Golden Circle

On this classic tour we‘ll join a small group and guide to drive The Golden Circle and take in all its awe and beauty! We‘ll visit Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss the queen of all Icelandic waterfalls.We’ll walk the beautiful Þingvellir National Park and UNESCO Heritage site. The scenery is amazing no matter the weather! We’ll get a close look at how the tectonic plates drifted apart and where the first settlers of Iceland founded the world ́s oldest parliament Althingi (Alþingi) in the year 930. We then continue to the area with the famous Geysir which all other geysers are named after. Here we’ll see the lively Strokkur erupt roughly every 5-10 minutes and reach a height up to 25 meters along with observing the other geothermal features of the area. From there we’ll head up to Gullfoss waterfall, which Icelander ́s call the Queen of Waterfalls!

Free Day to Enjoy at Hotel Ranga

Enjoy a day to yourself.

Take a hike around the stunning landscape, soak in a hot tub, enjoy the awesome views and delicious local food, relax in the lounge and the games room or just do nothing and chill out in your gorgeous hotel.

South Coast and Glacier Hike

Your day starts at 8:00am, when your driver collects you from central Reykjavik.

Our first stop is the majestic Skógafoss waterfall, one of the most iconic ones in the country. You might remember it from the popular Game of Thrones show, where it played a significant role. We will continue our tour with some excitement, the glacier hike on the Sólheimajökull glacier, which is connected to Mýrdalsjökull, the fourth biggest glacier in Iceland.

Your guide with provide you with safety instructions and check your equipment before you step out onto the ice! This activity is approximately 2.5 hours longs with 1.5 hours spent on the glacier.

Afterwards you will visit the world-famous Reynisfjara black sand beach. Before heading back to Reykjavik, you will also stop by the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is located right under the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, famous for its eruptions in 2010 which halted many flights around Europe. If the weather is nice enough, you’ll be able to go behind the waterfall’s curtains and even see the somewhat hidden little cousin, Gljúfrabúi, which is a waterfall hiding in the mountainside.

Departure

Sadly, it’s time to say goodbye to Iceland, but you will be leaving with fantastic memories and, we are sure, with a yearning to return to this beautiful country. Your driver will pick you up for your private transfer from Hotel Ranga to Keflavik airport for your flight home.

Our culture, the Northern Lights, erupting volcanoes and incredible nature provide some of the best holiday experiences you can get. I have spent the last 15 years truly exploring my own country and it continues to amaze me every single day. The weather may be a challenge - we never know what what conditions will be thrown our way - but you can rest assured that every minute is an adventure! Respect for nature is important to all Icelanders and all the partners we work with care for people and for the environment. We are a family business committed to offering our customers the best, true, authentic experiences and nowhere else will you get a more personal service than with us.
