Overview
Skip short Iceland tourist circuits in favor of this comprehensive 3-day guided trip to the Golden Circle and South Coast. Spend a full day exploring the Golden Circle—with its national park, geysers, and waterfalls—and another two to visit the South Coast and Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. See a ton in a few days and finish with an ice cave exploring adventure.
Highlights
  • See many of Iceland’s most beautiful sights without feeling rushed
  • Two night’s accommodation and breakfast are included
  • Your guide and driver know the best way to get around a large part of Iceland
  • Mix sightseeing with a glacier hike and ice cave exploration
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel or a designated bus stop in Reykjavik. From there, set out toward Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Then, see some of the area’s largest geysers: Strokkur and Geysir. Gullfoss—the Golden Waterfall—and the Kerid crater are next. Spend the night in a country guesthouse in Seljaland. The second day is spent visiting the coast, multiple waterfalls, and a black-sand beach. After breakfast, make the journey to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall located beneath the Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Stop at the less-known Gljufrabui waterfall nearby. Visit three more waterfalls: the 200-foot-tall (60 meters) Skogafoss, secret Kvernufoss, and Írafoss. The final stop of the day is Reynisfjara beach, with its black-sand and basalt formations. On day three, drive through the village of Vik and stop at Skaftafell National Park on the way to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Hop in a “Super” Jeep with a guide and find a suitable blue ice cave to explore. Then, make the journey back to Reykjavik and get dropped off at your original departure point.
