Daily itinerary

Day 1
Watch a romantic sunrise together in Iceland

The South Coast

After the lights of the city have faded behind you, you’ll zoom through the countryside, heading toward the famous volcano under a glacier, Eyjafjallajökull, which made headlines around the world when it last erupted in 2010. Seljalandsfoss waterfall is found at the foot of this glacier, and it cascades a vast 60-metres down from the interior.

Next, you’ll see Skógafoss waterfall, 18 stories high, plunging down from cliffs which used to mark the coastline of Iceland during the last Ice Age.

Continuing down the coast, you’ll see the awesome power of the Atlantic Ocean as it pummels the black sands at Reynisfjara Beach. Black basalt carves strange column shapes in the cliffs and forms sea stacks not far from the shore.

Be careful when approaching the water at this beach. Because there is no landmass between Iceland and Antarctica, the ocean has plenty of space to gather extraordinary power. The unwary can be swept out to sea in seconds.

After stopping for some refreshments, you’ll continue through imposing sand plains and lava fields, passing by Skaftafell Nature Reserve, an area of many hiking trails and tracks. The highlight of this day will be Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a deep lake filled with huge chunks of glacial ice slowly drifting out to sea.

For your evening accommodation, you will stay at Hotel Höfn, arriving around dinner time - just in time to try the lobster in a town that is famous for langoustine! You’ll spend the evening looking for the Northern Lights if the Aurora forecast and cloud cover is right.

During holiday seasons (e.g. Christmas and New Year), accommodation might be arranged at other locations in the southeast. Please refer to the accommodation section for more details.  

Day 2
The crystal blue ice cave is more romantic than a shiny diamond

Ice Caving

Today's journey will be dominated by the excitement of ice cave exploration. Good hiking shoes are essential, as it will take a few minutes' to hike to the cave; they should cover your ankles to prevent your feet from getting wet if there is a little meltwater.

It is important when spending time in an ice cave to proceed with caution and heed the advice of your guide. Glaciers are truly spectacular, but it is not possible to visit without a specialized guide and the necessary equipment.

You'll have at least 45 minutes to explore, if not more. Be sure that your winter hat is not so bulky that it won't fit under your caving helmet. Safety first! Your guide will share with you his expertise and knowledge about the ice caves, allowing you to truly appreciate this amazing natural phenomenon.

During the drive back to Reykjavík, you will travel again through the beautiful stretch of coastline on Iceland's south shore. Your guide will point out anything that you missed the day before and if atmospheric conditions are right, you may have another opportunity to look for the Northern Lights.

You'll arrive in Reykjavík in the evening, giving you plenty of time to enjoy what the city has to offer.
