You will experience Iceland‘s landmark attractions in one incredible day: the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, the exploding hot springs of Geysir, and Þingvellir national park, site of the Viking parliament and over 1000 years of history. Overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 3  : Snæfellsnes Peninsula

Today we drive from Reykjavík via Borgarfjörður to Snæfellsnes peninsula and Snæfellsjökull National Park. Continue on to the romantic little fishing villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, both famous for their rock formations in the shapes of arches, caves, sea stacks and cliffs alive with huge colonies of birds. Continue your journey around Snæfellsnesjökull glacier, through the small fishing villages on the northern shores of the peninsula. Overnight in Stykkishólmur.

Day 4  : Flatley Island

We'll take the ferry to the charming Flatey island located in Breidafjordur bay on the northwestern part of Iceland. The island is about two km long and one km wide and is quite flat hence is the name 'Flatey'. It is the largest island among an archipelago of about forty other small islands. Cars are not allowed on the ferry so you will explore the island on foot, walking the only road from the ferry dock throught the so-called village consisting of several beautiful old houses, one hotel and restaurant.The atmosphere in Flatey is very relaxed. Enjoy the wild birdlife which is in abundance there, mostly migratory birds like puffins and or the arctic terns and more.  Return to the main island and overnight in the Westfjords area.

Day 5  : Westfjords

West Fjords are a stunning, remote part of Iceland. The mountains are high and steep, and the roads are narrow. This is the place to go if you want to explore Iceland undisturbed. The area is so vast even though there are some people in your way, you can easily escape them. The view is amazing in so many places. You can easily find piles of snow in the mountains in June, and there are small rivers and beautiful waterfall in many places, many of them not even marked in any guide book. It’s also the area that holds the biggest number of natural geothermal pools in Iceland. Many of them only locals know about, so you will appreciate having a local guide with you. Overnight in Westfjords.

Day 6  : Ísafjörður

We'll head north today towards Ísafjörður, where we'll spend the night. Ísafjörður is the capital of the West Fjords, rammed in by high mountains and beautiful nature. It’s also popular destination for skiing holidays in winters. Ísafjörður is an old trading post which was built up further around salt fish production in the 19th century. Fisheries are still an important part of this lively town, which is still delightfully small and intimate for its grand title. 

Day 7  : Drive to Reykjavik

Today we will return from Ísafjörður to Reykjavik. The drive is approximately 5.5 hours, you will take frequent stops to take photos and have lunch in picturesques places. Overnight in Reykjavik.

 

Day 8  : Reykjavik

Free day in the capital. Overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 9  :

Private airport transfer via Blue Lagoon. (If it fits you schedule better you can go to the lagoon on the first day)
