Collect your 4×4 that will be your transport for the remainder of your trip. Exit Reykjavik and embark on your circumnavigation tour around Iceland.
Start with the famous Golden Circle route towards your first hotel, Skalakot Manor Hotel. On the Golden Circle tour, you will see Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area. You should stop for lunch at Fridheimar tomato farm for an educational visit at a working greenhouse producing tomatoes year-round. You can also add a stop at the secret lagoon for a quick dip into a real hot spring – less popular than the Blue Lagoon and far more authentic. Next, drive past Seljalandsfoss waterfall before you reach the wonderful Skalakot Manor Hotel.
The next day, you will drive a short distance to the roots of Solheimajokull Glacier, where you will meet with your private guide for a glacier walk (don’t worry, all your gear is included). Enjoy one of our local recommended restaurants for lunch, or we can arrange a picnic in situ. After lunch, you will go on another private tour on ATVs around the famous black lava beach. This is an opportunity to get far away from the crowds at Reynisfjara and see the impressive and extensive beach in much more privacy.
