Daily itinerary

Day 1

Arrival in Iceland & Blue Lagoon

As soon as you arrive in Iceland, your otherworldly journey begins. From Keflavík International Airport, you'll be transported through the moon-like lava landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula to your accommodation in downtown Reykjavík.

The park is neither located on the Eurasian tectonic plate, no...

The South Coast of Iceland is filled with breathtaking wonders and today, you'll start your two day trip along it.

First up, you will see Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a stunning high and narrow cascade that falls over a 62-metre cliff face. Behind the curtain of falling water, a large cave is visible, and in the winter, this majestic waterfall is illuminated by...

Day 4

Blue Ice Cave in Vatnajokull National Park

Today, you'll have the rare opportunity to visit a natural ice cave. You'll start the day by hopping on a large custom SUV known as a 'super jeep' and enjoy an adventurous trip over the harsh terrain leading to the cave.

Ice caves are only accessible from November until March each year, so a trip to one is truly a unique experience.  The caves vary in size an...
