Diamond Beach

Next to Jökulsárlón, we will find Diamond Beach. It is a volcanic beach of black sand full of ice blocks detached from the Vatnajökull glacier. That is why they look like diamonds that sparkle in the sun and make this beach so well known.

We will arrive at the Stjórnarfoss waterfall, hidden in the historic town of Kirkjubaejarklaustur and observe the symmetrical waterfall divided into two stages of 15 meters each.
