Based on 6 traveller reviews

Grab this adventure-packed winter package in Iceland, and you'll be ticking some things off your wish list for sure! This package offers the most popular activities and attractions when Iceland is at its wintry best.

Along with famous locations such as the Golden Circle, Kirkjufell on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon at Vatnajökull National Park, we'll take you to the remote and wild Landmannalaugar highlands. There you can admire the area's colourful rhyolite mountains in pristine winter beauty, when they are ringed with frost and snow.

A thrilling snowmobile ride is included in the 3-day tour of Landmannalaugar, which is paired with total relaxation at a wild hot spring in the highlands, surrounded by snow. There can hardly be a more fitting location to enjoy the Northern Lights at night.

You will explore a natural blue ice cave underneath the 1000-year-old Vatnajökull glacier during your tour to the south coast. During your trip to Snæfellsnes peninsula in west Iceland, you will have the option of exploring the Vatnshellir lava cave for a small additional fee, and compare its beauty to the ice cave. 

With this package, you will be able to experience Icelandic nature as the locals do. Get on a Superjeep with mammoth tires and head to the heart of this country with otherworldly landscapes. You'll experience all of this in small groups, with highly professional tour guides that will help you find the elusive Northern Lights.

If all this wasn't enough, you can also add more excitement during the booking process. Other possibilities include a 2-hour horseback riding tour in the countryside around Reykjavik on the smooth-gaited Icelandic horse, a choice of helicopter tours for unforgettable views, or a day trip to Mývatn in the north (including flights). 

All accommodation is included, and the detailed itinerary can be found below.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival - Blue Lagoon and Reykjavik




Your winter adventure begins as soon as you land. The international airport is in Keflavík, on the Reykjanes peninsula, and the 40-minute drive to the capital city of Reykjavík will take you through an otherworldly, lunar landscape. You'll pass by a black lava field covered with moss and possibly snow.

Your accommodation will be a cosy hotel in Reykjavík's city centre, so you can start exploring this quirky city straightaway.

If your flight arrives early, you can even choose to soak in the Blue Lagoon before you reach Reykjavík. This milky-blue hot spring stays warm all year round and its natural silica mud does wonders for your skin! A perfect way to relax after your flight. If your flight arrives late, the Blue Lagoon trip will be arranged on a different day and instead you can spend your evening in one of Reykjavík's top restaurants, admire its colourful houses and soak in the Nordic atmosphere.

If you like, take a complimentary Northern Lights tour in the evening. You may choose what kind of Northern Lights experience you prefer: By boat or by bus. Go for the boat tour in the Old Harbour, to see the dancing lights over the ocean while the wind plays with your hair, or choose a bus tour to head out into the countryside under cover of darkness and watch for glimmers of colour against a backdrop of the Icelandic wilderness.

You'll spend the night in Reykjavik.


Day 2 - The South Coast




The nature extravaganza officially kicks off today. In the next 8 days, you will spend 2 days traveling down the south coast along the Ring Road, 3 days along the Golden Circle and Landmannalaugar highlands route, and another 2 days exploring Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west wrapped up by a free day in the capital of Reykjavik.

Please note that the sequence of those trips will depend on which day of the week you land, so you might spend your day in Reykjavík on day 2, followed by the national park days, or vice versa and have the free day in Reykjavik on day 9, before your departure day.

On your first day along the south coast, you'll see some beautiful waterfalls, notably Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Seljalandsfoss can be seen from the ring road, as this high and narrow waterfall plunges into a small pond underneath. You'll be able to walk the path behind the waterfall and get great views of the waterfall, just remember to take care as the path might be icy and slippery!

Nearby is Skógafoss, another stunning waterfall measuring 60 m (197 ft) high and 25 m (82 ft) wide. The infamous volcano Eyjafjallajökull looms high above the waterfall.

You'll continue towards a black sandy beach called Reynisfjara, where you'll get a view of the Atlantic Ocean's powerful waves. This is a stunning location but equally dangerous. Be careful not to go too close to the waves as they can sweep you out to sea in seconds! Recommended distance is about 20 metres away. You'll also have a view of Reynisdrangar rocks, basalt columns which stand out in the pounding surf.

There will be a lunch break before heading further east towards Vatnajökull glacier, Europe's largest glacier. You'll make a stop inside Vatnajökull National Park, at Skaftafell Nature Reserve where you'll get magnificent views of the glacier itself.

