What to expect?

All in one! - Three must-do tours all perfectly packaged in one!

This easy travel package is for those wanting to explore the best of Iceland while staying in Reykjavík. The package includes the must-do Golden Circle, which is comprised of three of Iceland´s most prized natural treasures. First there´s the powerful waters of a glacial river spectacularly cascading 32 meters into a steep canyon carved out millions of years ago in a massive glacial flood. Gullfoss Waterfall is so stunningly beautiful that Icelanders refer to it as the Queen of Icelandic waterfalls.

Next it´s on to Iceland´s only erupting hot spring or geyser, Strokkur, which spouts steam and hot water skywards every 7 minutes or so. Finally, we visit Þingvellir National Park where the early Viking settlers established their national assembly in 930 AD. This would be the first major step towards defining a nation. Þingvellir is where the heart of the Icelandic nation beats. It´s where every major event in Icelandic history has taken place and where the country declared its independence on June 17, 1944. When night falls we set off in search of the magical and mysterious Northern Lights.

On day two the South Coast awaits. Leaving Reykjavik we drive eastwards along the southern coastline and explore a volcanic and glacial wonderland. You get to walk behind the thundering veil of spray at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, take in the incredible views from the top of Skógafoss Waterfall and explore the Black Sand Beach at Reynisfjara before reaching our easternmost stop, the picturesque town of Vík.
