Day 1

Day 1 – Reykjavík

  • Reykjavík - Arrival day
  • More

You'll land at Keflavik International Airport, located in the moonlike landscape of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Once you've gathered your bags, hop on your bus, which will take you to Iceland's capital city, Reykjavik.

On your way, you could stop at the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. This world-renowned spa is known for its healing waters, vivid azure colors, and luxurious treatments. It's in the middle of a moss-covered lava field, giving it an otherworldly atmosphere.

If you add the Blue Lagoon, it will be arranged according to your flights. If there's no time to visit the lagoon today, it can be added to another day. Your travel consultant can arrange this for you.

You'll then travel across dramatic lava fields until you reach your accommodation in the city. After settling in, you can head out and explore the city. The midnight sun will illuminate the evening sky well into the night.

Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital, is a delightful blend of modernity and rich history. Begin your exploration with a visit to the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church. Its towering spire not only dominates the city's skyline but also offers panoramic views from its observation deck.

Nearby, the Sun Voyager sculpture, resembling a Viking longship, stands majestically by the sea, symbolizing hope and freedom. A short walk will lead you to the Harpa Concert Hall, a marvel of modern architecture, with its mesmerizing glass facade shimmering reflections of the sea and the vibrant city.

The heart of Reykjavik pulsates with life in its bustling streets like Laugavegur and Skolavordustigur, where one can indulge in local shopping, taste Icelandic delicacies, or simply soak in the city's atmosphere.

You could have a drink at one of the city's many cafes and bars and enjoy a little Reykjavik nightlife. Not too much, though, as you'll want to save some energy for the coming days.

Day 2

Day 2 – Southwest Iceland

  • Southwest Iceland
  • More
  • Thingvellir National Park
  • Geysir geothermal area
  • Gullfoss waterfall
  • More

Your minibus tour around the island starts with your guide picking you up in the morning. After some friendly introductions, you'll begin your sightseeing route for the day, the Golden Circle.

Your first stop will be Thingvellir National Park, an area characterized by the rugged gorge that runs through it. On one side of the canyon is the exposed Eurasian tectonic plate, and on the other side, the North American plate. Iceland is the only place on earth where it's possible to walk in the middle of a continental divide in this way.

Thingvellir is also culturally significant as it was here that the Viking settlers gathered in the year 1000 AD to lay the laws of the land. Furthermore, this historic site served as the location for the world's first parliament, the Althingi, making it a focal point of Icelandic cultural identity. The park's landscape, punctuated by crystal-clear streams, moss-covered lava rocks, and birch woodlands, provides a picturesque backdrop to its rich history.

Moving on, you'll visit the Geysir geothermal area, named after the famous hot spring for which all geysers are consequently called. Watch in amazement as boiling-hot water erupts from the Strokkur geyser, reaching heights of up to 66 feet (20 meters).

This ever-active region is punctuated with bubbling mud pools and steaming fumaroles. The contrasting colors of the mineral-rich soil and rising steam create an almost otherworldly atmosphere that genuinely showcases the raw power of Iceland's geothermal activity.

Once you've fully appreciated this phenomenon, you'll move on to see the majestic Gullfoss waterfall. The Hvita river is made up of pure glacial water, and at Gullfoss, it cascades down two mighty tiers with great force. Viewing this natural feature from several angles is possible, offering several opportunities to get the best photo.

You will retire to accommodation in the Southwest Iceland rea.

Day 3

Day 3 – South Coast

  • South Coast
  • More
  • Seljalandsfoss Waterfall
  • Skogafoss waterfall
  • Dyrholaey
  • Reynisfjara black sand beach
  • Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks
  • More

Today, it's time to travel to the South Coast, a region characterized by its vast black beaches and stunning waterfalls. If the weather is good, keep an eye out to sea, and you may be able to spot the outline of the Westman Islands just off the coast.

Your first stop will be Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which you can see from the road as you approach the cliffs of the Southern Highlands. However, nothing can prepare you for this site up close. Water cascades from 197 feet (60 meters) in front of a large cavern that you can enter to see the waterfall from all angles.

