To start of your amazing adventure you will drive along the famous Golden circle which is with out a doubt the most popular day tour in Iceland. Many of Iceland's most iconic attractions are situated along this route, including Þingvellir National Park, the spouting hot spring Strokkur and Gullfoss waterfall. To add something unique to your experience you will also visit the volcanic crater called Kerid. The crater is 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep. In the bottom of the crater there is a 14m deep lake which makes the attraction all the more stunning. You will then proceed along the South coast of Iceland towards your accommodation for the night. The guesthouse is located very near the Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
Today you will explore the beautiful south coast of Iceland and go hiking on Solheimajökull glacier. The south coast holds many of the most beautiful places in Iceland. A great combination of Ice, lava fields, lagoons, huge mountains, volcanoes and rough black sand coastline. There are also plenty of stunning waterfalls in the area for example Skógafoss, Irafoss and the secret waterfall Kvernufoss. In addition to the waterfalls mentioned, the bus will also make a stop at the very popular Reynisfjara black sand beach.
The highlight of the day is, without a doubt, a unique glacier hike in Solheimajokull under the guidance of experienced, specially trained guides. The hike takes about 1,5 hours in total and you will be provided with all necessary safety equipment.Your last stops of the day will be by the beautiful Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the diamond beach.
You will spend the night in a guesthouse in the south east of Iceland.
The first stop of the day will be at the mountain Vestrahorn which is one of the best spots for photos in Iceland. You will then proceed to drive the dramatic, long, narrow fjords of the East coast through the picture-postcard fishing villages and along the seemingly never-ending roads that cross the region, providing beautiful sweeping views with steep mountains towering just behind the houses.
On the way the bus will also stop at Petra's Stone museum where you can see a unique collection of natural stones collected in the area.
You will spend the night in East Iceland.
You will start your day by driving through the highlands from the East to the North of Iceland, discovering the magnificent Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. You will then proceed to Lake Mývatn on of the wonders of Iceland. the area is a unique natural environment created in a lava eruption 2300 years ago. Here you can find geothermal hot springs, caves with steaming waters, blue waters, big rock formations, unique bird life and fauna. After a busy day of exploring you will relax in the Myvatn natural baths.
You will spend the night in a nice guesthouse in North Iceland
The first destination of the day will be Húsavik village which is regarded the capital of the whale watching in Europe. The Skjalfandi bay just outside Husavik is a fantastic place to view these gentle giants and sightings are very common. Your whale watching tour will take about 3 hours. After the whale watching tour you will visit the great waterfall Godafoss before driving to Akureyri, the biggest town in the North where you will get a chance to stretch your legs for a little bit and see the sights. From Akureyri there is about a two hour ride to the Guesthouse in the North West.
The first stop of the day will be the rock Hvítserkur which is a unique formation and a great place for photos. You will then drive to the small fishing village of Hvammstangi where you will visit the seal center. There you will get information about these beautiful creatures before watching them in their natural habitat by the coastline. Afterwards you will drive through the mountain pass, Holtavörðuheiði, and explore the Borgarfjordur area. There you will see the great Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 m (almost 300 ft!) across the Hallmundarhraun lava field. Literally a stone's throw upstream from Hraunfossar, there is another waterfall called Barnafoss. Its name, "the waterfall of the children," comes from an accident which is said to have taken place here in a previous century. There was a natural bridge over the waterfall, and two children from a nearby farm fell to their deaths crossing the river on the bridge. Afterwards, the grief-stricken mother had the bridge destroyed. Finally, you will take in the sights at Deildartunguhver, the most powerful hot spring in Europe. You will spend the night in the Borgarfjordur area.
Today you'll visit the magical Snæfellsnes peninsula. The crown jewel of the area is Snæfellsjökull volcano, wearing a magnificent crown of ice. It is this place that Jules Verne chose as the entrance to the earth's core in Journey to the Center of the Earth. At Ytri-Tunga, a charming farm with a nearby beach that is a popular seal colony, animal lovers will enjoy seeing their cute faces as they sunbathe and play in the surf.
Arnarstapi and Hellnar are in a lovely coastal area with a natural harbor. Beautiful rock formations decorate the coastline, spotted with green-and-yellow moss, and you can stroll along the cliffs here and breathe in the refreshing sea air. Look for Lóndrangar, two black basalt columns marking the coast, so tall they can be seen from the road! Djúpalónssandur is another gorgeous black beach, where the air is filled with the sounds of birds circling the cliffs and the ocean waves hitting the sand.
At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find four large, smooth stones. They are “lifting stones,” used to measure the strength of fishermen that once worked and lived along the coasts here.
At the famous Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum, you'll see treasures and tools collected during a lifetime at sea. There may even be "fresh" hákarl (the famous “rotten shark”) to try, dried in a shed behind the museum several times per year, along with a taste of Icelandic cumin schnapps to wash it down.
At your last stop, Kirkjufell mountain rises out of the green hills, surrounded by trickling rivers. This is one of the most popular photography spots in Iceland, so be sure to get a picture for your own collection!
Arrival in Reykjavik is estimated to be around 20.30 pm.
