Tips for guide
Day 1. The Golden Circle and the Secret lagoon
This classic drive begins with a visit to Thingvellir, a National Park and site of the World’s oldest parliament. Thingvellir National park is on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2004. The entrance to Thingvellir is a walk through the Almannagjá gorge, visible evidence of plate tectonic activity on the European-American fault-line which still today is pushing the two continents apart and creating Iceland. From the tectonic plates we will drive to the thermal landscape around iconic Geysir with the erupting hot springs, where it´s sibling Strokkur blows up every 7-10 minutes or so. It´s ideal to enjoy the scenery by Geyser for 30 minutes or so. After Geyser we move onwards to the rainbow-ridged waterfall Gullfoss one of Europe’s most powerful waterfalls. After Gullfoss it´s ideal to have a late lunch at Fridheimar Geo greenhouses. Then not to forget a relaxing geo thermal bath at the secret lagoon, really the perfect way to end the day before arriving at your hotel. Stay the night on the South coast at a carefully chosen hotel.
Day 2. The stunning south Coast towards the glacier lagoon
This day is all about the south coast with glacier volcano’s.
Beautiful water falls, like the impressive Seljalandsfoss, where the brave can walk behind the cascade. On route we will have lunch at some cozy little restaurant. Stop at Vik, a little village where perhaps you can look at some Icelandic wool sweaters.
You will have the chance to drive through one of the largest lava fields in the world with amazing formations and colors and hopefully see some green moss. Sights like Skaftafell and Svinafellsjokull glacier are ideal for a photo or two and you will see both locations. In the late afternoon we arrive at the glacier lagoon and stay at a nearby hotel. In the evening we will be on the lookout for the Northern lights.
We will stay close to the glacier lagoon at a carefully chosen hotel. Let´s Hunt the Aurora…
Day 3. Ice cave explorer
The last day of this wonderful adventure is also full of amazing locations. We start the day with a visit to the unique Crystal Ice caves, close to the glacier lagoon. This ice adventure is simply unique and since they are totally natural they can change depending on weather conditions and other factors. Then on route towards Reykjavik along the south coast to Reynisfjara beach. The south with it´s beautiful coast-line and spectacular rock formations, this is where you have the black volcano beaches of the south, miles and miles of black beach with and amazing panoramic views.
Then to the powerful waterfall Skógafoss that carries water from two glacier volcano’s, Eyjafjallajokull and Myrdalsjokull.
Arrival at your hotel in Reykjavik in the late afternoon, hopefully in time for dinner.
