Beskrivelse

Explore Iceland's top destinations in your own time by driving along the gorgeous South Coast and the famous Golden Circle. This 3-day self-drive is the perfect stopover for those who want to steer clear of group tours and be in charge of their holiday while appreciating all the best that Iceland's nature has got to offer.

You can choose whether you start from Keflavik International Airport or the capital Reykjavik. You can make this a short stopover in its own right or a part of a longer holiday in Iceland.

The Golden Circle and the South Coast are jam-packed with beautiful attractions, both well-known ones as well as hidden secrets. How long you want to spend exploring each location is entirely up to you, and with the long summer days, you can keep going far into the evening.

Upon booking, you'll receive a personal itinerary with a suggested route made by a local travel planner, which includes both the famous sites and some lesser-known gems, tucked away from the more popular attractions. 

You also have multiple options on how to tailor-make this trip for you and your party. So besides admiring the stunning waterfalls Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss, and Skogafoss, the geothermal area of Geysir, and the breathtaking Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, you can choose to snorkel in crystal clear waters, jet across a glacier in a snowmobile, go glacier hiking, explore an ice cave or get acquainted with Iceland's famous horses.

Other attractions you can expect to see are the pitch-black sands of Reynisfjara beach, which contrasts with the sharp white ice of Iceland's glaciers, the gleaming icebergs of the Diamond Beach, and some of Iceland's adorable inhabitants, such as the puffins and seals.

Set your own pace and add on exciting activities of your own choice with this 3-day summer self-drive tour.  Check availability by choosing a date.

Daglig rejseplan

Dag 1
Det geotermiske område Geysir på den Gyldne Cirkel.

Dag 1 - The Golden Circle

On arrival at Keflavik International Airport, you will pick up your rental car or, if you are already staying in Reykjavik, you can choose to pick your car up there.

You will be driving Iceland's famous Golden Circle, where you will stop at Thingvellir National Park for a stroll, admire the spouting geyser Strokkur at Geysir geothermal area, and stand in awe in front of the plummeting Gullfoss waterfall. 

There are several other attractions in the area worth visiting before reaching your accommodation for the evening in Hvolsvollur. You can check out the small towns of Skalholt and Fludir. You also have several options for additional activities this day, including a snowmobile ride at Langjokull glacier, snorkeling at Silfra ravine at Thingvellir National Park, or going on a 2-hour horseback riding tour in the charming Icelandic countryside.

You're in charge, so it's your choice how to spend the day!

Dag 2
Der er isbjerge i Jökulsárlón gletcherlagune hele året.

Dag 2 - South Coast Attractions to Jokulsarlon

After a good night's sleep, you'll carry on exploring the wonders of what Iceland's South Coast has to offer. Numerous waterfalls, mountains, glaciers, volcanoes, and gorgeous views in all directions are what this day has in store for you, ending with the glittering and glistening icebergs floating on Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon and the nearby Diamond Beach.

Perhaps you want to explore Seljalandsfoss waterfall from behind or hike up to the top of Skogafoss waterfall. You could also take a dip in Seljavallalaug pool or admire the impressive but dangerous waves of the Atlantic crashing on the shore at Reynisfjara black sand beach. Or maybe you want to walk to the remains of an airplane that crashed in the desolate black sands on the south coast - you surely won't be lacking options today!

There are even some optional icy add-on tours for today, including glacier hiking at Solheimajokull glacier, snowmobiling across Myrdalsjokull glacier, or exploring the dark ice caves of Katla volcano.

You'll spend the night in the small town of Hofn, famous for its lobster restaurants.

Dag 3
Dyrhólaey er det perfekte sted for ornitologer, og søpapegøjen ankommer i april.

Dag 3 - Heading Back

It's come to the last day of your trip, and it's time to return to Reykjavik or Keflavik International Airport if you're flying back this evening.

Along the way, you can explore some of the same sights again, this time in a different light and probably in different weather conditions than the previous day. There are also a lot of attractions that you may have left out the previous day, such as the stunning Nature Reserve of Skaftafell.

If you so wish, you can choose to add on an exciting glacier hike on Iceland's largest glacier, Vatnajokull, that departs from this location. Alternatively, you can go on hikes in the lush area, for example, to the beautiful Svartifoss waterfall.

Other destinations you might want to make a stop at on the way back include Fjadrargljufur canyon and Dyrholaey promontory. Just make sure to give yourself plenty of time to drive back to Keflavik if you are catching an evening flight to return your car and check in. If you are staying in the city, you can return your vehicle at your hotel in Reykjavik or at the airport the following morning.
