SPRING TOUR ITINERARY

Join me on a 6 day adventure around the land of fire and ice. 

We will be visiting iconic, beautiful, and EPIC locations all around Iceland. From the stunning tall waterfalls, to the mystical black sand beaches. We will have our hands full exploring the most beautiful locations in Iceland, as well as have the chance to witness and experience the Magical NORTHERN LIGHTS. Each night depending on the weather forecasts, we will be chasing Northern Lights together. 


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 five 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 be heading to the next and last location of the day Vík. Exploring the famous Black sand beach, we will have plenty of time to take photos and wander around the coastline. 

Next we will drive to our AIRBNB in the nearby town and settle in for dinner.

*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. If you've never seen a glacier before, it's one of the most beautiful and magical sights. 

Next, we will be visiting one of my personal favorite location in Iceland! The glacier Lagoon known as Jökulsárlón. A lagoon filled with drifting ICE chunks. It's such magical area, hearing the ice drift and crack is a beautiful experience. 

From Jökulsárlón we head over to 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. Also known as Icelands Black Diamond Beach. A truly unique experience! 

Next we will drive to our AIRBNB in a town called Höfn and settle in for dinner.

*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. 

Next we will drive to our AIRBNB in a town called Eglisstadir and settle in for dinner.

*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 EPIC MARS like scenery and terrain.

Visiting HVERIR. Hverir is a fascinating area comparable to walking on the moon or mars. 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, climb up to the top. This crater was formed via a massive explosion 2,700 years ago. 

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! 

Next we will drive to our AIRBNB in a city called Akureyri and settle in for dinner.

*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 Icelands second largest city Akureyri. With 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

Next we will drive to our AIRBNB in Reykjavik and settle in for dinner.

*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. 

Leave to airport at 11am.
