You could book the Into the Glacier tour an additional cost.  Starting from Iceland’s historic Þingvellir National Park, this tour transports you across the rugged highlands for an unforgettable glacial experience. You’ll traverse the frozen terrain of the Langjökull glacier in our specially modified glacier vehicle, and journey deep inside the pristine blue ice via a man-made tunnel into the heart of the glacier.

Drive back towards Reykjavik and stay overnight

Day 3: 

Drive towards the Golden Circle and explore the area. Combining history, culture and extraordinary nature, you can 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 can then see the Gullfoss and feel the mist of glacial water as it cascades down one of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls.  Finally, you can witness the Geysir and hear the bubbling of the mud pots, smell the sulphur in the air and watch in awe as the geyser Strokkur blasts boiling water into the air.

Day 6: 

Wake up early and drive to Dettifoss. Dettifoss is a waterfall found in North Iceland, said to be the most powerful in Europe. It is regularly visited on Diamond Circle tours and should not be missed by any visiting the region.

Then drive 40 minutes through Jökulsárgljúfur and visit Ásbyrgi canyon.  Asbyrgi (Shelter of the Gods) is the remarkable horseshoe-shaped canyon. Viking settlers believed to be a hoof-print formed by Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged flying horse from Norse mythology.
