This is definitely Iceland’s must-see! We travel in the comfort of our modified 4×4 trucks.

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.”…

REVIEW: “Outstanding tour of a beautiful and amazing country”

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.

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

Combo Private Tour Deal: Golden Circle & Northern Lights

Aurora hunting where we drive all alone. You get two extra local tours if you don’t see anything on the first night.

Home / Super Jeep

Golden Circle Glacier | Super Jeep Private Tour

You get a better price by purchasing this combo deal for 2 different private tours – the Northern Lights private tour of 3-4 hours (evening tour) + our famous Golden Circle Glacier private tour.

Our first destination is the remarkable Thingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates of two continents divide.

From there we will carry on and admire Iceland’s most famous waterfall, Gullfoss Falls. After lunch (food not included in the tour price) we will follow mountain tracks to the imposing Glacier Langjökull. You can go snowmobiling on  the glacier if you want, and many people say this is the highlight of the trip. Those who do not go snowmobiling will continue enjoying the glacier with our guide in the meantime. On the drive back we will discover the famous Geysir hot spring. You will see the geyser Strokkur erupt regularly every 4-8 minutes.

It has amazing colors and lava formations that are just waiting to be discovered in the depths of the earth. The gear is provided by the caving guide, and you would spend about 1 hour exploring the cave. Before we move towards the Hraunfossar waterfall, basically mean lava waterfalls. This waterfall is exceptionally delightful to watch. There are downstream series of the waterfalls which flows under the lava from a distance of about 900 meters. The last meters give more charm to the waterfall as they are visible. It is one of the best places for chilling, and for photography. It is a treasure to watch.

Cascades of Hraunfossar and Barnafossar- They both are neighbouring waterfalls. These waterfalls are located in the Golden circle route. They are not far from the city and the natural beauty of these falls makes the golden circle more attractive. Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls are located in Borgarfjordur in western Iceland in the capital city of Reykjavík.

Hraunfossar waterfall

Barnafossar waterfalls

Barnafoss waterfall also called children’s fall. Barnafossar waterfall is near the Hraunfossar waterfall, another dramatic waterfall. They are located to each other with a few kilometres from Reykholt. Under the national stone bridge, Barnafossar is a mesmerizing light blue waterfall. The scenery around the waterfall is just breathtaking, as the lava flows out from the narrow path. There is a short walk from the car parking to the waterfall and around 300 meters hike to the Hraunfossar waterfall from Barnafossar. It is also an ideal location for photo sessions. These waterfalls are considered as picturesque waterfalls in Iceland and obviously a must-visit if in the country.

Westfjords Strandir | 3 Day Private Tour

The quoted price is for a group of 4 people. We visit the Strandir region by the Arctic Ocean.

Home / Super Jeep

Westfjords Strandir | 3 Day Private Tour

Strandir: The Last Frontier. The region of Strandir in the Westfjords is paramount for isolation, beating to the sound of silence and oblivion in winter. The vast expanses and deep and long fjords are Discover Iceland’s destination, as we reach out on this 3-day super jeep tour, both in summer and winter.

Strandir: The Last Frontier. The region of Strandir in the Westfjords is paramount for isolation, beating to the sound of silence and oblivion in winter. The vast expanses and deep and long fjords are Discover Iceland’s destination, as we reach out on this 3-day super jeep tour, both in summer and winter.

And what can you do in this pristine environment by the Arctic Ocean? Check on the infinity pool of Krossneslaug, maybe opt for snowmobiling (deep winter only), see the northern lights (Sep – mid April) do some hikes, enjoy the fascinating scenery with its waterfalls and driftwood sprinkled on the shores … and breathe.

PRICE: The price here quoted is for a group of 4 people. We can tailor this adventure tour for other group sizes – contact us on info@discover.is for a price quote.

We’ll be accommodated for two nights in Djúpavík, which is the place where you can see an old herring factory. If you like photographing decay, this is going to be paradise for you.

Today we set off for the Westfjords, and we’ll make a detour towards the area of Borgarfjörður, where we see the cascades of Hraunfossar and Barnafossar. Then we visit the largest of all Icelandic lava tube caves, Víðgelmir, known as The Cave. This activity is a guided by a local specialist. The cave has a wooden platform where we can walk, all the way.

We finally meet the Arctic Ocean. We’ll see driftwood that has been encircling the entire polar region, before landing on these shores. The scenery of fjords and mountains is staggering.

On our second day we will explore this area in depth. The geothermal infinity pool of Krossneslaug is a must (don’t forget your swimsuit and towel). Then we head further north for even more desolate areas, such as Fjord Ingólfsfjörður.

The summer program may include hiking in search for hidden waterfalls, and the midnight sun. The winter program may include northern lights, and the possibility of snowmobiling during the months of February and March.

The serene beauty of the Strandir region will say goodbye to us today. As we head south, we will visit other locations. After Hólmavík, we take the road toward a fjord with a thousand islands and skerries. Absolutely breathtaking views there. Today we’ll make a very interesting cultural visit to the replica of the viking longhouse where the discoverer of America was born, Leif Eriksson (Leifur Eiríksson for us). He set foot in America around 1000 AD.

Would you like to take a hike on a volcano? That’s exactly what we’ll do next. It’s possible to hike on Crater Grábrók by a marked trail, and your guide will explain the geology of this volcanic fissure.

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….
