  • Tour Itinerary

    Day 1: Geology, history, Geysers and Waterfalls.

    Pick up between 8:15 and 8:45 at your accommodation. We leave the capital and drive towards Thingvellir National Park where we walk along the fault lines that make evident the rifting of the earth’s crust. We hear about the major historic events that have taken place here and come to understand why we are stood in a UNESCO world heritage site. We continue towards Geysir, witnessing its enormous eruptions before taking in the majestic Gullfoss waterfall. From there we drive along the scenic South coast for a night in a hotel near Kirkjubæjarklaustur.

    Day 2: Glaciers, Icebergs and Ice cave.

    Today we head further east, taking in the vast open sand plains and the mighty Vatnajökull ice cap in the distance. Vast alpine peaks perforate the background as we admire the wonders of the Glacier Lagoon (Jökulsárlón), complete with huge icebergs and sunbathing seals. A short walk away we walk along the Diamond Beach, named after its countless stranded Icebergs. In the afternoon we explore Skaftafell National Park and hike (1 hour) to the beautiful waterfall Svartifoss surrounded by basalt columns.

    Day 3: Black beaches, Waterfalls and glacier walking.

    On our journey back to Reykjavík we take time to stop and enjoy the picturesque landscape of the South Coast. We stroll along the black sand beaches of Vík and Reynisfjara, before donning crampons and hiking on the Sólheimajökull glacier. There will be time to take in the beautiful waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss before it is time to leave to wonders of the South coast and return to the trapping of the city.
