We visit the village of Kirkjubæjarklaustur, stopping to admire beautiful waterfalls along the way.
Our journey continues on to Skaftafell National Park were we stop at the visitor center and take a short hike (optional) to Svartifoss waterfall cascading down stacks of basalt columns. As we make our way back towards Reykjavik we might be able to catch a glimpse of the eternal kiss of the Icelandic trolls along the way before we will visit the serene, beautiful 100 meter deep Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon and more… Glacier Lagoon tour is truly something you’ll never forget!
