At the start of the day, you will be picked up by one of our modified super jeeps. You will head east out of the city, along the south coast of Iceland, en route to the beautiful Valley of Thor.
On this tour, you will stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is a 60m high waterfall that seems to fall off the cliff as if by magic!
To drive to your next stop, Gigjokull glacier, you will put the super jeep to the test as you splash in rivers and streams. Now you will see why the big Jeep is needed for this tour! Gigjokull is a glacier tongue stretching from the infamous glacier Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano which erupted in 2010 wreaking havoc all over Europe.
Further inland, you will witness more of the amazing glacial vistas, as Thorsmork is surrounded by glaciers on three sides. Once we are deep into the Thorsmork valley, you have the opportunity to take nice hikes around the area and really drink in the beautiful unspoiled nature of Iceland.

How many days are enough for Europe?
You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent.
Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.
What is the best month to visit Iceland?
Given that summer temperatures do not rise much above 16°C, the best time to visit Iceland is between the months of May and September. Gullfoss Waterfall is also at its most impressive at this time of year, and the midnight sun is visible in the country’s north. Travel outside of the summer season and you may find the country’s museums and hiking routes, such as the Laugavegur Trail, closed. However, the period between November to February does have the bonus of being the season of the Northern Lights, and major attractions such as the Blue Lagoon remain open all year round.

Is it expensive to travel to Iceland? How does credit card system work?
Iceland is one of the most expensive countries in the world to visit, although there are ways to keep costs down, such as by renting a camper van. Overall, visitors should be looking at a daily per-person budget of between USD 100 and USD 200. Most hotels, restaurants, and shops accept credit cards from major providers, and there are no minimum purchase requirements. Since cards are the preferred method of payment, you should be okay even if you avoid carrying cash completely, although having some for emergencies is always a good idea.

Is a visa required when traveling to Iceland? Is Iceland a safe location to visit?
Passport holders from around 60 nations, including the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, do not require a visa to enter Iceland as a tourist. Stays are limited to a maximum of 89 days in any six-month period. If you are coming from or going to another Schengen country, this time must also be included in your allowance. Iceland is incredibly safe with very low crime rates. A bigger concern is ensuring that you pack correctly for a climate that can swing from sunny skies to snow showers in a couple of hours.
