Golden Circle, Landmannalaugar, Ring road

Western fjords


The Iceland Ring Road is a circular tourist route that starts and ends in Reykjavik and mainly runs along the coast as travelers travel around the entire circumference of the island. This is the best way to see Iceland's most famous monuments and attractions. The bypass is officially known as "Route 1". The route (with multiple detours possible, of course) follows the contour of the Icelandic National Highway. It is the main road that connects the capital with the country's main settlements, heading east to Hofn, then north to Akureyri and back to Reykjavik. Despite being a major traffic route, outside Reykjavik the Iceland Ring Road is a standard two-lane highway. At some river crossings, only one car can cross the river at a time. The Iceland Ring Road takes in the country's best sights, including black sand beaches, volcanic peaks, glacial lagoons and dramatic fjords. There are opportunities for hiking, mountain climbing, caving (and ice caving), whale watching, and more. Visit at the right time of year and you will see the Northern Lights. While Route 1 mostly follows the coast, a trip along the Iceland Ring Road can be combined with detours inland to the iconic Golden Circle or far west to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.


Golden Circle, Colorful mountains of Landmanalaugar

The Golden Circle is a 300-kilometer route to three of Iceland's most popular natural attractions: the Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir National Park. The three sites of the Golden Circle contain some of the most striking examples of Iceland's fascinating geological forces, stunning landscapes and rich culture. Thingvellir National Park is located in a rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.


1.Parliament of Iceland (930 - 1798) the original site of the longest-running parliament in the world.

2.Almannagja Gorge

3. Lake Tingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland.

4.Geysir and Strokkur geothermal area (Haukadalur Valley)

5.Gullfoss Waterfall "Golden Waterfall" (32m) by Sigríðury Tómasdóttir, the woman thanks to whom all waterfalls in Iceland are protected from foreign investors.

Landmannalaugar is truly unique, both geologically and aesthetically. It consists of wind-blown rhyolite mountains (of volcanic origin), creating an extraordinary spectrum of colors - from shades of red and pink, through greens and blues, to golden yellow. At the foot of the mountains lies the ebony-black Laugahraun lava field - a vast area of cooled magma originating from the eruption of the Brennisteinsalda volcano around 1477.

The Landmannalaugar area is also home to falcons and ptarmigans - two of the most famous mountain bird species in Iceland. Ptarmigans are an important food source for falcons, especially in spring when the winter white plumage of the male ptarmigan stands out against the dark ground. Birds from the grouse family can be hunted in late autumn. However, falcons have been protected by law since 1940.


Vik, Katla

According to legend, the name of the Katla volcano comes from the name of the witch Katla, who threw herself into a crevasse in the Mýrdalsjökull glacier when the crime she had committed was about to be revealed. Shortly afterwards, a huge glacial flood was to occur - local residents blamed the witch Katla for this and subsequent floods. 

The volcano is located in the southern part of Iceland and is located under the glacier proper.Mýrdalsjökull. It is built of basaltrhyolite i dacite. Subglacial caldera (10 × 14 km) reaches 750 m deep. The highest point of its edge reaches 1,380 m above sea level. and the edge itself is cut in three places.discharge glaciers. Together with volcanic columnsTo the north of the Katla caldera it forms a volcanic system 80 km long. Geothermal activity indicates the shallow location of the magma chamber. The Katla area lies within the territory established in 2011 Katla Geopark. Katla is one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland. Since Iceland was first settled in 870, it has erupted more than 20 times, often causing glacial floods - jökulhlaup. On average, Katla erupted twice every hundred years. The glacial floods of 1660, 1721 and 1755 were particularly powerful.

DAY 3 


Hornafjörður is a thriving community near Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, in the southeast of Iceland. The most populated area of the district is Höfn. In this region you are at the foot of Vatnajökull and the scenery is breathtaking. The commune is home to Vatnajökull National Park, the largest national park in Europe. Over the past few decades, tourism has grown tremendously and has, in fact, become a major economic sector in the community. A variety of services are available, including hotels, campsites, restaurants, shops, swimming pools, golf courses, marked hiking trails and various museums such as the maritime museum, two national park visitor centers and the great writer's center Þórbergur Þórðarson.

On the way to Höfn we will see:

- Waterfalls - Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, Gljufrabui 

- Reynisfjara Beach (Black Beach)

Borgarfjordur Eystri

Borgarfjordur Eystri is a fjord with a population of approximately 130 people, located in eastern Iceland. Its main settlement is Bakkagerdi. The area is famous for its natural beauty and the puffins that live there. A series of boardwalks and viewing platforms have been built at this nesting site. You can literally get up close to the puffins here without destroying their burrows. This is free of charge, although donations are gladly accepted. In fact, Iceland is home to more Atlantic puffins than any other country. The colorful reddish-orange beak appears only during the mating season (late April to August) and then disappears as winter approaches. This brightly colored beak has earned puffins the nicknames "sea parrot" and "sea clown."




