Daily itinerary

Day 1
Harpa Concert Hall, one of the most interesting buildings in Reykjavik.

Day 1 - Welcome to Iceland

On the first day of your summer vacation in Iceland, you'll arrive in the country, landing at Keflavik International Airport. 

Once you've collected your luggage, you'll board a bus that will take you through the lunar-like landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula on your way to Iceland's capital, Reykjavik.

You could stop at the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa 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 is in the middle of a moss-covered lava field, giving it an otherworldly atmosphere. Adding the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa to your summer vacation package itinerary will be arranged according to your flights. 

If there is no time to visit the spa today, it can be added to another day. Your travel consultant will be able to arrange this for you. 

There is still plenty to see and do in Reykjavik if you have extra free time on your first day in Iceland.

After settling into your hotel in Reykjavik, you can spend the rest of the day exploring what the city offers. 

Be sure to walk around the old town center and visit the main shopping street, Laugavegur, where you'll find boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

Look around the beautiful Old Harbor area, close to many of the city's most popular museums. If your interest in the sea has been piqued, check out the Reykjavik Maritime Museum to learn more about Iceland's seafaring history.

Reykjavik has some interesting architecture. Look at the glass-fronted Harpa Concert Hall and the impressive church, Hallgrimskirkja. Here you can go to the top of the tower and get spectacular views over the city.

You can take advantage of the long days under the midnight sun, enjoy a meal at a restaurant, or some of Reykjavik's nightlife. If you prefer, head to your accommodation to rest before tomorrow's adventures.

Day 2
The Strokkur geyser erupts at the Geysir geothermal area on the Golden Circle sightseeing route.

Day 2 - The Golden Circle sightseeing route

On the second day of your summer vacation in Iceland, you'll go on a day tour of the Golden Circle sightseeing route. 

The route consists of the Gullfoss waterfall, Haukadalur geothermal area, and the Thingvellir National Parliament Park, the first national park you'll visit out of three during your trip to Iceland. 

The first stop on the Golden Circle route is the Thingvellir National Park. Due to its rich history, where the Icelandic parliament, the Alpingi, was founded in 930 AD, Thingvellir National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is also remarkable for its geology, as it sits above the meeting place of two tectonic plates. You'll be able to see the rifts in the ground, marking where the Eurasian plate and the American plate meet at the Silfra fissure. 

You can also opt for a snorkeling tour in the Silfra fissure, which boasts some of the most transparent waters in the world. Participants need to be comfortable in the water and be able to swim.

Your next stop is the Haukadalur geothermal area. There, you'll find Geysir, the geyser all others in the world are named after. The site is filled with other geothermal hot springs, geysers, and vents. 

Geysir stopped regularly erupting a while back, but the Strokkur geyser that stands next to it erupts frequently and can reach up to 196 feet (60 meters) with each blow.

The last stop on this day will be the Gullfoss waterfall. If conditions allow, you can walk up close to the stunning Gullfoss waterfall and see how it tumbles into the Hvita glacial river canyon over a two-tiered fall of over 98 feet (30 meters).

You can add another optional tour to the day here. 

You could head out from Gullfoss waterfall on horseback and get to know the Icelandic horse and nature better, or you could opt for a faster ride on a snowmobile trip to the Langjokull glacier. 

Afterward, you'll return to Reykjavik, where you will spend the night. You can add additional activities in Reykjavik to your itinerary today, too.

Day 3

Day 3 - Tour of the South Coast

On the third day of your six-day summer vacation in Iceland, you'll start your journey along the beautiful South Coast of Iceland, going to Vatnajokull National Park, the second national park you'll cross on your trip.

On your way there, you'll pass the stunning waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, similar in height but vastly different. 

Seljalandsfoss waterfall is a narrow cascade with an open cave behind the water, making it possible to walk around the waterfall for a unique point of view. The waterfall also boasts a drop of 200 feet (60 meters).

The other waterfall, Skogafoss, is a plunging wall of water, powerful and stunning. Skogafoss features a fantastic width of 82 feet (25 meters), complemented by a drop of 197 feet (60 meters).

Those looking for a unique adventure on this day can add on a glacier hiking tour during the booking process. 

Suitable for all over eight, this excursion will provide insight into Icelandic glaciers. A trained guide will lead you across the icy plains of Solheimajokull glacier, where you'll enjoy incredible views of the South Coast. 

Solheimajokull glacier is part of the larger Myrdalsjokull ice cap. Its icy expanse stretches approximately five miles (eight kilometers), displaying awe-inspiring crevasses, ice sculptures, and blue ice formations. 

Solheimajokull glacier's proximity to the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano, known for its 2010 eruption, adds to its allure. 

However, like many glaciers, Solheimajokull is also affected by climate change, experiencing significant melting and retreat. Its melting has raised awareness about the urgent need to protect these fragile natural wonders. 

