Waking up on the southern tip of Iceland, before you visit the breathtaking Reynisfjara black sand beach, a relishing breakfast is waiting for you. Then, Iceland’s weird beauty will once again show its magic through the basalt columns, rolling waves, and the Reynisdrangar basalt pillars - in the forms of several jagged, unyielding pyramids - standing offshore. Please pay attention to your guide’s suggestion about visiting since the forceful waves can be very dangerous.

On day three, you are going to try a new glacier experience - glacier hiking on *Svínafellsjökull glacier. You will be amazed by its magnificence as the glacier is dynamic, astonishing, and incredibly beautiful. The glacier is constantly moving, slowly but surely. In the process, it creates sinkholes, crevasses, moulins, ice ridge and other ice formations that later your glacier guide will talk about in detail. You will also see them or pass them during the hiking journey. It’s quite an unforgettable adventure. Since the glorious icescape is not an everyday scene - especially you get the chance to step in and appreciate it in a close distance - this immersive experience is a fantastic chance to learn about glacier’s amazing facts.

After a nice breakfast at your hotel, you will step out in Iceland’s crisp winter atmosphere. It’s completely beautiful while the ground is covered by snow and the sky is painted by otherworldly colors reflected from the sun that’s scheduled to run late. After a relaxed morning in Reykjavik, we will meet you for your whale watching tour that’s scheduled at 1 p.m. You will be sailing out to the ocean from Reykjavik Harbor (Old Harbor). This is a classic tour and the winter’s season is special because of the low-lying sun and the beautiful wildlife.
