Explore the natural wonders of Iceland on a full-day tour of the Golden Circle and the South Shore. A 4x4 Jeep picks you up at 8am from your hotel in Reykjavik.

Sit back and relax in the Jeep as you drive alongside the banks of Thingvallavatn, the second-largest lake in Iceland towards your first destination, Althingi, the place of the oldest parliament in the world, established in 930 AD.

Next on the agenda is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates and toss a coin in the crystal-clear water of Silfra for good luck.

Continue on to the geothermal baths of Laugarvatn and visit the Strokkur Geyser. Watch the water bubble and have your camera ready as the geyser erupts every 5-10 minutes

Your next stop is Gullfoss Waterfall, a double-tiered waterfall whose name translates to Golden Waterfall.

Drive through Icelandic landscape towards Eyjafjallajokull, the recently erupted volcano that caused the famous air traffic delays of 2010. Feel free to pick up some ash from the eruption to bring home.

From the volcano, head to the blue-colored Solheimajokull glacier, Iceland’s third largest glacier. Marvel at the Skogafoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls and take a walk behind the Seljaladsfoss waterfall.

Drive back along the coast of Myrdalssandur to the black-sand beaches at Reynisfjara. Marvel at the rock formations at Dyrholaey before hopping back in the Jeep for the drive back to your hotel in Reykjavik.
