For all our combined tours it is necessary to arrive in Iceland at least one day before tour departure as it is always early in the morning. We recommend booking airport transfer here. Keep in mind that each trip ends in Reykjavík again, so you go on five separate tours, with five separate guides.


Tour Description

South Coast Sightseeing & Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Difficulty level: Easy

This trip will take you on a journey to the gorgeous southern coast of Iceland, stopping at iconic places like the majestic waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss along with the coal-black Reynisfjara beach.

We will also visit, Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in the entire of Europe, which covers over 8100 km2 and has around 30 outlet glaciers. Vatnajökull National Park, founded in 2008, is now the largest protected area in Europe, incorporating the Skaftafell National Park and Jökulsárgljúfur Nature Reserve. It is famous for its many natural wonders, including mammoth glacial rivers, vast canyons, majestic glacial lagoons and stunning waterfalls. However, it is the iconic glacial lagoon of Jökulsárlón that really stands out in this magnificent place, a turquoise lagoon, dotted with diamond-like icebergs, which are jaw-droppingly beautiful. This combined with the coal-black sands of the diamond beach, where diamond-like icebergs shimmer in the sun, makes it truly one of the most incredible places on earth.

Golden Circle Sightseeing & River Rafting

Difficulty level: Easy

There are three parts to the iconic Golden Circle tour: the geothermal area known as Geysir, famous for its many hot springs, which fire torrents of bubbling water up to 25 meters into the air. The historic and geologically significant Thingvellir National Park, which bisects two continents and is home to Althingi, site of the oldest continuously running parliament, founded in 930 AD and the majestic Gullfoss (the golden waterfall), where a cascading stream of water, crashes over a chasm in an idyllic setting.

Following that, we will head to our rafting base camp, in Drumboddstaðir, the starting point of our rafting adventure down the Hvita River (White River). It combines adrenaline-pumping, white-crested rapids, with gorgeous natural scenery, to create the perfect package. One of the highlights is the majestic Brúarhlöð Canyon, where you can cast yourself off the cliff into the teaming waters below. Safety is of paramount importance on all of our tours, and we provide all the necessary equipment alongside, professionally trained staff to ensure that you are safe at all times.

Whale Watching & A visit to the Blue Lagoon

Hellisheidavirkjun Geothermal Exhibion

After collection in Reykjavik we drive south and start our day at Hellisheidavirkjun Exhibition at the Geothermal power plant. It‘s the third largest geothermal power station in the world. The exhibition is fun and modern, where they show geological, technical and historical facts in an informative and entertaining way.

Kerið and Faxi

Second stop is the volcanic crater Kerið, a collapsed magma chamber with a little lake in it, beautiful to see. It has also served as a concert venue. On our way to the Golden Circle we do a little warm up visiting Faxi waterfall. It‘s located at the Tungufljot river and is very pretty.

Gullfoss and Geysir

Arriving at Gullfoss, one of this day‘s highlights, we‘ll be inspired by it‘s power getting so close to it, we feel the mist of the waterfall. We‘ll have lunch and go to Geysir hot spring area. There are many, many hot springs, including Geysir, the „parent“ of all geysers and Strokkur who erupts every 5 – 10 minutes.

Efstidalur and Laugarvatn

We‘ll make two stops before we go to the National Park Thingvellir. First we‘ll get to taste homemade ice cream from the family farm Efstidalur and than we visit Laugarvatn Lake, a small village built on geothermal springs.

Thingvellir

Thingvellir is very important for Icelanders, both historically and geologically. Here Althingi (the Icelandic parliament) was formed in 930 AD making it the oldest parliamentary site in the world. The Eurasian and American tectonic plates meet here as well. Thingvellir have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Returning back to the Reykjavik accommodation you will be there in about 8 hours.

Whale Watching & A visit to the Blue Lagoon

Difficulty level: Easy

This consists of two contrasting activities, beginning with an exciting whale watching trip, where you may see: Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins, and Porpoises. Our marine experts do all they can to ensure that you will see whales during the tour, providing plenty of useful information along the way. Although it is important to note that weather and sea conditions play a huge role in how many whales we will see. We take everything into account when we plan these tours and will always aim to put you in the best position possible to see these magnificent creatures. Warm clothing is essential as it can get cold out at sea (even on warm summer days), with the option to watch the whales from the inside an option too. Each trip takes about 2.5 – 3.5 hours and is an unmissable chance to see some of the planet’s most incredible animals in the flesh.

From there we will leave you in Reykjavik to have some lunch, before transporting you to the nutrient-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon: nature’s finest spa. This iconic place has even been recommended by Icelandic doctors to their patients, making it a must visit for anyone, coming to Iceland.



Day 6: Volcanic Veins and Whale watching

On the last day of this package we head from Reykjavik to Reykjanes peninsula. It‘s only a short drive and we will be at Leiðarendi cave probably 20 minutes from pick up which is from 9 – 9.30. To enter we need to go through narrow cave entrance but you will see it reveals an open and wide, extraordinary scenery of lava formations. We will be in the cave from 1,5 to 2 hours discovering a lot of different forms and colours.

After caving we return back to Reykjavik, now to the harbour located downtown. You will get time for lunch before going on board the whale watching boat. There‘s a good chance spotting whales, the most common ones are minke whales, harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins and sometimes the majestic humpback whales. The guides use their experience to help you to know where to look to locate the wildlife, describe what is seen and use their scientific knowledge to answer your questions. The crew will make sure that any birders on board will not miss the birds we encounter!
