Begin your adventure with pickup from a central Reykjavik location. Meet your local guide and head off to tour the Golden Circle, Iceland’s famous scenic route. Visit Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, Leidarendi lava caves, and Geysir Hot Spring Area, and learn more about the island’s volcanic history. After a day spent admiring the sights, return to a specified location in Reykjavik.

On your second day, meet again at your pickup point, and travel to Iceland’s southern coast. Hike and climb your way up the Solheimajokull Glacier to view its ice walls. For the brave hearted, have a go at ice climbing with expert supervision. Stop off at the Skogafoss Waterfall on your way back, before drop-off back in the city.

On your last day, spend some time independently discovering Reykjavik, then regroup for a visit to the Blue Lagoon. Take the opportunity to relax in the geothermal spa before heading to the observation decks for an impressive view of the landscape. Once unwound, head back to the capital where your tour ends.
