formations, bird cliffs, and Kirkjufell, one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland. We will also take the Golden Circle route, where we will walk through the rift valley at Thingvellir, see the iconic Gullfoss waterfall, and witness the eruption of the Strokkur hot spring at Geysir. We will also get to know the Icelandic horse and learn about how Icelanders use geothermal energy to produce vegetables.
On the south coast of Iceland, we will explore two magnificent waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, before visiting Reynisfjara, a black sand beach covered in small polished black pebbles and stones. This beach is surrounded by cliffs full of birds that make beautiful sounds during the summer. The highlight of the trip will be Jokulsarlon, where we will witness icebergs that have broken off from the glacier and float in a lagoon that has formed over the last hundred years. These icebergs then drift from the lagoon, eventually washing up on the nearby black sand beach, resembling giant diamonds sparkling in the sun.

In the morning, we will embark on a boat ride among the icebergs on the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, one of the most magnificent places on earth. Here, icebergs that have broken off the receding glacier float around the lagoon, creating a stunning sight. A short glacial river serves as a runway for the icebergs to reach the nearby beach where they appear like huge diamonds on the black sand. In recent years, this beach has been commonly referred to as Diamond Beach. After the boat ride, we will start our journey back to Reykjavik, taking in the breathtaking scenery along the way.
