Day 2 of 5 | South Coast Highlights

Your Hidden Iceland guide will pick you up from your Reykjavík accommodation at 8:30 to embark on our adventure to explore the entire south coast of Iceland. We’ll visit Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, then we’ll have some lunch before or after you explore the black sand beach at Vík. We continue our drive further east where we’ll soon start to see the spectacular glaciers and Iceland’s highest mountains. We hike along the ridges of the gorge with the impossible name, Fjaðrárgljúfur. Afterwards we head to our accommodation for the night at Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon. The hotel is in a great location for seeing the northern lights on a clear winter’s night, with a wake up call list offered by the hotel, if you haven’t spotted them before bed. You have a dinner reservation on your name for 19:00 in the hotel restaurant.

Day 3 of 5 | Ice Caving, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon & Diamond Beach

After breakfast this morning we are heading to one of our all time favourite locations in Iceland, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. It is here we meet with our partners at 10:00 in the area who are taking you to the real highlight of the trip, your ice cave adventure. Together in their specialised super jeeps they take you over the rugged terrain to a more remote part of the glacier. From here it’s only a short walk to witness the blues and textures of these natural works of art. Once you come back to to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon you’ll take some time to explore this enormous glacier lagoon and the icebergs which float around here glistening in the winter sun. This is one of our all time favourite locations in Iceland. Seals can often be spotted swimming amongst the icebergs. From there we make our way over to the Diamond Beach, where the icebergs from the lagoon flow with the tide out to the ocean and wash up on the shores of the black sand beach. This makes for some spectacular photos and one unique beach visit.

Along your way back we stop by a few more south coast sights, which give some opportunities for some walks in nature, until we come to our accommodation for the night at Hotel Skálakot, one of our favourite south Iceland accommodations. We’ll have dinner in their restaurant once you have settled into your room and refreshed after a day of exploring the magnificent glacier landscapes.

Inclusions: Accommodation at Hotel Skálakot, Private Ice caving tour
Accommodation: Hotel Skálakot in their Master Suite with extra bed and breakfast
Exclusions: Meals, unless stated otherwise

Day 4 of 5 | Golden Circle, Friðheimar Tomato Greenhouse

We depart our comfortable South Iceland accommodation and make our way into the Golden Circle. After a bit of driving you’ll get to see the wonders of the geothermal area of Geysir, the original exploding geyser, and its surrounding steam vents. Afterwards we’ll get to witness the force of Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls.

After a short drive we will enjoy a unique lunch inside Friðheimar reserved at 13:15. Having lunch amongst all the tomato plants in the greenhouse is something we are sure you will never forget.

After all this we drive onto the famous Þingvellir National Park which holds historical and geological significance being the site of the first known parliament in the world, where many of Iceland’s most important decisions were made. It is also a place of incredible beauty, sitting in the rift valley of the separating North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. (If you would like more time at the Silica lagoon you can ask your guide to drop the Þingvellir national park and drive directly to Silica hotel)

Afterwards we head towards hotel Silica, where you can spend the rest of the day relaxing after your guide drops you off. For 19:00 you have a dinner reservation on your name in the LAVA restaurant on the Blue Lagoon premises. By staying at the Silica Lagoon by Blue Lagoon you are getting a far more exclusive experience of the Blue Lagoon. You not only get premium admission to the Blue Lagoon included, but also access to the Silica Lagoon, which is only for guests of the hotel.
