Day 1: Arrival and the Golden Circle

Your Driver/Guide will pick you up on arrival at Keflavik Airport, and take you to your hotel. After a relaxation time of your choosing, the driver will take you on a private sightseeing tour along the famous Golden Circle. The first stop will be the town of Hveragerdi the capital of hot springs. The town is positioned on an active volcanic zone and there is a geothermal area in town with multiple hot springs.

Experience how we can use the heat from the ground, by cooking an egg in a boiling hot spring and taste bread that has been baked in the ground for 24 hours. After Hveragerdi and a nice refreshment, visit Geysir and witness Strokkur bursting the boiling hot water high up in the air.
From Geysir head to Gullfoss (Golden waterfall) to view this magnificent waterfall and feel the power of the glacial water.
Visit Thingvellir National Park where the oldest parliament in the world was established. The guide will take you on a hike through the area and point out some interesting stories from the area and the viking ancestors. During the evening in Reykjavík, you can enjoy the evening in this vibrant city.

Day 2: Private Superjeep and Hike in Thorsmork Tour

The Guide will take you on a fun super jeep tour on the Southern lowlands of Iceland in a modified Superjeep. The destination is the Thorsmork (the forest of Thor) Nature Reserve, which is an incredibly beautiful mountain ridge situated between the glaciers Tindfjallajökull and the famous Eyjafjallajökull, which erupted in the year 2010. On the way into Thorsmork, the drive includes crossing unbridged deep and powerful glacier rivers and over challenging and rough terrain, testing the capability of the jeep. You will stop and explore a beautiful canyon with a hidden waterfall, take a look at Gígjökull glacier that almost disappeared in the 2010 eruption and you will be able to see and witness the power of the eruption.
In Thorsmork there are several difficulty levels of the hike for the day. As Thorsmork offers several hiking options, we can go for an easy and relaxing sightseeing with short hikes, exploring the lower parts of the area. We can go for a moderate difficult hike where we will hike higher up in the mountains where we will see magnificent view and landscape, or we can go for the most challenging option where we will hike up to Fimmvörðuháls ridge where you will meet the lava that ran in the year 2010.
We will end the day by barbecuing in Thorsmork (Básar) before driving back. On our way back we will stop at the famous waterfall, Seljalandsfoss, where you will be able to go behind the waterfall and explore while we will pump air back into the tires of the jeep.

Day 3: Into the Glacier, Snowmobiling and Saga Country Sightseeing

Today the Driver-Guide takes you to the western part of Iceland, to Húsafell and the Langjökull Glacier. The drive to the basecamp takes us across the glacier's vast snowy wasteland and incredible surroundings. After snowmobiling we literally walk down into a magnificent man-made Ice Cave beneath the ice cap. The Glacier expert guide will take the small group on this fantastic journey to the icy netherworld deep within the glacier. Until very recently what lies beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery. But sometimes bold ideas do become a reality. This seemingly impossible feat was made possible through the combined efforts of the country's top engineers and geophysicists. Inside the glacier the temperature is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit.
After snowmobiling and exploring the Ice Cave we make our way back to civilization. The Private Driver-Guide takes you on a sightseeing to the magnificent Hraunfossar (Lava Falls) and the powerful Deildartunguhver Hot Spring and the nearby Krauma Spa, depending on weather and your interests. The tours finishes by your luxury hotel in Reykjavík.

Day 4: Inside the Volcano Tour and the Retreat Hotel

Today the Private Driver-Guide takes you to the Thrihnukagigur Crater. From the parking lot there is an hours hike to the basecamp, were you descend on an ‘Inside the Volcano Tour’ into this unique place. Thrihnukagigur volcano is dormant – it last erupted over 4,000 years ago. There are no indications of it erupting again in the near future. The beauty of the crater mostly consists in the various lava colors found inside it and its enormous – and to some extent intimidating – size. To put it in context, the ground space is equivalent to almost three full-sized basketball courts planted next to each other and the height is such that it would easily fit full sized Statue of Liberty into the chamber. An innovative method is used to lower visitors down through the crater’s opening. The 120 m/400 ft journey takes about 6 minutes to complete, giving you an idea of how slowly you will be moving down into the crater. The slow speed is to ensure the safety of passengers, but also to provide the opportunity to enjoy the amazing scenery. Everybody that goes down into the crater will be placed in a harness and required to use a helmet (provided on-site) at all times. Several guides, all highly trained and experienced mountain guides and cave explorers, will be with you at all times. (The tour inside the volcano is a group tour)
At the end of the tour, your private driver/guide will take you to the Blue Lagoon Retreat Hotel, where you will enjoy the spa facilities and restaurant in the evening. Included in the stay is access to the Retreat spa, Blue Lagoon Ritual and the Retreat lagoon, as well as the Blue Lagoon itself, a la carte breakfast, Blue Lagoon skin care amenities, in-room minibar with complimentary soft drinks, beer and wine, Wi-Fi, turn-down service, guided group hikes (daily), group yoga lessons (daily), Use of fitness center, and afternoon coffee in the lounge.
