Daily itinerary

Day 1

Arrival – Welcome to Iceland

You’ll land at Keflavík International Airport, located in the middle of a lava field on the Reykjanes peninsula. Located in this black and barren area is the famous Blue Lagoon spa. If you opted to during the booking process, you can stop there on your way to Reykjavík, for a soak in the rejuvenating waters to rid you of all jet lag.

Once you arrive in the ci...

Day 2

The Golden Circle

On your second day, it is time to leave the city and head into nature. Some of Iceland's most amazing sites are just a short drive from the capital, so pack your camera and put on good shoes before your guide picks you up to explore the area known as The Golden Circle.

Your first stop is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where Viking sett...

Day 3

The Wild South Coast

Today, your guide will pick you up and whisk you out of the city. You’ll follow the southern coastline all the way to Vatnajökull National Park, where you will spend the night at the foot of Europe’s largest glacier. En route, there will be some spectacular scenery and thrilling adventures.

The first stop today is at the waterfall Seljalandsfoss. This high an...

Day 4

Ice Hikes and Boat Rides

Today, you’ll explore what many consider to be one of the most beautiful locations in Iceland, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

The massive glacier lagoon is filled with enormous icebergs which have broken off a nearby glacier. They lazily float on the calm water on their way towards the ocean. Between these massive bergs, you can often see seals swimming, pla...

Day 5

Fire vs. Ice

On this day you can either take it hot or take it cool.

Your first option is to crank up the heat and join a trip to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you'll head into the earth to visit the magma chamber of this now-dormant giant. The cavernous space might remind some of a dragon's treasure trove, where vibrant minerals paint a symphony of colours on the stone wa...

Day 6

Nature Lover vs. City Slicker

Today you have the option of exploring the city better or heading back out into the wild Icelandic nature.

For your first option, you can join a tour into the Highlands. You'll board a super jeep that will take you up into the mountains to the Landmannalaugar natural paradise. The area, nestling in the shadow of the mighty volcano Hekla, is known for its beau...

Day 7

Departure Day & Farewell to Iceland

Now it is time to pack your bags and say goodbye to the land of ice and fire. 

If you have an afternoon or an evening flight, you can use your last remaining hours in Iceland to explore Reykjavík further. You could visit Hallgrímskirkja church or Harpa concert hall. A highly recommended activity is to walk down Laugavegur shopping street and pick up a souveni...
