Day 1: Australia –airplane-takeoff – Reykjavik 

Depart Australia today to begin your incredible Iceland adventure!

Day 2: Reykjavik (B)

Welcome to Iceland! Arrive at Reykjavik Keflavík Airport and make your own way to the hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure, allowing you to take your first steps in this fascinating island nation. Once the home of Norsemen and Viking explorers, Iceland has since evolved to become the natural and economic hotspot it is today. Overnight in Hotel Klettur

Day 3: Reykjavik – Golden Circle – Kirkjubæjarklaustur (B,D)

Visit Gullfoss today, 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. After driving along the southcoast we stop at the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is unique in that you can walk behind it and through to the other side. You will also have the chance to visit the majestic and much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall. Dinner included. Overnight at Hotel Núpar.

Day 4: Vík – Skaftafell – Glacier Lagoon – Höfn (B,D)

Today drive to Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland, east of Mt. Reynisfjall in Myrdal. In Vik and the neighbouring coastline and mountains, there is a wealth of contrasts and landscapes renowned for their natural beauty. 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. Before continuing to Höfn, stop at the glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon to enjoy a scenic boat trip on the lagoon itself. Overnight at Hótel Höfn     

Day 5: Höfn – Egilstaðir – Akureyri (B,D)

Leaving Höfn, we head north to Egilsstadir. The first house in Egilsstadir was built in 1944, and since then the town has grown steadily to become the economically thriving centre it is today. Egilsstadir was the site of an ancient assembly, and where criminals were later executed. The headquarters for the State Forestry Service are located here. The country´s largest forest, Hallormstadarskogur, is just a short distance from town to the south. Before departing for Akureyri we stop by Godafoss, another stunning exmaple of scenic waterfalls. Akureyri is the largest town outside Greater Reykjavík. Situated on the inner section of Eyjafjördur fjord, it is an old trading station with the oldest references dating to 1602. Today, Akureyri is still the centre for trade, services and communications in north Iceland. Overnight at Sæluhús

Day 6: Mývatn (B,D)

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, followed by a visit to the bird museum. Among today‘s many highlights are the volcanic area by Krafla, Namaskard with it´s sulphur slopes, boiling mud pools, and finally Dimmuborgir area with dramatic lava formations and pseudo craters by Skutustadir. Overnight at Sæluhús 

Day 7: Tröllaskagi – Siglufjördur – Glaumbaer – Laugarbakki (B,D)

Drive through Tröllaskagi today. Stop at Siglufjörður to see the Herring Museum before visiting the folklore museum Glaumbaer, in one of the best-preserved turf farmhouses in Iceland. Stay near Hvammstangi tonight, where you can enjoy the hot tubs and beautiful views. Overnight at Hótel Laugarbakki

Day 8: Borgarfjörður – Thingvellir – Reykjavík (B)

Borgarfjörður has a lot to offer, starting with a stop by Deildatunguhver, the highest-flow hot spring in Iceland, which is followed by Hraunfoss and Barnafossar waterfalls. Then drive to Thingvellir National Park, 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 significance. Overnight at Hotel Klettur

Day 9: Reykjavík – airplane-takeoffAustralia (B)   

Bid Iceland farewell today as you make your own way to the airport.

Day 10: Australia
