South Coast & Glacier Lagoon

This Private Day-Tour allows you to spend a magnificent day devoted to
the wonders of Iceland's south shore. You will see some of Iceland's most
magnificent scenery on the way, including the mighty Skógarfoss with its 60m
drop, black sand desert, and you have the opportunity of sailing in between
icebergs in the summer time (not available in wintertime). Truly a breathtaking
experience On this tour you will see some of Iceland's biggest glacier rivers,
black sands, and just before we reach the lagoon we will pass Iceland's second
largest active volcano in the country, Öræfajökull glacier. Jökulsárlón literally
means glacier lagoon, at the time when first settlers arrived in Iceland, the edge
of Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of the great glacier Vatnajökull, is
thought to have been 20km further north than it is now. The climate began to
cool in about the year 1200, the cold spell reaching a peak in the period 1600-
1900, which is sometimes known as the "Little Ice Age". As a result the glacier
advanced until about 1890, reaching a point only about 1km from the coast at
Jökulsá river. Large blocks of ice break off the edge of the glacier, which is
about 30m high, keeping the lagoon stocked with icebergs
