Day 1: Reykjavik

Welcome to Iceland. The world’s northernmost capital of Reykjavik lies just below the Arctic Circle.

Day 2: Golden Circle/Hvolsvollur Area

Make an early start to beat the crowds on the ‘Golden Circle’ route. Head first to Thingvellir National Park, home to the Parliament Plains and location of Iceland’s first parliament.

Day 3: South Coast/Skaftafell NP/Jokulsarlon

Begin the day with a visit to the breathtaking Skogafoss waterfall. At 25-metres wide with a 60-metre drop, this waterfall roars. You can feel it’s power up close with a strenuous walk up a windy set of stairs up to a stunning viewpoint. The black sands and bizarre, rectangular rock formations of Reynisfjara are up next. Then, travel to Skaftafell National Park, where you have the option to walk on the mottled blue, grey and black face of Skaftafellsjokull, one of the tongues of epic ice cap Vatnajokull.

Day 4: East Fjords/Modrudalur Valley

Take a scenic drive along the rugged coast of the East Fjords. Enjoy spectacular views of high mountains, deep fjords, spectacular waterfalls, glaciers, and quaint fishing villages. Make stops along the way at small but notable towns like Faskrudsfjordur, where historical ties have resulted in street signs being written in French. You’ll also stop at Djupivogur which became a member of the cittaslow movement in 2013 and is aiming to be the Happiest Town in Iceland, and drop by Egilsstadir, home to the mythic Lagarfljot Wyrm.

Day 5: Lake Myvatn/Akureyri

Set off for magnificent Dettifoss, Europe’s mightiest waterfall at 100-metres wide and with a 45-metre drop into the craggy shores of Jokulsargljufur canyon below. It’s so powerful that it’s vibrations can be felt underfoot. Continue to volcanic Lake Myvatn.

Day 6: Akureyri/Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Situated at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord, Akureyri is the nation’s second-largest city. Embark on a short walking tour of the town, taking in the striking church and other local sights. If you’re travelling between May and December, you might have the option to partake in a whale watching excursion. Ask your leader for details. Later, continue to Snaefellsnes National Park, home to the magnificent Snaefellsjokull Glacier.

Day 7: Snaefellsnes Peninsula/Reykjavik

Continue exploring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, beginning with the basaltic pebble beach Djupalonssandur. Continue to the white beach at Budir, then go on to Arnarstapi, where a short stroll along the coastal cliffs exposes you to rich bird life and other wonders of nature. Next up is Lysuholslaug, where you can bathe in thermal pools (depending on the seasons) or check out the pony-sized Icelandic horses grazing in the fields.

Day 8: Reykjavik

Today is departure day and time to say sjaumst (see you soon)! Check out time is at midday. If you are departing later, you can arrange with reception to store your luggage at the hotel.
