Daily itinerary

DAY  1:

After touchdown in Iceland and as soon as you clear customs, you will be met by your private guide (English speaking driver-guide). He will help you with your luggage and load up into our beautiful Mercedes Benz GL.

Upon arrival, you will have the opportunity to explore the city with your guide. He can take you to visit some of Iceland’s most exciting brands, most delicate local art, famous landmarks, and get you acquainted with the city. This tour can be completely customised to fit your needs and interests.

Depending on what time you arrive, we will also set up appropriate activities for you.

Around 7:00 PM, You will board a beautifully restored two-masted schooner. You will watch from the deck as you sail out of Reykjavik and enjoy the cityscape. You will be served dinner in the firelit dining area and have a cozy, relaxing time in the schooner. After dinner, you will be able to hop into the hot tub located on the deck and stargaze and search for the northern lights. This rugged yet beautiful boat is as close as you'll come to getting a real Viking experience. You will sleepover in simple cabins and get a good night's sleep in complete peace.

Day 2:

Wake up to breakfast onboard the Schooner.

Wake up in the Hvalfjörður fjord area, where you will be able to observe the landscape from the boat, and you will be able to board the zodiac and cruise around. Late morning you will get back on land in the fjord, get in the car, and drive the golden circle route with an option to do some exciting adventures.

You will first stop at the most beloved national park in Iceland, Þingvellir, which is a significant place for Icelanders not only because it is a place where you can see the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates glide apart but because the Althingi parliament was formed there in 930 AD, and is protected by UNESCO.

At Þingvellir lake, you will meet with a divemaster that will get you suited and booted to snorkel in Silfra. You will float between two continental plates, surrounded by the astonishing clarity of the water and the mesmerizing colors of this underwater world. Afterward, you will have an option to warm up in a local geothermal pool before continuing with the tour. You will see the Gullfoss waterfall, which is considered the most beautiful in Iceland by many. The water plummets down 32 meters in two stages into a rugged canyon where walls reach 70 meters in height.

Continue to the Haukadalur geothermal area, where you have various geothermal features: Geysers, mud pools, fumaroles, algal deposits. You will see erupting hot springs, the dormant Geysir and active Strokkur, one of Iceland's most famous geysers - erupting about every 4–8 minutes 15 – 20 m high, sometimes up to 40 m high.

You will have lunch at Fridheimar geothermal tomato farm. The Greenhouse farm grows tomatoes 365 days a year using help from the forces of nature. The farmers opened up a restaurant in the greenhouse in 2011 and serve lunch and coffee to bypassers every day. At the Greenhouse restaurant, you will receive a short tour, meet with the farmers, and you will receive a private dinner setting and be served a three-course meal, starting with their infamous tomato soup.

Just below the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, a magnificent canyon makes up a fantastic rafting location. Enjoy the beautiful landscape from a new angle! Rafting down the Hvítá river is a splendid way to spend the day. You would have the whole river to yourselves as the rafting season doesn't start until late May. Private hot tubs and barbeques available after the rafting tour.

Overnight at Skálakot Manor Hotel.

Day 3:

Breakfast at your hotel.

Today you will head out for another adventure-filled day.

First, you will drive past Seljalandsfoss waterfall has a cave behind it, allowing you to walk around it. You can get amazing pictures from behind it! Gljufrabúi waterfall is only a short walk away but hidden away in a cave, so not many people see it nor know about it.

From there, you will get on a super jeep tour up to Eyjafjallajökull glacier, the notorious volcano that erupted so memorably in 2010. As you reach snow, you will switch over to snowmobiles and go on an excursion on the glacier and see the crater. Eventually, you will reach your glacier camp, where you will stay overnight. There you will also have access to fat bikes and will be able to go on excursions with your expert glacier guide. Your camp will be comfortable yet straightforward but will guarantee you a fantastic adventure. This time of year, you also have a chance to see the northern lights making your stay on the glacier even more enjoyable.

You will be served dinner at the glacier camp and will stay there overnight.

Day 4:

Enjoy breakfast at your private glacier camp.

Today you will be picked up on the glacier by an Airbus H130 helicopter that will take you around to see some amazing locations and remote places.

As one of the quietest helicopters in the skies, the H130 sets thethe standard for tourism operations worldwide. The wide, unobstructedcabin can accommodate the pilot and up to 7 passengers, providingoutstanding visibility through a large wrap-around windscreen andwide windows.

With the open-space cabin, everyone aboard can enjoy spectacular views from their forward-facing seats. Rear passengers are comfortably seated on a raised theatre-style platform.

You will fly over the Skógafoss waterfall with a width of 25 meters (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray, the Waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days (fingers crossed). According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the Waterfall.

You will then fly over the infamous Reynisfjara, a black pebble beach featuring an impressive cliff of regular basalt columns resembling a rocky step pyramid. Underneath, there is a phenomenal cave that has been used as a film location a few times. Out in the sea are the spectacularly shaped basalt sea stacks Reynisdrangar.