Not far is your second waterfall of the day, Skogafoss. Like Seljalandsfoss, this mighty waterfall falls an impressive 197 feet (60 meters) in a wide curtain of thundering water. The ground around it is very flat, allowing visitors to get quite close. On sunny days, it's possible to see several rainbows in the spray of the falls.

You could also choose to visit an ice cave today. Ice caves are an incredible natural wonder that will transport you into an almost crystal palace of icy walls marbled in white and blue.

You will also visit the Dyrholaey sea arch, a rocky promenade stretching from the South Coast's mainland into the sea. From here, you'll get a great few of the surrounding landscape. This spot is also a haven for birdwatchers, with many species, including puffins, often seen nesting on the cliff faces during certain times of the year.

Continuing your journey along the South Coast, you'll move onto Reynisfjara's black sand beach. This stretch of idyllic coastline is famed for its mesmerizing sand, spectacular basalt columns, and photogenic sea stacks, Reynisdrangar. Keep your eyes on the beach's impressive birdlife. You might spot a puffin or two.

Finally, you'll head to your accommodation in South Iceland.

Day 4

Day 4 – Southeast Iceland

  • Southeast Iceland
  • More
  • Skaftafell Nature Reserve
  • Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
  • Diamond Beach
  • More

Your day will begin with a drive across the sands of Solheimasandur, a vast black desert that stretches up to the edges of the grand Vatnajokull National Park. Marvel at the contrasting landscapes as each new horizon comes into view.

The first stop of the day is guaranteed to leave you spellbound. The Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is often called the "Crown Jewel of Iceland" and is a sight to behold. It is Iceland's deepest lake, with a maximum depth of 814 feet (248 meters). It also has a surface area of 11.2 square miles (18 square kilometers).

Huge icebergs drift in the crystalline waters, breaking off from the Breidamerkurjokull glacier tongue and floating lazily out to sea.

Here, you have a chance to sail among the ice on a fantastic boat tour in a specialized amphibian vehicle that drives into the lake and cruises among the bergs, allowing you to take in the unique structure of each as they creak and groan under their weight.

Once you've fully taken in the majesty of Jokulsarlon, you'll make your way to Diamond Beach, a magnificent stretch of coast where the icebergs wash ashore. You can walk among the ancient glacier ice and take many picture-perfect photos here.

The shining pieces of ice on the dark sand look like sparkling diamonds, which is how the beach got its name. The sound of waves hitting the ice is remarkable and adds to the beauty of the place.

Today, you'll also take in the Skaftafell nature reserve, a beautiful part of the country within Vatnajokull National Park. From here, you'll go on a glacier hike. You'll be fitted with the necessary gear and taken up on the icy slopes to see the incredible views from atop a glacier.

You'll spend your evening in accommodation in Southeast Iceland. Make the most of the midnight sun. Sit outside or go for a walk to take in your beautiful surroundings.

Day 5

Day 5 – Eastfjords

  • Eastfjords
  • More
  • Hallormsstadaskogur Forest
  • Lake Lagarfljot
  • More

Today, you'll explore the remote and wild Eastfjords. This sparsely populated mountainous area is characterized by small fishing villages and winding rocky roads. Depending on the feelings of the group, your guide will share with you some local gems in the area.

Much of the Eastfjord's geology is unique, so pay attention to the rock formations and multi-colored pebbles that adorn the ground. You'll have the opportunity to get the quintessential small-town experience by stopping at some of the quaint harbor towns dotted along the coast.

There will also be a stop at Lake Lagarfljot, a large and beautiful body of water rumored to be inhabited by an ancient sea monster. This beast is called the Lagarfljot Wyrm, and its legend outdates the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland. 

Many locals and visitors claim to have seen strange movements in the water, adding to the lake's mysterious allure. Whether you're a believer or a skeptic, the lake's captivating stories and serene beauty make it a must-visit.

You'll also see Iceland's largest forest, Hallormsstadaskogur, a welcome delight after traveling through the typically treeless Icelandic landscape. Nestled by Lake Lagarfljot, the forest offers scenic hiking trails, picnic spots, and an opportunity to spot local wildlife. The dense greenery contrasting with the rugged Icelandic backdrop creates a unique and refreshing ambiance.

