Come join us on this private tour and experience the beauty of Snæfellsnes, often referred to as “Iceland in a nutshell.” Lava fields, mountain peaks, black and yellow beaches, lighthouses, picturesque little fishing villages, wooden churches, waterfalls, cliffs and wildlife - Snæfellsnes peninsula offers it all and much more. You will be picked up from your accommodations in Reykjavik and driven north to Gerðuberg, a monumental 15-meter-tall basalt wall, created by the ocean's cooling of flowing basaltic lava. The next highlight of the tour will be meeting seals at the Ytri-Tunga beach, which is one of the best seal-spotting locales in West Iceland. Snæfellsnes is also a perfect place for bird and whale-watching. After Ytri-Tunga, our next stop will be the church at Búðir. It is one of the few black wooden churches in Iceland, as well as one of the most popular photo locations among photographers and Instagrammers. Next, we will continue driving along the diverse coastline of the peninsula and discovering popular tourist attractions as well as the hidden gems. Before we reach the tip of the peninsula and Snaefellsjokull National Park, we will visit the charming fishing village of Arnarstapi where we will have a walk along the volcanic coast and observe waves crashing onto basalt rocks abundant in bird life.  We can also take some more time at this beautiful location and have a short walk on the path between mossy lava fields that connects Arnarstapi and Hellnar. From here we will be beginning to notice the majestic silhouette of the Snæfellsjökull glacier-volcano that gained worldwide fame when Jules Verne described it in his book 'Journey to the Center of the Earth.' Our next stops will be at the beautiful black beaches in Djúpalónssandur, situated at the foot of Snæfellsjökull, and the fabulous Lóndrangar sea cliffs, from where we will be able to take an even closer look at this magical volcano. Snæfellsnes is also abundant in volcanic craters. On this trip, we will visit Saxhóll, which is approximately 100 meters high, and a perfect spot for everybody who likes short hikes. From here you will also have a fantastic view of the ocean.  Next up is one of the top attractions of this tour and the most photographed mountain in Iceland: Kirkjufell. Though already renowned as a beautifully unique part of the Icelandic landscape, this mountain achieved even greater fame in 2017 after being featured in the last season of the Game of Thrones HBO TV Series.  Make sure you also walk to Kirkjufellsfoss to take the iconic photograph of the waterfall with the church mountain in the background. If we are lucky enough with the forecast, we will try to hunt for the northern lights on the way back to Reykjavík (September - April only). Don't delay—hop on this fantastic excursion and experience all that the mystical Snæfellsnes peninsula has to offer!

Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Luxury Private day Tour in a new luxury Mercedes Benz

Experience Iceland's most celebrated Golden Circle attractions on this private tour.  Travel in a brand new Mercedes Benz V-class luxury, with an added stop at the relaxing Secret Lagoon, Iceland's oldest swimming pool. This tour is perfect for those travellers looking for the VIP treatment, as well as those hoping to experience some added extras en route. You will begin your day by visiting Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site, Þingvellir National Park, an area of immense importance for several reasons. First, the parks sit atop the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, an area directly between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Second, in 930 AD, Icelanders formed what is arguably the first democratically elected parliament in the world, thus birthing a nation. 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. An extraordinary food experience. Come and enjoy it! After that, it's time to travel onwards to see the two remaining stops of the Golden Circle. First, Geysir geothermal area, where it is possible to see the mighty hot spring Strokkur blast jets of warm water over 25 meters in the air. Second, the mighty and magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, known to be one of the prettiest features in the whole country.  Then you will have the opportunity to relax in the Secret Lagoon, Iceland's oldest swimming pool. The Secret Lagoon is surrounded by steaming vents, creating a unique and rewarding bathing experience; in this respect, the Secret Lagoon makes for an excellent alternative to the more expensive Blue Lagoon Spa.  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 colourful 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. Experience more of Iceland on this fantastic, luxury guided tour, and you too can grab the VIP experience, sightseeing and bathing your holiday time away in total bliss. Join us for a fantastic private day tour on the Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Luxury Private day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Northern Lights Private Excursion | From Reykjavik

