Day 3: The South Shore of Iceland

Summary of The Day

Today a two-day exploration of the lovely yet wild south coast begins, the most popular area for sightseeing in Iceland.

First, a pair of enchanting waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is nestled in a cliff which rises out of the hillside.

Then, the infamous Reynisfjara beach is a place of pearly frost and black sand, surrounded by black basalt that forms the cliffs and stands out in the sea in majestic columns while the waves crash on the shore.

After that, you'll visit Skaftafell National Park, a popular hiking and camping area which lies right beside the largest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull. Iceland's highest peak, Hvannadalshnúkur (or Hvannadalshnjúkur), is visible from the hiking trails here, rising to a height of 2110 m (6,922 ft).

Finally, you'll make your way to the astonishing Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where chunks of ice break off the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier in the distance, washed away by meltwater to this lagoon before finally floating out to sea.

The ice is untouched by the UV rays which turn the surfaces blinding white, leaving a pure blue colour on the underside. Seals play on the ice and gulls wheel overhead, creating a lovely display. On the nearby Diamond Beach, chunks of ice wash up on the black sand and lie sparkling in the sun.

You'll spend the night in a cosy country hotel either near Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon or Skaftafell Nature Reserve. Both areas are spectacular locations to hunt for the Northern Lights.

Sightseeing
Seljalandsfoss

Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss

Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss are two waterfalls. You can walk all the way around the former, granting you spectacular views of the cascade and surrounding nature. The second is much wider and with a greater flow, and can be approached right up to where the water is falling. Between these waterfalls, you may see Eyjafjallajökull, the sub-glacial volcano that erupted in 2010.

Day 4: Ice cave

Summary of The Day

Today, you'll hop into a specially modified Superjeep which will take you all the way to your next unique experience: a natural blue ice cave beneath Vatnajökull glacier. There is a short hike through the winter air, so be sure to wear good hiking boots which cover your ankles. No one wants to go caving with damp socks!

These caves are discovered by specialists each autumn, who search the countryside for caves which are both safe to traverse and as beautiful as can be - sheets of transparent blue ice form the walls, while lacy frost and ice sculptures decorate the inside.

These caves change every day, shifting, melting and refreezing with the weather, so no two caves are alike. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience, even if you have been ice caving before.

You'll spend around 45 minutes within the ice cave so make sure that you dress warmly! You'll get a helmet, so you should bring a winter hat that is not too bulky, as it needs to fit under the helmet.

After the breathtaking experience of the ice cave, you'll return to Reykjavík for the evening. You'll make a second stop at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to see how it looks in the midday light. You might also be able to see more seals sunbathing on the icebergs.

On our way back to Reykjavík, your guide will keep his eyes open for the glimmer of Northern Lights and make a stop if they appear.

You'll spend the night in Reykjavik.


Sightseeing
Ice cave

Ice caves

Ice cave of Vatnajökull glacier is a incredible natural features only appear over winter and are weather-reliant, so the chance to enter one is an incredibly rare opportunity. You will be provided with crampons and helmets, before following your guide into this ethereal space.

Day 5: Reykjavik or Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Summary of The Day

Today you have two choices:

Option 1: Quirky and Stylish Reykjavik

Option 2: The Photographer's Paradise in Snaefellsnes Peninsula

You'll spend the night in Reykjavik.

Sightseeing
Reykjavik

Reykjavik

Make the most of your time in the capital by spending the day sightseeing in Reykjavik, from the beautiful Sólfarið ("Sun Voyager") sculpture of a Viking ship which sits on the harbour to the historic parliament buildings just off the main shopping street.

Speaking of shopping, you can stroll the avenue while looking at the wares of the funky shops you find there, or stop at one of our local coffee shops with a special weekly roast. The shops offer everything from Icelandic handicrafts and souvenirs to books, volcanic jewellery and more.

Down by the Old Harbour, you can stop for lunch in one of the many restaurants and then take a whale watching tour around the harbour area. Watch the waves for the telltale swish of a fin. Keep your eyes on the rocks of the little islands just a short distance from the shore, and you'll see many birds nesting.

Snæfellsnes peninsula

Snaefellsnes Peninsula

If you can't get enough of the beautiful Icelandic coast, you may select to tour Snæfellsnes peninsula instead. This impressive assemblage of natural landmarks contains so many features common in Iceland that it is sometimes called "Iceland in Miniature", because you can see it all in one place!

The impressive Snæfellsjökull glacier/volcano was described as the entryway to the centre of the Earth in Jules Verne's famous novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth. The glacier is at the tip of Snæfellsnes peninsula, which you'll explore today. You'll make your way along the north side of the peninsula, along the coastline, past the glacier and then tour the southern rim before returning to Reykjavík.

The iconic mountain Kirkjufell rises before you on your way to Ólafsvík village. Shortly after, you'll admire other quaint fishing villages, such as Rif and Hellissandur.

You'll visit not one but two black sand beaches, at Djúpalónssandur and Dritvík, both important fishing centres in Iceland in previous centuries.

You will continue to Hellnar, another cute little village where you'll enjoy a hike to explore the nearby cliffs, watching seabirds and admiring the beautiful views of the sea and to the glacier of Snæfellsjökull.

If you wish, you can add yet another Northern Lights tour on this evening as well, and spend your night breathing clouds of crisp air into the darkness as you gaze at the skies above. Hopefully, the Aurora forecast will be on your side!

Your arrival time back in Reykjavík is dependent on Northern Lights conditions, but you will return sometime between 9:00 PM and 1:00 AM.

For example, you may enjoy a walk to Hallgrímskirkja church, known for its architecture inspired by the basalt cliffs of Iceland and the statue of famous explorer Leifur Eiríksson in front.
