Get ready for an unforgettable journey as we pick you up and embark on a scenic drive along the renowned Ring Road, immersing ourselves in the picturesque farm country of the South Coast.

Your first day is filled with awe-inspiring waterfalls, including the majestic Seljalandsfoss and nearby hidden gem of Gljúfrabúi with its cascading waters falling into a cave. And let’s not forget the iconic Skógafoss, a towering waterfall that commands attention with its impressive 60-meter drop. Feel the mist on your face and witness the sheer power of nature as the water crashes down, creating a breathtaking sight that will forever be etched in your memory. Get ready to be swept away by the sheer magnificence of these remarkable waterfalls on your first day of adventure.

After a delightful lunch break, we’ll arrive at the world-famous Black Sand Beach of Reynisfjara, a stunning yet potentially dangerous location. Our experienced guides will provide instructions to ensure your safety while enjoying the breathtaking views.

Before reaching our accommodation for the night, we’ll make a stop at Vík Village, where you can stock up for the bus ride through the moon-like wastelands towards South-East Iceland, where your next day of adventure awaits.

OVERNIGHT STAY ON THE COUNTRYSIDE

If we are lucky with the weather and if the aurora is active, we will make the best use of the low light pollution in this area to try to see them. Remember though – the Northern Lights are not “switched on” every day!

Prepare to be amazed by the grandeur of Vatnajokull National Park, the largest of its kind in Iceland! Named after the mighty Vatnajokull glacier, the largest glacier cap in Europe, spanning approximately 8,000 square kilometers (5,500 square miles) and reaching depths of nearly 1,000 meters at its lowest point.

At the glacier’s head, you’ll find the mesmerizing Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Witness as colossal, multi-colored icebergs break away from the glacier and slowly make their way to the sea, constantly changing in shape and size as they sway back and forth. Some of these ice chunks are carried back to shore, adorning the black sand beach known as Diamond Beach.

But this tour offers more than just admiration of the glacier and its unique landscapes – you’ll also have the opportunity to venture beneath it! Each winter, frozen glacial rivers allow access to a captivating world of ice caves, with new formations taking shape each year. Marvel at the fantastic shapes and colors within these blue ice caves, guided by our knowledgeable local guides. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as each cave is transient and may never exist again. Your safety is our priority, and you’ll be provided with all the necessary equipment as you travel to the caves in a super jeep.

Before reaching your accommodation, we’ll make a stop at the charming Hofskirkja Turf Roofed Church, followed by another visit to Vík, before continuing on the road towards your overnight stay.

Explore this remarkable site and discover the natural amphitheater that served as the setting for sessions of Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament, for centuries.

Continuing our adventure, we arrive at Deildartunguhver, a true natural wonder and Europe’s most powerful hot springs. Witness the incredible force of nature as over 180 liters of boiling water per second gush forth, creating a mesmerizing display of steam and energy.

Prepare to be awe-struck as we journey to Hraunfossar, a breathtaking series of waterfalls that flow gracefully over the Hallmundarhraun lava field. The name Hraunfossar, meaning “Lava Waterfalls,” perfectly captures the essence of this natural wonder. Marvel at the crystal-clear glacial meltwater as it cascades down, creating a mesmerizing contrast against the dark lava rocks. As we continue our exploration, we come across Barnafoss, also known as “the waterfall of the children.” This enchanting waterfall holds a tragic tale from the past that our guide will surely tell you about.

The highlight of our tour awaits as we venture into the magnificent Viðgelmir Lava Cave.

You can also find answers to FAQ below

When you complete your booking, you’ll be asked to choose a pick up and drop off location. Where possible, we will collect you directly from your hotel.

Some parts of the city have traffic restrictions, so you’ll need to go to a designated bus stop for collection instead if your hotel is in that area.

This link will tell you which bus stop is closest to your accommodation.

There’s a 30-minute window for collection while we pick up other passengers from their locations.

At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off at the same place unless you choose to get off at another stop instead – that’s your choice! Drop off can also take up to 30 minutes.

Iceland’s weather is famously unpredictable, so you’ll need to prepare appropriately, whatever the time of year for your tour.

That means choosing the right clothes (light layers), shoes (sturdy and waterproof) and coats (windproof & waterproof). And not wearing jeans, just in case it rains!

We’ve prepared a detailed guide for you to read, full of tips and tricks to help you know what to wear, what to bring and what to leave behind! 

If you’re booking a multi-day tour of up to three days, the maximum “carry-on” bag size is 22 inches (56 x 45 x 25 cm or 22 x 18 x 10 inches)

If your multi-day tour is longer than three days, then your ticket includes “carry-on” (see above) and 24 inch “checked” baggage sized no bigger than 60 x 41 x 23 cm (24 x 16.4 x 9.2 inches)

For shorter tours, you can choose to add “checked” baggage for an additional fee during the booking process.

Outside the capital, most Icelandic hotels are comfortable and unfussy, with friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff.

Enjoy the scenery while relaxing at the end of each day!

Hotel rooms are sold based on two adults sharing, so single-room occupancy is more expensive as a result.

If you are a solo traveler, we will not assign you a room with a stranger, so the single supplement fee becomes applicable.

If you are two people traveling together and staying in the same room but paying separately, the single supplement fee is not applicable.

Simply add the name of your travel companion in the “special requirements” section when completing your booking.

For couples or groups traveling together, rooms will be assigned according to the number of people who have booked together.

Depending on availability at each location, you may request twin beds if that is your preference.

Larger groups will be accommodated in combinations of triple, double and twin rooms – three people in a triple room, four people in two doubles or twin rooms, five people in one triple and one double, and so on.

If a person in your group would prefer a single room, you must select “single supplement fee” for them when booking.

Solo travelers must pay a single supplement fee in all instances.

Breakfast is included at each overnight location, featuring bread and butter, preserves, boiled eggs, cooked meats, fruits, yoghurts, tea, and coffee.

All other meals are at your own expense.

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.

Everyone who comes to Iceland in the winter hopes to see the Northern Lights.

This mesmerizing cosmic spectacle is a bucket-list experience, with magical splashes of multi-colored lights dancing across the heavens.

But it’s important to remember that it’s a natural phenomenon, requiring certain levels of solar activity and clear, dark skies.

That means there’s no guarantee that you’ll be lucky enough to see them while you’re in Iceland. 

Our selected hotels are in the remote Icelandic countryside, ideal for spotting the Aurora Borealis, with far less artificial light than in the city.

Wake-up calls can be requested if the Northern Lights are spotted later at night.

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