Day 1: Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon:
Our first stop on the famous Golden Circle is the geothermal area, Geysir, home of the original erupting "geyser" and his little brother Strokkur. Catch the sight of super heated water bursting from the ground up to 25 meters high. Next we stroll down to Gullfoss, the undisputed queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Gullfoss, "the Golden Waterfall", is an amazing sight. The water flows 32 meters down three steps of lava rocks with breathtaking power and grandeur. Our last stop of the day is the Þingvellir National Park. Here lies the biggest natural lake in Iceland. Þingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site and the birthplace of Alþingi, the oldest existing parliament in the world founded by the Vikings more than a thousand years ago. Þingvellir is also a place of many geological wonders as it lies in the tectonic rift valley between America and Europe. It is completely surrounded by beautiful volcanoes created from the ongoing tectonic drift.
After the Golden Circle, we'll find the Secret Lagoon. The locals call this the “Secret lagoon” because it was known only to them for a long time. Now you have a chance to bathe in this outstanding pool in magical surroundings.
After a nice hot bath, we head back to Reykjavik over the Hellisheiði pass. You can expect to be at your accommodation place at 7 PM.
Day 2: South Coast:
We pick you up in the morning in Reykjavik and head towards the east, through the southern lowland to Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s 4th largest glacier. From there we move towards Iceland‘s most famous black sand beach, Reynisfjara, where the roaring Atlantic ocean fiercely hits the shore. Just off the beach, Reynisdrangar basalt stacks majestically rise from the sea. Our next stop is Vík, the most southern town in Iceland here we’ll stop at the local church. After we have explored Vik, we turn around and start making our way back to the city. On the way back we will stop at Skógafoss, the roughly 65m high cascade, and the picturesque Seljalandsfoss, where you’ll have a chance to walk behind the waterfall during the summer. At all sites, you will have enough time to enjoy and make great memories to take home
Day 3: Whale Watching:
The animals most frequently seen on tours are the Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins and Porpoises. Our qualified guides do an excellent job with providing you with information and giving you the best opportunities to see and learn all about the wildlife. Learn all about the sea life while coasting through Faxaflói bay. Please understand that weather and sea conditions play have a big role in how much we actually see. However, each experience is very unique and well worth booking! No two whale watching trips are ever the same. Due to unreliable impending forecasts and such, we take sea conditions and weather into account when booking the trips. We will put you in the best situation possible.
We rarely have to go further than 15 km from the harbor. For your comfort and warmth, we offer special suits on board. We do advise that you wear your warmest clothes - hats, scarves, gloves etc – as it can get very cold (even on the warmest days) when the boat is in motion. We also offer hot drinks and soup in our on-board café. Our boats are built so that you have the option to watch the whales from inside as well. With the large windows and inside warmth, you can enjoy the animals of the North Atlantic from a very comfortable view. Each trip takes about 2.5 - 3.5 hours.
The order of the days may change depending on availability on each tour.
Pick up is at 08:00 am from your hotel or a nearby meeting point in Reykjavík. Picking everyone up can take up to 30 minutes, your patience is much appreciated.
