Shore Excursion for Cruise Ship Passengers | Golden Circle and the South Coast by luxury 4x4 SUV

See some of the most amazing sceneries of Iceland in one day on this specially designed Shore Excursion tour for Cruisers.   This is a 10hrs tour but can be cut shorter depending on departure of the ship. Our first stop on the Golden Circle is the National Park Thingvellir with its geological and historical wonders. Thingvellir is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List since 1986. This has always been very important place for the Icelanders. Here is where Viking settlers established the first parliament in the world, called Althing in the year 930 AD. This was a Viking-style parliament where chieftains from all corners of the island came together for the ruling of the country, to make decisions and settle arguments. Not only the chieftains came here for two weeks every summer, they had followers who would join them. The public came as well for trading goods and livestock, changing gossip, solving problems and disputes. People came to meet other people, learn what was going on in the country, making marriage arrangements, take part in sporting games such as horse-racing, wrestling, football and more. This was also a feast of eating and drinking, singing and dancing. A festival that no one wanted to miss out on.  Thingvellir National Park is a unique place between the North American and the Euro-Asian continental plates. It is a valley constantly being stretched and broken up as you will clearly see by the enormous cracks in the surface of the earth. Next stop is the Geysir Geothermal Park.  The hot spring Strokkur shoots boiling water high in the air every 5 minutes or so.  The breathtaking Golden Waterfall cascades 35m in 3 steps in to a great canyon. We stop where you can walk out to platforms, having a grand view over this glorious waterfall. Walking down the steps, you stand on the edge of the deep canyon with a spray of glacial water from the waterfall in your face. We now whisk comfortably towards the South Coast, with its beautiful white glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull, the steep cliffs of the South Coast mountain range with waterfalls cascading in a 60m drop down from the mountains. Seljalandsfoss is a tall waterfall you can walk behind. This is a very unique experience. Under the ice-cap of the Glaciers are dormant volcanos. When they erupt and melt its way through the glacier, we get this powdery ash in the air. We all remember 2010 when ash from Eyjafjallajökull grounded all airplanes in Europe for 3 weeks.  On this journey you will notice dramatic changes in the landscape as we travel through rough lava-fields and luscious farmlands in a smooth mini-bus. You will see cattle, sheep and the world-known Icelandic Viking-horse. You will see canyons, mountains, glaciers, huge cracks in the earth’s surface as we cross over between the tectonic plates, waterfalls, hills, lakes, black sandy beaches, volcanos and vast wilderness.  This is a Shore Excursion tour designed for you if you have only one day in Iceland.

Private Golden Circle Tour | Accommodation or Cruise Ship Pickup

Get to know Iceland with a private tour of the Golden Circle where you’ll see spectacular nature, erupting geyser and a magnificent waterfall. Those wanting to travel at their own pace, as well as tailor a tour to their own interest, need look no further than this tour.  You’ll be picked up at your Reykjavík accommodations in the morning by a luxurious vehicle that will whisk you out of the city to your first adventure. If you are arriving in the country via cruise ship, you can also be picked up at Reykjavík harbour’s cruise ship port.  Your first stop of the day is Þingvellir National Park, the birthplace of Iceland’s parliament. It is here where Viking settlers would gather to create the laws of the land and settle disputes. Þingvellir’s geology is also fascinating as the park is not located on the Eurasian nor the North American tectonic plate, but in a rift valley between. The shifting of the plates causes visible cracks and canyons in the region, some of which are filled with crystal clear meltwater from a nearby glacier. Next up is another historical location, Skálholt church. From 1056 until 1785, Skálholt was Iceland’s cultural and political centre. Today, the region is famed for a beautiful cathedral, the tomb of bishops, a museum, and a 13th Century tunnel which leads out to an excavation site. From there, you’ll visit the erupting geysers at Geysir geothermal area. There, you’ll see the mighty Strokkur erupt every 5-10 minutes, reaching heights of around 15-20 metres. So remember to bring your camera as a selfie with an erupting geyser is a must in Iceland! The area is also filled with bubbling mud pools and hot springs which you’ll be able to explore to your heart’s desire. Last, but certainly not least, is ‘the golden waterfall’ Gullfoss. It is here where beauty and power meet as freezing water from the glacier Langjökull rushes forth before plummeting into an ancient canyon, creating this two-tiered cascade in the process.  Experience the best of Iceland with this private tour of the Golden Circle.

