5 Days Golden circle, Snæfellsnes and Glacier lagoon
In our five-day tours we stay out in the country side and have the opportunity to visit more beautiful sights because we don't spend time driving to Reykjavik after each day. We carefully pick the accommodations, where there is good food and atmosphere. The accommodation, breakfast and two course gourmet dinner is included four evenings. For Northern Lights hunters staying in the country side away from the light pollution, we often have a good opportunity to see them. When you select the date in the calendar the price will show up below. For people traveling with kids please contact us prior your booking.
