Note that Icelandic roads and pavements can be slippery in the wintertime. We recommend you bring shoes with slip-resistant soles or ice-grip shoe covers. The covers can be purchased in most supermarkets and gas stations around the country.



Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Iceland


The beautiful Reykjavík city in the wintertime


You’ll arrive at Keflavík International Airport, located in the barren lava fields of the Reykjanes peninsula. Board a bus heading to Reykjavík city where you’ll find your accommodation for the next few nights.

After you’ve settled in, you can start exploring the city. Reykjavík is a fun and lively place with many museums, art galleries, playgrounds and swimming pools.

The swimming pools are heated using the geothermal energy from the ground, making a visit to them possible even in the wintertime. In fact, a popular activity in Iceland during the winter is to visit one of those pools, soak in the warm waters and breathe in the cold winter air.

In the evening, you'll get to hunt for the elusive Northern Lights by either heading out into the darkened countryside on a bus or by boarding a boat at Reykjavík's Old Harbour and sail out into the ocean in search for these dancing lights.

You'll spend your first night in Reykjavík.


Day 2 - The Golden Circle


The erupting geysers at Geysir geothermal area are a must-see while visiting the Golden Circle


Today, you’ll get to visit Iceland’s most popular attraction, the Golden Circle. This trio of destinations will show you how diverse this little island at the edge of the Arctic Circle can be.

Your first stop today will be Þingvellir National Park where the Viking settlers founded Iceland’s parliament, Alþingi, over a thousand years ago. Þingvellir is not only a site of great historical importance but also a geographical wonder as the park is neither located on the Eurasian tectonic plate nor the North-American one, but in a rift valley between.

The plates are slowly moving apart, tearing up the landscape in the process and creating cracks and canyons in the area. One of those canyons, Silfra fissure, is filled with crystal clear meltwater from Langjökull glacier. Those who have reached the age of 14 can add on a snorkelling tour in the fissure and enjoy the unparalleled visibility of the canyon’s clear waters.

From there, you’ll move on to Haukadalur valley, a place filled with history and folklore, but most importantly, erupting geysers. At Geysir geothermal area, located in the valley, you’ll find the active Strokkur hot spring, which erupts in a 15-20 metre water column every 5-10 minutes. Remember to bring a camera so you can capture the perfect photo of your family with the erupting geyser in the background.

Last but not least is the majestic Gullfoss waterfall. Once again, the glacier Langjökull has had a helping hand in shaping Iceland's landscape. The river Hvítá, fed by this mighty glacier, rushes forth from the highlands before plunging into an ancient canyon, creating this two-tiered waterfall.

Here you can opt for a snowmobile tour on top of Langjökull where you race across the white expanse of the glacier. Those who have a driver’s license can grab the handles of the snowmobile, while those who have reached the age of six can sit at the back as passengers, making it a family-friendly activity.

You’ll then head back to Reykjavík where you will spend the night.


Day 3 - The South Coast


Seljalandsfoss on Iceland's South Coast in winter


Today you’ll explore the beautiful South Coast and see cascading waterfalls, majestic glaciers and a stunning black sand beach.

You’ll be picked up in a minibus in the morning and whisked away to the first attraction of the day, the high and narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This stunning cascade flows over a concaved cliff face where a cave is visible underneath the curtain of water. In the winter, the waterfall is lit up with strong lights making it seem even more magical.

You’ll then move on to another equally beautiful, but utterly different, waterfall; Skógafoss. It is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, with a width of 25 metres and a 60-metre drop. According to local legend, a treasure is buried behind the flowing water.

As you travel between these cascading beauties, the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull will be visible in the north. If you’d like to explore a glacier better, you can add on a hike on Sólheimajökull, one of Mýrdalsjökull outlet glacier. Glacier hiking is a fun, family-friendly activity where participants over the age of 8 can trek across the ice cap and discover a new world of ice sculptures and blue crevasses.

An alternative glacier adventure on this day is to explore a naturally formed ice cave. Each autumn, local guides hike up Mýrdalsjökull glacier to hunt for the perfect natural ice cave. On an Ice Cave tour, those who have reached the age of 12 are taken up the glacier, which covers the volcano Katla, to explore this natural wonder and see how the blue and white of the glacier mixes with jet-black ash from past volcanic eruptions.

From there you’ll visit the stunning black sand beach at Reynisfjara. The beach is edged in by cliffs of dark basalt columns which create a fascinating hexagonal pattern in the cliff face. Out in the ocean rise the 66-metre Reynisdrangar sea stalk resembling terrifying trolls.

