Day 1 - The Golden Circle
On the first day, we will start our adventure at 8 am in Reykjavík. Once everyone boards the minibus, we will start our adventure to the beautiful Golden Circle.
Geysir Geothermal Area
The Geysir geothermal area hosts many colorful hot springs. One called Strokkur is a geyser, which erupts every 5 minutes up to 35 meters. It was named after “Geysir” the original erupting hot spring, that gave all the geysers in the world their name, however extinct today.
The melting water from Iceland's second biggest glacier, Langjökull, falls into a deep canyon forming the majestic “Golden Falls”. On a sunny day, you can see the glacier Langjökull in the distance and enjoy a rainbow in the mist of the waterfall, a photo blockbuster waiting to happen!
Thingvellir National Park
We visit the place where the two tectonic plates, the North American and the Eurasian plate, are moving away from each other. Few places in the world offer a better and clearer view of this massive geographic activity. The biggest natural lake in Iceland is also located at Thingvellir National Park and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Thingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. as Icelanders founded here their parliament in 930 AD where the chieftains had their annual meeting every summer. The name “Thingvellir” translates to “Parliament Plains”.
We will spend the first night of our adventure at a nice 3* Hotel with a private bathroom (usually Hotel Hvolsvöllur depending on availability).
Day 2 - The South Coast of Iceland
In the morning after breakfast, we will continue our adventure through majestic waterfalls and glaciers. Today, we will be hiking on a glacier!
Upon arrival you will enjoy the powerful theatrics of Seljalandsfoss. Bring a raincoat and you’ll be able to make the short hike behind the falls. The scene behind the fall and the trembling ground from the power of the falling water makes for an automatic photo blockbuster!
Further east along the coast is Skógafoss waterfall. Skógafoss is an incredibly picturesque sight: tucked in a little gorge, the river Skógá tumbles down a 60 meters cliff before continuing down the landscape towards the Atlantic Ocean. Alongside the gorge, a staircase can take you to the shelf above the waterfall for stunning views.
Glacier Hike in Skaftafell or Sólheimajökull
We will then continue our journey towards one of Iceland’s largest glaciers. 9% of Iceland is currently covered by ice. Once we get to the area, we will put crampons on, helmets, ice axes, and start hiking towards the glacier.
While on the glacier, we will visit crevasses, moulins, and many other great formations of the magnificent ice.
Day 3 - Glacier Lagoon & The Black Sand Beach
On our last day after a good night rest, we will go explore a few more of the most magical places in Iceland. Today, we will take a boat and to see the icebergs, will explore the famous Diamond Beach, and some more stops on the way.
Jökulsárlón: the Glacier Lagoon
Jökulsárlón is a 200m deep glacier water lagoon fed by the melting of Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull. Enormous icebergs also fall from Breiðamerkurjökull all year round so the lagoon is usually filled with ice blocks that floats South.
Boat Tour in Jökulsárlón
Afterwards we will take you on an unforgettable Boat Ride Tour at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, where you will get a chance to get closer to the floating icebergs!
On the other side of the road, the icebergs from Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon float into the Atlantic Ocean where they are quickly thrown back to shore by the tide and winds. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice blocks in all shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight. The ice itself comes in all shades of white and blue forming beautiful contrasts.
Reynisfjara: the Black Sand Beach
We visit the Black Sand Beach of Reynisfjara where the Atlantic coastline presents massive waves hitting the unique basalt pillars in the cliffs above the sand. The cliffs of Dýrhólaey are seen in the distance. This area of the south is also a paradise for bird lovers, as puffins, razorbills and dozens of other species nest on top of these cliffs in the summertime.
Back to Reykjavík
We will then start heading back to Reykjavik and are expected to arrive around 8pm, though this may be subject to change depending on weather and road conditions.