If you want some added adventure to your day, you can choose to go on a horse riding tour. The Icelandic horse is well-known for its lovely temperament and sturdy build, perfect for riders of all ages. You'll be able to take in the Icelandic countryside in this experience in a whole new way.

You'll then end the day in Egilsstadir, the largest town in the East and often the sunniest place in Iceland.

You'll spend the evening in accommodation in East Iceland.

Day 6

Day 6 – Akureyri

  • Akureyri
  • More
  • Dettifoss waterfall
  • Asbyrgi canyon
  • Lake Myvatn Area
  • Godafoss Waterfall
  • More

After leaving the Eastfjords, your trip will take you to some of the attractions that make up the Diamond Circle route, the cousin of the Golden Circle in the southwest.

Before departure, however, you can enjoy the Vok Baths, a spa immersed in a lake, if you elect to do so when booking.

The Diamond Circle comprises four main attractions - Dettifoss waterfall, Asbyrgi canyon, Husavik town, and Lake Myvatn.

First, you'll feast your eyes on "The Beast," the nickname bestowed upon the huge waterfall Dettifoss, considered the most powerful in Europe. This colossal natural feature is somewhat of a celebrity as it was featured in Ridley Scott's sci-fi movie, “Prometheus.” After a short walk to the falls, you can take in its tremendous might as it sends massive amounts of water over a 144-foot (44-meter) drop.

Next, you'll visit Asbyrgi, a horseshoe-shaped canyon which, according to legend, was formed by Odin's eight-legged horse, Slepinir, as he stomped down on the earth. Once you've taken in the verdant landscapes at Asbyrgi, you'll stop in the pretty town of Husavik, famed for its beautiful harbor and an ornate wooden church.

Next, you'll move on to Lake Myvatn, a stunning body of water surrounded by a wealth of fascinating natural features. It measures around six miles (9.5 kilometers) long and four miles (6.5 kilometers) wide, making it Iceland’s fourth-largest lake.

You'll explore the Namaskard Pass, a geothermal area where the earth's powers rise to the surface as steam spews from fumaroles or boiling mud pits.

You'll then head towards the Northern Iceland town of Akureyri. Along the way, you'll stop at “That Waterfall of the Gods,” Godafoss. It's believed this was where a Viking Chieftain symbolically threw his pagan totems into the water, encouraging Icelanders to adopt Christianity to avoid conflict with Norway.

You'll then finish your day at your accommodation in North Iceland.

Day 7

Day 7 – West Iceland

  • West Iceland
  • More
  • Eyjafjordur fjord
  • Hvítserkur Rock Stack
  • More

Today, you'll start heading southwest to see more incredible sights of Iceland. Your day will begin by leaving Akureyri.

Your first stop will be Hauganes village. It sits on the magical fjord of Eyjafjordur and has a tiny population of around 140. During your stop here, you can walk around the town and take in some of the sights of Icelandic country life.

The village boasts a rich fishing heritage, and the small harbor is often bustling with local fishermen bringing in the day's catch. The combination of scenic landscapes and authentic coastal living gives visitors a genuine taste of Icelandic fjord life.

The coastal towns in the north of Iceland are the perfect places to see whales, and from Hauganes, you'll head out into the northern waters on a whale-watching tour.

The Eyjafjordur fjord is known for its calm waters and abundant marine life, making it a hotspot for sightings of humpback whales, minke whales, and sometimes even orcas. As you glide across the water, watch for these majestic creatures, playful dolphins, and the diverse seabirds that frequent the area.

Your next stop will be the mystical Hvitserkur area. This part of the country is home to a rock formation of the same name. Hvitserkur protrudes 50 feet (15 meters) from the sea, and is one of Iceland's most photographed rock formations. Local legends say this rock was once a troll who stayed out too late and was turned to stone by the rising sun.

Adding to its allure, the rock stands at about 49 feet (15 meters) high and, from certain angles, resembles a dragon drinking from the sea. Over the years, nesting birds, especially fulmars, have made Hvitserkur their home, giving the rock formation an even more lively and dynamic appearance.