Those who wish to explore the South Coast more can add on a tour during the booking process where they hop on a coach bus heading to the gorgeous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. There, you can see enormous icebergs float peacefully on the water before they drift off to sea, and maybe a seal or two swimming by.

On your way back to Reykjavík, where you will spend the night, make sure to look up in the sky for a chance to see the elusive Northern Lights.


Day 4 - Reykjavik and the Blue Lagoon


The Blue Lagoon is a popular stop for people of all ages


Today you’ll get to relax in the warm, healing waters of the Blue Lagoon. The spa is famous for its mineral-rich waters, and it's the perfect way to unwind after days of travelling.

When you return to Reykjavík, you’ll have the day to explore the northernmost capital of the world. You could learn about Viking settlers in the city’s many museums or check out Laugardalur area’s Family park and Zoo.

The zoo is filled with Icelandic farm animals and mammals from the wild such as sheep, foxes, seals and the Icelandic horse. If you’d like to get to know the friendly and gentle Icelandic horse better, you could opt for a horse riding tour through the Icelandic countryside, suitable for both beginners and expert riders over the age of 8.

Another option for animal-lovers is to go on a whale-watching tour from Reykjavík’s old harbour to discover the wealth of marine life just off the city’s shore.

If you’d like to explore the country a bit further, you could schedule your Blue Lagoon visit on another day and take a full-day excursion to visit the Snæfellsnes peninsula, the Ice Cave Tunnels in Langjökull glacier or a natural Ice Cave in Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

Snæfellsnes is a 90 km peninsula filled with natural wonders such as waterfalls, black pebble beaches, and lava fields. It also has a tall and mighty glacier covering an ancient volcano that was featured in Jules Verne’s classic novel ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’.

At the Ice Cave Tunnels in Langjökull, you’ll get to travel through a maze of intricate tunnels that have been carved into the glacier. Everybody from the age of 2 will enjoy this fun and informative journey that is usually only reserved for scientists and glacier experts. You'll travel through the dozens of tunnels and learn how glaciers are formed, how they move, and how climate change is affecting them.

If you choose to travel on this day, your visit to the Blue Lagoon will be moved to another day so it will all fit smoothly into your itinerary. You’ll then spend your last night in Iceland at your accommodations in Reykjavík.


Day 5 - Farewell


The view over 'The Pond' in Reykjavík city in the wintertime


Now it is time to say goodbye to Iceland. If your flight leaves late, you might have time to explore the city better and maybe pick up a souvenir or two.

You could start the day by heading out to your nearest bakery and try some Icelandic pastries like ‘snúður’, a cinnamon filled bread rolled slathered in chocolate, caramel or sugar glaze. Or you could visit some of Reykjavík’s many cafés which offer traditional, and healthier, Icelandic delicacies like ‘skyr’ or ‘flatkökur’.

When it is time to leave, you’ll board the airport bus and head again to the barren lava fields that greeted you when you arrived here only a few days ago.

