Your exploration of Iceland begins with a Reykjavík city tour, where you will first get to visit Perlan, a fantastic dome-shaped glass building supported by six massive water tanks, with an impressive water feature that runs from the basement into the atrium. Next, visit the beautiful Höfði House and the Hallgrímskirkja church, whose unique, magnificent structure dominates the skyline, making it visible from every part of the city.

DAY 3 - REYKJAVÍK → GRÁBRÓK CRATER → AKUREYRI (Breakfast)

Kick off the day with an adventure to Grábrók Crater, located on the outskirts of Reykjavík. The largest of three craters in a short volcanic fissure, take on a short climb up to the top of the crater to be rewarded with amazing views of Borgarfjordur and the perfect dome-shaped volcanic cones in the surrounding field. After which, head onwards to Akureyri for a guided sightseeing tour of the small, laidback port city. Enjoy the rest of the evening free at leisure and take the time to admire the picture-perfect scenery.

DAY 4 - AKUREYRI → GOÐAFOSS WATERFALL → LAKE MÝVATN → HVERAFJALL → MÝVATN NATURE BATHS → NORTH ICELAND (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Early birds may wish to opt for an optional whale-watching excursion in the morning to try and get a rare glimpse of these gentle giants of the sea. Thereafter, visit one of the most magnificent waterfalls in all of Iceland, Goðafoss. Feast your eyes upon the magical sight of aqua blue water torrents gushing over falls shaped like a horseshoe, a vision that becomes only more stunning in the evening when the sun sets. The geographical wonder of Lake Mývatn is the next stop, a site brimming with Earth’s natural wonders – from lava fields and rock formations to sulphur springs and dark caves. See the 2500-year-old Hverjfall volcano, and take a dip in the pristine lagoons of the Mývatn Nature Baths for a rejuvenating soak (towel rental and entrance included). As darkness falls, have a restful night at a countryside resort in the north of Iceland.

DAY 5 - NORTH ICELAND → DETTIFOSS WATERFALL → ÁSBYRGI CANYON → EGILSSTAÐIR (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Often referred as ‘The Beast’ as compared to ‘The Beauty’ of Goðafoss, Dettifoss waterfall in Vatnajökull National Park is your first destination of the day. Prepare to be blown away by the sheer size and wild power of this majestic falls, coloured a misty grey due to the rich sediments of the Vatnajökull glacier. Capture stunning photos at the vast landscape of Ásbyrgi canyon before we journey on to east Iceland for a night’s stay.

DAY 6 - EGILSSTADIR ¨ JOKULSARLON ¨ SKAFTAFELL AREA (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Make your way to Jökulsárlón, Iceland’s famous glacial lagoon filled with floating icebergs. Venture into the deepest lake of Iceland on a thrilling boat excursion that brings you to sail among the huge icebergs that break off from the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. Get a taste of the 1000-year-old ice, and if Lady Luck is on your side, you may catch sight of seals zipping through the icy waters. Movie buffs may get a kick out of this tour as this beautiful lake has starred in Hollywood blockbusters like A View to Kill, Die Another Day, Tomb Raider and Batman Begins. Proceed on to Skaftafell, where we will stop for some photos of the picturesque scenery before we settle for the night in the Skaftafell area.

Witness the magic of nature in the form of Reynisfjara Beach’s famous basalt columns that stacks up into the shape of a pyramid as you stroll along the black sandy shores. Then, continue on to view the impressive Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls found in the south region. Make a pit stop at the Eyjafjallajökull Visitor Centre before driving back to Reykjavík where you will stay for the night.

DAY 8 - REYKJAVÍK → GOLDEN CIRCLE TOUR → BLUE LAGOON → REYKJAVÍK (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Embark on Iceland’s classic sightseeing tour – the Golden Circle – to discover some of the most spectacular scenery and historic sites in Iceland. The first stop will be at Thingvellir National Park, a place of historical significance and geological interest.
You can also visit the Althing, an open-air assembly in the park where Iceland’s oldest existing parliament first assembled in 930 AD. Next, admire Iceland’s most popular waterfall, the Gullfoss, and if you’re lucky, you may even be able to catch sight of a
rainbow arching over the tumbling waters flowing into the deep gorge. Continue on to the nearby geothermal area, a site bubbling with activity and an abundance of hot springs. Here, you will be able to view the lively Strokkur geyser which spouts water 30
metres into the air every 15 minutes. Last but not least, go for a soak in the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, famous for its healing mineral-rich waters surrounded by jet-black basalt lava.
