Day 1: Arrival
Arrival in the Land of Fire and Ice
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.
Drive along mystical lava landscapes to the charming village of Hveragerdi for your overnight. This town is perfect for getting to know typical small-town Icelandic culture, but with a unique twist. Hveragerdi is one of the few sites in the world located directly on top of a geothermal area. Because of its many greenhouses heated by hot water from nearby springs, it is often called the “flower village.” There are plenty of outdoor and wellness activities to enjoy here, and a great local restaurant/coffee house culture.
If you arrive earlier in the day, you can take advantage of afternoon and evening activities such as hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking or SuperJeep safaris. Or you might just relax and enjoy a visit to the town’s geothermal pool and having a nice dinner at a cozy restaurant.
Please note check-in for most hotels begins at 14:00 – 16:00 (2:00pm-4:00pm).
Overnight in the Hveragerdi area.
