Good to know:

Self-drive tours begin either in Reykjavík or at KEF Intl. Airport. A valid driver's license is required, along with a one-year long on-road experience. Please be aware that your itinerary may be rearranged to better fit with your arrival date and time.

Some optional activities might be subject to a minimum age requirement, require a valid driver's license or additional information. All snorkelling tours require you to know how to swim, and medical documents to be presented.

This tour requires winter driving. If you feel insecure about driving in winter conditions, we recommend a package tour instead.

Please note that Iceland is a country of oppositions. The weather might be fickle and change rapidly and can get quite cold. Wearing proper shoes and overcoats will certainly make your travels more enjoyable.



Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival & Blue Lagoon


The Tjörninn pond in Reykjavík freezes over in the winter and makes for a serene sight.


You have arrived at Keflavík International Airport, welcome to Iceland! Grab your bags and pick up your rental car from the agency listed on your voucher, get behind the wheel and go.

You will be crossing the lava fields of the Reykjanes peninsula towards Reykjavík, the northernmost capital city of the world.

If you have the time, you can add a visit to the Blue Lagoon upon booking, and make a stop there on the way. This world-famous spa is characterised by its milky azure waters, pooling amidst contrasting black lava rock. A fabulous way to unwind, you can enjoy the restorative effects of the water and let go of any post-flight aches.

After you reach Reykjavík and settle into your hotel, why not explore the charming bars and restaurants the Downtown has to offer. As you wander the streets, be sure to keep your eyes to the sky should the weather be clear in case the Northern Lights come out to play.

Day 2 - West Iceland


The photogenic Black Church at Búðir illuminated by the Northern Lights playing in the sky.


Wake up and get your adventure on the road. Today you will be exploring the West of Iceland and the beautiful Snæfellsnes peninsula. Head towards the historical town Borgarnes known to be inhabited since the early settlement years.

From here, it is highly recommended that you head to two very different but equally majestic waterfalls that so happen to be neighbours. Hraunfossar waterfall is a series of rivulets gently trickling from the lava plateau. Barnafoss, no more than a stone's throw away, it’s a tempestuous torrent of frothing water carving its way through the rock. Be sure to check out the nearby Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring.

Decide now how to spend the rest of your day. You could pay a visit to the easily accessible Viðgelmir Lava Cave, a colourful cavern teaming with fascinating rock formations and icicles.

Alternatively, you might fancy something a little more chilled-out, in which case, lay back and relax in the geothermally heated waters at Krauma spa. You can also explore a man-made ice tunnel, carved out of Iceland’s second largest glacier, Langjökull.

However you choose to spend your day, you are guaranteed to be bowled over by the wealth of natural beauty around you. Retire for the evening at your accommodation on the Snæfellsnes peninsula and don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Auroras.

Day 3 - Iceland in Miniature


The frozen plains at the bottom of the most photographed mountain in Iceland, Kirkjufell.


Today you wake up to ‘Iceland in Miniature’; Snæfellsnes peninsula has been given this nickname thanks to the wealth and diversity of attractions on this modest 90 kilometres of coastline.

You are the designer of the day! You could plan your sightseeing around a visit to the mesmerising Vatnshellir cave on a guided tour. In his famous novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Jules Verne imagines that Snæfellsjökull, the glacier volcano that dominates the peninsula, was the gateway to the deep. Awaken your imagination and delve into the depths of the earth.

You could also explore the gorgeous Snæfellsjökull National Park. On the South Coast of the peninsula, you could go to Djúplónssandur black pebble beach and admire the crashing waves and remains of a historic shipwreck. Heavy lifting stones lie on the beach; in the past, they were used by sailors as a show of strength.

Another option is to pay a visit to the quiet towns of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, all the while keeping your eye out for curious rock formations for which this coastline is famous. You can also make a stop at the Black Church at Búðir which is very photogenic, especially when surrounded by snow and illuminated by the Northern Lights.

On the northern side of the peninsula, be sure to visit the town of Grundarfjörður and admire the ‘most photographed mountain in Iceland’, Mount Kirkjufell. The angular peak of this striking elevation is best enjoyed in front of a small waterfall, Kirkjufellsfoss, that bubbles close to its base and is named in honour of its mountain neighbour.

Spend another evening in the beautiful Iceland in Miniature and prepare for the rest of Iceland tomorrow!


Day 4 - The Golden Circle


Gullfoss in the wintertime takes on a different frozen character every year.


Back on the road and you have the Golden circle route to look forward to. This well-loved circuit takes you to Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and the Haukadalur geothermal valley, home to the geysers.

Þingvellir National Park is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Iceland. Historically significant in the heart of every Icelander, it served as the assembly point of the first parliament, the Alþingi, 930 AD. The Alþingi is still in operation today, albeit now in Reykjavík, which makes it the world’s longest ongoing parliament.

It is just as geologically impressive as it is cultural. Þingvellir is defined by the ridge that runs through it which is caused by the pulling apart of the tectonic plates. Iceland sits atop the mid-Atlantic Rift, and it is the only country in the world where you can observe this phenomenon above ground. As you walk through the park, you are actually walking between continents with the North American plate on one side and the Eurasian on the other.

The nearby Haukadalur valley is home to Geysir, the hot spring from which all other similar features get their name, Geysers. Although Geysir itself is sporadically active, you can still get your fill of erupting boiling water from Strokkur, a neighbouring geyser that blasts to a height of 20-metres every 5 minutes or so.

Close by is the second most powerful waterfall in Iceland, Gullfoss. It cascades in two levels and can be observed from many different angles. Whichever way you take it in, you are guaranteed to be impressed by the sheer scale of this thundering behemoth. In the depths of winter, part of the falls freezes into gnarled ice formations which only add to its appeal.

