Here’s a new twist on modern travel.

A few longer stops are included along the way to let you experience Unique Iceland - such as bathing in a hot spring and a boat ride amongst icebergs. With decent tourist class hotels for overnights. A 16 seat Mercedes minbus means a small group and comfortable travel. Free Wi-Fi to let you upload selfies to all.

Note - The small print is the big print:

Note that the total mileage is 1.700 km / 1.054 miles, which makes this tour suitable for travellers who like to see as much as possible in the shortest possible time and don’t mind travelling long hours by minibus. It is a Thunderbolt Sprinter, named after Thor, the God of Thunder and Usain Bolt, the best sprinter in the world. That’s about as fast as we go, making the Iceland Selfie Marathon the fastest guided bus tour around Iceland – in the speed of Thor’s Thunderbolt. You visit over 20 must-see locations; often quick photo stops at each location with a couple of walks and hikes here and there. There is free Wi-Fi on board. If you prefer a more leisurely schedule we recommend our 8-12 day tours around Iceland; www.gjtravel.is
