Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
FLY TO REYKJAVIK
Northern lights - Iceland

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 Reykjavík. 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/Hvolsvöllur area. (B) (150km)

DAY 2
SKAFTAFELL & JOKULSARLON GLACIER LAGOON
Seljalandsfoss waterfall - Iceland

Today explore Skaftafell National Park. En route, stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before heading to Skógafoss waterfall. Cradled in the valleys of Vatnajökull, 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 Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where small and large icebergs float serenely in the water. Once darkness falls head outside in search of the Northern lights. Overnight in Hella/Hvolsvöllur  area. (B) (500km)

DAY 3
SOUTH COAST & GOLDEN CIRCLE
Gullfoss waterfall - Iceland

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 Þhingvellir 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. End the day in the greenhouse town of Hveragerdi. Overnight in Hveragerði/Selfoss area. (B) (200km)

DAY 4
REYKJANES & BLUE LAGOON
Strokkur geyser - Iceland

Continue along the south coast of Reykjanes peninsula, stopping at the Seltun Krisuvik hot spring area. Drive to the famous Blue Lagoon (optional), known for its special mineral-rich waters. The bright-blue glow of the water comes from a type of blue-green algae unique to hot springs, and its milky-white appearance comes from the silica. Overnight in Reykjavik. (B) (200km)
 

DAY 5

Blue lagoon in winter - Iceland

Return the car to Keflavik International airport and fly back to the UK. (B) (50km)
