Adventures of South Iceland - 6 Days
Validity: Till 30th September 2023
Day 1: Keflavik - Hveragerdi
Upon arrival at Keflavik Airport, collect your luggage and go through customs. Collect your rental car at the airport and proceed to your hotel.
Drive along lava landscapes to the charming village of Hveragerdi for your overnight. Hveragerdi is one of the few sites in the world located directly on top of a geothermal area and, because of its many greenhouses heated by hot water from nearby springs, it is often called the “flower village.”
Overnight in the Hveragerdi area.
Today’s Adventure Option: Reykjadalur Hot Spring Hike - If you arrive earlier in the day, go for a hike on the popular Reykjadalur trail. Hike through a colourful valley with steam vents on well-marked trails leading to a hot spring river. Try a hot spring bath. Admission is free for the hiking trail and hot spring bathing.
Day 2: Hveragerdi - Skogafoss - Seljalandsfoss - Reynisfjara Beach - Vik
Breakfast. Follow Road 1 (The Ring Road) along the scenic South Shore route. See the waterfalls, volcanoes, and glaciers. Admire two famous waterfalls: Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss. If skies are clear, you can see the famous volcanoes of Mt. Hekla (last eruption: 2000) and Eyjafjallajokull (last eruption: 2010). South Iceland is also home to Myrdalsjokull, where you can enjoy some guided outdoor activities. Visit Reynisfjara beach with its surreal basalt formations and thundering North Atlantic waves.
Overnight in the Vik area.
Day 3: Vik - Kirkjubaejarklaustur - Vatnajokull National Park - Hofn
Breakfast. Head over massive lava fields created by the 18th century Laki eruption to Vatnajokull National Park, named after the largest glacier in Europe, for amazing views.
Visit the Skaftafell area of the Park. This is a green oasis ringed by glaciers and a popular hiking trail leads to Svartifoss (the Black Falls), framed in dark basalt columns. Nearby is the Glacier Lagoon (Jokulsarlon), where icebergs drift and collide with each other in a lake formed by Vatnajokull glacier. Take an unforgettable amphibian boat tour amid the floating bergs.
The Diamond Beach is a beautiful place to linger and possibly catch a view of seals sunbathing. Head east to Hofn village.
Overnight in the Hofn area.
Day 4: Hofn - Vik - Hvolsvollur
Breakfast. Head back along the Ring Road.
Overnight in the Hella or Hvolsvollur area.
Day 5: Hvolsvollur - Golden Circle - Reykjavik
Breakfast. Today explore the Golden Circle region. Visit the amazing Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir hot spring area. Geysir is an active geothermal field with many bubbling steam vents and spouting hot springs, including the famous Strokkur geyser.
Continue to Thingvellir National Park, site of the ancient Icelandic Viking parliament. Here you can see the meeting point between the North American and Europe continents. Several walking and hiking trails take you to historical points of interest. Head to Reykjavik, and spend the rest of the day enjoying Iceland’s fun capital city.
Overnight in Reykjavik.
Day 6: Reykjavik
Breakfast at your hotel. Drive back to Keflavik International Airport** We recommend departing Reykjavik no later than at least 3 hours before your flight departure. It takes approximately 1 hour to drive to the airport, and check-in will start 2 hours before your departure.
Visit the Blue Lagoon if you did not visit it earlier, en route to the airport if you have time. Allow for at least 2-2.5 hours extra so you’ll have ample time at the lagoon. Your rental car should be returned to the airport service area, located only 2 minutes from the airport building. A shuttle will then transport you to the departure hall.
**Please note that the package price is based on 5 x 24-hour rental days starting at the time of rental. If your flight arrives early on day 1 and departs late on day 6, an additional supplement will be charged unless you choose to return the car in Reykjavik when the 5-day rental is up and use our airport transfer.
