Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival

Harpa Concert Hall is one of the most defining building of Iceland's capital city.

On the first day of your Icelandic holiday, you will arrive at Keflavík International Airport and take a bus to your hotel in Reykjavík. Here, you can unpack, refresh from your travels, then spend the rest of the day getting to know the capital.

Don’t feel pressured to fit as much as you can into today, as you’ll have plenty of time to explore the city before the end of your vacation. But to fill your time today, you can take a stroll down Laugavegur shopping street and explore the many shops, cafés and restaurant found on this strip.

During the booking process, you can choose between a morning or an afternoon departure.  The lagoon is in high demand and so the exact time cannot be guaranteed but your travel planner will do their best to find a time that suits your holiday plan.

You can then spend the rest of the day exploring Reykjavík’s cultural and architectural sites.

Day 3 - The Golden Circle

Gullfoss, on the Golden Circle, is pictured under the Northern Lights in winter.

Today, you will begin your journey around Iceland, starting with visits to its three most popular sites on a route called the Golden Circle.

The first stop on this trail is Þingvellir, one of the three National Parks in Iceland, all of which you will visit. This location has spectacular geology, due to the fact that it is located right between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.

The walls of these plates are visible within the park, and their movements, as they pull apart, have ripped open many ravines, that have since filled with spring water. Þingvellir’s history is as interesting as its geography, as it was the original location of Iceland’s still-ongoing parliament, formed in 930 AD.

Geysir is the second stop on the Golden Circle. This is a geothermal area named after, as can be presumed, the geysers within in. The area’s main attraction, the geyser Strokkur, goes off every five to ten minutes, shooting water over 20 metres into the air. The surrounding area has many hot springs and fumaroles that can be admired as you wait for an eruption.

Gullfoss is the final stop of the Golden Circle. Its name translates to ‘the Golden Waterfall’, with several theories speculating as to why; some attribute it to the waters milky hue, that looks golden in the sunset, while others claim it regards a legend about lost treasure.

Either way, the two-steeped waterfall is beautiful to behold, throwing out rainbows from its mist in the sun, and plastering ice over the rocks around it in winter.

If you wish to add some adventure into this day of sightseeing, you may elect to join a horseback riding tour while booking. Icelandic horses are adorable, intelligent, curious creatures and the opportunity to explore the countryside on the back of one should not be overlooked.

You will then spend the night in a country hotel in the area. Make sure you keep an eye out on the sky for a chance to witness the beautiful Northern Lights in action.

Day 4 - The South Coast

Seljalandsfoss waterfall on the South Coast, pictured here blanketed in snow.

On Day 4, you’ll start to explore the South Coast of Iceland as you begin your circle around the country.

Today’s journey will take you past a wealth of natural sites. The first are two waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. The former is narrow, falling from a height of 60 metres, over a concave cliff. In decent weather, it is possible to fully encircle the falls for some amazing views out on the South Coast.

Skógafoss, on the other hand, is more powerful. It the same height as Seljalandsfoss but with a width of up to 20 metres. The land underneath is very flat, allowing you to walk right up to the curtain of water. 

These waterfalls sit in the shadows of two mighty glaciers, Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. Both of these can be seen in clear weather, and both conceal powerful volcanoes. If you so chose, you will take part in a glacier hiking tour on one of the tongues of Mýrdalsjökull, Sólheimajökull. This adventure will reveal to you the dramatic landscape of an ice cap, and some incredible views of the surrounding area.

The South Coast has even more attractions a little further along like Reynisfjara beach, a beautiful stretch of black sands with views of the dramatic rock pillars Reynisdrangar. From the beach, you will have a fantastic view of the Dyrhólaey Cliffs, home to an enormous rock arch large enough for ships to sail through (even a few intrepid pilots have flown through it).

You will reside for the night in or near the beautiful village of Vík.

Day 5 - Vatnajokull National Park and Ice Caves

The ice caves in south east Iceland are only open in the depths of winter.

On your fifth day, you will complete the South Coast of Iceland, ending in the realm of Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. This route will take you into Iceland’s largest National Park,  named after said glacier.

As you drive through the dark desert sands of the South Coast, the white glacier tongues of Vatnajökull will begin to appear over the horizon. You'll continue east, passing the many glacier tongues of Vatnajökull as you make your way to one of Iceland's most beautiful locations, Jökulsárlón.