Private South Coast Tour | Accommodation or Cruise Ship Pickup

Experience the South Coast in your own way with this private tour. See some of the most beautiful spots in Iceland such as the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the black sands of Reynisfjara beach and Sólheimasandur desert, mighty glaciers and picturesque villages. Those looking for flexibility and create their own adventure should book this tour now. The tour starts in the morning when you are picked up from your accommodations or, if you are a cruise ship passenger, from Reykjavík harbour’s cruise ship port. You will then be whisked away to the South’s countryside in a luxurious and comfortable vehicle. The first stop is the beautiful waterfall Seljalandsfoss. This unique cascade falls over a small cave, making it possible to encircle the torrent of water fully. However, you will get drenched if you do this, so make sure you bring waterproof clothing. Next up is another picturesque waterfall, Skógafoss. This one has a more classic shape as it falls 60 metres, creating a great mist as it hits the rocks below. Due to the amount of spray the cascade produces, a rainbow is continuously present on sunny days.  You will then travel through the black desert of Sólheimasandur on your way to the charming village of Vík. This little town is situated right on the edge of Iceland’s most famous beach, Reynisfjara. You’ll have a chance to visit the beach and view the strange, hexagonal cliffs that surround it as well as the giant Reynisdrangar sea stack that rise out of the ocean like terrifying trolls. On your way back, you will drive through the verdant farmlands so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for grazing Icelandic horses and sheep. Two majestic glaciers will look over you this entire journey; the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and the equally spectacular Mýrdalsjökull.  At the end of a great day, you will head back to Reykjavík, arriving early in the evening so you will have plenty of time to explore the downtown area, with its museums, cafés and shops, before dinner. Bring along your favourite people on this private tour and see the waterfalls, glaciers and black sands of the South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.

Cruise Excursion | Lake Myvatn Minibus Tour from Akureyri Port

Join a sightseeing tour of the beautiful natural attractions in Iceland's northern region. This is the perfect day trip of lava fields, waterfalls, astounding natural beauty and hot springs in the North of Iceland, not to be missed by any nature lover making a short stop during a cruise holiday. The tour starts shortly after your ship docks at Akureyri harbour. You'll board a minibus and head towards the magical Lake Mývatn area, first making a stop at the impressive and historical Goðafoss waterfall. This 12-metre high waterfall may not be tall, but it sure is beautiful and plays a big role in the conversion to Christianity in Iceland's history. You'll continue towards the gorgeous Lake Mývatn, known for its rich flora and fauna. First up, is a stop at the otherworldly Skútustaðagígar Pseudo Craters. Iceland is known for being a land of both ice and fire, and these craters were formed through volcanic activity, through explosions that occurred when flowing hot lava encountered the cold water in the lake. Nearby there are the hauntingly beautiful Dimmuborgir lava fields, sometimes called 'The Entryway to Hell'. This location is full of lava pillars and outlandish rock formations, rich with mythology, folklore, and ghoulish walking trails. You'll also explore the beautiful cave of Grjótagjá, where a crystal blue hot spring can be found on the rift of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Warning, the water is too hot to enter, although a few years ago the heat was stable enough for Jon Snow and Ygritte to warm their bodies in a fiery scene from Game of Thrones. Your final stop by Lake Mývatn is the geothermal area of Námaskarð or simply 'Hverir', meaning 'Hot Springs'. Here you'll find countless boiling mud pools, bubbling hot springs, steaming fumaroles and smelly sulfur pits. Along the way, a number of photographic stops will be made, according to weather and visibility. Finally, you'll be returned to the harbour in Akureyri, in time for the departure of your cruise ship.  Make the most of your cruise ship stop in Akureyri town and join this fun-filled tour now.

