You start with a visit to the capital Reykjavik, from where you can visit the famous Blue Lagoon. You then cross the Iceland Highlands and make a stop at Kerlingarfjöll. This mountain range houses the third biggest geothermal region in the area. You will pass spouting geysers, impressive waterfalls and unique landscapes. You continue to the north explore the Golden Circle.
Go whale watching in Akureyri and then continue the journey to the east and south of the country, where you will enter a world of deep canyons and black sand beaches full of icebergs. Let yourself be enchanted by this fascinating country!
This journey takes you along many of the volcanoes, waterfalls, glaciers, and seascapes that make Iceland’s landscapes so magical and unforgettable. We recommend a rental car with high clearance, like a Toyota Auris or up.
