5 day guided tour - The Blue Ice cave, Golden circle and Snæfellsnes Whale Watching

129,900ISK nov - mar

Description

Join this tour and discover the true magic of Iceland. For the first two days we drive along Iceland's south coast to discover its stunning glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, strong rivers and waterfalls. You will also see an amazing black beach scattered with icebergs, next to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is where huge icebergs float in ice cold water and seals swim around them. The highlight of the tour is a visit to a natural ice cave inside Vatnajökull glacier. The ice in the cave is spectacularly blue and a popular attraction.

In day 3 we go for the Golden circle which is the most popular day tour in Iceland. Geysers, The Golden waterfall and Thingvellir are classic destinations for any visitor to our island. We want to add something unique to your experience and that's why we will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerid. 
In day 4 and 5 we go for a fairy-tale adventure through the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Less than 3 hours from Reykjavik, this area combines all the wonders of Iceland in one place: the sea crashing upon the sandy shores, jagged lava fields, waterfalls, imposing cliffs for hiking and photography, and small fishing villages for those who are curious about the culture Iceland.
