Description

Join this 3 day group tour to the Golden Circle and along Iceland's south coast to discover the stunning unique natural Blue Ice cave, glaciers, lava fields, hot springs, volcanoes, strong rivers and magic waterfalls. After being picked up in Reykjavik in the morning in a Wi-Fi-enabled minibus, your next three days will be spent exploring the many natural wonders of the South Coast of Iceland with your English-speaking guide. Breakfast will be included in the cost on this trip.

Day 1 The Golden Circle & Kerið Volcanic Crater
Setting out from Reykjavík on the Golden circle route, first you’ll delve into the mysteries of Þingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
This is the meeting point of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates, which have spread so far apart that it is possible to stroll directly between them. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America!

The next stop features the biggest geysers found in the Haukadalur valley; Strokkur and Geysir. 

Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall, is next. This is one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. 

Finally, to add something unique to your experience, you will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerið. 
At the end of the day, your accommodation awaits in Seljaland, a lovely country guesthouse located in a beautiful spot close to Seljalandsfoss

Day 2 South coast, the five waterfalls and black beach Reynisfjara
After a good night’s rest, your first stop today will be at the famous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is located beneath the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Close by is the beautiful but less known waterfall Gljufrabui which you will also visit.

Next up is the stunning Skogafoss, a drop of 60 m (200ft) of natural raw power that must be seen to be believed. You will then have the additional pleasure of visiting the secret waterfalls of Kvernufoss and Írafoss.

Then it is on to Reynisfjara, a black sand beach nestling under Mt. Reynisfjall. Black basalt has been shaped into amazing different formations, most notably the famous Reynisdrangar. Beware the might of the Atlantic Ocean which looms with its powerful waves.

Day 3 Glacier lagoon and the incredible Blue Ice cave
Today, you set off in the morning for a totally unique experience. A visit to a natural stunning Blue Ice cave will be the highlight of the day. After a drive through the lovely village of Vik, you stop at the Skaftafell national park where the amazing views will take your breath away! 

You then continue to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This famous lagoon is filled with huge chunks of ice that have cracked off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Some icebergs wash on shore, lying on the vivid black sand like diamonds on satin and from there, your Ice cave adventure will begin. 

The ice caves only form in the winter when glacial water freezes to create this unique natural phenomenon. Each season, the local glacier experts find the best caves to visit in an enjoyable and safe way. From the glacier lagoon, they drive you through the best of Icelandic highlands in a special Super Jeep to the ice cave. There you will have about an hour to explore and enjoy the magical blue caves. Please do not forget to bring your camera!
