Day 1: Introductory Tour of Reykjavik City

On your arrival at Reykjavik's Keflavik Airport, you will be met by your chauffeur for your private transfer to the boutique Centrum Hotel in the historic heart of Reykjavik. After some time to relax after your flight, we'll meet the rest of the group for an introductory tour of the city of Reykjavik. Shaped by the energy of the Earth and surrounded by the pure unpolluted energy of nature, this is a city of striking contrasts and understated sophistication. Small corrugated iron houses nestle next to futuristic glass buildings; state-of-the-art facilities lie minutes away from rugged volcanic terrain, and international trends mingle with Icelandic national traditions to create a unique culture where the old embraces the new. The city tour will include Reykjavik's coastline and harbor, the Hofdi House, the Pearl vantage point, the Old Quarter, and the Arbaer Open Air Museum. In the evening, we'll celebrate our new adventure with an elegant welcome dinner, where we will get to know each other and share our expectations for visiting Iceland.

Day 2: The Golden Circle

On our first full day in Iceland, we'll experience an Icelandic classic, the famous Golden Circle, packed with adventure and the marvels of nature. We'll follow the dramatic route which takes in the Gullfoss (Golden Falls) Waterfall, the Geysir geothermal hot springs area, and the Thingvellir National Park, the site of the world's oldest parliament (AD 930) and a place of great geological wonders, where the Eurasian and the American tectonic plates are drifting apart by a couple of inches every year. We'll start the day with a visit to the Icelandic hot springs at Fontana Spa, and end with a visit to the idyllic Friðheimar Greenhouse to learn about the magic behind growing organic tomatoes and cucumbers with the aid of the geothermal heat that Iceland has in abundance.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3: The South Coast

This morning, we'll venture out to tour the South Coast of Iceland, known for its dramatic waterfalls, dormant and active volcanoes, and its black sand beaches. Our first stop will be the fascinating Lava Center, where we'll learn about the ancient and current volcanic activity in Iceland. We'll then continue to the impressive Seljalandsfoss Waterfall to walk behind its curtains of falling water, then to the majestic and much-photographed Skógafoss Waterfall, with its impressively high drop and multiple rainbows. En route to the cinematographic Black Beach, we'll drive past the turf-covered houses near Skogar to appreciate the Icelandic way of life in past centuries. After a traditional Icelandic lunch, we'll explore the spectacular black beaches of the south shore, see the high sea cliffs with puffin nests and the imposing Reynisdrangar rock formations near the infamous Eyjafjallajokull Volcano, and take a walk to the stunning Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4: The Icelandic Horses

Today, we'll get to know the Icelandic Viking Horse, an animal that is unique to the country, as it has been bred in the island's isolation since Iceland was first settled by Norwegian Vikings. We'll spend the morning getting to know and riding the horses, with their characteristic, smooth tolt gait, which makes riding easy and comfortable, even for complete beginners. We'll ride through the moss-covered valleys and the rough lava fields around Lake Rauðavatn, with the beautiful Blafjoll Mountains towering above the horizon, as we admire the otherworldly rock formations, waterfalls, and maybe even spot a troll or two. The afternoon today will be free to explore the city of Reykjavik according to your individual interests.
Meals: Breakfast
Accommodations: Hotel Saga, Reykjavik

Day 5: The Blue Lagoon

Today, we'll get to experience one of the country's signature experiences: a visit to the world-famous Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon's geothermal seawater is a part of the earth's eco cycle, where nature and science work in harmony. The seawater originates 6,562 feet beneath the ground where it is heated by the earth's natural forces, and when this geothermal seawater comes into contact with cooling magmatic intrusions, it captures the earth's minerals, resulting in unique natural elements known for their healing and anti-aging power. After spending some time relaxing at the Blue Lagoon, we'll enjoy a lavish spa lunch overlooking the surreal landscape surrounding the lagoon, and after returning to the center of Reykjavik, the afternoon will be free for individual exploration of the city.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Accommodations: Hotel Saga, Reykjavik

Day 6: Reykjavik to Akureyri

After a hearty Icelandic breakfast, we'll leave the cosmopolitan Reykjavik to travel to the True North of Iceland. We'll journey along the famous Route 1, following the photogenic west coast of Iceland, stopping at amazing waterfalls, ice fields, and spectacular vistas of the untamed seas. Our first stop will be the Hraunfossar Waterfall, where we'll admire the spring-fed rivulets streaming over the brim of a lava field, then we'll visit the visually spectacular and geologically puzzling Viðgelmir Cave, inside which humans have lived for more than a thousand years. After lunch at the decadent Krauma Spa, we'll continue our journey north, until arriving at Akureyri's Kea Hotel, our home for the next 3 nights. The hotel has modern design rooms, great service, and all the necessary amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. In the evening, we'll meet for a Scandinavian dinner and talk about our upcoming adventures in Iceland's True North.

Day 7: Lake Myvatn Geothermal Wonders

Today, we'll experience Iceland's raw, natural power visible in its geothermal wonders and surreal rock formations, as we tour Iceland's Geothermal Wonders and some of its most breathtaking sights. Our journey will take us to the shores of Lake Myvatn, where we'll explore the pseudocraters of Skutustadargigar, and take an easy, but spectacular hike up the Hverfjall Volcano to look inside its crater and out for a panoramic view of the lake. After a simple lunch, we'll explore the Dimmuborgir, the Black Forest of dramatic lava formations, rich in folklore and starring the Icelandic trolls. We'll continue to the Namaskard and Hverir geothermal areas to observe the volcanic activity of boiling mud pots and the steam venting from the earth's crust and we'll peek inside the blue Viti crater to see multiple colors compressed inside the rock strata. We'll then travel to see Dettifoss Waterfall, the most powerful waterfall in Europe, located in the Holmatungur Nature Reserve, and to explore Hljodaklettar, the labyrinth of "echoing rocks" created by the spiral basalt formations of arches and canyons. We'll return to the hotel in the late afternoon, and enjoy a relaxing evening at leisure.

Day 8: Husavik

Today, we'll travel even further north, to the picturesque town of Husavik, situated on a fjord, and surrounded by majestic mountains, covered in fresh snow even in summer. Husavik is a busy fishing port and is considered the best place in Europe to see whales, so of course, we'll set out on a Whale Watching Safari to admire the impressive giants playing in the waters of the fjord. On the way back to Akureyri, we'll stop at the imposing Godafoss, Waterfall of the Gods, veiled in old Norse legends, and after getting back in Akureyri, we'll take a stroll through the amazing Botanical Gardens, then further explore the town to admire the beautifully restored timber buildings along Listagil (Arts Gorge), one of the town's streets devoted in its entirety to arts, crafts, and design. In the evening, we'll relax over the farewell dinner at one of Akureyri's finest restaurants.
