Passing by dramatic East fjords and tiny fishing villages continue driving south by coach and, on your way, stop to visit an interesting stone and mineral collection. In the afternoon, travel towards Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon - a natural wonderland where chunks of glacial ice tumble into the lake creating a visual spectacle of gigantic icebergs floating in the blue waters.
