Day 1: Arrival: Arrival in the Land of Fire and Ice
Approximate distance: 100 km / 62 miles
Welcome to the Land of Fire and Ice (and Water, Wind and Earth)! Once you have landed at Keflavik Airport, please pick up your luggage and head through customs. Collect your rental car at the airport and proceed to your hotel.
Frozen 2 Tip: Gale the Wind Spirit often visits Iceland, so be prepared for windy days and dress in layers with warm, wind and rain-proof outerwear.
You’ll be following in the footsteps of Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven. Instead of a reindeer-pulled wagon your rental car takes you along mystical lava landscapes to the charming village of Hveragerdi for your overnight. We recommend taking the south coast road where powerful waves thunder alongside wild black shores. Hveragerdi town is touched by the Fire Spirit—it sits directly on top of a geothermal area and, because of its many greenhouses heated by hot water from nearby springs, it is often called the “flower village.”
You might enjoy a visit to the town’s unique geothermal park or take a guided hiking or biking tour through a bizarre landscape where steam bubbles directly from the ground and you can boil an egg in a hot spring and taste hot-spring baked bread. During the summer you can even enjoy a delicious meal at a restaurant that uses hot spring-fed underground ovens to prepare delicious food.
You can even experience the powers of the Earth Spirits at the town’s Earthquake center where you can try an earthquake simulation.
Overnight in the Hveragerdi area.
Please note check-in for most hotels begins at 14:00 – 16:00 (2:00pm-4:00pm).
