Day 1: Bright lights, small city!

Gay city walk, get together toast, Pink Party

Arrival on your own to Reykjavik city.

Check in to the vibrant and very popular Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina and catch up on some sleep before joining a Reykjavík City Walk where we’ll explore the downtown area from top to bottom, visit some of her most famous landmarks and learn about Iceland’s LGBT history over a coffee or drink of your choice.

That night you can join an optional group dinner, followed by a get-together toast for all participants of the tour where you’ll prepare for the queer event of the season, Pink Iceland’s Pink Party, a huge draw for the local community.




Day 2: History lesson and hot tubs

Hot springs, waterfalls, Game of Throne goats and northern lights from a hot tub.

We start the day driving through picturesque Hvalfjordur (Whale Bay) where we'll see the ruins of the fjord's whaling facilities as well as learn about the British occupation of Iceland during WW2.

Next we drive over the Skardsheidi heath to Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring which provides heating for most of the homes and businesses in the area. We nourish our thirst for culture in Reykholt, the home of renowned Icelandic Saga writer and medieval scholar Snorri Sturluson.

Next up is a scenic visit to a duo of exceptionally beautiful and unique waterfalls, called Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, each with a mysterious secret to reveal. On our way to the hotel we stop at the Haafell Goat Farm whose inhabitants are regulars on the hit TV show Game of Thrones.

Day 3: Journey to the Center of the earth, and shark

Stykkishólmur town - Snæfellsnes Peninsula and Glacier - Lava Cave Tube

Get ready for a ‘tour de force’ of a day! With so much to see and experience we will depart early, starting with a visit to Gerduberg, a belt of basalt columns on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The peninsula is often dubbed ‘Little Iceland’ as it provides visitors with a taste of so many geological and natural wonders concentrated in a relatively small area.
After visiting the delightful town of Stykkisholmur we continue our journey to Bjarnarhofn Shark Museum for a taste of fermented shark meat at a quirky museum filled with maritime paraphernalia. Our tour continues with multiple stops where you’ll see black sand and pebble beaches, stunning coastlines, magnificent bird cliffs, charming fishing villages, numerous waterfalls and quite possibly Orca whales and seals.

We’ll visit Vatnshellir Lava Tube Cave and enjoy a picnic in the middle of nowhere. Throughout the day you’ll be aware of the palpable force of the Snæfellsjökull Glacier Volcano, one of Iceland’s most revered spots and the inspiration for Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.

End the day at your hotel.


Day 4: The Crown Jewels and The Rift

Golden Circle - National Park - Geothermal gourmet

We start the day with a visit to Þórufoss Waterfall followed by a Golden Circle tour which showcases a trio of celebrated natural attractions including the dramatic Gullfoss waterfall and the geothermal fields of Geysir Hot Spring Area alive with boiling mud pits, steam vents, and exploding geysers. The crown jewel of the Golden Circle is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where Viking settlers established the world’s oldest parliament. The National Park is also home to one of only two places in the country where you can see the mid-Atlantic Ridge where the North American and Eurasian continental tectonic plates meet.

The area we cover on this day is often called the ‘bread-basket’ of Iceland due it’s fertile countryside and abundance of natural energy. During the Golden Circle we’ll stop at the Efstidalur Organic Farm for a locally sourced lunch and later that same day we’ll stop at a farm where, with the help of geothermal energy, organic tomatoes are grown year-round. What better place to enjoy a tomato schnapps the end of a rewarding day?

 Our journey continues to Hveragerdi, the charming gateway town to South Iceland set in a highly active geothermal area where pillars of steam rise up from the ground. Hveragerdi has the highest concentration of greenhouses in Iceland where residents provide the country with much of its home grown produce, including exotic varieties like papaya and banana. In the evenings greenhouses light up giving the town of Hveragerdi a distinctive glow.

We overnight at the aptly named Frost and Fire Hotel in the hills above Hveragerdi, next to a river named Varma, or Warm River, due to the geothermal vents in the riverbed. While the river will probably be too cold to brave you’ll be able to warm up in one of the hotels riverside hot tubs, or steambath.

Day 5: Time to say goodbye. “The Blues” Lagoon.

Reykjanes – Blue Lagoon – Departure 

All good things come to an end, but we make sure your last day of the tour is just as spectacular as the ones preceding it. Traveling along the breathtaking coast of Reykjanes Peninsula we visit Strandarkirkja, a small wooden church popularly believed to radiate special powers for increased luck and success. The area offers amazing views of the turbulent ocean meeting with volcanic rocks and black sands, and usually a few seals dotted around. 

After one last hot spring field we end our tour with a visit to the world-renowned Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa set in a black lava field filled with pleasantly warm mineral-rich seawater which provides the ultimate interaction and relaxation with Iceland’s raw nature.

Guests will enjoy a sauna with lagoon views, a cozy steam-bath carved into a lava cave, and a warm waterfall which provides an energizing massage. Be on the lookout for white buckets located throughout the lagoon which contain the famous silica-mud, an essential part of the spa experience.

For those leaving on this day we stop by Keflavik International Airport before returning to Reykjavík.
