Golden Circle and Kerid Crater

Three of Iceland’s most popular attractions

The Golden Circle Iceland tour offers three of Iceland’s most popular attractions – Þingvellir national park, Geysir, and Gullfoss. Those three stops are part of the classic route. To make the best out of your day, we added some of our favorite extra stops.

Þingvellir

Our first stop on this Golden circle iceland tour is at Þingvellir, the place of the first Icelandic parliament. The first parliament was established there in 930 AD and it is, therefore, the oldest one in Europe. Besides all the history you can also see the Mid-Atlantic ridge. This is the split of the tectonic plates that divides Europe from North America.

Geysir

After that, we stop at Geysir. This “water puddle” gives its name to all the other Geysers in the world. “Strokkur”, the little brother of Geysir, is still active today and he erupts every 5-8min and it is truly a big spectacle.

Gullfoss

Last but not least is Gullfoss, the golden waterfall. This is oone of the main attraction of the Golden circle iceland Tour. In the summertime, up to 130.000 liters per second are running down this powerful waterfall. In good weather conditions, we are also able to see Langjökull glacier as well.

Kerid volcanic crater

Kerid is a volcanic crater that is located in the Grímsnes area. It is part of the Western Volcanic Zone, which includes the Reykjanes peninsula and the Langjökull Glacier. The caldera of the crater is well intact and about 55m deep and 270m wide. Another remarkable feature is the aquamarine blue water of the lake that can be found in the crater.

Leaving for the South Coast Adventure

We leave the capital area behind for this glacier hike iceland tour and we will soon reach the countryside. Along the way, we can see Hellisheiðarvirkjun, the geothermal power plant for Reykjavik. It is located in Hengill, a high-temperature area that provides the capital area with hot water and electricity. Steam is billowing up everywhere.

Mýrdalsjökull Glacier

As we venture south, we will drive through the typical lowlands of this area. In the distance, we can already see the mountains and the ice cap of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. On sunny days it is also possible to see the Westman Islands shimmering in the Atlantic Ocean.

Skogafoss Waterfall

Our first stop is Skogafoss Waterfall. It is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the country and was even featured in Game of Thrones. His 60m drop will keep you speechless for sure. Your guide will tell you all about the hidden treasure chest behind the waterfall and with some luck, you will be the first one to find it.

Sólheimajökull Glacier

Now it’s time for the highlight of the tour. The glacier hike iceland. Besides waterfalls, Iceland is also known for glaciers. 11% of the country is covered by ice. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier coming down the fourth biggest glacier of Iceland, called Mýrdalsjökull. We put on our safety gear and start our hike on the glacier. The hike is approximately 2,5h long with 1,5h spend on the glacier.

Reynisfjara – Black Beach

Now it’s time to hit the road again. After a short ride, we stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach. The beach was once rated as one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world and as soon as you put a foot on the beach, you will know why. Basalt columns and the well known Reynisdrangar rock formations await you. Your guide will tell you all the interesting stories and sagas that are connected to this place.

Vík í Mýrdal

Having now reached our most southern point, this charming fishing village is the center of the southern region. On the tour, we will pay a visit to the church where we can enjoy a great view of the coastline.

Seljalandsfoss and Gljufrabui Waterfalls

Heading back in the direction of Reykjavik, our last stop will be the ever-popular Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall lays underneath the well known Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that erupted in 2010. If conditions allow, we take a walk behind the waterfall’s curtain before paying a visit to its nearby cousin Gljúfrabúi, found hidden from view in the mountainside.

Iceland in Miniature

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is often called “Iceland in Miniature”. It is the perfect combination of waterfalls, rough lava fields, black sand beaches, and Icelandic folklore. We head west and our first stop is a small town called Borgarnes. After a quick stop to buy some snacks and refreshments we are on our way to the Peninsula. In good weather conditions, we can already see the glacier that sits atop a stratovolcano that is well known from the Novel “Journey to the center of the earth”.

Berserkjahraun Lava Field

The first stop is Berserkjahraun lava field. It was created around 4.000 years ago after the three surrounding volcanos erupted shortly after each other. The name also comes from an exciting story back from the Viking age. Your guide will tell you all about it and he’ll show you the way to a secret and hidden waterfall.

Kirkjufell

The most photographed mountain in Iceland is next on our list. You probably noticed it on the TV show “Game of Thrones”. It is surrounded by a beautiful waterfall you’ll get enough time to stroll around the walking paths to explore the area.

Saxhóll Volcanic Crater

Countless volcanic craters can be seen during the drive. Now it’s time to put a foot on one of the dormant craters on the peninsula. Saxhóll was created around 3.000 years ago and it is 100m high. A staircase makes the walk to the top very easy and the reward is a brilliant view over the surrounding lava fields.

Djúpalónssandur

Iceland is known for its black sand beaches. Djúpalónssandur is one of them and this place will definitely amaze you. Back in the day, a harbor for fishing boats could be found here and all the fishermen had to prove their strength beforehand. In order to do that, they had to lift stones of different weights. Only the strongest were able to secure a spot on one of the boats. The stones still can be found on the beach and you will have a chance to test your own strength.

Arnastapi

The next stop will be in Arnastapi, a beautiful and charming fishing village. During the time, powerful waves eroded the cliffs and left the stunning rock formations behind that can be seen today. Also, a sculpture of Bárður Snæfellsás, the guardian of the Penninsula, can be found here.

Budakirkja Black Church

The church was build in 1703. After the Danish king decided to dismiss the church in 1819, several residents fought for the reclamation and in 1849 they got the allowance to build a new chapel. A woman named Steinunn saved some of the old artifacts and thanks to her, we can still see them today.

Seal Colony at Ytri-Tunga

We are already on our way to Reykjavik, but we will have one last stop at a beautiful golden-colored beach. Huge seal colonies can be found at this beach during the whole year and your guide will lead you to the place where you can find them.
