Pick up between 8:15 and 8:45 by your guide and driver at your accommodation. We leave the capital towards the National Park of Þingvellir. There we walk along the faults and fissures of the area that make evident the rifting of the earth's crust and hear about the major historic events that have taken place at this UNESCO world heritage site. We continue towards Geysir geothermal area and witness the spouting spring Strokkur that erupts up to 30 meters high and close by the majestic Gullfoss waterfall. From there we drive along the scenic south coast for overnight at Fosshótel Núpar, located in one of Iceland's most glorious landscapes. Surrounded by lava fields, it offers a spectacular view of Vatnajökull, the world‘s largest glacier outside the Arctic. Northern lights hunting in the evening if the weather permits.
Absolutely brilliant. Don't use any other tour guide or company, these guys are the best of the best. Our guide Sölvi was, as you can tell from the other glowing reviews, excellent to say the least. Icelandic Mountain Guides and Iceland Rovers were fantastic - personable, easy to deal with, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and just plain nice people. It made a huge difference on our trip, we're VERY glad we went with them!
