Explore the dramatic volcanic landscapes of Iceland’s Golden Circle and South Coast on a 3-day tour from Reykjavik. Enter a blue crystal ice cave in Vatnajökull, see black sand beaches, and take a 3-hour hike across a glacier with a certified guide.
What to Expect
Discover the most fascinating natural sights of Iceland on a 3-day package tour of the Golden Circle, South Coast, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, and Skaftafell. Hike across a glacier, look for the Northern Lights at country hotels, and much more.
Following a pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavík, drive to Þingvellir National Park and discover where two tectonic plates meet. Continue to the Geysir Hot Springs, and get up-close to an erupting geyser. Next, watch the glacial waters of the River Hvítá plummet into a deep canyon at the Gullfoss Waterfall.
Depart the Golden Circle for the South Coast of Iceland, stopping at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall and Skógarfoss Waterfall. Marvel at glaciers in Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull, and then go to the black sand beach at Reynisfjara. Admire the peaks and basalt column caves of Reynisdrangar, before spending the night in a country hotel not far from the beach. In the evening, you may be lucky and see the Northern Lights.
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, and then continue your journey east in the direction of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Walk along the coastline of the lagoon looking for icebergs and resident seals. See a crystal black sand beach that gets it name from the crystal clear icebergs that have floated from the lagoon to the beach. Transfer from Jökulsárslón to the Crystal Ice Cave, where you will have approximately 40 minutes to explore. Check into another country hotel, with the chance to spot the Northern Lights.
Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the base camp to meet a glacier guide and collect your glacier equipment. Head to the Falljökull glacier outlet to take a 3-hour hike across the glacier. Marvel at the glacier formations up-close. Then, transfer back to Reykjavík for an early evening drop off.
