Itinerary:

Unforgettable Trip to Iceland 

On this trip to Iceland, you will have the opportunity to explore icebergs, hot springs, and volcanoes as they are plentiful in Iceland and are the main focus of this escorted Iceland tour. Join our group and discover how Nature's forces are shaping the world in its most primal state. Lava fields, volcanoes, and the history of Icelandic eruptions will surprise you while accompanying you on your holiday through this magical country.

 

Day 1  : Arrival

Your Iceland tour begins with stay in Reykjavík. If your flight lands early in the day we recommend taking the time to explore Reykjavík, the largest municipality in Iceland. Ingolfur Arnarson, the first settler of Iceland built his farm on the peninsula where Reykjavík stands today. The town got its name “Smoky Bay” after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area and made such a deep impression on the first settlers. In the evening you can choose from multitude of restaurants and/or coffee-houses to get better acquainted with Iceland's capital.
Overnight stay in Reykjavík (airport transfer not included). 

Day 2  : Westmann Islands (111 mi)

Waterfall - Lava Fields – Puffin Island – Magnificent lava fields

The first stop today will be made at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the waterfall. We then travel along the south coast to Landeyjahofn harbor. After arriving at the pier at Bakkafjara we take a 30 minute ferry ride to the Westman Islands. Once there, we will explore Heimaey, the largest island in the Westman Islands archipelago. Other adventures of the day include: a visit to the puffins in Storhofdi, a walk up to the crater of a volcano that erupted only three decades ago, visiting Eldheimar Museum and exploring flora of the new lava field. Afternoon at leisure to explore the island on your own. Overnight in the Westman Islands

Day 3  : South Shore - Skógar – Vík (75 mi)

Powerful Volcanoes – Folk Museum – Black sand beaches

Breakfast at your hotel. Take the ferry back from the Westman Islands and travel further on along the south coast. Pass numerous glacial rivers en route to Skogafoss waterfall. A famous folk museum is nearby, showcasing the buildings and daily life of Icelanders in the past centuries. Continue on to the black sands of Reynisfjara beach. Here you can witness the powerful waves and amazing basalt column features carved by the power of the sea. Dinner and overnight stay in Vik area for the next 2 nights.

 

Day 4  : Kirkjubæjarklaustur - Skaftafell – Jökulsárlón (250 mi)

Europe’s Largest National Park and Glacier – Glacial Lagoon with Icebergs

We cross Eldhraun, the largest mass of lava ever to flow on the face of the Earth before reaching the small town Kirkjubaejarklaustur, a former site of a 12th-century Catholic convent. Onwards to Skaftafell National Park, one of Iceland's most outstanding areas of natural beauty. We continue to the stunning Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon to see floating icebergs and possibly curious seals. Throughout the day we enjoy magnificent views of the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier. Back to Vík. Dinner and overnight in Vik/Kirkjubaejarklaustur area.

Afterwards, head for the Geysir hot spring area to see the famous great Geysir as well as Strokkur, a hot spring that spouts every few minutes. Travel onwards to Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most impressive waterfalls. The next stop is Thingvellir National Park, where the Viking-age parliament met for centuries on the shores of Iceland’s largest lake. This is also where you can see the meeting point for the European and North American tectonic plates. After some time to explore Thingvellir, head back to Reykjavik. Overnight stay in Reykjavík.