Finally, you'll go to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, filled with floating icebergs that have broken off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. Right next to the lagoon is a black sand beach covered in icebergs. The ice lying on the sands glistens when the sun's rays hit it, giving this area the name Diamond Beach.

You'll search for the Northern Lights in the evening if conditions are favourable.

Accommodation is arranged in a country hotel either near Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon or Skaftafell Nature Reserve.


Day 3 - The Natural Ice Cave in Vatnajökull




The second day of the 2-day tour of the south coast includes a blue ice cave exploration.

Today’s activity will be one of the rarest experiences in Iceland, a real wintertime treat. You'll explore a natural ice cave. To get there, jump into a modified SUV able to handle the icy winter driving, to take you to Vatnajökull glacier. There is a short hike from the parking area to the cave itself, so be prepared to walk and wear sturdy hiking boots. It’s best if they come up over the ankle so that your feet stay dry all day.

No two ice caves are the same, and there is no telling where or when one might appear. The same is true for when they melt in the spring. Once a cave is gone, it is gone forever, creating a one-of-a-kind experience for each cave.

Every year, specialists scour the area around the glacier, looking for ice caves which are safe to enter. These experts know when the caves are forming and when they are likely to disappear, as weather changes cause the ice cave to melt, refreeze, contract and expand each day.

You'll spend at least 45 minutes within the ice cave so make sure that you dress warmly! This leaves you plenty of time to admire the blue crystalline walls of the cave and take pictures of the most impressive ice sculptures you find. You'll be provided with all the necessary safety equipment, including a helmet, so wear a winter hat that can fit under the helmet.

After your exploration of the cave, you'll return to Reykjavik. On the way, you'll make a second stop at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to view it in the changing light of mid-afternoon. You might also see seals playing on the ice in the sunshine.

As always, in the evening you can choose to join another Northern Lights tour, and your guide will make every effort to anticipate the Northern Lights forecast and give you a good experience. You’ll spend the night in Reykjavík.


Day 4 - Landmannalaugar




Again, please note that the arrangement of your tours will depend on which day of the week you arrive in Iceland, so you might spend your first day in Reykjavík and begin this tour with the 2-day journey to the south coast or your 2-day journey to Snæfellsnes peninsula. At other times, you may begin in Reykjavik and immediately depart for a 3-day tour into the Icelandic highlands instead.

The following description is for the first day of the 3-day Landmannalaugar tour:

You'll be picked up at your hotel in Reykjavík and driven towards the valley of Þjórsárdalur. From there, you'll have a view of Hekla, one of Iceland's most famous volcanoes. It's known as "the Gateway to Hell.' It is still active, and last erupted in the year 2000.

You'll be driving along Þjórsá river, Iceland's longest river towards Hjálparfoss waterfall. The name of the falls translates to Helping Falls, as it was the last lush area before entering the large, sandy desert Sprengisandur during the Viking Age. People would take the opportunity offered by this green place to let their horses graze one final time.

You'll have lunch at Hrauneyjar Highland Centre, located just before the real highlands of Fjallabak Nature Reserve.

The drive takes you through vast lava fields covered by snow, past Lake Hnausapollur and Lake Ljótipollur, to a stop at Lake Frostastaðavatn. When the weather is still, the surrounding mountains and strange rock formations are beautifully mirrored in the lake.

Finally, you'll reach Landmannalaugar. The area will probably be covered in snow, but the steep rhyolite mountains and rough lava fields will still be visible. You'll also be able to see the geothermal activity of the hot springs and naturally heated rivers crisscrossing the land at every turn.

After the drive, you can relax in the geothermal pool while your driver/guide prepares dinner. You'll be provided with a proper Icelandic meal, from healthy Icelandic ingredients. Don't forget to watch for the Northern Lights in the evening, if the sky is clear. Even if the auroras don't show up, it is still spectacular to view the stars shining so brightly, far from man-made light pollution.

Please note that the mountain lodge where you'll be sleeping is very basic and rustic. You won't be getting a private en-suite room here! The bathrooms are not even in the same building but in an adjacent smaller building.

The two-story highland lodge is heated and kept warm all year round. Downstairs, there is a spacious sleeping area with bunk beds, a spacious kitchen, and a cozy sitting area. Upstairs, there are three separate sleeping areas. The lodge is heated with geothermal heat, and the kitchen is equipped with gas.


