Dyrhólaey is a small peninsula that is one of the South Coast's most distinguishing natural features.

See all the main attractions in Iceland, including Reykjavík, the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon. And travel all the way to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in the East, through the South Coast of Iceland first. This tour is for everyone who would like to relax on their vacation and let us take care of the details of planning the perfect trip to Iceland. 

This tour is all-inclusive, making the most of your stay in Iceland. It includes accommodation for 4 nights, all transportation and tours of all the best locations. You can also opt to hike on a glacier with a gorgeous view of the South Coast before you reach Jökulsárlón and the Diamond beach.

You'll see plenty of waterfalls, a black sand beach, glaciers, and volcanoes. You'll also have the chance to explore Reykjavík and you can add on extra options during your day on the famous Golden Circle route if sightseeing at some of the most popular places in the nation isn't exciting enough.

You can, for example, go horseback riding through a geothermal field near Gullfoss waterfall. For more action, go snowmobiling on top of Langjökull glacier. Or, for some real geological excitement, snorkel in Silfra gorge and float between two Continental plates, exploring the mysteries of the deep blue waters.

You'll make your home in the city center of Reykjavík for 3 nights, spending another night in Vatnajökull National Park so that you can fully embrace nature. This gives you plenty of time to enjoy the hiking trails in the countryside, just as much as the art galleries, museums,  and cafés in the capital. 

Enjoy the long summer days and explore all the best the country has to offer on this perfect 5-day itinerary! Reserve now to save on costs and choose a date to check for availability.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Reykjavík


Iceland's capital, Reykjavík, is famous for its multi-coloured rooftops.


After your arrival at the international airport in Keflavík, you'll make your way to the northernmost capital in the world: Reykjavik!

Spend the rest of the day exploring Reykjavík and settle into your hotel room in the centre of town. You'll find plenty of interesting places to see, such as the Hallgrímskirkja church, Laugavegur and Skólavörðustígur shopping streets.

There are plenty of designer boutiques, quirky cafés, world-class restaurants, the Old Harbour, the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center, and Reykjavík's pond by the city council building, just to name a few of the places you can explore. 

Transportation from the airport to Reykjavík is included, and you'll spend your first evening in Iceland there.


Day 2 - The Golden Circle


Gullfoss waterfall tumbles in two enormous tires into the deep canyon below.


Go on a day tour of the Golden Circle. This is Iceland's most popular attraction. You'll visit Thingvellir, a national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site - famous for its beauty as well as history. From there, you will visit the geothermal area of Geysir, where you can see the geyser Strokkur erupt 20-40 metres up in the air, every few minutes.

Finally, you will visit Gullfoss waterfall, by many considered Iceland's most beautiful waterfall - its name means 'The Golden Falls.'

If you would like to relax rather than indulging in sporty activities such as snowmobiling or horseback riding on for this day, then you will be taken to Blue Lagoon at the end of the Golden Circle tour on this day rather than on Day 1.

Otherwise, your visit to the Blue Lagoon will be scheduled for your arrival or departure day instead, so you will have time to take full advantage of its restorative powers. The Lagoon is world-famous for its healing, mineral-rich waters - This is not a place you want to rush.

Finally, you'll spend another evening in Reykjavík, perhaps explore some of the city's exciting restaurants or go bar hopping among Reykjavík's favourite bars and nightclubs.


Day 3 - First Day of the South Coast


Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is one of Iceland's most breathtaking locations


Today, you'll start your trip along the South Coast of Iceland and take in all the beauty it has to offer and your first stop is at the waterfall Seljalandsfoss. This magnificent cascade falls over a concave cliff, making it possible to fully encircle the falling spring water.

Next up is another waterfall; the vastly different but equally as beautiful, Skógafoss. The ground underneath this stunning cascade is very flat which allows visitors to walk right up to the wall of water.

Today you will have the unique opportunity to hike up one of Iceland's many glaciers. This adventure is suitable for all over the age of 8 and is perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in the wild and icy Icelandic nature. Accompanied by a trained glacier guide, you will hike up Sólheimajökull glacier to see first-hand the bright blue crevasses and deep glacier moulins on top of this vast ice cap. 

Your last stop is at the black sands of the famous Reynisfjara beach where you can admire the strength of the North Atlantic sea as it crashes upon the shore. In the distance, you will see the oddly-shaped Dyrhólaey peninsula and if you are lucky, you might also spot a puffin or two.

You'll continue east until you arrive at your accommodations for the night in the beautiful Vatnajökull National Park.


Accommodation

Due to increased demand for travel services in Iceland and low availability, travel companies in Iceland can not guarantee specific accommodations. However, we can always provide you with the best available accommodation at the time of your booking. Below you can see our preferred partners for accommodation, Hótel Vatnajökull and Hótel Höfn. In the case of these hotels not being an option, an alternative of the same standard will be arranged.

Hótel Höfn

Standard private rooms with private bathroom in a 3-star hotel in the largest town in south-east Iceland. Breakfast is included.

Hotel Vatnajökull

Standard private rooms with private bathroom in a 3-star hotel close to Höfn. Breakfast is included.


Day 4 - Second Day of the South Coast


Join a hike onto Sólheimajökull glacier and enjoy the spectacular views!


Today you will visit Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, one of Iceland's most breathtaking locations. Here, giant icebergs, which have broken off a nearby glacier, float on the bright blue water before they make their way to the sea. 

If you want a closer looks at these bergs—and perhaps the seals which can often be found swimming in the icy water—you can add a boat tour on Jökulsárlón during the booking process. There are two types to choose from, a relaxing amphibious boat ride suitable for all ages, and a speedy zodiac boat for all those over the age of 10.

A short walk away from Jökulsárlón is a black beach covered with small icebergs which have washed up on shore. In the sunlight, these bergs glisten like precious stones, thus earning the location the nickname 'The Diamond Beach'.

After exploring the glacier lagoon and Diamond Beach, you will start making your way back to Reykjavík city where you will spend the night. En route, your local guide will stop at some of his favourite places in the countryside, providing you with a totally unique experience.


Day 5 - Last Day - Departure


Make the most of your last hours in Iceland by basking in the Blue Lagoon.


You'll get to spend your last day in Iceland exploring the capital, Reykjavík. Spend your final morning having a cup of coffee from a specialty roast shop or shopping for souvenirs. 

If you have a few hours to spare due to a late flight, you can book a whale watching tour from Reykjavík's Old Harbour on for this day, where you can admire these magnificent animals out at sea for one last beautiful memory of Iceland.

Transportation to the airport from Reykjavík is included. 

Have a comfortable flight home and come back soon!
