Day 1 - Reykjavik

Hotel Klettur

Welcome to Iceland! Upon arrival, the eclectic city of Reykjavik is yours to explore — maybe take a dip in the Blue Lagoon or see for yourself what makes Icelandic hot dogs so incredible. Meet your local leader and fellow travelers this evening at a welcome meeting before heading out on the town for your first authentic meal as a group!

Day 2 - Reykjavik

Hotel Klettur

Breakfast Included

Trade the urban landscape for stunning, rugged countryside as we discover Children's Waterfall. This remarkable waterfall —off the beaten path — showcases Iceland's natural beauty. Once at the falls, we learn the legend of how it earned its name before continuing toward the Krauma thermal springs. Here, we have an opportunity to soak in a natural thermal bath. We return to Reykjavik to enjoy the evening.

Day 3 - Hvolsvollur Valley

Hotel Fljotshlid

Breakfast, Dinner Included

Today, the beauty of the Golden Circle awaits. Our first visit is Thingvellir National Park, where we can walk between the European and American tectonic plates. En route to the famed Geysir, we stop at a geothermal bakery for a unique culinary experience — highlighting how the local community harnesses the region's natural resources. Take in the stunning Strokkur Geyser and Old Geyser; our last stop is the iconic Golden Waterfall, Gullfoss. We arrive this evening at our countryside hotel — the perfect location for catching the northern lights!

Day 4 - Kirkjubæjarklaustur

Hotel Klaustur

Breakfast Included

Our adventure takes us south today to Reynisfjara Beach — the most famous black sand beach in Iceland. Here, we learn about the Reynisdrangar sea stacks and see why this beach is an iconic filming location. We continue to the small town of Vik where we experience the power of molten lava — at a safe distance — during a visit to the Icelandic Lava Show. Together, we learn about the immense geothermal energy that Iceland is known for. Tonight, we head out to view the northern lights one more time.

Day 5 - Reykjavik

Hotel Klettur

Breakfast Included

Today we hike up to the hidden waterfalls in Skaftafell Park. The untouched natural beauty will leave you breathless. We return to Reykjavik this afternoon with plenty of time to continue exploring a few more corners of town that may have been missed on the first days. Perhaps join your leader and fellow travelers for a one last dinner to celebrate the end of this journey.
