Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Into the Glacier & Lava Tube Caving

3 day sightseeing tour | Húsafell, the Golden Circle and the South Coast

At 8:00 AM, your guide will pick you up at your accommodation and the group will depart Reykjavík. The first objective is to drive north of Reykjavík towards one of the most relaxing spots on the southwest corner of Iceland, Húsafell. A visit to Barnafossar & Hraunfossar waterfalls will be first on the agenda. In the afternoon, you can join an excursion to the biggest Ice cave in Iceland. In the afternoon, you’ll explore the largest Ice cave in Iceland, carved into Lanjökull glacier, measuring 600 m (1,968 ft). In the evening, you'll be taken to your accommodation in the area for a well-deserved dinner and relaxation in the countryside.

If you like, you can spend the afternoon and early evening exploring the Víðgelmir lava tube, which is Iceland’s longest natural lava tube. This tube was formed in 900 AD, and evidence of human habitation here, during the Viking Age, has been discovered (the artifacts are now available to view in the National Museum of Iceland). These caves were probably used by outlaws hiding from their sentence of exile.

Day 2 - The Golden Circle

3 day sightseeing tour | Húsafell, the Golden Circle and the South Coast

Today it’s time to enjoy the most popular sightseeing tour in Iceland, the Golden Circle. The three attractions are: Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss waterfall. Take the opportunity and see the meeting place of the tectonic plates and walk between them as they are slowly pulled apart by the forces of the earth's movement. This is also the site of the ancient Icelandic parliament, which is why the site was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its contribution to world culture.

At Geysir geothermal area, you will find two geysirs which spout boiling water high into the air. Geysir, the fountain for which the site was named, has been active for 10,000 years and is now mostly asleep, waking every few years to put on one last show. Strokkur, however, is hugely active and erupts every 10 minutes with a fountain of 40 m (131 ft). In addition, there are as many as 30 hot springs here, as well as smoking fumaroles and sizzling vents.

Last, you'll see the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall. At the end of the day, you will make your way to your accommodation for dinner and evening relaxation.

Day 3 - South coast & Glacier hiking

3 day sightseeing tour | Húsafell, the Golden Circle and the South Coast

The South coast of Iceland offers the highlight of Icelandic nature. Waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers and black sand beaches. Driving along the south coast of Iceland is majestic, with small villages and history. The first stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall, one of Iceland´s most popular sights. As the tour drives along the South coast, the next stop is Skogar waterfall for relaxing view of the waterfall. After lunch, we will go for a 1,5 hour, easy glacier walk with certified guide and explore the glacial wonder world. In the afternoon, we drive back to Reykjavík where everyone will be dropped off at a preffered accommodation.
