Tour Description

Join this 3-day tour exploring the South of Iceland to discover the Golden Circle, stunning glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, strong rivers, magic waterfalls and the amazing Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon.

The classic Golden Circle includes Thingvellir National Park, Geysir and Gullfoss waterfall and we add a visit to the unique Kerid Volcanic Crater. During these three days, you will also visit magic waterfalls, the Black Beach of Reynisfjara, and the stunning Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is where huge icebergs float in ice-cold water and seals swim around them next to the Diamond Beach.

The highlights of the tour are a boat tour in Jokulsarlon the glacier lagoon in front of the biggest glacier in Europe which is located in the most amazing National park in Iceland AND a Glacier hike on blue ice in Solheimajokull. Our glacier guides are professionals and they will provide you all safety equipment needed for the Glacier Hike (crampons, ice axes, etc) and teach you how to use them in a correct way.

The scenery and views of the Glacier are stunning and you see ice sculptures and the deep crevasses of the glacier in a very clear way.

If you want to witness one of Iceland’s most incredible natural phenomenon, then you should book this tour now. There is an extremely limited availability of this unique tour.

Please note: it is only possible to bring a small carry on luggage such as backpacks for the tour.

DAY 1 – THE GOLDEN CIRCLE & KERID VOLCANIC CRATER

The Golden circle is the most popular destination in Iceland. Geysers, Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir are a must see for any visitor to our island.

We want to add something unique to your experience and that´s why we will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerid. The crater is 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep. There is a lake in the bottom of the crater which gives it a little bit of magic. The lake is almost 14 m deep.

Thingvellir National park is the National shire of all Icelanders. It lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland, a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, the junction of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America.

Geysir – the biggest geysers of Haukadalur are Strokkur and Geysir itself, which gives the others their name. Strokkur erupts every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters.

Gullfoss is one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland. We will stay overnight in a cozy guesthouse very near to the great waterfall Seljalandsfoss.

DAY 2 – SOUTH COAST, WATERFALLS & Glacier Hike

We start with visiting the two great waterfalls of the South coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, as well as visiting lesser known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui, Kvernufoss and Irafoss. We make a stop where guests can buy lunch.

As we continue we will drive under the great Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and the Myrdalsjokull glacier cap, where we take a Glacier Hike for about 1,5 hours and have a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier.

A bit further is the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes upon black sands and hexagonal basalt columns and rock stacks tower over the surroundings.

We will be staying again overnight in a Nicehostel Seljalands, a very cozy accommodation close to the famous Seljalandsfoss.

DAY 3 – GLACIER LAGOON AND skaftafell national park

Today, you will take a close look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. After a stop in the lovely village of Vik, we drive to the East where we visit the waterfall Foss á Sidu and the National park in Skaftafell where we make a stop where guests can buy lunch.

Then we head to the amazing Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon where you will have a boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. The lagoon is full of huge chunks of ice which crack off Breidamerkurjokull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin. There is a good possibility of seeing seals swimming around the huge icebergs.

After enjoying this wonderful experience we head back in the afternoon towards Reykjavik where we estimate to arrive around 21:15 (09:15 pm).

  1. We had an amazing time. We didn’t plan a long trip to Iceland and wanted to see as much as possible. This was a great way. Lots of sights and enough time at each to really enjoy them. Very knowledgeable guide and we got to visit some hidden gems. Bring a rain coat for the trips behind the waterfall and the pop up rain shower. Our stay at the Hostel was so perfect. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Good food and friendly hosts. We loved every minute!

  2. This tour was fantastic! Valli, our tour guide, was not only informative, friendly and accommodating but so much fun! The decision to do a 3 day tour over multiple 1 day was perfect. Valli helped us stay on track so we could see as much as possible in the 3 days. The guest house was clean and the folks there were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Felt like family. Don’t miss out on this tour, you won’t be sorry. I didn’t want the 3 days to end.

  3. I had a wonderful time. This was a well organized tour and the sights were incredible. The only criticism during the first day was a lunch stop at a grossly overpriced restaurant complex ( $28 CAD for a bowl of soup). Days 2 and 3 were just perfect. A special thanks to the tour guides, Lucia and Davide, very genuine, warm and knowledgable individuals with a wonderful sense of humour. It is so great that this tour has a maximum capacity of 15 people, making the travel logistics very simple. The ride was comfortable and the overnight stays were in a clean hostel where one could sample locallly prepared homemade soup ( at a very reasonable price;). The highlight for me was the glacier hike but truly, every stop made on this tour was beautiful so bring a camera!

  4. We visited some place all at once.the Golden circle ,Geysers, The Golden waterfall, Iceland’s south coast, volcanoes, waterfalls, black beach, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Vatnajokull…The scenery was magnificent.And, Paolo and Robert our guides were very accommodating and cheerful.Paolo and Robert , Thank you so much.This is the best tour I have ever attended.
