Day 1: Arrive Iceland

The Flybus shuttle brings you from Keflavík International Airport to the accommodation in Reykjavik where you spend the night. We provide ideas how to explore Iceland's capital on your own, dinner suggestions too! Food lovers will be pleased and perhaps even impressed by the number of diverse restaurants in Reykjavik. Many award winning chefs create delicious Icelandic cuisine that is characterized by an imaginative use of local ingredients such as fresh seafood, organic lamb, and wild game; but be sure to try the fabulous Icelandic hot dog and pizza too!

Accommodation in Reykjavik

Day 2: The Golden Circle (220 km/ 136 miles)  

At 08:30 meet your tour guide and start the escorted tour program with a short introduction to Icelandic geology while watching a striking film at the Reykjavik Volcano House documenting the eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull and Fimmvörðuháls in 2010. At the Volcano House, you can experience a hands-on geological exhibition where you can examine various pieces of pumice, ash, and lava from Icelandic volcanoes. Later on, we depart from Reykjavik and drive to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, we continue to explore the hot springs at Geysir. Next, we travel to the double waterfall, Gullfoss. We continue to Kerið, a caldera with a crater lake on the bottom and which resembles an ancient amphitheater. In the evening, you hear about the Northern Lights from your tour guide. Naturally, once darkness falls, you are out in the garden waiting for the Northern Lights. We will stay for one night in South Iceland.

Accommodation in South Iceland

Day 3:  Vatnajokull National Park & Glacier Lagoon (385 km/ 239 miles)

A long drive brings us to a world of glaciers, ice, and icebergs. We travel Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest national park and glacier and to Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon which is filled with floating icebergs. You can walk on the black sandy beach, the so-called Diamond Beach, where large icebergs get stranded. Tonight you can enjoy a movie presentation about Northern Lights as a part of the Northern Lights educational program. Be careful not to go to bed too soon in this remote and quiet location, or you may just miss out one more chance of seeing the Northern Lights shimmering and dancing across the night sky.

Accommodation in Vatnajokull National Park Region

Day 4: South Coast (305 km/ 189 miles)

Today, we head across the Laki lava field to the village of Vik where we make a photo stop. We take a stroll on the black lava beach and along the bird cliffs at Reynisfjara beach in South Iceland. We pass the glacier Myrdalsjokull and the infamous volcano Eyjafjallajakull and continue to Skogafoss waterfall which is 62 meters high and belongs to the most impressive waterfalls in the country. Further west we reach the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is 65 meters high and plunges over the mountain. In the evening you return to Reykjavik for one last night. An optional Northern Lights bus tour or fjord cruise can be booked on the spot if the weather conditions are ideal. We will stay for one night in Iceland's capital.
