If you're coming to Iceland (or already arrived), chances are you've heard of the famous Golden Circle route. It's pretty much the perfect day tour, because you´ll see some of Iceland's most famous natural wonders in a 1 day trip: Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area. If you only plan on going on one tour in Iceland, this one should probably be on top of your list. The second tour you don't want to miss is the South Coast day tour. Now you can get on our Golden Circle and South Coast combo tour for 11-12 hours of historic sites, waterfalls and amazing wonders of nature.
Many Icelanders will tell you that their favorite part of driving around Iceland is the south coast. The beautiful waterfalls like Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the amazing black volcanic sand, Dyrhólaey Island and Reynisdrangar Rock Formations are some of the highlights. You´ll drive past glaciers and volcanoes, for example the infamous Eyjafjallajökull Glacier and the volcano sisters, Hekla and Katla. Many people tell us that they feel energized and invigorated after driving through the harsh but stunningly beautiful environment on the south coast.
The tour: After we pick you up in Reykjavík we´ll head straight to Þingvellir national park. Your guide will tell you all about the history of the area and show you all the important spots. You´ll have time to explore, take pictures and hike around a bit. After that we´ll take you to Gullfoss waterfall. There you´ll experience the power of the waterfall. Just close your eyes and listen to it roar. After you take a few waterfall selfies, walk around the area and perhaps stop at the Gullfoss café for lunch. Next is the Geysir geothermal area where you´ll see the geysir Strokkur. There you can walk around, take pictures, shop and either explore the area or relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Your guide will of course point you to everything of interest and help you out if you need anything. Remember, there's free wi-fi on board so you can post your pictures immediately and brag about being in Iceland. Next stop is Urriðafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is very special because you can walk behind it (rain coats recommended). After that we´ll go see another waterfall; Skógafoss. It's a magnificent waterfall and you can walk up a path to see it from above. We´ll drive along a beautiful route to the black sand beach, Reynisfjara where you can see the Reynisdrangar rock formations. On the way you´ll see the Sólheimasandur black sands and drive past the volcanoes Eyjafjallajökull and Katla. Of course, this is a guided tour so you´ll be informed of the history of each spot and your guide will tell you about anything else of interest along the way so you definitely won't be bored.
