Itinerary

Day 1: ARRIVAL DAY Transfer from Reykjavik airport to hotel
Day 1: ARRIVAL DAY  Transfer from Reykjavik airport to hotel

We will check-in to our hotel in Reykjavik, rest, have dinner, and re-energize for the next day's adventures.

Day 2: REYKJANES PENINSULA & THE BLUE LAGOON
Day 2: REYKJANES PENINSULA & THE BLUE LAGOON

The Reykjanes Peninsula, with its hot springs, mountains, bird cliffs, lunar landscapes, and fishing villages, is our destination. Krsuvk has solfataras, fumaroles, mud pots, and hot springs. The soil is a vibrant yellow, red, and green. In the afternoon, we warm up in the popular Blue Lagoon's geothermal mineral-rich waters. When we arrive in Reykjavik, we will show you the highlights of Iceland's capital, including a visit to the Pearl, a panoramic view from the observation deck, and a walk through a man-made ice cave in the middle of the city.

Optional activities include whale watching from Reykjavik, hiking on the Reyjanes Peninsula, horseback riding, and lava caving.

Day 3: GOLDEN CIRCLE
Day 3: GOLDEN CIRCLE

We begin the morning with a brief introduction to Icelandic geology before watching a powerful film at the Reykjavik Volcano House about the 2010 eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull and Fimmvöruháls, which stranded millions of people worldwide due to thousands of cancelled flights. These films provide an excellent overview of Iceland's general geology and volcanology. At the Volcano House, you can examine various pieces of pumice, ash, and lava from Icelandic volcanoes in a hands-on geological exhibition.

Later, we depart Reykjavik and drive to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the Althingi, the world's oldest legislative assembly. This is one of Iceland's most fascinating places, both geologically and in terms of its significance to the country's history and sense of national identity. Thingvellir is also notable for its natural science significance, as it is part of a fissure zone that runs through Iceland and is located on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The area's faults and fissures demonstrate the rifting of the earth's crust.

Exploring Geysir's hot springs is like watching a real-life geography lesson: natural springs bubbling away in the ground until the pressure becomes too much – and they explode in spectacular fashion.

Geysir and Strokkur are the two largest geysers in the area. While Geysir is no longer active, Strokkur continues to erupt every 5 to 10 minutes, much to the delight of visitors. Then we go to Gullfoss, also known as "the golden falls," which is a double waterfall that falls 34 metres into the Hvtá river. Gullfoss is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. Keri is a water-filled explosion crater that looks like an ancient amphitheatre. Overnight in Selfoss or Hella, South Iceland.

Optional Activities include snorkelling, river rafting, hiking, horseback riding, and a visit to a horse farm and geothermal greenhouse.

Day 4: VATNAJKULL NATIONAL PARK & GLACIER LAGOON
Day 4: VATNAJKULL NATIONAL PARK & GLACIER LAGOON

After a long drive, we arrive in a world of glaciers, ice, and icebergs. We travel to the glacial lagoon of Jökulsárlón, which is filled with floating icebergs. We will explore this incredible site and hopefully see some seals swimming in the Arctic waters. You can walk on the black sandy beach, known as Diamond Beach, where large icebergs become stranded. The Vatnajökull National Park is approximately 12,000 square kilometres in size and is Europe's second largest National Park.

Iceland's highest mountains, an alpine environment, and Europe's largest glacier are all found in this region. We will spend one night in in the Vatnajökull National Park region.
Optional activities include a 2-hour hike to an epic plane wreck, a glacier hike, a snowmobile tour, and horseback riding

Day 5: SOUTH COAST
Day 5: SOUTH COAST

Today we travel across the Laki lava field to the village of Vk, where we stop for a photo opportunity. We walk along the bird cliffs and the black lava beach at Reynisfjara beach in South Iceland. We pass the glacier Mrdalsjökull and the infamous volcano Eyjafjallajökull on our way to Skógafoss, a 62-meter-high waterfall that is one of Iceland's most impressive. Further west, we reach the 65-meter-high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which plunges over the mountain. You will return to Reykjavik in the evening, where we will spend two nights.

Optional activities include whale watching from Reykjavik, hiking in Vatnajokull National Park, and visiting the Lava and Volcano Exhibition Centre.

Day 6: WEST ICELAND, GLACIER, & ICE CAVE
Day 6: WEST ICELAND, GLACIER, & ICE CAVE

Today we're heading west. Borgarfjörur is known as the Saga Valley due to the importance of its historical events. We go to Deildartunguhver, Europe's most powerful hot spring, which generates 180 litres per second of nearly boiling 97° Celsius water. We will stop nearby at a local family's horse farm, where you will be able to hug an Icelandic horse and take a selfie with your new friend. The members of the family tell us about life and farming in rural Iceland. Hraunfossar is a series of waterfalls that pour from beneath a vast lava field. Barnafoss – the Children's Falls – is close by and has its own tragic storey. We return along the scenic shores of the Hvalfjordur Fjord.

Monster-Truck tour of the Langjökull glacier and a visit to the world's largest man-made glacier cave are included in the package.

FAQs

How widely are credit cards accepted? Is it necessary for me to enter a PIN?
In Iceland, credit cards are widely accepted. Visa and MasterCard are your best bet because they are accepted by all Icelandic banks.
While most businesses do not require you to use a card with a PIN number, there may be a few exceptions, such as at some gas stations. Using a debit card for a full tank of gas at the pump may automatically put a significant sum of money (around $200) on hold in your bank account, which is released within a few days, as it is in many other places in the United States. Some gas stations may also require you to go inside and purchase a pre-paid gas card, but you can usually do so with a credit card.

It's also a good idea to have cash on hand in case of an emergency; USD or Euros will suffice.
Is it customary to tip in Iceland?
While service charges are usually included in your bill in Iceland, you can still tip your waiter or guide—10% is usually sufficient. The truth is that Icelanders are well-paid, and tipping has never been a significant part of their culture.
What kind of power adapter should I bring?
Iceland operates on Northern European voltage (220 volts) and Europlug sockets with two round prongs. Your adapter should be of type "F" or "C," which are both labelled as Northern European. Before you pack your belongings, make sure to check the voltage labels on your appliances to see if you'll also need a converter.

You can leave your hairdryer at home because most hotels in Iceland have them in the rooms. If you forget to bring your converter or adapter, you can buy one at Keflavik Airport and many hotels.
What is the currency used?
The króna (Icelandic currency) (ISK). As of this writing in early 2018, 100 ISK is worth approximately $1 USD - you should check current exchange rates.
I'm not fluent in Icelandic. Can I travel on my own?
The majority of adults in Iceland speak English fluently. In fact, it is extremely rare to come across someone who does not speak English, particularly in the service industry.
