Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Snæfellsnes Peninsula Excursion

Discount Tour Combo | Snaefellsnes, Golden Circle, Secret Lagoon & Jokulsarlon

On day one of your package, get ready to behold the versatile wonders of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This beautiful area of diverse terrains is often dubbed ‘Iceland in miniature’ and is the perfect start to your tour. The multi-coloured display of mountains, coastlines, beaches, craters and glaciers is sure to make you fall in love with Iceland indefinitely.

On this day, you will visit the charming and idyllic fishing villages of Grundarfjörður, Arnarstapi and Hellnar - all important historical ports of call, some since the Middle Ages, steeped in ancient customs and folklore and surrounded by mountain ranges and towering coastal cliffs.

You will also behold the splendour of Mt. Kirkjufell, the volcanic craters at Ljósufjöll and the black pebble beach at Djúpalónssandur. The crowning jewel of the peninsula is the one, and only Snæfellsjökull, a 700.000-year-old glacier volcano made legendary in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.

After your full day adventure of these incredible sights so archetypical for the country in whole, you will get shipped back to Reykjavík City, where you can gather your strength and excitement for your next adventure. 

Day 2 - Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon

On your second day, you will again head out from the capital, this time around to witness the number one attraction in Iceland, the Golden Circle. Upon visiting the sights of this route, you will immediately understand their acclaim, as you behold the power of the earth itself beneath your feet.

But before your exploration, get ready for some relaxation; treat your body, mind and soul with a soak in the geothermal and mineral-rich waters of the Secret Lagoon in the municipality of Flúðir. This lagoon is the lesser-known counterpart to the Blue Lagoon, an entirely different experience but just as rewarding.

After emerging from the healing waters of the hot springs, get ready to head to the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur Valley, where the fountain geyser Strokkur actively sprouts boiling water into the sky every few minutes.

Afterwards, you will witness the unharnessed power of Gullfoss Falls, a majestic waterfall that leaves everybody in awe of its splendour. The falls are protected by Icelandic law as the natural gem that they are - keep an eye out for the stone mural of the woman who threatened to throw herself down them for their protection.

Your day will conclude with an exploration of Þingvellir National Park, a site both geologically and historically fascinating. The park is located on the continental rift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates and was furthermore the location of Iceland’s very first Parliament.

At the end of your day, you will get shipped back to Reykjavík City for the night. Don’t forget to explore the urban life of the small but bustling capital before retreating to your accommodation.

Day 3 - Jökulsárlón with Boat Ride & South Coast

On the last day of your all-around package excursion, you will explore the wonders of Iceland’s south coast, where fire meets ice and natural pearls are plentiful. Heading out from Reykjavík, you will drive along the coastline until reaching the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón.

The lagoon offers a unique scenery of serenity, as large icebergs travelling from Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest ice cap, gather to float in the ice-cold waters in an ever-changing display. The tour includes the additional delight of a boat ride amongst the glaciers, bringing you closer to their allure, and to the resident seals that call the lagoon home.

Located in the Skaftafell National Park, in fair weather, you will also get a splendid view of the infamous Eyjafjallajökull, the glacier volcano that so memorably erupted back in 2010. As you get back on the bus to head back, you will be stopping to visit the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

These waterfalls provide excellent photo opportunities, and Seljalandsfoss includes the additional marvel of your ability to walk behind it, to look out through the tapestry of water from the inside of the mountain. Also included is a visit to the village Vík and its neighbouring beach Reynisfjara, a site of raw oceanic force with the basalt column cliffs Reynisdrangar visible just offshore.

The beach is frequently lauded as one of the most beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world, but the current is strong so approach with care and respect for the elements. At the end of the day, you will be shipped back to Reykjavík one last time, knowing that you just explored the most diverse sights of the country in just three, city-centered days.
