Day 2 The Golden Circle

Golden Circle

We tour the renowned Golden Circle including a visit to the famous Geysir hot spring area, where Strokkur erupts every 5-10 minutes. We also visit the Gullfoss (Golden) waterfall and Þingvellir national park, where the forces of the Great Atlantic Rift are clearly visible. This is where the North American and European tectonic plates drift apart at a rate of 2-6 cm per year. Þingvellir is also the place where the ancient Icelandic parliament was established in 930. It is an area of truly outstanding beauty as well as geological and historical significance After visiting these world famous sights and a visit to local horse stable and a greenhouse, we drive through the landscapes of South Iceland to our accommodation near the town of Vik, where we will stay for 2 nights.

In the evening we head for the Northern Lights hunt. (weather dependable).

Day 3 Glacier lagoon

Jökulsárlón – The Glacier Lagoon

 We travel east today, along the South Shore to the unique Jökulsárlón, or the Glacier lagoon. The lagoon developed about 60 years ago with continuing process of calving and falling off icebergs from the glacier Breidamerkurjokull. These icebergs are seen in 2 colors, milky white and in bright blue color, which is an interplay of light and ice crystals.

The lagoon is filled with that drift in from the sea. Seals can often be seen playing.

On the way back to Vik, we visit Skaftafell national park. Skaftafell is renowned for it´s natural wonders and special beauty.

Day 4 Volcanoes and Waterfalls

Volcanoes and Waterfalls

Many consider the waterfall Seljanlandsfoss to be the most romantic waterfall in the Iceland, and marriages are not uncommon close to the waterfall. Seljalandsfoss cascades off a cliff and it is possible to walk behind it, but you will probably get wet. Skogafoss is one of the most stunning waterfalls in Iceland, so you are in for a treat, visiting both of those waterfalls on your way back to Reykjavik.

The highlight of the day is a visit to the Blue lagoon. You have the choice of viewing the lagoon or enjoy soaking in the mineral rich water. (bathing entrance optional). In the late afternoon you arrive to your hotel Plaza in Reykjavik.

Day 5: Departure

Goodbye Iceland

Transfer from hotel in Reykjavik to Keflavik airport. If you have chosen shared shuttle transfer it may take up to 90 minutes. A private transfer normally takes 45 minutes. You can enjoy Reykjavik in the morning of your departure, as your flight most likely will leave in the afternoon.

When an opportunity arises to witness the wonders of the Northern Lights we may adjust the itinerary. However with the Northern lights being a natural phenomenon and very hard to predict, sightings is no guarantee.


Travel dates Thursday - Monday.
Price $1,095 per person based on 2 people sharing double/twin room (excluding flight). Single supplement is $325.

Iceland nature is a luxury to be enjoyed. You will have the best of both, stay in the countryside for 2  nights and in Reykjavik for 2 nights. Enjoy the scenery. It is so much to see and you will be able to visit Iceland’ s natural wonders
