Daily itinerary

Day 1

Arrival

Welcome to the Land of Ice and Fire!

The first view you'll get is the stunning lava fields of Reykjanes peninsula. Enjoy the lunar landscape of Iceland on your travel from the airport to the city. You'll soon be in the northernmost capital in the world, where you have the remainder of the day to explore and experience the unique Nordic vibe. Check out the scu...

Day 2

The Famous Golden Circle

Your day will start early, so put on good shoes and grab your camera; you're going out to see some of Iceland's finest attractions. The Golden Circle is a set of three locations in the southwest part of the island. The first one is Þingvellir National Parliament Park, where the first Icelandic parliament gathered in the year 930 AD. The deep rifts in the lan...

Day 3

The Wild South Coast

This day is for those who adore nature and all that it has to offer, from high mountains to low beaches, white glaciers, and black cliffs.

You'll head out along the south coast, traveling under the magnificent Eyjafjallajökull glacier, that gained notoriety for clearing the skies of airplanes a while back, and the great white cap of its bigger brother, Mýrdal...

Day 4

Farewell to Iceland

All good things come to an end, and on this day it is time to say goodbye. Depending on your flights, you may have the morning at peace in the city, or, if you prefer, you could visit the Blue Lagoon, if you didn't have a chance to do so before.

You'll be at the airport in time for your flight to check in and enjoy the last look of the dark, desolate fields around the airport before heading home.

We hope to see you again in Iceland!

The driver will be waiting in the lobby to collect you and drive you straight to your accommodation in Reykjavik afterwards, which takes around 30 to 35 minutes. For your return journey, your private transfer driver will pick you up from outside your accommodation and drop you off at the airport directly. The total time would be around 45 minutes. Please note that if your Blue Lagoon cannot be fit into your arrival/departure day, you will take the shuttle between the Blue Lagoon and the city.
