First-time visitors to Iceland are always keen to see the Golden Circle region which encompasses three of the island’s best-known natural features – Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir. However, on this week-long, year round self-drive itinerary you’ll also get to see two more of the breathtaking waterfalls for which this country is famed – Seljalandsfoss and the mighty Skogafoss.
Travel further east for a visit to Skaftafell, now part of Vatnajokull National Park, the largest national park in Europe. A short hike to Svartifoss, the ‘other-worldly’ waterfall backed by basalt columns, is recommended, as is a visit to the spectacular glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon. Here you can sail to the edge of the glacier front in an iceberg studded lake. At Vik take a walk along the black sand beach and view the distinctive and much-photographed coastline.
Available year round. Airfares between the UK and Iceland are quoted separately to ensure you receive the best price and are not included in the price. Please contact us for a flight quotation.
