The Golden Circle

Day one and your tour begins with your expert tour guide picking you up in Iceland’s capital Reykjavík to embark on your first adventure, the Golden Circle Route.

South Coast

Today you will travel along the picturesque South Coast. Your first stops will be at two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. The first, Seljalandsfoss, cascades from the great heights of the interior; its unique feature is the small cavern that lies behind it which allows you to walk completely around it.

The next waterfall is called Skógarfoss which falls i...

Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon

Your next destination will be the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón with a few surprise stops along the way chosen by your guide depending on the weather and the group’s interests. Jökulsárlon is formed by the receding glacial tongue Breiðamerkurjökull where huge chunks of ice break away and float lazily out to sea. No one iceberg is the same and each is characteri...

As well as being known for its dramatic fjords, this area is characterised by its breathtaking beaches, littered with multi-coloured pebbles and rocks.

The e...

Your first stop of the day will be the magnificent Dettifoss waterfall, the most powerful in Europe. The spray of this gigantic natural feature can be seen far before you reach the falls itself. Its awe-inspiring character has...

Day 6
Goðafoss waterfall, onyl 12 metres in height, but wide and heavy in flow, offers a stunning vista, regardless of season.
