7 Day Guided Ring Road Tour | Explore the Circle of Iceland

Jump aboard this seven-day guided tour all around the circle of Iceland. If you want to see and discover as much of this incredible country as possible, without worrying about organising or driving, then this is the perfect tour for you. Over a week, you will see a wide variety of sights, including the world-famous spots of the Golden Circle and Jökulsárlon glacier lagoon, as well as little-known national treasures: hidden waterfalls and the remote East Fjords.  This tour is designed to be relaxing, comfortable, and exciting. Furthermore, you will relax in a mini-bus throughout the journey. The bus hosts a maximum of nineteen passengers, ensuring a pleasant and personalised trip. The first day of this tour will centre around waterfalls, glaciers and volcanoes, as you observe the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls and Reynisfjara black sand beach. On this day, you will also have the option of glacier hiking (April-October). The second day starts with a visit to the world-famous Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon – a stunning glacial lake with floating icebergs. There is plenty of wildlife in this area, and seals have been known to sit on icebergs in the area. Nearby lies the Diamond Beach, where some of the ice that has broken from the glacier is washed ashore. This creates a dazzling effect, making the ice appear diamond-like against the black sand of the beach. In this area you will have the option to take part in some activities: an Amphibian Boat Tour (May-October) or an Ice Caving Expedition (November-March). Later in the day, the exploring continues with a visit to more sites. Explore Vestrahorn Mountain, Lagarfljot Lake (inhabited by Icelandic version of Loch Ness monster), and Studlagil Canyon (April-October). All these sites can be found along the Ring Road (Route 1). This road leads you through Iceland's coastline, by narrow fjords, endless green valleys and charming fishing villages. On the third and fourth days, you will discover the diversity of landscapes in North Iceland; witness the beauty of the Lake Mývatn area, visit some stunning waterfalls, geothermal areas and go whale watching from Dalvik. You will also spend the night in Akureyri – the capital of the North where you can enjoy the atmosphere of this charming, remote city. Over the next two days, you will explore the West of the island. This includes the Snæfellsnes peninsula, which is often called ‘Iceland in Miniature’, due to its diverse beauty. You will also visit the Borgarfjörður area, where you can explore the most significant known lava cave in Iceland. On the last day, you will visit the Golden Circle Route – the most visited set of attractions in Iceland. This includes the sites of Gullfoss waterfall, Thingvellir National Park, and Geysir geothermal area. This tour will appeal to people of all interests, be they photography, sightseeing, wildlife, adventure or culture. Check availability by selecting a date.

Golden Circle & Blue Lagoon or the Wonders of Reykjanes

Discover the incredible highlights of the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon on the same tour. No bus changes needed; just an 11-hour tour packed with amazing sights and a friendly atmosphere. This tour is always operated on a small bus, guaranteeing no more than 19 people on board. Also provided are Icelandic snacks and music, wifi and an expert, local guide ready to answer any questions. Your journey begins after a pickup where you are whisked away to Þingvellir National park. There, the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are pulling apart, and the history of the country is hewed into every stone. You will then drive up to the one and only Gullfoss, the king of all waterfalls before you go to the Geysir area to see the hot spring Strokkur shoot water up to 40-metres into the air. You will then have a lunch stop in the Geysir area. After lunch, your journey continues onwards to the Reykjanes Peninsula. Some people say that the landscape up there is similar to that of the moon, so much so that in the 1960s, American astronauts travelled to Reykjanes to practice for the moon landing. Later in the day, you will be taken to the Blue Lagoon, which National Geographic listed as one of the most impressive wonders in the world. It is worth noting; if you would like to go to the Blue Lagoon, you will need to purchase a ticket before the tour. You will need purchase admission for yourself and all members of your party in the 3 PM - 4 PM slot. The bus tour does not include the entry ticket to the blue lagoon. Sessions at the Blue Lagoon regularly sell out, so booking well in advance is highly recommended. The stop at the lagoon is about 2-3 hours. Those who do not wish to stay there will continue to see the sights of the Reykjanes area. The first stop of this is Brimketill, the lava rockpool that lies near the cliffs by the Atlantic Ocean. Then you will head to Gunnuhver, a mud pool named after a ghost from Icelandic folklore that is believed to have died there. Next, you will make a stop on the area around Reykjanesviti lighthouse, a spot full a lively birdlife and magnificent landscapes. Your last stop on this leg of the tour is the Bridge between continents, the same ridge you saw on your first stop in the national park in the morning. The bridge was built as a symbol for the connection between Europe and North America. After a short stop there you will head back to the Blue Lagoon to pick up those that have finished their soak, and you should return to Reykjavík in the evening. Book now! This is a great way to do both the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon in one day, or for those that love unique landscape the Golden Circle and the magnificent Reykjanes area.