Day 1 - Airport Transfer and Blue Lagoon > Airport transfer is easy to find. Blue Lagoon (Comfort) - (Free use of towel and 1 drinks) - Getting a "comfort" ticket is not necessary. >> 5/5 Day 2 - The Golden Circle (Troll Expeditions - Wesley (4/5)) > Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir, Þingvellir National Park (+ Snorkeling) - Since we did the Snorkeling, we weren't able to go around the Þingvellir National Park but Snorkeling is a must activity (one of the best thing we did) >> 4/5 Day 3 - The South Coast (Icelandic Mountain Guides - Olöf (4/5))> Sólheimajökull (+ Glacier Hike), Planewreck, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfall - Our tour was cancelled due to bad weather but good thing we were able to reschedule it. Glacier Hike is another must do activity. >> 5/5 Day 3 - Northern Lights Hunting by boat > Location was easy to find - We weren't that lucky to see a strong view of the Northern Lights but still managed to see it. The Boat tour was really not a good idea (for our group) since the boat is constantly moving hence, tripod is not a big help. Also, its not complete darkness since there are still some lights on. >> 3/5 Day 4 - Free day but we opted Snaefellsnes Peninsula (Troll Expeditions - Christian (2/5)) > see review below. Tour guide was not respectful of time. He keeps on waiting for the other bus even if our tour group is complete, hence we are behind schedule. >> 3/5 Hotel Klettur > Room is spacious, good location, breakfast is good but no change in all the days that we were there. Our trip to Iceland was well planned thanks to our trip planner, Mariachiara (with 8 travelers). She is very accommodating and responsive to requests - whether it be for payments, changes and suggestions. Our tours were coordinated well to us, before the trip and the other relevant information. We had some changes from the initial trip planned and refund to activities were promptly received. When we had a cancelled activity, she is quick to take action and rescheduled it accordingly. The itinerary given to us was very detailed, highlighting the important information that we should take note of. On our first day, our flight was delayed so we weren't able to catch the airport transfer scheduled in our itinerary (+Blue Lagoon). However, we were informed by Maria that we can take the next bus and still enter Blue Lagoon. It would have been better to give the bus timetable (Airport-Blue Lagoon // Blue Lagoon-Reykjavik) together with the itinerary so the travelers know the schedule if there would be any delays in the flight. One thing that would have been better to improve is that to mention that the tour scheduled would have a late lunch (or no lunch). Our tour guide for each day, mentions when will the lunch be. However, there was one tour where we were informed that we would have late lunch (4:00 pm) around 1:00 pm, when we are about to leave the stopover. The following day/tour, we were informed that we should buy snacks during the stopover since we won't be able to have other stopovers , it was not clear that we won't be having lunch. So no lunch until we came back to the hotel which is 8:00 pm. Given this scenarios, it would be better to add it as a note in the itinerary about the "lunch" schedules since the tour has a fix schedule per day just so the travelers could prepare something to eat. We also went to Snaefellsnes Peninsula as an add-on to our tour, we didn't have a nice weather during this tour. No complain, we still went through with the tour. There were attractions that requires longer stay but we were given only few minutes and attractions that could be missed out/with short stop and consumed our time. However, it would be better to revisit the attractions (and time allocated) that were included in this tour. On our Day 4 activity, we waited for some travelers, who I think missed the pick-up location, somewhere a long the way. We also keep on waiting for the other minibus before we go to the next destination even if our group is complete (but the other minibus is not waiting for us). We missed destinations and had to use google maps to be sure of the location. However, on our Day 3 activity (rescheduled to Day 5), while we were waiting for the bus (30 mins) some of us went to our rented car to fix our things and the bus came. They said that they will wait for us for only 2 minutes since there is another bus to catch. Hence, we were left behind by the bus for merely 2 minutes but on the previous day, we waited for appx. 30 minutes for the travelers. Good thing we were transferred to another tour group, much smaller and better tour group. Lastly, good thing that we added a "free day" on our travel so we were able to reschedule the cancelled tour. Though it's not a perfect trip, we still enjoyed our stay in Iceland. Thanks to the big help of Guide to Iceland.

Overall, it was excellent! Our thoughts: + A special thanks to the Guidetoiceland.is team, specifically to Catia, for being friendly and thoughtful! + Hotel staff was very friendly as well, the room was spacious and the beds were confortable. Breakfast was also available for those with an early flight, which was great! + On the day we arrived, we got a bit unlucky and it was incredibly windy and rainy, though we still managed to get a nice look at how the city of Reykjavik is and its people. At night, we went to see the Northern Lights, which was very exciting, since our guide (apologies for not remembering his name) was very enthusiastic and really wanted us to get the best view possible. Despite having a cloudy day, we managed to see the lights, and the guide also gave us hot chocolate and donuts. + On our first day tour, we went with Christian, from Troll Expeditions, to see the Golden Circle. He was incredibly knowledgeable and proud to share his country's wonders. + On our second day, the Southern Coast and the best one in our opinion, we were guided by Gusti, who was funny and very engaging with all of us, as he spoke during pretty much the entire trip, as there was always something relevant for him to share with us. Also shared with us some local treats and some Malt Extract, and both were great! + On our 3rd day, we went with Viktor to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. It was the longest day of all our day tours and we even got a chance to see seals. + Last day was the Blue Lagoon, which suffice to say, was perfect to relieve the stress and tiredness from all the previous days. Despite having a lot of people it was very calm and quite. - We only got a minor bad point. We got a less friendly bus driver, from the hotel to the bus depot before the Blue Lagoon, who didn't care much about our bags and just piled everything up in back of the vehicle. Wouldn't even let me readjust them despite having room to do so. We cannot wait to return to Iceland!

I was delighted that everything when so smoothly. The hotel was a really nice place,right in the middle of everything. Unfortunately a night for searching for the Northern Lights was cloudy do that was uncontrollable. The guide for our trip to snowmobile on the guide was a little strange. He delayed our leaving the city by an hour because he was waiting for late arrivals that never showed. Then he acted annoyed when he found out that he was going to have to wait 4 hours while we snowmobiled. When we arrived back to meet him he acted surprised that we wanted to see the Gullfoss waterfall. The day was fun but the guide was a downer. On the day we when yo the Katia I've cave we had the best guide. His me was Quentin and he really made for an enjoyable day. He was always asking if we were comfortable and willing to stop if we needed anything. He was also our I've hiking guide on the glacier. He was very patience with us and always encouraging. He was very knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions. He was with the Katlatrack company. If I ever return to Iceland I would ask for him again. The Blue Lagoon was a very relaxing last day I'm Iceland. Beautiful place,great food. The transportation to and from the airport was great. As I said in the beginning everything was great glad I used this guide service.

