Day 1 Reykjavik
Arrive in Iceland and transfer to Reykjavik. This compact city is well worth exploring and it’s worth making time to see the striking Hallgrimskirkja Church and the narrow streets of the downtown area. Meet your fellow travellers and tour leader this evening.
Day 2 Reykjavik to Kirkjubaejarklaustur
Leave Reykjavik behind and stop by at Seljalandsfoss, a spectacular 60 metre high waterfall. If its not too icy, there may be the chance to walk behind the cascade and see the waterfall’s power up close. Next stop is Skogafoss Waterfall and a nearby museum detailing centuries of local life in the area. Your journey continues to the black volcanic beach at Reynisfjara where you can admire the crashing waves and nature’s awesome power before arriving at your hotel. The Hotel Laki is situated in a remote area and when conditions are right, offers excellent Northern Lights viewing.
Day 3 Kirkjubaejarklaustur
Head out towards Svinafellsjokull glacier where you can go for a short but spectacular walk, aided by crampons and ice axe. The glacier offers amazing photo opportunities with its walls of brilliant blue ice. Continue to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and take a walk along the lakeside. The lagoon is littered with icebergs and is one of Iceland’s most popular sights. Afterwards, travel back to the hotel for the evening.
Day 4 Kirkjubaejarklaustur to Reykjavik
Travel back along the south coast before turning inland to another spectacular waterfall at Selfoss. Visit the Fridheimar Greenhouse for a unique lunch stop before travelling to Gulfoss, one of Europe’s most powerful waterfalls and another example of how different each of Iceland’s many waterfalls can be. Afterwards, travel to nearby Geysir, home to the famous hot springs which erupt roughly every 10 minutes. Today’s final stop is Thingvellir National Park, where two continental plates meet. Arrive in Reykjavik this evening for a final night with the group to toast the end of this short but incredible adventure.
