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
During this guided 3-day Small Group Tour you will travel across the most popular region of Iceland - South Coast.
The tour starts with classic Golden Circle Route that includes Thingvellir National Park, Geysirs and Gullfoss waterfall and we add a visit to the unique Kerid Volcanic Crater. For the next two days you will also visit magical waterfalls, the Black Beach of Reynisfjara, and the stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where huge icebergs float in ice cold water and seals swim around them next to the Diamond Beach just to name a few.
During the booking process you can add additional experiences to this trip to make the most of your travel - amphibian boat tour among floating icebergs at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and 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 from the Glacier is 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 for this unique tour.
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 the South Region. Standard of accommodation is to be chosen during booking process
We start with visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as visiting lesser known, more secret waterfalls Glufrabui and Irafoss. We make a stop where guests can buy lunch.
As we continue we will drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap, where you can 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 on the South Coast
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 one of the most recognizable canyon in Iceland – Fjaðrárgljúfur, that got international attention after being featured in the music video of one of the Canadian singers. 2-kilometers long, 100 meters deep ancient canyon with quite a unique serpent-like shape is on the bucket list of many visitors and locals alike. Please note, that due to fragile vegetation it might happen that canyon will not be accessible during your tour. If that happens we will arrange another amazing sightseeing spot in this area, that is full of charming creeks and falls. Then it is onto 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 Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you can take a boat tour (bookable as an extra), sailing on the lagoon. The lagoon is full of huge chunks of ice which crack off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand beach, called Diamond Beach, 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 (09:15pm).

First off, I highly recommend Nice Travel. I was a solo traveler, and it was hassle-free because of the Nice Travel team. The tour guides were really professional and were very helpful from pick ups to drop offs and coordination in between trips. I would highly recommend Nice Travel for all types of traveler may it be with your family, friends or just by yourself.

We had an absolutely amazing time on this small group tour of the South coast with Nice travel. Our guide Arnar was the best and we really enjoyed the tour with him as a guide. Our first day at the Golden Circle had rough weather conditions but Arnar still managed to take us to all the places and also a few bonus stops. We loved our stay at the nice hostel for 2 nights. The pace of our tour was very good. We always got enough time at each of the spots plus a few bonus additions. We normally don't do group tours but this tour was very well organised. The South Coast was so beautiful and all our activities like glacier hiking and boating in the glacier lagoon were thrilling. The communication was top notch. We are so happy we choose Nice travel for this and happy we got Arnar as our guide. Will definitely recommend Nice travel if you are visiting Iceland!
Thank you for an amazing experience! Everything was very professional and hospitable. The sites are absolutely breathtaking. Our driver/tour guide- Ari- was very friendly and accommodating (with a great soundtrack for the drives). The food exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend
We did 3 day tour. All the tour guides/drivers and NiceHostel staff are excellent. Nicole, Peter, Pormodur are very funny, nice and professional.

We did this 3 day tour with nice travel. overall experience was great. Although the weather was not ideal, the guide went all the way to make it an enjoyable tour. The hostel we stayed for 2 nights was in a very serene place. We liked it. The breakfast provided was also good. We do recommend this tour.
Nice Travel给了我们非常非常优质的旅行体验。行程、住宿、向导和司机都非常的棒。向导与我们一直保持着非常好的沟通，也很周到的帮助我们。我们的三日游是由黄金圈一日游和另外一个二日游组成，一日游人数比较多，大家都很守时并且很友好。第一天结束后Peter将我们送到住处，是一位非常友善可爱的司机。晚上的住宿在NiceHostel 一个瀑布下的小屋，干净温馨，前台的工作人员非常热情友好。有免费的早饭，非常好吃。二日游的向导非常的棒！他给我们可靠的感觉，也非常辛苦，全程要驾车还要持续的为我们讲解，在徒步的时候给我们非常充分的帮助和介绍！！我们的团一共七人，有一对可爱的母女，两位中国的朋友，还有一个可爱的韩国女孩，大家相处的超级好，都特别守时，还互相帮着拍照！路上突然看到了彩虹，司机还停车让我们拍照！！最后把我们每个人送到了酒店和车站！特别好！！冰河湖的游船向导也非常棒！能感受到每一位工作人员对自己国家的风景和一草一木的热爱！ 非常满意！！简直是我最好的旅行跟团体验！ Everything is great! Every staff member of Nice Travel was friendly and thoughtful!