Make the most of one of Iceland's most ethereal phenomena, and book this Northern Lights private tour. This excursion will reveal to you Iceland's beautiful landscapes at night, as well as the unbelievable northern lights, without all the crowds. You and your group will be picked up in the evening, and immediately taken out of Reykjavík to escape the city lights of the capital. Where you go depends entirely on the forecast; your guide will need to find a place with little cloud cover, no light pollution, unblocked views of the sky and, for your personal enjoyment, somewhere that the clogged tour buses will not be going. This means that anywhere in west and south Iceland could be visited on this tour. You may, for example, head to the barren and haunting Reykjanes Peninsula, renowned for its many lava fields and its dramatic volcanoes, or perhaps the historic and beautiful Þingvellir National Park. As you will hunt for three hours, there are many great destinations you may see by night. Your guide is an expert on the surrounding landscapes, the science behind the auroras, where to find them, and how to best photograph them. This means that when they start to descend in the sky, your guide will be able to help you capture your memory forever. The majesty of the Northern Lights must be seen to be believed. Swirling beautifully over the landscapes, they are usually green but can often also be purple, red, pink, white and even blue.  Because the auroras are a natural phenomenon, they are not 100% guaranteed even on clear nights with a great forecast. If you do not see them—or if your tour is cancelled due to adverse conditions—you will have another opportunity to seek them out again for free. Do not miss your chance to tick 'seeing the aurora borealis' off of your bucket list. Check availability by choosing a date.

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!

Golden Circle Private Tour

On this Private Golden Circle Tour, you will experience all the best that Iceland has to offer. Everything between the mountains and the ocean: glacial rivers, beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, geothermal areas and wild Icelandic scenery. We set off on this tour by travelling through mountains that separate Reykjavik area from the south. The drive itself will be a feast for your eyes. Lava fields, distant summits, geothermal plant spitting out huge columns of steam. Simply stunning!

Kerið Now we will be travelling through fields, meadows and be crossing few glacial rivers until we stop at beautiful  Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. 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. Þingvellir is also a place where 2 continents meet. Imagine yourself strolling through a canyon which walls are made from 2 tectonic plates: European and American. A truly remarkable experience! After the last stop, we will drive to Reykjavik ( around 60 mins) and drop you off at your hotel (or the right bus stop) This is a private tour. It means there will be only you and your group on the bus with our driver/guide. We can customize this tour for you within the estimated time, free of charge.

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.

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 Icecap hides a summit crater at 4700ft high. 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.

Private Luxury Tour in a Mercedes Benz | Reykjanes Peninsula with Lava Tunnel & Blue Lagoon

Join this thrilling private tour exploring the natural attractions found within the Reykjanes Peninsula, including stops at Raufarhólshellir lava tunnel and the world famous Blue Lagoon Spa. This is a fantastic choice for those looking to discover Reykjanes, but who wish to do so with both privacy and solitude.  The tour begins in Reykjavík or at the Keflavík International Airport. You will first be picked up from your accommodation, before being driven to the first site of the day,  Raufarhólshellir lava tunnel. This is one of the longest and most famous cave systems in Iceland, providing a true insight into how lava solidifies after an explosive volcanic eruption.  During the winter, extraordinary ice sculptures form inside the entrance of the tunnel and, a little further inside, you will see firsthand the detail and dazzling colour of the various rock faces.  Your next stop will be Kleifarvatn, the largest lake on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Its southern section is warmed by hot springs that run into the lake but is otherwise very cold. Despite being no good for a swim, Kleifarvatn is the perfect place for taking photographs because of its stark volcanic surroundings and bright blue water. After that, you will make a stop at the geothermal springs of Krýsuvík, located within the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Dramatically coloured hills create a beautiful view over the volcanic vents and boiling springs, making this one of the most prized travel destinations in the area. The one and only Blue Lagoon will be your final destination on this private day tour. Thankfully, it is one of the most rewarding, allowing you to lay back, soak and relax your muscles after a hard day's adventuring.   At the Blue Lagoon, water is pumped from the depths of the earth by the adjacent geothermal power-plant and contains within it strains of healing algae and bacteria that can be found nowhere else. The water's opacity and vivid blue colour reveal these unusual properties, all the while complimenting the lagoon's luxurious aesthetic. Other than its pools, the Blue Lagoon boasts hot and cold tubs, saunas and steam rooms, as well as various skin and massage treatments that can be purchased at extra cost. All guests can use the silica masks provided, but those on the premium package can also expect algae masks, a free welcome drink and use of the facility's bathrobes and slippers. The admission to the Blue Lagoon and the Lava Tunnel is included in the tour price. The driver will wait for you, before returning your party to their accommodation. Book this fantastic private tour and experience all of the attractions that make the Reykjanes Peninsula so beloved.

