TOUR ITINERARY


Itinerary

Day 1

PICKUPS

On your first morning, you will be picked up from the airport or hotel and start your way immediately along the Southern Coast. Our accommodation is on the other side of the island and requires almost four hours of driving, but we will make many stops at different locations to break up the journey.

The first two stops are the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Seljalandsfoss has a path behind it that allows you to adventure behind the falls. Skógafoss is a wide and roaring waterfall with chances of rainbows :) 

Next, we will visit: Sólheimasandur Plane crash. In 1973, a United States Navy DC plane crash-landed on the black sand beach. We will have plenty of time to take photos and wander around the site. The hike to the plane is about 40 minutes. 

Next, we will be heading to the last location of the day: The famous black sand beach light house. We’ll have an incredible cliff view and have time to enjoy the coastline.

*Depending on time, conditions, and most importantly weather, we will go hunt for the Northern Lights before or after dinner. Fingers crossed for a light show!


Day 2

VIK TO VATNAJOKULL NATIONAL PARK

We start the day driving from Vík to Vatnajokull National Park to start exploring the glacial area. We'll spend most of our day at the National Park doing small hikes and wandering around the face of the Glacier.

Next, we will be visiting one of my personal favorite locations in Iceland! The glacier lagoon known as Jökulsárlón. It’s a lagoon filled with drifting ICE chunks, and hearing the ice drift and crack is an ethereal experience. 

From Jökulsárlón we head over to a beach only a minute away. This beach is no ordinary beach. The black sand beach right off of Jökulsárlón is where a lot of the Ice Chunks drifts and lands. It’s also known as Icelands Black Diamond Beach.

*Depending on time, conditions, and most importantly weather. We will go hunt for the Northern Lights before or after dinner. Fingers crossed for a light show!


Day 3

Hofn to Hofell Hot Tubs

If the weather is going right, we'll start our day going to the Hofell Hot Tubs. Time to relax and enjoy our time in the most scenic hot tub location. Mountain views and panoramic hills, it'll be a great way to start the day. You'll be able to dry and change at the location.

Next, we will visit and explore one of the most beautiful locations in Iceland,Vestrahorn. With stunning mountain views, you'll be on black sand while taking in the breathtaking views. Possible chance to encounter farm animals along the way. 

From Vestrahorn we will make our longer drive up to the north east. There will be plenty of stops along the way for you to stretch your legs and take photos. The Eastern cost is one of the most beautiful coasts in Iceland. 

*Depending on time, conditions, and most importantly weather. We will go hunt for the Northern Lights before or after dinner. Fingers crossed for a light show!  


Day 4

 Eglisstadir to Myvatn

We start our day driving from our Airbnb to the Geothermal areas of Myvatn. Be prepared to be amazed by the Mars-like scenery and terrain.

Visiting HVERIR. Hverir is a fascinating area comparable to walking on the moon or mars. There are burping mud pools, hot vents and the FRESH smell of sulfur. (Just kidding, this place smells! But it's worth the beauty) You won't miss a thing! 

Next, Climb HAVERFELL Crater. HAVERFELL Crater is an easy hike and climb up to the top. This crater was formed via a massive explosion 2,700 years ago. 

Next, Geothermal Blue Lagoon! Soak up in the warm lagoon. This is the blue lagoon of the eastern side of Iceland. It’s much less busy and a place the locals come and enjoy the hot baths for a relaxing time.

Next we drive to and visit Goðafoss! My favorite waterfall in Iceland! Our goal is to catch the sunset in this area, if we're lucky possibly even the Northern Lights! 

*Depending on time, conditions, and most importantly weather. We will go hunt for the Northern Lights before or after dinner. Fingers crossed for a light show!


Day 5

Akureyri to Kirkjufell

We will start the morning with a walking tour of Iceland’s second largest city Akureyri. You’ll have a chance to visit local shops, gift shops, and coffee shops. Time to wind down and prepare for our long drive to our next destination. 

Drive from Akureyri to Grundarfjodur

Visit Kirkjufell Mountain and falls. (Golden hour)  

Visit Snaefellsjoekull National Park

*Depending on time, conditions, and most importantly weather. We will go hunt for the Northern Lights before or after dinner. Fingers crossed for a light show!


Day 6

Reykjavik Last Day

For our last day of the tour, we will wake up very early to have one last adventure.

We will make a group decision whether we want to have free time to roam around the city, or go on a short road trip to the Golden Circle. 

We will have our last group dinner together.

We will end our night with a night out in the city of Reykjavik. Celebrating our completed week of adventure and memories. Possible opportunity to dance your heart out this night ;)
