Itinerary

Day 1 - The South Coast

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Upon arrival you will enjoy the powerful theatrics of Seljalandsfoss. Bring a raincoat and you’ll be able to make the short hike behind the falls. The scene behind the fall and the trembling ground from the power of the falling water makes for an automatic photo blockbuster!

Skógafoss Waterfall

Further east along the coast is Skógafoss waterfall. Skógafoss is an incredibly picturesque sight: tucked in a little gorge, the river Skógá tumbles down a 60 meters cliff before continuing down the landscape towards the Atlantic Ocean. Alongside the gorge, a staircase can take you to the shelf above the waterfall for stunning views.

plane wreck「DC-3」

In 1973, the U.S. Navy plane was forced to make an emergency landing on the black sand beach of s ó lheimasandur on the southern coast of Iceland due to failure. Since then, it has been abandoned here. On a desolate and vast black sand beach, the broken and rough metal body is even more beautiful, mysterious and shocking against the background of dark sandstone. A doomsday landscape perfectly interprets Iceland’s sense of isolation, attracting many photographers from Iceland and around the world. Today, it has become one of the most exciting destinations to punch in and take photos in Iceland.

Reynisfjara, the Black Sand Beach

We visit the Black Sand Beach of Reynisfjara where the Atlantic coastline presents massive waves hitting the unique basalt pillars in the cliffs above the sand. The cliffs of Dýrhólaey are seen in the distance. This area of the south is also a paradise for bird lovers, as puffins, razorbills and dozens of other species nest on top of these cliffs in the summertime.

Day 2 - Jökulsárlón & Blue Ice Cave

Jökulsárlón, the Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón is a 200m deep glacier water lagoon fed by the melting of Breiðamerkurjökull, an outlet glacier of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull. Enormous icebergs also fall from Breiðamerkurjökull all year round so the lagoon is usually filled with ice blocks that floats South.

 

Blue Ice Cave

The journey continues with a Super Jeep ride to explore the ice cave. Your guide will share with you his expertise about the ice caves, allowing you to truly appreciate this amazing natural phenomenon – spoiler alert… it will be blue.

Diamond Beach

On the other side of the road, the icebergs from Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon float into the Atlantic Ocean where they are quickly thrown back to shore by the tide and winds. This black sand beach is full of smaller ice blocks in all shapes and sizes, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight. The ice itself comes in all shades of white and blue forming beautiful contrasts.

Day 3 - The Golden Circle

Geysir Geothermal Area

The Geysir geothermal area hosts many colorful hot springs. One called Strokkur is a geyser, which erupts every 5 minutes up to 35 meters. It was named after “Geysir” the original erupting hot spring, that gave all the geysers in the world their name, however extinct today.

Gullfoss Waterfall

The melting water from Iceland´s second biggest glacier, Langjökull, falls into a deep canyon forming the majestic “Golden Falls”. On a sunny day, you can see the glacier Langjökull in the distance and enjoy a rainbow in the mist of the waterfall, an photo blockbuster waiting to happen!

Photograph Icelandic Horses

You will have around 45 minutes to photograph these beautiful animals, so make sure you remember your camera, phone or selfie stick. The guide will find the perfect spot to create some memorable pictures of you and one of the horses, and there is even a private, black, sandy beach nearby which serves as an excellent photography location.

After the photography session, you and your guides will lead the horses back to the corral where you can reward these lovely models with a nice treat; your guide will give you a piece of bread (the horses’ favourite treat) which you can feed them.

Thingvellir National Park

We visit the place where the two tectonic plates, the North American and the Eurasian plate, are moving away from each other. Few places in the world offer a better and clearer view of this massive geographic activity. The biggest natural lake in Iceland is also located at Thingvellir National Park and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Thingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. as Icelanders founded here their parliament in 930 AD where the chieftains had their annual meeting every summer. The name “Thingvellir” translates to “Parliament Plains”.

If the forecast is favorable, chances are that you will be able to see the magical show of Aurora Borealis outside the hotel.

What should I wear for glacier tours?

Weather in Iceland is very unpredictable. For tours during winter: warm clothing as first layer, waterproof outdoor jacket and pants, hiking boots with high ankle protection, a hat and gloves are ideal. For tours during summer, bringing a light rain jacket and pants is in most cases enough protection. Icelanders often say, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes”. Jeans are not recommended for outdoor trips as they become very heavy and cold when they get wet.
