Tour Highlights

Experience an adventure like no other with this action-packed tour of the Golden Circle and Iceland’s stunning South Coast. Enjoy a thrilling river raft ride on the White River, take an unforgettable walk on a glacier, and gaze at the glittering Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach!

Take this fun-packed three-day adventure tour of Iceland’s most incredible sights and discover why this is the Land of Fire and Ice!

You’ll be thrilled by waterfalls, volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, black sand beaches, and icebergs the size of houses! As well as that, you’ll get the chance to get up close to these natural marvels, too! Just imagine what it’ll be like on a river raft ride on a meltwater river, walking across a gigantic glacier, and strolling on the famous Diamond Beach!

Only Iceland can offer you so many unforgettable experiences in just three days!

Your once-in-a-lifetime tour will start with a convenient pick-up in the capital, followed by a fun drive along the shore with views of the city and majestic Mount Esja to explore the Golden Circle. In no time at all, you’ll be enjoying the magnificent views of the colossal rift valley at Þingvellir National Park, the gorgeous gushers at Geysir, and the thundering cascade at Gullfoss. The first day will end with a thrilling river raft ride down the White River and an overnight stay at Hveragerði.

The second day sees you exploring Iceland’s stunning South Coast with stops at the wonderful waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, and Gljúfrabúi. The second day’s special treat is a glacier walk on Sólheimajökull, one of Iceland’s most beautiful rivers of ice. Then, after a stop at the famous black sand beach at Reynisfjara, we’ll stay overnight in a remote location in the country’s southeastern part.

The third day brings you to the world-famous Glacier Lagoon at Jökulsárlón. You’ll see ghostly icebergs floating serenely on their way to Diamond Beach, where glittering fragments of ice lie scattered on a black sand beach. On our way back to the city, there are more magical sights to look forward to, with photo stops at the turf-roofed church at Hofskirkja and the winding green canyons at Fjaðrárgljúfur. We’ll also stop for refreshments at Vík, Iceland’s southernmost village, before heading home! 

Day 1 | Golden Circle & Kerid Volcanic Crater

Your action-packed three-day adventure begins with a pick-up in the city from your accommodation or an agreed meeting point. Then we’ll whisk you off to the Golden Circle – Iceland´s most famous attraction, while you take in the views of Mount Esja and the city skyline along the way.

Thingvellir National Park

The first stop on the Golden Circle, Þingvellir, is a breathtaking spectacle where gigantic cracks in the Earth’s surface reveal the widening gap between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Enormous geological forces are pulling Iceland apart at the same speed as your fingernails are growing. That means you can walk in between two continents here! As well as the marvelous views, you will see where the early Viking settlers made their laws and celebrated summer festivals for a thousand years. Þingvellir is now a national shrine and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Geysir & Haukadalur Geothermal Area

The next stop on the Golden Circle is Geysir, the place that gave its name to all erupting hot springs. Geysir is mostly dormant now, but nearby Strokkur is very active.

Just wait a few minutes, and you’ll feel the earth tremble underneath your feet!  Then stand back and watch impressive fountains of superheated water shooting up to thirty meters high into the sky. You’ll get some incredible Instagram images here, but check the wind direction to avoid getting wet!

As you explore the Haukadalur Geothermal area, you’ll discover steaming mud pools and hissing hot pots wherever you look. The locals even bake their bread by burying dough in the ground and leaving it overnight!

Gullfoss - The Golden Waterfall

The third and final part of the Golden Circle is Gullfoss (the Golden Falls), a roaring two-tier waterfall that thunders its way into a steep canyon. With millions of gallons of glacial meltwater crashing down more than thirty meters, Gullfoss is a natural marvel at any time of the year.

There are several spots to get a great view of this magical waterfall, setting off countless rainbows when the sun shines, and just as stunning on snowy winter days too. Gullfoss narrowly survived conversion into a hydroelectric power plant a few decades ago and is now a protected national treasure.

White River Rafting Experience

Most visitors to the Golden Circle will return home after visiting Gullfoss. But our tour has something special for you! You’ll enjoy a close-up view of the canyon with a river rafting experience on the White River, starting just a short distance from Gullfoss.

We’ll take you down to the riverbank to get kitted out for an unforgettable raft ride downstream from the waterfall toward the coast, taking in the mesmerizing views of the Brúarhlöður Canyon. All the necessary safety equipment and expert guidance will be provided so you can soak up every moment of this thrilling experience.

This is a fantastic way to see Iceland from another perspective and to feel the power of Nature as you paddle downstream, surrounded by towering cliffs on glacial meltwaters.   

Hveragerði Geothermal Village

We’ll stay overnight in Hveragerði, which is located directly over a geothermal hotspot, heating gigantic greenhouses filled with flowers, bananas, tomatoes, and more. 

Some even call Hveragerði the “Flower Village” for that reason. Straddling the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, you’ll be able to see the split between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. That means there’s a lot of seismic activity here, and there’s even an earthquake simulator in the shopping mall!

