South Coast, Glacier Lagoon & Ice Cave - Two Day Tour
An icy adventure on the South Coast of Iceland. A 2-day, adventure-filled tour where we explore the magnificent South Coast of Iceland, visit the unforgettable Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon and go ice-caving inside the most incredible natural ice cave in Vatnajokull glacier. Overnight at Country Hotel Gerði.
We start off with an exploration of the South Coast, home to several of Iceland’s iconic natural attractions, before moving on to Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, although at first glance you may think you’ve landed on another planet. This 250m-deep and 18-square-km lagoon is filled with colossal chunks of floating ice that have calved from the glacier. We take plenty of time to explore and photograph this bizarre and beautiful landscape. Our last stop of the day is Gerði Country Hotel, where dinner is available for purchase in the restaurant before we turn in for the night.
On day two we travel to Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in Europe. Hidden inside the glacier is a remarkable natural ice cave just begging to be explored. We’ll gear up with crampons, helmets and headlamps if needed before our gallant guide takes us inside the ice.