From Ísafjörður, you will travel into the heart of the wild and wonderful Westfjords, a region famous for its deep and dramatic fjords and astonishing landscapes. Watch from your comfortable tour bus as you pass through stunning scenery to reach the destination of this tour; Dynjandi waterfall, the largest of its kind in the Westfjords. Dynjandi falls from the great height of 100-metres in a trapezoidal fashion which has lead to people likening it to a bridal gown.

The Majestic Waterfall Dynjandi | Day Tour departing from Isafjordur

Discover hidden gems with the help of a local on this fantastic day tour to Dynjandi waterfall. Those travelling to the beautiful Westfjords should not pass on this opportunity to get a first-hand introduction to the stunning area.  The Westfjords are one of the most impressive but least-visited places in Iceland. This remote area is packed with incredible sights such as breathtaking mountain ranges, verdant valleys and spectacular waterfalls such as Dynjandi falls which you will visit on this tour. You will meet your guide in the town of Ísafjörður, and board a super jeep, a large, custom vehicle built to handle Iceland’s rough terrain. As the mountain roads of the Westfjords are often inaccessible for smaller cars during the wintertime, a super jeep is a must when traversing the area.  Departing from Ísafjörður, the journey will take you through an underground tunnel to Önundafjörður fjord and to the beautiful little village of Þingeyri, which stands under the mountain Sandafell. From there you’ll make your way up the steep and narrow Hrafnseyrarheiði heath road to the fjord Arnarfjörður where you’ll find the thunderous waterfall Dynjandi. This trapezoidal shaped cascade is 30 metres wide at the top, 60 metres wide at the bottom and falls from a height of 100 metres.  After taking in the glory of Dynjandi, you’ll get back to the super jeep where your local driver will take you on a long and winding road, where the stunning ocean view is on one side, and a majestic mountain range on the other.  If weather permits, you’ll travel along Kaldibakur mountain, the Westfjord’s highest peak, and go through the jagged Kvennaskarð mountain pass back to Ísafjörður town. If Kvennaskarð is blocked by snow, don’t worry, your local guide will know another way to get back to the town. Get to know the majestic Westfjords on this fun-filled day tour.

Svalvogar Circle | Westfjords Sightseeing Tour

Get to know the backcountry roads of the Icelandic Westfjords on this sightseeing circle route of Svalvogar. Anyone staying in the Westfjords looking to experience the desolate beauty of this rural region should not let this opportunity pass by. Your adventure begins in the town of Ísafjörður, where you will hit the road on a Super Jeep with your local guide and start your drive to the fjord of Dýrafjörður, surrounded by the majestic mountains Sandafell and Mýrafell on each side. Your journey then continues, as you brave a winding rocky mountain road, legendarily paved by a single man and his son with a 70 horsepower bulldozer in the 1960s. The sights on hand include a cluster of abandoned farms, but the Westfjords were amongst the very first areas settled by Viking Age explorers. You will also behold a spectacular mountain range often referred to by the locals as the Alps of the Westfjords. With a peak of 998 metres, Kaldbakur is the tallest mountain in the region. While most of the Westfjords mountains are characterised by flat tops, Kaldbakur’s is tall and pointed, hence the comparison to the most extensive mountain range in Europe. Your adventure continues to Arnarfjörður, the second biggest fjord of the Westfjords, dotted with waterfalls, dormant volcanoes and scenic bays. You will then drive along the steep and narrow road of Hrafnseyrarheiði, a stunning heathland boasting flat-topped mountains, so remember to pack your camera for all the amazing photo opportunities. Then, it is time to make your way back to Ísafjörður, crisscrossing along the rugged fjords that you have come to know and love throughout your journey. The Svalvogar circle route might be one of the most celebrated routes of the country regarding their natural sights and sceneries, but these roads cannot be ventured with a regular vehicle. Book your Westfjords adventure now for a chance to experience this incredibly scenic route onboard a Super Jeep with local guidance. Check availability by choosing a date.