Day 5 - Snowmobiling, Hiking or Geothermal Pool




During breakfast, the day will be planned according to snow conditions, the weather, and your personal preferences. You might want to go for a snowmobile tour in the area, a hike to the numerous interesting locations nearby or take a ride with your guide in the modified Superjeep to nearby lakes and exotic places. Or even, if you are in the mood, relaxing in the hot pool outside and enjoying the peace and quiet.

If you begin your day with bathing in the pool before breakfast, you might start wondering about the geothermal heat in the area. The mountains encircling this area are mostly formed from magma which accumulated in the magma chamber of a volcano located by the glacier of Torfajökull south of Landmannalaugar. The Torfajökull area is the country's second largest high-temperature geothermal area.

In the evening, your accommodation will once more be at the mountain lodge. You'll eat a delicious barbecue dinner, enjoy life in the lodge, embrace the solitude and, of course, the hot pool outside is open around the clock. As always, your group will be looking out for the Northern Lights!


Day 6 - The Golden Circle




After breakfast, you'll leave the peacefulness of Landmannalaugar and head for Hrauneyjar where you'll stop for lunch. From there, you'll drive back through Thjorsardalur on to the Golden Circle route which will bring you first to the majestic Gullfoss Falls (the "Golden Falls"). This is considered by many to be Iceland's most beautiful waterfall, and it's especially impressive during winter time as the water plunges through ice and snow!

Next, there is the geothermal field of Geysir with hundreds of hot springs of all types, most with boiling water. The geyser Strokkur erupts every 10-15 minutes.

Geysir, one of the most famous hot springs in the world, sometimes called the Great Geysir, was the first geyser described in a printed source and the first known to modern Europeans. The English word geyser (a spouting hot spring) therefore derives from the Icelandic word “geysir,” derived from the verb geysa, meaning "to gush."

You'll then head to Þingvellir. Þingvellir was declared a National Park in 1930 and was later designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is sometimes called "the heart of Iceland," because of its immense beauty and importance in Icelandic history. Wander here at your leisure.

Weather circumstances, snow and road conditions play a big role in this tour so the traveling time can vary greatly. Time of arrival in Reykjavik is estimated to be in the early evening at dinner time.


Day 7 - Snæfellsnes Peninsula




Today, you'll begin an exciting tour of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, an area with many of the terrain features which make Iceland a favorite with visitors to our shores: snowy lava fields, wind-swept cliffs, white-tipped waves crashing on the shores of black sand beaches, and icy blue pools.

Your first destination after being picked up at your accommodation is the beach at Ytri-Tunga, which is home to a large seal colony in the summer months. Though the seals may be absent, depending on the weather, the beach is a place of solitary contemplation, as many Vikings have done in the past, standing on the stones and gazing out at the cold sea.

The next stop is Rauðafellsgjá, a fissure on the eastern side of Mt. Botnsfjall. A nearby stream feeds the fissure, nourishing the plants there. As a result, the walls inside are covered with moss during the warmer months. For now, the imposing cliff walls are traced with ice and snow.

After passing two small fishing villages called Arnarstapi and Hellnar, you'll spend an hour wandering the cliffs at Hellnar, overlooking the sea. Spectacular rock formations decorate the shore, spreading across the sand and reaching out to the water.

Then, you'll go to Snæfellsjökull National Park where for a small additional fee you have the option of venturing into one of Iceland's most famous lava caves, Vatnshellir. This cave formed when the lava from an eruption began to run down the hillside. The lava on the outside of the flow cooled faster in the Icelandic winds, while inside, the lava continued to pour out, leaving behind the distinctive tube shape of Vatnshellir.

After this, you’ll go on to Djúpalónssandur and Dritvík, two beachfront areas. Finally, you'll hike to Lóndrangar, a black basalt formation in a u-shape, with two pinnacles, more than 70 m (230 ft) high.

At night, you’ll bed down in the seaside village of Ólafsvik.


Day 8 - Journey to Hraunfossar




You’ll spend one more day in Snæfellsnes to make sure you can take in all its beauty.

But first, see the peninsula the way the fish do by heading out to the open waves. Watch for birds in the sky and tail fins in the water as you breathe the salty ocean air and relax.

You’ll visit other fascinating formations, popular with photographers, such as the mountain Kirkjufell and the Gerðuberg basalt column.

At the Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum, you’ll experience the life of an Icelandic fisherman. A retired fisherman named Bjarni collected hundreds of artifacts in the museum over his lifetime and is happy to welcome guests to his gallery of items, including ship rigging, tools, and an actual boat.

