Personal guidance in a small group of max 7 pers.

After a 45 min drive east of Reykjavík first stop is at Thingvellir National Park.

This site is remarkable for many reasons, but mostly for being a geological wonder, a historical site with fantastic nature that boosts the largest natural lake in Iceland.

From Thingvellir we continue further east to the Geysir Hot Spring area, where the hot spring Strokkur spouts boiling hot water 20-30 meters up in to the sky every 5-7 minutes. After taking in the wonders of the Geysir hot spring area we continue to Gullfoss Waterfall. The glacial river originates in Langjökull Glacier and runs as Hvítá River. From Gullfoss Waterfall we head down to the South Coast of Iceland.

We stop at the famous volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which erupted in the spring of 2010 causing havoc in airtraffic.

Further east is Skogafoss one of Icleand’s majestic waterfalls 25 meters wide with a drop of 60 meters.

The glacier tongue of Solheimajokull is the southwestern outlet of the Myrdalsjokull glacier holding the volcano Katla the largest caldera in Iceland. The area is marked by rugged and breath taking rock formations.

Reynisfjara at the Black Beach and the rock formations at Dyrholaey is a must see. The beach is surrounded by basalt columns and cliffs scattered with caves. The Dyrholaey rock formation is about 120 metres high and it is a unique natural formation. It is the southernmost part of Iceland -home to a rich variety of birdlife, among other species you could see fulmar, guillemot, razorbill, gannet and various types of seagulls - during the summer you will also see the large puffin colony living there. On the way back we stop at Seljalandsfoss and Gljufrabui waterfall. You can walk behind the beautiful waterfall Seljalandsfoss and explore Gljufrabui inside a cave.

Aurora Borealis: ( september - april ) By the time we head back to Reykjavík and it starts to get dark we can enjoy the Northern Lights in favorable conditions as we drive through the farmlands of the south coast.

In summer we drive into the Icelandic golden sunset on our way back to the city.

Reviews

We wanted to see as much as humanly possible in one day, and this tour delivered perfectly. We saw everything on our wish list, yet never felt rushed. Plus, we got to ride in the comfort of a luxury SUV, which was key since we covered 400+ miles in 11 hours. Our tour guide, Barney, was relaxed, informative and very accommodating. I highly recommend this tour if you want to see A LOT during a brief trip to Iceland.

Excellent intro to iceland, saw lots. However the best bit was the guide .. he was quiet, relaxed and informative .. things he said have really made sense since the tour .. I've found myself thinking .. oh yes .. that's what he said ..
