Day 2

Reykjavik and Vik

Meet with your driver and head to the famous Strokkur and Gullfoss sites of the Golden Circle. Strokkur is a famous geyser that erupts every 7 minutes and propels a jet of water up to 40 metres in the air. Gullfoss is a mythical waterfall that you can observe from different angles, more spectacular than the others. This 32-meter waterfall sinks into a 70-metre-high canyon.
Continue to the southern coast of Iceland, where you will have the chance to observe the wonderful waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss, which are certainly the most famous in Iceland.
Continue to Vik, the village in the extreme south of Iceland. On the way, we will see the beach of Reynisfjara, famous for its black sand and curious cliffs. In summer, it is also the ideal place to see the puffins, typical birds of Iceland.

Day 3


The first stop is Skaftafell National Park, part of the Vatnajökull National Park. The visit to the park offers the unforgettable spectacle of the glaciers flowing in the plains.
Although surrounded by glaciers, the park is one of the least snow-covered places in Iceland due to the southerly winds. The landscape of Skaftafell is often compared to that of the Alps; up to you to make your opinion. In Skaftafell, the Svartifoss waterfall is known for its magnificent basalt organ formations.
You will then head towards the Jökulsarlon Glacier, part of the largest glacier in Europe.

Day 4


Between Höfn and Egilsstaðir, the fjords shred the south-eastern coast of Iceland. Plunged in a thick mist from the sea or bathed by the shy sun of the north, each of these fjords offers a unique trip. A few small fishing villages stretch between splendid landscapes of steep mountains, sagging abruptly in the multiple fjords.
The sea is never far away, nor are the mountains, the fog almost omnipresent. This is the southeast of the Icelandic coast. The least populated region of Iceland.
A few villages lie along the road. Most are simple and peaceful fishing ports. But some are worth a small stop.

Day 5


The first stop today will be Detifoss, known to be the most powerful waterfall in Europe. Continue to Myvatn Lake in an area of active volcanoes – the Katla volcano is nearby. Volcanic formations, including columns of lava and craters, dominate the lake’s surroundings.

Dimmuborgir (the dark castle) is one of the most unmissable places in this region: it is made up of volcanic caves and rock formations. The avifauna is also very rich in this area.

The next stop will be the falls of God – Godafoss and then continue towards Akureyri.

Day 6


Head south across the land of the Icelandic horse – Skagafjördur. Afterwards, you will discover the two waterfalls nicknamed “lava waterfalls”, Hraunfossar and Barnafossar. Enjoy the view they offer by listening to the saga to which they are linked. Also, visit the hot springs of Deildartunguhver. They are the most powerful hot springs in Europe; they provide the villages of Borgarnes and Akranes with hot water for their central heating. This means that by taking a shower anywhere within a radius of 65km, you use the water of Deildartunguhver.
In the early evening, you reach Borgarnes and have time to explore this charming fishing village.

Iceland is known for its unpredictable and extreme weather conditions. However, the best time to visit Iceland is during the summer months, from June to August. During this time, the weather is relatively mild, with temperatures ranging between 10°C to 15°C. The days are longer, and the sun never truly sets, giving visitors plenty of time to explore the stunning natural beauty that Iceland has to offer. It’s worth noting that even during the summer months, visitors should still expect some rain and wind, so it’s important to pack accordingly. Overall, Iceland’s weather can be challenging, but with the right preparation, visitors can enjoy a truly unforgettable experience in this unique country.

It all depends on what you want to experience and how much time you have for your trip.
