Detailed Description

Thousands of years ago, the eruptions of volcanoes helped to create a country that is now full of surprising natural features that will amaze you. During your stay, you will experience a wide variety of Iceland’s nooks and crannies, which will deepen your connection with Mother Nature. When you arrive at Keflavik Airport, your private transfer will lead you on an exploration of what will initially appear like the surface of another planet. Sandvik is the black sand beach, where you can spend some of your vacation relaxing. Iceland is full of black sand beaches, and you will have the opportunity to explore the majority of them. You will also be provided with the exclusive opportunity of indulging in a meal at the only Michelin-starred restaurant in the country. Afterward, you will chase the dancing northern lights above you, which will prove to be a moving and evocative experience.

The following day, you will climb to the top of Mt. Esjan, where you will have a panoramic view of fjords, mountains, hot springs, lava fields, and the city of Reykjavik. When the multi-colored hills of the Krysuvik lure you to explore them, you will find yourself in an area full of volcanic vents and hot springs. From there, you will discover all of Iceland’s highlights of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, which is also known as little Iceland. You will walk across the diverse nature on Iceland’s surface to descend into a lava tube that formed over 8,000 years ago. Then, your experienced guide will lead you to the untouched landscapes of the Westfjords, where you will ascend the Icelandic Alps and witness the shadows of the country’s teeth.

Your journey will continue with a dip in a geothermal pool for pure relaxation in nature, before riding horseback across black sand beaches. The following day, you will dive into the Silfra Fissure to witness the shifting tectonic plates between continents, which will prove to be an absolutely moving experience. As you continue to Reynisfjara Beach, you will marvel in wonder at the unique, black sand beaches. Then, when you reach Jokulsarlon, you will be impressed by the lagoon’s immensity before you witness Vatnajokull, which is the largest glacier in Europe. The colorful mountains of Landmannalaugar will steal your heart with their ever-changing hues, and as your private transfer escorts you back to Keflavik Airport, you will feel this adventure into nature has reconnected you to the Earth and yourself in the best way possible.
