- The Golden Circle
Day 1 Keflavik to Hella
Arrive into Iceland, pick up your car and head in land to discover your first taste of southern Iceland.
Day 2 Golden Circle
Witness a plethora of geological activity today along the renowned Golden Circle. Geysers shoot vast jets of boiling water into the air at the Geysir Geothermal Area, while nearby Gullfoss falls offer an unforgettable sight. Later, make your way to Thingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America are pulling apart creating a rift valley.
Day 3 Hella
Wake early to enjoy a full day exploring the south coast. First up, the 60m high cascading waterfall of Seljalandfoss, where you can get close enough to feel its tremendous power. Continue on to Vik and Black Sand Beach, with its enormous basalt stacks, roaring Atlantic waves and volcanic sands.
Day 4 Hella to Kalfafell
Venture into more remote lands as you head east along the Ring Road to the isolated hamlet of Kalfafell, overlooked by awe-inspiring glaciers. En route, stop off at the Fjadrargljufur Canyon, up to 100m deep and over a mile long, the perfect spot for an afternoon hike.
Day 5 Kalfafell
Today you’ll appreciate where Iceland gets its name, as you get up close to the magnificent Breidamerkurjokull Glacier. Perhaps step foot on this frozen expanse with a local glacier hiking tour. Alternatively, the still blue waters of nearby Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon offer an unforgettable perspective, as chunks of ice flow through the lagoon and rest on the black sand.
Day 6 Kalfafell to Reykjavik
Drive back along the south coast to Reykjavik, perhaps stopping en route for a walk to the Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River and a dip in the warm waters. Arrive at the world’s most northerly capital where there is plenty to do and see. Maybe head to the top of Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and ocean.
Day 7 Reykjavik
After a relaxed breakfast, drive to the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most popular attraction. Bathe in the soothing waters and enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of a silica face mask. This evening take a walk along lively Laugavegur Street and find a cosy bar to reflect on your Icelandic adventure.
Day 8 Reykjavik to Keflavik
Head to Keflavik airport to drop off your car before your onward flight.