A great intro to our 12 day adventure in Iceland. Cristina was the amazing guide - striking the perfect balance between information, unhurried site visits, entertainment and respite. She even dropped us at our AirBnB in Reykjavik. We'll recommend this tour to all our friends
Great itinerary with excellent service from the office staff Tryggvi and the tour guide David. Tryggvi had been providing prompt and detailed information about the tour. He had answered all our questions and confirmed everything for us before the tour started. David was a 10+ tour guide, not only doing the standard itinerary professionally but also added a few extra points of interests for our tour. He re-arranged the itinerary perfectly to avoid the bad weather. We had learned a lot about Iceland, volcanoes, glaciers, lave rocks and moss, etc from him. Everyone in our group have had an excellent time. We highly recommend joining this tour.
Everything was perfect and as planned. Our guides/drivers and NiceHostel stuff were the best, really kind, funny and professional, and the landscapes were really amazing. I'd love to repeat!
가이드분들이 친절하시고 설명도 너무 잘해주셔서 좋앗습니다.전반적으로 여행도 잘짜여져 잇고 숙소도 생각보다 너무 깔끔햇고 조식도 괜찮앗고 공동화장실을 쓰는 경우는 처음이엇는데 나쁘지 않앗음. 한가지 힘들엇던건 비도 계속오고 폭포보면서 방수복을 입엇음에도 정말 다 젖어서 추운데 투어버스에서 에어컨까지...여름이엇지만 젖은 상태서 에어컨 바람은 견디기 힘들엇음.. 알찬 여행이엇구 직원분들도 좋앗고 숙소도 좋앗음.
This tour was amazing - really well organised and covered all the main sights you should see in Iceland in 3 days!! The tour guides were all really friendly, informative and spoke good English. The guide I had for the majority of the tour, Marek, was great fun. The glacier hike, black sands beach and lagoon boat ride were particular highlights for me. The guesthouse you stay at during the 2 nights was really lovely. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone - I travelled solo and still loved it!!
We had a wonderful time during this tour. We saw so much,the golden circle area and pretty much the whole south coast. The glacier hike was a lot of fun, and the last day on the boat close enough to touch icebergs might have been our favorite! We were a total of 8 to 10 people so it felt very private, and our driver, Mika, was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We were at first a bit nervous about staying in a hostel (we hadn't done that in years) but our fears were quickly put to rest. The owners/managers of the hostel were some of the kindest people we encountered. The rooms were simple but very clean, and the communal area was a good spot to share our experiences with other travelers. Our son is going to Iceland soon and he already booked the same tour! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
I highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the major sights in Iceland on the South Coast and Golden Circle! This trip is perfect for solo backpackers or adventurous groups! The guides are very informative and welcoming. This trip was amazing, wish I could do it again :)
This 3-day tour from NiceTravel is wonderful and has satisfied almost all my expectaions to the south of Iceland. The tour guides are all very kind. In particular, Guide Skuli is very nice, considerate, and has given us a fantastic guide.
The tour guide Mr Eddie was a very passionate to his profession and he gave us a very clear explanations and deep understanding on the geographical movement on this nature creation.
One of the best memories in Europe. Here I would like to acknowledges the guides and drives from NiceTravel. There are four guides during the whole journey and everyone of them is nice, professional and responsible. The bus is comfortable and the whole journey is perfect. The driving time of the third day is relatively long. Maybe it would be better if we make some modifications of the schedule of the last two days.
Wonderful tour guides, great guesthouse in Nice Hostel. Will definitely go with Nice travel in the future.
This was a great way to get an overview of Iceland's many natural wonders in a few days. All of our guides -- Addi, Artni, Jaka, were knowledgeable and approachable. Lucia made us feel very welcome at the guesthouse. We were a but concerned about the glacier hike, but Jaka did a great job of watching out for us and making sure we were safe.
My husband and I truly enjoyed this 3 day guided tour of Iceland. We enjoyed our fellow travelers from Australia, China, and Japan. Our guide did a fantastic job guiding, leading the glacier hike and driving! He shared a lot of information about Iceland and area highlights.. Guest house was clean and comfortable. Very welcoming. I brought flip flops to wear indoors. We were so happy to see so many of the highlights of Iceland. Boat trip and glacier walk were special. Great value!
