Drive along the beautiful south shore of Iceland to the extraordinary glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón. On the way, we will pass some charming villages, Skaftafell National Park, visit Skógafoss waterfall, pass Iceland’s biggest volcano and Öræfajökull glacier which has the highest peak on the island, Hvannadalshnjúkur (2110 m).

Our first stop of the day is Skogarfoss Waterfall, one of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls of the country with a width of 25 meters and a drop of 60 meters. Due to the amount of spray, single or double rainbows are often visible on sunny days.

Skaftafell is a beautiful mountainous region in the south of Iceland on the southern edge of the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier.

The area is an amazing place to view the great contrasts between active volcanoes, mighty glaciers, powerful glacier rivers and endless flat, sandy plains.
