In the afternoon visit a natural history & seal museum in a small fishing village in Northwest Iceland and stroll around the local harbour. Further north we stop at the turf church of Víðimýri which has been extensively restored to its original form and is widely considered one of the purest and most beautiful examples of traditional Icelandic architecture.

In the afternoon we travel to an important spot in Iceland's history, Goðafoss, the waterfalls of the Gods. We continue to lake Mývatn, famous for its strange lava formations at Kálfaströnd, its pseudocraters at Skútustaðir and its tephra cone Hverfjall.

Vatnajökull Glacier, Glacier Lagoon, Diamond Beach & South Coast

We travel along the southern part of the glacier Vatnajökull and spend some time at Europe’s second largest national park, which has Iceland’s highest mountain, an alpine environment, and Europe’s largest glacier. We stop at Jökulsárlón, a glacial lagoon filled with floating icebergs, and we explore the extraordinary site. If you look closely you might spot some seals swimming in the arctic waters. Depending on the season, optional boat trips are available. You can walk on the black sandy beach, where large icebergs often get stranded; called the Diamond beach.
A beautiful drive with many natural wonders awaits us in the afternoon as we head across the Eldhraun lava field, cross the sandy desert of the South Coast, overlooked by rugged cliffs, glaciers, and waterfalls. The world-famous Reynisfjara shore, near the village Vík, is widely regarded as the most impressive black sand and pebble beach in Iceland and features an amazing cliff of regular basalt columns resembling a rocky step pyramid. Out in the sea are the spectacularly shaped basalt sea stacks Reynisdrangar. In the small village of Skógar, there is the Skógafoss waterfall which is 62 meters high and is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country. Further west we stop at the 65-meter high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall which plunges over the mountain. There is an interesting trail that goes behind the fall – if you are prepared to get wet!
