  • We also have programmed stops along the way for snacks, lunches and restroom facilities to ensure your complete comfort. Many of the lunch stops we make are selected because they offer gorgeous views.

You'll get the opportunity to see the divide of the tectonic plates between North America and Eurasia and to commemorate such a momentous occasion, we've prepared a certificate to bestow on you.
  • 2nd Stop: The Great Geysir, not to be confused with 'a geyser' was the first of its kind to receive a name. Coming from the Icelandic word for 'to gush', Europeans continued to name all other hot springs 'geysers' from this time on. While the Great Geysir is for the most part dormant, only 50 meters away, its little brother Strokkur, runs like clockwork and erupts every 6-9 minutes in an incredible burst of hot water. During this spectacle, let’s raise our glasses to Geysir and ourselves with a shot of Brennivin, the traditional Icelandic spirit.
  • 3rd Stop: Gullfoss or the Golden Waterfall offers a wonderful view of the sheer power and grace of flowing water as it passes down 3 steps and then 2 drops for a total of 32 meters from top to bottom making it one of the most famous and one of the largest in Iceland.
  • 4th Stop: Kerið Crater Lake is a famous volcanic crater lake, with several steep walls, allowing for a dramatic view upon arriving to the summit. We will walk around the top of the crater as well as descend to the lake before for a closer look. The entrance to the crater is included.

  • 3rd Stop: Eyjafjallajökull for a short stop to see both a glacier and volcano in one view, hence Iceland's name of the "Land of Ice and Fire". You may remember this difficult to pronounce name from 2010 when its eruption caused such chaos in Europe and the world.
  • 4th Stop: Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, which gives you two great opportunities, one of which is to walk around this magnificent waterfall to the cave behind the water curtain, and the second, which many people do not know about, is to visit the secret and hidden Gljúfrabúi Waterfall or "Secret Waterfall".
  • 5th Stop: Skógafoss Waterfall where you can hike a short but steep staircase to the top and admire the breathtaking view from 60 meters above the pool below.
  • 6th Stop: Dyrhólaey Beaches and the surroundings cliffs which are populated by puffins in the summer months, so September will be just enough time to spot them and anytime of year you'll be able to gaze at the mighty stone arch rising out of the sea.
  • 7th Stop: Vík is a quiant coastal town, with a lovely red-roofed church which gives great views towards the west and where you can walk one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, as it was voted several years ago. There we will treat you to a local specialty, ice cream with chocolate.

   DAY 4: SKAFTAFELL NATIONAL PARK - VATNAJOKULL GLACIER - ICEBERG LAGOON - EAST FJORDS

  • Buffet breakfast at the hotel.
  • 1st Stop: Vatnajökull Glacier, the largest ice cap in Europe still leaves us with chills, and not for the weather. Pictures can't describe it, and neither can words, so come find out for yourself. 
  • 2nd Stop: Svartifoss Waterfall where we'll stretch our legs with a short hike, suitable for all ages, where you can can watch the water of the falls pour down over black, basalt columns.
  • 3rd Stop: Jökulsárlón Lagoon, is a lagoon full of icebergs which dance around each other creating a beautiful theatrical piece. From there, you can also see Diamond Beach, thus named for the glittery and sparkle that is created when some of the dancing icebergs run ashore on the black sand beach.

  • Buffet breakfast at the hotel. 
  • 1st Stop: we'll travel along the ancient scenic Mödrudalur route to a traditional farmhouse where the roofs are covered with a vibrant green grass. This is the best place on the trip to see Arctic foxes, so have a look around. Before we do, we'll enjoy a tasty snack from the farmhouse, compliments of us ;) 
  • 2nd Stop: The mighty Dettifoss Waterfall is the strongest falls in Europe. The air is full of mist because of the strength and power of the crashing water. 
  • 3rd Stop: Ásbyrgi, also known as the Canyon of the Gods, is a mythical place, full of legends of elves and 'hidden people' who occupy this land still till this day. 
  • 4th Stop: Húsavík is a rustic fishing village on the northern coast and the best place to book a whale watching tour as you'll have a 97-99% chance of seeing these giant mammals while out on your excursion. The town is absolutely lovely and deserves a wander. And whether or not you decide to take a whale watching tour, you'll have time to meander around and admire the local buildings, small streets and quaint shops. If you're the seafood type, go for the day's catch at a local restaurant for lunch or check out one of the unique geothermal spas (we always suggest booking the whale watching tours as soon as possible as they can fill up).
  • Northern Lights: Here's your second chance to view the magnificent natural phenomenon. Go out with our guide and see what Mother Nature can paint on the night's sky.  
  • Dinner and accommodation in the area of Húsavík in a beautiful, country, eco-friendly 3-4* hotel.

