Itinerary

Day 1
Arrival at Keflavik

No service included, except accommodation. Overnight at Hotel Klettur or similar. Dinner is not included. 

Day 2
Farmlands and mountains of the North West

Our guide meets the group the hotel in Reykjavik at 8:45 am. We drive northwards via the tunnel of Hvalfjördur to Borgarnes and then onwards to Skagafjördur fjord, known for being one of the main homes of the Icelandic horse and the only county in Iceland where horses outnumber people. Continue over the highland plateau of Öxnadalsheidi to Akureyri, the capital of north Iceland. Overnight stay in Akureyri.

Day 3
Lake Mývatn area

We stop at Goðafoss waterfall on our way to Lake Mývatn. Lake Mývatn is a shallow eutrophic lake in a dramatic landscape dominated by volcanic landforms such as the  pseudocraters at Skútustadir and the lava pillars of Dimmuborgir. The area around the lake is a geothermal area with high activity and a place where all your senses will be called upon as we stop at Námaskarð’s bubbling sulphur mud-pits and steaming vents. Next we drive to Dettifoss, one of Europe’s biggest waterfalls. After a stop at this powerful force of nature we travel across the highlands of Mödrudalsöræfi to our final stop of the day at the village of Egilsstaðir.

Day 4
Powerful waterfall and East Iceland

From Egilsstaðir we head towards the fairly isolated and very beautiful East fjords. Apart from the highlands this is the most sparsely populated area of Iceland with only about 3% of the total population living on the farms and small fishing villages of the area. Here we make our way between the rugged mountains and the endless ocean watching the breathtaking scenery of cascading waterfalls coming down steep cliff sides and small rivers flowing into the narrow fjords that open towards the North Atlantic. Overnight stay in the fishing village Höfn.

Day 5
Fjords, Glacier and Glacier Lagoon

Not far from Höfn is the Glacier Lagoon Jökulsárlón. Great icebergs break off the main glacier and float in the lagoon taking on strange abstract shapes of white and blue then floating out sea some breaking further down to scatter along the Diamond Beach. The bus trip continues further on to National Park Skaftafell. It is a beautiful, green oasis at the root of the massive glacier Vatnajökull crowned by Hvannadalshnjúkur, the highest peak in Iceland. We continue past lava fields of Eldhraun and observe the black glacial deposits at Mýrdalssandur. We continue to the area of Vík with its black sand beaches and landscape shaped by the massive volcanoes of Katla and Eyjafjallajökull. We also visit the two breathtaking waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. Overnight stay at Selfoss.

Day 6
Golden Day

First visit of the day is to the majestic Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most beautiful waterfalls. Next stop is at the geothermal area around Geysir. Here we experience the active geyser Strokkur which erupts every five minutes a high column of boiling hot water. It truly is a fascinating phenomena. Continuing to the National Park and Rift Valley of Þingvellir, where we can see the edges of the tectonic plates as well as the site where the oldest parliament still in function was founded by the viking settlers in 930AD. From Þingvellir we drive on to Reykjavik. Overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 7
Good-bye Iceland

Individual transfer from your hotel in Reykjavik to Keflavik airport