You can also stand with one foot in each continent on either side of an illuminated line outside the supermarket! Several restaurants have a uniquely local focus, including one where the different courses are baked in an outdoor geothermal oven!

Day 2 | South Coast Waterfalls & Black Beach of Reynisfjara

Route

Your fun-packed adventure tour starts its second day with a scenic drive along the South Coast shore to Seljalandsfoss.

Seljalandsfoss & Gljufrabui Waterfalls

Here, you’ll see a beautiful ribbon of water plunge down from the Seljalandsá river more than 60 meters into a deep pool, and a large cave has been carved out behind the falls. 

It’s possible to get very close to this waterfall and walk around the falls if you don’t mind getting wet and scrambling along the slippery path!

Seljalandsfoss is powered by glacial meltwater from Eyjafjallajökull, the famous volcano that stopped air traffic for days when it erupted in 2010.  Now it features in pop music videos, TV shows, and films, so it’s a great place to snap some splendid pictures!

There’s another “hidden” waterfall here, which many people miss when visiting Seljalandsfoss – but we’ll show you where to find it! Just a short walk away from Seljalandsfoss, you’ll discover the entrance to a concealed cave – this is Gljúfrabúi!

You’ll need to hop over a few stepping stones to enter the gorgeous green canyon, but then you’ll be under a beautiful waterfall that tumbles into a pond right in front of you!

Skogafoss Waterfalls

Another incredible waterfall to enjoy at our next stop is called Skógafoss.  The name means “Forest Falls” but there aren’t many trees to be seen now after the Viking settlers chopped most of them down hundreds of years ago.

Skógafoss is one of the most recognizable waterfalls in the world, featured on “Game of Thrones” and in several Hollywood movies. From a height of 60 meters, the waters crash over the cliffs and produce sheets of spray and spectacular rainbows on sunny days.  You can even climb up some stairs to see the falls from on high too. 

Hike on top of the Sólheimajökull Glacier

You may wonder where all this water is coming from – our next stop will answer your questions! More than a tenth of Iceland lies under gigantic glaciers, immense rivers of ice, and ancient snow that reach down from the frozen Highlands. The Sólheimajökull glacier is an outlet glacier from the main ice cap here, called Mýrdalsjökul, and part of the Katla UNESCO GeoPark.

Climate change is shrinking Iceland’s glaciers now, so don’t miss this opportunity to see this natural wonder up close. We’ll kit you out with all the necessary safety equipment, including crampons, ropes, and helmets. Then, expert guides will show you the secrets of the glacier, like crevasses and other unique ice formations.

Reynisfjara - The Black Beach

The second day ends with a trip to one of the most picturesque beaches you’ll ever see – the black sand beach at Reynisfjara. National Geographic named it one of their favorite non-tropical beaches. Dark volcanic sands stretch for miles, and incredible hexagonal basalt columns line the cliffs.

Look out to sea for a view of the stunning stone sea stacks of the Reynisdrangar, a series of volcanic rock formations that some say are giant trolls frozen in time forever. Far off in the distance, you’ll see the rock arches at Dyrhólaey, carved by the mighty Atlantic waves that crash ashore here. Watch out for the “sneaker waves” and listen to your guide before walking on the beach!

We’ll stay overnight in a remote location in the southeastern corner of Iceland.

OVERNIGHT STAY ON THE COUNTRYSIDE

You will stay in a cozy country hotel located just few kilometres away from the Glacier Lagoon

Day 3 | Glacier Lagoon & Fjaðrárgljúfur River Canyon

Route

The third day of your South Coast adventure takes you to the foothills of Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland, which covers 8% of the island. The treasures of this region of Iceland include the world-famous Glacier Lagoon at Jökulsárlón, where you can see immense icebergs floating serenely around a dazzling lagoon.

Diamond Beach

You’ll will start the day by discovering Diamond Beach, where fragments of these icebergs lie scattered on a black sand beach.

Formed only a few decades ago, the Glacier Lagoon is an enormous lake close to the sea where gigantic icebergs break away from the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier.

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón is the deepest lake in Iceland and was created when a glacier retreated away from the sea, with the space left behind being filled with freezing meltwater and ghostly icebergs. It’s a spectacular sight, and Jökulsárlón has been featured in several Hollywood films, including Batman and James Bond!

If you want a closer look, you can book an optional amphibious vehicle journey around the lagoon, allowing you to see these natural marvels from just a few feet away!The bergs can float around here for years, slowly sculpted into fantastic shapes by the wind and the tide, before finally escaping to the sea.

After exploring this magnificent location, it’ll be time to return to Reykjavík, but there’ll be more treats to enjoy on the journey home!

Hofskirkja Church & Lava Fields

Iceland is famous for its turf-roofed buildings, a reminder of ancient times when this technique was used to keep people warm in the winter.

We’ll visit Hofskirkja for a photo stop, where you’ll see one of the last turf-roofed churches built in Iceland in the 19th century. Layers of green turf form the roof of this fairytale church, surrounded by moss-covered burial mounds, which seem to be melting into the landscape around it. 

