    Itinerary

    Day 1 - Arrival - Welcome to Iceland

    Enjoy airport pickup and behold the spectacular sights on the way as you are taken on a ride through the lunar landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula, seeing many volcanoes, the most distinctive of which is the cone-shaped Keilir. Take the time to explore the wonderful city and tuck into some treats at plethora of delicious, world-class restaurants, gourmet coffee shops, cutting-edge cocktail bars and microbreweries, and various joints with live music. For a rather small place, it is overflowing with culture. You'll spend the evening in the bustling city centre of Reykjavik.

    Day 2 - Golden Circle Adventure - Power of Earth

    Marvel at the wonders of the Golden Circle starting with Þingvellir National Park, a site located between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. You may choose to visit Silfra, a site filled with crystal clear glacial water which makes it a popular snorkelling and diving site. Head next to Geysir geothermal area where the impressive Strokkur geyser erupts every five to ten minutes, creating a water column that can reach heights of up to 40m! Then visit Gullfoss Waterfall, one of the most iconic falls in Iceland and watch the Hvítá glacier river cascade into an ancient gorge in two tiers with enormous power.

    On the way back to the city after the Golden Circle tour, you’ll make a stop at the Blue Lagoon, for a sensory experience unique to Iceland. You may also choose to unwind in the azure lake and healing waters of the Blue Lagoon and enjoy clouds of steam from the hot, geothermal water rise into the sky. Release all your tension, letting the azure water soothe tired muscles and joints. You'll spend the night in Reykjavik.

    Day 3 - The South Coast: Ice, Water and Volcanoes

    Immerse yourself in the waterfalls, glaciers and coastal wonders of the South Coast and drive past the notorious Eyjafjallajökull volcano which erupted in 2010. The first site you will reach is Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall you can fully encircle for some wonderful views. Also visit the Gljúfrabúi, another beautiful waterfall which is not seen by many as it is hidden in a cleft in a mountain before heading to the famous Skógafoss waterfall renowned for its awe-inspiring power.

    Next on the itinerary is a visit to the glacier Mýrdalsjökull where you explore the landscape atop an ice cap in two different ways. You can choose between a tour atop this great glacier or a visit to the nearby Sólheimajökull. If you elected to, during the booking process, you can embark on a glacier hike up Sólheimajökull where you can trek past blue crevasses and high peaks that are blackened by the ash from nearby volcanoes.
    You can also take a trip to the Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you can descend more than 100 m (328 ft) down into its magma chamber and behold the amazing play of colours gleaming in the volcanic rock surface.

    Day 4 - Departure

    You will be picked up at your hotel and taken to Keflavik International Airport in time for your flight. If you opt to add on one more day to your stopover, there is plenty of excitement on offer. The most popular activities in Iceland include white river rafting on the great river Hvítá. ATV and buggy trips will take you to on the mountainsides around the city, or you can visit the puffins at Akurey, a small island just off the coast near Reykjavik.