8 Day Summer Tour Package | Best Attractions in Iceland

Join this summer holiday and enjoy eight days of adventure in Iceland! During a single trip, you can hike on the largest glacier in Europe, explore the insides of a volcano, sail amongst icebergs, walk behind a waterfall, and experience many more activities under the Arctic Circle. Over the span of eight days and seven nights, you will be taken along the picturesque South Coast to famous places of natural beauty, such as the Golden Circle sightseeing route, Reynisfjara black sand beach, and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This package also offers you the chance to fly to the north to visit Lake Mývatn or head west to the great Snæfellsnes peninsula. The tour offers more optional activities and destinations, so you can tailor it to your interests. If you love to swim, snorkelling in Silfra gorge on your day touring the Golden Circle will make it way cooler. For some fast fun, go snowmobiling on Langjökull or walk the ice tunnels under the glacier.  If you want to experience the firey side of Iceland and witness as many volcanos, craters, and geothermal fissures as possible, you should not miss out on the Þríhnjúkagígur volcano tour, which boasts the only place on earth that you can go inside of a volcano.  Another thrilling option is to take off to the north for Day 6. The moon-like landscape of Lake Myvatn and its surrounding areas will make you feel like an astronaut on an interstellar space mission. If you want something more romantic and picturesque, head off to Snaefellsnes peninsula in the west, often referred to as "Iceland in miniature." Walk around the cute fishing villages and visit Mount Kirkjufell, and you will end the day with a refreshed spirit and some beautiful photos! If you've tired yourself out with all this activity by Day 7, you can stay in the city and explore the cafés and souvenir shops of Reykjavik. Or, if you're determined to see it all, you can take a day trip to Snæfellsnes peninsula for more scenes bursting with nature's beauty. Due to limited availability and high demand for summer accommodation and these unique activities, it is recommended that you book as soon as possible, so this dream trip to Iceland becomes a reality this summer. So don't hesitate to book! Check availability by choosing a date.

Rauðasandur Beach | Walking Tour in the Westfjords

Discover one of Iceland’s most unique and beautiful beaches, Rauðasandur on this exciting and informative walking tour. This excursion is perfect for those who are visiting Iceland’s majestic Westfjords and want to explore one of its hidden gems. Most of Iceland’s beaches are black due to volcanic basalt rock, however, Rauðasandur is unique in that it is made up of vast golden sands set among black cliffs and blue ocean. The sandy beach takes its colours from pulverized scallop shells that have accumulated over the centuries. On sunny days the glittering sands seem to stretch for miles and it’s possible to make out Snæfellsnes peninsula across Breiðarfjörður bay. Seals are often seen on the beach, in late June, July and August, with their offspring providing the chance to get closer to Iceland’s wildlife. Your expert local guide will pick you up in the town of Patreksfjörður and drive you down the mountainous route to begin your tour of the beach. You will be guided across Rauðasandur’s breathtaking landscapes all the while being told local stories and legends that are said to have happened on the sands. One such tale is that of a forbidden romance between an adulterous couple at Sjöundaá farm which has been retold many times in literature and theatre. As well as personalised informed guidance, you can expect multiple stops for photo opportunities and plenty of time to enjoy the tranquil Rauðasandur. Your walking tour will end at the French Café where they offer soup or coffee, hot cocoa, waffles with cream and delicious homemade French chocolate cake. There you can sit on the patio and enjoy the beautiful view of Rauðasandur before being driven back to Patreksfjörður. Get to know one of Iceland’s most unique beaches and look forward to the unforgettable memory of this incredible landscape and unbeaten nature. Check availability by choosing a date.