Jökusárlón is Iceland’s largest glacier lagoon and deepest lake. Here, hundreds of enormous icebergs break free from a glacier tongue and slowly cruise their way towards the ocean. To add further to the beauty of this location, seals can often be found swimming in the waters.

Adjacent to the glacier lagoon is the Diamond Beach, where some of these icebergs wash up on the black sands where they glisten in the low sunlight like precious gemstones.

If travelling in April, September or October, you have the chance to start this day with an exploration of an ice cave in Mýrdalsjökull, called the Katla ice cave. If travelling between November and March, you can finish the day with a visit to the crystal ice caves, underneath Vatnajökull glacier.

Reindeer can be seen roaming in herds in this region after running wild in the summer up in the highlands, and the waters are pregnant with seabirds.

After taking in the marvellous views and stopping for many photo opportunities, you will end the day in the largest town of the east, Egilsstaðir. This cultural hub sits on the bays of the beautiful lake Lagarfljót, which is said to hold a monster within it, records of which date back further than that of Nessie.

You will then spend the night in Egilsstaðir or in one of the lovely towns of the Eastfjords.

The former is a geothermal area filled with bubbling mud pools and steaming fumaroles. The ground has been coloured with the minerals from the ground, giving the whole area an otherworldly look.

Incredibly geology can be found nearby at Dimmuborgir, otherwise called 'the Lava Fortress' due to its scale and formation. This location was used in the Game of Thrones series to represent Mance Raider’s Wildling camp, and in Icelandic folklore, is said to be the home of the ‘Yule Lads’, or the thirteen Icelandic Santa Clauses.

If you wish to add a little warmth and luxury to this day, the Mývatn Nature Baths are a great option. You'll soak in the mineral-rich waters surrounded by the fantastic views of the Lake Mývatn area, in what is known by the locals as 'The Blue Lagoon of the North'.

You will then spend the night in the Mývatn area, make sure to check the skies for signs of the Northern Lights before you go to bed.

En route, you will pass one of Iceland’s most historically important waterfalls, Goðafoss. In 1000 AD, the Lawspeaker of Iceland threw his idols of the Old Norse Gods into the waters here to symbol the nation’s conversion to Christianity. It has been named ‘the Waterfall of the Gods’ since.

On your ninth day, you will set off in an exploration of west Iceland. You will first drive through the stunning scenery of the Skagafjörður region, where you'll pass towering mountains, wide valleys and a few Icelandic horses as this is the only area in Iceland where these lovely creatures outnumber people.

West Iceland is the home of to the highest flowing hot spring in Europe, Deildartunghver. The water from Deildartunguhver is used to heat up two neighbouring towns, Akranes and Borgarnes.

Day 10 - The Snaefellsnes Peninsula

On a still winter day in Iceland, Mount Kirkjufell reflects beautifully in the sea.

On Day 10, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the wonders of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This region is often called 'Iceland in Miniature', as it has a wide array of different sites along its 90-kilometre stretch.

The most notable feature of the peninsula is Mount Kirkjufell, a pyramid-shaped peak with a picturesque adjacent waterfall. You will stop by this impressive feature to capture its beauty, and that of the nearby waterfall, on film.

You will stop at the picturesque Djúpalónssandur beach where, after following a path through free-standing lava pillars, you will find a beautiful stretch of shoreline filled with smooth black pebbles and the remains of a trawler that perished in the ocean some 50 years ago.

Snæfellsjökull, the glacier and volcano that sits at the tip of the peninsula, forms a magnificent backdrop to many surrounding sites. This glacier has inspired literature for centuries, most notably in Jules Verne’s ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’, and is now protected within a National Park of its own name.

If you wish to have your very own subterranean adventure, you can opt for a tour to Vatnshellir cave, a 200-metre long lava tube which reaches 35 metres underground. You'll follow a path that melted lava created thousands of years ago, seeing the strange rock formation and colourisation it left behind.

After a day packed full of adventure, you will return to Reykjavík.

Day 11 - Free Day in Reykjavik

Snow-capped hills in the Landmannalaugar area in the Highlands.

