Combo South Coast and Golden Circle
Enjoy this exclusive itinerary where you can see geysers, waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers up close and personal, and the black-sand beach!
08:30 – 09:00
Our first stop is Thingvellir National Park, a location very dear to Icelanders due to the contribution it’s given to our history. It’s also a tremendously important place, geologically speaking, since here it’s possible to see the tectonic plates of two continents, splitting apart. Next will be the Geyser Strokkur, which erupts every 5-8 minutes than we take a look at Gullfoss Falls. Gullfoss is a must-visit part of the Golden Circle Tour Iceland. It is situated in South Iceland on the Hvítá (White) waterway.
We head off to the waterfall Seljalandsfoss where you can walk behind the 60 meter high fall. For our next activity we use the advantage of our sensational 4×4 super jeep and go offroading toward Thorsmork Valley. We’ll have to cross some 20 rivers and streams in order to reach our next stop, Glacier Gígjökull which is the largest outlet of the glacier and volcano Eyjafjallajökull, also known as E15. After the refreshing short walk around the glacier area we get back to the Ring Road and further enjoy the views by the coast. We take a lunch stop at one of the restaurants we recommend by the the South Coast, depending on your budget and food requirements. Next we go to enjoy the beauty of Skógafoss waterfall. We’ll visit the promontory of Dyrhólaey with stunning views and a lighthouse. Finally, we head off to enjoy the sea stacks of Reynisdrangar with the basalt rock formations at the black-sand beach, which are located near Vík í Mýrdal.
