Join us for a summer escape to the land of ice and fire in the middle of the North Atlantic. We will take you out to see the most famous sights around the Golden Circle and the South Coast of Iceland. To get you into the holiday mood, stop at the Blue Lagoon for a soak in the warm healing waters on the way into Reykjavik.
Day 1 – Arrive Reykjavik and visit Blue Lagoon
Arrive into Reykjavik and take the shuttle to the Blue Lagoon. Your flights generally arrives early in the morning so this is a nice way to refresh and relax before your check in time in Reykjavik. Your luggage will be stored for you when you are within the Blue Lagoon complex.
Afterwards, continue into Reykjavik. The afternoon and evening is yours to explore this compact city. Be sure to check out the new Harp Opera house on the harbour. Approximately 1 hour from the airport.
Visit the new Aurora Reykjavik Museum in the heart of downtown – it opened May 2013. It is Iceland’s first educational and recreational Northern Lights Center where multimedia is used to explain when, why and how the Northern Lights work, with the highlights being large HD projection of the Aurora’s.
Day 2 – Round trip day tour visiting the Geysir Hot Spring, Strokkur Hot Spring, Gullfoss Waterfall, Þingvellir National Park and Iceland’s settlement history
Day tour to the Golden Circle and Southern Iceland region. You will be picked up by small bus from your hotel – Þingvellir National Park, home of Iceland’s ancient Viking parliament and listed as a UNESCO’s World Heritage site will be our first stop. There you will take a walk to experience firsthand the geological phenomenon that is the Mid-Atlantic ridge.
From Þingvellir you will head east over Lyngdalsheiði following a mountain road with great views of the rugged lava fields, passing Laugarvatn lake. You arrive at Haukadalur, home of the great Geysir and the reliable Strokkur geyser that erupts with 3 to 7 minutes intervals. Next the magnificent Gullfoss awaits us as it comes cascading down the white colored Hvítá river.
Day 3 – Round Trip day tour to see Skógafoss Waterfall, Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Eyjafjallajökull Glacier View, Reynisfjara Black Beach, Sólheimajökull Glacier View and Vik
An early start to travel to the south coast of Iceland with its black beaches, picturesque waterfalls and magnificent glaciers. On our way you will witness the many sides of Icelandic nature and culture. Skógafoss Waterfall, Reynisfjara Beach, Sólaheimasandur Glacier view and Vík Village are among highlights. Farms, small villages, horses grazing amidst Glaciers, active geothermal areas, black sand deserts and terrific cliffs will capture your eye and provide endless photo opportunities. You will arrive back in Reykjavík early in the evening, giving you plenty of time to explore the downtown area, with its museums, cafés and shops, before dinner.
Be sure to carry warm clothing, rain gear, good shoes, bathing suit and towel. During the tour we break for refreshments at a local restaurant or café. Maximum number on your day tour: 16 people
Day 4 – Reykjavik – optional activities such as ‘Inside the Volcano’ tour or a visit to the Secret Lagoon
Today is a free day in Reykjavik, an easy city to explore on foot or bike. Feel the fresh air on your face with a visit the harbour and perhaps enjoy a food tour of this small capital. If you’re interested in experiencing the city’s thriving coffee culture, head to the main street, Laugavegur, to enjoy its various shops and cosy cafes.
