Itinerary

    When you arrive in Iceland at Keflavik Airport, your private driver and Deluxe Iceland representative will greet you at the arrival hall and take you to Reykjavik to pick-up your rental car and go through your trip itinerary in detail with you at your hotel. After settling in you will have the rest of the day to explore this northernmost capital city of the world with its abundance of museums, restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.

    You will start the day by heading to the amazing Reykjanes Peninsula to enjoy a hike to the volcanic eruption to see the eruption up close and personal. The new eruption is in Geldingadalur valley, just south of Fagradalsfjall volcano, gleaming lava can be found running in molten rivers and spurting in spectacular jets. The hike will take approximately  1,5 – 2 hours each way, depending on how close you want to get, and the trail is conveniently marked. This is an ideal hike if the weather conditions are good. This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience and should not be missed! After all this head to the Blue Lagoon to soak in geothermal waters in one of the wonders of the world. There you will have access to the Retreat Spa to relax and float in the soothing warm geothermal waters. After enjoying everything that the Blue Lagoon has to offer you will head to Reykjavik.

    On this day you will drive the Golden Circle, which is one of Iceland’s most popular routes. Start the day by visiting Þingvellir National Park, where you will have the chance to walk on a path in the rift valley between the North American and Eurasion tectonic plates. You will then drive to the geothermal area in Haukadalur and see the mighty Geysir and it’s active neighbour, Strokkur which spouts water every few minutes.

     

    Next you will drive to see one of Iceland’s most beautiful waterfalls, Gullfoss( Golden Falls). On your way to Hotel Rangá for the night you can stop at Friðheimar Tomato farm, The theme of Friðheimar cuisine is tomatoes, in many different forms. And that’s not surprising, as four different varieties of tomato are cultivated in the greenhouses where lunch is served among the plants. Unwind and relax at Hotel Rangá for the night.

There you can take time to catch the perfect photo with this amazing waterfall and take 527 steps up to the observation platform above Skógafoss.

A guide will take you on the ice for a hiking tour on Sólheimajökull glacier before heading to your hotel for the night.
