Typical day

Day 1: Airport pickups. Meet other tour participants 
DAY 2: Departure to South – Golden Circle
  • The Golden Circle is the most popular day tour in Iceland.
  • Geysers, The Golden Waterfall and Thingvellir are classic destinations for any visitor to our island.
  • Thingvellir National Park is the National shire of all Icelanders. It lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland, a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, the junction of the American and Eurasian Tectonic Plates. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America.
  • Geysir & Strokkur are the biggest geysers of Haukadalur. Strokkur erups every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters.
  • Gullfoss is one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland.
  • A visit to ancient Viking Parliament area of Þingvellir National Park tops it off before heading to the south where we will take the ferry to the island of Vestmannaeyjar.
DAY 3: The island of the Volcanos
  • We start the day by taking the ferry over to the Vestmannaeyjar Island where we can discover a fresh volcano called Eldfell. It errupted in 1973 forcing the evacuation of the inhabitants for the five months that the eruption continued. At the time, there was uncertainty whether the island could ever be repopulated. The eruption caused the destruction of a third of the town, and the massive changes to the landscape of this tiny island made world news. Afterwards, the island became a destination for tourists and scientists alike from all over the world. Now, more than 44 years have passed, and the memories and signs of the spectacular eruption are fading, but lava and ash still cover almost 400 homes and buildings.
DAY 4: Glacier & Waterfalls
  • Today we will discover the beautiful south coast of Iceland.
  • We start the day going to the mainland by ferry.
  • In the south coast, you can see many of the most beautiful places in Iceland. A great combination of Ice, lava fields, lagoons, huge mountains, volcanoes and rough black coastline.
  • There are also plenty of great waterfalls in the area for example Skógafoss, Irafoss and the secret waterfall Kvernufoss, we will enjoy the pure nature and visit many places of interests. We will stop by the mentioned waterfalls, in Reynisfjara Black Beach which is the most amazing beach in the whole country.
  • The highlight of the day is a unique glacier walk in Solheimajokull which takes around 1.5 hours. During the hike, you will have special guides which are trained to do those kinds of walks and they will provide you all necessary equipment for the safety.
DAY 5: Vestrahorn Mountain, Viking Village and the Eastern Fjords
  • We start the day by visiting the biggest glacier in Europe – Vatnajokull, then Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and the Diamond Beach.
  • We continue the tour by visiting mountain Vestrahorn which is one of the best spots for photos in Iceland. There you can also find Stokksnes and the Viking Village.
  • We also visit Petru Stone Museum where you can see a unique collection of natural stones from the area.
