Last but not least, we will stop by the Black Sand Beach, where you can feel the raw and untamed power of the North Atlantic, as it washes across a black sand beach. This attraction is a favourite among tourist, since the scene in almost alien and unearthly in nature.
The South Coast Private Tour is one of our most popular tours and for a good reason. This is a superb day tour where you will get a chance to see soaring volcanoes, incredible glaciers, beautiful waterfalls and serene nature.
The alien landscape of Reykjanes Peninsula
The Blue Lagoon is by far the most popular attraction in Iceland, but there are other, just as interesting, natural attraction in the Reykjanes Peninsula, where you can find the lagoon. The peninsula is characterized by many lava fields and a range of mountains, which hold many wondrous and interesting craters.
On the Reykjanes peninsula tour we will pay a visit to geothermal hot spring areas, see where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are drifting apart at the Bridge between Continents and explore a real lava cave. Of course, bathing in the Blue Lagoon can be added on request and that is something that we fully recommend.

Last but not least is the Golden Circle. There’s a reason why this route is the most popular tourist route in Iceland. You will see some great natural attractions, ranging from pristine lakes, soaring volcanoes to sprouting geysers and powerful waterfalls. The Super Golden Circle private tour is immensely popular and well worth it.
