Description

On our Premium Golden Circle and South Coast Combo Tour, you will visit Iceland's most popular tourist attractions in one day.
This is an excellent tour if you only have a short time in Iceland. It combines the two most popular itineraries in Iceland, taking you to some of the country's most beautiful places, with all the comforts of a private tour. 

In the morning we will pick you up from your accommodation and start driving along the beautiful Nesjavallaleið scenic route, from which you will enjoy spectacular views of mountains, volcano craters and Thingavallavatn, Iceland's largest natural lake. (Nesjavallaleið is closed during the winter months and in case of severe weather conditions. If this is the case, we will drive a different road).

The Popular Golden Circle Route

We will stop in Thingvellir National Park, where you can see the fissure created by the European and the North American tectonic plates drifting apart. The park was also a filming location for some scenes of Game of Thrones. We will have time to walk around and check out the beautiful Oxarafoss waterfall

From Thingvellir, we continue to the famous Geysir hot spring area, where Strokkur geyser erupts every 8-10 minutes. You can experience the power of Icelandic nature as you walk around the area and take pictures of the hot springs before we head to Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, one of Iceland's most beautiful falls. Next, the fantastic Secret Lagoon. This is the oldest natural pool in Iceland, situated in beautiful surroundings. (Entrance fee to the lagoon is optional. It is 2800 ISK and not included).  

After a geothermal hot bath in the Secret Lagoon, we will be heading towards the Icelandic South Coast. 

As we drive on the famous Ring Road we will be getting closer to one of Iceland's most active volcanoes, Hekla, known in the Middle Ages as the “gateway to hell”. We will have a quick lunch stop at Katla Restaurant in the Lava Centre, where we can observe the monitoring of active volcanic systems, earthquake activity and surface movements in Iceland. 

The Spectacular South Iceland

After lunch, we will visit two breathtaking waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Make sure you bring a raincoat as you will have a chance to walk behind Seljalandsfoss and you will get wet. Skogafoss waterfall is a legendary attraction for its massive cascade dropping from a 60m cliff. On a sunny day, you can see rainbows over the waterfall, making the waterfall a spectacular scene.

From the Ring Road, another Icelandic volcano is visible: the infamous Eyjafjallajokull which erupted in 2010 affecting air traffic all over Europe. You will have the chance to appreciate the silvery glacier on one side of the road and the other side is the extensive southern coastal line to the horizon.

Our next stop will be Solheimajokull. Here we will walk for about 10-15 minutes to the edge of the glacier tongue and we will admire its spectacular blue, black and white ice. Because its vicinity to volcanos in the area, the eruptions happened over the years contributed to the black layered appearance for Solheimajokull glacier. 

Then we will continue to Dyrhólaey promontory and Reynisfjara black sand beach to admire the extensive coastal lines of Iceland from higher up, and the black sand beaches, sea stacks, and basalt columns. In summer, there are puffin colonies near Dyrhólaey cliffs and you might even spot them.

If you take a tour in the winter (September-March) we will stop and try to get a glimpse of the Northern Lights before getting back to Reykjavik, weather permitting.