Grand West | Latrabjarg, Raudasandur & More

Explore the wonders of the Westfjords in just a day, with this fantastic excursion. If you are passionate about wildlife, nature and history, then this is the tour for you. You will begin this tour when you meet your guides in the lovely town of Patreksfjörður; they will pick you up, and immediately begin to take you to your first destination. Your journey will take you by stunning seascapes and dramatic mountains, and you can ask your guides any questions you have about the region, its history and its folklore. The first place you are headed to is the Látrabjarg birdwatching cliffs. At fourteen kilometres long and 440 metres high, they are mightily impressive in their own right, without even speaking of the millions of creatures that live upon them. Over a dozen species nest here, but most impressive and sought out is no doubt the resident puffins. They can be found all over, and as they have not been hunted here for decades, they have very little fear of visitors.  You can get within arm’s reach, although you are asked not to, as the edge of the cliff is fragile, and puffins nest in burrows, so you may collapse one. Even so, you will have an incredible, intimate experience. Látrabjarg is also the westernmost point of Iceland and considered by some to be the westernmost point of Europe. Furthermore, it was the site of a dramatic shipwreck and awe-inspiring rescue, which you will learn more about later on this tour. Following your time here, you will head to a beautiful nearby beach called Rauðasandur. Unlike on the South Coast, where the shoreline is an ominous black, the sands here are golden and pink. A walk along here is a scenic, relaxing experience, that feels like it belongs in another country. Finally, you will head to the Hnjótur Heritage Museum, which this tour includes admission to. Here, you will learn all about the past millennium of history in the Westfjords, including the shipwreck at Látrabjarg, and how Icelanders managed to rescue sailors trapped at the bottom of the cliff. Don’t miss this wildlife, nature and cultural tour of the Westfjords. Check availability by choosing a date.

We all remember 2010 when ash from Eyjafjallajökull grounded all airplanes in Europe for 3 weeks.  On this journey you will notice dramatic changes in the landscape as we travel through rough lava-fields and luscious farmlands in a smooth mini-bus. You will see cattle, sheep and the world-known Icelandic Viking-horse. You will see canyons, mountains, glaciers, huge cracks in the earth’s surface as we cross over between the tectonic plates, waterfalls, hills, lakes, black sandy beaches, volcanos and vast wilderness.  This is a Shore Excursion tour designed for you if you have only one day in Iceland.

Private Golden Circle Tour | Accommodation or Cruise Ship Pickup

Get to know Iceland with a private tour of the Golden Circle where you’ll see spectacular nature, erupting geyser and a magnificent waterfall. Those wanting to travel at their own pace, as well as tailor a tour to their own interest, need look no further than this tour.  You’ll be picked up at your Reykjavík accommodations in the morning by a luxurious vehicle that will whisk you out of the city to your first adventure. If you are arriving in the country via cruise ship, you can also be picked up at Reykjavík harbour’s cruise ship port.  Your first stop of the day is Þingvellir National Park, the birthplace of Iceland’s parliament. It is here where Viking settlers would gather to create the laws of the land and settle disputes. Þingvellir’s geology is also fascinating as the park is not located on the Eurasian nor the North American tectonic plate, but in a rift valley between. The shifting of the plates causes visible cracks and canyons in the region, some of which are filled with crystal clear meltwater from a nearby glacier. Next up is another historical location, Skálholt church. From 1056 until 1785, Skálholt was Iceland’s cultural and political centre. Today, the region is famed for a beautiful cathedral, the tomb of bishops, a museum, and a 13th Century tunnel which leads out to an excavation site. From there, you’ll visit the erupting geysers at Geysir geothermal area. There, you’ll see the mighty Strokkur erupt every 5-10 minutes, reaching heights of around 15-20 metres. So remember to bring your camera as a selfie with an erupting geyser is a must in Iceland! The area is also filled with bubbling mud pools and hot springs which you’ll be able to explore to your heart’s desire. Last, but certainly not least, is ‘the golden waterfall’ Gullfoss. It is here where beauty and power meet as freezing water from the glacier Langjökull rushes forth before plummeting into an ancient canyon, creating this two-tiered cascade in the process.  Experience the best of Iceland with this private tour of the Golden Circle.

