Day 2
South Coast & Waterfalls

After a good breakfast at your accommodation, take you along the south coast of Iceland, one of the country’s most scenic regions. Among countless stunning sights, you will visit the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss where you can walk behind the misty cascade, before traveling further to the picture-perfect Skogafoss waterfall. You will stop at Sólheimajökull for a scenic walk. If you’re up for more, you have the chance to add an easy and safe glacier walk on crampons and explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses, and learn about these disappearing giants.

You will also visit the world-famous Reynisfjara, which is widely considered to be the most beautiful example of Iceland’s black sand beaches. You can leisurely stroll along the beach, and witness the Reynisdrangar cliffs and basalt rock stacks that rise from the sea.

You will spend the night in the charming village of Vík.

Day 3
The Vatnajökull National Park

This day, you will continue your journey along the stunning coastline. You head out in the direction to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. On your way there, make a stop at Skaftafell Nature Reserve, a part of the Vatnajökull National Park. You can spend time marveling at the area’s great beauty by trekking the many well-maintained hiking trails, including a short walk to the beautiful Svartifoss waterfall, which features pitch-black hexagonal basalt columns and a rugged canyon.

At the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon which has been set for many Hollywood movies, you can witness the slow breakdown of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier as huge blocks of ice constantly break off the glacier and float on the lagoon. You get to take a safe boat ride and cruise between magnificent towering icebergs that fill the lagoon as they move their way slowly out to the ocean. On Diamond Beach, you can find small icebergs (crystals) that have washed ashore and look like glittering diamonds. Many seals call this beach home, and it is one of the best places in the country to see Orcas from the shore.

Day 4
South coast & Reykjanes peninsula

Today you will be traveling back towards the Reykjanes peninsula, and you have plenty to see en route. You will make a stop at the rugged and moss-covered Eldhraun lava field, before exploring Fjaðrárgljúfur, a magnificent and massive canyon. Most people choose to walk along a walking path up on the canyon's edge while simultaneously enjoying the view above the canyon.

Reykjanes Peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark – a cultural, geographical, and historical treasure trove where the Mid-Atlantic ridge rises above sea level. Nowhere else in the world can you see the oceanic ridge and its divergent plate boundary as clearly as in Reykjanes. Pillow lava, curious rock formations in the shape of elves, trolls and outlaws put their distinct mark on the amazing landscape of the peninsula.

After the last few days of adventure on the road, it’s time to relax and enjoy the luxury in natural surroundings in the Blue Lagoon Retreat Hotel & Spa. Price quote includes a private Moss suite with an amazing view over the lava fields and the lagoon.

Today is the day you relax and take in all that the Blue Lagoon Retreat has to offer. Built into an 800-year-old lava flow on the south shore of the Blue Lagoon, the spa at the Retreat embodies the harmonic convergence of nature, design, and the radiant powers of geothermal seawater. Conceived and created to transport your mind and body to new dimensions of peace and rejuvenation, the spa journey moves through volcanic realms of luxurious heat, enchanting geology, and inspiring conceptual design.
