Detailed Description

Iceland is best known for its volcanic activity and vast, icy landscapes, but beneath its fierce exterior beats the warmth of a nation that is waiting to steal your heart. During your stay, you will experience a wide variety of exclusive activities that will be designed to experience the most from this spectacular country. From the moment your plane clears the white clouds above Keflavik Airport, you will feel the elemental power of the country as it draws you in, and once your luggage is collected, your private transfer will lead you to the Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach. Here, you will be introduced to a stunning view of Reykjavik before venturing toward Faxafloi Bay to witness the sunset across the horizon. Afterward, you will dine at the only Michelin-starred restaurant in the country.

As you fly by helicopter around the Golden Circle the following day, you will dive deep into the Silfra Fissure for an unfiltered view of the shifting tectonic plates, which will be absolutely breathtaking. Then, you will hike up Reykjadalur, where you can bask in the geothermal pools with a glass of champagne as the northern lights dance above you. The following day, you will make your way to Thorsmork with your experienced guide and learn about the brave Viking, Gunnar, who could not bear to leave the place. From there, you will discover the hidden gem of Gljufrabui before receiving a warm embrace from Svartifoss the following day. You will descend deep into the vast glacier of Vatnajokull and witness the frozen walls of the infamous ice cave that surrounds you.

The next day, you will stride hand-in-hand across the Diamond Beach before riding Icelandic horses across black sand beaches. Then, you will board a high-speed vessel and venture to the open waters in search of orcas before climbing deep into the underworld of an 8,000-year-old lava cave. As you wind your way through the Westfjords, you will be struck by the stunning waterfall of Dynjandi, which is known as the crown jewel of the region. You will then submerge yourselves in a geothermal pool to ease the tension from your tired muscles. As your private transfer leads you to Keflavik Airport after your Icelandic adventure, you will be able to feel the magnetic pull of Iceland tugging at your heart and begging you to stay. Finally, you will return home with all the souvenirs and memories that you can carry with you.
