Blue Lagoon Premium and Reykjanes Peninsula | Private day Tour in a new Mercedes Benz

Come along on a wonderful private day's journey, driving and exploring the Reykjanes peninsula and finishing off by bathing in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon. The sites we visit on Reykjanes are some of the most stunning natural phenomena in the whole of Iceland, most of them made from rather young lava. The tour begins in Reykjavík or at the Keflavík International Airport. After collecting you from your accommodations, our very first stop will be Kleifarvatn lake, the largest lake on the peninsula. Its southern part is warm from hot springs running into the lake but is otherwise very cold. It's a perfect place for photographing because of its volcanic surroundings and bright blue water. Our second stop is the geothermal springs of Krýsuvík, located on the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Dramatically coloured hills create a beautiful view over the volcanic vents and boiling hot springs. Grindavík is our next stop, a somewhat isolated fishing town in a small inlet on the very southwesternmost corner of the peninsula. Brimketill lava rock pool is next up. It's a little pool right at the edge of land, supposedly occupied by a giantess named Oddný by folklore tales. The viewing platform above offers the possibility of getting soaked from the waves splashing against the rocks. Next, we travel to Gunnuhver hot spring. Its boiling water and mud pools were said in earlier times to get their energy from a ghost trapped underground by a priest. Close by is the Reykjanes lighthouse, Iceland’s very first lighthouse, built in 1878 but destroyed by an earthquake eight years later and then rebuilt entirely in 1929. Right by the tower are Valahnúkar and Valahnúkamöl which are unique cliffs and rocks made from some of the oldest lava on the peninsula. Next up is a genuinely world-famous bridge—the bridge between Europe and America. The earth’s tectonic plates, namely the European and the North American plates, meet there and form the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Sandvík, a beautiful beach with almost entirely black sands, is our next stop. This beach was one of the main filming sites for Clint Eastwood’s Flags of our fathers. The one and only Blue Lagoon will be our final destination of the private day tour, where you will be able to bathe and relax to the fullest. The admission to the Blue Lagoon is included in the tour price. Your private driver will wait after you and return you to your accommodation place. Don't hesitate—join us for this fantastic Blue Lagoon and Reykjanes Peninsula private day tour! Check availability by choosing a date. If the available time for tours does not suit your schedule and needs, please contact us by clicking the “Ask about this tour” link on this page, and we will try and find a time that better suits you. https://guidetoiceland.is/tour-operator-tours-holidays/luxury-tours-iceland/5455

Private Jeep Tour | South Coast, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach

On this private tour, you are booking a whole car that accommodates 4 passengers.    Discover all the must-see sites of the Icelandic South Coast, from Skógafoss all the way to the spectacular Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Get ready to explore beautiful waterfalls, black sand beaches, glaciers, volcanoes, and more. In the morning, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík and head towards your first stop: the magnificent Skógafoss, one of Iceland's most visited waterfalls. You will have some time to get up close to the waterfall, and you will also be able to climb up the staircase on the side of the waterfall to get some stunning pictures from above. You will then continue your journey, driving along the Ring Road. You will be getting closer to one of Iceland's most active volcanoes, Hekla, known in the Middle Ages as the “gateway to hell.” We will visit the Dyrhólaey sea cliff, from which you will have a fantastic view of the black sand beaches, the rugged peaks and the roaring ocean. With some luck, in the summer months, you might catch a glimpse of some puffins dotting the cliffs. From the Ring Road, another Icelandic volcano is visible - the infamous Eyjafjallajökull, which erupted in 2010, grounding air traffic all over Europe. You will stop for lunch near Reynisfjara, the famous black sand beach featuring massive sea stacks and hexagonal basalt columns, after which you will be heading to the picturesque town of Vík í Myrdal, where you will get a chance to admire the Reynisdrangar sea rock formations. Your journey will then continue through the ever-changing landscape of the Icelandic South Coast. You will travel through green lava fields, admiring sea cliffs, barren black sand deserts and glacial rivers, and you will stop at the spectacular Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon. You will then continue to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, one of Iceland's most beautiful attractions. Here, icebergs of various colours, sizes and shapes float from the glacier to the Atlantic Ocean. Some are washed up on the shore, known as the Diamond Beach due to the way the ice here shines like diamonds. We will have time to explore the lagoon and to take an optional boat tour, when available (usually from May to October). Boat rides are optional and not included. After this, you will slowly begin heading back to Reykjavik. Along the way, you will stop at Seljalandsfoss, another famous Icelandic waterfall. A visit to this waterfall is not complete without a walk behind the curtain of water, so make sure you bring your rain jacket and get ready to get wet. Just a short walk from Seljalandsfoss hides another beautiful waterfall, Gljúfrabúi, usually omitted by big bus tours. You will visit this waterfall in the summer months only. There will be plenty of coffee and toilet breaks during this private tour so that you can enjoy Iceland in comfort. Book now and experience Iceland's most captivating attractions under the guidance of experts. Check availability by choosing a date.