Private South Coast Tour | Accommodation or Cruise Ship Pickup

Experience the South Coast in your own way with this private tour. See some of the most beautiful spots in Iceland such as the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the black sands of Reynisfjara beach and Sólheimasandur desert, mighty glaciers and picturesque villages. Those looking for flexibility and create their own adventure should book this tour now. The tour starts in the morning when you are picked up from your accommodations or, if you are a cruise ship passenger, from Reykjavík harbour’s cruise ship port. You will then be whisked away to the South’s countryside in a luxurious and comfortable vehicle. The first stop is the beautiful waterfall Seljalandsfoss. This unique cascade falls over a small cave, making it possible to encircle the torrent of water fully. However, you will get drenched if you do this, so make sure you bring waterproof clothing. Next up is another picturesque waterfall, Skógafoss. This one has a more classic shape as it falls 60 metres, creating a great mist as it hits the rocks below. Due to the amount of spray the cascade produces, a rainbow is continuously present on sunny days.  You will then travel through the black desert of Sólheimasandur on your way to the charming village of Vík. This little town is situated right on the edge of Iceland’s most famous beach, Reynisfjara. You’ll have a chance to visit the beach and view the strange, hexagonal cliffs that surround it as well as the giant Reynisdrangar sea stack that rise out of the ocean like terrifying trolls. On your way back, you will drive through the verdant farmlands so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for grazing Icelandic horses and sheep. Two majestic glaciers will look over you this entire journey; the infamous Eyjafjallajökull and the equally spectacular Mýrdalsjökull.  At the end of a great day, you will head back to Reykjavík, arriving early in the evening so you will have plenty of time to explore the downtown area, with its museums, cafés and shops, before dinner. Bring along your favourite people on this private tour and see the waterfalls, glaciers and black sands of the South Coast. Check availability by choosing a date.

Cruise Excursion | Lake Myvatn Minibus Tour from Akureyri Port

Join a sightseeing tour of the beautiful natural attractions in Iceland's northern region. This is the perfect day trip of lava fields, waterfalls, astounding natural beauty and hot springs in the North of Iceland, not to be missed by any nature lover making a short stop during a cruise holiday. The tour starts shortly after your ship docks at Akureyri harbour. You'll board a minibus and head towards the magical Lake Mývatn area, first making a stop at the impressive and historical Goðafoss waterfall. This 12-metre high waterfall may not be tall, but it sure is beautiful and plays a big role in the conversion to Christianity in Iceland's history. You'll continue towards the gorgeous Lake Mývatn, known for its rich flora and fauna. First up, is a stop at the otherworldly Skútustaðagígar Pseudo Craters. Iceland is known for being a land of both ice and fire, and these craters were formed through volcanic activity, through explosions that occurred when flowing hot lava encountered the cold water in the lake. Nearby there are the hauntingly beautiful Dimmuborgir lava fields, sometimes called 'The Entryway to Hell'. This location is full of lava pillars and outlandish rock formations, rich with mythology, folklore, and ghoulish walking trails. You'll also explore the beautiful cave of Grjótagjá, where a crystal blue hot spring can be found on the rift of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Warning, the water is too hot to enter, although a few years ago the heat was stable enough for Jon Snow and Ygritte to warm their bodies in a fiery scene from Game of Thrones. Your final stop by Lake Mývatn is the geothermal area of Námaskarð or simply 'Hverir', meaning 'Hot Springs'. Here you'll find countless boiling mud pools, bubbling hot springs, steaming fumaroles and smelly sulfur pits. Along the way, a number of photographic stops will be made, according to weather and visibility. Finally, you'll be returned to the harbour in Akureyri, in time for the departure of your cruise ship.  Make the most of your cruise ship stop in Akureyri town and join this fun-filled tour now.

Discover hidden gems with the help of a local on this fantastic day tour to Dynjandi waterfall. Those travelling to the beautiful Westfjords should not pass on this opportunity to get a first-hand introduction to the stunning area.  The Westfjords are one of the most impressive but least-visited places in Iceland. This remote area is packed with incredible sights such as breathtaking mountain ranges, verdant valleys and spectacular waterfalls such as Dynjandi falls which you will visit on this tour. You will meet your guide in the town of Ísafjörður, and board a super jeep, a large, custom vehicle built to handle Iceland’s rough terrain.

