During this tour, you will see all the best that Iceland has to offer! You will visit many of the best-known tourist places in Iceland, but you will also stop at places which are our best-kept secrets, where you can avoid the crowds and discover places in Iceland to call your own.
On your first day you will travel along the South Coast to admire the stunning waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, as well as the secret Gljufrabui. You will also visit Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in Europe, and unique black beach Reynisfjara near the village of Vík. From April to the end of October you can also experience what it is like to walk on a glacier under the care of an experienced glacier guide.
Second day continues through the East Coast. First on the itinerary is visit at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. During summer months (May-October) you can take a closer look at floating icebergs during an Amphibian boat tour, while during winter (November-March) you can jump in a superjeep on the journey to discover natural a Blue Ice Cave. The nearby Diamond Beach is a must-see-place while visiting this beautiful country – no matter the season the view over the satin black sand beach decorated by melting ice chunks looks equally stunning. On this day you will also visit the Vestrahorn Mountain, the Lagarfljot Lake inhabited by the Icelandic version of Loch Ness monster and Studlagil Canyon just to name a few attractions. Your journey through the coastline takes you along narrow fjords, endless green valleys and charming fishing villages.
On Day 3 you will travel through a totally unique landscape around Lake Mývatn, shaped by extremely high volcanic activity. There you will go for good hikes around geothermal fields with bubbling mud pots, countless craters, hot springs and even inside the geothermal cave of Grjotagja. During the scenic drive through northern parts of Iceland you will also stop to admire three amazing waterfalls; Dettifoss (the most powerful waterfall in Europe), Selfoss and Godafoss (waterfall of the Gods). The day ends in Akureyri – the capital of Northern Iceland.
You will start Day 4 by kicking off from Akureyri heading north to the village called Dalvik, where you can embark on a boat searching for whales in the beautiful Eyjafjordur. This area is known for its unusually high presence of many representatives of whales, unlike in many other parts of Iceland. In Hvammstangi there is even more wildlife waiting for you. You will visit the Icelandic Seal Center – award winning museum run by a non-profit organization focusing on protecting these cute mammals. In addition to the wildlife watching you will also be able to admire the picturesque Hvitserkur rock and Kolugjlufur canyon.
On your last day you discover the many wonders located in the historic area of Borgarfjordur, including Hraunfossar, a world-unique lava waterfalls (view over nearly 900 meters of rivulets streaming from the lava field), Grabrok Volcanic Craters and Deildartunguhver – a hot spring with highest flow of hot water in Europe. You will also take an expedition inside Vidgelmir (the biggest known lava cave in Iceland) and end a fun-filled day by relaxing in the Krauma Spa.
It is the perfect tour for those who want to explore and see the best attractions of Iceland and experience an adventure without having to worry themselves about getting around and would rather relax and watch the scenery than focus on the road.
