Overview
Experience Iceland’s Golden Circle on this 3-day excursion from Reykjavik. This guided minibus tour visits many of the country’s most famous scenic destinations, including Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Fjadrargljufur Canyon, and Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. Your guide knows the best ways to get around the South Coast while keeping you free to focus on scenery and spot the northern lights, if conditions are right. Accommodations for two nights and breakfast are included.
Highlights
  • Hassle-free transportation between tons of attractions around the South Coast
  • Don’t worry about breakfast or accommodation—the tour includes both
  • Take three full days to explore one of Iceland’s most popular regions
  • See waterfalls, Fjadrargljufur Canyon, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, and more
What to Expect
Your tour begins with hotel pickup in Reykjavik. Board your minibus and set off toward Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, head to the Geysir geothermal area to explore it on your own. Next is Gullfoss waterfall, one of the most-visited in Iceland. After also stopping at Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, spend the night in Vik, where you hunt for the northern lights—as you will each night of the tour—if conditions permit. On the second day, visit black-sand beaches and glaciers. Start with a stop at Reynisfjara, with its impressive basalt pillars, and continue toward Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Afterward, spend the night in the Skaftafell area. The final day of the tour is spent on an ice cave and glacier hiking adventure. Hike to a glacier with your guide and explore a magical ice cave. Then, start the journey back to Reykjavik. Stop at Fjadrargljufur Canyon along the way and conclude the tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible

  • The order of the itinerary might change due to weather conditions. Your guide will have full power to make amendments to the itinerary when necessary.
  • Minimum age is 8 years old
  • This tour has the flexibility to make the most of the seasonal changes such as changes in weather and conditions. During the summer Iceland is characterized by energizing bright nights and midnight sun. Between August and May, if the forecast is suitable, you might even be able to spot the magical show put on by the Northern Lights. It is important to note that a guided Northern Lights hunt is however not included in the tour. Other wonderful and interesting possibilities can also come up during your south coast tour with us as Iceland is full of surprises.
  • We use a couple of different ice caves for our 3 Day Golden Circle & South Coast tour. Ice caves are ever-changing and unpredictable natural phenomena. We usually visit the Crystal Cave at Breiðmerkurjökull during this tour but when the Crystal Cave is inaccessible we will most likely visit Katla Ice Cave. Which ice cave is chosen will however always depend upon the conditions and safety considerations on the day, sometimes a different ice cave will be visited. If conditions do not allow us to visit an ice cave a glacier hike will be offered as an alternative.
  • Most travellers can participate
  • This experience requires good weather. If it’s cancelled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund

What we saw was good. However, I think more could have been fitted in. Eg on the last day we saw the canyon but other than that just travelled back to Reykavik and were back pretty early. We could have used those two hours to see other points of interest such as the crater. Or
