This four-day tour of Iceland takes in the very best of the countries highlights and hidden gems including Sólheimajökull glacier, the Golden Circle, and Gullfoss Waterfall. Get ready for snowmobiling on Iceland’s second largest glacier, snorkeling between the tectonic plates at Silfra, and hiking on a glacier!

What to expect?

South Coast Sightseeing and Glacier Hiking

  • On the way to Sólheimajökull glacier, you will travel along the scenic south coast with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and mountains, glaciers and breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls on the other. You will see Seljalandsfoss, the incredible waterfall where you can walk behind the tumbling cascade. You will visit the stunning black beach, Reynisfjara, famous for its amazing black basalt cliff formations, and Skógafoss, a very beautiful waterfall.

Glacier Hiking

  • Your certified glacier guide will equip you with ice crampons then escort you onto Sólheimajökull, a majestic outlet glacier of the mighty Vatnajökull. Discovering this rugged, raw and constantly evolving frozen wonderland, you will see and learn all about the dramatic sinkholes, crevasses and really jagged ice ridges which make this glacier such an exciting and vibrant place. Hiking on the glacier will leave you with memories to treasure forever.

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon

  • There are three parts to the Golden Circle: Geysir, home to the famous hot spring which gave us the English word ‘Geyser’, see torrents of boiling water being erupted 25 m or higher! The geologically amazing, Þingvellir National Park, has the Mid-Atlantic Ridge running through it, right where Iceland´s historic parliament, Alþingi, one of the oldest parliaments in the world, was founded in 930 CE. Þingvellir is a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site. Finally, Gullfoss waterfall, (the Golden Falls), feel the spray in the air and the sheer power of nature as the roaring water forces its way through the rugged falls, dropping 32 m in two stages.

The Secret Lagoon

  • This geothermal bathing pool is situated in the picturesque area of Flúðir, a hot spring geothermal paradise. The lagoon is in wonderful surroundings and it is a perfect temperature for bathing. There are seating areas, walking paths and a geyser in the area around the pool. This is the perfect place to enjoy hot spring bathing out in unspoiled Icelandic nature. Showers, comfortable changing rooms and a bar offering drinks and snacks are available.

Snorkelling in Silfra

  • The exceptionally clear water within the Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park is just one reason why this is a world famous dive. You will actually be diving in the fissure between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates with the most incredible and varied underwater scenery. Silfra at Þingvellir is the only place in the world where you can do this. Our good quality drysuit will keep you warm! Difficulty level: Moderate, everything else on this package tour is easy.

Snowmobiling on Langjokull Glacier

  • Snowmobiling on a glacier is one of the most exhilarating and glorious experiences to be had in Iceland. You are driven in an all-terrain Super Jeep to our Langjökull snowmobile base, get your snowmobiling gear, a few driving instructions and you are off skimming over the great white world of Landjökull (the Long Glacier). A magical hour on the ice – there is nothing more special than snowmobiling through fresh snow – you will feel as though you are gliding across the roof of the world!
