Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
REYKJAVIK TO BORGARFJORDUR
REYKJAVIK TO BORGARFJORDUR

After landing at Keflavik airport, collect your hire car and drive through Reykjavik to the Borgardjordur area which is Iceland’s true Viking country, filled with salmon-packed rivers and open, green valleys. The historical region is steeped in the Viking “saga” stories which retell the exploits of the early Viking settlers. Spend 2 nights in Borgarfjordur area.

DAY 2
BORGARFJORDUR
BORGARFJORDUR

Journey through the ‘Saga Circle’ full of historical and natural points of interest. Near to the village of Kleppjarnsreykir is Iceland’s largest geothermal area, Deildartunguhver which you can walk through along a guarded path. A short drive away is the hamlet of Reykholt which was home to Snorri Sturluson who documented the saga stories in the 13th century. The hamlet serves as a pilgrimage site for both Icelanders and also Scandanavians. There is a natural hot tub where Snorri used to bathe, and when open visitors are welcome to try it out. A little further along are the waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. (B)

DAY 3
SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA
SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA

Famed for its volcano, Mount Snaefellsjokull from where Jules Verne is said to have sent his adventurers to the centre of the Earth, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula has a wealth of things to see and do. For the adventurous you can arrange snowmobile trips or hikes to the top of the glacier, or head into the lava tubes. The National Park is Iceland’s youngest and smallest but the terrain is fascinating where the land rises from the sea, through the lava fields and to the peak of the volcano. (B)

DAY 4
SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA
SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA

Continue exploring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Hellisandur is home to the Fisherman’s Museum, whilst there is whale watching from Olafsvik. Near the town of Grundafjordur is the stunning Mount Kirkjufell and an interesting stop is Bjarnahofn farm where they make the delicacy ‘hakarl’ which is fermented shark meat and something of an acquired taste. The town of Stykkisholmur is an active, working fishing port with views across the sea to the Westfjords. (B)