If you’ve been wondering about traditional Icelandic food, you’ll have the chance to try hákarl here, or fermented shark, with a sip or two of locally made brennivín, a strong liquor that wards off the winter chill.

Next, you’re off to the Borgarfjörður area to see two waterfalls, Hraunfossar and Barnafoss.

The day will finish with a visit to Deildartunguhver, the highest-flow hot spring in Europe. If you are a gardening or botany enthusiast, you may want to look for the deer fern, which grows in only this one location in Iceland. Finally, you’ll drive through Borgarnes on your way back to Reykjavik for the night.

If you're not too tired, you may feel the urge to go hunting once more for the Northern Lights.


Day 9 - Relax in Reykjavík




You'll have a day of discovering Reykjavík's hidden gems within your itinerary. This day may fall in between your other planned tours.

As you will always be staying in the heart of Reykjavík, you should make the most of your proximity to the exciting city centre. There are plenty of museums, galleries, cafés, bars, theatres, designer shops and street art to admire and explore. And don't forget the restaurants! The seafood and lamb are local delicacies.

This day also offers great possibilities if you just can't get enough of adventure. If you feel like exploring you could join a tour to Lake Mývatn in the north and visit some of the most impressive lava fields and geothermal sites in Iceland! If you'd rather stay in the city you could go on a helicopter tour for a final view from sky high!

Horse riding and whale watching are also available, for those who like to keep their feet on the ground, and Reykjavík also has a number of public outdoor pools that are warm all year round, so you can relax in a sauna, soak in a hot tub and meet the locals. Treat yourself to an Icelandic hot dog afterwards. You can also choose to visit the Blue Lagoon today, instead of doing it on your arrival or departure day.


Day 10 - Reykjavík and Departure




If you are lucky enough to have even more time in Iceland, you may do your last-minute shopping and soaking in the clean Nordic air before going to the airport for your departure.

With a late departure, you may also have time to visit to the Blue Lagoon before your flight, if you haven't done so already. It may be just the thing before a stressful day of travel.

We hope you had a wonderful stay in Iceland and will see you again. Perhaps next time you will visit in the summer, and compare the beauty of the country in each season!

My trip to Iceland was literally one of the best experiences of my life. The accommodations are all very nice and comfortable. I traveled alone and had a great time meeting fellow travelers, and I met several other solo travelers so don't let going alone worry you, you will make friends. My trip started with going immediately to Blue Lagoon directly from the airport and I highly recommend that as a start to your trip. When I got there the sun was rising and it was epic! (Do make sure you carry on your jackets and warm clothing, my bags were delayed and I was very happy to have my important warm clothes.) The second day we headed to the West Coast with Nice Travel and the guide was great and very knowledgable. It was too windy for our whale tour so he took us to a great volcano museum, and he also made a special effort to help us see the Northern Lights for the first time even though that wasn't included in the tour. Also, the Greenland Shark museum and experience was definitely unique and I am glad I saw it even if the taste isn't something I will miss! I then had a break day and was able to go clubbing in Reykjavik where I saw GusGus, which was suggested by my previous guide and was awesome. The next part of the trip was to the Highlands in a super jeep vehicle. The trucks were all very warm and comfy. This was by far the highlight of the trip and we stayed in a lodge near a geothermal pool. I loved snowmobiling and the view of the Norther Lights from this area was incredible due to the remoteness. The guides from Extreme Iceland were excellent. Olly is the bomb and you can tell he loves his job and Iceland. Also, on a side note the guides brought soup made by one of their mothers on the first night and it was superb. The second night they made lamb on a grill which was the best thing I had on the trip even counting the city. These guys know how to cook! I would suggest buying wine, beer or spirits at the Airport duty free before your trip starts or you won't have it for this part of the trip and you may want that stuff. Also, bring earplugs and a pillow for the group sleeping area. The last part of the trip to the Glacier Lagoon & Hohn to see the lights was incredible. The night we saw the lights it was a 6 out of 9 level and they were extremely strong for us. I am a pro-photographer and I was able to get great photos of them. Bring a tripod and experiment with your camera at 800ISO-3200ISO, shutter speed of 15-30seconds and F1.4-2.8 and focus on infinity in manual and you should be able to shoot the lights. Our guid on this trip Christian was extremely knowledgeable and made extra stops the whole way to and from Hohn. He also played Icelandic music the whole way back and did a full rundown on the history of Bjork, the Sugar Cubes along with the political history of Iceland and how that intersects with music as many of the artists are now politicians. He was also the manager of one of the bands he spoke about and knew Bjork from working with her on a charity. Christian was also a photographer so he knew the best spots to shoot and made efforts to help everyone not just me get great photos. This dude is legit! The black beach was great too! I decided to rent a car after my tour was over and return there so I had more time. I would recommend to everyone if you want to do photos of special stuff stay an extra couple of days and rent a car to go back to any highlights or things you might think you missed once you get to know the country. Take this trip you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful experiences with 3 well-scheduled tours to a lot of amazing places in Iceland. Our guides were all terrific. This package is highly recommandable.

