Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Iceland!

Departure from the UK - arrival at Keflavik Airport. Individual transfer by Flybus shuttle bus from Keflavik Airport to your accommodation in Reykjavík Hotel Cabinor similar 3 star standard, where you will spend the night. Reykjavík is modern city and so much to do and see. We will provide some ideas to help you explore Iceland's capital on your own.

Day 2: Golden Circle

At 08:30 meet your tour guide and start the escorted tour program with a short city tour around Reykjavík. We explore the Golden Circle route. The first stop is at Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site. Next, we visit the hot springs at Geysir and travel to the double waterfall, Gullfoss. We continue to Kerið, a caldera with a crater lake on the bottom and which resembles an ancient amphitheatre. In the evening, you hear about the Northern Lights from your tour guide. Naturally, once darkness falls, you are out in the garden waiting for the Northern Lights. We will stay for one night in South Iceland.

Day 3: Vatnajökull National Park, Glacier Lagoon, Diamond Beach & optional Ice Cave tour.

A long drive brings us to a world of glaciers, ice, and icebergs. We travel to Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest national park and glacier and to Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon which is filled with floating icebergs. You can walk on the black sandy beach, the so-called Diamond Beach, where large icebergs get stranded. Tonight you can enjoy a movie presentation about Northern Lights as a part of the Northern Lights educational program. Be careful not to go to bed too soon in this remote and quiet location, or you may just miss out one more chance of seeing the Northern Lights shimmering and dancing across the night sky.

From mid-November to mid-March an optional ice-cave visit at Vatnajökull glacier is offered; which can only be booked with the tour guide on day 2 of the tour. Payment is onsite (ISK 23.000). Includes return transfer to hotel.

Day 4: South Coast & Lava Show

Today, we head across the Laki lava field to the village of Vík where we attend the stunning Icelandic Lava Show; the only exhibition in the world where you can experience actual flowing lava! By melting lava and pouring it on ice in a room full of people, you’ll be able to see the lava flowing, hear it sizzling, and feel the heat that radiates from it. In the afternoon we take a stroll on the black lava beach and along the bird cliffs at Reynisfjara beach in South Iceland. We pass the glacier Mýrdalsjökull and the infamous volcano Eyjafjallajökull. We continue to Skógafoss waterfall and stop at the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall. In the evening you return to Reykjavik for one last night. An optional Northern Lights bus tour or fjord cruise can be booked on the spot if the weather conditions are ideal.

Day 5: Departure

Optional Excursion: Visit to the Blue Lagoon

If flight time allows, you can take an optional trip to the world famous Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa on your way to the airport. The lagoon is ideally located between Reykjavík and Keflavík International Airport and therefore it is convenient to use this time to visit before your flight. Enjoy the Blue Lagoon for 2-3 hours. You can book a treatment if you like, have a lunch at the Blue Lagoon or just relax in this wonderful spa.

Continue on to Keflavík International Airport about two hours before your flight. If you have a morning flight back, you may be able to visit the lagoon on arrival instead if flight time allows.

CHANGE OF PROGRAM: Itineraries may be subject to change at short notice during severe weather conditions and certain outdoor activities/day trips may be cancelled during the winter season in Iceland. In these rare cases, where situations of force majeure apply, excursions/activities cannot be refunded but the local guides will try their best to find reasonable alternatives where and whenever possible.
