Itinerary

Day 1

Highlights:

Capital Reykjavík
Blue Lagoon

Summary:

Accommodation: Reykjavík

Optional Activities: Sky Lagoon, Whale Watching, Puffin Watching, FlyOver Iceland

Colorful houses in downtown Reykjavik

Once you safely touchdown on the tarmac at Keflavík International Airport, you will likely already have seen the lava fields of the Reykjanes peninsula. Iceland is one of the most geologically fascinating countries on earth. You will receive a warm welcome from your driver, who will be waiting for you in Arrivals. Depending on your arrival time and mood, you can stop at the Blue Lagoon on your way to town for some relaxing downtime in milky blue geothermal waters.

 

From here, you will board the bus, and it is a short 40-minute journey through those lava fields to get to your downtown Reykjavík hotel and you will be able to check in before explore the city by yourself. Reykjavík is full of things to do, from museums, amazing restaurants, and trendy bars to local landmarks that are iconic of this lively little town.

After breakfast at the hotel, it is time for your first adventure to the most popular day tour in Iceland, none other than the Golden Circle. The Golden Circle comprises three specific locations, all unique, but also iconic landmarks. The first is one of Iceland’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, Þingvellir National Park. You will learn all about the special significance of this area.

 

From one geothermal location to another, next is the world-famous site of Geysir.  This natural wonder shoots boiling, sulfur-rich water high into the air, usually every 5-8 minutes or so. Your last stop today is the majestic waterfall of Gullfoss. A protected nature area, much beloved, you will see why this is arguably the most famous waterfall in the country.

 

Your hotel for the evening will be in the Icelandic countryside, where you can relax and simply enjoy your rural, summer surroundings.

Day 3

Seljalandsfoss & Skógafoss Waterfalls
Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach
Vík Village

Summary:

Accommodation: Vatnajökull

Day 3 will take you along Iceland's southern coast, and its two waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Both waterfalls are very famous and iconic, having been featured in multiple movies and TV shows.  Seljalandsfoss has a cave behind it, and we recommend taking the opportunity to venture into it. Skógafoss is a dramatic and powerful cascade, and a protected monument of Iceland because of the birds that nest here. The South Coast is also where you can catch a glimpse of a very famous volcano: Eyjafjallajökull halted air traffic around the world, and the South Coast is where you can see it. Also, close by, you will be able to see the glacier of Sólheimajökull.

 

The South is also home to volcanic, black beaches that stretch for miles and miles. Created by the gradual erosion of lava by the currents of the Atlantic Ocean, these unique beaches are another iconic location, and no more so than at Reynisfjara, with tall, hexagonal, basalt columns and the sea stacks that adorn this unique and impressive spot.

 

Your accommodation will be another country hotel, where it will be time to chill out and decompress from another day’s adventure.

Day 4

Highlights:

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
Diamond Beach
Kirkjubæjarklaustur

Summary:

Accommodation: Reykjavík

Today, you will continue your journey along the coastline towards Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland’s second UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home of Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. This is where you will find the glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón, where large icebergs break from the glacier and slowly make their way across the lagoon and out to sea. It is incredible to sit and watch the icebergs make this journey, whilst occasionally spotting the seals who enjoy visiting this area to bask in the summer sun. You will take a boat tour to see the glacier from up close, or simply enjoy it from the shoreline.

 

Close to Jökulsárlón, there is a beach like no other. As the icebergs reach the open ocean, the currents break them down even further, and they eventually lie scattered across the black sand, sparkling in the sun like diamonds. It is little wonder why they call this area Diamond Beach! You will then head back to your hotel.

The Snæfellsnes peninsula is somewhat of a less frequently visited location but is one of the most incredible areas in the country. It has been referred to as “Iceland in Miniature” because it features almost all of the things that make Iceland so special in one location.

 

The road will take you around the volcano of Snæfellsjökull, visiting the cliffs of Arnarstapi, the black beach of Djúpalónssandur, the mountain of Kirkjufell, and the beautiful Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall.

Time to head home, but not before taking a last coffee, one last stroll, a few final snaps. The world-famous Blue Lagoon is very close to the airport, so you will use your last day for a visit before you head home (if you haven’t already on day 1). Whatever you end up doing, you will have had the time of your life and no doubt dreaming about coming back!
