This 3 day experience will take you to the most famous and picturesque part of Iceland. You will head to the famous Golden Circle, a stunning glacier lagoon and the spectacular Diamond beach during Iceland's long, bright days in spring, summer and fall.

What to expect?

Enjoy a combination of history and nature on this 3-day short break to some of the best sites in the South Coast of Iceland. Travel along the famous Golden Circle to visit Thingvellir National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site, and marvel at the natural wonders of Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir, a geyser that shoots boiling hot water into the air.

After an evening of rest in Kirkjubæjarklaustur, you will witness the beauty of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, take a short walk on Diamond Beach and hike to the marvellous Svartifoss waterfall in Skaftafell.

As you head back to Reykjavík on the last day, you will stop to enjoy walks on the black sand beaches of Vík and Reynisfjara and enjoy a fun Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull glacier.

You will top off the day by visiting the majestic Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls before heading back to Reykjavík.