Capital of the North. In the mid-16th century, the only buildings in Akureyri were shops and warehouses owned by Danish merchants. At that time, Iceland was the official territory of the Danish monarchy, and Icelanders were subject to its crown. While this has led to much harm, it has also undeniably contributed to the development of trade, communications and technology in many regions of Iceland. Akureyri was entered into the books as an official trading post in 1602. However, unlike the local community, merchants did not stay in the Akureyri area all year round, but returned to their native Denmark each winter. This, of course, was an obstacle to the development of the city, which may be one of the main reasons why Akureyri developed so slowly. For the next 200 years, Akureyri was used mainly as a base for Danish traders, thanks in large part to its large natural harbor. Nevertheless, we still had to wait a little longer for a sustainable life in Akureyri. The first real house was built in Akureyri in 1778 after Danish merchants were allowed to live in the settlement for the winter.

Currently, 19,000 people live in Akureyri.

Along the way we will see:

 -  Studlagil Canyon

 - Dettifoss Waterfall 193m/s - the largest waterfall in Iceland and the most powerful in Europe

 - Asbbyrgi Canyon. 

 - Husavik - the first area in Iceland to be settled.

 - Grjotagja Cave

 - Siglufjörður town


The Westfjords is a fairly large peninsula in northwestern Iceland. It is also one of the Icelandic administrative regions - its capital is Isafjordur (Ísafjörður). The peninsula is connected to the rest of the country by a narrow isthmus (7 km). Only about 7,000 people live here. people, most of them in the capital of the region. From a geological perspective, it is the cradle and oldest part of the island. The cape's rocks are up to 16 million years old! The coastline of the Westfjords is bristling with steep hills and oceanic fjords sharply cut into the land. This gives the landscape exceptional beauty, wildness and drama, but significantly impedes road communication. Most of the roads on the cape are mountain and gravel roads, which makes land communication difficult. In winter, many of these roads are completely or temporarily closed. 


 - Dynjandi Waterfall

 - Latrabjarg Cliffs - the westernmost point in Iceland

 - Raudisandur Beach

 - Hornstrandir Reserve

 - Dramgsnes Hot Springs 

DAY 6 


Djúpavík is a village located in the northwestern part of Iceland in the Westfjords. The village is approximately 70 km from Hólmavík, 280 km from Ísafjörður and 340 km from the capital, Reykjavík. Settlement began in Djúpavík in 1917, when a herring factory was built there. However, due to the economic crisis, the company went bankrupt in 1919. In September 1934, construction of a new factory began. Despite difficult conditions, the construction was completed in just a year and the factory began operating in July 1935. At the time, it was the largest concrete building in Iceland and one of the largest in Europe. Despite initial problems related to poor fishing, the factory quickly began to generate profits, increasing the standard of living and the financial status of the inhabitants of the entire region.

Herring catches began to decline after 1944. A sharp decline occurred in 1948, when there were almost no catches for two years. Despite attempts to maintain the company (processing other fish apart from herring), the factory was closed in 1954. Currently, there is a small, cozy hotel there and, on the site of the former factory, a great art gallery where you can see works of Icelandic artists. 


Hornstrandir Reserve 

Hornstrandir is the most inaccessible place on the Westfjords peninsula and probably the most inaccessible in all of Iceland. You can only get there by boat, and the tourist infrastructure is basically zero. It is located on the northernmost part of the peninsula. It delights with the beauty of raw tundra, picturesque cliffs and fjords, colorful flower fields and... ice. In 1975, this area was protected as a Nature Reserve.


Dynjandi Waterfall, Latrabjarg Cliffs, Raudisandur Beach

Dynjandi is a quite high waterfall (100 m) in the western part of the cape, often called the jewel of this region. It is certainly one of the greatest attractions of the peninsula, and many travelers even consider it the most beautiful waterfall in all of Iceland. Considering the extremely tough competition, this is certainly a strong argument to see the waterfall with your own eyes. Beautiful Dynjandi is located on road 60. It is approximately 35 km and 45 minutes drive north from the Brjanslaekur ferry port. The parking lot is located approximately 500 m (15 minutes) from the foot of the waterfall.

Látrabjarg is a 400-meter-high cliff with a length of 14 km. It is the westernmost point in Iceland and the best place on the island to observe beautiful puffins. Látrabjarg is one of the largest bird communities in Iceland. Nesting in the steep cliffs are, among others, beautiful puffins, characteristic of Iceland, Arctic guillemots and fulmars. Interestingly, due to the large number of tourists, they are used to the presence of people and are not afraid of us. Even though puffins often come very close, do not touch them and do not use the flash when taking photos!

Raudisandur (Rauðisandur, also Rauðasandur) is a beautiful beach with red and golden sand, unusual for Iceland. It is located in the southern part of the peninsula, near Látrabjarg. Raudasandur is famous not only for its golden sand, but also for its excellent conditions for observing seals. Representatives of the two most popular species can often be seen swinging in the water or basking in the sand. Whales also often appear in these areas.

DAY 9/10


Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland, with an urban population of approximately 233,000 (2019), it is home to two-thirds of Iceland's population. It is the center of culture and life of Icelanders and one of the main tourist attractions in Iceland. The city is vast and has extensive suburbs. However, the city center is a very small area, characterized by eclectic and colorful houses, with good shops, restaurants and drinks. Reykjavik has the distinction of being the northernmost capital in the world, although its winters are surprisingly mild for a city of its latitude.
