The Golden Circle is a popular day trip and includes some of Iceland’s most stunning sights: Gullfoss waterfall, Strokkur geyser, and Þingvellir National Park.
After our fantastic morning exploring Breiðamerkursandur and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, we got kitted out with crampons, helmets, and pick axes. We piled back into the mini bus and headed off to the Svínafellsjökull glacier.
I can pretty much describe 2015 as an unexpected quarter-life crisis. I didn’t see it coming and ran slap bang into a wall with ‘WTF are you going to do with your life’ written on it.
During our two day tour, Diddi took us on a little detour in the mini bus to visit a small glacier. Driving off road through snow covered hills and a 5 minute hike later, we were on a small peak overlooking Hoffellsjökull.
I was very excited to visit Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. In fact it was one of the main reasons I booked onto this particular tour. Having seen a lot of beautiful photos of the lagoon whilst researching our trip, I was super pysched.
On the second morning of our Extreme Iceland tour, we were taken to Jökulsárlón black sand beach. Unlike our time at the black sand beach in Vik, the sea was calm and the sun was out, making it a peaceful place to spend the first part of the morning.
One of the highlights of our trip has to be the two day tour of the south coast and Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon, that we went on with Extreme Iceland. Just two days being taken around some of Iceland’s most beautiful sights, was enough to make me fall in love with it.
