All about the Winter Weekend in Iceland , 2 Days, Golden Circle.

Winter Weekend in Iceland

The winter time sets the scene for amazing adventures if you have the right vehicle. On this 2-day getaway, our experienced driver-guides use their modified 4×4 Super Jeep vehicles to take you off the beaten path. You’ll drive past snow-covered volcanoes, mountains, hills and craters into the ruggedly beautiful South Highlands of Iceland. You’ll witness the steamy geothermal area of Landmannalaugar, the third largest geothermal area in the world, and the famous Golden Circle on the way back to town.

You’ll marvel at the beauty of the Northern Lights* dancing across the starry sky, soak in a natural hot spring and see breathtaking half-frozen waterfalls.

This will certainly be a winter weekend adventure to remember.

*The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore sightings cannot be guaranteed.

 

Itinerary

Day 1 – Reykjavík – Hekla – Landmannalaugar

Your highlands adventure begins when we pick you up at your hotel in Reykjavík around 9:00. From Reykjavík, we pass over the mountain range of Hellisheiði and traverse the wide plains of southern Iceland. At the foot of the Mt. Hekla volcano (last eruption in 2000), we climb the road up to the Sigalda Hills. After traversing mysterious lava fields, craters, and vast fields in their white winter coats, we finally arrive in Landmannalaugar. In the afternoon we put on our snowshoes, if needed, and go for a hike in this rough and breathtakingly beautiful region. At the end of a perfect day outdoors, you can enjoy a warm bath in the hot springs river or assist the guide in preparing a delicious barbecue dinner.