You have a range of activities to choose to enrich your Golden Circle experience. If you’re feeling pumped for adventure and fancy cranking up your adrenaline levels, you could hop on the back of a snowmobile and dash over the glistening Langjökull glacier in style.

Or maybe all the water you’ve seen today inspires you to get submerged? You can opt to go snorkelling in the Silfra fissure and float between the continents. This crack in the earth’s crust has filled with clear glacier water further filtered through the surrounding lava rocks producing waters with approximately 100-metre visibility.

If you’ve had enough adventure for one day, take a dip in the Secret Lagoon, a geothermally heated hot spring close to the charming town Flúðir.

You will spend the evening in the  Golden Circle area.

Day 5 - Elements of the South


Seljalandsfoss waterfall in nestled in a frozen snowy blanket - it looks quite cosy!


Your adventure continues, and today you will be making your way along the South Coast of the country famous for its black sand beaches and countless waterfalls plunging from the great heights of the South Highlands. A must see is two of these waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss which both fall from heights of 60-metres, the former in a hypnotic cascade, the latter in a thick thundering curtain.

As you drive, you will have the coast on your right and mighty glaciers covering the interior to your left such as Mýrdalsjökull, Eyjafjallajökull and Sólheimajökull. Get to know the ice caps and opt to go for a glacial hike; feel the ice underneath your crampons and marvel at the remote beauty of the frozen landscape.

Perhaps you would rather delve inside a glacier and sign yourself up for the Katla Ice Cave tour. It's guaranteed to leave you enchanted with the electric blues the way the light shimmers on these awe-inspiring natural features.

You will spend the evening in the Vík area.

Day 6 - Glacier Lagoon


The gorgeous Northern Lights play across the sky covering the beautiful Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.


Leaving the charming town of Vík, you can choose to go for a glacial hike in Skaftafell Nature Reserve. Get up early to make the most of the sunshine and spend the morning admiring the magnificent Svínafellsjökull glacier outlet.

Now, prepare yourself for the ‘Crown Jewel of Iceland’, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. There you can watch enormous white and blue icebergs peacefully drift out to sea, scarred in places by veins of black ash from historical volcanic eruptions.

If you are travelling in September or October, you can take a boat tour to get closer to these natural wonders. Take an Amphibian tour or the slightly faster Zodiac boat tour, you decide.

You can also pay a visit the Diamond Beach, just adjacent to the lagoon, and you will find some of these icebergs washed ashore, standing in their frozen glory against the contrasting black sand, - unless it’s covered in snow!

You will spend your evening in accommodation close by, don’t forget to look out for the Northern Lights!

Day 7 - Ice Cave


Anywhere you look in an ice cave, you are guaranteed to be blown away by the shocking blues.


Today you have the opportunity to see one of the most beautiful attractions in Iceland and a must-see on a winter tour, the fascinating blue ice cave. Located on Europe’s largest ice cap, Vatnajökull, you will feel transported to another world as you are surrounded by ethereal blues and striking ice formations. Don’t miss out as this will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your trip.

You can decide how to spend the rest of the day. Perhaps you would like to venture to the Stokksnes peninsula to catch a glimpse of the ‘Batman Mountain’ Vestrahorn. The clustered jagged peaks of this elevation have inspired countless photographers so don’t forget your camera.

You could also spend the day in the charming town of Höfn, renowned for its langoustine lobster. If you couldn’t quite believe your eyes yesterday, why not go back to the glacier lagoon at a different time and immortalise the icy giants on camera once more.

At the end of the day, you will be staying in the same accommodation as the night before, near Höfn township.


Day 8 - Skaftafell Nature Reserve


You can see the aurora borealis in the wintertime here in Iceland if the weather is good.


Day 8 and you have the whole day to familiarise yourself with Skaftafell Nature Reserve. It used to be a National Park in its own right before becoming part of Vatnajökull National Park and it’s easy to understand why.

Skaftafell is rich in diverse attractions from forests to lava fields, glacial tongues to waterfalls; there really is a lot to take in. The area has been labelled a hiker’s paradise so why not explore some of the shorter paths in the area. One such trail leads to Svartifoss, an impressive waterfall cascading in front of black basalt columns so be sure to find it.

Knowing Skaftafell a bit better, you will then return to Vík for the evening. Go for an evening walk and scout for the Aurora over the black coastline. The elevated church makes for an excellent viewpoint for the Northern Lights.

Day 9 - More of the South Coast


The South Coast in the winter takes on a unique charm as the white snow contrasts with the black beaches.


With no end to glaciers, there is no end of glacial activities on offer in this part of the country! Today, you could ascend Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth largest ice cap to hope on the back of a snowmobile and race across the white wintery wilderness. This is a promise of adventure that cannot be resisted. 

Whatever you decide upon, don’t miss a visit to Reynisfjara beach famed for its photogenic sea stacks and impressive basalt columns. Watching the waves crash at the shore is thoroughly hypnotising but be careful not to get too close as the beach is famous for sneaker waves and there have been some terrible accidents.

This evening you will say your goodbyes to the South Coast and make your way back to Reykjavík.

Animal lovers will be delighted at the option to meet the Icelandic Horse, a special breed famous for its fifth gait, the ‘tölt’ as well as its calm and friendly temperament. Suitable for experienced and beginners alike. If travelling before October 31st, you could opt to explore the insides of a volcano and admire the magic of these geological giants from the inside!

A still sea on a crisp and clear winter day.


The time has come for you to make your way back to Keflavík International airport. Drop off your car at Keflavík airport and go to catch your flight.
