Daily itinerary

Day 1
Start a holiday to Iceland in the right way, by bathing in the Blue Lagoon.

Day 1 - Arrival Day in Iceland

Your Iceland adventure begins with an exhilarating arrival day filled with awe-inspiring sights and immersive experiences. With the airport in the middle of a lava field, you'll get a hint of Iceland's diverse nature as you exit the arrivals hall.

After disembarking from your flight, the first treat awaiting you is a complimentary bus ride to Reykjavik, the vibrant capital of Iceland. You'll soon find yourself aboard a comfortable bus, ready to embark on a short journey through the Reykjanes Peninsula.

Mossy lava fields and lunar landscapes stretch as far as the eye can see in Reykjanes, an introduction to the remarkable terrain Iceland has in store for you. The bus's large windows provide a front-row seat to this otherworldly beauty.

But the Reykjanes peninsula holds more than just visual delights. Nestled within this volcanic wonderland is the iconic Blue Lagoon, a geothermal oasis renowned worldwide. Your adventure package includes the standard comfort entrance to the Blue Lagoon, ensuring a relaxing first day of your Icelandic getaway.

Slip into the soothing blue waters, enriched with rejuvenating minerals like silica and sulfur, known for their therapeutic benefits. Just don't forget to pack your swimwear if you don't want to rent on-site.

Emerging from the Blue Lagoon, you'll continue your journey and soon reach Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital. After checking in to your hotel and settling, the day to explore this vibrant city is yours. 

Wander through the charming streets of the city center, discovering hidden gems like the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church, which offers breathtaking views of Reykjavik from its tower. 

Explore the bustling shopping streets of Laugavegur and Skolavordustigur, dotted with designer boutiques and cozy cafes. You can also delve into the city's rich cultural heritage with visits to museums showcasing Iceland's unique history and art.

Afterward, you'll spend your first evening and first night in Reykjavik.

Day 2
The first major waterfall visitors who explore the South Coast will see is the serene and unique Seljalandsfoss.

Day 2 - The South Coast

Today, you will head out from the city and start your exploration of Iceland. Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation or at an accessible bus stop in the city center. Then, you’ll enjoy a day of exploring the South Coast of Iceland, known for its glaciers, beaches, and waterfalls.

Traveling along the South Coast, you will pass great glaciers and volcanoes. One of them is the Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano, famed for putting Europe’s air traffic to a complete standstill in 2010. You will see the glacier volcano on the horizon if the skies are clear.

You will also visit the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Vastly different from one another, they both offer incredible beauty and certainly great photo opportunities. Seljalandsfoss is tall and narrow, while Skogafoss is vast and more powerful.

You can admire the water curtain of Seljalandsfoss waterfall from behind because of the narrow cave around it. Meanwhile, rainbows are familiar sights above Skogafoss on a sunny day because of its heavy mist.

You will then visit the village of Vik and the black Reynisfjara beach, where the Atlantic ocean rushes up on the shore with terrifying force. Nearby are the Reynisdrangar black rock stacks looming over the scene in solemn silence as your guide relays local myths and tales.

Meanwhile, Vik is a coastal village with charming streets and quaint shops. There are souvenir stores in the area if you’re looking for local products.

Those looking to spice up their day with adventure can add on a glacier hiking tour during the booking process and ascend the Solheimajokull glacier. There, you'll get a fantastic view of the South Coast and see sky-blue crevasses and snowy mountain peaks.

The end of the day will bring you to your accommodations near Jokulsarlon, a glacier lagoon that you will explore in the morning.

Day 3
Jökulsárlón is a glacier lagoon that attracts tens of thousands of visitors to Iceland, and provides a taste of what exists in Greenland.

Day 3 - Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach

On day three of your Nordic summer package, you will explore the crown jewel of Iceland's beautiful nature, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. It's a must-visit destination in the land of fire and ice because of its unique features and surrounding views.

Nestled beneath the massive Breidamerkurjokull glacier of the Vatnajokull National Park, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon is a true Icelandic gem. As you approach, you'll be greeted by a breathtaking sight of shimmering blue and green water created by the melting glacier.

The main features of Jokulsarlon are the thousands of icebergs floating in its 660-foot (200-meter) deep waters. These ice chunks come in different colors and sizes, with some as small as your palm or as big as a two-story building.

Another remarkable feature of Jokulsarlon is the wildlife it harbors. You'll hear the calls of seabirds in the sky and see playful seals swimming among the enormous icebergs that have broken off from the glacier above. If you spot them, please maintain a respectable distance to avoid disturbing them in their natural habitat.

For a closer look at the icebergs, you can hop on an amphibious boat, which moves slowly and is perfect for families and photographers. This boat ride takes you right up to the ice formations, giving you an incredible view of their beauty and grandeur. You can join this optional tour during the booking process.

Close to Jokulsarlon is the Diamond Beach. There, ice chunks from the lagoon have washed up on the shore, glistening in the sunlight. This is a fantastic place to photograph as the sparkling ice and surrounding black sand beach create a fairytale-like landscape.

You'll return to Reykjavik late in the evening and stay there tonight. En route to the Icelandic capital, you'll see the South Coast from a different perspective, enriching your experience.

Day 4
Kulusuk is a serene village in the east of Greenland.

