Full description
See some of the most amazing sites in southern Iceland on this 3-day guided tour. On day one, you'll start your tour by visiting the highlights of the Golden Circle. You'll visit Thingvellir National Park where you can stand with one foot in Europe and one in America, and see Gullfoss, one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. Marvel at the Geysir Srokkur as it erupts every 5-10 minutes, and discover the Mars-like landscape of Kerið, a magical crater lake of brilliant blue-green water surrounded by bright red soil. You'll spend the night in Hveragerði Village. You'll start day two of your tour by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as the lesser-known waterfall of Glufrabui. Then drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap where you'll enjoy a 1.5-hour glacier hike to get a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier. End the day at the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes on the black sands, and you can see the hexagonal basalt columns and black rock sea stacks. Overnight stay in the remote Suðursveit County. On the last day of your tour, take a closer look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. Then, head to the amazing Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you will have a boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. The lagoon is full of huge chunks of ice which crack off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Last stop is at Fjáðrárgæjúfur River Canyon. There is a good possibility of seeing seals swimming around the huge icebergs. At the end of your tour experience, head back to Reykjavik with an estimated arrival time of 9:15 PM.

Superbly organised, this tour combines the Golden Circle first day with two days on the South Coast, with a night in Hveragerdi in between - a town with nearby hot springs in the hills, that makes for a nice afternoon. The minibus on the second day arrived on time and our guide Kristina was excellent. She brought a great positive energy to the tour and added some impressive unscheduled stops too. The second night's accommodation spot is next to a remote farm where you can really feel the vastness of Iceland. The tour was very well organised including at head office who responds almost immediately to any questions you may have along the way. Can't recommend this tour enough,

Amazing tour to see a lot in a short time!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see as much of Iceland as possible in only a few days. Not only do you get to see all the amazing sights on the Golden Circle and the South Coast, but you also have an informative guide to tell you some information regarding these landmarks. You will also get to meet some lovely people as you are together for a few days! Perfect for solo backpackers or anyone really :)
