We take care of all the planning for you, provide you with a car of your choice, a detailed travel plan and a good road map. We also book your accomodation for you during your tour. The only thing you have to book yourself is your accomodation in Reykjavík before and after your round trip. Please note that the transfer to and from Keflavik airport is not included in the price of the tour. We recommend our private Door to Door pickup service or our Airport Express service, which can be booked seperately through our sales office.

Day 1. The South. Ca. 160 km travelled.

Explore Iceland’s famous circle of wonders “The Golden Circle”, i.e. Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall   and Geysir hot spring area. Your accommodation for the first night will be in the area.

 

Day 2. Kjölur. Ca. 160 km travelled.
