Day 1 : Keflavik - Reykjavik

Arrive at Keflavik International airport and take a shuttle bus to the Blue Lagoon.

Day 2 : Reykjavik - Flúðir

Today star sightseeing adventure around the famous sites of the Golden Circle.

You will be picked up from Reykjavík in a minibus and taken to a stable in the countryside where you will meet and ride the Icelandic horse.

Later, make your way to Þingvellir National Park. It is famous due to its geology and history. The edges of North American and Eurasian tectonic plates loom over the sides of the park, and as they pull apart, they tear open ravines that fill with spring water.

Then move on to Haukadalur Valley, famed for its geysers. The largest of these, Geysir and its neighbour Strokkur erupts every five to ten minutes to heights that can exceed over twenty metres. The valley is filled with other hot springs, as well as fumaroles and mud pots.

Lastly, visit the majestic Gullfoss waterfall. This waterfall, which is within the Hvítá glacier river, falls in two tiers with incredible power into an ancient canyon. If rays of sun hit the spray coming from the waterfall, it creates some beautiful rainbows.

Day 3 : Flúðir - Vik

Today, head across the beautiful South Coast of Iceland.

First visit the two of the most famous waterfalls in the country, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Both these waterfalls fall from over sixty metres high, from cliffs that marked Iceland’s coast during the last ice age. Other than that, Seljalandsfoss is unique in the sense that the cliff behind it is concave; it is possible to fully encircle the water for some great perspectives when conditions allow. Skógafoss, meanwhile, is much more powerful and classic in its form.

The next stop is Sólheimajökull. This magnificent ice cap is vast and beautifully coloured, blending white snow, blue ice and black ash. Enjoy a glacier hiking tour here and explore the otherworldly landscapes atop one of Iceland’s glaciers.

As evening rolls around, reach Reynisfjara, a beautiful stretch of black-sand beach, renowned for its geology. See the Dyrhólaey rock arch curving into the ocean, and the Reynisdrangar sea stacks towering from the water’s surface.

Remember to look up to the sky tonight for a chance to see the brilliant Northern Lights.

Accommodation in Vik

Day 4 : Vik - Hofn

Today head far side of the South Coast, crossing the dramatic Mælifellssandur black-sand desert as you do. Your main destination for today is the unbelievable Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, one of the most renowned and beautiful places in Iceland’s nature.

Walk along the shores of this vast lake and witness as enormous icebergs, which have broken from a receding glacier tongue, slowly move towards the ocean. Nearby is the Diamond Beach, a black sand beach where icebergs from the lagoon have washed up on shore and glisten in the sun. The lagoon and beach are also famous for being home to many seals.

You will also explore an ice cave in Vatnajökull National Park. Ice caves are spectacular natural phenomena that only occur under very specific conditions, in very few places on earth.

Today, navigate your way north through the incredible Eastfjords.

This little-travelled route is incredibly beautiful; you can expect to be driven over dramatic peaks and along breath-taking coastlines. The Eastfjords have the highest abundance of wildlife in Iceland, it is the only place in the country where you can see herds of wild reindeer. Your guide will arrange the day to best display the natural beauty of the area, and share with you some hidden gems and favourite locations. Pass through Iceland’s largest forest, Hallormsstaðaskógur, and by the lake Lagarfljót, said to hold a terrifying wyrm.

Day 6 : Egilsstaðir – Akureyri

Today drive to Iceland’s dramatic North. This route will take you through the northern part of the Vatnajökull National Park, and Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull.

Your first destination is the incredible Lake Mývatn area. This region boasts a diverse array of incredible scenery. see the Dimmuborgir lava fortress, the geothermal areas at the Námaskarð Pass, and the strange geological formations that rise from the surface of Lake Mývatn itself, spending a good amount of time exploring and photographing the sites.

Take a dip in the warm and mineral-rich waters of Mývatn Nature Baths today, and rid your body of any aches and kinks days of travelling and adventure might have built up. This is a sister site to the famous Blue Lagoon, though its location makes it much less crowded, making it an ideal place for relaxation. 

In the evening, pass through the beautiful Goðafoss waterfall. if you are lucky, and the weather has been cool enough, you might even see it all dressed up and bound in ice and snow, with the water flowing from under the frozen layers forming on the stream.

Day 7 : Akureyri - Borganes

Today, explore Iceland's northern landscapes, before heading down south.

Start by heading to Eyjafjörður, the agricultural heartland of the North. Travel around this beautiful fjord, exploring its many farmlands and sweeping mountainscapes. At the lovely town of Hauganes, enjoy a more relaxing morning at the beer spa at the local brewery.

Your guide will then take you to the oddly looking rock formation, Hvítserkur, where you can snap a few photos of this massive monolith and decide for yourself whether it looks more like a dragon or an elephant. 

You will then start making your way to your accommodations in the Borgarnes region. The journey might take some time, but you will be rewarded with incredible scenery en route. You will also make a few stops for refreshments and to visit hidden gems only your local guide knows about.

In the evening, hope for the Northern Lights to pay you a visit as you unwind in the hotel's hot tub.

Day 8 : Borgarnes

Today, visit west Iceland.

First stop is at the steaming, bubbling hot spring, Deildartunguhver. This is Europe’s most powerful hot spring, and it provides heat for the nearby Akranes and Borgarnes towns. The steam which Deildartunguhver emits surrounds the area, making the scene seem like it was plucked straight from a sci-fi movie.

Next up are two stunning waterfalls, Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. The former trickles down from a dark lava field in a series of small rivulets while the latter runs wild and violently through a jagged gorge. From there, head to Reykholt, one of the most important historical towns in Iceland. Reykholt was once home to the legendary writer, historian and chieftain, Snorri Sturluson Norse.

Day 9 : Borgarnes - Reykjavik

Today, explore the Snaefellnes Peninsula.

First visit the cliffs of Gerðuberg. These cliffs are made up of countless, hexagonal basalt columns which form a wall that is reminiscent of a medieval fortress. From there, head to Ytri-Tunga beach to see if you can’t spot a few seals lounging on the white sand.

Next, venture further down a 90 kilometre stretch of coast, often called ‘Iceland in Miniature’. Visit the picturesque village of Arnarstapi where you will have a fantastic view of the ocean, surrounding cliffs and abundant birdlife. Then visit Djúpalónssandur black beach and see impressive rock formations tower over the waters and echoes of long-gone eras are felt in every rock and tree. The glacier and volcano Snæfellsjökull crowns the peninsula.This feature was made famous by the novel ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ by Jules Verne.

Enjoy the journey beneath the Earth today as you visit the lava tunnels of Vatnshellir Cave. Descend down a 200-metre staircase into the lava tunnels where strange rock formations and glittering walls will greet you.