The church was restored in the 1950s, and it’s a working church used by the locals, so this will be a quick stop for a photograph or two. 

Fjaðrárgljúfur River Canyon

The “Feather Canyon” is an astonishing sight as we return along the South Coast.  Hidden away a couple of kilometers from the Ring Road, this gorgeous green moss-covered canyon is a hundred meters deep and almost a kilometer long.

It became internationally known after Justin Bieber filmed one of his music videos here, so you might recognize it! The canyon was formed during the last Ice Age, leaving a snaking river behind when the ice sheet retreated

Vik Village

Before we return to the city, we’ll stop for refreshments at Vík, the southernmost point in Iceland. As well as lots of shops, restaurants and souvenir shops, you’ll see a fairytale church overlooking the village, with amazing views of the Reynisdrangar.

We’ll whisk you back to the capital along the picturesque Ring Road. So sit back, enjoy the view, and remember all the amazing sights you’ve seen on your 3-day adventure on Iceland’s South Coast!

Yes. We monitor the weather and road conditions on the tour route to maximize your chance to see Iceland’s attractions at their best.

That means we may change the order or timing of the stops to take advantage of the weather (avoiding rain or snow showers where possible) and “golden hour” photo opportunities.

If we receive a weather alert from the Icelandic Meteorological Office or roads are closed by the local authorities, we must cancel tours for your safety.

Iceland’s weather is very changeable, meaning changes may occur quickly. If we have to cancel tours, we will send you an email notification immediately.

So please check your email inbox before heading out to the collection point, particularly if the weather looks bad in the city.

Sometimes the weather is worse outside the city, or vice versa!

On average, we will cover 200-300 kilometers each day, with four to five hours of driving.

We schedule our tours as evenly as possible, with driving distances between each stop varying from 45 minutes to a couple of hours.

You’ll have around 30 to 60 minutes to explore each location, with most attractions just a short walk from the parking lot.

GEYSIR (GOLDEN CIRCLE)
GEOTHERMAL PARK (HVERAGERÐI)

Iceland is a country filled with incredible water features, including hot springs, waterfalls, and glacial rivers. But did you know that the word “geyser” comes from here? On our Golden Circle tours, you’ll see the “OG” of geysers everywhere at the Haukadalur Geothermal area. While Geysir has fallen silent recently, nearby Strokkur erupts in steam explosions and spray every few minutes, sending superheated water flying high into the sky. Geysir means “gush” in Icelandic, and that’s where the name comes from! If you book a package with stay in Hveragerði you can also admire smaller cousin of Strokkur that erupts every 15-20 minutes.

GEYSIR

Iceland’s fierce volcanic activity fuels gushing geysers all around the country, and the most famous hot spring is Geysir, one of the highlights of our Golden Circle tours. Geysir was the first erupting hot spring discovered by Europeans, and its name is the Icelandic word for “gush”, giving its name to all hot springs worldwide. Geysir is quiet these days, but Strokkur sends hot water and vapor high into the sky every few minutes! You won’t have to wait long to see it blow sky-high. So get your camera ready – this will be one of the best photo opportunities you’ll have in Iceland!

One of the highlights of the famous Golden Circle route, Gullfoss is a thundering two-tier waterfall fueled by Langjökull, the “Long Glacier”, which you’ll see far inland if it’s a clear day. Tumbling more than thirty meters into a dramatic rock canyon, Gullfoss is one of the most thrilling waterfalls in the country, and you can see the falls from several viewing platforms. Watch out for rainbows on sunny days, and wear waterproofs – millions of gallons of water crashing over the cascade creates lots of spray!

Traditional Icelandic architecture is characterized by its simplicity, functionality, and integration with the natural environment. During our tours you will be able to see couple of its examples. 

Eiriksstadir is a reconstructed Viking-era longhouse in Iceland, which provides a glimpse into the architectural style of the early settlers. Hlíðartúnshúsin (located in Borgarnes) is a collection of several turf houses that were first built more than a hundred years ago. You’ll see a sheep barn, a cowshed, and even a hut used to store potatoes!

Iceland is also famous for turf-roofed churches, such as the iconic Viðimýrarkirkja and Hofskirkja, showcasing the continuation of this architectural tradition into religious buildings.

Even though it’s very close to the Arctic Circle, the 20,000 people who call Akureyri their home enjoy some of the country’s warmest and most stable weather.

As you walk the streets of Akureyri, make sure you take a look at the traffic lights. All the red lights are heart-shaped!

Sólheimajökull is a magnificent glacier located on the South Coast of Iceland. It is an outlet glacier that descends from the larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. Sólheimajökull is famous for its breathtaking ice formations, including deep crevasses, ice caves, and dramatic ice ridges. 

The glacial environment of Sólheimajökull provides a unique opportunity to witness the effects of climate change, as the glacier has been receding in recent years. This caused new Glacial Lagoon to appear on the map of Iceland, where huge chunks of ice slowly float on its surface.
