Itinerary

Welcome to Iceland

Welcome to your holiday in Iceland!

Your Iceland self-drive vacation is about to begin. 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.

Your first stop is at the Blue Lagoon. Included in the Comfort Package are the entrance to the Blue Lagoon, use of towel, silica mud mask, and a choice of one drink.

*You can also visit the Blue Lagoon as part of your transfer back to the airport on your departure day if it fits better with your flights. 

You will be staying 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.

Optional Extras

  • Upgrade to Premium Package
  • Upgrade to the Retreat Lagoon Spa
Day 1
The South Coast & Katla Ice Cave

Breakfast at your hotel.

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.
In Vík, you will join a super jeep tour to Katla Ice Cave.

Day 2
Skaftafell & Vatnajökull National Park

Breakfast at your hotel.

Start your day early and 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.

Continue your journey to the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon which has been setting 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 3
The Golden Circle

Breakfast at your hotel.

The historic Thingvellir National Park is a natural wonder and the site where the longest continuously run parliament was founded and still running after some good 1.000 years later but now as Althingi in Reykjavík. You will visit the Geysir Hot Spring area where Strokkur can reach the height of around 25 meters, erupting every 10 minutes or so, and the mighty Gullfoss waterfall with is milky water known mainly for its’ majestic beauty.

Day 4
Departure

Breakfast at your hotel.
Sadly, your Iceland vacation has come to an end. 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.
