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. Your journey then continues towards Fludir, stopping at Faxi Waterfall first and then reaching the Secret Lagoon. This beautiful natural hot pool is one of the oldest in Iceland, and is definitely a gem you should not miss....
Great highlights in Iceland and an amazing tour guide! Dooley was one of a kind!
This scenic tour of Iceland’s southern coast takes you to some of Iceland’s most iconic natural sites. See the glacier-covered peaks of Eyjafjallajökull, the Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls and much more. Take in panoramic views of the most remote interior regions of the highlands. Marvel at the beauty of the Sólheimajökull glacier and the unearthly basalt columns in Reynisfjara. Walk along the spirited black sand beaches of Dyrhólaey. Experience one of the most geographically diverse routes in Iceland on this 10-hour tour. Return to Reykjavik in the evening with memories that are sure to last a lifetime.
This was a big bus instead of the small group minibus we booked. Apparently the company had a problem with the minibus. However, the guide was very accommodating and took care of us. She was very enthusiastic and obviously loved her country. We enjoyed the trip.
The tour starts when the comfortable jeep picks you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. Then head towards our first stop, Urridafoss, a hidden waterfall. From there continue to Seljalandsfoss, the famous waterfall with the path behind it that will give you the opportunity to take stunning photos. Just 5-minute walk from the Seljalandsfoss in the canyon hides another beautiful waterfall Gljúfrabúi, which you will have time to visit. Then continue to Skogafoss, a mighty waterfall visible from the road. A staircase winds up the grassy slope beside the waterfall, walk up there if you want to catch some spectacular views of the waterfall andIceland’s South Coast. On a sunny day, both waterfalls will be made even more beautiful by splendid rainbows. Your next stop is the Dakota Plane Wreck. Located on the stunning Solheimasandur black beach in South Iceland, the Dakota Plane Wreck has la...

Spent a lot of time trying to find the best tour for our budget. Weren’t fancying a large group and were looking for a personalised trip. And that is what we got! A small group, comfortable transport and an extremely friendly guide. We got to see the glacier, black sand beach and waterfalls! Asgier (guide) absolutely made our trip with all his funny stories and he absolutely went above and beyond to make our trip very special! The weather was incredibly snowy and wild. Asgier was not only a fantastic guide, but also a great driver! The journey looked treacherous at times! But he managed to get us everywhere safely and with good humour too. Absolutely suggest booking this trip.
The weather was planning on changing for the worst, so our guide made the decision to change the schedule up slightly, to ensure we saw the glacier and black sand beach before the high winds closed them for the day. The waterfalls were amazing
Thank you Emma (our tour guide)! Very knowledgeable, funny and interactive tour guide ever! Tour was amazing! This is must do tour 100%. The beauty you are about to witness is out of this world!!!
It was perfect, and great that it was a small number! The other travellers were lovely and the tour guide knew everything and anything we had to ask :)
Very nice tour, very dedicated and happy guide who was well informed and could tell very well.