Those wanting to add an exciting twist to their holiday should not let this fantastic opportunity pass them by.  Located on the beautiful South Coast, Sólheimajökull is a rugged and raw outlet glacier of the larger Mýrdalsjökull. You can meet your guides at the parking lot of the glacier or, if you prefer, request to be picked up from either Reykjavík or various towns on the South Coast.  Because this is a private tour, you get to decide when you depart for your excursion.

At the foot of the glacier, your certified glacier guide will give you all gear needed for your adventures, such as crampons, a helmet and an ice axe, as well as teach you how to use the equipment. They will also tell you a little bit about glaciers, from how they are formed to the dangers they face.  Then there is nothing left but to go on the crevasse riddled glacier, with your expert guide leading you past its unusual ice formations, jagged ridges, and sinkholes. As you trek across the ancient ice, you and your guide will be looking for a perfect location for the ice climbing. Once the right spot is found, you’ll get to scale a massive ice wall or descend into a crevasse with the help of your glacier equipment and your guide.  Combine incredible adventure with the beautiful Icelandic nature on this private ice climbing tour.

Private Golden Circle & Personalised Sightseeing day Tour in a luxury Mercedes Benz V-class

Take a private day tour that brings you close to some of Iceland's most beautiful natural sites. The Golden Circle is Iceland's prime tourist route, and there is no more personal way to see it than on a private tour. You'll begin with a visit to the National Park Þingvellir, where the Icelandic parliament, the Alþingi, was founded by Vikings in the year 930 AD. The park is very interesting with geographical and historical significance. Here you can see the effect of the shift of tectonic plates that run through Iceland, which have opened large holes and cracks in the crust. A FOOD EXPERIENCE The next stop is at Friðheimar eco-area, where you will learn about growing organic vegetables using geothermal heat and grab lunch. The theme of Friðheimar cuisine is tomatoes, in many different forms. And that’s not surprising, as four different varieties of tomato are cultivated in the greenhouses where lunch is served among the plants. A rare food experience. Come and enjoy it! After that, you will head to the geothermal area Geysir, where we will see eruptions every five to ten minutes from the geyser Strokkur, and many other bubbling springs. Strokkur erupts to heights of up to 25 meters every few minutes, but the area's namesake, the Great Geysir, has been largely dormant since 1916. After Geysir, you will continue to the colossal waterfall Gullfoss, which many consider the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Formed by the river Hvítá, the waterfall is 32 meters (105 feet) high across two cascading tiers. Finally, you will visit a volcanic crater lake called Kerið. The crater was formed about 6,500 years ago and lies at the northern end of a row of craters known as Tjarnarhólar. This colorful natural marvel is oval, about 270 m long, 170 m wide and 55 m deep: the depth of the water at the bottom varies between 7 and 14 m. Kerið lies in Iceland's Western Volcanic Zone, which runs through the Reykjanes peninsula and the glacier Langjökull. Enjoy a more personal experience and join us for a fantastic private day tour on the Golden Circle Luxury. Check availability by choosing a date. For those who buy our Golden Circle tour taking place in January and February, we offer a free airport transfer for your departure. You need to inform us when your departure from Iceland is and your flight number. If you also buy our Private South Iceland Tour you will get complimentary airport transfers both on your arrival and departure.

