Iceland in the Spring

Are you planning on visiting Iceland this spring and you need some help planning your trip? You are in the right place!

Spring is one of the best seasons to visit Iceland: the country wakes up after the long dark winter months, days get longer and the wonderful colors of Iceland start to show. There is a lot to see and do in Iceland in the spring and here are our picks for the best day tours you can take in Iceland this spring.

One of the most popular tours and a must-see if you are visiting Iceland, this is a tour that everybody can take and it is the perfect gateway from the city. The beautiful Thingvellir National Park is on the Golden Circle route and it is where you can admire the canyon created by the North American and the European tectonic plates drifting apart. Other unmissable stops are Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall, the famous Geysir, and the Secret Lagoon, where you can relax in a natural pool of geothermal water just like Icelanders love to do. If you join our Private Golden Circle Tour by Jeep, you will be able to walk around Kerið volcano crater as taste one of Iceland’s best ice-creams in a countryside farm.

Another perfect gateway from Reykjavik is the popular South Shore Tour which takes you all the way to Vík and back. It is definitely worth the drive because on the tour you will get to see Seljalandsfoss, the waterfall you can walk behind, the powerful Skógarfoss and the beautiful Sólheimajökull glacier. You will feel the power of Icelandic nature as you walk on the black beaches around Vík, always windy and always beautiful any time of the year. Our Premium South Coast Tour will also take you to the popular Dakota plane wreck that you reach with a walk on Sólheimasandur black beach. This is a great tour if you want to see fantastic landscapes and take great pictures.

Check-out our Spring Gateway Offer that combines these two fantastic private day tours at a very affordable price.  


One of my favorites, the Snæfellsnes tour will take you to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula where you can see charming fishing villages, lovely beaches, amazing lava fields, sea cliffs, and rock formations, and of course the famous Snaefellsjökull Glacier and the church mountain, Kirkjufell. This is absolutely one of the most beautiful places in Iceland and it is not as touristy as the South so you might find more peace and smaller crowds. A tour to Snæfellsnes is a breathtaking experience that you can be sure to love as you drive through fantastic lava fields and out-of-this-world landscapes.

Another great tour is the Reykjanes Tour, perfect if you want to keep off the beaten track and see a very wild part of Iceland. You will admire sea cliffs populated by a great variety of birds, you will be able to walk between the American and the European tectonic plates at the Bridge Between Two Continents and you will visit some breath-taking geothermal areas such as Seltún with its colorful hills and mud pools. If you choose our Reykjanes private tour, you can also add a visit to the Blue Lagoon and to the Lava Tunnel to enjoy Iceland’s nature at its best.  View of Kleifarvatn Lake on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland
