Iceland Explorer: Drive & Hike

  • Explore the South Coast, East Fjords and Lake Myvatn by car and on foot
  • Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon, filled with huge icebergs of turquoise hues
  • The thundering waterfalls of Gulfoss, Skogafoss and Dettifoss
  • The colourful fishing villages of the East Fjords
  • Myvatn, scattered with bubbling mud-pots, lava formations and hot springs
Drive Iceland’s scenic Ring Road 1, starting from the capital of Reykjavik, exploring the picturesque south coast and through the east fjords to Lake Myvatn on the north coast. This drive and hike tour ticks off countless highlights; lava fields, volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls, fjords, hot springs and geysirs. You’ll want to get out from behind the wheel and experience Iceland on foot; wander alongside an iceberg lagoon, look down on thundering waterfalls from above, and hike through great tears in the earth’s crust. This is Iceland at its best!
