Breakfast at the hotel. Today we drive to the popular sightings Gullfoss, Strokkur and Thingvellir which are part of the famous Golden Circle. Strokkur is a geyser that erupts about every 7 minutes and sprouts a fountain of water in the air, sometimes reaching up to 40 meters.
Gullfoss is an iconic waterfall which you can see from many angles, each more spectacular than the other. The water plummets down 32 meters into a canyon which walls reach up to 70 meters in height.
Thingvellir is a national park in the municipality of Bláskógabyggð in southwestern Iceland, about 40 km northeast of Iceland's capital, Reykjavík. Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological significance, and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland.
Dinner and overnight accommodation at Hvolsvollur Hotel or similar.
Breakfast at the hotel. Today we will drive along Iceland’s South Coast. Here the first stops will be at the beautiful waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Then we will proceed to the Jökulsárlón Glacier – part of Vatnajökull, Europe’s biggest glacier – where an amazing experience is waiting for us: a boat trip to sail between the icebergs of the glacier!
After the boat trip, there will be sometime for taking pictures of the so called Diamond Beach, a strip of black volcanic sand filled with icebergs washed up on shore from the glacier lagoon.
Dinner and overnight accommodation at Dyrholaey or similar.
Breakfast at the hotel. We keep exploring the south coast, continuing our tour towards Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland.
Nearby the village, we will stop to Reynisfjara beach, which is known for its black sand and odd cliffs. You can again recogonize it from Bollywood. This is also the area where you might see the cute puffins – the unofficial national bird of Iceland. Then we drive to Sólheimajökull, part of the larger Mýrdalsjökull glacier which lies atop the Katla caldera.
The glacier is melting rapidly owing to warmer annual temperatures due to climate change. It is possible that many of the country's glaciers will become extinct within the next century.