South Coast & Glacier Lagoon Private Tour

Private South Coast and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Tour takes you on an amazing adventure. If there would be 1 tour to show you the true beauty of Icelandic nature – it would be this one. We will make it a day to remember. Hellisheiði – Drive On Top Of An Active Volcano – Hengill After free pick up, we will drive on road no 1 toward the south of Iceland. Since the moment we leave Reykjavik behind, you will be greeted with wild lava landscapes. Literally, the city ends, wilderness begins. Your noses will be glued to the window looking at the amazing lunar scenes. We will be passing through an active volcano Hengill, where Hellisheiði Power Station is located. The whole area is spitting columns of steam into the air. You can definitely tell something is going on under this mountain and being an eyewitness to this untamed force of nature would be a great memory for you! Seljalandsfoss After leaving mountains we will be driving through Hveragerði, Selfoss, Hella and Hvolsvöllur to get to the famously spectacular Seljalandasfoss. This breathtaking waterfall will leave your jaw dropped. You have definitely seen pictures of Seljalandasfoss but nothing beats the experience of getting a little wet when walking behind the falling water! Skógafoss Shortly after visiting Seljalandasfoss we will make a stop near another Icelandic gem – The Skógafoss. This waterfall is a completely different beast! A huge amount of water is dropping down with tremendous force forming an everpresent water mist that creates beautiful rainbows. It feels like you can almost touch them. Vík We will make another stop in this charming little town. It has plenty to offer. First of all: FOOD! After all that excitement, you probably got hungry! We will stop at a restaurant here where you can buy food and gifts. We will also visit the famous black beach in Vík and if we are lucky, we can encounter some puffins on the cliffs. Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach Oh my, oh my… This is certainly one of the brightest highlights of this tour. Named one of the top 10 beaches in the whole world by National Geographic, this spectacular location will leave you speechless. Basalt stacks, roaring waves and stunning scenery! But be careful not to come to close to the waves as the can be extremely dangerous! Jökulsárlón – The Glacier Lagoon A glacier lagoon filled with floating icebergs! Condensed beauty in one spot. Every time we come here we are amazed by the changing grace of this place. Here you can go on a boat tour on the glacier lagoon which is an amazing experience! (extra cost is 5 700 kr.  per adult person and 2000 kr. for children) The Diamond Beach Located just next to Jökulsárlón, this amazing location is breathtaking! If Iceland were an artist (and a person of course) this would be her canvas. Be prepared to use “WOW” a lot. Ice chunks glistening in the sun like diamonds tossed around by Atlantic waves make a fabulous spectacle!

You can have a walk around the ridges or even go down and touch the gleaming surface of the water. Geysir At  Geysir, you will witness an eruption of hot water going almost 20 or so meters up into the air. The whole area is a geological wonder covered in steam coming from the geothermal activity – an experience you will never forget! Gullfoss When visiting the Gullfoss waterfall you will be stunned by the scale of this famous waterfall. Many cascades of fast pacing water dropping down to a canyon while producing amazing rainbows (with the right weather) is just a jaw-dropping experience! This is also a great place for lunch and for shopping. We can recommend the traditional Icelandic soup (there is always an option without meat): it will keep you full and warm for the rest of the day. Þingvellir Our last stop on Private Golden Circle Tour would be the famous Þingvellir. This is the oldest working parliament in the world. There you will walk on old battlegrounds where the Vikings fought among each other in countless battles.

Westman Islands Super Jeep Day Tour from Reykjavik

Book this tour and you can explore remote volcanic islands off the South Coast of Iceland. The Westman islands have a unique history and many traditions; you won’t want to miss them on your visit to Iceland. After being picked up in Reykjavík, your adventure will begin with a drive along the South Coast, with its spectacular and ever-changing landscape.  You will be headed for Landeyjahöfn, a small harbour close to Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you will hop on the ferry to Heimaey, the largest of the Westman Islands.   The ferry ride will only last 30 to 40 minutes, but the views from the ferry as you approach the islands are spectacular.  You will be able to spot a few different islands and will be amazed by the shapes and colours of their cliffs and rock formations. With a population of about 4.500 people, Heimaey is the largest and the only inhabited island of the archipelago. Here a huge volcano eruption occurred in 1973, which forced the Islanders to flee and some of them never returned to their homes. The eruption of Eldfell volcano destroyed many houses and changed the shape of the islands. Today, there exists a museum, which was built around the ruins of one of these houses that were covered by lava during the eruption. The Eldheimar museum tells the unique story of the 1973 eruption, a story of hope and determination, a story that everyone should learn when visiting these islands. Your day will continue with a hike to the top of Eldfell volcano, from where you will have a very beautiful view of the islands and the new lava fields that were created during the last eruption.  You will then drive to Stórhöfði, the windiest place in Europe, for more great views and to spot some puffins! You will then visit Herjólfsdalur valley, the Elephant Rock and the ruins of a typical farmhouse from the first settlers of the Westman Islands.  Last but not least, you will visit Sæheimar Museum and Aquarium, where you will learn about the islands' unique geology, about the different animals that populate them and, with some luck, you might have a close encounter with a puffin. At the end of the day, you will take the ferry back to Landeyjahöfn harbour and drive back to Reykjavik.  If there is enough time, you will pay a quick visit to Seljalandsfoss waterfall on the way. Explore the unique Westman islands on this amazing day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Private Snaefellsnes Peninsula Day Tour | Small Group Experience

