ITINERARY:

 

DAY 1 – Arrival

 

Arrival in Iceland.

 

If your flight lands early in the day we recommend taking the time to explore Reykjavík, the largest municipality in Iceland.

 

Ingolfur Arnarson, the first settler of Iceland built his farm on the peninsula where Reykjavík stands today. The town got its name “Smoky Bay” after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area and made such a deep impression on the first settlers.

 

In the evening you can choose from multitude of restaurants and/or coffee-houses to get better acquainted with Iceland's capital.

 

Overnight stay in Reykjavík (airport transfer not included)

 

 

DAY 2 - Westman Islands

 

We travel along the south coast to Landeyjarhöfn harbor. After arriving at the pier at Bakkafjara we take a 30 minute ferry to the Westman Islands. Once there the group will explore Heimaey Island, the largest of the Westman Islands. Other adventures of the day include: a visit to the puffins in Storhofdi, a walk up to the crater of a volcano that erupted only a few decades ago, visiting Eldheimar Museum and exploring flora of the new lava field. Afternoon at leisure to explore the island on your own.

 

Overnight in the Westman Islands

 

 

DAY 3 - South Shore – Skógar – Vík  

 

We take the ferry back from the Westman Islands and travel further on along the south shore noting the numerous glacial rivers on route to Skogar and Skogafoss waterfall. We visit with the farmers of Thorvaldseyri Farm located at the foot of the world famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano that last erupted in the spring of 2010. A visitor's center/family run exhibit was opened in spring 2011 where guests can view a 20 minute film about the spectacular natural event. Our next stop will be at the Skogar Folk Museum before continuing on, passing Solheimajokull Glacier to the black Reynisfjara beach.

 

Dinner and overnight stay in Vik area for the next 2 nights.

 

 

 

DAY 4 - Kirkjubæjarklaustur - Skaftafell – Jökulsárlón

 

We cross Eldhraun, the largest mass of lava ever to flow on the face of the Earth before reaching the small town Kirkjubaejarklaustur, a former site of a 12th-century Catholic convent. Onwards to Skaftafell National Park, one of Iceland's most outstanding areas of natural beauty. We continue to the stunning Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon to see floating icebergs and possibly curious seals. Throughout the day we are afforded magnificent views of the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier. Back to Vík.

 

Dinner and overnight in Vik area.

 

 

DAY 5 - Gullfoss – Geysir – Þingvellir – Reykjavík

 

We head for the Geysir hot spring area to see the famous great Geysir as well as Strokkur, a hot spring that spouts every few minutes. Onwards we travel to Gullfoss one of Iceland’s most impressive waterfalls. Our next stop is Thingvellir National Park, where the ancient parliament met for centuries on the shores of Iceland’s largest lake, before heading back to Reykjavik.

 

Overnight stay in Reykjavik
