Day 1: Reykjavik. Velkommin to Iceland! Your first stop is the colourful capital where we’ll kick things off with a lip-smacking 3-course Icelandic feast. Get to know your travel buddies over dinner, before discovering Reykjavik’s legendary nightlife together!

Then we’ve got a ‘farm to table’ presentation at Efstidalur, before the awe-inspiring geo-thermal fields of Geysir – wow! Spend the evening relaxing in the rooftop hot tub at Midgard Base Camp.
Day 3: Waterfalls & Reynisfjara beach. Our first slice of Icelandic magic today is the thundering majesty of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Soak up the spectacular views before heading to Reynisfjara beach. Wander down the black sands, check out the crazy rock formations, and remind yourself that you’re not in a fairy-tale! Our home tonight is Skaftafell nature reserve.
Day 4: Vatnajökull National Park. We’ve got ice on the brain today as we head to Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe . Discover the caves and crevasses of Svinafellsjökull (an impressive glacial outlet) or take an optional glacier hike for even more frozen magic. Last stop today is the dinky seaside village of Vik.
Day 5: Reykjanes Peninsula & Reykjavik. Head towards the Reykjanes Peninsula for vast lava fields and volcanoes, then take a soak in the milky waters of the Blue Lagoon (optional). This evening, we’re back in Reykjavik for a modern Icelandic dinner by the harbour followed by a last shot at Reykjavik’s wild nightspots!
Day 6: Trip end. Pack your bags and say your goodbyes. It’s time to travel home with a head filled with glaciers, geysers and folk-tales. Iceland, you’ve been amazing!
