Golden Circle (Iceland)
By far Iceland Grand Discovery is our largest tour. This comprehensive road trip allows you to discover all of Iceland’s magnificent regions. You have ample time to explore and discover everything Iceland has to offer. If you have time on your hands and you want a relaxing tour of Iceland then this is the self-drive tour for you!
Along the way, you’ll pass many of the volcanoes, waterfalls, glaciers, and seascapes that make Iceland’s landscapes so magical and unforgettable. Take to the open road and discover the natural wonders and welcoming towns of Iceland‘s Ring Road and Snaefellsnes Peninsula!
You’ll also enjoy the benefits of a relaxed traveling pace and minimal hotel changes through your stay, so there‘s more time to experience the true essence of Iceland‘s nature and culture.
Each day enjoys inspiring guided short hikes on trails in both world-famous areas as well as lesser-known but equally fantastic destinations. Some examples include majestic Asbyrgi Canyon, the beloved Thorsmork and Myvatn Nature Reserves and the colorful Landmannalaugar hot spring wilderness. Your expert guide will also share Icelandic stories and folktales connected to the areas where you hike. A highlight of the trip is a visit to charming Siglufjordur, a town becoming known for its excellent outdoor recreation.
At the end of the day, relax in comfortable countryside hotels with private bathroom facilities. Several hotels have outdoor geothermal hot tubs a perfect way to end a day on scenic trails!
This tour combines enjoyable short hikes with sightseeing in a small coach or tour van. Each hike generally ranges from 1- 5 hours, with the longest hiking done on Day 6. Hikes offered during the tour are a mixture of easy and moderate routes. Participants do not need to be expert hikers, but they should be in reasonable physical shape. The trip hiking is also designed to be flexible: each day’s hiking will be adjusted to your group’s general fitness level, weather and trail conditions.
A big appeal of hiking in Iceland is that it is an authentic, natural experience. This means most hiking paths in Iceland are not paved. Expect trails to have lava rocks, loose gravel, soft dirt and muddy areas. In some cases, trails follow narrow paths created from sheep trails. We highly recommend that you bring hiking poles/alpine walking sticks on this tour.
The guide has the right to change hiking routes in the itinerary based on weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Some of the days involve driving on unpaved wilderness tracks in the highlands. Be prepared to expect bumpy roads! It‘s all part of the authentic adventure and fun of exploring the highlands!
