Day Wise Plan

Day 1: Transfer from Keflavík airport - Reykjavik

  • Arrive at Reykjavik Airport. Make your own way to the hotel. Overnight in Hotel Klettur.

Day 02: Reykjavik-Borgarnes-Akureyri

  • We drive from Reykjavik via tunnel to Borgarnes. On our way to north Iceland we drive over the plateau Holtavorduheidi, dividing south and north Iceland.  In district Skagafjördur we have the chance to visit the folklore museum Glaumbaer, in one of the best-preserved turf farmhouses in Iceland. Before we drive on to the “capital of the north” Akureyri we go to Siglufjörður to visite the Herring Museum.
  • Akureyri is the largest town outside Greater Reykjavík. It is situated on the inner section of Eyjafjördur fjord. It is an old trading station, the oldest references being from 1602. Today, Akureyri is still the centre for trade, services and communications in north Iceland. Stay in Hotel Sæluhús. Dinner in Akureyri.

Day 03: Akureyri-Goðafoss-Myvatn

  • On our way to Myvatn we make a stop by waterfall Godafoss. Myvatn is the fourth-largest lake in Iceland. Frequent lava flows have left the lake very irregular in shape, with many islets and rock formations in it. Few areas offer such a wide spectrum of geological formations, since Mývatn lies on an active volcanic belt where eruptions are frequent, most recently in 1984. There is intense geothermal activity as well, producing mud pools, solfataras and spectacular coloured deposits.
  • We explore the natural beauty of lake Myvatn area. Visit the Bird museum. The highlights are the volcanic area by Krafla, Namaskard with it´s sulphur slopes, boiling mud pool and Dimmuborgir area with dramatic lava formations and pseudo craters by Skutustadir. Overnight and dinner in Fosshotel Mývatn.

Day 04: Akureyri-Fáskúrsfjörður

  • Leaving the North we drive through the highland Plateau Möðrudalsöræfi. On our way we will visit volcanic area by Krafla, Namaskard with it´s sulphur slopes and boiling mud pool. The beautiful Fjords in the East are a beautiful sight while we make our way to Fáskúrsfjörður. There you can see the French Museum (not included). Overnight and dinner at Fosshotel Eastfjords.

Day 05: East fjords - Glacier Lagoon - Skaftafell

  • We drive from Fáskúrsfjörður through Hofn and on to the glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon. There´s we have a boat trip on the lagoon. From there the route takes us along the south coast to Skaftafell. Skaftafell national park was designated one of Iceland´s three national parks in 1967. Skaftafell is a masterpiece of seemingly impossible contrasts of nature. Towering mountains, imposing glaciers, gulches with clear brooks and beautiful waterfalls, birch woods, a wealth of wild flowers and lush vegetation. Then drive to Vik, a village east of Mt. Reynisfjall in Myrdal. It´s the southernmost village in Iceland. In Vik and the neighbouring coastline and mountains, there is a wealth of contrasts and landscapes renowned for their natural beauty. Overnight and dinner in Hótel Skaftafell.

Day 07: Hvollsvöllur – Golden Circle - Reykjavík

  • We visit Gullfoss Waterfall, often described as Iceland´s most beautiful waterfall. Continue to the famous Great Geysir area with many hot springs, mud pools and geysers, of which Strokkur, the world´s most active, is likely to spout several times.
  • Then we drive to Þingvellir National Park (English: Thingvellir), the great lava arena in a rift valley, where the Icelandic parliament met for centuries. In Thingvellir the world´s oldest still-existing national parliament was founded by the Norse settlers in 930 AD. The “Althing” was held here for almost 9 centuries, until 1800. The lake, Thingvallavatn, is the largest natural lake in the country, surrounded by lava flows and lush vegetation. Deep fissures but into the lands, which are sometimes filled with crystal clear water.
  • This is where the North American and European plates meet, perhaps the best example of plate tectonics. It is an area of truly outstanding beauty, as well as historical and geological interesting. Overnight at Hotel Klettur.

Day 08: Transfer Reykjavík - Keflavík airport

  • Bid Iceland farewell today. Make your own way to the airport.
