Enjoy a whole day of exploring the Golden Circle with our Classic Golden Circle tour. It’s a classic for good reason. Combining history, culture and extraordinary nature, you will see Thingvellir National Park and walk among the geological wonders of the fissure zone and in the footsteps of the early Viking settlers where the Althingi parliament was founded. You will then be taken to Gullfoss and feel the mist of glacial water as it cascades down one of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls. Finally, you will witness the Geysir and hear the bubbling of the mud pots, smell the sulfur in the air and watch in awe as the geyser Strokkur blasts boiling water into the air.
Stay overnight at a Golden Circle hotel
On day three you will better explore Iceland’s incredible South Coast. This stretch of Iceland is renowned for its vast diversity of landmarks and landscapes, all visible from the Ring-Road you will be travelling on. You'll drive through verdant fields and across deserts of black sand, all in the shadows of massive volcanoes and glaciers. One of these volcanoes you may already know about; you will be able to see Eyjafjallajökull in decent weather, the volcano that seriously disrupted air travel in 2010.
The main highlight of the day, however, will come when you stop at the glacier Sólheimajökull. If you are willing, you will have the opportunity to spend an hour and a half hiking on the ice cap, something you can do in very few places across the world. The beauty from atop the glacier is unreal and will stay with you for life.
Stay overnight in a South East Iceland hotel
Your fourth day will start with a visit to the incredible mountain Vestrahorn, one of the country’s most popular spots for photography. Following this, you’ll have a real taste of culture with a visit to the settlement of Stokknes and the Viking Village.
After enjoying these sites, you will start to head up the East Fjords. This postcard-perfect stretch of coast will completely awe you, as you look down from huge mountains to narrow strips of glistening ocean, and picturesque villages nestled in remote corners.
Stay overnight in an East Iceland hotel.
On day five, you will leave East Iceland for the beautiful North, by crossing the magnificent Highlands. En route, you will stop at Europe’s most powerful waterfall, the awe-inspiring Dettifoss and feel its roaring powers beneath your feet.
The highlight of this day, however, is the Lake Mývatn area. This incredible place has more than just serene stretches of water; expect to see fascinating geothermal areas, impressive lava formations, and a huge wealth of unique birdlife.
Stay overnight in a North Iceland hotel.
On day six, you will better explore the incredible beauty of North Iceland. After a scenic drive along the coast, you will reach the beautiful fishing village Húsavík, where you will partake in a whale watching adventure.
After what is sure to be a delightful experience, you will continue on the road to Akureyri, the Capital of the North. En route, however, you will make a stop at one of the country’s most powerful, beautiful, and historical waterfalls, Goðafoss, which translates to ‘the Waterfall of the Gods’.
Stay overnight in North Iceland hotel
On your full final day, you will explore Snæfellsjökull National Park, often called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its incredible diversity of the country's most characteristic landscapes.
Watching over you this day is the crown jewel of the peninsula; Snæfellsjökull glacier. This amazing, cone-shaped mountain is jaw-droppingly beautiful, and you will be left in no wonder as to why it has inspired artists for centuries. It was, for example, where Jules Verne chose to set his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’. You will then head back to Reykjavík for one last sleep in Iceland.
