Kickstart an unforgettable adventure exploring the many amazing natural wonders of the South Coast of Iceland, volcanoes, ice caves and more! The Golden Circle, which encompasses three of the most popular attractions in Iceland, is first on the agenda. Explore the beauty of Thingvellir, the magic of Geysir hot spring and the raw power of Gullfoss waterfall and also a visit the Kerid volcanic crater.
Visit the beautiful Skaftafell and walk on the Diamond Beach, an amazing black beach scattered with icebergs, next to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is where huge icebergs float in ice cold water and seals swim around them.
Day 1: The Golden Circle & Kerið Volcanic Crater
Explore the world famous Golden Circle and visit Geysers, Gullfoss, Thingvellir and also a special trip that includes a visit the Volcanic Crater Kerid.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site Thingvellir National park lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across the junction of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Next stop is the Geysir – the biggest geysers of Haukadalur are Strokkur and Geysir itself, which gives the others their name. Strokkur erupts every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters. Here you can also buy some refreshments or lunch.
Head next to Gullfoss, also known as the Golden Waterfall, one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland, powerful and beautiful as it rushes down from two tiers into an ancient valley. Then visit the Volcanic Crater Kerid which is 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep! There is a lake in the bottom of the crater which gives it a magical and colourful appearance. At the end of the day, your accommodation awaits in Seljaland, a lovely country guesthouse located in a beautiful spot close to Seljalandsfoss
Day 2: South coast, the five waterfalls and black beach Reynisfjara
Pass through small towns whilst enjoying the beauty of the Icelandic countryside. Your first stop will be at the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is located beneath the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano which erupted back in 2010. Next up is the stunning Skogafoss waterfall with an unbelievable drop of 60 m (200ft)!
Then it is on to Reynisfjara, a black sand beach nestling under Mt. Reynisfjall – seasonal home to numerous puffins that dive from its cliffs out to sea. At the end of the day, you return to your accommodation in Seljaland. On the way there and during the night, we will look out for the Northern Lights if conditions are favorable to see them.
Day 3: Glacier lagoon and the incredible Blue Ice cave
Kickstart the day with a visit to a natural stunning Blue Ice cave! Head to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon filled with huge chunks of ice that have cracked off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. From the glacier lagoon, explore the best of Icelandic highlands in a special Super Jeep to the ice cave (which only form in the winter when glacial water freezes to create this unique natural phenomenon!).
After this unforgettable adventure, drive back to the Jokulsarlon and from there, you drive to the Skaftafell national park where the amazing views will take your breath away! After this unforgettable adventure, you drive back to the Jokulsarlon where you join the bus again to head back to Reykjavik.
