Day 1:

We board our coach in the afternoon to take us to our overnight stay in Springfield, Missouri. We will be catching a morning flight tomorrow.

Day 2:

Today we will be flying to reach our destination. We know you are excited and it will be hard but try to rest up on the airplane so we can start this once in a lifetime adventure…

Day 3:

Welcome to Iceland! Upon arrival we will be taken to the Blue Lagoon! What better way to start out? We get off the plane into warm, relaxing, blue, milky seawater. Aaahhhhh!!! This geothermal spa is a great start to renew with nature and soak up the scenic beauty. Now that you are relaxed we will go to our hotel in Reykjavík where you spend the first night in Iceland. We provide you with ideas how to explore Iceland’s capital on your own.

Day 4:

Meals: Breakfast / Dinner
After a Reykjavík city tour we will head north from Iceland’s capital to West Iceland, where we are introduced to the Icelandic sagas in the settlement center in Borgarnes. The afternoon is filled with impressive natural spots: Deildartunguhver, one of the most voluminous hot springs in Europe and Hraunfossar, the unique waterfall that drains from under vast lava fields into the river Hvítá. End the day with Icelandic history at the cultural site at Reykholt. Overnight is in West Iceland.

Day 5:

Meals: Breakfast / Dinner
Some days should start with a chance to climb a volcano! Today is your lucky day. We will be climbing a volcano crater in an old lava field in West Iceland. Afterwards we travel through the fertile farmlands and fjord landscapes of Northwest Iceland, also visit the beautiful town of Akureyri, Iceland’s second largest city. We stop at Goðafoss, “the waterfall of the Gods,” before reaching our accommodation in Northeast Iceland where we stay for the next two nights.

Day 6:

Meals: Breakfast / Dinner
The day begins with a 3 hour whale watching cruise from Húsavík (weather permitting). After spotting our whales (hopefully) we leave for our tour of the Lake Mývatn area, considered as one of the most fertile areas in the world so close to the Arctic Circle. The lake’s unique features are shaped by nature – strange lava formations, pseudo craters and attractive bays filled with thousands of birds. We stroll through the lava field of Dimmuborgir and soak at the warm mineral waters of Mývatn Nature Baths before returning to our hotel for our 3 course dinner.

Day 7:

Meals: Breakfast / Dinner
A special smell starts the day as we explore the geothermal hot springs area of Námaskarð and see the impacts of volcanic activity at Krafla. Then we travel to Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall in the northern part of Vatnajökull National Park. From there we head through the uninhabited highlands to East Iceland, where we spend the night.

Day 8:

Meals: Breakfast / Dinner
It’s a day to admire the dramatic fjord landscape and its tiny fishing villages at the end of twisty roads in the East Fjords. This scenic drive is amazing; you will notice one waterfall after another. At the end of the day you will not be able to count how many you have passed by. Soon we see Vatnajökull – Europe’s biggest glacier that is visible all over Southeast Iceland. Getting close to the glacier, we stop for a boat ride among the floating icebergs on the glacial lagoon at Jökulsárlón, this is a WOW! The night is spent near Skaftafell on the southern part of Vatnajökull National Park.

Day 9:

Meals: Breakfast / Dinner
Visit Skaftafell at Vatnajökull National Park, nestled below the glacier and Iceland’s highest mountain, the 2110 meter high Hvannadalshnjúkur. Cross the sandy desert of the south coast, and travel along mountainous cliffs, glaciers and waterfalls. We stroll along the black lava beach and bird cliffs; this is the best chance to see the elusive puffin if they have not left the island yet, near the village of Vík. Iceland’s past comes alive at the Skógar folk museum with its turf houses. Overnight in South Iceland.

Day 10:

Meals: Breakfast
We see classics today. Start with a horse show that introduces the unique qualities of Iceland’s special breed. Golden Circle sights follow: Gullfoss, the beautiful double “Golden Falls”; the active geothermal area of Geysir, where we can see Strokkur “the churn” spout up to 25 meters (70 feet) every five to seven minutes. Next a visit to Þingvellir National Park a place of unique geological interest, where you can see the two continental plates drifting apart. This tops off our day before returning to Reykjavík for the rest of the afternoon and evening. As we say goodbye to our local guide from Iceland, this will be your last chance to get your souvenirs and explore on your own.

Day 11:

We awake this morning with memories of horses, waterfalls, green mountains, icebergs, whales, wondering if it was all a dream. But we will know the wonderful journey we have just taken was real and we can’t wait to get home and show all our friends what treasures Iceland had to offer. Iceland for us will never melt away; it will forever be embedded in our memories.