 DAY 6: MÝVATN LAKE - KRAFLA VOLCANO - GODAFOSS - AKUREYRI

  • Buffet breakfast at the hotel.
  • Most of the day will be spent in and around the Mývatn Lake area.  
  • 1st Stop: Krafla-Leirhnjúkur Volcano which gives a great view where the 1984 eruption occurred and the aftermath.
  • 2nd Stop: the grand Vítí Crater Lake which presents amazing views of the blue water that has been collecting in the crater since its formation in a 1724 eruption.
  • 3rd Stop: the geothermal zone of Námafjall is a bit out of this world. The earth beneath your feet is so hot that there are pools of boiling mud and you can see hundreds of fumaroles, where steaming hot vapors spew from the ground beneath. We will be able to walk around and among these parts, but we do advise caution! The visual effect is impressive but the geothermal field has to be treated with precaution.
  • 4th Stop: Reykjahlíð for some rest and lunch. This town was once destroyed by lava in the 18th century, all except for the local church which was miraculously saved as the local parish priest and devote followers prayed inside. The approaching lava simply surrounded the church without touching it.
  • 5th Stop: Dimmuborgir, or the Black Fortress, is an enchanting place, best known for the unique black lava fields that span in all directions. The fossilized lava has formed into unique shapes and figures and created caverns as well. There is also a view of Hverfjall Crater that stretches 1 kilometer in diameter!
  • 6th Stop: the Skútustadir pseudocraters are called so because they look like actual craters but as they are not in the actual location of an eruption, they can't claim to be the real thing. The view is spectacular because there is a clash of colors as the bright green grass runs smack up to the edges of the blue lakes within the craters. 
  • 7th Stop: the “Waterfall of the gods” or Goðafoss Waterfall resembles a small Niagara Falls as the width is more impressive than the height. 
  • 8th Stop: the northern capital of Iceland is Akureyri, also known as the "Pearl of the North" is found at the base of the Eyjafjörður Fjord. The charming city has an impressive backdrop of snow-capped mountains. The central location of this night's hotel allows for you and your travel companions to go out and meet some locals in the heart of Akureyri. Nothing is a far walk in this town.  
  • Dinner and accommodation in the center of Akureyri in a 3* hotel.  

 DAY 7: GLAUMBAER - HRAUNFOSSAR - REYKHOLT - REYKJAVÍK

  • Buffet breakfast at the hotel.
  • 1st Stop: Glaumbær, a small historical town. Here the properly named 'turf cottages' are covered in bright green grass. As your entrance to the Glaumbær Folkloric Museum is included, we highly recommend having a peek inside to see what life was like for ancient Icelandic people.
  • 2nd Stop: Lunch break at a famous gas station. Despite the perception, this gas station is well known for wonderful lunches and while you're eating, you'll get the chance to learn of local life in this area.
  • 3rd Stop: Deildartunguhver hot springs, is less known but no less impressive than the Geyser geothermal zone. It is a true hidden gem that competes with Geyser in the strength and temperature of the erupting water.
  • 4th Stop: Hraunfossar Waterfall offers a different type of falls. Here the water is a bit more lazy. For nearly a kilometer, the water flows and runs over lava fields and gives a sense of tranquility and calm to the air.
  • 5th Stop: Reykholt was at one time the home to Snori Sturluson, a medieval writer who was one of the most famous during his time and whose contributions to the Norse language and mythology are still aiding scholars today. This enchanting town also once held the most important school in Iceland. There is an impressive view of Langjökull Glacier which is the second largest ice cap in Iceland.
  • 6th Stop: (or more like a pass through) is the tunnel of Hvalfjörður. Both locals and tourists have been enjoying this army construction for the last few decades as it shortened the commute time to Reykjavík by nearly an hour. Before entering the capital, we can enjoy a view of Esja Mountain. As the journey on the bus is coming to an end, we always suggest sitting back and contemplating all of the utterly amazing places you have visited since arriving in Iceland.
  • 7th Stop: What better way to say good-bye to Iceland and all of your new travel companions than with a farewell dinner on your final night in Reykjavík at the best seafood, fish and meat restaurant in town. It’s a delicious-all-you-can-eat buffet that lets you taste all of the local delicacies. Icelandic glacier water, coffee tea and dessert are included.
  • Night and accommodation in the center of Reykjavík at a 3* hotel in the center next to the amazing Hallgrímskirkja Church.

   DAY 8: REYKJAVÍK - GUIDED TOUR - PERLAN MUSEUM

  • Buffet breakfast at the hotel.
  • For those who didn't get to participate the first day, the guided walking tour of the capital city, Reykjavík, is available again. 
  • Once the guided tour is over (or if you took it once already) you'll have time to explore the city streets, the shops, cafes, seaport and docks. 
  • You may also choose to buy a ticket for the Hop-on-hop-off bus as well. This comes with an audio guide in 10 languages and entrance to the Perlan Museum, where you can see the best views of the city. Entrance to Perlan, its ice cave and fascinating Aurora Show is included.
  • Or if you are looking for a more luxurious and relaxing way to end the trip, why not head to Iceland's most popular destination, the Blue Lagoon? It's the perfect treat for you and your loved ones. These geothermal heated waters will soothe your muscles and rejuvenate your skin. We will be happy to book you a ticket (from Comfort to Luxury) and adapt your transfers to ensure you arrive on time to the airport for your flight.
  • FINAL STOP: KEF. While we're sure you'll be sad to go, we also know you'll be so happy you came. And you can always return. 
    Till next time :)