This tour was simply amazing! Thanks to our brilliant guides Lucia and David who made the trip one unique experience, we had the most wunderful time ever! The two were very professional, we felt safe at all times , and they had an answer to every question, no matter if geological phenomenons or trolls and elfs were involved! David was a very secure driver and Lucia answered all the questions and gave us an insight into Iceland's history. They were a good team who work hand in hand always with a smile on their faces and created a welcoming atmosphere. The 3day tour was perfect because it covered most sights in the south and some very special events such as the glacier hike or the boat trip on the glacier lagoon were even included. The guesthouse was clean and cosy and offered an amazing breakfast which even had lots of vegetarian and vegan options. My special thanks goes to Peter who acted immediately and quickly when I had a special request! Thanks very much, Peter, you were a life saver! Great to meeting you all, Vera&Natalie
This is an amazing tour and it was mostly due to Davide and Lucia! They are very knowledgeable and fun tour guides. The time spent at each destination is just right and they took care to ensure everybody was safe and accounted for at all times. I highly recommend this tour if you have three days to spend in Iceland!
My wife and I had a wonderful time. The tour was organized well, we always had enough time to see the amazing sights. The landscape of Iceland is breathtaking and was made truly special by our tour guides, Lucia and Davide. Both are genuine, knowledgable and warm people whose energy is containgious. The overnight stays were in a very nice hostel with good food and a pleasant staff. It is hard to pick a single highlight. The glacier hike and waterfalls will amaze you. Bring a camera and a water proof jacket!
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!
Iceland Review - Nice Travel - August 2017 WOW, what an amazing tour! (Despite the challenging weather) .... Day 1 starting from Reykjavik takes you to all the standard Golden Circle places, including a walk through the American and European/Asian tectonic plates in the ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â¾ingvellir National Park, the iconic Gullfoss waterfall; the Geysir Geothermal Areais (home to the rare and spectacular phenomenon of geysers; and last but not least, KeriÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â° - the volcanic crater lake. It's not that these aren't interesting, they are, but the route is covered by all the tour operators so plenty of tourists! Its the next two days that really bring the tour to life! Day 2 is full-on, an activity packed day hiking, climbing under, in, and above amazing waterfalls (getting drenched), stunning scenery (despite the weather), climbing a glacier, and finishing with a black beach with basalt columns which were the inspiration for Reykjavic's Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral. Day 3 is a long driving day today but worth it to get to south east Iceland. Heading to The Glacier Lagoon & a fabulous amphibian boat tour (where we sampled a piece of 1,000 year old ice), we had a great history lesson, visited the cloud-like lava fields, drove around the base of VatnajÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¶kull (Iceland largest glacier @ 10% of the country's surface), & walked the black beach - anyone fancy swimming at a beach where the shore is covered with huge chunks of ice broken off the glacier? On the return journey we hiked up a trail of the glacier in the Skaftagell National park before stopping off in the pretty little village of Vik. This is a fabulous 3 day tour that makes you feel like you've been away for a week - thank you Iceland &, in particular, Lucia and David of Nice Travel tours, Lucia was a mindful of knowledge and David's driving was great. The history and scenery were amazing but these two made it enjoyable and so much more. If your contemplating this tour, go for it, absolutely worth it!
This was an amazing Trip! Our driver, Valli, was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We loved him! We had just enough time at each stop to really take everything in felt like we go to see so much. The guest house was very clean, including the bathrooms! The rooms were quiet when it was time to sleep. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and the food was tasty. If you're debating whether to do a 3-day versus several 1-day trips, I highly recommend the 3-day. Everyone we spoke with who did the 1-day said they didn't get to see and do as much as we did.
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.
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!
I can highly recommend this trip: - Owing that Iceland is one of the most expensive place on Earth this 3 days event really does represent good value, - All guides/drivers are very professional, well-mannered and on-time, - Food/meal stops are very adequate and also presenting good value and quality, - Two nights you will spent in very cosy hostel/guest-house in Seljaland. Few tips: ask your driver to give you some time in the grocery (Bonus is the best). Buy there a beer or other drinks as they only serve Lamb Soup (delicious) costing 1000IKR and some pizzas. Take some slippers or something, as there is ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œwe leave shoes at the doorÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â policy there. Accommodation is really good with nice people and cool welcome cake each evening, - I am sure that in case we had a car and tried touring on our own, we would missed most the places we visited with the guys from Nice Travel.
