Detailed Description

Let the wildness of Iceland’s landscape and spirit sweep you away on this magical, 8-day adventure. When you arrive in Keflavik Airport, your private transfer will lead you to the helicopter center for an exclusive bird’s eye view of the Golden Circle. Iceland’s wind will invigorate your spirit as you go horseback riding in Dalvík before indulging in a private whale-watching tour. Then, you will experience true relaxation in the geothermal springs before heading to the waterfall of the gods: Godafoss. You will then lay your head down for the night in your luxury property in Husavik.

The following morning, you will conquer the largest glacier in Europe: Vatnajokull. Here, you will experience a breathtaking, 360-degree view of Iceland. Then, you will venture to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon so you can trek along with the black diamonds as the sun catches the ice at just the right moment. Afterward, you will tour the hiking paradise that is Landmannalaugar, which is a hidden gem of Iceland, to feast your eyes upon the psychedelic-colored minerals of rhyolite that litter the hilltops. The next day, you will ferry across the ocean to the Vestmannaeyjar or Western Islands, which is an archipelago that was formed by underwater volcanic eruptions. Here, you can experience the rare opportunity of walking along a dormant volcano before relaxing in your luxurious property in Heimaey.

The following day involves diving deep into the Silfra Fissure, which is one of the most exclusive snorkeling spots in the world and is where the exposed tectonic plates between North America and Eurasia lie. Shortly after, you will experience a peek behind the elemental power of Seljalandsfoss Waterfall before dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Reykjavík and relaxing in your luxurious property for the night. For your last day in Iceland, you can take a moment or two to luxuriate in the healing thermal springs of the Blue Lagoon and watch the northern lights as they dance for your pleasure. Once you have experienced the best of your trip through Iceland, your private transfer will lead you to Keflavik Airport for your trip home.
