What awaits us on the journey?
A place that has become our second home

Only in this unique journey in just 5 days we will see the wild nature of the island, visit protected places, feel all the "charms" of the northern weather, try the local cuisine, walk on a glacier, see many waterfalls and try hunting Northern lights!

PROGRAM

1 DAY

We will start our journey at night!
This is the best time to make your first attempt to see the Northern Lights.

We will move towards the famous black beach and meet the sunrise in the south of the island. We start the day at Fjaðrárgljúfur Gorge. This place impresses with its steep rocks and mosses. We will walk along the path above the noisy river and see how sonorous the waterfalls are. Here you will be able to experience the real Iceland.

Then we will go to the small village of Vik, where we will have lunch and drink coffee. This is where one of the scenes from Game of Thrones was filmed.

We will see the famous black beaches with basalt columns Reynisfjara, and the sheer cliffs of Dyrholaey. Let's feel the salty drops of the ocean on our faces, let's try to lie down in the wind and stand above the abyss. After, we will touch the huge Sólheimajökull glacier.

We will spend the evening in Vic and try the local cuisine at dinner :)

We check the application for the probability of northern lights. If it's nearby, let's chase
2 DAY
Waterfalls, lava tunnel and hot rivers of hveragerði
We start our day with a visit to the three breathtaking waterfalls Skógafoss, Seljalandsfoss, and Nauthúsagil. These nb waterfalls are very different and each of them is incredibly beautiful.

Next, a special adventure awaits us, we will visit a real lava cave! Ready for new experiences? then let's go!

The second half of the day will be special. Iceland without hot springs is not Iceland. Therefore, we will go to the valley of the hot rivers Hveragerdi. A beautiful hike awaits us through colored hills and a geothermal area with geysers and bright clays, at the end of the path we will stop in a cozy place surrounded by high mountains. Here the hot rivers of the valley originate. The most interesting thing is that each of us will decide for himself where to swim, if you like hotter water, you can take a place upstream, where the hot stream connects with the cold, if you want to plunge into refreshing water - go down with the flow.

We will also be able to experience what it is like to swim in a hot river in winter!

Bathing in natural springs always leaves a very pleasant impression, while thermal water relaxes the body and gives good sleep.

A little bit tired but happy, we went to the Hotel.

3 DAY
Traveling on the golden circle of Iceland.
This day will be filled with natural wonders.

The first thing we will go to see will be the Kerið volcano crater, yes, yes, this is a real volcano crater, it is not big, but very picturesque. We will go around it in a circle and look inside.

Our next stop is Þingvellir National Park - the only UNESCO Site in Iceland. The park is located right between the European and North American tectonic plates and is famous for its natural beauty. This is the best place on the planet to see the edges of these two continents. The Icelandic Parliament, the oldest functioning parliament in the world, the Althingi, was founded here. He was in 930 AD. and continues to work in Reykjavik to this day.

After lunch, we will try to catch the huge Geysir geyser, which gave its name to all other similar phenomena on the planet :)

Now it mostly sleeps, but the nearby Strokkur geyser erupts about every 5 minutes. This spectacle is truly impressive. The land around is painted in different colors and hot springs are found at every step.

The fourth natural wonder of the day is the full-flowing and powerful Gullfoss waterfall. Gullfoss is one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. Its size and power are staggering. You can watch it from several viewing platforms.

After a busy day, we will go to hotel.

4 DAY

Blue Lagoon and Reykjavik

Reykjavik is a small but interesting city, unlike other world capitals. A very small historical center with wooden houses looks cozy and cute. The wide, stone embankment and unusual Scandinavian sculptures give the city a contrast. In our opinion, the most exciting activity will be the search for a variety of graffiti scattered throughout the streets of Reykjavik.

We will buy souvenirs, and walk around the city, those who wish can go on a whale safari. After lunch, we go to the famous Icelandic spa - the Blue Lagoon. Here we will relax and have a great time. Let's try the local healing white mud and take cool photos.

We will have dinner at a fish restaurant on the coast. Let's remember the best moments of the trip.

In the evening we will go to the airport.
