GOLDEN CIRCLE

Strokkur in winter

From Reykjavik the Golden Circle tour takes you via Nesjavellir geothermal field up to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site where the tectonic plates of Europe and North America meet and one of the world's oldest parliament was founded in 930 AD. You‘re then treated up close and personal to one of Iceland‘s largest personalities: Gullfoss (Golden Falls). Majestic and thunderous, the force and beauty of this two tiered waterfall will be something your camera wants to linger on.
Next up is Geysir geothermal area, home of the famous Geysir and Strokkur hot springs. The Strokkur hot spring erupts every 5 minutes or so, making it one of the most active geyser. From Geysir area the trip continues to Skálholt Church which was the seat of religious power in Iceland for centuries and where some of the most dramatic events in Iceland's history took place.

South Coast

Jökulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Out of Reykjavik the tour takes route 1 east across Hellisheiði, you travel past the green house village of Hveragerði and through Selfoss town, the commercial hub of south Iceland. Continuing east from Selfoss you will see arguably the most picturesque waterfall in Iceland, the 60 m tall Seljalandsfoss cascades down from ancient sea cliffs into a shallow pool. Walking behind the waterfall provides some excellent photo ops with spectacular views out to the countryside. Next stop is at Skógar to visit the famous Skógafoss waterfall that by many is considered by the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Continuing from Vík across the sands of Mýrdalssandur you enter the enormous lava field Eldgjárhraun produced during a massive volcanic eruption of Eldgjá volcanic fissure in 934. The lava field covers an area of about 700 km2 and is considered one of the largest lava flows to occur in Iceland since the end of the last ice age.

Next up is the beautiful nature reserve of Skaftafell located in Vatnajökull National Park. Toungues of glaciers that flowing down from the enormous Vatnajökull glacier create majestic scenery begging to be explored. From Skaftafell you journey to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon located at the end of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier that branching the great Vatnajökull glacier. With a depth of around 250 metres, this roughly 18 square kilometre lagoon is packed with huge pieces of ice that have broken loose from the glacier, silently floating towards the sea. After you have enjoyed the dramatic scenery of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon the course is set for a nearby accommodation where where we will enjoy dinner (dinner is not included in tour price) and relax for the remainder of the evening. During winter time, if the weather is good skies clear, you might be able to experience the amazing northern lights flickering in the sky over Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

Glacier Lagoon - Reynisfjara

Beach at Reynisfjara

After breakfast, you get to spend some time at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and also take a walk by the lagoon and explore the black sand shores where seals are commonly seen basking. Returning west towards Reykjavik tour will take you to Dyrhólaey island, a beautiful promontory that constitutes the southernmost point of the Iceland‘s mainland. Formed in a sub-aquatic eruption thousands of years ago Dyrhólaey is about 120 metres tall, home to an array of seabirds. Visits to Dyrhólaey Island may be cancelled due to wether conditions. Heading back towards the capital you will have one last stop to explore the amazing Reynisfjara shore and the strangely shaped basalt columns of Reynisdrangar. Overnight in Reykjavik.
