From Reykjavik: South Coast and Katla Ice Cave Day Trip

1. From Reykjavik: South Coast and Katla Ice Cave Day Trip

Depart from Reykjavik in the morning and head to the Katla Ice Cave, also known as the Secret Ice Cave. See black, white, and blue ice that is over 800 years old. Marvel at the tall walls of ice that have been sculpted by glacial water throughout the centuries. Hear as the water drips and feel the cold and fresh air.  Visit the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall and then onward to the mighty Skógafoss waterfall. Afterward, walk and drive on black sand beaches pounded by the Atlantic surf and see the bird cliffs that surround the quaint coastal village of Vík. On the way back to Reykjavik, drive past the greenhouse town of Hveragerði, a place named after the abundant geothermal activity in the area which allows locals to grow all kinds of plants.

From Reykjavik: Golden Circle Private Full-Day Trip

2. From Reykjavik: Golden Circle Private Full-Day Trip

Travel the Golden Circle of Iceland by Jeep and see some of the nation’s most spectacular phenomenon. Depart from Reykjavik and drive to Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland’s ancient parliament was situated. Hike through the area to experience the dramatic mid-Atlantic ridge, before heading eastbound on the mountain road to Lyngdalsheiði. Your reward will be sublime views of the lava fields on the hills above Laugarvatn. As you drive to Haukadalur, look out for the famous Strokkur Geyser, which erupts every 5 to 7 minutes, spewing boiling water into the air to heights of 80 to 100 feet (25 to 30 meters). Explore the hot springs, before heading up to the magnificent cascades of Gullfoss Waterfall, plummeting into the white Hvita River along with glacial water. Drive to the start of the Kjölur mountain road. You will be approaching Iceland’s second largest glacier, Langjökull, where you can take optional activities, such as snowmobile rides, depending on weather conditions and the time of year. In the afternoon, make your way through the agricultural headland of southwest Iceland, through small settlements. Visit the hot springs town of Hveragerði if there’s time, before reaching Hellisheiði Plateau, one final wonder of Mother Nature on the way back to Reykjavik.

Golden Circle: Private Day Trip

3. Golden Circle: Private Day Trip

Our first stop is Hveragerði, a town surrounded by geothermal areas where people work in the energy industry with new technologies. Next stop is Kerið, one of several volcanic craters in the Western Zolcanic Zone. We will also visit Skálholt church, a historical site which offers a peaceful backdrop as our guide informs you about the history of the area. Next, you will visit the Geysir area in Haukadal where you can see the geysers, hot springs, steam vents, and creepy blue algae. Churn in particular is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every 5 minutes. Our last stop takes us to Thingvellir, where the Icelandic parliament was established - the first of its kind in the world in AD1000. At Thingvellir, you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulled apart by the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, and you will be able to stand where Viking settlers stood for centuries ruling the law of the land. Enjoy visiting all of these sights from the comfort of our vehicle, with a knowledgable guide and at your own pace with a private tour.
