Then it is off to see the sights of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, with its iconic mountains, beautiful waterfalls, and impressive lava fields. The area is full of contrasts, from the black pebble beach of Djúpalónssandur to the crisp white ice perched on top of Snæfellsjökull glacier.

Day 1 - Golden Circle and a Farm Visit
You'll spend the day with a small group on a mini-bus exploration of the Golden Circle. After being picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík, you'll head towards Þingvellir National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can admire both beautiful nature, as well as learn about Iceland's extraordinary geology and Viking history.
Your next destination is the 'Golden Falls' or Gullfoss waterfall. After admiring the impressive two-tiered waterfall plunging into a canyon, it's time to watch the water go the opposite direction as it shoots out of the ground at the geothermal area of Geysir. Here the geyser Strokkur erupts every few minutes, shooting water 49-67 feet (15-20 meters) into the air!
Your final stop will be at the crater lake Kerið. Note that there is a small entrance fee to enter Kerið, which is not included in the price but can be added during booking.
Enjoy a smooth ride filled with Icelandic music back to your accommodation at the end of the day.
Day 2 - Snaefellsnes Peninsula
Today you'll be visiting the gorgeous Snæfellsnes peninsula in West Iceland. You'll be picked up from your accommodation before heading towards an area that many people call 'Iceland in miniature' due to the diverse sights found there.
Snæfellsnes peninsula encompasses a volcano, a glacier, lava fields, waterfalls, black sand beaches, white sand beaches, iconic mountains and rock formations, and sweeping ocean views. And this tour highlights all of these things, with your first stop at Ytri Tunga, a red-tinted white sand beach, where you might spot a seal or two.
You'll stop at the serene fishing villages of Arnarstapi and Búðir, with the white glacier of Snæfellsjökull looming above. You'll also get to admire the stunning Lóndrangar cliffs before stopping at the black pebble beach of Djúpalónssandur. And to top off the day, you can admire the cone-shaped Kirkjufell mountain and nearby waterfall.
This area is full of birdlife, and the mountains you'll see are famous from both literature and the TV screen. Snæfellsjökull glacier is known as the entry to the Earth's core in Jules Verne's classic 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth', and Kirkjufell mountain is known as 'the mountain shaped like an arrowhead' from Game of Thrones.
After an eventful day, you'll be returned back to your accommodation in Reykjavík.
Day 3 - Go Inside a Magma Chamber
Today you'll be doing something truly unique that's only possible in one place in the world. You'll be entering a volcano, going deep into an enormous magma chamber!
You'll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík and driven just outside of the city, for about 30 minutes to Bláfjöll, or 'The Blue Mountains'. From a hut there, you'll need to walk for approximately one hour to the entry of the Þríhnúkagígur volcano. The hike is 3.2 km or 2 miles, and you want to be sure to be wearing good hiking boots and warm clothing. Inside the cave, it's rather chilly, or about 5-6°C / 42-43°F.
You will then descend 650 feet (198 meters) into the ground in an elevator. The journey going down into the crater takes around 6 minutes. When you reach the bottom, you'll have half an hour to take in your colorful surroundings - in a space wide enough to fit three basketball courts and tall enough to fit the Statue of Liberty easily.
This magma chamber is truly unique because most magma chambers solidify after an eruption, but this one, for some reason, drained away, leaving this unimaginably beautiful location.
When you've taken the lift back up and hiked back to the base hut, a warm Icelandic meat soup will await you indoors, along with some beverages and snacks. After that, you'll be transported back to your accommodation in Reykjavík.
What to bring
Good to know
Lunch is not provided but you will be able to purchase food/snack in restaurants and shops in the area during the Golden Circle and Snæfellsnes tours.
The weather changes quickly in Iceland, so don't be caught unawares. It is a good idea to bring a sweater or dress in layers which you can remove if you get too warm for the caving tour.
Wearing cotton or jeans as the outer layer during your trip to the Þríhnjúkagígur volcano tour is not allowed. Please wear suitable waterproof clothes and sturdy hiking shoes for this trip. It’s always the same temperature inside the crater – about 5–6°C (42–43°F). The Þríhnjúkagígur volcano tour involves a hike of approximately 3 km (2 miles) each way. The walk usually takes around 45–50 minutes (depending on the condition of people in the group). A guide will be with you at all times during the walk.
