Reykjavik - Pink Snaefellsnes Peninsula
The landscape of the Snaefellsnes peninsula, with its contrasts and diversity, is something you'll want to experience. We'll drive through the quaint fishing villages of the northern shore where you'll see one of Iceland’s most picturesque mountains, Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall. We'll then enter the Snaefellsjokull National Park, named after the Snaefellsjokull stratovolcano which towers over the area. The 700,000 year old volcano, now covered by a glacier bearing the same name, is where Jules Verne found the entrance to the center of the earth. Maybe your journey will be just as eventful...
The park is covered by the fields of lava that have flowed down the slopes of the volcano creating a truly unique landscape of moss covered lava fields, black pebble beaches, towering coastline cliffs and other wonders.
Said to be one of the seven great energy centres of the earth, the glacier has been attributed various mysterious powers.

Reykjavik - Pink West Iceland Safari
Glacier carved landscape and ancient curvy rivers, Iceland;s largest lava cave and the worlds' most powerful hot spring - These are just few of our favorite things on Pink Iceland West Safari. On our journey West we will drive through the tranquil Whale fjord "bay" - which is rarely visited these days. The name gift of Whale fjord bay is uncertain but most believe the name derives from an old legend of Raudhofdl the infamous Red Headed Whale whose Reign of terror ended with his heart exploding on top of Whale Mountain. But like so many of our folktales it all started with a furious elf.
In this tour you choose between visiting the underworld of Vidgelmir cave or the newly built Krauma geothermal baths.
Vidgelmir Cave: The stunning beauty of Vidgelmir lava cave lies in the amazing colors and rock formations that used to hide in the dark. But not any more! This impressive cave can now be enjoyed with all that it has to offer.

Reykjavik - Pink Golden Circle Day Tour
Your Golden Circle journey will begin or end by treading in the footsteps of the Vikings at Thingvellir National park. You'll walk through the gorges, that are being torn apart as the tectonic plates rip away from each other and if you listen closely, you just might hear the echos of the vikings deliberating at this UNESCO world heritage site of the first parliament in the world.
The renowned Geysir geothermal area is not to be missed as you'll walk the path through boiling ground, but be on your guard as the geyser Strokkur will erupt when you least expect it. Be careful, this place is hot hot hot!
The majestic waterfall Gullfoss is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. It was so cherished by the locals in the countryside that the local woman Sigridur Tomasdottir often walked all the way to Reykjavik to try and prevent it from being harnessed for electricity. This was in the early 20th century, before they had built roads in the area.
Reykjavik - Pink South Shore Adventure
The South Shore Safari will take you through the breadbasket of Iceland on your way to the gems of the south.
You'll see the villages and farms of the southern flat lands before we arrive at the mountain ranges.
In clear weather you can see volcanos and glaciers that have erupted 9 times in the last 50 years, the latest of which was the infamous Eyjafjallajokull eruption of 2010 that stranded millions of travelers all around the world.
Reynisfjara beach, with its basalt column cliffs, is a particular favorite of the south. The crashing waves of the open Atlantic break on the black sandy beach of Reynisfjara which is quite picturesque with its mountainous backdrop. Rememeber to be extra careful at this powerful beach as the waves are unpredictable and powerful.
We'll visit the hidden waterfall Gljufrabul, the waterfall you can walk behind Seljalandsfoss and the magnificent Skogafoss. These are amongst the numerous characterful waterfalls that we will see from the road on our drive along the old sea cliffs and if it's very windy you’ll even see a few of them flow upward.
