After breakfast, you will be collected at your hotel by your guide and private super jeep. Today you will enjoy the famous Golden Circle tour.

You will be taken to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, designated for both its beauty and historical importance in world history. No place in Iceland epitmises the history of Iceland and the Icelandic nation (including the Viking history) better than Thingvellir. Home to the world’s oldest Parliament, which was established in approximately 930, this special location hosted the general assembly until 1798. The National Park itself also contains natural wonders on an international scale with a geologic history and biosystem that can be enjoyed first-hand on your visit.

You will then be taken to visit the fantastic great Geysir and the bubbling hot springs, together with the ever erupting Strokkur geyser which erupts every 3-7 minutes. A short stop for lunch and you will then be taken by your guide to visit the impressive waterfalls of Gullfoss, the queen of Iceland’s waterfalls. Certainly regarded as one of Iceland’s spectacular waterfalls, this is located on the white-coloured Hvita River.

Your final stop of the day en-route back to your hotel will be at the 'Secret Lagoon'. This is the oldest swimming pool made in Iceland in 1891, a geothermal pool that will be a great place for you to relax and digest all the amazing sights you have enjoyed today. The water is warm, holding steady at a comfortable 38-40 Celsius (100-104 Fahrenheit) all year. As you float in the lagoon, enjoy the pristine natural surroundings and steam rising into the air, giving the atmosphere an almost magical feeling.

Your hotel today is Hotel Grimsborgir in South Iceland, where you will stay in one of the luxurious and private Hotel Apartments.

After breakfast at Hotel Grimsborgir you will begin your south coast tour, a tour of fire and ice, the two forces that make up Iceland's geology. Your private super jeep will drive you towards the 2010 erupted volcano Eyjafjallajokull.

Following breakfast you will depart from your hotel and will be driving by private guide in your super jeep to the Reykjanes Peninsula . There will be a few important stops on the way, one such stop will be Bridge between continents, where the New World meets the Old World, geologically speaking. The European and American plates come together there, and the line of their meeting "comes ashore" at this point with many signs of geological disturbance through the ages.

Your super jeep will then take you to the Gunnuhver hot mud spring area, where mud pools and steam are collectively named Gunnuhver after the female ghost that was laid there. The ghost had been known to cause great disturbances until a priest set a trap for her and she fell into a spring! All of this happened approximately 400 years ago. The mud pools are created where steam from boiling geothermal reservoir water emanates and condenses, mixing with surface water. The water is acidic and the fresh lava rock forms as clay. The steaming of the ground at Reykjanes intensified itself greatly following 2006 due to pressure changes at the reservoir. You will have a chance to explore the Gunnuhver mud pool and witness the water bursting from the ground, this natural display of forces is truly remarkable. 

Your super jeep will then drive you to the famous Blue Lagoon, one of the wonders of the world. You will be served the famous blue-coloured Blue Lagoon cocktail, experience the contrasting blue waters with black lava and have time to relax in the hot geothermal waters. It is possible to add a range of spa treatments and massages at the Blue Lagoon.

You will then head to Hotel Marina where you will check-in, have dinner and relax for the evening.
