Iceland – South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Another day trip from Reykjavik that we planned was the South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.  For this trip, we went with Gray Line Iceland, which was also extremely organised, just like Reykjavik Excursions.

Along the way, we stopped at two iconic waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls.

About halfway to Jökulsárlón, we passed the Vatnajökull Glacier which is at Skaftafell National Park.  Vatnajökull is the largest glacier in Iceland.  And then finally, we made it to Jökulsárlón!  The skies even cleared for our arrival 🙂  We had plenty of time to view the ice, and were also treated to an amphibious boat ride in the lagoon.  I took way too many photos, but here are some of the best ones!
