Winter Group Tour of Iceland - Program Overview

Our “Stories” tour series™ presents each Scandinavian destination like a book of endless, fascinating stories. In these books, unlike all other books, the stories are written and rewritten, endlessly. The writer – you – merges their own journey with the country’s traditions and way of life, line by line, experience by experience. Each region is a chapter and each chapter is full of discovery and enrichment. Marvel at the scenery, savor the local cuisine, meet the locals and hear their stories.

In the wintertime version of Stories of Iceland™ you will be immersed in 8 days of local culture & cuisine, multiple geothermal spas (a fantastic experience on cold days) and jaw-dropping landscapes of color and terrain that come together in ways only seen in Iceland. In addition, with every single night of the program you will have a new opportunity to view the Northern Lights, weather permitting. You will travel in the company of a local Tour Director and as part of a group of no more than 12 travelers, as you discover Icelandic winter wonders and the Icelandic way of life. All happens seamlessly, in the most worry-free way possible. New friendships will be formed and wonderful memories will be created.

ITINERARY HIGHLIGHTS

Day 1

SKY LAGOON & KICK-OFF DINNER

After landing at Keflavík Airport, you will travel to Reykjavík and check in to Hotel Borg. Located in the heart of Iceland’s capital city, Hotel Borg offers the best in both style and comfort. Following check-in, connect with your Tour Director before a visit to the Sky Lagoon. Relax in the warm waters of the geothermal lagoon and soak off your jet lag as your gaze upon incredible views of the North Atlantic. End your day with a gourmet kick-off dinner where you will get to know your fellow travelers and taste delicious Icelandic dishes.

Welcome to your dream Icelandic winter vacation!

MEALS INCLUDED: Multi-course dinner

ACCOMMODATION: Hotel Borg

Day 2

DISCOVERING REYKJAVIK

After enjoying a delicious breakfast at your hotel, join a driving tour of Reykjavík, Iceland’s capital. Notable sights include the famous Hallgrímskirkja Church, Harpa Concert Hall and the unique Sun Voyager sculpture. Following your tour, you will have free time to experience the city on your own. As you explore, you will notice that nature is never far from view; peeking between city streets you can spot far-off mountains rising high above the nearby ocean. End your day with a delectable dinner and a drive to view the Northern Lights, if the skies are clear that night. If they are not, don't worry. We will have many other opportunities!

MAIN ATTRACTIONS: Driving tour of Reykjavik; Northern Lights safari

MEALS INCLUDED: Full breakfast & multi-course dinner

ACCOMMODATION: Hotel Borg

Day 3

Secrets of the Golden Circle

Iceland’s Golden Circle is made up of three must-see sights: Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Þingvellir National Park. Nearby, at Friðheimar, you will enjoy a beautiful show with Icelanic horses and some organic, tomato-based delicacies as well. Along your guided tour of the Golden Circle, we will drive to the "Secret Lagoon," another most-welcome, warm geothermal bath on a cold day. Of course, if the Aurora Borealis dance in the skies, we will be ready to admire them. Enjoy a fantastic dinner on your last night in Reykjavik.

MAIN ATTRACTIONS: The Golden Circle Tour with a Friðheimar stop and at the Secret Lagoon

MEALS INCLUDED: Full breakfast & multi-course dinner

ACCOMMODATION: Hotel Borg

Day 4

Silver Circle & Husafell

After breakfast we head north and visit some of the key attractions along the Silver Circle, the less-known, yet no-less-interesting-and-beautiful cousin of the Golden Circle. In this fascinating route you will find Árhver and Vellir, a unique hot-spring area. You will also see gorgeous Icelandic waterfalls, such as Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, explore the town of Reykholt, marvel at the beautiful stone carvings by Páll Guðmundsson and bathe in yet another fantastic geothermal spa: the Krauma Baths. While most travelers only experience the Golden Circle, we ensure that you experience much more of what Iceland has to offer, such as the Silver Circle, as you write your own Icelandic Winter Story. We wrap up the day with a visit to Husafell Church, a gourmet dinner and an overnight at Hotel Husafell. As always, we will be ready to see the Northern Lights if the conditions are favorable.

MAIN ATTRACTIONS:Árhver and Vellir, Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls, the town of Reykholt, Krauma Baths, the stone carvings of Páll Guðmundsson, Husafell Church

Day 5

The Magnificent Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Today we head west to discover one of Iceland's most precious gems: the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Marking your day of discovery will be a number of vantage points unique to the region and uniquely capable of depicting Iceland's natural beauty. You will visit a local goat farm and a horse farm as well, where you will understand this important aspect of Icelandic living, among many other interesting stops along the way. Of course, no visit to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is complete without a stop by Mount Kirkjufell, possibly Iceland's most iconic and photographed site. Our scenic day is concluded with another delicious meal and restful night at Husafell Hotel. Another night is another opportunity to view the Northern Lights.

MAIN ATTRACTIONS: Several scenic stops and photo ops, visits to goat and horse farms, Mount Kirkjufell, Canyon Baths in Husafell

MEALS INCLUDED: Full breakfast & multi-course dinner

Day 6

Lava Caves & Selfoss

Leaving Husafell we head south, well fed from a wonderful breakfast and prepared for a day full of excellent stops. First we visit the inside of a lava cave and learn about the volcanic process which led to its formation. From there we move to the world-class Settlement Center, in Borganes. The Center is a space devoted to recreating Iceland’s earliest days and introducing visitors to one of the best known heroes of the Icelandic Sagas, Egil Skalla-Grimsson. From old to new, we continue moving south and visit the brand-new Selfoss Downtown, a collection of 35 historic buildings, previously damaged by fire or fallen into disrepair, reconstructed to form a unique cultural center. After that we reach our destination for the day, Hotel Ranga. Holding the distinction of being one of Iceland's most unique hotels, it will provide us with a gourmet meal and a great night of sleep. Hotel Ranga offers a great location - away from city lights - for Northern Lights viewing.

MAIN ATTRACTIONS: Lava caves in Husafell, Settlement Center in Borganes, Selfoss new downtown area

MEALS INCLUDED: Full breakfast & multi-course dinner

ACCOMMODATION: Hotel Ranga

Day 7

Waterfalls, Black Sand Beaches & Vik

Every corner of Iceland gains a new shade of beauty in the wintertime, but this transformation is particularly accentuated in the south of the country. Landmarks you find there become particularly magical and mysterious, one could say, at that time of the year. Today you will see several of those landmarks: Selfoss, Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, the town of Vik and Reynisfjara black-sand beach are just a few of them. After an incredibly scenic day, we will be back at Hotel Ranga for another great night of comfort and, weather permitting, another chance of seeing the Aurora Borealis.
