Full description
See some of the most amazing sites in southern Iceland on this 3-day guided tour. On day one, you'll start your tour by visiting the highlights of the Golden Circle. You'll visit Thingvellir National Park where you can stand with one foot in Europe and one in America, and see Gullfoss, one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. Marvel at the Geysir Srokkur as it erupts every 5-10 minutes, and discover the Mars-like landscape of Kerið, a magical crater lake of brilliant blue-green water surrounded by bright red soil. You'll spend the night in Hveragerði Village. You'll start day two of your tour by visiting the two great waterfalls of the south coast, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, as well as the lesser-known waterfall of Glufrabui. Then drive under the great Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier cap where you'll enjoy a 1.5-hour glacier hike to get a closer look at the Solheimajokull glacier. End the day at the great Reynisfjara beach, where the sea crashes on the black sands, and you can see the hexagonal basalt columns and black rock sea stacks. Overnight stay in the remote Suðursveit County. On the last day of your tour, take a closer look at majestic glaciers and lagoons. Then, head to the amazing Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you will have a boat tour, sailing on the lagoon. The lagoon is full of huge chunks of ice which crack off Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and float slowly out to sea. Last stop is at Fjáðrárgæjúfur River Canyon. There is a good possibility of seeing seals swimming around the huge icebergs. At the end of your tour experience, head back to Reykjavik with an estimated arrival time of 9:15 PM.

Very well organized tour and our guides Mika (on Day1) and Christina (Days 2&3) were absolutely fabulous. They took great care of the group and made it super interesting for all of us, they made extra stops for us, they were warm, they were funny, they were the best. We thoroughly enjoyed their company. The hotel stays over the 2 days were very comfortable too. The tour covers the best part of Iceland and we really enjoyed the south coast the most, especially the glacier hike & the lagoon, it was gorgeous. This has been the best tour we've taken in a very long time, thank you to the wonderful guides @ Nice travel.

The first two days of our tour to the South Coast, Glacier and Lagoon were brilliant with our outstanding guide, David. He was so enthusiastic and informative and showed us many interesting places off the main tourist trail. The day around the Golden Ring was a little disappointing mainly due to being rushed around too quickly and not being so informative..

Superbly organised, this tour combines the Golden Circle first day with two days on the South Coast, with a night in Hveragerdi in between - a town with nearby hot springs in the hills, that makes for a nice afternoon. The minibus on the second day arrived on time and our guide Kristina was excellent. She brought a great positive energy to the tour and added some impressive unscheduled stops too. The second night's accommodation spot is next to a remote farm where you can really feel the vastness of Iceland. The tour was very well organised including at head office who responds almost immediately to any questions you may have along the way. Can't recommend this tour enough,
