South Shore Adventure

Begin your holiday in Iceland with a visit to the amazing South Shore of Iceland crossing fertile farmlands with striking views over waterfalls, glaciers and beautiful nature. It’s a great way to spend your first full day in Iceland.

Drive along the south coast of Iceland, one of the country's most scenic regions, as far as Vik, a charming village surrounded by beautiful high bird cliffs.

Along the way we stop at the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, were you can walk behind it and through to the other side.

We also stop at the majestic and much-photographed Skogafoss waterfall, with its 60-metre drop, and visit the Skogar folk museum, to get a taste of how Icelanders lived in centuries past.

Other highlights include views of the stunning Myrdalsjokull glacier, the black sand coastline and the impressive Reynisdrangar rock formations.


Golden Circle

One of the highlights of Iceland’s spectacular geography is the Golden Circle. We have arranged a full day tour where you will visit Thingvellir National Park, a remarkable historical and geological site, which is located by Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of two of the earth's tectonic plates. Furthermore, it is in this area the oldest form of parliament had met since 930.

Gullfoss waterfall is where you will see thousands of tons of icy water thunder majestically down in double falls into a deep canyon.

The Geysir geothermal area is where bubbling hot springs and geysers are abundant. Here you'll also find Strokkur, the most active geyser in the area, spouting up to 25-30 meters into the sky.


Reykjanes Peninsula

We visit the Reykjanes peninsula where you can see the mid Atlantic ridge rise from the ocean and more than half of the peninsula is covered with lava fields, some of which are only a few hundred years old. This is a magnificent area with rich bird life in the summer.

First we head towards the community of Sandgerdi, one of the country's major fishing points. The tour continues along the coast line through Midnesheidi moor which rises up from the lowland. We will stop at the stone built church of Hvalneskirkja from the year 1887.

The journey proceeds through lava fields onwards to Sandvik where two of the earth's tectonic plate split. At Sandvik you will get the opportunity to walk over a symbolic footbridge which crosses a fissure which provides clear evidence of the rift between the European and the North American tectonic plates.

Continue to the old lighthouse on the westernmost tip of the peninsula. We will also stop at Gunnuhver, the country's largest mud pool. Pass through the fishing village Grindavík on the way to the Blue Lagoon.

There you have three different options; a visit to the Blue Lagoon, transfer to Keflavik Airport or return back to Reykjavik.


Blue Lagoon (Optional)

Enjoy a relaxing time at Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is known for its special properties and its beneficial effects on the skin, and attracts visitors from all over the world in search of health, relaxation and an exotic experience. The Blue Lagoon's warm water and natural active ingredients; mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and unwind while the lagoon's distinctive white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin. The mineral salts balance and relax body and soul.

In addition to bathing in the lagoon, guests have access to a sauna with a view of the lagoon, a steam-bath with white walls that resemble silica-mud and a cosy steam-bath carved into a lava cave. Guests can also stand beneath a small waterfall for an energizing massage. Of course, guests bathing in the milky waters of the Blue Lagoon have easy access to the famous white silica-mud, an essential part of the spa experience.
