Day 1 - Arrival in Iceland & Blue Lagoon
On your way from the airport you may choose to head straight to Reykjavík and relax in the vibrant city. 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 in the winter cold. You will then spend your first night in Iceland at accommodation in Reykjavík.
Day 2- The Golden Circle
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. If you are an animal lover, you can add on a horse riding tour during the booking process where you'll meet the friendly Icelandic horse and ride around the beautiful countryside. After this amazing trip, you'll return to the city to unwind and spend another night at your Reykjavík accommodation.
Day 3- South Iceland & Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon
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.
Day 4- Blue Ice Cave in Vatnajokull National Park
Your first destination of the day will be Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you can marvel over icebergs breaking from a glacier and cruising towards the ocean. Watch as icebergs wash up and glisten in the surf on a nearby beach aptly called the Diamond Beach.
Day 5- Reykjavik City and Departure
If time permits, explore the wonders of Reykjavík. Make the most of your proximity to the vibrant city centre, and discover the multitude of museums, cafés, galleries, restaurants, designer shops and bars. Reykjavík also has many public outdoor pools that are warm all year round, so you can relax in a sauna, soak in a hot tub and meet the locals. You can also admire the architecture of Hallgrímskirkja church and take in the incredible view of the city and its nearby mountains from its tower. Go ahead and explore the quirky shops and take a look at Reykjavík's street art or sit down for a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate in Harpa, Reykjavík's concert hall, with a view over the Old Harbour. If you did not have the chance to go to the Blue Lagoon on your arrival day, you could visit today before you head to the airport for your departure.