Snæfellsnes Peninsula – Dramatic Landscape and Tranquil Nature.  Visiting Snæfellsnes is a shortcut to getting to know Icelandic Nature. With its stark contrast of green mossy grown lava fields, thundering waves of the North Atlantic Ocean and glacier covered Volcano Snæfellsjökull there is so much to see in one day and difficult to cover in one day, but we do our best.  The tour heads from Reykjavik through the town of Borgarnes. From there we head towards the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The peninsula is the home to 7 different municipalities with population of few dozen up to few hundred people. The tour includes stops at highlights like Djúpalónssandur beach where lava fields and the ocean have been clashing onto each other for thousands of years.  The Snæfellsnes Glacier is one of Iceland’s best-known glaciers and visited by many each year.

The last eruption took place about 1800 years ago, but the volcano has been dormant since and hopefully stays that way.  Arnarstapi village is a very pretty little town where we stop to soak in the beautiful harbour area and basalt cliffs with nesting birds in the summer.    On the northern side of the peninsula we stop at Kirkjufell Mountain and give everyone a chance to photograph the well-known mountain that served as a backdrop in the HBO series Game of Thrones   The driving distance of the day is around 400 kilometres and total driving time is around 4 hours 30 minutes, but this is divided into shorter journeys between the stops.  Lunch is not included but you will be able to buy something to eat at a cafe/restaurant during the day  The weather is always a major player when traveling in Iceland, so a good idea is to bring with you warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers and sturdy shoes. bring warm hat, scarf and gloves.

Blue Lagoon Premium and Reykjanes Peninsula | Private day Tour in a new Mercedes Benz

Come along on a wonderful private day's journey, driving and exploring the Reykjanes peninsula and finishing off by bathing in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon. The sites we visit on Reykjanes are some of the most stunning natural phenomena in the whole of Iceland, most of them made from rather young lava. The tour begins in Reykjavík or at the Keflavík International Airport. After collecting you from your accommodations, our very first stop will be Kleifarvatn lake, the largest lake on the peninsula. Its southern part is warm from hot springs running into the lake but is otherwise very cold. It's a perfect place for photographing because of its volcanic surroundings and bright blue water. Our second stop is the geothermal springs of Krýsuvík, located on the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Dramatically coloured hills create a beautiful view over the volcanic vents and boiling hot springs. Grindavík is our next stop, a somewhat isolated fishing town in a small inlet on the very southwesternmost corner of the peninsula. Brimketill lava rock pool is next up. It's a little pool right at the edge of land, supposedly occupied by a giantess named Oddný by folklore tales. The viewing platform above offers the possibility of getting soaked from the waves splashing against the rocks. Next, we travel to Gunnuhver hot spring. Its boiling water and mud pools were said in earlier times to get their energy from a ghost trapped underground by a priest. Close by is the Reykjanes lighthouse, Iceland’s very first lighthouse, built in 1878 but destroyed by an earthquake eight years later and then rebuilt entirely in 1929. Right by the tower are Valahnúkar and Valahnúkamöl which are unique cliffs and rocks made from some of the oldest lava on the peninsula. Next up is a genuinely world-famous bridge—the bridge between Europe and America. The earth’s tectonic plates, namely the European and the North American plates, meet there and form the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Sandvík, a beautiful beach with almost entirely black sands, is our next stop. This beach was one of the main filming sites for Clint Eastwood’s Flags of our fathers. The one and only Blue Lagoon will be our final destination of the private day tour, where you will be able to bathe and relax to the fullest. The admission to the Blue Lagoon is included in the tour price. Your private driver will wait after you and return you to your accommodation place. Don't hesitate—join us for this fantastic Blue Lagoon and Reykjanes Peninsula private day tour! Check availability by choosing a date. If the available time for tours does not suit your schedule and needs, please contact us by clicking the “Ask about this tour” link on this page, and we will try and find a time that better suits you. https://guidetoiceland.is/tour-operator-tours-holidays/luxury-tours-iceland/5455

Private Jeep Tour | South Coast, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach

