On this most popular tour we take you to see the top attractions in Iceland. We start the day by driving out of the city through the valley of MOSFELLSDALUR and crossing the highlands of MOSFELLSHEIÐI. Now we start to see the amazing views across ÞINGVELLIR unesco park which is famous for its history of accommodating our first parliament in the world 960, you will also experience the geological aspect of the earth seeing the ATLANTIC RIFT rising up showing a big LAVA WALL. Next we pass the lake of ÞINGVALLAVATN with amazing views before we drive through LAUGAVATN before coming into the GEYSIR hot springs area, this is were you will see our famous STROKKUR hot spring erupt every 10 minutes high up in the air. After Geysir we will take you to the great waterfall of GULLFOSS to enjoy the views across the 3 level cascading waterfall which will leave you breathless. We will have a lunch stop at either Gullfoss or Geysir depending on the group wishes.
Have you heard of Iceland’s beautiful waterfalls, glaciers, and black sand beach? The South Coast has all of that, and much more such as seeing lava fields, volcanoes. You’ll visit the Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls before proceeding to the black sand beach of Reynisfjara with its rich bird life during summer, and basalt rocks. The sea stacks of Reynisdrangar are a well known sight there.
The highlight of the day is the Glacier Sólheimajökull. We drive toward this glacier outlet of the ice cap Mýrdalsjökull. You will have the chance to see the glacier up close.
There’ll be many secret stops along the way, as usual with us, but we can’t tell you anything about it because, as it’s often said … “only Guide knows” 🙂 Have fun!
The Ice Cave or Walk On Ice & Jölulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
Today we’ll visit the ice cave if you are travelling from November to March or do a walk on Ice if you are travelling from April to October with a certified glacier guide who will take care of our security. We’ll get ice crampons and helmets – your beanie should not be too bulky since it needs to fit under the helmet. We’ll spend some 45 minutes inside the cave although the whole process will take some 3 hours in total. We’ll also visit the Skaftafell nature reserve, belonging to a National Park. And of course, the iceberg lagoon of Jökulsárlón and Diamond Beach. They have the same blue ice color as the cave. This day will end back in Reykjavik with a long drive back.
