Southwest & Golden Circle

Why Visit

Huge views with grumbling volcanoes, a joy for hikers and mountain bikers alike, this region, which includes the capital Reykjavik is easily accessible for a short break where the visitor can witness some of Iceland’s most iconic natural wonders.

About the Southwest & Golden Circle

Travel as far as you can, away from the easily reached sites just outside Reykjavik where a more undiscovered region awaits. Travel by 4x4 to reach the geysers and the sandy coloured peaks at Landmannalaugar.

  • Sooth your post trekking bones at the Blue Lagoon, an easy, if a little touristy spot outside Reykkajavik
  • Hold your breath waiting for the sky reaching Geysir or the nearby more reliable Strokkur
  • Sail to Vestmannaeyjar in search of puffins and visit the lava flow towns
  • Trek the 23km at Fimmvorouhals in the spring or summer and the reward will be blankets of wild Arctic flowers at the end of the trek
  • Treat yourself to a traditional Icelandic woollen sweater at Mosfellsbaer

Beyond the Ordinary

Camp amongst the towering glaciers, hidden valleys and flower filled dells at Porsmork – 130kms from Reykjavik.
