Welcome to Iceland!
Your car will await you at Keflavík International Airport with a user-friendly GPS system. From there, you can explore some of the Reykjanes Peninsula and go to the Blue Lagoon for a relaxing soak in the geothermal waters if you chose to add tickets during the booking process. If your arrival flight is late in the evening, you can also visit the spa on your final day in Iceland rather than on this day. It is your choice!
On your second day, you will explore the Snæfellsnes Peninsula where you will find the picturesque stratovolcano Snæfellsjökull. This volcano is also a glacier and is famous for being the entryway for the subterranean journey in Jules Verne’s classic novel ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’.
For your own chance for a subterranean journey into a volcano, you take a tour to Þríhnúkagígur. If you are travelling in September or October, you can board a tour bus in Reykjavík that will take you to this inactive volcano where you will descend into the now empty magma chamber.
Lava Cave &
The Golden Circle.
Today it is time to visit torn landscapes, erupting geyser, and a thundering waterfall, all part of the fantastic Golden Circle.
Start your drive heading south, but before you reach the famous attractions of the Golden Circle. There you’ll then make your way to Þingvellir National Park, a historic site located on the boundaries of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Keep driving on out to Geysir geothermal area where you’ll find the active geyser Strokkur.
On your fourth day, you’ll start travelling the stunning South Coast of Iceland. Today, you’ll drive past mighty glaciers to visit some of the country’s most beautiful attractions.
You could also opt for a glacier hike on top of Sólheimajökull, one of Mýrdalsjökull glacier tongues. Fill your lungs with the cold, crisp mountain air as you traverse past blue crevasses and snowy peaks, blackened by ash from past volcanic eruptions.
Before you make your way to your accommodations near the village of Vík, stop by the stunning Reynisfjara.
From Vík, the journey continues eastward towards the beautiful Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in Vatnajökull National Park.
From there, you’ll drive to the crown jewel of Iceland, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Here, massive icebergs that have broken off a nearby glacier float on the serene waters of the lagoon before they drift off to the ocean.
At the end of the day, you will spend the night at countryside accommodations near Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, surrounded by stunning vistas and, hopefully, the Northern Lights.
If you are travelling between November and March, you will have the rare opportunity to visit an authentic ice cave.
Close to the lagoon is a black sand beach where smaller icebergs have washed up on shore, which is why the beach has earned the nickname ‘The Diamond Beach’.
In the afternoon, you’ll start making your way back to Reykjavík city. On your journey, you can stop at your favourite places along the South Coast. You can also refer to your personal itinerary and discover new places along the way.
Now it is time to bid farewell to Iceland. If your flight leaves late, you might have some time to squeeze in a few last adventures. Just remember to give yourself enough time to drive to Keflavík International Airport, return your car, and catch your departing flight.
You could also do some last-minute shopping in Reykjavík and bring back home a souvenir or two to remember your fantastic trip to this land of ice and fire.
Enjoy your flight and come back soon!
