Trip highlights

Quirky designs and a wild nightlife: Reykjavik
Highlight #1
Quirky designs and a wild nightlife: Reykjavik
The world’s northernmost capital is small but packs in everything - the quirkiest buildings (so colourful), jam-packed parties or quiet boozers -all within easy reach.
Þingvellir National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
Highlight #2
Þingvellir National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
In Iceland’s oldest national park, you’ll find scenic splendor around every bend. It’s no wonder that it was a filming location for ‘Game Of Thrones’.
Iceland’s most instagrammable spot : Seljalandsfoss
Highlight #3

Rainbows forming through mist clouds and a rare perspective of a waterfall - from within; there’s no better place to capture memories than Seljalandsfoss!
Myvatn looks bizarre and wonderful!
Highlight #4
Myvatn looks bizarre and wonderful!
Otherworldly terrain, weird lava formations and a beautiful sapphire blue lake in its midst - Myvatn truly looks alien.

Itinerary

ARRIVE IN REYKJAVÍK, ICELAND

Check in at your hotel may not be possible until the afternoon. You will however be able to leave your luggage at the hotel and spend the rest of your day exploring Reykjavik. Your Tour Director will be happy to assist with some suggestions.

REYKJAVÍK–SNÆFELLSNES–ARNARSTAPI–SNÆFELLSNES PENINSULA

Rich fertile farmland and rugged cliffs greet you on your morning drive along the beautiful coastal road to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. See the SNÆFELLSJÖKULL VOLCANO, which can be spotted from Reykjavík on clear days, as well as the glacier that covers its summit. More than 4,700 feet (1446 meters) in elevation, the mountain gained notoriety as setting for Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. Arrive in the small fishing village of Arnarstapi and walk around the harbor area to enjoy the fresh sea air and watch the antics of circling birds. Later, arrive at the dramatic black-pebble Djúpalónssandur beach, where four lifting stones ranging from 50 to 340 pounds were once used to qualify men for work on fishing boats. Spend the night in the quaint Snaefellsnes area.

SNÆFELLSNES PENINSULA–EIRÍKSSTAÐIR–AKUREYRI

Iceland’s natural beauty unfolds as you drive through green pastures and meandering lava flows that have formed over the centuries. Via the colorful harbor town of Stykkishólmur, U.S. Marine landing site in the novel Red Storm Rising, reach the Haukadalur valley, home to some of the country’s most famous geothermal features. At Eiríksstaðir, visit a replica of Norwegian Viking ERIK THE RED'S ANCIENT SOD-ROOFED HOMESTEAD, where his son Leifur Eiríksson (explorer Leif Erikson) was born. This afternoon, head into Skagafjörður, the renowned “Valley of Horses” and one of Iceland’s most prosperous agricultural regions. Overnight in Akureyri, the “Capital of North Iceland.”

AKUREYRI. EXCURSION TO GOÐAFOSS & MÝVATN

First stop this morning is at GOÐAFOSS, the “Waterfall of the Gods.” Then, follow the shores of Mývatn Lake for vistas of the splendid volcano, peaceful wetlands, and abundant wildlife. Later, stop at Skútustaðir to see the intriguing volcanic pseudo-craters; DIMMUBORGIR, the “Catacombs of Hell,” with its bubbling mud pools, volcanic caves and lava tubes, and unusual rock formations; and the Krafla caldera with its ochre-colored glow of subterranean lava. Relax in the mineral-rich waters at the MÝVATN NATURE BATHS before returning to Akureyri for another overnight.

AKUREYRI–REYKHOLT

Today features an introduction to the spectacular geothermal hot springs at DEILDARTUNGUHVER. Here, you’ll find clusters of emerald-green deer ferns growing, a plant that grows nowhere else in the country. Next up is the tiny hamlet of Reykholt, former home of medieval Icelandic poet, historian, and politician Snorri Sturluson. Then, see the fascinating series of waterfalls at Hraunfossar before enjoying a stroll along the riverbanks to the BARNAFOSS waterfall, where the glacial cascade has carved out rock formations.

REYKHOLT–ÞINGVELLIR–GEYSIR–GULLFOSS–REYKJAVÍK

Some of Iceland’s most spectacular sights are on the agenda today as you visit ÞINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK, a rift valley and boundary between the North American and Eurasian continental plates. See geysers as they erupt from the earth’s geothermal vents, and later, see the famed GULLFOSS waterfall before heading back to Reykjavík.

REYKJAVÍK. EXCURSION TO THE SOUTH SHORE

Explore the South Shore today, and have your cameras ready for the awe-inspiriing SELJALANDSFOSS and SKÓGAFOSS waterfalls. Then, visit the tiny settlement of Skógar to admire turf farmhouses, a pioneer-era hydroelectric plant, and examples of many periods of Icelandic architectural history at the SKÓGAR FOLK MUSEUM. On to Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland, to see its black-basalt beach, counted as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches on Earth in Islands Magazine. The cliffs here are home to a large seabird population, including puffins. Finally, marvel at the Sólheimajökull glacier before enjoying a stop in the village of EYRARBAKKI.
