Golden Circle Classic Day Trip from Reykjavik

Head out to the magnificent glacial lagoon Jokulsarlon, and follow in the footsteps of James Bond in "Die Another Day" and Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider". This exhilarating full-day excursion from Reykjavik takes you along Iceland's southern coastline, known for its exquisite mountain scenery.

Many of Iceland's biggest glacier rivers run into the Atlantic Ocean on the country's southern shore. Along the way to this amazing coastline you'll pass charming villages such as Selfoss, Vik and Kirkjubaejarklaustur, and the Skaftafell National Park; there is also a stop to visit the Skogarfoss waterfall.

Thorsmork is a narrow valley situated between three glaciers named Myrdals, Eyjafjalla and Tindafjallajokull. Porsmork was a fjord some 12,000 years ago (as your guide will explain) and the outlet glaciers tumble and crawl down into the gullies, some of them ending in spectacular glacial lagoons.
