Iceland’s Golden Circle in Depth

Experience the highlights of Iceland’s Golden Circle on a five-day loop from Reykjavik. When we say you’ll see the hotspots, we mean it – whether you’re soaking in the steamy geothermal waters of the Secret Lagoon or marvelling at the eruptions of the Strokkur Geysir. But this is the land of not only fire, but ice too – and where better to experience the latter than Solheimajokull Glacier, and the south coast’s series of pristine waterfalls? In between all these adventures – led by an expert local leader – you’ll stay on a sustainable working farm to learn what rural life is like on this majestic isle.
