This tour is all-inclusive, making the most of a short stay in Iceland. It includes accommodation for 4 nights and tours of all the best locations between the Blue Lagoon on the Reykjanes peninsula to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the nearby Diamond Beach. You will also hike on a glacier with a gorgeous view of the South Coast.

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 go horseback riding through a geothermal field near Gullfoss and try the silky-smooth tölt, a gait known only by the Icelandic horse. For more action, go snowmobiling on top of a nearby 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 centre 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 of the capital. 

Enjoy the long summer days and explore all the best the country has to offer on this popular trip! Reserve early to secure your spot. Check availability by choosing a date.

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 m (65-131 ft) 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 favorite bars and nightclubs.

Day 3 - First Day of the South Coast

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

Start your trip along the south coast of Iceland and take in all the beauty it has to offer.  First stop is at the black sands of the infamous Reynisfjara beach where you can admire the strength of the North Atlantic sea. Be careful to stay at least 20-30 metres away from the unpredictable and deadly surf.

Then, you'll make a stop in the cute Icelandic village Vík to stock up on snacks and finally end up at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, one of Iceland's most breathtaking locations. Nearby is the Diamond Beach: a black beach covered with icebergs that resemble diamonds glistening in the sun.

After you've spent a bit of time enjoying the scenery around the glacier lagoon and the Diamond Beach, and hopefully spotted a few seals playing on the icebergs as well, we'll head to our accommodation for the night.

You'll spend the night in a hotel on the south coast between the glacier lagoon and the village of Vík.

Day 4 - Second Day of the South Coast

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

Today you'll go hiking on a glacier!

Then, you'll head towards Sólheimajökull glacier tongue where you will go glacier hiking - just remember to bring good hiking boots that crampons will fit on. Safety is always paramount in the wilds of Iceland. You'll have a spectacular view on a clear day from the glacier of the beautiful Icelandic nature. We'll spend about 90 minutes on the glacier, exploring the gorgeous ice.

During the drive back to Reykjavík, you'll make a stop by the stunning waterfalls Seljalandsfoss, Gljúfrabúi and Skógafoss on the way. Your guide will also make a stop at a hidden cave before reaching Reykjavík in the late evening.

You'll spend your last night in Reykjavík.

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!
