Itinerary

Reykjavík

Welcome to Iceland

You will be greeted at the arrival gate by a person holding a name sign and accompanied to the airport exit. You will be guided through passport control and the baggage delivery area. This service includes Fast-Track through passport control.

In the arrival hall, you will meet with your private driver guide.

Reykjavík at leisure

You will be staying in the heart of Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital. Get settled into your hotel and take the opportunity to explore the charming and vibrant downtown area. Reykjvík 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. We recommend visiting some of the wonderful sites which the world´s northernmost capital offers:

  • Harpa Congress & Event hall
  • The Old harbor area
  • Hallgrímskirkja church (optional to pay on-site for a trip to the top of the tower)
  • Statue of Leifur Eiríksson, the first settler in Reykjavík
  • Höfði house
  • Sólfarið metal sculpture
  • Bessastaðir, president's home
  • Perlan (optional to pay on-site for entry to the viewing deck)
  • Reykjavík city hall
  • Alþingi, parliament house
Day 1
Waterfalls and Glaciers

Today, your private guide will 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 glacier walk filled with exploration and adventure. On this fun, safe, and easy to moderate glacier hiking tour, you get to explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, water cauldrons, ridges, and deep crevasses on the breathtaking Sólheimajökull glacier. The unique experience of a glacier hike on one of the many retreating glaciers of the world is sure to leave lasting memories. 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 near the charming village of Vík.

Day 2
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, your guide will 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. 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.

At Fjallsárlón, close to Jökulsárlón, you get to take a safe Zodiac boat ride and cruise between magnificent towering icebergs that fill the lagoon. The boat will take you close to the glaciers, providing dramatic views of the blue and white icebergs and the breaking glacier tongue. Once you've explored these incredible natural treasures, you'll head to Hella area, where you will stay for the night.

You will stay for the night in Hella area.

Day 3
The Golden Circle

During your holiday in Iceland, you cannot miss the famous Golden Circle. You have the whole day to enjoy the sights of this area. The main highlights are Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the great Geysir geothermal area with bubbling mud pools and spouting geyser, and the milky waterfall Gullfoss.
