1 Arrive In Reykjavik, Iceland
Welcome to Reykjavik! At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and travelling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (D)
2 Reykjavik - Hellisheioarvirkjun - Geysir - Gullfoss - Thingvellir - Borgarnes.
After an orientation drive of cosmopolitan Reykjavik, enjoy an interesting visit to the geothermal heat and electric POWER STATION in Hellisheiðarvirkjun. Next, see the hot springs at the Geysir geothermal area and look forward to meeting the chef of the Geysir restaurant. Taste freshly baked bread, which is cooked using the heat from the hot springs, with Icelandic butter, boiled eggs and herring, and a glass of Geysir schnapps, served at freezing point. Then, marvel at the mighty Gullfoss waterfall and stop in Thingvellir, a geological paradise. Here, you will walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between the North American and European tectonic plates. (B/D)
3 Borgarnes - Hauganes - Akureyri
A real treat! At Hauganes, embark for an unforgettable experience: watch whales in their natural habitat! Continue to Akureyri for your overnight stay. (B/D)
4 Akureyri - Gooafoss - Lake Myvatn - Borgarfjorour Eystri.
During your orientation of the capital of northern Iceland, hear about the city's history after it was established as a trading centre in 1602. Visit the BOTANICAL GARDEN, featuring specimens of almost all native Icelandic plants. Then, admire Goðafoss, known as the "Waterfall of the Gods." Enjoy a scenic drive to the lovely blue Lake Mývatn, teeming with bird life in one of Iceland's prettiest areas, and stop at the Mývatn Nature Baths, a set of geothermally heated pools and steem baths. Before arriving in Borgarfjörður Eystri, take pictures of the most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss (road conditions permitting). You may even see puffins, known as the "clown of the sea" (end of April to mid-August). (B/D)
5 Borgarfjorour Eystri - Hofn.
In the morning, enjoy a "Meet the Locals" walking tour and hear about life in the rural Icelandic countryside over the centuries. Follow the eastern coast, where the first Irish missionaries settled some 200 years ago, and arrive in Höfn. (B/D)
6 Hofn - Lake Jokulsarlon - Skaftafell National Park - - Vik Area.
Prepare for the highlight of the day: stop at Lake Jökulsárlón, where some of the most spectacular scenes of the James Bond movie Die Another Day were filmed. Watch how the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull, flows into the lake, forming icebergs. An exciting optional boat trip is available through the icebergs (mid-May to September, weather permitting). Drive through the national park at Skaftafell and arrive at your overnight hotel. (B/D)
7 Vik Area - Seljalandsfoss - Reykjavik
Along the South shore enjoy views of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, well known for the eruption that generated the massive ash cloud in 2010, then stop at spectacular Seljalandsfoss waterfall before returning to Reykjavik. This afternoon, join an optional excursion to the Blue Lagoon. Tonight, a farewell dinner awaits at one of Reykjavik's fine restaurants to celebrate your Icelandic Adventure. (B/D)
8 Reykjavik
Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning. (B)

“Iceland was amazing”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2018 1 Helpful Vote

We both loved Iceland. It had so much to offer and the accommodation was excellent. There is so much diversity in this small country and so much to see, certainly one to add to any bucket list.

“Taste of Iceland”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2018

This was a convenient way to see many highlights of Iceland. Stress free with no driving to do and no worries about booking accommodation and tours. Some days were very long with too much time at rest stops and insufficient time before dinner but overall we enjoyed the tour and travelled through some stunning scenery.

“Spectacular Iceland”
- QLD, Australia Aug 2017 3 Helpful Votes View Photo

This is a fantastic tour to an extraordinarily, magnificent part of the world. All aspects of the tour were well organised. The Tour leader was enthusiastic, organised and informative which made for a seamless experience for us. We would thoroughly recommend this tour. Put in on your bucket list, sooner rather than later!

“Iceland - too much to see, too little time”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2017 5 Helpful Votes View Photo

Iceland was certainly more than I expected. The diversity of the terrain and sights - from lava fields, miles of moss covered rocks, green farmland, majestic waterfalls, ice flows, whales and hot springs - were fascinating. Holm, our tour guide, was exceptional, regaling us with Icelandic history and stories of vikings and trolls. We also had great weather with day time temperatures up to the low twenties (celcius) and lots of sunshine, amazing for the beginning of August....read more

“Fantastic Iceland”

So much to see. Some lunch stops could have been shorter to allow more time at each amazing scenic location. Great hotels and meals.