South Coast & Eyjafjallajokull Private Tour

You will experience the magic of Iceland's South Coast on this private tour in a 4x4 SUV. This South Coast Tour is perfect for exploring natural attractions on Iceland's South Coast, including waterfalls, glaciers, and black sand beaches. You start the day by being picked up at your accommodation by your driver-guide and heading East. Your first stop will be at Urridafoss waterfall. This waterfall is the most voluminous in Iceland and originates from the longest and most powerful river, Þjorsa. Your next stop is the impressive Seljalandsfoss, the waterfall where you can walk behind the cascading water. Seljalandsfoss originates from the glacier Eyjafjallajokull, which is famous for its eruption in 2010 which managed to turn off European air traffic. Beside Seljalandsfoss is a secret waterfall, or in Icelandic 'Gljufrabui'. It is hidden in a small gorge that you can venture inside. Seljalandsfoss and Gljufrabui are beloved by photographers who jump at the chance to take shots of the beautiful waterfalls. From here, you will continue to the spectacular Dyrholaey, a 120-meter high Promontory Seacliff with extensive birdlife and extraordinary views in all directions. The name Dyrholaey means "the hill island with the door hole".  For those of you who are not afraid of heights, you can walk the arch or the bridge. Up there you can also find a spectacular and prominent "castle-shaped" lighthouse.  From Dyrholaey, you will be able to see Myrdalsjokull glacier in the North and the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano, the lava sea stacks Reynisdrangar in the East and the long black sand beach in the West (where you will visit next). Reynisfjara, a black sand beach, was voted among the top 10 most beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world by National Geographic in 1991, so be prepared to be amazed by its ancient and mystic surroundings. The distant mountainscapes, rock formations, and volcanic shorelines make it one of the most popular stop-off points along the South Coast. During summer, the birdlife in the cliffs makes it even more spectacular. Species like puffins can easily be seen, but be aware of the Arctic Tern who are known to be aggressive. Make a stop in Vik to enjoy a bite to eat before making the return trip back to the Capital. On your way back to Reykjavik, you will visit the majestic waterfall Skogafoss, with a 60-meter high drop and width of 15 meters it truly is breathtaking. Climb the staircase next to it to enjoy an incredible view from above, or cast your eyes upwards from the ground to take in this waterfall's astonishing power. Don't miss out on the chance to customise your trip to the South Coast of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Guided Tours in Iceland

Guided tours are hosted by experienced and qualified guides. By taking a guided tour, you will both free yourself from having to drive and you will have an expert on hand who can answer virtually any questions you have on the country's natural environment, its history, folklore and culture.

1. What is included on the guided tours?

Complimentary pick-up and drop off to all major guesthouses and hotels in Reykjavík, full transportation and professional and experienced tour guides. Larger tour operators also include free WiFi and digital entertainment on their coaches.

2. Is admission to the Blue Lagoon included in the price of the tour?

It depends on the tour you choose. Please note the terms and conditions outlined in the tour description to see whether the Blue Lagoon Spa admission is included or not.

3. Is lunch included on guided tours?

Generally, lunch is not included unless otherwise specified. It is recommended that you bring a packed lunch with you on the tour as not all tours will include stops at cafes or shops.

4. What do I need to pack for a guided tour? 

On day tours, only the bare necessities are needed. It is advised to bring a small backpack with you to carry water, spare clothing items and, of course, your camera.

If you are travelling on multi-day tours, you will be granted space on board for one large piece of luggage. Please bear this in mind when packing and try to store any excess luggage elsewhere if you possibly can.

5. What is the maximum capacity for guided tours?

Usually, there is no maximum capacity, though groups normally do not include more than 20 people. Luxury coaches can, however, accommodate over fifty passengers.

6. Does the bus stop at all of the listed attractions and how long do the stops last?

Unless otherwise stated, the bus will stop at each listed location, presenting the opportunity for sightseeing and photographs. Stops will usually last between 10 and 15 minutes. A lunch stop will last half an hour.

7. Is it better to book a guided tour on arrival to Iceland or beforehand?

To save yourself any disappointment, we recommend booking your tours and activities before arriving in Iceland. Space on many tours is very limited due to popularity, so make sure to secure your spot a few weeks beforehand.

8. Which language will my guide speak?

All tour guides in Iceland speak fluent English, and all tours are conducted in English unless otherwise stated. Please contact us via info@guidetoiceland.is if you are having trouble finding a guided tour in your native language and we will arrange a guide for you.

9. Will I be free to leave the tour group?

You will be given some room to explore the attractions, but will be informed of when and where to rejoin the group. Missing this will likely hold the tour up, making you quite unpopular with your travel companions.
