Day 1:

Arrival and The Golden Circle

A driver will greet you at Keflavík International Airport and take you to your hotel in Reykjavík. In the afternoon, you will take a tour of the Golden Circle and see waterfalls, geysers, and Þingvellir National Park.
Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of Iceland's most fascinating places due to both its impressive geological formations and for the significant role it plays in the country's history as the original meeting site of the Icelandic parliament, the oldest existing parliament in the world.
After a stop there, we’ll head east and you'll soon see steam rising from the Haukadalur geothermal area that is home to Geysir. During our stop here, you can explore many hot springs and bubbling pools including Geysir, the geyser from which the English word is derived. Geysir itself is now dormant, but another geyser, Strokkur, erupts at 5-10 minute intervals.
We'll then continue on to Gullfoss, a majestic double waterfall that tumbles 105 feet into the canyon of Hvitá, one of the longest rivers in Iceland.

Day 2:

Land of the Sagas

After enjoying breakfast, you will be picked up from your hotel and we will drive to the northwest, stopping to sightsee along the way.
We will pass through Dalir, a region rich in history thanks to meticulous and unbroken recordkeeping that dates back to the beginning of Iceland’s settlement in the 9th and 10th centuries. Rounded mountains, lush valleys, and crystal clear lakes and rivers offer great photography, hiking, and bird watching opportunities.
We will also get to admire Breiðafjörður’s spectacular sea shores and (weather permitting) enjoy an amazing, panoramic view over Snæfellsnes. In the evening, you can relax in the hot tub at the country lodge enjoying the long bright nights.

Day 5:

The South Coast

Today, we will head to the South Coast stopping by in Hvolsvöllur for a short coffee break before arriving to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall cascades from ancient sea cliffs down over 60 metres to a shallow pool. It is possible to take a walk behind the waterfall and enjoy the beautiful scenery from there. Next stop is at Skógar and then Vík where you will find a black sand beach with some fantastic sights such as the picturesque basalt column formations and the magnificent Reynisdrangar sea stacks. We continue onwards to Vatnajökull National Park where we make a short stop at Skaftafell before arriving to the Glacier Lagoon, Jökulsárlón. After enjoying the lagoon, we will head to our accommodation where we can relax after a long day

On the way we take a 1 hour glacier hike on crampons and possibly stop to visit Dyrhólaey, the home to many breeds of seabirds. Drop-off in Reykjavík is late evening, depending on Northern Lights visibility. Spend the night in Reykjavík City.
