The South of Iceland is unique and everything that makes Iceland interesting to visit is accessible all year around. Here, history follows you at every footstep, both ancient and recent. There is creative art, culture and flourishing trade and endless possibilities to enjoy the outdoor life during all seasons. Above all there is the awesome and rugged nature from the mountains to the sea.
Regardless of the season you will find something to your liking. During the winter the sun is reflected from the pearly white snow, the northern lights dance around the starlit sky on long dark winter nights and the moon plays hide and seek with the clouds. Beauty, peace and quiet reigns supreme, unforgettable to those who experience it. Trips across the highlands as well as the lowlands are awesome adventures during both summer and winter.
Pink Iceland's self drive of the beautiful South combines nature, great adventures and beautiful views. You can choose from 3 or 4 night packages (or we can tailor make something for you) to help you make the most of your trip to the South. You can choose between standard and luxury packages depending on type of vehicle and accommodation. Choose from many of the adventurous tours offered in the South of Iceland and enjoy great hikes and spend time in the great outdoors.

Driving the ring road around Iceland is an unforgettable experience and Pink Iceland can put together a tailor made self drive package for you based on your wishes, budget and duration of your stay in Iceland. Going around Iceland on the ring road takes at least 6-7 days, excluding the Westfjords. You could do it in fewer days but we would not recommend it.
Pink Iceland can book accommodations all around the country, along with activities and tours making sure that you will make the most out of your stay.

Westfjords of Iceland
Geothermal Pools - Fishing Villages - Birdlife - Mountains Waterfalls - Cliffs - Culture - Food - History
The Westfjords region has sometimes been dubbed “the most famous unknown place in Iceland”. Well, throw in the prestigious “European Destination of Excellence” awards and add to that the fact that the Lonely Planet travel guide put the area on its top 10 list of regions in the world to visit in 2011, and you will see that the Westfjords are becoming increasingly famous – or perhaps less unknown.
The Westfjords region is untouched and almost uninhabited. The cliffs and valleys are packed with birds, the uninhabited fjords offer a moment of silence and tranquility, and the Arctic fox proudly roams the mountains and inlets. The waterfalls are high and the streams pure. The distances are long and the fjords are deep. And then there are places where there are no roads at all. Visiting the Westfjords is surely a different experience. It is Iceland, but yet a different Iceland altogether.
