Golden Circle Private Tour

This private Iceland luxury tour takes you on the most popular journey through Iceland. You will see all of the beautiful spots of the Golden Circle.

The beautiful spots consist of three stunning sights: Þingvellir, Geysir, and Gullfoss. While exploring these locations we will also find other cool sites or activities in the area. We do our best to make this a satisfying experience for you.

Our focus is on making your day perfect!

We give you control in, what time the tour starts, how long you want to take at each spot and if you’d like to visit other attractions.

Itinerary

The first stop of the Golden Circle Private tour is Þingvellir National Park. This is where the old Viking parliament used to be. In a historical context, Thingvellir is extremely important. Thingvellir is also home of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart from one another. This tectonic activity has made its effect on the area and the visual outcome is beautiful.

Next stop is the Geyser Geothermal Area. This spouting hot spring named Geysir, was the most active geyser, in its earlier days. Geysir has been inactive for several years but his brother Strokkur, located next to him, spouts every 4-8 minutes. With boiling hot water up to 30 meters in the air, it is an impressive display of mother nature‘s power. Although the water is boiling hot when it leaves the ground, the spray cools down very quickly, which leaves you feeling refreshed.

A short drive from Geysir will bring us to the Gullfoss Waterfall. Gullfoss is a powerful multi-step waterfall in the Glaciers river, Hvítá. There are several different platforms that people can use to get different views over the waterfall. On the lowest platform, you can get right next to it and sense the overwhelming power of the waterfall.

Activities

There are many other beautiful places to see in the area and we will make sure to stop at some of them (included in the price). On this Private Iceland Luxury tour called the “Golden Circle”, you will have several options for activities.

Some examples would be:

  • Jump into gear on a glacier with our fun and action-packed snowmobile ride.
  • Take a ride in our helicopter and view the amazing scenery in the air (such as Glymur waterfall in Hvalfjörður, a 200-meter high waterfall and the second highest waterfall in Iceland).
  • Snorkel in the clear waters of Silfra in Þingvellir.
  • Relax in the Secret Lagoon.
  • Tour the geothermal power plant, Hellisheiðarvirkjun, which produces 100% clean geothermal energy and provides residents in Reykjavík with hot water.
  • Explore the trails with our Icelandic Horseback Riding.

The Glacier Helicopter Iceland Luxury Tours are the perfect escape while visiting Reykjavik. One of the most exciting luxury adventures Iceland has to offer begins at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport and you will make your way towards some of Iceland’s beautiful glaciers. You will fly over the Þórisjökull glacier and land on Iceland’s, second biggest glacier, Langjökull.

You will have the opportunity to step foot on the glacier and enjoy its magical view. The glacier is covered in snow all year round. You can breathe the fresh alpine air, make snow angels, or throw snowballs. From the peak of the glacier, you can see the distinctive features of the wild highlands of Iceland.

There are a few more sites to see, the shield volcano, Skjaldbreiður, and Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is located in a beautiful valley where the historic parliament site is located and it is the home of Iceland‘s largest natural lake. You will gaze at one of nature‘s wonders, the continental drift of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates.

Our Iceland Luxury Tours are truly unique.

Here are a few highlights:

Iceland's South Coast Private Luxury Tours

Private Iceland Luxury Tours of the South Coast 

We will begin our private Iceland luxury tour by driving along Road 1 through Hveragerði and Selfoss towards the South Coast of Iceland. The first stop is at the base of the volcano with the “unpronounceable” name (Eyjafjallajökull). In 2010, it brought most of Europe’s air traffic to a standstill. Next, we will visit a photogenic waterfall featured in one of the pictures above called Seljalandsfoss. From there your guide will take you to some other less known waterfalls and “caves” depending on the season and weather conditions.

We will also visit the Skóagoss waterfall, yet another big and photogenic waterfall also, featured in the pictures above. Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls are probably the most popular in Iceland and they are a must see!

You will have the opportunity to go to a nearby glacier named, Sólheimajökull, where a tour guide will assist you in taking a walking on the glacier.

We will end the perfect day with a visit to the Black Sand beach and Dyrhólaey Cliffs. If luck is on our side, we just might see some Puffins in Dyrhólaey.

South Iceland is truly spectacular. There so many places to see and visit, with our expert tour guides and trusted partners we’ll find the places and activities that fit you and your group the best.

Feel free to tell us about the places you wish to see in South Iceland. We will do our best to make your dream trip come true!

How about taking a Helicopter into a Glacier?

These Iceland luxury tours are a once in a lifetime unique experience! To fly free like a bird over the land of fire and ice, landing on the glacier and exploring it from the inside. Yes, it is as magical as it sounds. This incredible experience, in a helicopter, will depart from Reykjavik and take you to the Langjokull Glacier. Along the way, you will see amazing views of Reykjavik city, lava fields, craters, colorful mountain rangers, and hot springs.

In route from Reykjavik to the Langjokull Glacier, the helicopter guide will land in the beautiful hot spring area of the volcano, Hengill, which is an important source of geothermal energy for the south of Iceland.

We will soar through the air over, Thingvellir National Park and very clearly see the division between the two tectonic plates. Another impressive landmark is the Skjaldbreidur Volcano, featuring a perfect conic shape and crater.

As we approach the Langjokull glacier you will notice deep crevasses and steep ice falls. In this luxurious moment, you will view the glacier from above, making you feel like you in the Ice Age. We will land on Langjokull by the ice tunnels. The glacier‘s primitive and powerful forces can make you feel small against mother nature. If the weather doesn’t permit landing on the glacier, specially modified glacier vehicles will take you safely and securely to the ice tunnels.

The drive takes about half an hour and is guided by experienced English speaking guides.

Luxury Northern Lights Tours Iceland

Luxury Northern Lights Tours Iceland

Join us for a cozy evening cruise from Reykjavík Old Harbour in search of the natural phenomenon called the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis.

For 2-2.5 hours we will encounter many interesting sights. As we sail along the beautiful coastline and enjoy the city lights from a different view, we get to see Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Center. We will see the art sculpture, Sun Voyager, a dreamboat and an ode to the sun. We will also see the famous house Höfði, where the agreement to end the Cold War was signed in 1986.

Our main goal in this tour is to see the Northern Lights. In perfect timing, particles of the sun hit the earth’s atmosphere and it creates a bright light of colors fluctuating in shades of green, red, and sometimes purple.

Northern Lights Hunting

Our experienced crew will keep an eye out for the Aurora Borealis activity to find the best route, while you enjoy the scenery from the vast darkness behind the small island in Faxaflói Bay.  Among them is one of Iceland’s most famous Islands, Viðey, where the Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono’s lights up the night sky from October 9th – December 8th, along with a few other dates.

If it gets chilly, you can wrap a warm blanket around you or purchase a hot beverage from our onboard shop. These deluxe Iceland luxury tours offer a more personal experience and less crowded scenery. We recommend booking in advance because we limit group size to no more than 35 passengers to enhance customer satisfaction. On board, you will find information and educational multimedia about the Northern Lights.
