WEST COAST OF ICELAND
Our 4-day trip will begin in Reykjavik, where we’ll pick you up from your hotel or at a nearby pickup point. Then, we’ll head towards the West, where enchanting landscapes of rural Iceland will take your breath away. Have your camera ready at all times as exquisite and unique scenery might sneak up on you at any time. Our first stop of the day will be at a small town called Borgarfjörður, where hot spring Deildartunguhver sprays groundwater at everyone who comes close. Then, we’ll drop by the waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, and you’ll learn the stories behind their names. Both waterfalls are attractive and whimsical in their own way. We’ll cap the day off by seeking out the supernatural Northern Lights phenomenon in the dark sky.
On the second day of our trip, we’ll continue to explore the west of Iceland, in the radiant Snaefellsnes Peninsula, and we’ll start by traversing the ravishing Djúpalónssandur beach. Once home to a thriving fishing village, the cape is now known for its gorgeous black sand and a few ruins from the mid-20th century. Try to spy the antique British trawler Epine that lies lifeless on the shore or the few colossal lifting stones that were once used to test the strength of daring locals. After we’ve explored most of what the Snaefellsnes Peninsula has to offer, we’ll head back to Reykjavik for the night.
SOUTH COAST OF ICELAND
The third day of the trip begins with us paying a visit to the Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls. We’ll explore these wonders of nature from the inside, where remarkable photo opportunities of the waterfalls and surrounding areas await. Remember to bring waterproof clothing for this adventure. Next, we’ll head to Reynisfjara, a world-famous black sand beach with majestic basalt column formations just off the shore, the Reynisdrangar peaks, which, according to the legend were once trolls, petrified one fateful morning when the sunlight touched their skin. We’ll finish the day off with a Northern Lights hunt!
EAST COAST OF ICELAND
Ready for some adrenaline? Our fourth and final day will begin with an enthralling hike in a Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Before the hike, you’ll be provided with the necessary equipment and safety guidelines, to make sure the hike is a delightful experience all around. To make this hike even more sensational, our tour guide will tell you about the lagoon, when and how it was formed, point out the most astonishing icebergs. From here, we’ll have a short walk toward the Diamond Beach. This beach is covered in icebergs, some massive and others minuscule, and the chiaroscuro of crystal on black creates a sort of apocalyptic scene. Plenty of photo opportunities are to be had here!
