    Itinerary

    Day 1 - The Golden Circle

    Marvel at the wonders of the Golden Circle starting with Þingvellir National Park, a site located between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. You may choose to visit Silfra, a site filled with crystal clear glacial water which makes it a popular snorkelling and diving site. Head next to Geysir geothermal area where the impressive Strokkur geyser erupts every five to ten minutes, creating a water column that can reach heights of up to 40m!

    Then visit Gullfoss Waterfall, one of the most iconic falls in Iceland. During the booking process, you can add on a tour to Langjökull glacier, which feeds the waterfall Gullfoss. There, you'll hop on a snowmobile and race across the white expanse of the glacier.

    After this amazing trip, you'll return to the city to unwind and spend another night at your Reykjavík accommodation. As you head in for the night, keep an eye on the skies for the Northern Lights.

    Day 2 - The South Coast and glacier hiking

    Behold the Seljalandsfoss, a stunning high and narrow waterfall where you can actually walk behind the waterfall and enjoy the view. Head next to Skógafoss, yet another impressive waterfall which is bigger than Seljalandsfoss and is the last in a long row of impressive waterfalls that cascade down from the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

    Make your journey towards Vik where you make a stop at the imposing black sand beach of Reynisfjara and enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic ocean. Finally, you'll arrive at the stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Spend the evening in the shadow of the great Vatnajökull glacier. Consider a short stop in the village of Vik. You will spend the night in the Jökulsárlón area.

    Day 3- The ice caves and return to Reykjavík

    Kick start your day with a natural glacier ice cave exploration! You'll be driven to the cave on a modified super truck along with an expert local glacier guide, enjoying an adventurous trip over the harsh terrain. You'll spend considerable time minutes within the ice cave so make sure that you dress warmly! After the adventurous expedition, head back to Reykjavík where arrive in the city in time for a late dinner, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the famous Reykjavík nightlife.

Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm. Minimum age required to undertake this tour is 8 years.

    Due to increased demand for travel services in Iceland and low availability, travel companies in Iceland can not guarantee specific accommodations. However, we can always provide you with the best available accommodation at the time of your booking.

    The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and therefore cannot be guaranteed, but this itinerary is designed to maximise your chances to see them if weather allows.

    It can happen, in the case of extreme weather, that an activity is cancelled. If your chosen activity is cancelled, we will assist you with rearranging or booking other activities when possible, and any potential price difference will be refunded to you.

    Icelandic roads and pavements can be slippery in the wintertime. We recommend you bring shoes with slip-resistant soles or ice-grip shoe covers. The covers can be purchased in most supermarkets and gas stations around the country.

    For your convenience, it is recommended that you pack lightly for this tour. If you wish to repack to a smaller suitcase or backpack before your journey, a luggage storage will be available to you.
