DELUXE | TAILOR-MADE: Discover trendy Reykjavik and the beautiful scenery of the Golden Circle and South Iceland on this 5-Day introductory tour of Iceland. Based in Reykjavik, you’ll experience a taste of the city’s culinary scene before exploring Solheimajokull, the Golden Circle, and the subterranean chambers of Thrihnukagigur Volcano.
Day 1: Reykjavik Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik Hotels
Stay 4-nights in Sandhotel by Kea Hotels, located in centre of Reykhavik. Visit Perlan Museum: Wonders of Iceland, among the top attractions in Reykjavik, and is an interactive, family-friendly museum exhibiting a range of displays, largely focused on Icelandic glaciers, their history and future, the secrets they keep, and how the disappearance of these glaciers is leading to an enormous change for both Iceland itself and around the world.
*The 360 Reykjavik Museum and access to Observation Deck is included in the admission fee.
Day 2: Pearl Tour - Golden Circle, Super Jeep and Snowmobile.
Combine a Super Jeep Adventure with riding a snowmobile on Langjokull glacier, while visiting some of Iceland's most famous and exciting natural wonders.
Your first stop is at Thingvellir National Park, which is one of Iceland's most significant historical sites because it was there that Iceland's first parliament was founded in the year 930 AD. Frm Thingvellir you head along mountain tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring, the one spouting hot spring on Earth after which all other spouting hot springs are named.
From there continue on to Gullfoss ("the Golden waterfall") where your proximity to its edge is so close you can feel the spray of the glacial water on your face.
Next, kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland's nature and go for a snowmobiling tour on Langjokull, Iceland's second largest glacier.

Day 3: Snorkel Between Tectonic Plates
Participants swim in specially made dry suits through the crystal clear water of Silfra, volcanic fissure located in Thingvellir National Park. Although the water in Silfra can go down to 2 C / 35 F our dry suits combined with warm clothing worn underneath makes this adventure possible. You will breathe through snorkels as you float along the fissure where you have an unobstructed view of the landscape beneath the water level. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float along with the lazy current. After an hour of snorkeling you will climb out and on to the riverbank to enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate and some light refreshments.
Day 4: The Lava Falls Adventure Tour
This extreme tour is for adventure seekers and takes you all the way to the end of a volcanic tunnel where magnificent lava falls and other natural monuments await. Truly an unforgettable experience. Good physical condition is recommended for this tour as the group will spend as much as four hours in the tunnel hiking over rough terrain. However, the total tour take approximately five to six hours including hotel pick-up, drop-off and travel. Helmets, headlights, gloves and other specialized equipment will be provided. Hiking boots and warm clothes are recommended and a backpack for water and a snack. Back to the hotel where you say Cheers to Reykjavik and sample six different ales, all paired with traditional Icelandic cuisine, served Tapas-style. In addition to tasting the freshest fish available - caught from the pier just outside the restaurant - you'll also sample free-range Icelandic lamb, a local delicacy. Your host will introduce each beer and course combo while sharing stories about how the locals have managed to survive on this challenging island through the ages, though your host will happily discuss anything under the arctic sun.
An excellent option for guests seeking an introduction to Reykjavik's relatively unknown though surprisingly impressive food and beer scene, this two-hour experience is limited to guests aged 20-years or better. Cheers!
Day 5:Reykjavik to Reykjavik Keflavik Airport VIA Blue Lagoon Private Comfort
