After breakfast our private driver guide will pick the group up from the Saga Hotel to embark on our adventure to explore the entire south coast of Iceland. We’ll visit Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls before taking a walk on Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. We continue our drive further east where we’ll soon start to see the spectacular glaciers and Iceland’s highest mountains until we come into our accommodation for the night at Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon. The hotel is in a great location for seeing the northern lights on a clear winter’s night, with a wake-up call offered by the hotel, if you haven’t spotted them before bed.

October 8 | Ice Cave & Super Jeep adventures within Vatnajökull National Park, Northern Lights
After breakfast we are heading to one of our all-time favorite locations in Iceland, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. It is here we meet with our partners in the area who are taking us to the real highlight of the trip, our ice cave adventure. Together in their specialized super jeeps they take us over the rugged terrain to a more remote part of the glacier. From here it’s only a short walk to witness the blues and textures of these natural works of art. Once we come back to Jökulsárlón we take time to explore the enormous glacier lagoon and the icebergs which float around. Seals can often be spotted swimming amongst the icebergs. We make our way over to the Diamond Beach, where the icebergs from the lagoon flow with the tide out to the ocean and wash up on the shores of the black sand beach. We then head west to the charming Hotel UMI.
Activities: Ice Cave Tour with all glacier gear provided (harness, helmet, axe and crampons)
Meals: 3 course dinner at Hotel UMI Restaurant
