Itinerary

Day 1: Golden Circle and Snorkelling in Silfra

Stop At: Troll Expeditions, Fiskislod 45-G, Reykjavik 101 Iceland
Our guide will pick you up at your hotel accommodation or designated bus stop in Reykjavík.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Silfra Diving, Iceland
We head off to Þingvellir and meet our snorkel guides at our trailer in Silfra. First we gear up in a warm Undersuit that will keep you warm in the cold glacier water in Silfra, then we put on a drysuit and all necessary snorkel equipment. When we are fully dressed we head off to Silfra and witness the incredible shades of blue, as well as the natural under-water flora canyon walls. Upon exiting the water, you'll be invited to warm up with hot chocolate and cookies.
Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Thingvellir National Park, Thingvellir Iceland
We visit the place where the two tectonic plates, the North American and the Eurasian plate, are moving away from each other. This is also the home of the largest lake in Iceland and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Thingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. Icelanders founded their parliament in 930 a.d and their chieftains had their annual meeting there every summer. The name "Thingvellir" translates to "Parliament Plains"
Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Gullfoss, White River, Blaskogabyggd 801 Iceland
Langjökull is the second largest glacier in Iceland, the melting water from the glacier falls into a deep canyon forming the majestic "Golden Falls". Rainbows often form over the beautiful waterfall on a sunny day!
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Geysir, Haukadalur Iceland
The Geysir geothermal area is home to hundreds of hot springs and two geysers, erupting hot springs. One of them is called Geysir and is the name giver to all the geysers in the world. Today, however, it erupts very seldom. The other Geysir is called "Strokkur" and erupts every 5 minutes up to 40 meters!
Duration: 1 hour

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Overnight stay at a 3-4 star hotel with a private bathroom.

Day 2: South Coast of Iceland

Stop At: Seljalandsfoss, Hella Iceland
Seljalandsfoss is a one of a kind. It cascades over steep cliffs, which makes it possible for you to walk behind the waterfall. The Scene behind the waterfall and the trembling ground from the water falling down the cliffs will give you chills!
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Skogafoss, Skogar Iceland
Skógafoss is an incredibly picturesque sight. Tucked in a little gorge, the river Skógá tumbles down a 60 meter cliff before continuing down the landscape towards the Atlantic Ocean. Alongside the gorge a staircase can take you to the shelf above the waterfall for stunning views. See if you can count your steps on your way up.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Skaftafellsjokull, Skaftafell, Vatnajokull National Park 785 Iceland
We will hike an outlet glacier spawning from the one of the largest glaciers in the country, Vatnajökull. After meeting our highly trained glacier guides and strapping on our safety and glacier equipment, including helmets, harnesses, crampons and ice axes we hike on the ice for an hour and a half. A spectacular experience and opportunity to learn more about this breathtaking and increasingly rare natural phenomena. Skaftafell area has been used as a filming location for many famous TV shows and films, such as Game of Thrones, Interstellar, James Bond, and others… Follow the steps of your favorite characters into the glacier!
Duration: 3 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Overnight stay at a 3-4 star hotel or guesthouse with a private bathroom.

Day 3: South Coast of Iceland

Stop At: Glacier Lagoon, Skaftafell National Park Route 1, Jokulsarlon 781 Iceland
We start with Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a 200m deep glacial lagoon fed by Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier. Enormous icebergs come from Breiðamerkurjökull all year round so the lagoon is usually filled with ice that floats south. Try walking alongside the glacier lagoon enjoying the magnificent views and dead silence of Icelandic nature.
Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Diamond Beach, Diamond Head Drive Glacier Lagoon Jokulsarlon, Jokulsarlon Iceland
On the other side of the road, the icebergs from Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon float into the Atlantic Ocean where they are quickly thrown back to shore by the tide and winds. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice rocks in all shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Reynisfjara Beach, Route 215, Vik Iceland
Then we visit the black sand beach of Reynisfjara where the Atlantic coastline presents massive waves hitting the unique basalt columns in the cliffs above the sand. Rock pillars in the water and the cliffs of Dýrhólaey are seen in the distance. This area of the south is also a paradise for bird lovers, as puffins and dozens of other unique species nest on top of these cliffs in the summertime from June to August.
Duration: 1 hour

• Breakfast