Day 4 - Greenland Awaits

On day four, the highlight of this summer vacation awaits you. The adventure will take you away from Iceland and onto the coasts of Greenland's Kulusuk village.

The two-hour flight from Reykjavik to Kulusuk promises a visual feast, taking you over vast expanses of deep blue seas and oceans. Upon arrival, you'll witness a dramatic spectacle of ice sheets and mountainous coastlines looming on the horizon that define Greenland's unique allure. 

It's an opportunity to immerse yourself in the Arctic Circle, a region marked by its northern polar beauty. The moment your feet touch the ground, you'll be immersed in the mesmerizing beauty of this remote destination.

Accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide, your day in Greenland starts with a guided walking tour through Kulusuk village. Stroll along winding pathways lined with colorful houses, each telling a story of the resilient Inuit culture that thrives here. 

Your guide will offer insights into the daily life of the locals, including their age-old traditions like kayak crafting and sealskin artistry.

As you explore, you'll have ample opportunities to interact with the welcoming villagers, gaining a deeper understanding of their way of life and the challenges they face in this unique environment. The village's stunning backdrop, with towering glaciers and the Arctic Ocean, provides a breathtaking setting for your cultural immersion.

Your walking tour also includes a nature walk through the surrounding wilderness. Traverse rugged landscapes and meander along pristine fjords as you soak in the serene natural beauty of Greenland. Like Jokulsarlon, floating icebergs are familiar sights in the seas and oceans surrounding the village.

Your guide will share knowledge about the region's flora, fauna, and the geological forces that have shaped this Arctic wonderland.

In the afternoon, you'll take a flight to the local airport back to Reykjavik, where you will stay for the night.

Day 5
The Golden Circle is the most popular and beloved tourist route in Iceland throughout the year, and culminates at Gullfoss waterfall.

Day 5 - The Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is undoubtedly the most famous attraction in Iceland. Located in the southwestern lowlands, it includes three of Iceland's most famous natural landmarks: Thingvellir National Parliament Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall.

You'll start your journey early in the morning, heading to Thingvellir. This UNESCO World Heritage site offers vast lava fields filled with history, as this is where Icelanders formed their democratic parliament in the year 930.

The next stop is Haukadalur valley. Home to the great Geysir, which lends its name to all others, the site has numerous hot springs. The most active one, Strokkur, blows every five to 10 minutes, hurling water up to 60-foot 20-metre height.

The final stop of the day is the Gullfoss waterfall. This two-tiered waterfall is situated in the glacier river Hvita, and the sheer force of the water plummeting 105 feet (32 meters) into the canyon below causes water to spray over the banks and cliffs.

If you'd like to add adventure to your day, there is plenty to choose from for an extra cost. You could opt to go snorkeling in the Silfra fissure at Thingvellir, known for its crystal clear waters. Snorkeling participants need to be comfortable in the water and be able to swim.

You could go snowmobiling on the white glacier caps on the nearby Langjokull glacier, or, if you prefer a more natural steed, go horseback riding in the countryside as a part of your Golden Circle tour.

A final option for excursion today is to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime hiking trip to Fagradalsfjall, the volcano that underwent eruptions on Iceland's Reykjanes Peninsula.

Conducted in the evening under the safe eye of an experienced guide, you will trek through strange, barren landscapes to the lava field for an unparalleled view of the molten rivers, young craters, and spectacular ravines. This adventure lasts five hours, with each moment promising thrilling experiences you will never forget.

Whatever you choose, the day will be sure to be amazing. You will then return to Reykjavik for your last night in Iceland.

Day 6
Many of Reykjavík's great buildings are internationally known; Harpa is the most recent addition.

Day 6 - Departure

On your last day in Iceland, it's time to say goodbye and head to the Keflavik International Airport for your flight home. Your Icelandic vacation package includes a bus ride from Reykjavik to the airport to make your departure more convenient.

You might wake up feeling sad, knowing your Icelandic adventure is ending, but you might also be excited to share your stories when you return home. Depending on when your flight leaves, you might have some morning hours to check out more of Reykjavik, the fantastic capital city.

If your flight is in the afternoon or evening, you can explore Reykjavik for a few more hours. Wander around the colorful streets and visit some of the city's highlights. The Hallgrimskirkja church is a must-see, offering fantastic panoramic views of Reykjavik from its tower.

Nearby are more iconic cultural sites like the Harpa Concert Hall, Sun Voyager, and Perlan Museum. The latter requires an entrance fee.

For a last-minute culinary experience, Reykjavik has some unique treats. Try a hot dog at Baejarins Beztu Pylsur, a famous hot dog stand that even Bill Clinton visited. 

On the other hand, you can also indulge in Icelandic seafood, like a hearty bowl of lobster soup or a plate of freshly caught fish and chips. Local cafes serve delicious pastries and coffee, perfect for a cozy break.

Remember to pick up some souvenirs to remember your trip. Icelandic wool sweaters, known as lopapeysa, are a classic choice. You can also buy handcrafted jewelry, lava rock trinkets, and Viking-inspired goodies.

When it's time to leave Reykjavik, hop on the bus to the Keflavik International Airport. The buses are comfy, and the ride offers great views of Iceland's stunning scenery. You can admire the rugged coast, big mountains, and amazing landscapes one last time.

Once you get to the airport, things are straightforward. It's well-organized with duty-free shops and food places. Have a safe flight and see you on your next Icelandic holiday.
