Fagradalsfjall Geldingadalur Volcano Reykjanes Private Tour

Once in a lifetime experience to see an active Volcano in Iceland

Fagradalsfjall Geldingadalur Volcano Reykjanes Peninsula Private Tour

Would you like to experience an active volcano at Reykjanes peninsula? During this private tour you will see the most popular volcanic eruption in the Iceland´s history. Since the Volcanic eruption started in the valley of Geldingadalur at Fagradalsfjall mountain on 19th of March 2021 Icelanders have flocked to see the Volcano showing its breathtaking beauty. The Volcano is still emitting fresh lava. This is a once in a life time experience not to be missed. On this private tour you will be escorted by a professional local guide from the area and we provide you with all necessary gear for safety.

The eruption is called Geldingadalsgos by Icelanders and has been rated as the most popular volcanic eruption due to high volume of local people that have visited the area.   The eruption may develop to be a Shield volcano eruption.  It is important to be conscious while hiking around the area due to high level of volcanic gases such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide which make parts of the area inaccessible.

The BEST and only way to really see Iceland

During our cruise to Iceland my husband and I decided to book a private tour with a local company rather than relying on the cruise line during our time in Reykjavik. After a lot of researching we decided to book with Discover Iceland, which turned out to be a brilliant decision….

The ONLY way to see Iceland

I cannot say enough good things about Discover Iceland. The office was very responsive and informative while booking tours and the guides were all extremely nice, professional, and fearless when it came to the snow-covered roads in blizzard-like conditions. We had the fearless Orri and his amazing “super-jeep” Joy for two tours (Golden Circle with snowmobiles and Southern Coast) …

REVIEW: “South Coast Tour... Fabulous!”

“[…] it is absolutely worth spending the extra money and taking a private tour. Orri was able to take us off roading to some magnificent areas. Truly breathtaking scenery. We were able to stop where and whenever we wanted to take pictures. Orri was a pleasure to talk to and shared his love and knowledge of his beautiful country.” …

REVIEW: “South Coast Tour”

“[…] Because our tour was just two of us, we were free to tailor the tour to our interests and even take some “adventurous” routes to a lighthouse and to a viewpoint high above Reykjavik to see the city at night. Iceland is an special place and being able to be at the places you use for your desktop background was something I’ll never forget. Discover Iceland was top-notch in making your trip as special as the landscape itself.”…

We spent 8 days in Iceland with our driver / guide Orri Amin, an experienced and delightful person who’s been with Discover Iceland for many years. Orri and “his” modified 4-wheel drive Nissan, nicknamed “Joy”, took us around Iceland in 8 days. Orri made sure we got our money’s worth — from horseback riding, to whale watching, to snowmobiling on a beautiful glacier, to visiting a farm, to eating delicious lobster and other fish — and to being driven to so many waterfalls we lost count!

REVIEW: “Creative and Fun Tour Guides”

We went for a 7 day private tour of Iceland in late December thinking that time of year would give us the best chance to see the Northern Lights and the incredible Ice Caves we’d seen in various photos. We scoured Trip Advisor for the best tour guides and landed on Discover Iceland. Obviously, you’re always at the mercy of the weather that time of year, particularly in Iceland.

Golden Circle Tour Iceland

Tour the classic Golden Circle Private Tour. We’ll show you some extra gorgeous locations.

Home / Private Tours in Iceland

Golden Circle Tour Iceland

On this Golden Circle Tour Iceland you will experience the highlights of the most popular tour in Iceland along with all the hidden secret stops we love so much

The tour is delivered using luxurious SUV/minivan that takes 1-7 persons or for larger groups in a Mercedes minibus that takes 1-16 persons and offers the flexibility and personal service that we like when traveling around.

We begin with the intensely red pseudo craters of Rauðhólar and here you’ll learn about volcanoes and eruptions.

The Rauðhólar known as red hills is basically the remains of pseudocraters in Elliðaárhraun lava fields in the south of Reykjavík city. The reason behind Rauðhólar pseudo craters look so lovely is the eye-catching red color, which is brought about by the scoria being hued by the oxidation of the iron in the lava. The Rauðhólar is around 5200 years old. It was proclaimed as a nature reserve in 1974.

Then we’ll take you to the ocean, to a desolate place, the black sandy beach around a river delta. This is a time to enjoy open spaces and solitude.

