Description

The Glacier lagoon is one of the longer day tours in the BusTravel Iceland catalogue but it is most certainly worth the drive. Located on the south east part of the island the Glacier Lagoon is a stunning force of nature which is fed from the largest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull.

As the ice breaks away from the melting glacier it drifts through the lagoon and towards the ocean which creates a very unique landscape that is constantly moving and shifting. We will also have some time during the drive to visit additional famous stops on the south coast including the mysterious Seljalandsfoss waterfall that you can walk behind.

Jökulsárlón: The Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón, known colloquially as the Glacier lagoon, is an interesting body of water which connects the nearby Vatnajökull glacier with the North Atlantic Ocean. This area became a popular tourist destination, due to the ice breaking away from the glacier and drifting out to the ocean creating a constantly landscape that resembles art.

Seljalandsfoss waterfall

Seljalandsfoss is a fascinating waterfall and perhaps one of the most visited waterfalls in Iceland. Its popularity is well deserved as the Seljalandsfoss waterfall houses a very special surprise, in the summertime you are able to walk behind the cascade and get a tremendous view of the waterfall from behind.

The water that feeds this 60m tall waterfall originates from the (in)famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier capped volcano. just make sure to be careful as you walk along this path as it can get slippery and wet!

Village of Vík

Vík í Mýrdal is a small village and is in fact the most southerly village on the island. The town only houses 300 inhabitants but this is a great location for you to get gifts for the people waiting for you back home and get something nice to eat.

Diamond Beach

The Diamond Beach is maybe the most photogenic place on the whole island. The ice from the Glacier Lagoon drifts out of the lagoon into the ocean and at some point back to the beach. The beach is a beautiful black sand beach which makes the blue ice just look like diamonds on the beach!
