You will embark on a personal tour together with an experienced guide to enjoy some of the most exciting sights that Iceland has to offer. The tour is suitable for 2–10 people.

Arrival to iceland & evening in Reykjavik
Upon arrival a shuttle bus will be waiting to take you to Reykjavík where you will be free to spend the first evening exploring at your leisure. If the weather is nice and you feel like a bit of fresh air when you arrive, we would recommend taking a nice stroll or a bike ride by the sea. The Eidissida route is very popular and takes in the President’s official residence, Bessastadir, as well as Mount Keilir and its characteristic peaks. You can then recharge your batteries before your adventure the next day, perhaps by enjoying a hearty meal at one of the city’s many fine restaurants? Ask us if you would like any advice on where to eat!
Super jeep Safari along the Golden Circle
Start the day by having a solid breakfast at your hotel. After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel for your superjeep excursion to the Golden Circle, where you explore some of Iceland’s most fascinating and well-known natural phenomena. First stop is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Thingvellir (Tingvalla) was also where the World’s first parliament met around year 930, and the place is rich in both history and wonders!
From Thingvellir we follow narrow mountain trails towards the world famous geothermic area of Geysir. With regular outbreaks every 5 minutes you will have several opportunities to experience the hot spring Strokkur's majestic cascading water column being flung into the air.
After a stop for lunch, our journey continues to Gullfoss, ”the golden waterfall”. The powerful gushing water over several lava formed stages is a spectacular sight. From Gullfoss we head towards the Icelandic Highlands, where a snowmobile trip is a possible option (included for those who have chosen the package with snowmobiling).
After a day filled with adventure, the drive then takes you through a village nicknamed the ”village of greenhouses ”, Hveragerdi, where most of Iceland’s vegetables are grown in naturally heated green houses. You also make a short stop by the Kerid volcano on the way, before you return to Reykjavík.
Own activities and the Blue Lagoon
Today you will be free to do whatever suits you best. Spend an entire day in Reykjavík exploring the city or go on an excursion in the local area. Or maybe hire a car and drive out to some of Iceland’s many highlights within comfortable day-trip distance.
Get to know Reykjavík at your own pace. Wander through the streets, soak of the atmosphere and enjoy its many interesting museums, restaurants and designer shops. Digest all your experiences over a cup of coffee in one of Reykjavik’s many cafes, and feel the pulse of Reykjavík!
You can also choose to relax in one of the many outdoor bathing pools around Reykjavík – an option that is very popular with local Icelanders themselves. Or why not enjoy some of our selected activities and excursions over the coming days? Below is a list of the optional activities we recommend for this package.
After your trip you will be able to spend the evening dipping your feet in the fabled Blue Lagoon – an enchanting oasis in the middle of a lava field. Pick-up will be at 17:30 and the journey will take approximately 50 minutes from Reykjavík. The Blue Lagoon is an outdoor hot spring which gets its water directly from geothermal sources as deep as 2,000 metres underground and which maintains a warm and inviting temperature of 36–39°C all year round. There is also an indoor lagoon and a geothermal sauna. If you like, you can also book a massage treatment to really round off the experience and return to your hotel feeling totally rejuvenated both inside and out.
RETURN HOME (3N) OR A DAY WITH OWN ACTIVITIES
If you have chosen a three-night trip then you will be travelling home today. You will be picked up at your hotel in good time before the departure tine of your flight.
If you have chosen to extend your trip then today will be another exciting day to make your own discoveries. If you spent yesterday in the spa or around the town, then perhaps you might be tempted by a little more adventure today – or why not start the day with a spot of whale watching? Reykjavík is the departure point for lots of whale watching tours with daily departures. The best time for this activity is from June to August but the excursion is popular all year round. We promise you there’s nothing like the special feeling you get watching these magnificent giants of the ocean up close.
Another option for today is to head out on a glacier hike. From Reykjavík you can either hire a car and drive yourself or you can join a tour and head out for a hike on the glacier tongue of Solheimajökull. In addition to an exciting hike with mighty views and deep ice fissures to explore, the route also offers up black lava beaches, dramatic mountain peaks and some of the most impressive waterfalls in the country. Check the bottom of this page for a list of optional activities and excursions that we recommended especially for this trip.
RETURN HOME (4N) OR A LAST EVENTFUL DAY IN ICELAND
If you have chosen a four-night trip then you will be travelling home today. You will be picked up at your hotel in good time before the departure tine of your flight.
If you have chosen to extend your trip even further then today will be yet another day of adventure and discovery on the fantastic island of Iceland. How about seizing the opportunity to do something that many people only dream of – namely a horseback tour atop some gorgeous Icelandic horses! From Reykjavík you have a wide variety of great riding tours offering pick-up from the city. Choose from short and simple rides to longer and more demanding routes for experienced riders.
Or if you’d prefer to swap the horse for something with even more horsepower, why not head out on an ATV to round off the trip on your last day before returning home? Check the bottom of this page for a list of optional activities and excursions that we recommended especially for this trip.