It is a really amazing trip in Iceland.The hotels are good and comfortable,the guide all are really awesome. Espacially the trip operated by the golden travel which make feel very happy. The guide Sveinbjorn Sigurdsson not only do the job well but also like a good friend to everyone. He took us to many different unbelievable beautiful place like the black beach in Vik and also a lot of other good-view place. He just like a good friend to me and really miss him. If i got another chance to iceland,the iceland golden travel and the guide Sveinbjorn Sigurdsson will always be my first choice. If there are other people is watching this rate,please trust me!!! THE OPERATOR:ICELAND GOLDEN TRAVEL AND THE GUIDE:Sveinbjorn Sigurdsson IT WILL BE THE BEST CHOICE YOU'VE EVER MADE! REALLY APPRECIATE FOR THIS AMAZING TRIP!

This is indeed a well package winter tour as we visited a lot of places in Iceland. We visited a number of awesome waterfalls for the 2 days South Coast tour. The tour guide, Ivar, was very helpful and looked after our safety especially when we walked on icy footpaths. We were also amazed by the Blue Ice Cave and marveled at how nature formation can take place in such a manner. Though the seals did not come on shore for the 2 days Snaefellsnes Peninsula tour, we still managed to catch a glimpse of their heads popping out of the sea from afar. We also visited the lava cave and experience what it is like to be in total darkness deep beneath the ground (about 6 storeys deep) in the lava cave. Due to bad weather condition, we did not manage to do the whale watching tour at Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The main highlight of this package is the 3 days Landmannalaugar tour. Not only we enjoyed the long road journey to Landmannalaugar in the very comfortable modified super jeep, we also admired the magnificent snow mountains with clear and beautiful reflection in the lake. The scenery was one of the breathtaking beauty. Just as the saying goes...there are no shortcuts to any place worth going. Though the snow fall was not thick enough for us to go for the snowmobile tour, we still managed to do some hiking in the surrounding area and enjoyed the beautiful winter wonderland. Hiking makes one appreciative of the natural rhythms and makes you feel closer to Nature. We also got to relax in the open air geothermal hot pool with falling snow. Time comes to a stand still as we immerse ourselves in the open air hot pool and we felt we "lost" ourselves in paradise (snow fall and winter wonderland scenery). We also enjoyed the delicious barbecue dinner. The lamb meat is very tender and tasty and the mushroom sauce is a perfect match for the lamb meat. We enjoyed the cosy stay at the mountain lodge. We truly embrace the solitude that the environment provides. It is indeed a good getaway temporarily from the usual city life. We also managed to catch the Northern Lights just outside the lodge in the night and viewed the stars shining so brightly in the sky. The tour guide, Atli, is very experienced and knowledgeable. He is also always so ready to answer all our questions and never get frustrated with our never ending queries. He makes very good judgement on the changes needed for the accommodation and travel itinerary arrangement. We braved through snow storm and hail falling during the journey. However, we felt no fear as we know we are in safe hands with Atli as the driver. We reached our destination safely. All in all, we highly recommend this tour as it covers the most beautiful attractions and very interesting activities in Iceland. Definitely worth the money!!!

This tour basically give you the chance to experience what Iceland has to offer in winter. The core of the trip show you the snaefellnes peninsula, landmannalagur, and jokulsarlon with a lot of waterfalls in between. The weather can be quite windy sometimes especially in the peninsula area. We were lucky enough to have a few days of clear sky for us to capture the northern light in the highland. Highly recommending the highland trip, the geothermal pool was perfect. We have picked the comfort level hotel, which is more comfortable than we have expected. The reception was extra helpful. In general, Icelandic people are quite friendly and willing to help. A great country to visit in both summer and winter season. P.s For the complimentary northern light tour, we have picked the boat tour, but it got cancelled twice due to bad weather. I supposed there is a better chance for bus tour as in winter Reykjavik can get strong gale and make boat trip dangerous.
