If you have only a limited amount of time but have plans to explore the southern shore of Iceland in luxury, look no further.
After you land at the airport, our driver will welcome you and drive you to the world-famous Blue Lagoon, where you will have the chance to relax after your flight.
On the next day, we will head to a beloved destination, the Golden Circle. At Þingvellir you will be able to learn about the local history, at Geysir you will see the most famous geyser in the world and at Gullfoss you will experience mother nature's true power. This activity will be continued by visiting a local gem, the Secret Lagoon, which is one of the oldest pools in Iceland (established in 1891) and still just as popular as back in the old days.
Let us head to the South afterward. Before we drive to the unique Reynisfjara black sand beach, we will stop at the Seljalandfoss waterfall and its famous neighbor, Skogafoss (as seen on "Game of Thrones"). At Reynisfjara we have the chance to meet hundreds of puffin families (depending on the season), apart from enjoying the extraordinary view. The beauty of Reynisfjara is unparalleled, once it was rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world. One of the highlights of this tour will conclude the day, a private glacier hike on the breathtaking Sólheimajökull glacier.
Lastly, our driver will drive you to the airport before your departure.
On the day of your arrival, your private guide will pick you up at the Airport. After a short ride, we arrive at the Blue Lagoon. There we will visit the Retreat Spa to relax after the flight. Afterward, we take the drive to the city to check-in in our Hotel.
It's time to head on the road. Today we explore the Golden Circle. Our first stop is at Þingvellir, the place of the first Icelandic parliament. The first parliament was established there in 930 AD and it is, therefore, the oldest one in Europe. Besides all the history you can also see the Mid-Atlantic ridge. This is the split of the tectonic plates that divides Europe from North America. After that, we stop at Geysir. This "water puddle" gives its name to all the other Geysers in the world. It erupts every 5-8min and it is truly a big spectacle. After a short ride, we arrive at Gullfoss, the golden waterfall. In the summertime, up to 130 000 liters per second are running down this powerful waterfall. In good weather conditions, we are also able to see Langjökull glacier. Before we drive to our hotel, we end the day with a visit to the Secret Lagoon. It was formed in 1891 and is still a popular place for all the locals in the area. It is therefore the oldest swimming pool in the country with a constant temperature of 38/40 °C, thanks to the hot waters from surrounding geothermal activity.
After your pick-up, we head out of the city. We shortly arrive in the countryside passing Hellisheiðarvirkjun, the geothermal power plant for the capital area. Our first stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall lays underneath the well-known Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that erupted in 2010. If conditions allow, we take a walk behind the waterfall’s curtain before paying a visit to its nearby cousin Gljúfrabúi, found hidden from view in the mountainside. After a short ride, we arrive at Skogafoss waterfall. Skogafoss was featured in "Game of Thrones" and it is said that one of the first settlers has buried a treasure chest behind it. Next up is Reynisfjara black sand beach. The beach was once rated as one of the 10 most beautiful places worldwide. In the summertime, hundreds of puffins are nesting here and the rock stacks called Reynisdrangar are standing picturesque in the ocean next to the beach. We top the day off with a private glacier hike at Sólheimajökull glacier.
On the last day, you will be picked up by a private driver and driven to the airport in time for your flight.