Reynisfjara Beach is the most popular black sand beach on the South Coast of Iceland. The wonderful dark sand with incredible waves, also close-by Reynisdrangar ocean Basalt stacks make Reynisfjara a really special spot to visit during Golden Circle Tour Iceland. The reason behind the sand at Reynisfjara being black is that it is formed from vigorously disintegrated volcanic rocks, which are obviously black in color. They have been formed by the solidification of the lava that had been cooled with time.

Then we go to see the famous Crater Kerið (a small entrance fee applies), then Waterfall Faxi.

The mighty Gullfoss Falls will be our next stop. Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall) is a famous waterfall in Iceland offering a marvelous perspective of the beauty and excellence of our nature. Gullfoss is a must-visit part of the Golden Circle Tour Iceland. It is situated in South Iceland on the Hvítá (White) waterway.

When you will get near to this waterfall, you will probably feel extremely little. The proportion of water slipping through the stones is astounding! The best thing about this gorgeous fall is that you can see it is overflowing from the top and get a fascinating view. This spot is spectacular, it will definitely make a place in your heart forever.

See, it is a condition such as high blood circuation. Learn more: www.gulickhhc.com/drugs/birth-control/yasmin.htm

Next will be the Geyser Strokkur, which erupts every 5-8 minutes. Have you at any point seen hot spring water spouting out of the earth and rose to a few meters high in the sky? Don’t miss the chance of taking a look at this present nature’s excellent phenomenon in your Golden Circle Tour Iceland.

Our last stop is Thingvellir National Park, a location very dear to Icelanders due to the contribution it’s given to our history. It’s also a tremendously important place, geologically speaking, since here it’s possible to see the tectonic plates of two continents, splitting apart. And then, we return to Reykjavik and drop you off at your hotel, hoping you’ve enjoyed our minibus tour just like kids :). It is located around 45 min a long way from the capital city, and this is the essential stop on the Golden Circle Tour Iceland.

Contact us by email at info@discover.is if you can’t find availability for your traveling date or if you want to discuss adjust the itinerary.

REVIEW: “Golden Circle - THE BEST!!!”

“Wow, I really can’t even begin to describe how amazing this tour is! Our guide, Guðmundur Yngvi Hraunfjörð, went above and beyond. We covered so much ground!! These tours are long, but the day really flies by. This also provides the best of both worlds if you’re conflicted about Golden Circle vs. Southern Coast […]”

REVIEW: “A true gem of a company”

[…] The combination of lovely guide, off-the-beaten path sites, and small tour size made Discover Iceland’s Spicy Golden Circle tour an excellent value for the money and a great way to spend my 1 full day in the country. […]

REVIEW: “Mission Blue Ice was the highlight of our trip”

Even though we had so many things planned, never once did we feel rushed. This was very important to us, since my boyfriend’s a photographer and takes his time taking in the sights!

REVIEW: “Mission Blue Great Adventure”

Our guide Gummi and trip mates made this vacation one of my all time favorites. The country of Iceland has a magical allure and pristine beauty unto it self and we got to experience it to the fullest with this very personal and fantastic tour.

Home / Private Tours in Iceland

Landmannalaugar & Golden Circle | 2 day Private Tour

Iceland in winter is mega cool, and has certainly a lot to offer. We therefore present to you the “Landmannalaugar & Golden Circle Tour”, available only during winter (Nov – May)

Included in this tour is sleeping bag accommodation and Icelandic traditional dinner in the end of day 1 as well as breakfast.  

If you want to enjoy snow and an exciting off-road trip on a super jeep with huge tires, sleeping in a mountain hut in the middle of nowhere and eat traditional Icelandic food, then this is the trip for you. We will always be ready for the northern lights if they show up. The itinerary and group accommodations lend well for a corporate trip or incentive travel, for example, though other groups are welcome too!

As an optional activity for an extra cost, this tour has the possibility of snowmobiling in the area. We can bring the snow scooters over, and you’re welcome to use them as long as you wish. And if the weather is crazy in Landmannalaugar, we propose a similar tour to Thorsmork instead.

The price is for 4 people, contact us on info@discover.is if you have larger group.

The Landmannalaugar in winter is a truly unique place. This environment is the natural habitat of super jeeps and adventures. There will be snow for sure, just all over the place. We’ll listen to the silence, work together as a team in reaching this location, and share in meals and fellowship with one another. These are the highlights of this trip :) And maybe the northern lights will show up to crown this 2 or 3 day adventure. Your choice!
