About The Event

We create fully personalized trips from start to finish. From locations to accommodation and guides, everything is selected to suit you.

Highlights:

Day 1: WELCOME TO ICELAND

On arrival to Keflavik International Airport, we will be greeted by a professional driver who offer

many possibilities to explore amazing place in Iceland. First stop buffet breakfast at the Hotel Keflavik. After Breakfast we are off to the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. The Lagoon is located in a lava field in Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula. One of 25 wonders of the world, Blue Lagoon Iceland is a place where the powers of geothermal seawater create transformational journeys. We have the Premium package that will includes: a Bathrobe, slippers, locker, towel and a beverage. Please bring you Bathing suit! After spending time and relaxing at the Blue Lagoon we are off for a Tour of the “Reykjanes peninsula” Reykjanes Peninsula is perhaps one of the most underrated places in Iceland. It’s the home of Keflavik International Airport, and most tourists drive straight from there to Reykjavik without so much as a stop for a look around, aside for a visit to the Blue Lagoon. They don’t know what they’re missing! The landscape at the peninsula is rough and a bit alien looking. There isn’t all that much grass, instead there are great lava fields covered in moss. There are old craters, fissures and bubbling, geothermal mud pools. By the sea there are many places with amazing rock formations, most of them very dark grey. They are particularly spectacular when the wind is blowing and the sea violently hammers upon the rocks, wave after wave. In addition to the beautiful landscape the culture is interesting. Most of the towns were built up around fisheries, and Icelanders from all over the island came there for work. Next Check in at the comfortable Centerhotel Midgardur, offers a bright accommodation in the heart of Reykjavik.

Day 2 GOLDEN CIRCLE TOUR

We will be hitting multiple popular sights, as we venture outside Reykjavik. Departing from the city, Golden Circle tours showcase a number of Iceland’s main attractions and natural wonders—think geysers, waterfalls, lava fields, volcanic craters, and Icelandic horses. There are few other places in Europe where you can see so much topographical variety on day tour. 8 hrs Tour

Day 3 South Shore Adventure

A scenic day tour along the south coast of Iceland. Visiting the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss and more. This tour is ideal for nature lovers of all kinds. Our Tour Bus will pick you up 9 am before we leave the city of Reykjavik and descend Heillisheiði plateau. After crossing the city of Hveragerði with its greenhouses we´ll take you along the south coast of Iceland, one of the country´s most scenic regions, as far as Vík, a charming village surrounded by high beautiful bird cliffs and black sandy beaches .

Skógafoss : This waterfall in South Iceland is one of the biggest waterfall in Iceland, measuring 25 meters wide and approximately 60 meters deep. With so much water flowing down, you will usually be able to see a single or even a double rainbow in front of Skógafoss on sunny days. If you have enough time you can take the stairs to the top of the waterfall and enjoy a great view. The river Skógá (‘forrest river’) plunges down the former coastline. At the bottom you will find the village Skógar with a popular museum that exhibits Iceland’s past.

Reynisfjara: Near Vik you will experience the black beach Reynisfjara. Please be careful when wandering on the beach since the currents can be strong due to the fact that it is the open ocean. By the beach you find the restaurant “black beach” which since it opened a few years ago has become increasingly popular.

Seljalandsfoss : The river Seljalandsá which originates in the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier plunges down about 60 meters. What makes this waterfall really special, however, is that you are able to walk behind it. Just remember to bring good shoes and a waterproof jacket, you might get wet! The ground behind the waterfall is not paved and uneven so please always be careful. on the way home we will we reach Sólheimajökull glacier, a glacier tongue belonging to Myrdalsjökull glacier. Reaching south Iceland’s Sólheimajökull glacier is easy while explaining the intricacies of the blue ice, crevasses and incredible ice formations. This is about a 10-hr tour.

Day 4: The Guided Tour into the Underworld

Vatnshellir Cave Tour : The Colourful Vatnshellir Lava Cave on Snæfellsnes in West-Iceland & its Beautiful Lava Formations. Vatnshellir cave is said to be the most accessible cave in Iceland. Vatnshellir cave is located almost by the road. I love the entrance to the cave, it looks like you are going into a time machine. A guide will then take you down into the cave through a winding staircase. Hiking shoes are the best shoes to wear because of the uneven surface. It is advisable to wear gloves as it will prevent you from abrading your hands on the harsh lava. You need to where your Jacket, because it cool. We followed the guide through the 200 meters long lava tube in the path of the lava flow. The caves reach down 35 meters below the surface!

Day 5 Choose Your Own Adventure Day: Surrounded by magnificent landscapes and composed of vibrant streets of booming culture, the world’s northernmost capital is home to a host of many travel options for you to choose from.
