Itinerary

Day 1. The famous Golden Circle, Langjökull glacier and Ţjórsárdalur Valley.



We start the day by visiting Ţingvellir national park – the site of the world´s oldest parliament. Ţingvellir is on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 2004. The entrance to Thingvellir is a walk through the Almannagjá gorge, visible evidence of tectonic plate activity on the European-American fault-line which is still pushing the two continents apart and creating Iceland today, geology’s youngest country. Next we head to Geysir geothermal area, where we admire the powerful Geysers, Where the active Strokkur reaches the incredible height of 20 meters. From Geysir we head to the majestic Gullfoss, the Golden waterfalls. Onwards towards the mighty Langjökull glacier with endless snowfields and unique panoramic views. Heading down from the glacier, we´ll have some serious jeep fun at the glaciers edge. Next we head inland and explore the beautiful Ţjórsárdalur valley – the Gjáin ravine and Hjálparfoss waterfall.

Overnight:
Hrauneyjar area


Day 2. Landmannalaugar and Fjallabak



Today we head to explore the remote and breath taking highlands of south Iceland. On our way to Landmannalaugar we pass the active volcano Hekla and visit Ljótipollur crater (ljótipollur literally means “ugly pond” in Iceland). Once we arrive at Landmannalaugar you will be amazed by the colourful rhyolite mountains surrounding the area. This area is highly recommended for nature lovers and those interested in geology. It offers numerous hiking trails for long and short hikes. At Landmannalaugar you´ll have a chance to bathe in natural hot springs and relax a bit before continuing the highland adventure. Next we continue on the Fjallabak route which is one of the most scenic trails in the interior highlands of Iceland, perhaps the most colourful and diversified of the many interesting mountain tracks, rugged colourful landscape of unsurpassed beauty. One of the highlights of the route is Eldgjá, one of the most interesting sights in this part of the country. Here nature has created a unique spectacle splitting mountains and valleys in its course creating a gigantic 30 km long gash into the earth, in some places is up to 600m wide and up to 200m deep. The volcanic fissure is considered to be the greatest of its kind on earth. Ófćrufoss, used to be one of the country´s most beautiful waterfall, framed by a natural bridge, arching over the rivers gorge that collapsed years ago. There is marvellous scenery along this route. Please note, there are no shops/gas stations on the highland route from Landmannalaugar to Kirkjubćjarklaustur.

Overnight:
Kirkjubćjarklaustur


Day 3. The scenic south coast



We head back towards Reykjavík, while on our way we visit some of the most stunning location on Iceland´s south coast. The first stop is Vík – Iceland´s southernmost village. Next we head to Reynisfjara with the black sand beach and stunning basalt columns. We continue to explore yet another stunning sea-side location – Dyrhólaey promontory which has a rich bird life during the summer season, including Iceland´s most popular bird – the puffin. We visit Sólheimsandur beach where we have some super jeep action. Before returning back to the capital, we also stop at two stunning waterfalls – Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
