ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

DAY 1:

Arrival to Keflavik Airport. We’ll arrange a shuttle bus transfer to take you to your accommodation in Reykjavik. You’ll enjoy the rest of the day at leisure armed with our guide to Reykjavik to help you make the most of your stay in the world’s most northerly capital city. Dinner is not included, but we’ll recommend some local eateries.

Staying at: Icelandair Hotel Natura



DAY 2:

After a prompt start to the day, you’ll meet your guide at the hotel. Departing from Reykjavik, your journey begins as you pass the the town of Borgarnes before an opportunity to climb the Grabrok volcano crater. In the afternoon, you’ll visit a small fishing village to explore the natural history and seal museum. Heading north, you’ll encounter one of Iceland’s architectural gems at the turf church of Vi?myri which has been extensively restored and now offers a window into the past. You’ll continue north passing fjords until you reach the town of Akureyri where you’ll stay overnight.

Staying at: Icelandair Hotel Akureyri



DAY 3:

After breakfast, it’s time to explore the dramatic landscapes of Iceland’s wild north. After a stop at Akureyri’s botanical garden, you’ll enjoy a view over the Eyjafjordurfjord. Next stop is Godafoss - a wide-angled waterfall that hides stories of Iceland’s saga filled past. After marvelling at Godafoss, Lake Myvatn beckons - a white wonderland in winter and a haven for birdlife in summer. Whatever the season you travel, your final visit of the day will be sure to please at Myvatn Nature Baths. Just like the Blue Lagoon in the south, Myvatn is the lesser visited of the two, and therefore a more quiet and soothing experience as you relax in the warm geothermal waters.

Staying at: Hotel Reynihlid



DAY 4:

After breakfast you’ll head to the lava labyrinth at Dimmuborgir where you’ll learn about the local troll inhabitants. In the afternoon your next stop will be the hot spring area of Namaskard where you’ll witness bubbling mud pools and steaming solfataras.

DAY 5:

After breakfast, your journey continues through fjord landscapes and tiny fishing villages before arriving to Vatnajokull - Europe’s largest glacier visible from much of the country. A highlight of your tour will be the jaw-dropping sight of Jokulsarlon - a glacial lagoon with floating icebergs that looks spectacular all year round. Spend the rest of the day at Europe’s largest national park with mountains and peaks to admire.

Staying at: Icelandair Hotel Kirkjubaejarklaustur
