See the most popular attractions in Iceland, including Reykjavík, the Golden Circle, the Blue Lagoon, the South Coast and Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon on this 5-day trip! This tour is for anyone who would like to relax on their vacation and let someone else take care of the details. 

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!

We definitely had a great experience: Iceland is a wonder to see, nothing can compare with its breathtaking landscapes and pristine nature. This tour takes you to the most renowned places, such as the golden circle, the southern part with the coast and glaciers, and of course the blue lagoon (to end the trip with a nice relaxing bath). I would definitely like to bring my family here next time.

Great trip! Beautiful landscape with well balanced adventurous activities. Fun, professional, and reliable local tour guides would make your trip unforgettable. This package would efficiently take you to the wonderful places you shouldnt't miss in Iceland. Strongly recommended. I will definitely visit again :)

Such a great trip! I took the trip from 8/31 to 9/4, and our guides to golden circle and south coast are both pretty good, especially Kristjan Logason, who is friendly, professional, and made the south coast trip a lot of fun! I appreciate the contact is easy and responsive, and love the pick-up and drop-off from/to the airport. The hotel selected for me was pretty decent (Hotel Klettur), and the trip was smooth and free of hazard. I will book again through this site if I go to Iceland again (which I think I will).

Our anniversary celebration trip and first time to Iceland was a blast! We picked this 5-day program and stayed 3 more days in a different hotel CenterHotel Arnahvoll near Harpa, added also the Into the Volcano and Best Value Landmannalaugar day tours. Through these tours, we had a great experience to explore with enough flexibility southern part of the country in late August. The agent at Guide to Iceland, Melkorka Edda, did a great job in helping us adjust some schedules, such as arranging the Blue Lagoon visit right off our early arrival in day one. We did not know ahead of time this 5-day program was actually patched together with a few independent tours operated by different companies, but everything was arranged smoothly with god efficiency and communications. We look forward to our next trip for the Northern part of the country and Ice Caves!

It was our first time to trip to Iceland. Thanks to Guide to Iceland, we could enjoy great and wonderful experiance, and warmest hospitality. The tour includes plenty of highlights, a little bit busy, though. We hope to come back again.

Amazing experience! At first we were thinking about renting a car and exploring Iceland on our own, yet eventually decided to book a guided tour with Guide to Iceland. And this was the best decision ever! Our travel agent David Kristjansson made sure that we have the best itinerary possible. All accommodations were modern and included fresh and tasty breakfast choices. As to tours- they were booked with "Trolls" and "NiceTravel" companies. The first excursion- Golden circle -was guided by an Icelander-Fannar- very nice and funny young man who filled our excursion with numerous peculiar facts and stories. We made extra stops that were not on the plan and tasted delicious handmade ice cream! The South Coast adventure was led by a wonderful couple - Lucia and David. They made us feel special and answered all questions we could possibly have about waterfalls, glaciers and volcanoes. They made sure that we were all safe when hiking on the glacier and tirelessly assisted in taking hundreds of pictures. We also stopped at local restaurants to taste some incredible Icelandic food like lamb soup, arctic char, baked cod. Overall I can confidently recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get the best taste of Icelandic nature, history and culture in less than a week! You will not regret!)

This was our first time to Iceland. It was amazing. We had great fun in Blue Lagoons and very relaxing. The accommodation was well arranged nearby the downtown. It was very convenient to visit the city life. The tour guides are very professional. We have experience the beauty of Iceland; the waterfalls, nature, glacier hiking........can't forget. Thanks to Guide to Iceland, hopefully we will come again next time for the northern light!

This was a great trip and booking through Guide to Iceland made it incredibly easy. All you need to do is print out the vouchers and show up on time! My favorite parts of the 5 day package: South Coast tour and Snowmobiling on the glacier. It was very refreshing to get outside of busy city life and see the wonderful and powerful nature of Iceland. I recommend the trip and hope to be back one day!

The experience of Iceland is not to be believed - beauty and wonder, wildness, wilderness, city life, civility and camaraderie. The accommodations were luxurious, the tours or well-balanced and informative (and 100% on time). Our agent Embla pulled together an amazing package that showed us so much of this fabled land in so few days. She and everyone at Guide to Iceland responded quickly and personally to the smallest concerns, one could not hope for a better "travel partner." This was our first trip to Iceland, and we are already planning our next. And as we plan our next trip, we will definitely return to Guide to Iceland. Thanks so much for everything! 10 out of 10.

This was my second time visiting Iceland. The first time we came in winter and booked a 7 day tour with Guide to Iceland. That trip was so great that we decided to go for this one now. Again, this company did not disappoint. We booked fairly late so were worried about finding good accommodation. Fortunately, they had booked some very nice hotels in advance so that did not turn out to be a problem. The tours were great and we chose to to go inside a volcano too which was an amazing experience. Again, can highly recommend reserving with this company. This is high quality service for a reasonable price (compared to Iceland).
