Golden Circle and South Coast


You will be picked up at a Reykjavík meeting point at 8:00 am to start your tour of the world-famous Golden Circle. We will start with Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unparalleled beauty and historical significance. Geysir is our next destination, where the spouting hot spring Strokkur and bubbling fumaroles attract visitors all year round. The last attraction of the Golden circle is the mighty Gullfoss Waterfall, where you can see the dreamlike golden hue rising from the spray of the glacier water rushing into the canyon.


On our way to our accommodation for the night, we have the chance to visit both Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Overnight in Vík.

Vík - Skaftafell Glacier Hike - Glacier Lagoon - Höfn


We start the day exploring Reynisfjara black sand beach with the glorious Reynisdrangar peaks and basalt column cave. Next, we pass the Mýrdalsjökull glacier and drive through Eldhraun lava field on the way to Skaftafell. Skaftafell is a part of Vatnajökull National park and is a true oasis in the black glacier sands with its green birch forest. Here we will take a three-hour glacier hike, lead by our skilled glacier guides, on one of Vatnajökull’s many outlet glaciers. Next, we make our way to the famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where we will explore the world-famous lagoon as well as the black sand crystal beach filled with ice from the glacier. Overnight in Höfn.

Today we will explore the East fjords of Iceland. We will continue threading our way along the coastline, stopping at Djúpivogur village, a small fishery village. After that, we will go for an invigorating hike to Hengifoss, Iceland’s second-highest waterfall (128m) and Litlanesfoss waterfalls. The hike takes about three hours in total and it takes you to a beautiful gorge where a colourful rock face displays layers from volcanic eruptions in ancient times. After the hike, we make our way to Egilsstaðir where you'll stay overnight.

Today we continue to the beautiful north of Iceland. From Egilsstaðir, we will drive through the wilderness of Möðrudalur, the highest inhabited place in the country, at 469m. We will stop at Dettifoss, Iceland’s most voluminous waterfall before we go to the Mývatn area where we will explore the magnificent landscape around the lake. Here in the Námaskarð geothermal area, Hverfjall crater and Dimmuborgir formations are among the highlights.
