Some tourist attractions in Iceland are simply must-sees. Although the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle tour might seem to some a cliché, going to Iceland without seeing those places is like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower; to Athens without seeing the Acropolis or to Pisa without catching a glimpse of the Leaning Tower.
The question therefore, is not if you should tour the Golden Circle; the question is whether to combine your visit with the Blue Lagoon, whale watching, horseback riding, sightseeing in Reykjavík, diving, snorkelling or visiting historical places. You even have a choice of going by night, in the afternoon or even by super jeep. Iceland Excursions – Gray Line Iceland offers you all of these options and many more. The choice is yours!The Platinum Circle Tour
One example of such a mix is the Platinum Circle Tour which gets you in close contact with one of Iceland’s glaciers, shows you some of the history of the island in addition to the Golden Circle in the beautiful evening sun. The Platinum Circle Tour visits a great number of interesting locations, starting along the shores of Hvalfjörður (Whale fjord) west of Reykjavik. You will see attractions such as the inspiring Settlement Centre in Borgarnes, the geothermal area of Deildartunguhver and the magnificent Langjökull glacier.
If you are feeling adventurous, a snorkel or a dive in Silfra or cave exploring might be your way of experiencing Iceland. The trip, ‘Iceland From Below’ takes you to Iceland’s most spectacular lava tube caves and craters. There you will enter through the cave entrance in a lava field and find it reveals extraordinary scenery of colours and lava formations. The crystal-clear Silfra fissure is one of the clearest diving spots in the world, resulting in extremely good visibility, even while snorkelling.
The various South Coast tours are also exciting options, especially now, right after the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull glacier. The South coast boasts of beautiful waterfalls as well as magnificent black beaches. If you are up for a longer day of sightseeing, going all the way to Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon is recommended, seeing the waterfalls on the way as well as one of the most beautiful spots in Iceland, Skaftafell National Park.
