What to expect?

Day 1.

  • We will pick you up at your accommodation in the Reykjavík area.

  • We will start with the most popular tour in all of Iceland, the so-called "Golden Circle" tour.

  • Our first stop is "Þingvellir" or The Parliament Fields, a beautiful clear water lake surrounded by volcanoes, & our oldest national park. This is the place where you can witness the continental drift and get to know a lot about our Viking heritage. The second stop is the Geysir geothermal park with the very famous Geysir, the father of all hot springs with its nearby grandson "Strokkur" blowing 40 feet up in the air every 5 to 10 min. The third stop is the nearby "Gullfoss" the Golden Waterfall. A magnificent glacier river 100 feet tall waterfall. And finally, we stop at the second largest glacier "Langjökull" (1650m) where you get a glimpse of the extreme driving abilities of the super jeeps before we make our way to our accommodation in a country lodge for the night. After dark, we will start looking up, hoping to witness one of nature’s most spectacular wonders, the Northern Lights.

On one hand, there are the breathtaking & steep mountainsides carved out by the ocean during the ice age and the most famous volcano/glaciers "Katla" and "Eyjafjallajökull". On the other side is the wild North Atlantic Ocean with black sand beaches. After enjoying the waterfall "Seljalandfoss" we drive up to "Sólheimajökull" glacier outlet to enjoy a 1hr glacier walk and after a nice walk, we drive down to the beautiful black sand beaches, on our way back to Reykjavik we stop at "Skógar" waterfall for a chance of catching a glimpse of rainbows.
