Glaciers, geysers and geothermal hot springs
A living example of nature’s true power – thundering waterfalls, mighty glaciers, black sand beaches, and hot springs make this land of fire and ice an unforgettable experience. Discover the stunning landscapes and natural wonders in this land of geological wonder.
Day 1: Reykjavik
As Icelanders say, Halló og velkomin til Íslands! Reykjavik is the northernmost capital of the world and the gateway city to adventure. Upon arrival, the city is yours to explore. Your Local Leader and fellow travelers await you later for dinner. (d)
Day 2: Reykjavik > Hvolsvöllur
Today, explore the world-famous Golden Circle. Begin in Thingvellir National Park, home to the oldest active parliament in the world — and the meeting place of two tectonic plates. En route to the famed Geysir, we stop at a geothermal bakery for a unique culinary experience. Take in the stunning Strokkur geyser and Old geyser; our last stop is the iconic Golden Waterfall, Gullfoss. Our home tonight is an eco-farmhouse in the town of Hveragerdi. (b)
Day 3: Hvolsvöllur
The Westman Islands are home to an awe- inspiring landscape of volcanoes, lava and windswept cliffs. We journey there by ferry, getting to know the history and the locals. To complete our experience, we visit the Eldheimar Museum before returning to the mainland. We enjoy dinner at our farmhouse accommodation tonight. (b, d)
Day 4: Hvolsvöllur > Skaftafell
Visit the stunning Skogafoss waterfall, where you can journey up a nearby staircase for some breathtaking views. Enjoy the unique landscape of Reynisfjara before we travel onwards to Skaftafell National Park — followed by a cruise between the jagged icebergs in the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Our home tonight is located at the edge of Vatnajokull glacier. (b)
Day 5: Skaftafell > Vik
Discover one of Iceland’s best kept secrets: Þakgil. This small enclosed canyon is sheltered by steep, moss-covered vertical mountains. We embark on a hike to discover this ruggedly beautiful part of Iceland. The remainder of the day is yours. (b)
Day 6: Vik > Reykjavik
Today, you can rise early and enjoy a low- impact hike to an abandoned U.S. Navy plane wreck from 1973, where it ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach at Sólheimasandur. We then return to Reykjavik, stopping along the way at a sheep farm and wool tannery. We also visit a horse farm, where you can learn more about the Icelandic horses. Once back in Reykjavik, enjoy the final night of your Icelandic adventure. (b)
Day 7: Reykjavik
Our adventure ends today in Reykjavik. (b)
