Boattrip on Vatnajökull Glacier Lagoon and an ATV excursion along Sudurfjordur beach in constantly renewed surroundings.
We fly to Höfn in Hornafjördur, a young town partially framed by Vatnajökull Glacier, larger that all other glaciers in Europe combined. This glacier and its various tongues flow along steep mountainsides, gently dominating the region´s coastline. Our waiting coach drives us to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, where huge, aqua-blue icebergs dot this mystical space. We board a boat and shove off for an otherworldly cruise, zigzagging between the imposing bergs. This area was the setting for the opening scenes of the James Bond film, Die Another Day. Next we are taken to boats that carry us from Ósland park to this completely uninhabited beach, a strip of black sand holding back the Atlantic breakers from Vatnajökull. On fourwheelers/ ATV´s, we will drive to the mouth of the estuary, which is the most treacherous entrance channel to any Icelandic harbour. Besides examining ruins from World War II, we will observe the rich bird life along the beach, where we in turn are likely to be watched by curious seals. An excursion along Suðurfjörur beach is a unique opportunity to enjoy pure, constantly renewed surroundings, while looking through the clear coastal air at some of the most beautiful scenery in Iceland. We will visit the Glacier Exhibition in Höfn to learn about the area, the nature and basic glaciology. The Exhibition rooms provide a direct view to Vatnajökull and some of its outlet glaciers. A platform on the roof is also accessible for a panoramic view of the surroundings.
