Golden Circle: Platinum | Secret Lagoon & Friðheimar Tomato Greenhouse Lunch
Though many Iceland travelers tour the Golden Circle, most end up on a busy group tour, fighting throngs of travelers on this popular sightseeing route. Avoid the crowds on this guided, small-group excursion, where you cruise the Golden Circle with only 12 travelers in your group. Highlights include stops at waterfalls, geysers, and a national park—an included lunch—and a visit to an off-the-beaten-path attraction, Secret Lagoon.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon 2 Day Tour | Glacier Hike & Entire South Coast

See the famed waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, as well as the black sand beach and basalt columns at Reynisfjara. Hike on the Falljökull Glacier and watch giant icebergs float around Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.

Glacier Lagoon & Ice Cave Discovery 2 Day | Ice Cave, Northern Lights & South
Travel the entire south coast of Iceland with Hidden Iceland over two adventure filled days! Take in the impressive Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss waterfalls, as well as the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. Hike along the ridges of Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon before coming to our accommodation for the night. There’s a chance you’ll see the northern lights dancing across the sky. We start the next day at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon where the giant ice bergs float around and wash up on Diamond Beach. From here we meet up with our friends from Local Guide to embark on our Ice Cave Discovery adventure. We travel in their specialised super jeeps to get closer to the glacier. You'll get up close and personal to the astonishingly beautiful ice formations of an outlet glacier of the enormous Vatnajökull Icecap. The textures, light and colours will leave you in awe!

Thank you for the wonderful review for Hidden Iceland. The secret lagoon often lives up to its name when we arrive just as it opens to start the tour. We’re happy you liked it.
