Taking a day trip from the capital city Reykjavik is the best way to explore Iceland’s enthralling natural wonders. You visit a tourist spot, stay there for an hour or two, and return to your hotel at Reykjavik on the same day, is a typical trip. Obtaining a detailed map of the country is essential. Circumnavigating the island nation at a relaxing space will take nearly 2 weeks. It is better to prioritize the places you desire to visit, and smartly cover the sightseeing agendas selectively, through well-tailored day trip by top-rate travel companies.
Marveling at Basalt Columns
Visiting the famous Reynisfjara Beach from Reykjavik is easy, and convenient for your budget. You simply need to take one of the Iceland Super Jeep Tours from an emerging travel agency and reach the spot without hassles. The USP of the beach is a rich cover of black pebbles, incessantly washed by cool Atlantic waters. Locally, it is known as the black beach. A little exploration will take you to a mystic cave. You will find fascinating Basalt Columns here, in delicate hexagonal patterns, apparently countless, formed naturally from the cooling of lava.
Strolling around Seljalandsfoss
By being a part of Super Jeep Tours in Iceland, you can quickly reach the intensely scenic Seljalandsfoss, not very far from the Reykjavik outskirts. It is an incredibly beautiful waterfall that majestically drops from a height of about 60 meters. The surrounding area is artistically covered by lush greenery dotted with blooming flowers and chirping birds, painted by Mother Nature, during spring and summer months. There are also minor hiking trails in and around the place. Few public buses consider this as a stoppage, but it is wiser to rent a Super Jeep and drive from Reykjavik without wasting time and reach more comfortably. There is a picturesque café nearby, serving delicious hot chocolate.
Immersing in Blue Lagoon
A day trip is incomplete without a visit to the exquisite Blue Lagoon. The lagoon waters, rich in minerals, is said to be therapeutic. It remains fairly hot even during winter months. Taking a bath in Blue Lagoon in a snowy terrain is an unforgettable experience. It is a delicately crafted man-made lagoon where the temperature of waters varies between 98 and 102 degrees. Keep in mind that it is an expensive outing, with the touristy crowd.
Touring Golden Circle
If you want to enjoy multiple sites in a single day trip, it is mandatory to visit the Golden Circle, regarded undisputed as one of the best tourist-interest spots, globally. From witnessing bejeweled sprouting water from well-known geothermal Geysir area to getting thoroughly captivated by the unlimited charm of Gullfoss waterfall, you will be instantly mesmerized with the natural beauty of every element of Golden Circle. You also get a scope to visit ‘Thingvellir National Park’, a heritage site declared by UNESCO.
