Choose from the following tours:

1. Golden Circle


The Golden Circle is the name given to a 190 mile circular route which encompasses many of Iceland's most famous landmarks. The Golden Circle can easily be completed in one day and there are three major points of interest:

Geysir Hot Spring - a favorite stop with boiling mud pits, exploding geysers and the lively Strokkur which spouts water 30 meters into the air every few minutes.

Gullfoss Waterfall - an iconic waterfall in Iceland offering a spectacular view of the forces and beauty of untouched nature. Located in South Iceland on the Hvita river which is fed by Iceland's second biggest glacier, Langjokull. The water plummets down 32 meters in two stages into a rugged canyon which walls reach up to 70 meters in height. On a sunny day, a shimmering rainbow can be seen over the falls.

Thingvellir National Park - a UNESCO World heritage site and the location of the world's first parliament. The park is a site of historical, cultural and geological importance. It lies in a rift valley where the North American and Eurasian Plates are drifting apart causing cracks and canyons to be formed in the area.

Snowmobiling - G
o snowmobiling through the great outdoors and be prepared for an extreme adrenaline adventure, where you will see both beautiful sights and get closer to nature.

Icelandic Horses - The Icelandic horse is a unique breed; The Icelandic, as it is commonly referred to, is known for being sure-footed and able to cross rough terrain. It displays two gaits in addition to the typical walk, trot, and canter commonly displayed by other breeds.

2. South Coast of Iceland


Discover the South of Iceland. All that you desire is here - glaciers, volcanoes, mountains, and waterfalls! Everything that makes Iceland interesting to visit can be found on the south coast. Here, history follows you at every footstep, both ancient and recent.


3. Borgarnes - West Coast


The Long Glacier is the second largest in Iceland. It has an area of about 950 km2 and most of it rises between 1200 and 1300 m above sea level. It rests on a massif of hyaloclastite mountains. Today we have the opportunity to walk into the glacier with a guide and discover the glacier from the inside. The Hraunfossar - Lava Falls - are a beautiful and unusual natural phenomena. Clear, cold springs of subterranean water seep through the lava and run as tiny waterfalls and rapids into the Hvita River.
