Tour Description

This spectacular tour will take us over the colorful area of Kjós, which bursts with greenery and life, as we make our way past the Morsárdalur glacier valley on our way to the mighty Öræfajökull volcanic glacier that is dominated by Mt. Hvannadalshnjúkur (2110 m) – Iceland’s tallest peak.

From there, we will push on to the mesmerizing Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, where shimmering hunks of ice glide from the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and come to rest on the dark volcanic sands of the iconic Diamond Beach, creating a stark scene that is breathtakingly beautiful.

We will also see the retreating Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and the mighty Esjufjöll Mountains, ensuring that this majestic tour encompasses some of the most beautiful sights that the land of fire and ice has to offer.
