Arrival in Reykjavik
Take the airport shuttle to the centrally located hotel and explore the neighbourhood. Overnight in Reykjavik.
Volcano, Fjords & Mountains
Climb the Grábrók volcano crater. Visit a natural history museum in a small fishing village and stroll around the harbour. Stop at the church of Víðimýri, considered one of the purest and most beautiful examples of traditional Icelandic architecture. Drive through scenic fjord landscape and several mountain passes to Akureyri, the capital of North Iceland. Overnight in Akureyri.
Town, gardens, fjords, waterfalls & lava
Explore the charming town of Akureyri for its botanical garden, old world charm and panoramic view over Eyjafjörður fjord. Then on to the Goðafoss, the waterfall of the Gods and Lake Mývatn which is known for its geological wonders and active summer bird life. Then walk around the strange lava formations at Kálfaströnd. End the day with a relaxing soak in the waters that are a unique blend of minerals, silicates, and geothermal micro-organisms at Mývatn Nature Baths. Overnight in Mývatn.
Lava labyrinths and hot springs
Hike in the lava labyrinth at the “dark castles” of Dimmuborgir, hoping to get a glimpse of the trolls who are said to live there. Visit the hot spring area of Námaskarð with bubbling mud pools and steaming solfataras. Drive through the highlands and moon-scapes where you may spot an Arctic fox or reindeer. From June to August we can take a detour to Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall in the Vatnajökull National Park. Overnight in Borgarfjörður-Eystri.
Fjords, glaciers & ice
Take in the fjord landscape as we drive through winding roads with its tiny fishing villages. Soak in the magnificent Vatnajökull glacier and the glacial lagoon of Jökulsárlón that is filled with floating icebergs. Spend time exploring the region and its black sandy beach, where often large icebergs get stranded – you may even spot seals swimming in the Arctic waters. Overnight in Höfn.
Lava fields, beaches & waterfalls
Head across the Eldhraun lava field, cross the sandy desert overlooked by rugged cliffs, glaciers and waterfalls to reach the famous Reynisfjara shore – the most impressive black sand and pebble beach in Iceland. Check out the basalt cliff resembling a rocky step pyramid and the spectacularly shaped basalt sea stacks of Reynisdrangar. Look out for the massive Skógafoss waterfall before heading to the Eyjafjallajökull Information Center. Then on to witness the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall plunging over the mountain – you could go on an interesting trail that goes behind the fall, if you are prepared to get wet! Overnight at Eyjafjallajökull.
The Golden Circle
Explore the classic route of the Golden Circle – Friðheimar with the Icelandic horse, the Geysir geothermal fields with its hot springs/ bubbling pools, Gullfoss the double waterfall and the Thingvellir National Park that is part of a fissure zone situated on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Head back to Reykjavík, for a short tour of the highlights of the world’s northernmost capital. Overnight in Reykjavík.
Take the airport shuttle bus to the Airport and your flight back.
