Diamond Beach | Jökulsárlón 14-hour Day Tour
This trip is designed for the need of a one day tour to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. The price shown is for a SUV tour (not a super jeep) – see the booking system.
This tour is for people who have a lot of stamina.
After a very early departure from Reykjavík, we head straight for the promontory of Dyrhólaey, and the black-sand beach of Reynisfjara. When looking south directly from there, the next land would be Antarctica.
Jökulsárlón and Diamond Beach are places of magic, maybe some of the most stunning places on the planet.
During the summer and the shoulder season you can take an optional boat tour among the icebergs of the lagoon (not included in the tour price). You can either take a zodiac boat or the amphibian boat tour, and both are magical experiences. The freezing cold glacial water is a stunning blue. This is a place that really must be visited to be truly understood and appreciated!
Mother Nature has one more gift for us to enjoy here. The smaller icebergs break free from the lagoon and are pulled out to the Atlantic by the tide. There, these millennial bergs stay until they either melt or are pulled back out to sea.
The ice blocks sit on the most stunning jet black velvety fine volcanic beach sand. All these icebergs on the beach, on the black sand, combined with the power of the waves and the sun light reflecting through and off the bergs create a place that is so magical it will literally leave you speechless. Just like diamonds on black velvet. Thus it is called “Diamond Beach”.
During deep winter we will be traveling in the dark for the most part.
We will also see two more of the main highlights of the South Coast, such as the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
Your guide will like to include some secret stops along the way, as time and weather conditions allow. We hope that at the end of the trip you’ll be as pleased as tired ?