You'll spend the evening in West Iceland.

Day 8

Day 8 – West Iceland

  • West Iceland
  • More
  • Kirkjufell Mountain
  • Djupalonssandur black pebble beach
  • Snaefellsjokull
  • More

Traveling further west, today you'll visit the Snaefellsnes peninsula, affectionately dubbed “Iceland in Miniature” for the wealth of varied natural features that color its jagged coastline. The peninsula is named after Snaefellsjokull, the grand glacier volcano featured in Jules Verne's famous story, “Journey to the Centre of the Earth.”

There will be plenty of sightseeing stops throughout the day. You'll visit one of the most photogenic mountains in Iceland, Kirkjufell, which starred in Season 7 of Game of Thrones as the “mountain shaped like an arrowhead.” You can capture its striking aesthetic with the picturesque foreground waterfall for the perfect picture.

Additionally, the tranquil surroundings of Kirkjufell make it a haven for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts. As you take in the mountain's iconic silhouette against the expansive Icelandic sky, you'll understand why it has inspired countless photographers and filmmakers.

Within Snaefellsjokull National Park, you'll visit Djupalonssandur beach. Mighty waves crash onto this dramatic beach and smooth its resident pebbles beautifully. As you walk into the area, you'll find four heavy lifting stones that sailors used to test their strength.

These stones, each with varying weights, are remnants of an old tradition where sailors proved their worthiness for challenging sea voyages. As you try to lift or observe them, you're momentarily transported to a time when the strength of one's arms could determine their fate on the sea.

Add even more adventure to your day by exploring the underground world of the Vatnshellir lava tube. Equipped with a headlamp, you'll descend to explore the secret colors and structures hiding under our earth's surface.

Delving deep into this 8,000-year-old cave, you'll be greeted by a maze of intricate rock formations and ancient stalactites. Guided by experts, learn about the volcanic activity that sculpted this underground wonder and hear tales of its historical significance.

You'll return to the same accommodation you were in the night before in West Iceland.

  • Deildartunguhver hot spring
  • Reykholt historical site
  • Hraunfossar & Barnafoss waterfalls

Today, you'll begin exploring Iceland's picturesque and fascinating Western region.

First, you'll visit Europe's most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver, which delivers 100 ° Celsius (212° Fahrenheit) of water, heating many of the houses on Iceland's West Coast.

This incredible natural furnace pumps out 39 gallons (180 liters) of boiling water every second. Its steamy surroundings and vibrant, mineral-rich deposits create a surreal backdrop, showcasing the immense geothermal energy that bubbles beneath Iceland's surface.

You'll also visit the Krauma Spa, a geothermal bath in the west. This attraction lets you soak and relax as you take in the views.

The spa combines the hot geothermal water from Deildartunguhver with cool glacial water to achieve the perfect bathing temperature. Its serene ambiance and modern facilities, paired with the breathtaking natural surroundings, make it a haven for rejuvenation.

A goat farm is also on today's agenda. This might not be something you expect in Iceland, but goat farming is, in fact, somewhat thriving here. You'll have the chance to get up close and personal with these charming animals, learning about their significance to Icelandic agriculture.

Next, your group will visit the village of Reykholt. This place was the home of Snorri Sturluson. Snorri was a noted Icelandic poet, historian, and law speaker who lived during the Middle Ages. His work is considered an invaluable record of Old Norse mythology and language.

You'll also make a stop at two incredible waterfalls. Barnafoss and Hraunfossar. Hraunfossar is fed by underground water that soaks through the pores of lava rock. Barnafoss pushes its way through a narrow gorge.

These waterfalls, situated close to each other, showcase the diversity and power of Iceland's natural landscapes. While Hraunfossar mesmerizes with its gentle cascade over the lava, Barnafoss impresses with its forceful flow, creating a stark yet harmonious contrast for visitors to admire.

After another unforgettable day, your driver will take you to your Reykjavik accommodation.

You've traveled the full circle around Iceland, but the adventure is not over yet! You have several options for how you could spend your day.