You'll be able to learn more about this during the tour.

You'll then continue towards the black sand beach of Reynisfjara black sand beach, where the impressive waves of the Atlantic Ocean hit the shoreline with remarkable force. Make sure you also keep an eye out for some adorable puffins while you are there.

You'll then continue into Vatnajokull National Park, where you will spend the night in comfortable accommodation in Southeast Iceland.

Day 4 - Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

On the fourth day of your vacation package, you'll visit the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon and the nearby Diamond Beach.

You'll wake up in the shadow of the great Vatnajokull glacier and start the day by visiting one of Iceland's most breathtaking natural attractions: the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. 

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is formed by the melting ice from the Breidamerkurjokull glacier, which creates a stunning lake filled with floating icebergs of various shapes and sizes. 

The lagoon's crystal-clear, blue waters reflect the surrounding glaciers and create a magical atmosphere.

If you visit from May to October and wish to get a closer look at these icebergs, you can opt for a boat tour on the lagoon. You'll board an amphibious boat where people of all ages can enjoy a relaxing sail among the giant icebergs.

Boarding a specially designed boat that can traverse land and water, visitors embark on an unforgettable journey amidst majestic floating icebergs. 

Expert guides navigate through the icy maze, providing insights into the glacier's formation and the lagoon's unique ecology. 

The tour allows travelers to witness the lagoon's ethereal beauty up close, providing ample opportunities for photography and encountering curious seals swimming in the waters. 

This one-of-a-kind experience allows visitors to connect intimately with the captivating landscape of Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon.

Close to the lagoon is a black beach where icebergs have broken into smaller pieces and washed onto the sand. When the sunlight hits them, they resemble chunks of diamonds, earning the beach the nickname Diamond Beach.

You will then start heading back towards Reykjavik, stopping at a few of your local guide's favorite locations and enjoying the view of the Westman Islands in the south and the Myrdalsjokull and Eyjafjallajokull glaciers in the north.

In the evening, you'll return to Reykjavik, where you will spend the night in comfortable accommodation.

Day 5 - Reykjavik or the Snaefellsnes Peninsula

On the fifth day of your summer adventure in Iceland, you can spend the day in Reykjavik or head to the Snaefellsnes peninsula.

If you stay in Reykjavik, enjoy exploring the characterful streets, soak up the Nordic culture, and grab some souvenirs.

If you'd rather, pack your hats and mittens and go on a day tour of West Iceland to the beautiful Snaefellsnes peninsula. 

The most famous feature of the Snaefellsnes peninsula is the Snaefellsjokull glacial volcano, made famous by Jules Verne's classic novel “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” as the entry point to the Earth's mysterious core.

Surrounding this glacier is a lava field covered in moss and containing a lot of caves. 

Snaefellsjokull National Park is the only national park in Iceland connected to the sea, and the cliffs along the sea are truly spectacular. The cliffs are easily viewable from the tiny towns of Hellnar and Arnarstapi.

During your trip, you'll also visit the beautiful Djupalonssandur pebbly beach and nearby cove, some small waterfalls, and the famous Kirkjufell mountain near Grundarfjordur. 

Kirkjufell mountain is a popular photography location due to the striking image of the mountain reflected in the nearby pool. Measuring 1,519 feet (463 meters) tall, Kirkjufell mountain is one of the most popular visual landmarks for travelers and seafarers. 

You can take an ATV adventure if you want some extra thrills today. In this incredible experience, you will be picked up at your accommodation in Reykjavik. You will then head to an ATV base camp just outside the city. 

From here, you will be fitted with warm and protective gear. You will then be given a safety briefing, and then you will be off. You will zip through the pristine Icelandic countryside, enjoying the beautiful views. 

Once you have finished your adventure, you will return to your city accommodation.

Tonight, you'll enjoy your final night in Reykjavik.

Day 6 - Departure Day

On the sixth and final day of your summer vacation in Iceland, you'll spend your last few hours in the country and head home. 

For those who have a later flight and choose to visit the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa today, you will finish your stay unwinding before heading to the airport. 

The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa 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 can go on a whale-watching tour from the old harbor in downtown Reykjavik. The boat would take you out on Faxafloi Bay, so you'll also get a view of the city from the sea. 

You can also catch up on some last-minute shopping before boarding your airport transfer shuttle.

Of course, you don't have to go. You can always stay a day longer and have some more adventures. 

You could use your extra day to take a helicopter ride or a riding tour, explore the mountains on ATVs and go lava caving, or enter a volcano, heading around 328 feet (100 meters) below ground into the massive magma chamber of Thrihnukagigur volcano.

You could also take a glacier tour and enter the ice tunnels below the Langjokull glacier or enjoy all Reykjavik offers. 

If you want to extend your tour, move your airport transfer to the following day and enjoy your vacation a little longer.

If you have an early flight back home, enjoy breakfast at your accommodation before heading to the airport.
