DAY 2 REYKJAVIK – JÖKULSÁRLÓN – KIRKJUBÆJARKLAUSTUR

Breakfast at your hotel

Today we will drive along Iceland’s South Coast.

Here the first stops will be at the beautiful waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.

Then we will proceed to the Jökulsárlón Glacier – part of Vatnajökull, Europe’s biggest glacier – where an amazing experience is waiting for us: a boat trip to sail between the icebergs of the glacier!

After the boat trip, there will be sometime for taking pictures of the so called Diamond Beach, a strip of black volcanic sand filled with icebergs washed up on shore from the glacier lagoon.

 

Dinner & overnight at Fosshotel Nupar or similar (HB)

DAY 3 KIRKJUBÆJARKLAUSTUR – VIK – SÓLHEIMAJÖKULL – SELFOSS  

Breakfast at the hotel

 

We keep exploring the south coast, continuing our tour towards Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland. Nearby the village, we will stop to Reynisfjara beach, which is known for its black sand and odd cliffs. This is also the area where you might see the cute puffins – the unofficial national bird of Iceland.

Then we drive to Sólheimajökull, part of the larger Mýrdalsjökull glacier which lies atop the Katla caldera. The glacier is melting rapidly owing to warmer annual temperatures due to climate change. It is possible that many of the country's glaciers will become extinct within the next century.

 

Dinner & overnight at Selfoss Hotel or similar (HB)

DAY 4 SELFOSS – GOLDEN CIRCLE – HÚSAFELL  

Breakfast at the hotel

 

Today 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.

 

Dinner & overnight at Húsafell Hotel or similar (HB)

DAY 5 HÚSAFELL – INTO THE GLACIER (OPTIONAL) – HRAUNFOSSAR – REYKJAVIK

Breakfast at the hotel

 

In the morning enjoy an Optional adventure that will lead you to the untouched beauty and raw nature of Langjokull, Iceland’s second largest glacier. Enjoy the opportunity of a lifetime as we journey up the white slopes and go deep inside the man-made ice tunnels leading to the blue heart of the glacier. We will ride in modified glacier vehicles specially made to explore the glacier environment and enjoy the view as we drive on top of the ice cap. Our experienced guides will lead the way and make sure that everyone is both enjoying themselves and learning the basics of glacier knowledge.

After lunch (not included), we make our way back towards Reykjavik, making a photo stop to Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull.
