Daily itinerary

Day 1
Enjoy Reykjavik's beautiful mountain horizon.

Day 1 - Arrival and Optional Blue Lagoon Spa or Reykjavik Exploration

Welcome to Iceland! As soon as you land, your adventure will start. You'll be picked up by an experienced driver, who will take you through the black lava field that surrounds the airport.

You could stop at the Blue Lagoon on your way to Iceland's capital city. 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 will be able to arrange this for you. There's plenty to see and do in Reykjavik if you have extra free time.

After an introduction to the fascinating Icelandic landscape, you'll spend the afternoon and evening in the northernmost capital in the world, known for its excellent selection of restaurants and cafes. Settle into your hotel, then take a walk in the city area, visit the tower of Hallgrimskirkja church, or browse the many boutiques downtown. The city has something for everyone!

For those interested in understanding the nation's rich history and culture, the National Museum of Iceland is a must-visit, with exhibits that traverse the island's history from the Viking era to modern times. Meanwhile, the Reykjavik Maritime Museum provides insight into Iceland's deep relationship with the sea and its impact on the country's development.

Between these cultural explorations, a peaceful stroll around Tjornin, the city's central pond, is a lovely way to enjoy the city's natural beauty. It's frequently visited by numerous bird species, making it a popular spot for birdwatching.

When you're ready to settle in for the night, head to your cozy city-center accommodation for a good night's sleep.

Day 2
Maximise your glacier experience by snowmobiling across the snowy expanses of the Langjokull glacier.

Day 2 - Wonders of the Golden Circle and Snowmobile Adventure

You'll have an early start on day two to embrace a day full of adventure.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you around the famous Golden Circle driving route, home to some of the most incredible sights in southwest Iceland. This route takes you to the Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area, and the Gullfoss waterfall.

The first stop is Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the tectonic plates of Europe and America are being forced apart. The result is a geological marvel where you can walk between continents. The name Thingvellir means "parliament fields," and Iceland's first parliament was founded there more than a thousand years ago.

Your next stop is the Haukadalur valley, where the hot springs and geysers keep their court around the king, the Great Geysir, from which all geysers derive their English name. It's mostly dormant, but you'll enjoy a spectacular display from its neighbor, Strokkur. The hot springs at Geysir wear a full spectrum of colors from the abundant minerals in the water, always bubbling and bursting into the air. 

Your last stop is the Gullfoss waterfall in the glacial river, Hvita. The "Golden Waterfall" drops approximately 130 feet (40 meters) in a tiered, two-plateau display. You can walk on the well-maintained pathways by the water to feel the ice-cold droplets fall like rain, thrown into the air by the waterfall's awe-inspiring power.

Next, you'll embark on an exciting snowmobiling adventure. Riding a super jeep into the Highlands is already an experience to behold. When you reach "the long glacier" of Langjokull, you'll don your safety gear, ready for an exhilarating ride ahead.

A snowmobiling excursion is the perfect way to enjoy the glacier's white expanse and fly over centuries-old ice. You'll be immersed in a panorama of white ice and blue sky, where you'll understand the feeling of being at the end of the world.

Having had your fill of adventure, your driver will bring you back from the edge of the world so you can spend another night in Reykjavik.

Day 3
A hike on the Solheimajokull glacier is sure to leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

Day 3 - South Coast Waterfalls and Glacier Hiking Excursion

Iceland's South Coast is famed for its diversity. Prepare for a long day to fully enjoy its breathtaking landscapes.

After heading out early in the morning, your first stop will be the lovely Seljalandsfoss waterfall, leaping over an inwards tilted cliff face, forming a small green oasis that is easily accessible. You'll see the waterfall from behind, an unusual angle perfectly capturing the cascade's incredible beauty and fairytale-like setting.

The next stop is the vast and majestic Skogafoss waterfall, which spans an impressive width of 82 feet (25 meters). The terrain below this awe-inspiring natural feature is relatively flat, allowing you to get close to its thunderous spray. Be careful not to get too wet!

You'll then continue along the coast, taking in the dazzling scenery and traveling alongside the notorious Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano. It famously caused quite a stir during its 2010 eruption, severely disrupting European air traffic.

Nearby, you'll leave the beaten path and travel up to the Solheimajokull glacier, a glacial outlet of the Myrdalsjokull ice cap. Iceland's fourth-largest ice cap sits atop the infamous volcano, Katla.

All professional gear is provided for your glacier hiking adventure, and you don't need previous experience. Your expert guide will advise you on how to use the equipment and give you tips about glacier hiking.

First, you'll walk past an ever-growing glacier lake on your way to the glacier's edge. It's a beautiful sight with ice chunks adorning the waters, yet a sobering reminder of climate change.

Your expert guide will lead you across the vast icy expanse from the glacier's edge. Your guide knows the best spots to appreciate the glacier's magnificent formations and crevasses for an unforgettable experience.

When you find yourself atop this icy giant, you can take in the serene surroundings of this remote location and marvel at the brilliant panoramic views of the coastline and Highland interior.

After your memorable glacier hiking adventure, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik for a night in the city and some well-deserved rest.

Day 4
Visiting the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa makes for the perfect end to your Iceland adventure.

Day 4 - Departure Day with Optional Blue Lagoon or Reykjavik Sightseeing

Your last day in Iceland has arrived! For those who have a later flight and choose to visit the Blue Lagoon today, you will finish off your stay unwinding before you head 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 have just taken in the land of fire and ice.

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

You could visit Harpa, Reykjavik's stunning concert hall and conference center by the old harbor. Known for its distinctive glass facade inspired by the basalt landscape of Iceland, it's home to the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera.

Another excellent option is immersing yourself in the world of visual art at the Reykjavik Art Museum, spread over three locations in the city. Each site offers a unique perspective on the Icelandic art scene.

Afterward, explore the street art around Reykjavik. The city's streets are adorned with vibrant and thought-provoking murals that add color to the urban landscape. 

Alternatively, check out Perlan, a unique landmark in Reykjavik. This innovative structure features a museum with interactive exhibits about Iceland's geological forces, a planetarium, and a viewing deck with a 360-degree view of the city and its surroundings. 

A driver will take you back to the airport in plenty of time for your flight home. We wish you a pleasant journey and hope to see you again soon.