Our trip to Iceland was GREAT !!! Guide To Iceland tours was everything we needed in order to see the country and also to enjoy all it has to offer. We had several questions after we booked our trip and our agent answered all of them in a timely manner. We will definitely use Guide to Iceland again. Small groups on the tours, convenient pickups from our Hostel bus stop, friendly and informative guides. All we had to do was show up and everything else was done for us. We do recommend the accommodations that have private bathrooms. After 5 days of sharing with strangers, it would have been worth the extra cost to have our own bathroom.

Fabulous Trip. Iceland is amazing. The people are beautiful and so is the country--so welcoming. The 5day Family Friendly trip was perfect for me. This was my first time out of the country and it was great to have all the details planned for me. I just got on the bus in the morning and enjoyed the day. My hotel was Fosshotel Reykjavik (fabulous) and it was right next to the bus stop we used. The buses were not the ginormous tour buses.... it was small group 8-15 each day. All three of my days of touring were with Troll Expeditions and they were fabulous. I snorkeled Silfra and it was amazing. DO IT!! I did the glacier hike-- This was fabulous as well. I truly run out of adjectives to describe the beauty of the waterfalls, the sweeping grasses with sheep in the hills and the barren fields of lava rocks and moss. Things I might do differently: I brought a refillable water bottle with me and that was definitely a good idea. I would maybe have used a hydration back pack or something, just to let me drink more and pack snacks. On the three travel-packed days lunch was what was obtained at gas stations (mind you, it was a very nice selection). I wish I would have understood that better-- I might have went shopping or something, to have a sandwich or something different/more sustaining. Overall, this was an extraordinary trip, well planned and amazing. I feel like I have seen a small sliver of the country and look forward to coming back. Guide to Iceland made it easy to plan. They were quick to respond and accommodating of questions and changes to itinerary --even last minute ones.

Trip dates: 6-10 April 2019 The first night we went to see the northern lights by boat. We were not very lucky as it was a bit too cloudy and didn't manage to see anything. However, they gave us a free ticket to try again. We went back the second night and then we managed to see a beautiful aurora. The guides on the boat were extremely helpful, showing us how to set the cameras to capture this phenomenon and provided extensive information about the auroras. Definitely a must. The only problem was walking back to the hotel at midnight, when we were tired and it was windy and cold. We ended up taking a cab. The second day we had the Golden circle tour. The guide was a-ma-zing. She explained thousands of interesting things about Iceland's history and present while showing herself deeply enthusiastic about what she was telling us. She also gave us traditional Icelandic food and drinks, and let us listen to Icelandic music. The landscapes were fantastic: waterfalls, geysers, horses and sheep, the parliament fields... Wonderful tour. The third day we traveled around the south coast and walked a small piece of a glacier. The waterfalls were breathtaking and the glacier hiking was a completely new, fascinating experience. We visited a plane wreck, which in my opinion, I would have preferred to visit some village like Vik instead. The fourth day we had the Blue Lagoon visit. It was better than I expected. There were many people but it didn't feel packed, there were no long queues, and there was plenty of room in the pool. Tip for the ladies: put your hair up! The water really dried my hair for the next few days, but my skin was wonderful ;-) We wish we had had the chance to try dog sledding. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to combine with our tours this time, what a pity... :-( We were extremely lucky with the weather. It was sunny every single day, windy sometimes but mostly warm during the day. Not a single raindrop. The hotel was really good. Top-floor room at the end of the corridor, super quiet and spacious. The breakfast buffet was good, too, and very helpful hotel staff. I definitely recommend this 5-day trip. The guide to Iceland agent was extremely helpful, answering all my questions and organizing the perfect trip. Thank you for making this experience possible!

This family vacation was better than I could’ve imagined!! From the scenery to the experience .....all 5 stars!
Edit review
We had a great time in Iceland! Everything was nicely arranged, the itinerary and vouchers easy to understand and use. The hotel exceeded what we were expecting in terms of quality, although we would opt to be much closer to the city centre. There are some brilliant shopping spots and a great bakery restaurant with very good coffee (Australian coffee snob) called Sandholt.
Edit review
It has been a great experience to receive such a comprehensive review of Iceland's natural wonders. The day trips were well organized and the guides knowledgeable about the subject matter, in addition providing interesting tales and insights into the Icelandic culture and language. Overall, a great family experience. Highly recommended!
