Day 01 : GOLDEN CIRCLE , ( REYKJAVIK )
You’ll be picked up at 12:00 p.m., making this the perfect tour for those arriving on the day or just like to sleep in. Thingvellir National Park is first on the list. Þingvellir is an amazing site and home to Iceland’s historic parliament, Alþingi, one of the oldest parliaments still existing in the world.
This incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site is also one of the great geological wonders of the world, located in a continental valley where the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates meet. Þingvellir National Park also appeared in the hit TV show Game of Thrones a few times. Once, as the pathway to the Eyrie, the principal stronghold of House Arryn. It also appeared in a later season as the site where Arya and the Hound traveled when riding through Westeros.

Next up, we’ll swing by the famous Geysir Geothermal Area in Haukadalur Valley. The Great Geysir is no longer active, but neighboring Strokkur shoots huge jets of superheated water every eight to ten minutes. This water spectacle shoots up to 25 meters, and sometimes even up to 40 meters. Watching a geyser erupt is one for the books!
For the third stop on the itinerary, you’ll visit the magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall (the Golden Falls). The source of the falls, the river Hvita, originates from the second largest glacier of Langjökull. It roars through the hills and drops 32 meters at Gullfoss. A golden-hued spray surrounds the falls as the vapor catches the sunlight. This is the time to don a raincoat and make a wish if you spot a rainbow!
Afterward, you’ll be dropped off in downtown Reykjavik to grab dinner and some warm layers for our next adventure. You’ll be picked up around 20:30 (8:30 p.m.) at the City Hall for a Northern Lights Tour.
Our guides will drive you out to the ultimate aurora-spotting locations for the evening. They carefully monitor weather and aurora conditions before heading out–so rest assured, you’re in the best possible hands. On your hunt, the guides will tell you stories of these extraordinary natural phenomena. After a long night of glittering lights in the sky, we’ll return to the hotel around midnight.
Day 02 : EXPLORING THE WEST OF ICELAND ( BORGARNES )B
In the morning, you’ll be picked up from your hotel after a hearty breakfast buffet. Your guide will drive you along the scenic west coast of Iceland, imparting stories, fun facts, and legends about the surroundings and sights you’ll see along the way.
Our first stop of the day is in the beautiful Borgarfjöður Valley at Deildartunguhver, the most powerful hot spring in Europe. The hot spring provides 180 L/sec of 100°C hot water, used to heat all the neighboring towns. Witness the powerful nature of Iceland up close.
Next up, we visit the historic site of Reykholt, Icelandic for ‘smoky hill,’ — which should give you an idea of the geothermal activity in the area. The estate is famous as the home of Iceland’s most famous writer and historian, Snorri Sturluson, author of the Prose Edda.
The photogenic waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss are next on our itinerary. Hraunfossar means “lava falls,” and is an elegant shower of rivulets that stream out from the Hallmundarhraun lava field. Learn the tragic legend of the cloudy waters at Barnafoss.
Now we leave the beautiful Borgarfjörður area behind and continue to Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Before we reach our hotel for the night, we’ll stop at the basalt columns at Gerðuberg. These were formed eons ago when hot lava collided against the ice cold ocean. In the evening, if weather prevails, we’ll hunt for the Northern Lights.
Day 03 : SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA, OVERNIGHT ( REYKJAVIK )B
After breakfast at our charming farm, we drive west along the coastline of Snæfellsnes Peninsula. The first stop of the day is the little fishing village of Arnarstapi.
From there, we head to the lava fields, where you have the option (at an extra cost) to venture deep into Vatnshellir Cave. The lava tube cave is around 8,000 years old. If you are not joining the caving part, then the guide will take you walking around the area.
Next, we have a stop at Hellnar for lunch, before we continue to the beautiful Djúpalónssandur Beach. Here we’ll have a short hike on the pebblestone beach and explore the remains of the ship wreckage. On the beach, test your strength by lifting the same stones as the fishermen used to in the old days.
From Djúpalónssandur, we continue our journey around the Snæfellsnes Peninsula to the famous Mt. Kirkjufell, a favorite for photographers. The iconic mountain is also well-known among fans of Game of Thrones. It first appeared as the birthplace of the first White Walker, and later as the arrow-shaped peak beyond the Wall.
“That’s what I saw in the fire. A mountain like an arrowhead.” – Game of Thrones, season 7 episode 6
On our way back to Reykjavík, well try to spot some Northern Lights before we arrive at Reykjavík in the evening. If our luck prevails, it’ll be the perfect ending to cap off our two adventurous days in Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