On this private tour, you are booking a whole car that accommodates 4 passengers.    Discover all the must-see sites of the Icelandic South Coast, from Skógafoss all the way to the spectacular Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Get ready to explore beautiful waterfalls, black sand beaches, glaciers, volcanoes, and more. In the morning, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík and head towards your first stop: the magnificent Skógafoss, one of Iceland's most visited waterfalls. You will have some time to get up close to the waterfall, and you will also be able to climb up the staircase on the side of the waterfall to get some stunning pictures from above. You will then continue your journey, driving along the Ring Road. You will be getting closer to one of Iceland's most active volcanoes, Hekla, known in the Middle Ages as the “gateway to hell.” We will visit the Dyrhólaey sea cliff, from which you will have a fantastic view of the black sand beaches, the rugged peaks and the roaring ocean. With some luck, in the summer months, you might catch a glimpse of some puffins dotting the cliffs. From the Ring Road, another Icelandic volcano is visible - the infamous Eyjafjallajökull, which erupted in 2010, grounding air traffic all over Europe. You will stop for lunch near Reynisfjara, the famous black sand beach featuring massive sea stacks and hexagonal basalt columns, after which you will be heading to the picturesque town of Vík í Myrdal, where you will get a chance to admire the Reynisdrangar sea rock formations. Your journey will then continue through the ever-changing landscape of the Icelandic South Coast. You will travel through green lava fields, admiring sea cliffs, barren black sand deserts and glacial rivers, and you will stop at the spectacular Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon. You will then continue to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, one of Iceland's most beautiful attractions. Here, icebergs of various colours, sizes and shapes float from the glacier to the Atlantic Ocean. Some are washed up on the shore, known as the Diamond Beach due to the way the ice here shines like diamonds. We will have time to explore the lagoon and to take an optional boat tour, when available (usually from May to October). Boat rides are optional and not included. After this, you will slowly begin heading back to Reykjavik. Along the way, you will stop at Seljalandsfoss, another famous Icelandic waterfall. A visit to this waterfall is not complete without a walk behind the curtain of water, so make sure you bring your rain jacket and get ready to get wet. Just a short walk from Seljalandsfoss hides another beautiful waterfall, Gljúfrabúi, usually omitted by big bus tours. You will visit this waterfall in the summer months only. There will be plenty of coffee and toilet breaks during this private tour so that you can enjoy Iceland in comfort. Book now and experience Iceland's most captivating attractions under the guidance of experts. Check availability by choosing a date.

Private Golden Circle & Personalised Sightseeing day Tour in a luxury Mercedes Benz V-class

Take a private day tour that brings you close to some of Iceland's most beautiful natural sites. The Golden Circle is Iceland's prime tourist route, and there is no more personal way to see it than on a private tour. You'll begin with a visit to the National Park Þingvellir, where the Icelandic parliament, the Alþingi, was founded by Vikings in the year 930 AD. The park is very interesting with geographical and historical significance. Here you can see the effect of the shift of tectonic plates that run through Iceland, which have opened large holes and cracks in the crust. A FOOD EXPERIENCE The next stop is at Friðheimar eco-area, where you will learn about growing organic vegetables using geothermal heat and grab lunch. The theme of Friðheimar cuisine is tomatoes, in many different forms. And that’s not surprising, as four different varieties of tomato are cultivated in the greenhouses where lunch is served among the plants. A rare food experience. Come and enjoy it! After that, you will head to the geothermal area Geysir, where we will see eruptions every five to ten minutes from the geyser Strokkur, and many other bubbling springs. Strokkur erupts to heights of up to 25 meters every few minutes, but the area's namesake, the Great Geysir, has been largely dormant since 1916. After Geysir, you will continue to the colossal waterfall Gullfoss, which many consider the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Formed by the river Hvítá, the waterfall is 32 meters (105 feet) high across two cascading tiers. Finally, you will visit a volcanic crater lake called Kerið. The crater was formed about 6,500 years ago and lies at the northern end of a row of craters known as Tjarnarhólar. This colorful natural marvel is oval, about 270 m long, 170 m wide and 55 m deep: the depth of the water at the bottom varies between 7 and 14 m. Kerið lies in Iceland's Western Volcanic Zone, which runs through the Reykjanes peninsula and the glacier Langjökull. Enjoy a more personal experience and join us for a fantastic private day tour on the Golden Circle Luxury. Check availability by choosing a date. For those who buy our Golden Circle tour taking place in January and February, we offer a free airport transfer for your departure.
