    Day 2 - Round trip day tour visiting the Geysir Hot Spring, Hvammsvík geothermal sea baths, Gullfoss Waterfall, Þingvellir National Park and dairy farm lunch

    Day small group tour to the Golden Circle region. You will be picked up by small minivan (max 14 travellers) from your hotel - Þingvellir National Park, home of Iceland’s ancient Viking parliament and listed as a UNESCO’s World Heritage site will be our first stop. There you will take a walk to experience firsthand the geological phenomenon that is the Mid-Atlantic ridge.

    While you are in Iceland, there is a “must do” to try all the authentic Iceland has to offer. You get the chance to visit an Icelandic dairy farm and enjoy what Icelander’s call, "Made in satin”. That means enjoying food and products which the farmers make with their own hands.

    After lunch, head to the Geysir blow hole and then the Gullfoss waterfall. Then it is your chance to bathe in one of Iceland’s hot springs, the new Hvammsvík geothermal sea baths. These are luxury geothermal sea baths located in Hvalfjörður (whale fjord) and there you get the most stunning view while relaxing both mind and body. Return to Reykjavik in the late afternoon.

    Day 3 - South Coast Highlights: Skógafoss Waterfall, Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Reynisfjara Black Beach and Sólheimajökull Glacier Hike

    On this 11-12 hour Iceland South Coast small group tour (max. 10 travellers) you will be picked up from your hotel between 07:30 and 08:00. Seljalandsfoss waterfall is the first stop, with a walking trail that leads behind it. On sunny days you can see a beautiful rainbow and if you are lucky, a unicorn sliding down. Then, straight up, Skógafoss waterfall is the second stop.

    Then it is time to go glacier hiking on the Sólheimajökull Glacier. Walking on a glacier with Iceland’s most powerful volcano lying underneath it is a surreal experience. On top of it you will get hot chocolate and an Icelandic pastry.

    Reynisfjara or Black Sand Beach is the last stop before heading to the Viking lodge. This is where Game of thrones was filmed and this is where the troll is out in the ocean towing 3 mast ship to shore. This is where you see the famous beautiful basaltic rocks in the mountain.

    Be sure to carry warm clothing, rain gear and good shoes.
