Itinerary

Welcome to Iceland

You will be greeted at the arrival gate by a person holding a name sign and accompanied to the airport exit. You will be guided through passport control and the baggage delivery area. This service includes Fast-Track through passport control.

In the arrival hall, you will meet with your private driver guide.

Reykjavík city sightseeing

You will explore the charming city of Reykjavík on a city sightseeing tour with us.

Our expert driver-guide will drive you around the city to explore some of its' major highlights;

  • Harpa Congress & Event hall
  • The Old harbor area
  • Hallgrímskirkja church (optional to pay on-site for a trip to the top of the tower)
  • Statue of Leifur Eiríksson, the first settler in Reykjavík
  • Höfði house
  • Sólfarið metal sculpture
  • Bessastaðir, president's home
  • Perlan (optional to pay on-site for entry to the viewing deck)
  • Reykjavík city hall
  • Alþingi, parliament house

Travel to Geysir - Thingvellir National Park

After about 1 hour of driving out of the city, you will have reached Thingvellir national park. Besides being a natural wonder, it is also the site where the world’s longest continuously run parliament was founded and still running some good 1.000 years later, but now as Althingi in Reykjavik. Thingvellir is also a site of geological wonders, as it lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. You can clearly see the rift and how the movement of the tectonic plates pulls the island apart, approximately 2,5 cm every year.

Accommodation in the Geysir area.

Day 1
Around Geysir

Your driver-guide will pick you up from your accommodation in the morning.

Geysir Geothermal area

The dormant geyser Geysir is the one and only geyser that gave all other geysers their name! It is no longer active, but the Strokkur geyser erupts every 20 minutes or so, and can reach heights up to 25 meters!

Gullfoss Waterfall

The waterfall gives the Golden circle its name. It is mostly known for its’ beauty, but the sheer power of it has also been the cause of much debate on hydro-plants vs tourism and land preservation.

Private Snowmobile Tour

Let's get the 4x4 to work and travel up to the glacier area of Langjökull. It takes about 1 hour to reach the snowmobile base. Once you are at the base you will gear up and get safety instructions.

Your expert snowmobile guide will then lead you on a 1-hour snowmobile ride on the ice and snow of Europe's second-largest glacier. Zoom through the vast expanse of white on your very own snowmobile! What better way to experience a glacier?

Optional activities:

  • Friðheimar Restaurant & Tomato Farm
  • The Secret Lagoon Geothermal Pool
Day 2
Valley of Thor Super Jeep Adventure

Your driver-guide will pick you up in a fully modified Super Jeep, which is essential for today's itinerary to Thorsmork, the lushly vegetated mountain valley named after Thor, the Viking God of Thunder.  We have put together the perfect itinerary for visiting this stunning gem, allowing the nature lover in you to escape the city and take a perfect trip.

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Now we’ll turn off the ring road in the direction of Thorsmork and make a stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The breathtakingly beautiful, 60 meters tall Seljalandsfoss is one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland and it’s on the list of Iceland’s 10 most photographed natural wonders. You can walk behind the waterfall on a walking trail for a unique viewing angle. r. On a bright and sunny day, there is a chance to see a rainbow in front of the waterfall.

Gígjokull Glacier

Next, we will continue our way in the direction of Thorsmork and head all the way up to Gígjökull, one of the outlet glaciers of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. You can walk entirely to the icefall edge, touch and walk on the glacier. You can get an idea of the forces that were at play during the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull that not only destroyed the agricultural region around it but stopped air traffic in Europe. Powerful glacial bursts emerged from Gigjokull during the eruption, sending meltwater gushing down and flooding the surrounding landscape. You’ll witness that the impact of the eruption is still very visible in the area.

Visiting a Game of Thrones filming location

The next stop will explore a breathtaking canyon, which is just out of this world and one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones. Stakkholtsgjá canyon is a beautiful natural wonder, a 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) long canyon surrounded by 100 meters (330 ft ) high moss-covered cliffs.
Walking to the end of the canyon is one of the most rewarding short hikes in Iceland. This dramatic, towering canyon was the filming location of a scene in Game of Thrones season 7 when Jon Snow leads the team to ambush a pack of wights. The palagonite cliffs have many interesting and dramatic forms, caves, narrow and deep ravines. Inside the canyon, there is a small creek, and you will find a dreamlike, beautiful waterfall in a high cave at the end of the track. It’s not just a stunning place, but a place you may think this is one of those places where elves and trolls live. This is one reason why Icelanders have loved and visited this canyon for many years.

Thorsmork, the valley of Thor

After our walk in the canyon, we will follow our way to deep into Thorsmork, the scenic valley of Thor. This will be the best playground for your super jeep: crossing rivers and handling the rough terrain will be a great adventure.   Thorsmork is a natural reserve in a remote area of the southern Icelandic Highlands, nestled between 3 glaciers and one of the most favorite locations for Icelanders and many travelers. The valley is a green oasis between three glacier rivers with wide vegetation of moss, birch wood, and other small shrubs. This lush green area contrasts dramatically against the black sand desert of the Markarfljót riverbed and the imposing glaciers around it. Locals swear that Thorsmork is one of the most beautiful destinations in Iceland. Once we are deep into the Thorsmork valley, you have the opportunity to enjoy the amazing landscape, have lunch and take nice short hikes around the area, and really drink in the beautiful unspoiled nature of Iceland.

Nauthúsagil Ravine

On our way back we will stop at one of our favorite places. Nauthúsagil ravine is a true hidden gem of Iceland’s South Coast. Its famed characteristics are the rowan trees growing on the ridges, sometimes horizontally, creating a roof of leaves. We will walk through the narrow ravine and explore its unique, beautiful world. At the end of the ravine, there is an enchanting waterfall waiting for us. The combination of the waterfall and the light from above is unrealistically beautiful.

Accommodation: Blue Lagoon Retreat Hotel & Spa

Day 3
Volcanic Iceland

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Your driver-guide will pick you up from your accommodation in the morning.

Reykjanes Peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark – a cultural, geographical, and historical treasure trove where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge rises above sea level. Nowhere else in the world can you see the oceanic ridge and its divergent plate boundary as clearly as in Reykjanes. Pillow lava, curious rock formations in the shape of elves, trolls, and outlaws put their distinct mark on the amazing landscape of the peninsula.

Garðskagaviti lighthouse is located in the tiny village Garður, at the far edge of the peninsula. The lighthouse has been an inspiration for many artists and novelists and is the home to an amazing folk museum.

Brimketill lava rock pool is a small pool carved by marine erosion. Folklore relates that the pond was regularly occupied by a giantess named Oddný.

The Bridge Between Continents is a symbolic footbridge that spans a wide tension crack that opened due to the divergent movements of the North American and Eurasian plates. The average rifting amount is about 2 cm per year!

Gunnuhver is a group of mud pools and steam vents that were largely formed by earthquake activity in 1967. The name stems from folklore about the vicious ghost Gunna, who was lured into a vent, never to be seen again.

A visit to The Viking world museum is a highlight for many, where you can learn all about Vikings, their pastimes and work.

Inside the Volcano - Þríhnúkagígar

The dormant Þríhnúkagígur volcano is a unique natural phenomenon. By setting up the necessary gear and equipment, we’ve created a tour that opens the door to a new world. To be able to experience this wonder, all you need is the willingness to do a moderate 45–50 minute hike (to get to the crater) and the guts to descend 120 meters/400 feet to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift. The hike to the volcano is an integral part of the tour, not only because of the breathtaking scenery but also because it’s one of only two ways of getting to the base of the volcano. The other option is to use a helicopter.
