Itinerary

Your friendly, private driver will greet you at the Keflavik International Airport and drive you to your hotel in the heart of Reykjavik. Enjoy the rest of your arrival day relaxing and exploring the world’s Northernmost capital at your own pace. In the evening you will be picked up at your hotel and taken, via Super Jeep, on a wild hunt for the magical Northern Lights. Your experienced driver and guide will take you to locations where the average tourist does not go, searching for the wonderful spectacle of light and color!
ADD-ON: soak in the thermal waters of the SkyLagoon, a brand-new geothermal spa located just minutes from Reykjavik.

After a great night of sleep you will join a fun tour of Reykjavik where you will learn about the city’s history, culture, attractions and architecture. In the afternoon and evening you will visit the Blue Lagoon, the world’s most famous geothermal spa and Iceland’s hottest attraction (pun intended!). The next day will send you off on an awesome adventure, where you will board a Super Jeep and get in close contact with some of Iceland’s most famous locations along the Golden Circle route. Passing through the historical Þingvellir National Park you will head along the mountain tracks towards the Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss waterfall where your proximity to its edge is such that you can feel the spray of the glacial water on your face.
OPTIONAL ADD-ON: embark on a thrilling, guided snowmobile ride on the Langjökull glacier, Iceland’s second largest.

We leave Reykjavik and travel northeast to the Husafell region, on a drive which typically lasts only a couple of hours. Husafell serves as the gateway to many unique attractions, such as mesmerizingly “painted” lava caves – which you will be visiting on Day 4 and the Silver Circle, a circuit of attractions in West Iceland which is not mentioned as often as its southern counterpart, the Golden Circle, but which is certainly no less interesting. When you travel the Silver Circle, on Day 5, on a private tour, you will see fascinating waterfalls, such as the Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. You will also have the opportunity to soak in the healing waters of the Krauma baths as well as the Husafell Canyon Baths, another geothermal bath not to be missed. On top of that you will discover local gems such as Reykholt and the Settlement Center in Borganes.

After being picked up at your hotel in Reykjavik, your chauffeur will drive you through magnificent landscapes to the Hotel Ranga, a treat in itself. The property offers 51 luxurious rooms, including the renowned continental suites, decorated and themed after the continents. The hotel also hosts its own observatory, with a powerful telescope for your own star-gazing experience during clear Icelandic nights. That same night you will depart the hotel on yet another Northern Lights safari, this time under Southern Iceland skies. Remember: we only work with the most experienced guides!

The following morning you will embark on a very exclusive tour of some of Iceland’s most beautiful areas: the south coast. Discover gorgeous waterfalls, black-sand beaches, amazing rock formations and many other spectacles of nature. After a long and exciting day of unique sightseeing, return to the Ranga for a most relaxing dip in the hot tub right outside your room. Adventure and relaxation at their best.

After a delicious breakfast on day 8 you will be driven back to the Keflavik airport, in total comfort, for your flight back home.

FAQs

Our group tours allow travelers to explore Scandinavian destinations in the company of a very experienced Tour Director and a small group of fellow travelers. Group sizes are limited to 12 travelers and a limited number of departure dates are offered for each tour throughout the year. The Tour Director accompanies the group from beginning to end of the tour and often a private driver and vehicle (luxury mini coach) are also employed for maximum comfort. Additionally, we count on the expertise of several local guides at each of the destinations visited, further enhancing the experience. Our group tours typically include most dinners, in order to better showcase local cuisines, and allow for the exploration of more remote destinations.
