DAY 1 ARRIVAL TO REYKJAVIK

Welcome to Iceland – the land of Fire and Ice

Arrival in Iceland and transfer on your own to your hotel. (Transfer by Shuttle Bus available with Supplement)

With a population of 120,000, Reykjavík is not a whirlwind metropolis. Few skyscrapers grace the skyline, traffic jams are rare and faces are familiar. But don't be deceived—a steady beat of energy and events keeps the city alive and pulsing with excitement.

Overnight in Reykjavik, Centerhotel Arnarhvoll or similar

DAY 2 & 3 GLACIER CROSSING & NORTHERN LIGHTS with Super Jeep

Breakfast in the hotel and departure for the real adventure!

 

We take a gravel road over the mountains and head to Húsafell. On the way, we stop at the beautiful Hraunfossar waterfalls before we stop for a light lunch at Húsafell. From there we will drive towards Langjökull glacier and head up to the ice tunnel. Into the Glacier ice tunnel is located in Langjökull, which is the second largest glacier in Iceland with the size of 953sq/km. We head to the roots of the glacier and there the guide teaches you how to drive in snow and/or ice conditions on the glacier. We drive up to around 1280 meters above sea level, where we stop to explore the clear blue Ice Tunnel (Optional Entrance). Once we are inside, you will experience things you have probably never seen before; a huge ice crevasse, ice chapel and other amazing sights that will make your visit to Iceland an unforgettable adventure. After leaving the ice tunnel we continue to test the Arctic Truck on the glacier and we will go almost all the way across. In the evening we will camp our Arctic tents and stay over-night surrounded by glacier landscape. We will enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner and the camping experience. If the sky is clear you might see the Northern Lights dancing in the sky.

 

We will start the next day by having breakfast after which we finish our glacier crossing and continue our way North. Our destination for the day is a mountain hut called Hveravellir where we spend the night.

This area has geothermal activity and a natural hot pool right outside the hut, so you can have a comfortable evening bathing after the BBQ dinner.

Overnight Day 2: camping with Arctic tents
Overnight Day 3: mountain hut with shared rooms & facilities

DAY 4 GOLDEN CIRCLE - REYKJAVIK with Super Jeep 

We start the day with breakfast in the hut before the adventure of the day. On the last day of driving we will drive the Kjölur road, one of two highland roads that cross Iceland from North to South. It is a challenging route that goes in between two glaciers; Hofsjökull and Langjökull.
On the way back to Reykjavik, we drive to the popular sightings Gullfoss, Strokkur and Thingvellir which are part of the famous Golden Circle.
Strokkur is a geyser that erupts about every 7 minutes and sprouts a fountain of water in the air, sometimes reaching up to 40 meters. Gullfoss is an iconic waterfall which you can see from many angles, each more spectacular than the other. The water plummets down 32 meters into a canyon which walls reach up to 70 meters in height. Thingvellir is a national park in the municipality of Bláskógabyggð in southwestern Iceland, about 40 km northeast of Iceland's capital, Reykjavík. Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological significance, and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland.
