Vatnajökull National Park
This day, you will continue your journey along the stunning coastline. You head out in the direction to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. On your way there, your guide will make a stop at Skaftafell Nature Reserve, a part of the Vatnajökull National Park. You can spend time marveling at the area’s great beauty by trekking the many well-maintained hiking trails, including a short walk to the beautiful Svartifoss waterfall, which features pitch-black hexagonal basalt columns and a rugged canyon.
At the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon which has been set for many Hollywood movies, you can witness the slow breakdown of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier as huge blocks of ice constantly break off the glacier and float on the lagoon. On Diamond Beach, you can find small icebergs (crystals) that have washed ashore and look like glittering diamonds. Many seals call this beach home, and it is one of the best places in the country to see Orcas from the shore.
At Fjallsárlón, close to Jökulsárlón, you get to take a safe Zodiac boat ride and cruise between magnificent towering icebergs that fill the lagoon. The boat will take you close to the glaciers, providing dramatic views of the blue and white icebergs and the breaking glacier tongue. Once you've explored these incredible natural treasures, you'll head to Hella area, where you will stay for the night.
