Rannveig

I constantly consider myself lucky to be Icelandic and live in this incredible destination that Iceland is. Our culture, the Northern Lights, erupting volcanoes and incredible nature provide some of the best holiday experiences you can get. I have spent the last 15 years truly exploring my own country and it continues to amaze me every single day. The weather may be a challenge - we never know what what conditions will be thrown our way - but you can rest assured that every minute is an adventure! Respect for nature is important to all Icelanders and all the partners we work with care for people and for the environment. We are a family business committed to offering our customers the best, true, authentic experiences and nowhere else will you get a more personal service than with us.

Golden Circle

On this classic tour we‘ll join a small group and guide to drive The Golden Circle and take in all its awe and beauty! We‘ll visit Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss the queen of all Icelandic waterfalls.We’ll walk the beautiful Þingvellir National Park and UNESCO Heritage site. The scenery is amazing no matter the weather! We’ll get a close look at how the tectonic plates drifted apart and where the first settlers of Iceland founded the world ́s oldest parliament Althingi (Alþingi) in the year 930. We then continue to the area with the famous Geysir which all other geysers are named after. Here we’ll see the lively Strokkur erupt roughly every 5-10 minutes and reach a height up to 25 meters along with observing the other geothermal features of the area. From there we’ll head up to Gullfoss waterfall, which Icelander ́s call the Queen of Waterfalls!

Free Day to Enjoy at Hotel Ranga

Enjoy a day to yourself.

Take a hike around the stunning landscape, soak in a hot tub, enjoy the awesome views and delicious local food, relax in the lounge and the games room or just do nothing and chill out in your gorgeous hotel.

South Coast and Ice Cave

You will be picked up at your hotel. In Vík we meet up with your Katlatrack Ice Cave Guide and our adventure begins! We’ll climb into a super jeep and take an exhilarating ride through the private back road of Vik to reach the glacier area. Visitors should never risk exploring an ice cave without a highly experienced guide, so after fitting you up with some of our equipment (a helmet, headlamp and crampons for your shoes), we’ll provide a full safety brief before making our way to the cave. After a short (10-15 minute) walk across the glacier, we’re ready to enter our ice cave! An unforgettable experience ! On our way back to your hotel we visit Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls.
