Day 1  

Pick up from Reykjavik.

The Golden Circle Classic is our bestselling day tour! Follow in the footsteps of the Vikings of old as you walk down into the rift valley where the American and Eurasian continental plates are pulling apart at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament. Witness the steaming geothermal springs as the ground trembles and hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser at the home of the one-and-only original geyser and Iceland’s most iconic natural attraction. Experience the magnificence and power of Gullfoss Waterfall, a set of glacial river cascades falling 32 meters into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar. The best part is that this is all done within 8 hours!

When night falls, we set off in search of the magical and mysterious Northern Lights!  

Drop off in Reykjavik.

Day 2 

Pick up from Reykjavik.

The South Coast awaits. Leaving Reykjavik, we drive eastwards along the southern coastline and explore a volcanic and glacial wonderland. On clear days, Hekla, the infamous Eyjafjalljökull volcanoes along with the Westman Islands, can be seen rising in the distance as you approach the Solheimajökull Glacier, a photographer’s delight and the first stop on the tour. The next destination is the otherworldly black beach known as Reynisfjara, where the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crash upon the black sands from which the seemingly man-made hexagonal basalt columns rise to cliffs filled with nesting sea birds. After taking in your fill of the unique geological formations, the tour will continue onto the small village of Vík, with a church upon a hill overlooking three volcanic stone columns, said to be trolls turned to stone along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

After Vík, the trip back towards Reykjavik will take you to the powerful Skógafoss waterfall, where a short walk up a flight of stairs will reveal one of Iceland’s most scenic views. From here, we will head to the final stop, the 60-meter-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, famous for the hidden pathway leading behind and around this stunning sight. With some luck and sunny weather conditions, rainbows may add to the spectacular experience at each waterfall. 

Drop off in Reykjavik.

Please wear warm, waterproof clothes and hiking shoes! 

For the In-Bus-Audio-Guide: Bring your own headphones. Otherwise, headphones are available for purchase on every bus from our hosts.

For your comfort: Dress according to the weather. In Iceland, it is always wise to dress in warm, waterproof clothes. Weather changes can be sudden, so be prepared for all weather conditions. A waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves, and warm socks/waterproof shoes are recommended, especially since we will be outside at night.

For Northern Lights: Cameras are almost always better at capturing the northern lights and are more sensitive than our eyes. If you have a DSLR camera and a tripod, bring them along.
