Day 2 REYKJANES PENINSULA - BLUE LAGOON (B) Approximate distance: 158 km / 98 miles
Head to the Reykjanes peninsula, where geothermal heat and lava fields dominate the nature. Stop at the world famous Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa, where you can enjoy a relaxing swim in its naturally heated waters.
From the Blue Lagoon you can continue your drive towards the Golden Circle area crossing the small village of Hveragerdi, famous for its green-house cultivations.

Highlights: The Blue Lagoon | Reykjanes | Hveragerdi
Day 3 THE GOLDEN CIRCLE (B) Approximate distance: 200 km / 124 miles
After breakfast at Grimsborgir, you can explore the famous Golden Circle route, before heading back to Reykjavik in the afternoon. For a Classic Golden Circle tour you should visit Thingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Gullfoss waterfall and the famous Geysir Geothermal area where hot springs and geysers are in abundance.
The Icelandic parliament was established at Thingvellir in the year 930, making it the site where the oldest existing parliament in the world was formed. As well as being a historic place in Iceland, it is also a natural wonder because of its location directly on top of a tectonic rift. Here you can see clearly how the continental plates of America and Europe have drifted apart. Huge canyons are the most clear manifestation of that, one of which ("Peningagja canyon") is believed to be a wishing well.
From Thingvellir continue to the geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring and Gullfoss waterfall (Golden Falls). These attractions are two of the most popular in Iceland - and for a reason! Everybody is blown away by the natural power that is evident in the spouting geysers and huge waterfalls. After this day of classic sightseeing you will drive back to Reykjavik to check in at your hotel.
Highlights: Gullfoss | Thingvellir | Geysir | Geysir Center
Day 4 DEPARTURE REYKJAVIK (B) Depending on your departure time, how you use your last day in Iceland is entirely up to you. If you liked the Blue Lagoon, it's very convenient to stop by again on the way to the airport, as it's only a 15 minute drive away*
