Further trip information

Day 1 - Reykjavik

Here in the magical lands of Iceland we’ll get acquainted over the endless quirk and colourful buildings of Reykjavik. After checking into your hostel and having time to unwind, you’ll unite with the team for a 3-course local dinner at the Geysir Bistro, and a pow wow about the fine days that sit ahead of us.

Day 2 - Reykjavik to Midgard via Golden Circle

After breakfast this morning we're headed to Midgard Base Camp - but loads to see and do on the way as we make our way around the Golden Circle.

First, a stop at the spectacular Thingvellir National Park before heading onto Efstidalur, where we'll enjoy a Farm to Table presentation and get a tantalising taste of the local cuisine. Then we're off to the jaw-dropping geothermal fields of Geysir. In the afternoon we'll take part in a local reforestation program located in the Haukadalur valley (Summer departures only and weather permitting), where we'll get to leave our mark in Iceland by planting 5 trees each, reducing our carbon footprint. The evening offers the opportunity to relax in the rooftop sauna & hot tub at Midgard Base Camp and reflect on an incredible day in this amazing country.

Day 3 - Midgard to Skaftafell

Rise and shine! After breakfast we're headed across the astonishingly beautiful south shore.

It's time for more spectacular waterfalls, the famous Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. After gawping at their thundering beauty, we're headed past the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier to Reynisfjara beach. Talk a walk along the uniquely black sands, admire the crazy rock formations and remind yourself you're still on planet earth.

Day 4 - Skaftafell to Vik

Another day, another included breakfast and another awe-inspiring National Park to head to.

Vatnajökull is named after Europe's largest glacier, and is the largest National Park in western Europe. Cameras at the ready, we'll check out Svinafellsjökull, one of the most beautiful of the glacial outlets emerging from Vatnajökull. Today is your chance to sign up for an optional glacier adventure.

Day 5 - Vik to Reykjavik

After breakfast today we're headed towards the Reykjanes peninsula.

Visit geothermal sites, explore dramatic coastlines and charming villages, or enjoy views over Lake Kleifarvatn with its mesmerising rock formations and legends of mythical creatures. Today you'll have a chance to take a dip in the famous hot springs of the Blue Lagoon.

Day 6 - Reykjavik

Pack your bags back in pretty Reykjavik and try to stay on the high induced by all the wonders we’ve taken in. We’ll say our farewells as the trip wraps up, leaving us with a deep appreciation for this special country.

Covid safety

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:

Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.

Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.

Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.

Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.

Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.

Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.

Healthcare
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.

24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.

It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
