Tour Itinerary

Arrive Reykjavik. Transfer and check in to your hotel for an overnight stay
Awake in Reykjavik and start a sightseeing tour of the colourful capital of Iceland. Uncover a wonderful mix of old and new from the old town centre to the modernity of the trendy downtown harbour district. See the stunning Harpa Concert Hall, the Parliament and the Hallgrimskirkja Church. Travel northwest via Hvalfjordur and stop at the town of Akranes to visit its Museum Centre which showcases a comprehensive collection of geological and maritime exhibits and enjoy spectacular views from the top of a lighthouse. Discover the bubbling waters of Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring, which provides heating for most of the homes and businesses in the area. En route to Borgarnes stop in Reykholt, home of renowned Icelandic Saga writer and medieval scholar Snorri Sturluson, and visit the unique waterfalls at Hraunfoss and Barnafoss. In the evening, embark on a northern lights hunt and overnight in Borgarnes area. (B,D)
Travel to Snaefellsnes Peninsula, discover the charming fishing town of Stykkishólmur before a boat tour in Breiðafjörður fjord and sample freshly caught scallops whilst sailing around this unique archipelago. Stop at the fishing villages of Grundarfjordur and Hellnar and see their impressive coastline and mountains. Jutting out into the bay is one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland - Mt Kirkjufell. Continue to the picturesque village of Arnarstapi, which offers the chance to walk among columnar basalt rock formations. Enjoy the astonishing natural landscapes of Snaefellsnes National Park, from blanketed lava fields and pebbled beaches to the impressive Snaefellsjokull glacier-volcano. In the evening, transfer back to Borgarnes and embark on your second northern lights hunt. Overnight in Borgarnes area. (B,D)
Today, discover the natural wonders of the Golden Circle. See Gullfoss waterfall, the queen of Iceland’s waterfalls (that tumbles down a deep meandering gorge), and the nearby world-famous Geysir geothermal field, where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble. The most active geyser, Strokkur, spouts water high into the air every 15 minutes. Visit the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, an area of exceptional beauty and the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. In the afternoon, stop at the Efstidalur dairy farm and enjoy some local skyr, an organic, hormone-free yogurt that has been enjoyed as a breakfast staple and dessert treat in Iceland since Viking times. Continue to Hveragerdi, the city with the highest concentration of greenhouses in Iceland, and visit Friðheimar greenhouse and horse stable. Overnight in Hveragerdi area. (B,D)
Travel along the coastline of Reykjanes Peninsula and stop en route at Strandarkirkja - a church popularly believed to have a special power to provide good luck. Discover Lake Kleifarvatn, set in fascinating, stark, moonlike surroundings and Krysuvik bubbling springs, where powerful jets of steam escape from deep below the earth’s crust. Continue to the town of Grindavik and, after lunch, transfer to the famous Blue Lagoon, where you can enjoy a relaxing dip (towel included). In the evening transfer back to Reykjavik and overnight at your hotel. (B)