Day 11 will be your first of four consecutive days in Reykjavík, and there are many ways you can enjoy it. You may, for example, want to add a bit more adventure to your holiday, and there are two optional tours you can choose from during the booking process, both at a discounted price.

The first of these is a helicopter ride over the capital and its surrounding geothermal landscapes. Iceland’s landscapes, as you will have seen over the past ten days, are spectacular, but to see them from above is a unique, exhilarating and incredibly rewarding experience.

Alternatively, you could take a super jeep tour into the Highland region of Landmannalaugar. This beautiful area is defined by its brightly coloured rhyolite mountains, stunning hikes, and many bubbling hot springs. The Highlands are mostly inaccessible during winter except for specially made vehicles, or super jeeps, making this a great opportunity to see even more of the country.

If you would rather spend the day enjoying the city than adventuring, you are more than welcome to. There are a wealth of museums, galleries, pools and sites to see. 

Day 12 - Second Free Day in Reykjavik

A snorkelling tour in Silfra fissure is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Today you can explore Reykjavík city or, alternatively, opt for a tour of the neighbouring countryside. There are three tour options for today: snorkelling, snowmobiling, or adventuring in the Ice Cave Tunnel.

Snorkelling is conducted in Silfra fissure, within Þingvellir, which you visited on Day 3. Though the water is cold here, it is incredibly clear due to the fact that it is a natural spring, which makes Silfra one of the best snorkelling sites in the world. You are provided with protective drysuits and wetsuit hoods and gloves to make this adventure possible.

Your snowmobiling tour, meanwhile, will take you onto the slopes of the second largest glacier in Iceland, Langjökull. This excursion will provide you with an exhilarating experience, incredible views, and a unique perspective on Iceland’s ice caps. You need a driver’s license to operate a snowmobile, but children as young as six can join as a passenger.

The Ice Cave Tunnel is also located on Langjökull glacier. This is a manmade tunnel carved into the ice cap and the only such one in the world where visitors, not just scientists, can enter to explore. This tunnel is much more reliable than the ice caves, as it is rarely compromised by inclement weather.

You are, of course, welcome to spend the day in Reykavík, exploring the many sights this city has to offer. Why not check out the view from the top of Hallgrímskirkja church or from the observation deck at Perlan museum?

Day 13 - Third Free Day in Reykjavik

A snowy winter's day in Reykjavík.

Day 13 is one to be enjoyed in Reykjavík, soaking up the local atmosphere and traditions. One thing that can be said about Icelanders is that they are largely a nation of beer-drinkers, and you can immerse yourself in this side of the culture by electing to take a beer tasting tour.

If you'd rather explore other parts of the culture, then why not see the Árbær Open Air Museum, to see reconstructed turf houses and how Icelandic communities existed for centuries, or else attend the maritime museum, to learn about Icelandic seafaring from the Viking settlement to the Cod Wars.

Of course, if you are seeking more of a 'novel' and humorous experience, it is recommended to go the world's only Phallological Museum located near Hlemmur Food Hall in downtown Reykjavík.

Day 14 - Fourth Free Day in Reykjavik

Reykjavik city has many beautiful parks to be enjoyed.

Your final full day in Iceland is free for you to do whatever you wish; no doubt, over the past fortnight, you will have packed your holiday with fun and adventure, and can tick any boxes that you may have missed before. If you want to spend the day in the pools, bars or shopping streets, you are more than welcome to.

You may also want to see some the natural areas Reykjavík that has to offer. The Seltjarnarnes Peninsula is home to a protected bird watching area and the Grótta lighthouse. Viðey Island, meanwhile, is also home to many works, as well as the Imagine Peace Tower artwork, created by Yoko Ono. Mount Esjan, which overlooks the city from across the bay, can easily be reached by bus and hiked to the top of, so long as the weather is clear.

You can also contact your travel agent for advice on more tours if you are still feeling adventurous. 

Day 15 - Departure

The Sun Voyager sculpture on the coast of Reykjavik represents the Nordic spirit of adventure.

Today is sadly your departure day from Iceland. You will take a bus to Keflavík International Airport with enough time to get through customs comfortably, before boarding your flight back home. No doubt your journey will be spent reminiscing over the incredible memories you have made over the past weeks.