You will be picked up from your accommodations in Reykjavik and driven north to Gerðuberg, a monumental 15-meter-tall basalt wall, created by the ocean's cooling of flowing basaltic lava. The next highlight of the tour will be meeting seals at the Ytri-Tunga beach, which is one of the best seal-spotting locales in West Iceland. Snæfellsnes is also a perfect place for bird and whale-watching. After Ytri-Tunga, our next stop will be the church at Búðir.

This tour is perfect for those travellers looking for the VIP treatment, as well as those hoping to experience some added extras en route. You will begin your day by visiting Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site, Þingvellir National Park, an area of immense importance for several reasons. First, the parks sit atop the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, an area directly between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Second, in 930 AD, Icelanders formed what is arguably the first democratically elected parliament in the world, thus birthing a nation. 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. An extraordinary food experience. Come and enjoy it! After that, it's time to travel onwards to see the two remaining stops of the Golden Circle. First, Geysir geothermal area, where it is possible to see the mighty hot spring Strokkur blast jets of warm water over 25 meters in the air. Second, the mighty and magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, known to be one of the prettiest features in the whole country.  Then you will have the opportunity to relax in the Secret Lagoon, Iceland's oldest swimming pool. The Secret Lagoon is surrounded by steaming vents, creating a unique and rewarding bathing experience; in this respect, the Secret Lagoon makes for an excellent alternative to the more expensive Blue Lagoon Spa.  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 colourful 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.

Where you go depends entirely on the forecast; your guide will need to find a place with little cloud cover, no light pollution, unblocked views of the sky and, for your personal enjoyment, somewhere that the clogged tour buses will not be going. This means that anywhere in west and south Iceland could be visited on this tour. You may, for example, head to the barren and haunting Reykjanes Peninsula, renowned for its many lava fields and its dramatic volcanoes, or perhaps the historic and beautiful Þingvellir National Park. As you will hunt for three hours, there are many great destinations you may see by night. Your guide is an expert on the surrounding landscapes, the science behind the auroras, where to find them, and how to best photograph them. This means that when they start to descend in the sky, your guide will be able to help you capture your memory forever. The majesty of the Northern Lights must be seen to be believed. Swirling beautifully over the landscapes, they are usually green but can often also be purple, red, pink, white and even blue.  Because the auroras are a natural phenomenon, they are not 100% guaranteed even on clear nights with a great forecast. If you do not see them—or if your tour is cancelled due to adverse conditions—you will have another opportunity to seek them out again for free. Do not miss your chance to tick 'seeing the aurora borealis' off of your bucket list. Check availability by choosing a date.

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!

Golden Circle Private Tour

On this Private Golden Circle Tour, you will experience all the best that Iceland has to offer. Everything between the mountains and the ocean: glacial rivers, beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, geothermal areas and wild Icelandic scenery. We set off on this tour by travelling through mountains that separate Reykjavik area from the south. The drive itself will be a feast for your eyes. Lava fields, distant summits, geothermal plant spitting out huge columns of steam. Simply stunning! Hveragerði Our first stop would be in Hveragerði when you can get some freshly brewed coffee and  Icelandic sweets at a local bakery. In the same building, you can visit the Earthquake Museum which simulates the earthquake that rolled over the south of Iceland in 2008. Kerið Now we will be travelling through fields, meadows and be crossing few glacial rivers until we stop at beautiful  Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. 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. Þingvellir is also a place where 2 continents meet. Imagine yourself strolling through a canyon which walls are made from 2 tectonic plates: European and American. A truly remarkable experience! After the last stop, we will drive to Reykjavik ( around 60 mins) and drop you off at your hotel (or the right bus stop) This is a private tour. It means there will be only you and your group on the bus with our driver/guide. We can customize this tour for you within the estimated time, free of charge.
