Detailed Description

The adventure of your lifetime waits for you with this extraordinary, 8-day tour of the safest country in the world: Iceland. Upon your arrival in Keflavik Airport, your private transfer will lead you to the helicopter center for a stunning, bird’s eye view of the Golden Circle. The following day involves rafting down the Hvita glacial river to Vestari Jokulsa, where you can warm yourselves with hot chocolate after a day of soaring down exciting rapids. You will then be transferred to Vik, which is the location of the famed US Navy DC plane wreck. This experience will leave you frozen in history and beckons you to explore its broken remains.

The following day, after breakfast, you will be provided with the opportunity to search for the mythical Reynisdrangar on Reynisfjara Beach, where the rock basalt stacks form the shape of a dragon who looks as if they are bending to drink. Then, the Crystal Ice Cave will steal your breath away as you gaze up in wonder at its frozen turquoise walls, making it look as if you are standing under the ocean. You can then allow the wind rustle through your hair as you ride on horseback across lava fields before stopping in Egilsstadir for the night. Perhaps the wily, elusive, and mythical worm monster of Hallormsstadaskogur will make an appearance, and if you can capture a picture, you will be handsomely rewarded.

On your way to Akureyri, a team of Siberian huskies will usher you around Lake Myvatn before you journey to the Icelandic Seal Centre to learn all about seals. The wildness of the Westfjords will beckon you to conquer them. Afterward, you will dine on fresh seafood in Isafjordur. The following day, after breakfast, the lava caves of Vatnshellir will wait for you to plunge into the dark underground and be stunned by its colorful surroundings. Finally, you will culminate your spectacular, 8-day excursion through Iceland by immersing yourself in the healing waters of the Blue Lagoon before your private transfer transfers you to the airport for your departure.
