Seeing the Main Places in the Icelandic Nature


We drive along the south coast seeing volcanos, waterfalls, glaciers, lava fields, black volcanic beaches and the glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon.

When heading along the east coast up to the north we'll be driving along the fjords or crossing the interior wilderness on our way to lake Myvatn. Myvatn is worth exploring so we'll take one day to do so. Please remember to take your bathing suits, we might be able to go to the Earth baths.

Finally we cross the interior of Iceland doing national park Thingvellir, geothermal area Geysir and golden waterfall Gullfoss. If winter we'll have to take a different road. This tour covers Iceland with only short breaks on the way.

If you'd like to take 7-10 days to really enjoy the visit then please contact me for a custom tour.

Time of year, traffic, weather and conditions may affect the tour greatly, especially during winter when roads can be closed. In winter we cannot cross the interior on our way back to Reykjavik because the wilderness roads are not kept open in winter. Travels in Iceland should always be taken with adventurous and flexible mind! We might need to reschedule hotels etc because of force malleure.
