Benefit from expert knowledge with a 3-day small-group tour of the biggest attractions from Reykjavik, with entrance to all sites included. Explore the Snaefellnes Peninsula, travel the Golden Circle route, and admire the scenery of the southern coast. Then, relax at the Secret and Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoons. Daily pickup and drop-off from central Reykjavik Included.

  • Travel with ease between dispersed sites with pickup and drop-off in central Reykjavik
What to Expect
Begin your adventure with pickup from a central Reykjavik location. Meet your local guide and head off to tour the Snaefellnes Peninsula. Keep your camera ready as you take in sights like Mt. Kirkjufell, the geometric basalt columns of Gerduberg, and the black beach of Djupalonssandur.  Next, visit the Berserkjahraun lava field, an area of increased tectonic activity surrounded by rugged natural beauty. Then, return to Reykjavik to conclude your first day. On your second day, you'll head to the Golden Circle, Iceland’s famous scenic route. Visit Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, Leidarendi lava caves, and Geysir Hot Spring Area, and learn more about the island’s volcanic history. Relax with a restorative dip at the Secret Lagoon before returning to Reykjavik. On your last day, meet again at your pickup point, and travel to Iceland’s southern coast. Stop off at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall and stroll behind the tumbling falls.
