Private Kjölur Coast 2 Coast Highland Route

From Reykjavík Cross Country to North Iceland

Private Kjölur Coast 2 Coast Highland Route is a tour for those who want to experience something truly unique. Your private guide takes all the time you need to experience the Golden Circle, the Icelandic Highland and the Arctic Coastline of North Iceland.

The Kjölur Route runs across the uninhabited highland, between Glaciers Hofsjökull and Langjökull, and connects South Iceland and North Iceland. After short stops visits at popular attractions of the Golden Circle we set our course to the scenic highland. We visit iconic landmarks, such as the geothermal area at Hveravellir Oasis where we bathe in natural geothermal (remember to bring swimsuit and towel).  On arrival to North Iceland we go through Skagafjörður Fjord before arriving to Akureyri Town in time for dinner.

You can either stay in North Iceland for further adventures or fly back to Reykjavík in the evening, just add-on the return flight when you make you booking.
