2 Days Golden Circle & Snæfellsnes Peninsula
In our two-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 in the evening. We carefully pick the accommodation, where there is good food and atmosphere. The accommodation, breakfast and three course gourmet dinner is included the first evening. For Northern Lights hunters staying in the country side away from the light pollution, we often have a good opportunity to see them.
Free pick up and drop off anywhere in the vicinity of Reykjavik city.