If Kvennaskarð is blocked by snow, don’t worry, your local guide will know another way to get back to the town. Get to know the majestic Westfjords on this fun-filled day tour.

Svalvogar Circle | Westfjords Sightseeing Tour

Get to know the backcountry roads of the Icelandic Westfjords on this sightseeing circle route of Svalvogar. Anyone staying in the Westfjords looking to experience the desolate beauty of this rural region should not let this opportunity pass by. Your adventure begins in the town of Ísafjörður, where you will hit the road on a Super Jeep with your local guide and start your drive to the fjord of Dýrafjörður, surrounded by the majestic mountains Sandafell and Mýrafell on each side. Your journey then continues, as you brave a winding rocky mountain road, legendarily paved by a single man and his son with a 70 horsepower bulldozer in the 1960s. The sights on hand include a cluster of abandoned farms, but the Westfjords were amongst the very first areas settled by Viking Age explorers. You will also behold a spectacular mountain range often referred to by the locals as the Alps of the Westfjords. With a peak of 998 metres, Kaldbakur is the tallest mountain in the region. While most of the Westfjords mountains are characterised by flat tops, Kaldbakur’s is tall and pointed, hence the comparison to the most extensive mountain range in Europe. Your adventure continues to Arnarfjörður, the second biggest fjord of the Westfjords, dotted with waterfalls, dormant volcanoes and scenic bays. You will then drive along the steep and narrow road of Hrafnseyrarheiði, a stunning heathland boasting flat-topped mountains, so remember to pack your camera for all the amazing photo opportunities. Then, it is time to make your way back to Ísafjörður, crisscrossing along the rugged fjords that you have come to know and love throughout your journey. The Svalvogar circle route might be one of the most celebrated routes of the country regarding their natural sights and sceneries, but these roads cannot be ventured with a regular vehicle. Book your Westfjords adventure now for a chance to experience this incredibly scenic route onboard a Super Jeep with local guidance. Check availability by choosing a date.

Grand West | Latrabjarg, Raudasandur & More

Explore the wonders of the Westfjords in just a day, with this fantastic excursion. If you are passionate about wildlife, nature and history, then this is the tour for you. You will begin this tour when you meet your guides in the lovely town of Patreksfjörður; they will pick you up, and immediately begin to take you to your first destination. Your journey will take you by stunning seascapes and dramatic mountains, and you can ask your guides any questions you have about the region, its history and its folklore. The first place you are headed to is the Látrabjarg birdwatching cliffs. At fourteen kilometres long and 440 metres high, they are mightily impressive in their own right, without even speaking of the millions of creatures that live upon them. Over a dozen species nest here, but most impressive and sought out is no doubt the resident puffins. They can be found all over, and as they have not been hunted here for decades, they have very little fear of visitors.  You can get within arm’s reach, although you are asked not to, as the edge of the cliff is fragile, and puffins nest in burrows, so you may collapse one. Even so, you will have an incredible, intimate experience. Látrabjarg is also the westernmost point of Iceland and considered by some to be the westernmost point of Europe. Furthermore, it was the site of a dramatic shipwreck and awe-inspiring rescue, which you will learn more about later on this tour. Following your time here, you will head to a beautiful nearby beach called Rauðasandur. Unlike on the South Coast, where the shoreline is an ominous black, the sands here are golden and pink. A walk along here is a scenic, relaxing experience, that feels like it belongs in another country. Finally, you will head to the Hnjótur Heritage Museum, which this tour includes admission to. Here, you will learn all about the past millennium of history in the Westfjords, including the shipwreck at Látrabjarg, and how Icelanders managed to rescue sailors trapped at the bottom of the cliff. Don’t miss this wildlife, nature and cultural tour of the Westfjords. Check availability by choosing a date.

Walk between continents and take in the marvellous views and culture of the region. You will then move onto the mesmerising Geysir geothermal area where you will encounter steaming water spill over the surface of the earth creating many vivid colours thanks to the minerals in the water.