Next up is Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon. It is a magnificent and massive canyon, about 100 meters deep and about two kilometers long. The canyon has sheer walls and is somewhat serpentine and narrow.

Continue the flight further east to the Skaftafell national park, where you can see the Svartifoss Waterfall. This narrow 66 feet high Waterfall is located in a horseshoe-shaped gorge and derives its name, ‘Dark waterfall’, from the fact that dark hexagonal basalt columns frame it. These are very pronounced and make for a truly spectacular sight.

Finally, you will arrive at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and Diamond Beach. It used to be covered in thick glacial ice until the 1930’s when the glacier started retreating. The lagoon today measures 7 square miles (20 km2). More than 300 feet of ice still breaks away each year, reshaping the lagoon and filling it with icebergs - causing an alarmingly beautiful sight.

The water is freezing cold and contains a mixture of salt and freshwater, giving it a blue-green color. There is plenty of fish and birdlife by the lagoon and the vast sand area of Breiðamerkursandur, and hundreds of seals stay there in winter.

If conditions allow, you will board a Zodiac by the lagoon and go sailing between the Icebergs and towards the glacier. Who knows if you will see a piece of the glacier calve off! If you prefer to kayak, we can arrange that too. On the way back, you will fly over Landmannalaugar, a nature reserve in the Fjallabak Nature reserve. The area is known for its natural geothermal hot springs and unbelievable landscape.

You will have several landings on your tour to experience the complete remoteness the interiors of Iceland can offer this time of year. Continue on your helicopter back to The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon, where you will stay overnight for the next two nights.

Tonight you will have a wonderful dining experience at Moss Restaurant, one of the finest restaurants in Iceland. A visit to their impressive wine cellar is highly recommended as it is quite the sight.

Overnight at the Retreat at the Blue Lagoon

Day 5:

Breakfast at your hotel.

Today you will explore the Reykjanes peninsula by buggies or ATVs. The tour will start from the Blue Lagoon.

On this tour, you will be guided through all kinds of terrain. You’ll drive through rocky mountain paths towards Mt.Thorbjorn, a dormant sleeping volcano that towers over the Blue lagoon. The journey continues to the one hundred craters of Eldvörp. If you are familiar with the Lord of the Rings movies, you can say you’ve just entered Mordor. The area is full of volcanic craters, and you’ll be able to stop for a short hike to one of them, which has extensive thermal activity within and outside of the crater. You’ll ride alongside the one hundred crater row towards the local hot spring area Gunnuhver exploited by steam vents and mud pools. The mud pools form where steam from boiling geothermal reservoir water emanates and condenses, and mixes with surface water.

The ride continues towards the ocean to see the very cool rock formations of Valahnukar where there are often plenty of high waves offering spectacular views when waves break on the troll-stone looking rocks. You'll also have an overlook to the volcanic island Eldey and the oldest lighthouse in Iceland on that site.

Next, you will ride through a path through a vicious black lava field, a bumpy terrain, and one of Game of Thrones film spots towards the black sandy beach Sandvík where Clint Eastwood filmed the award-winning movie Flags of our fathers based on the battle of Japanese island of Iwo Jima during WW2. A very picture friendly spot, and sometimes you can even see brave surfers riding the waves. Along the way, you will stop for warm drinks and lunch in a picturesque and isolated spot.

You will head into Krísuvík and stop by beautiful lakes in the area and enjoy nature. You're truly in the highlands over there, surrounded by mossy 'n'black hills. There's hardly anyone ever there, so you will feel tucked away in the wilderness away from any human-made distractions. Right by there, you will stop by the famous Seltún hot spring area where over time, solfataras, fumaroles, mud pots, and hot springs have formed, and the soil is colored bright yellow, red, and green hues. Near the geothermal fields are several craters created by the explosions of overheated groundwater. You will return to the Retreat at the Blue Lagoon and enjoy the rest of the afternoon/evening at leisure or head out for more explorations with your guide.

Overnight at the Retreat at the Blue Lagoon.

Day 6:

Breakfast at your hotel

Today your guide will pick you up for a unique caving experience few can match. You will check out of your hotel as you will be taken straight to your jet in Reykjavik after the tour.

You will visit Raufarhólshellir cave, one of the longest and best-known lava tubes in Iceland. A journey into Raufarhólshellir is a unique experience and a great opportunity to witness a volcanic eruption's inner workings as one walks in the path of a lava that flowed during the Leitahraun eruption, which occurred east of the Bláfjöll mountains about 5200 years ago. The front of the cave has been made accessible, but few people know that the cave extends to 1360 meters (4500 ft), which allows the more adventurous travelers to go on an incredible journey deep into the cave all the way to the end of the tunnel where magnificent lava falls, and other natural wonders await in the dark. This is truly an unforgettable experience, full of sights and emotions. The total journey time is about 4 hours, and your guide will serve you a gourmet packed lunch in the cave.

After your tour, you will be driven back to Reykjavik, where you will depart from the domestic airport at a pre-arranged time.
