Reykjavik: Private Golden Circle and South Coast Tour

2. Reykjavik: Private Golden Circle and South Coast Tour

You will start your premium Golden Circle and south coast tour by driving along the beautiful Nesjavallaleid scenic route with your jeep. This road winds through mountains and volcano craters, offering great views of Thingavallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake. The first stop of the tour is the Thingvellir National Park, which is famous for being the site of the first parliament both in Iceland and the world. You will then continue to the famous Geysir hot spring area. Geysir erupts every 8-10 minutes, and you can walk around the area and take pictures of the hot springs before we head to Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, another unmissable place to see in Iceland. Your journey then continues towards Fludir, stopping at Faxi Waterfall first and then reaching the Secret Lagoon (only during the months of April - September). This beautiful natural hot pool is one of the oldest in Iceland and is definitely a gem you should not miss. After a relaxing bath in the Secret Lagoon (optional and at your own expense), you will continue towards the South Coast. As you drive south, you will get closer to one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes, Hekla. In the middle ages, Hekla was known as the “gateway to hell”. You will have a beautiful view of the volcano as you drive towards the Lava Centre, your next stop, where we can observe the monitoring of active volcanic systems, earthquake activity, and surface movements in Iceland. You will then make a quick lunch stop at Katla Restaurant, which is in the Lava Centre. Following lunch, you will continue to Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. Get your cameras ready and make sure you wear a raincoat, as you will have time to walk behind Seljalandsfoss, becoming drenched in the pristine cascading water. Following the waterfall, you will drive past Iceland’s most infamous volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano that froze air traffic in 2010 and made Iceland famous all over the world. Your next stop is Solheimajokull, a beautiful glacier tongue which is easy to walk to. Here you have a chance to walk close to the glacier and admire its blue, white, and black ice. You will finally continue to the Dirholey Cliffs and Reynisfjara, where you can admire black sand beaches, sea stacks, and basalt columns.

Private Tour: The Spectacular South Coast

5. Private Tour: The Spectacular South Coast

Get picked up from your Reykjavík area accommodation in the morning and get ready to discover the southern coast of Iceland on this 10-hour private tour. Let your driver/guide know if you have any special requests, then settle in to the comfortable vehicle and keep your camera at the ready, as you drive east of the capital and into the countryside. The first stop is Urriðafoss, the most voluminous waterfall in the country, before moving on to the country's perhaps most-photographed waterfall, Seljalandsfoss. Set against the backdrop of Eyjafjallajökull glacier, Seljalandsfoss is especially popular for the reason that visitors can actually walk behind it. Next, stop at the Eyjafjallajökull visitor center to learn about the volcano's infamous 2010 eruption, which caused travel chaos throughout Europe, before continuing to Skógarfoss waterfall.  The final stop is the black sand beach of Reynisfjara and natural sea arch of Dyrhólaey. After a full day of exploring, head back to Reykjavík. Depending on the time, there may be the chance to make another stop or two before being dropped off back at your accommodation.
