Visit the famous Golden Circle, discover the diverse attractions of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and enter an authentic ice cave, all without the hassle of organizing each tour yourself. Nature-lovers wanting to see the best of Iceland without breaking the bank should grab this opportunity now.
With this tour bundle, you can visit some of Iceland’s most beautiful regions while still keeping a base in Reykjavík city. This combo includes three separate tours that you can take on three separate days, allowing you to spend your evenings exploring the great capital city.
On your first tour, you will visit the famous Golden Circle sightseeing route, including stops at Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall. Not only that, but you will also see some lesser-known attractions such as Faxi waterfall, Efstidalur farm, and Kerið crater lake.
Your second tour will take you to the mystical Snæfellsnes Peninsula, a 56-mile (90-kilometer) stretch of land filled with black pebble beaches, dramatic coastlines, strangely shaped mountains, charming fishing villages, and a majestic glacier volcano.
The third tour will take you through the South Coast, past volcanic peaks, white glaciers, black sand coastline, and iconic waterfalls, to Mýrdalsjökull glacier, where you’ll visit an authentic ice cave. Book this wallet-friendly combo now and discover the beauty of Iceland, from dramatic mountain ridges and erupting geysers to sparkling ice caves in majestic glaciers. Check availability by choosing a date.
You’ll start at the birthplace of Iceland’s parliament, Þingvellir National Park. Aside from being the place where Viking settlers would gather and set the laws of the land over a thousand years ago, the park is mainly known for its geology. It is set in a rift valley, between two tectonic plates that are slowly drifting apart, which causes the landscape around to tear up and create countless cracks and fissures that traverse the area.
Next up is the waterfall Gullfoss. Meltwater from Iceland’s second-largest glacier, Langjökull, rushes forth before plunging into an ancient canyon, creating this majestic cascade in the process. You’ll surely be mesmerized as you watch this beautiful cascade from one of two observation decks while listening to the thundering noises of millions of liters hitting the bottom of the canyon.
The last stop on the Golden Circle route is the geothermal area of Geysir, home of bubbling mud pools, hot springs, and erupting geysers. Here you’ll see the geyser Strokkur explode in a large water column every few minutes. Keep your camera on hand! A selfie with Strokkur is an amazing souvenir.
Before you head back to Reykjavík, you will make a couple of more stops. One of which will be at the waterfall Faxi, a hidden gem most people overlook. Although it is not as big as Gullfoss, it is both beautiful and serene. Then, if you want, you will visit the 3000-year old volcanic crater lake, Kerið, most recognized by its azure blue water and fiery red walls.
You’ll return to Reykjavík in the evening. Please note that accommodations are not included with this tour combo.
Your first stop today is at the beach Ytri-Tunga. Unlike most Icelandic beaches, this one doesn’t have black sands, but white or golden. The view over Faxaflói Bay to the south is nothing short of magnificent, and you’ll also see the mountain ridges of Snæfellsnes all the way to the Snæfellsjökull glacier. You should also keep an eye out for some resident seals as they are known to lounge on the sands.
From there, you’ll stop at the small fishing hamlet of Arnarstapi to see its adorable houses and dramatic coastal view before you visit the black pebble beach of Djúpalónssandur. To get to the beach, you’ll have to walk through a beautiful, natural maze of lava rock formations.
Fans of the HBO series Game of Thrones might recognize your next stop, the arrowhead-shaped mountain Kirkjufell which can be found ‘North of the Wall’ in the show. The beautiful mountain and nearby waterfall is the perfect spot to capture amazing photos of the stunning Icelandic nature.
You’ll make a few more stops along the route where you’ll see just how diverse the Icelandic nature can be before returning to your accommodations in Reykjavík in the evening.
En route to the glacier, you’ll stop at the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is fed by the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano glacier. The cascade falls over a concave cliff, and so you can follow a little path that leads you behind the falling springwater.
On the way to the glacier Mýrdalsjökull, you’ll travel over plains of black volcanic sands, and your guide will tell you about your surrounding environment as well as the legend of the witch Katla. Once at the glacier, you’ll put on crampons and a helmet, and the guide will lead you to the cave.
As you enter the cave, shimmering blue ice with dark strips of volcanic ashes will greet you. Inside, you’ll see otherworldly ice sculptures and glittering tunnels, providing you with some fantastic photo opportunities.
Once you’ve explored the cave to the fullest, you’ll return to your vehicle and head back to Reykjavík city.
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.
