Absolutely worth the 4.5 hour drive from Reykjavik. The sound of the ice the way it glistens when the sun comes up will leave you in awe. Take the drive

Such a beautiful and unique place to stop. Take the boat tour and ride around glaciers. Truly an amazing stop!

This was my favourite place in Iceland. We did a long walk around the lagoon and beach and then took a zodiac boat ride to the glacier. A great day

Never seen anything like it. Huge icebergs floating around a beautiful lagoon against a backdrop of snow capped mountains. We had beautiful weather, so after our boat trip around the lagoon and watching a giant iceberg break up and roll, we sunbathed on a black...More

Whilst touring the south coast of Iceland make sure this is a place you visit. It is amazing to see the icebergs floating past and out too sea!

Here is much better than Alaska when talking about the proximity to the glacier pieces. We are so lucky visiting on May 18, 2017, very good sunny day. This allow us to see Glaciers pieces so crystal clear, white, and blue under the sunshine. Must...More

It really depends on your onward travel plans but allow at least an hour, can't say about the boat tours since we didn't take one
Hi! I am thinking of going for a day from Selfoss, then spending the night in Vik. Do you recommend doing some kind of tour when you get there or is it something to just explore on your own? I have 2 kids 11 & 13. Thank you!!
