You'll need to make your way to the starting point of each tour, so this is the perfect deal for those that want to enjoy a self-drive trip on Iceland's South Coast, and throw in a few memorable activities along the way.

On your third day, hike across a glacier at the stunning Skaftafell Nature Reserve inside Vatnajökull National Park.

Today you'll be snorkelling in the beautiful and clear waters of Silfra Ravine, situated within Þingvellir National Park, one of the stops of the Golden Circle sightseeing route.
You will meet your guide at the parking lot by Silfra fissure, where you will be suited up in a drysuit and given all necessary equipment such as a snorkelling mask and fins. The water in the fissure is glacial, so you'll also get a warm suit underneath your drysuit as well as neoprene gloves.
But due to the glacial element, you'll be rewarded with spectacular scenery and visibility of up to 100 metres. You'll spend 30-40 minutes snorkelling through the azure blue waters, being carried by a light current through the rift.
After a short walk back to the parking lot, you'll be greeted with hot chocolate and cookies. After that, you're free to spend the rest of the day sightseeing.
Today you will meet your guide in the village of Vík on the South Coast. From there you'll be transported in a Super Jeep along Iceland's older Ring Road, towards the highlands.
The beautiful but bumpy route takes you through black sand dunes and past some impressive mountains before you reach the ice cap of Mýrdalsjökull glacier which covers Katla volcano. Your guide will tell you stories of the volcano and the evil witch after which the volcano is named.
Once there, you'll be given crampons and a helmet so you'll have stable footings on the ice. You'll then walk through the jet-black plains to the beautiful ice caves which are constantly changing in size and shape. You'll certainly see some white, black and blue ice as you explore a labyrinth of ice tunnels and caves of varying sizes. You'll learn about the glacier and the caves from your guide, so be sure to use this time to ask any questions as well.
These ice caves are the only natural glacier ice caves that can be visited both in summer as well as winter. After the tour, you'll be dropped off back in Vík where you can continue your exploration of the South Coast.
Today you'll be glacier hiking on a glacier tongue of the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull! You'll meet your guide at Skaftafell Nature Reserve who will take you to the edge of the glacier, where you will receive your crampons, helmet, harness and ice axe.
The scenery is fantastic, with enormous white, blue and black ice surrounded by mountains and sand fields. Visitors are sure to feel the connection with Mother Nature and be in awe of the unfathomable size of the glacier they're presented with. You'll see firsthand the constant changes of the environment, and witness impressive ice formations, blue ice in cracks and crevasses and learn about this frosty landscape from your experienced guide.
The weather changes quickly in Iceland, so don't be caught unawares. It is always better to bring a sweater or dress in layers which you can remove if you are too warm.
Note that Icelandic roads and pavements can be slippery in the wintertime. We recommend you bring shoes with slip-resistant soles or ice-grip shoe covers if you are visiting in the winter. The covers can be purchased in most supermarkets and gas stations around the country.
Please note that this combo is 'meet on location', meaning you will have to make your own way to the meeting point for each tour.
