4 Days | Best of Iceland

If you wish to see the best sights Iceland has to offer, this 4-day tour will be everything you could ask for. 

The tour will start with the Snæfellsnes Penninsula, which is often called a "miniature Iceland". The area is a combination of waterfalls, lava fields, black sand beaches, and Icelandic folklore. Early during the day, you will visit Kirkjufell, a mountain that played an important role in the "Game of Thrones" series. The area is covered with volcanic craters and other amazing natural formations. At the local black sand beach, Djúpalónssandur, you will be able to test your strength, according to history, only those fishermen earned the right to fish, who were strong enough to lift the stones in the harbor. After several other mementos of the volcanos, you will arrive in Arnarstapi, a charming fishing village, and at Budakirkja, the famous Black Church. 

We will be starting the next day by visiting the beloved Golden Circle which is an essential part of every Icelandic holiday. The Golden Circle leg of the tour starts at the Þingvellir National Park, where the first parliament in Iceland took place in the year 930. We will also show you the mother of all geysers, Geysir, and the wonderful Gullfoss waterfall as well. If the weather conditions are ideal, we will be able to see the Langjökull glacier, on our way to the hotel, we will end our day at the Secret Lagoon, a swimming pool opened in 1981 and powered by the local geothermal activity. 

The following day, after breakfast, we will be visiting two famous waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. If the weather allows, we will escort you behind the waterfall curtains at Seljalandsfoss, while Skogafoss was featured on "Game of Thrones". One of the highlights of this day follows, a glacier hike on the breathtaking Sólheimajökull glacier. Next, we wish to show you the idyllic Reynisfjara black sand beach, the surrounding cliffs are the home to hundreds of puffins during the summer season.

The following day, we will drive you to the unforgettable Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the neighboring Diamond Beach. The latter sight was named due to the clear ice that gathers on the black sand beach. As for the historical segment, we stop at Hofskirkja. This is a turf-roof church, only six of them are left in the whole country and apart from this tour, it would be unlikely to encounter another of these architectural gems. On the way back to Reykjavik, we stop at the Laki lava field, which appeared in 1783/1784, after the deadly volcano next door has erupted. The tour concludes with a dinner stop and you will return to town around 8:00 in the evening with a lot of great new memories.
