Tour Descriptionmore

Day 1

Arrival

After your arrival in Keflavik airport in Iceland, an airport shuttle will take you to your accommodation in Reykjavik. Depending on your time of arrival, a visit to the famous SPA Blue Lagoon is recommended. A bath in milky blue hot geothermal water within a black lava landscape is probably one of the most unique in the whole world.

Day 2

Peninsula Snæfellsnes

Today you will drive to the south of the peninsula Snæfellsnes. The route in the south of the peninsula leads you to lava fields, white beaches and a natural hot spring. If you want you can ride with Icelandic horses on a white beach.

Day 3

National Park & Golden Circle

Today you will visit the farm Bjarnahöfn, which produces the traditional Icelandic food known as „rotten shark”. The trip through the northwest of the Snæfellsnes National park is one of the highlights of the tour. You will see the glacier Snæfellsnes, the cliffs of Lóndranger or go on an amazing hike either through lava fields or along the coastline. After visiting the one of the most beautiful fishermen’s villages in Iceland, you will drive to the so called „Golden Circle” with highlights including Þingvellir, Geysir and the waterfall Gullfoss.

Day 4

Westman Islands

A ferry will take you to the so called “Westman Islands”. The latest eruption on these volcanic islands took place in 1973. You can hike on the Volcano Eldfell or go for a walk along the coastline where you will more than likely see some puffin birds. Your accommodation will be on the Westman Islands.

Day 5

South Coast

In the morning the ferry will take you back onshore. You will then visit the amazing waterfalls Seljalandsfoss, Glufrafoss and Skógafoss. The cliffs Dyrhólaey, the black beach in Vík and for those who are willing to take a longer day tour, the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlon will create unforgettable memories.

Day 6

Peninsula Reykjanes & Reykjavik

On the way back to Reykjavík you can enjoy the milky blue water of the Blue Lagoon (entrance is not included in price).

Day 7

Return Trip

Depending on your departure time, you may have time for a city visit of Reykjavik or a visit to the amazing Blue Lagoon with its milky blue geothermal SPA (if not visited the day before).
