Day 1

Please be ready at your pickup location at 08:30. Pickup starts at 8:30, and the tour will depart from Reykjavík at 09:00. On day one, you will visit these stunning places.

Þingvellir National Park

The Þingvellir National Park is not only a place of natural beauty but also of historical significance for Icelanders. It is here that the Alþing general assembly was established around 930 AD. Since then, numerous historical events have taken place in this area. This is also where you can see how the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates slowly drift apart. Þingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Geysir Hot Spring Area

The Geysir geothermal area is named for the sleeping giant Geysir. It has entertained onlookers for over 1,000 years, with jets of boiling water shooting high in the sky. Though Geysir sometimes goes inactive for years at a time, as he is now, Strokkur still likes to put on a dazzling display, blasting water as high as 40 m (131 ft).

Gullfoss Waterfall

Gullfoss waterfall is a must-stop on any Golden Circle tour, popular on lists of the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe. Powered by pure glacial runoff, water shoots along the two-tiered falls before plunging into the rugged canyon far below.

Kerið Crater

Formed by a volcanic eruption some 3,000 years ago, the turquoise lake makes this colorful crater special at its bottom. The lake contrasts beautifully with the striking red-and-black walls of the crater. The entry fee to this area is included in the tour price.

Day 2

On day two, you will explore five beautiful waterfalls and visit a black sand beach.


The famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall is located beneath the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano. This waterfall is known for being the one you can walk behind. Close by is the beautiful but less known waterfall Gljufrabui which you will visit.


With a drop of 60 meters, Skógarfoss is one of the most impressive waterfalls on the South Coast. Here waterproof clothes will come in handy!

Kvernufoss & Írafoss

In addition to the famous waterfalls you will visit today, you will also stop at the secret waterfalls of Kvernufoss and Írafoss.

Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach

The black sand beach of Reynisfjara nestles under Mt. Reynisfjall. Black basalt has been shaped into different unique formations, most notably the famous Reynisdrangar. Beware the might of the Atlantic Ocean, which looms with its powerful waves.

Northern Lights

If conditions are reasonable, you can go out looking for the Northern Lights in the evening.

Day 3

You will set out on a true glacier adventure in the morning before heading back to Reykjavík.

Skaftafell National Park

Skaftafell is part of the Vatnajökull National Park. The views in Skaftafell are truly amazing; on a good day, you will get an unforgettable view of the mighty Vatnajökull glacier.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

The Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is filled with huge chunks of ice that have cracked off the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin. Jökulsárlón is one of the pearls of Icelandic nature, and you do not want to miss a visit to this stunning lagoon.

Blue Ice Cave Tour

Ice caves only form in the winter when glacial water freezes to create this unique natural phenomenon. Each season, the local glacier experts find the best caves to visit enjoyably and safely. The glacier lagoon drives you through the best of Icelandic highlands in a special Super Jeep to the ice cave. You will have about an hour to explore and enjoy the magical blue caves. Please do not forget to bring your camera!

After this unforgettable adventure, you drive back to the Jökulsárlón, where you join the bus again to head back to Reykjavik. On the way back, you can enjoy the beautiful nature of the South Coast and make a quick stop in Vik village for some refreshments while keeping an eye out for the Northern lights if the conditions are right.

Guests usually return to Reykjavík around 21:30. You will be dropped off at your selected location.
