After breakfast, you'll get kitted out before making your way into a naturally-formed ice cave in the Vatnajokull glacier. These ice caves are created by a glacial river that runs through the ice, creating a network of tunnels, with different views everywhere you look. On the coldest winter days, the river freezes, making the caves accessible. On days when the ice caves are not accessible and an expedition into the caves is not possible, you can enjoy a scenic walk on the glacier.
Your next stop is Jokulsarlon, a dramatic glacier lagoon with pristine icebergs floating on the deep blue waters. The main lagoon is vast, measuring approximately 7 square miles. Formerly covered in thick glacier ice, in the 1930s the glacier started to retreat, and these days more than 330 feet of ice breaks away each year to endlessly reshape the lagoon and fill it with huge, spectacular icebergs. Keep your eyes peeled for the seals that bob out of the water and bask on the floating ice.
This afternoon, you will travel back to Reykjavik, and stay at the Sandhotel
. This boutique hotel has a convenient location right in the centre of the city, near shops, restaurants and vibrant bars, enabling you to make the most of your final night in Iceland.
Enjoy a final morning at leisure in the capital before being taken to the airport for your departing flight.
