Tour Description

On this trip, you will enjoy three of our best day hikes and travel the famous Golden Circle Route while still having the benefit of spending the night at your accommodation in the capital. Each day, we will pick you up in Reykjavík and take you out to some of Iceland’s best natural wonders.

Each evening, we bring you back to the capital and drop you off near your hotel or guesthouse. This is a carefully selected hiker’s package that contains one challenging, one moderate, and one easy hike along with a relaxing sightseeing minibus tour. On three of the four days, you will have the chance to bathe in natural geothermal pools, hot springs, and hot rivers!

We will start with our famous Reykjadalur Hiking Tour through Reykjadalur Valley near the town of Hveragerði in South Iceland. This easy hike begins only 40 minutes away from Reykjavík and offers a rare secluded look at every type of hot spring Iceland has to offer. The hike may be short and easy but is beautifully panoramic. In good weather, you will see all the way to the ocean and the surrounding smoky mountains. After about an hour of hiking, we will stop at the end of the valley where there is a naturally hot river. You will have time to enjoy the warm water and admire the surrounding landscapes before hiking back by the same route. This short but breathtaking trail will surely blow your mind!

On the second day, we will take a Superjeep and enter the Highlands area. The stunning glacier valley of the thunder god Thor (Þórsmörk) will give you the most unforgettable hiking experience while you climb up to the freshly formed craters, Magni and Modi, in the area where the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted in 2010. The views over the green valley all the way up and down are absolutely breathtaking. In good weather, you will be able to see for hundreds of kilometers all around the Highlands. Many who have hiked here claim that it is the most beautiful natural scenery that they have ever seen. We could not agree more!

After the challenging hike and the 12-hour tour, on the next day, we will take it easy with a minibus tour around Iceland’s most famous sightseeing route, the Golden Circle. We will visit the absolute must-see locations: the UNESCO site Thingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates drift apart; the majestic Gullfoss waterfall; and the famous Geysir Geothermal Area, where we will see a geyser that erupts frequently. In addition, we will visit the geothermal village of Fludir where we will take a relaxing bath in the Secret Lagoon, one of Iceland’s oldest geothermal pools.

On the last day, we will go to Landmannalaugar, the colorful geothermal oasis deep in the Icelandic Highlands, for a Superjeep and hiking adventure. We will visit breathtaking spots along the way and hike through unbelievably colorful rhyolite mountains. We will climb up the most impressive colorful peaks, Brennisteinsalda and Bláhnúkur. After the hike, you will have the chance to take a dip in a natural hot spring, one of the most characteristic Icelandic hot springs.

Don’t forget to bring a towel and bathing suit. Join us on this ultimate hiker’s dream tour!
