Detailed Description

A romantic getaway to Iceland is always a good idea. Your 7-day tour will have you following the Ring Road to highlight the remarkable culture and inspiring landscape found across the country. Whether newlyweds or celebrating an anniversary, first-time travelers as a couple or seasoned adventurers, your time in Iceland will fascinate your senses and bring you a great time together. You will arrive at Keflavik International Airport where your private transfer will meet you at baggage claim. You will immediately notice the beauty of the scenery and how spread out all of the inhabitants feel, from homes to roads. The sensational landscape is at the heart of the country as you travel along Highway No. 1 through the Borgarfjordur District.

The scenic drive will have you passing waterfalls and farmland. You will stop at Hraunfossar Waterfalls for a beautiful view before reaching Hvammstangi, and then continuing on to Skagafjordur. The next day, you will travel northeast towards Akureyri, the capital of the north. Spend time horseback riding in the morning for an understanding of the region’s historical connection to horses and the surrounding scenery and then visit the Glaumbaer Folk Museum before settling in Akureyri for the night. Venture next to Godafoss Waterfall for a stunning view of the powerful falls en route to Myvatn, as this region has unforgettable volcanic formations ranging from craters to basalt pillars. You can walk along the trails at Dimmuborgir lava fields and feel like the only two people in the world.

Spend time to enjoy the charms of Husavik village in the morning, and if weather allows, venture out onto the water with a whale watching tour for a marvelous time spent searching for marine life. Make your way to Dettifoss Falls and settle into the town of Egilsstadir in the southeast. Spend the next day watching the landscape change from highlands to glaciers as you reach the town of Hofn. Cruise Jokulsarlon Glacial Lake on a private zodiac tour before crisscrossing the trails of Skaftafell National Park, located at the foot of the highest peak in the country.

The next day will bring you along the lava fields and to a consecrated church that was saved from an 18th-century volcanic eruption. Pass through the village of Vik and soak in the secluded waters of Secret Lagoon before reaching Reykjavik by evening to enjoy a romantic dinner out in the capital city. Conclude as your private transfer will meet you in your hotel lobby. Before reaching Keflavik International Airport, you could have one last excursion in Iceland, this time taking you to the famous Blue Lagoon Spa en route to departing for home.