If you didn't go to the Blue Lagoon on arrival, you can bask in the regenerative waters of this world-famous spa. Pick the comfort package, and you'll receive a complimentary silica mud mask, a towel, and your first drink completely free. There's a bar poolside, so you can enjoy your beverage while relishing the warm water.

Perhaps you fancy something a little more adventurous? If so, explore the Highlands of Iceland on an adrenaline-packed super jeep excursion to Landmannalaugar. This stunning region is characterized by its multicolored hills and riveting hiking trails. It's a place you don't want to miss!

The geothermal hot springs throughout Landmannalaugar offer a unique opportunity to take a warm bath surrounded by a surreal landscape. Whether you're an adventure seeker or just looking to appreciate raw natural beauty, this trip to the Highlands is bound to leave lasting memories.

Another option is to descend into a volcano. Thrihnukagigur volcano is now dormant, last erupting over 4000 years ago, but you can still see evidence of its dramatic past. Explore this brilliantly colored magma chamber and prepare for a journey to the earth's center that you won't easily forget.

If you'd rather relax after your Ring Road adventure, you could opt to spend a day discovering the vibrant and varied city of Reykjavik. Visit one of its many museums or spend the day walking around. It's up to you!

If you didn't opt to explore the inside of a volcano yesterday, don't worry because today, you have another opportunity. Discover the magnificent colors of the inside of a magma chamber by booking a mesmerizing tour of the Thrihnukagigur volcano, including transfers from Reykjavik.

Perhaps you'd rather ascend to the heavens rather than explore under the earth's surface and take an epic helicopter tour. Marvel at the city of Reykjavik as it disappears behind you, and you go on to explore a nearby geothermal area from above. Reach impossibly remote places and admire breathtaking views on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

You could also opt to experience some of the clearest water in the world on a snorkeling tour of the Silfra fissure at Thingvellir National Park. This mesmerizing body of water has visibility of up to 328 feet (100 meters), and you have the extra novelty of swimming between continents! Gear up and get ready for an underwater adventure to remember. Snorkeling participants need to be comfortable in the water and be able to swim.

Silfra is ranked as one of the top locations for cold-water diving. The pristine glacial water, filtered for decades through underground lava, offers a chilly but enchanting dive. The otherworldly shades of blue and unique rock formations of the continental rift make it a surreal experience like no other. 

If you haven't got your fill of the world's northernmost capital yet, spend a day getting to know Reykjavik. Go shopping in the many boutique shops or go to the top of Hallgrimskirkja church and enjoy the incredible panoramic views.

Stroll along the old harbor, where modern cafes and historic buildings blend seamlessly, offering a taste of the city's rich maritime heritage. Dive into Iceland's sagas and history by visiting the National Museum. Finally, relax in one of the city's geothermal pools, a daily ritual for locals and a rejuvenating experience for visitors.

Your adventure has come to an end. Say farewell to the city and catch your complimentary ride to the airport in time for your return flight.

For those who have a later flight and choose to visit the Blue Lagoon today, you'll finish your stay unwinding before heading to the airport. This is the perfect place to relax as you bathe in the warm, mineral-rich waters and reflect on the incredible adventure you've just taken in the land of fire and ice.

If your flight is later, there are plenty of things to do in Reykjavik.

Amid this vibrant city, museums provide glimpses into Iceland's intriguing past and present. The Arbaer Open Air Museum is one such attraction, transporting visitors back in time with its vintage buildings and exhibits from the city's early days.

The Reykjavik Maritime Museum chronicles the country's seafaring history, demonstrating how vital the ocean has been to Iceland's survival and culture. For art enthusiasts, the Reykjavik Art Museum showcases contemporary art in Iceland, housing impressive collections that span multiple venues around the city.

Nestled among the urban spread, several green spaces provide tranquil spots for relaxation and enjoyment. Tjornin, commonly called The Pond, sits in the heart of Reykjavik, surrounded by picturesque historical buildings. This pond is a haven for birdwatchers, as it's frequently visited by over 40 species of birds, especially during the migration season.

A little farther out, the Reykjavik Botanical Gardens offers a serene escape, boasting a vast array of plant species, both native and foreign. The gardens are not only a place of learning but also a perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic on a sunny day.
