Description

You will start your premium Golden Circle and south coast tour by driving along the beautiful Nesjavallaleid scenic route with your jeep. This road winds through mountains and volcano craters, offering great views of Thingavallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake. The first stop of the tour is the Thingvellir National Park, which is famous for being the site of the first parliament both in Iceland and the world. You will then continue to the famous Geysir hot spring area. Geysir erupts every 8-10 minutes, and you can walk around the area and take pictures of the hot springs before we head to Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, another unmissable place to see in Iceland. As you drive south, you will get closer to one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes, Hekla. In the middle ages, Hekla was known as the “gateway to hell”. You will have a beautiful view of the volcano as you drive towards the Lava Centre, your next stop, where we can observe the monitoring of active volcanic systems, earthquake activity, and surface movements in Iceland. You will then make a quick lunch stop at Katla Restaurant, which is in the Lava Centre. Following lunch, you will continue to Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. Get your cameras ready and make sure you wear a raincoat, as you will have time to walk behind Seljalandsfoss, becoming drenched in the pristine cascading water. Following the waterfall, you will drive past Iceland’s most infamous volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano that froze air traffic in 2010 and made Iceland famous all over the world. Your next stop is Solheimajokull, a beautiful glacier tongue which is easy to walk to. Here you have a chance to walk close to the glacier and admire its blue, white, and black ice. You will finally continue to the Dirholey Cliffs and Reynisfjara, where you can admire black sand beaches, sea stacks, and basalt columns.
