Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
FLY TO REYKJAVIK
FLY TO REYKJAVIK

Arrival in Keflavik International airport and collect your car. Drive south along Route 1 towards the town of  Hella, where you will spend your first night. Hella is a small town in South Iceland, around 94 kilometres from the capital Reykjavik. Located on the ring-road that encircles Iceland, it is the perfect location from which to explore the famous sites of this region. Overnight in Hella/Hvolsvollur area. (B) (144km)
 

DAY 2
SKAFTAFELL & GLACIER LAGOON
SKAFTAFELL & GLACIER LAGOON

Today explore Skaftafell National Park. En route, stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before heading to Skogarfoss waterfall.

 

Cradled in the valleys of Vatnajokull, Skaftafell National Park is a natural wonderland of ice, mountains, sand and water. Glacier tongues flow from the tallest peaks all the way down to sea level, where huge deposits of glacial sediments have spread out into the flat-sand delta of Skeidararsandur.

 

Drive on to Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, where small and large icebergs float serenely in the water. Overnight in Hella/Hvolsvollur area. (B) (550km)
 

DAY 3
SOUTH COAST & GOLDEN CIRCLE

Visit the famous 'Golden Falls' - the Gullfoss waterfall. This stunning sight marks the limit of the highland shelf, where the Hvita river tumbles over the edge to the floor below. Explore the Geysir hot spring area, where Strokkur erupts every 10-15 minutes.

 

In the afternoon, visit Thingvellir National Park. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this incredible site is remarkable for its geology. It was here the Vikings established their parliament in 930AD.
