Day 2

Full Day Golden Circle Tour + South Coast

On this day, guests will embark on a private golden circle tour! The tour will make stops at:

  • Þingvellir national park

  • Geysir geothermal area

  • Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls

  • Eyjafjallajökull volcanic glacier

  • Hvolsvöllur and Hella villiage

As an added bonus, during our tour we will stop at a geothermal bakery. You'll have the unique opportunity to witness the geothermal baking process firsthand as the bakers unearth a piping-hot loaf of freshly baked bread from the warm black sand. Guests can savor this hot, earthy bread served with luscious Icelandic butter.

 

After our tour, we will return to the hotel, leaving guests the freedom to enjoy the night however they see fit.

Day 3

Live Lava Show Experience

Following breakfast, guests will head to the Lava Centre for an interactive and high-tech educational exhibition depicting volcanic activity, earthquakes and the creation of Iceland over millions of years.

The Lava Show is the only place in the world where you can safely experience hot molten lava in close proximity as the show recreates a volcano eruption by pouring molten lava (1,100°C / 2,000 °F) into the showroom and over ice.

After our lava show, guests will have the freedom to enjoy the night however they see fit.
