Welcome to Iceland

Welcome to your self-drive holiday in Iceland! Once you arrive at Keflavik International Airport and clear customs, you’ll pick up your car at the rental service area. You only need a short ride with a shuttle bus located outside the arrival hall to get to your preferred rental vehicle. The shuttle bus departs every 10-15 minutes, so you won't be wasting your time waiting for the transfer. The first night will be spent in the heart of Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital. Get settled into your hotel and start exploring. Reykjavik city center offers many great sights, and the city is unique in so many ways. You will not find the towering skyscrapers of America or the age-old narrow streets, which time has seemingly forgotten and seemingly unchanged since Roman times, as in Europe. Reykjavik is somewhere in between and yet miles away. With its small quirky houses and both tiny and open spaces, it’s colorful, modern, charming, and old all the same time. So, don’t forget to bring your camera along, and get ready for photo ops at every turn.

Day 1
South Coast & waterfalls

Start your day early and travel along the stunning South Coast of Iceland. You surely have an eventful day ahead starting with exploring Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the misty cascade, the picture-perfect Skogafoss, the stunning black beach of Reynisfjara, and the charming village of Vík. At Hvolsvollur, the Lava Center offers you a superb interactive exhibition where you will learn about the birth and growth of Iceland as one of the world’s largest volcanic islands.

Day 2
The Puffin experience

On day three, head to Reykjavik harbor and take an hour-long boat trip to see the puffin breeding colonies at Akurey island. There are about 30.000 puffins nesting on the islands off the coast of Reykjavik and the islands you'll visit are well known for their colorful birdlife.

Afterward, spend your afternoon exploring the city or head out of into the countryside on a range of excursions from scenic sightseeing to active adventures We recommend visiting one of the many interesting museums, the church of Halgrimskirkja where you can enjoy the view over the city from the tower.

Day 3
Horses and Lava Caves

Today, you will explore the magnificent lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest and best-known lava tubes in Iceland. It is located just 30 minutes from Reykjavík and is easily accessed year-round. An unforgettable family-friendly experience. In the afternoon, take the family on a horseback riding adventure in the Icelandic countryside. Icelandic horses are easy to ride and unintimidating even for the youngest members of the family.

Day 4
The Blue Lagoon Premium Experience

Sadly, this short adventure has come to an end but before you fly out you can stop at the Blue lagoon and relax with the family. Return your rental car in good time to check in for your flight at the same location as you picked it up from. It is recommended that passengers check-in for their flights 2,5 hours prior to departure time.
