Reykjavik (Arrival)

Welcome to Iceland! On arrival at the airport, individual transfer by Flybus shuttle from Keflavik airport to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Upon check in hotel, at own leisure.

Wondering what to do in Reykjavik?
Reykjavík has plenty to offer in entertainment for all ages. Its closeness to nature makes it an ideal destination for outdoor activities. Iceland's 1000 years of history and culture can be explored in the city's many museums. The Reykjavík music and nightlife is buzzing as always. And the local pools might spark an interesting conversation.

Transfer by Flybus Airport shuttle. Pick-up from designated pick-up zone and location to be advised once booking has been made.

Reykjavik - Blue Lagoon - Hella

At 09:30 meet your tour guide and fellow group members and travel to the Reykjanes Peninsula with its hot springs, mountains, bird cliffs, lunar landscapes and fishing villages.
We warm up in the geothermal mineral-rich waters of the famous Blue Lagoon.
In the afternoon we explore Krýsuvík, an area with solfataras, fumaroles, mud pots and hot springs.
Next stop is the charming fishing village of Eyrarbakki with a large number of preserved houses from the period 1890-1920, and therefore a visit is like a journey 100 years back in time. We visit the local maritime and folk museum.
In the evening we reach Hella, a small village in South Iceland, where we stay for three nights in simple cottages. You might take a walk south alongside the riverbank to experience complete solitude and tranquillity.

Hella - Landmannalaugar - Hella

Today we drive the rough unpaved road to Landmannalaugar, an oasis in the barren highlands, surrounded by centre rhyolite mountains.
Group members have the options to explore the area on their own or join the guide for a short hike through a rough lava field and up the slopes with an incredible spectrum of colours.
The highlight is a 90-minute round-trip hike up toward Brenninsteinsalda, the rainbow mountain of Iceland, which is one of the most spectacular volcanic mountains in Landmannalaugar. The name in English translates to “sulphur wave”. It comes from the yellow sulphur spots which have coloured its sides. But there are other colours too: green from copper, black and blue from lava and ashes, red from iron in the earth and white from silica. It could very well be the most colourful mountain in Iceland, and so its picture is often found in books and calendars. The mountain is still “hot” where you can see sizzling sulphur springs and centre at its sides. For this hike, good boots and walking poles are helpful. In Landmannalaugar there is also a natural geothermal stream where you can enjoy a refreshing bath. Have swimwear and towel ready.
On the way back to our accommodation, we stop at the beautiful waterfall Hjálparfoss in Þjórsárdalur valley surrounded by unusual basalt rock formations. Nearby we explore the Viking farm ruins at Stöng, which was completely buried in pumice during one of Mt. Hekla’s bigger eruptions in 1104.
A leisurely hike brings us to Gjáin, a green oasis in an otherwise rocky, barren moon-like landscape. Þjórsárdalur is off-the-beaten-path and is dominated by Mt. Hekla and other volcanoes in the vicinity. Hekla is one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes; over 20 eruptions have occurred since settlement in 874. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell”.

NOTE: In case Landmannalaugar is not accessible during May and June departures, we travel only to Þjórsárdalur valley on that day.

Hella - Golden Circle - Hella

Today, we visit three of Iceland’s most famous spots: Þingvellir National Park, Geyser hot springs, and Gullfoss waterfall.
We start the day at the ancient Viking Parliament area of Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site. The Þingvellir plain is situated on a tectonic-plate boundary where North America and Europe are slowly tearing away from each other. Next stop is at the Geysir geothermal fields with a variety of hot springs and bubbling pools. Gullfoss, “the golden falls”, is a double waterfall that tumbles 34 meters into the Hvítá river originating from the glacier Langjökull. We continue to Skálholt, which is one of Iceland’s most historic and holy places. It was the centre of ecclesiastic power in Iceland for more than 700 years.

Hella - Westman Islands - Vik

A short ferry ride brings us to the Westman Islands, where we explore the town of Heimaey and this extraordinary island by foot and by bus.
The volcanic eruption in 1973 is considered the largest natural disaster in Iceland in recent history. The eruption began on January 23 in the outskirt of the town of Heimaey, the only populated island in the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago. After the evacuation of the 5300 inhabitants, and during the 5 months while the eruption lasted, there was much uncertainty as to whether or not the island could ever be repopulated. During our tour to the Westman Islands, we explore bird cliffs, walk up a volcano crater and visit “Pompeii of the North”, a volcanic excavation project. There you observe a “house” which was dug up from the thick layer of pumice after 40 years. There is also an exhibition about Surtsey Island that was born by volcanic eruptions between 1963-68 and preserved today by UNESCO.
You have the afternoon free to wander around the town of Heimaey, with its birds and signs of recent volcanic eruptions.
We travel with the 4 pm ferry back to the mainland and continue to our accommodation near the village of Vík in South Iceland, where we stay for two nights.

Vik - Vatnajokull Glacier - Vik

Today we travel to Vatnajökull, Europe’s second largest national park, which has Iceland’s highest mountains, an alpine environment, and Europe’s largest glacier.
A 5-kilometre round-trip hike takes us through the national park to Svartifoss waterfall, which is surrounded by impressive basalt columns.
In the afternoon we head over to the famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon for a cruise, sailing between the icebergs of all shapes and sizes, which float in the clear blue water. After the glacial lake experience, there is time to go down to the black sand beach, the so-called Diamond Beach, in case we find icebergs that have floated all the way from the glacier lagoon into the Atlantic Ocean.

Vik - Glacier Hike - Reykjavik

We start the day with a walk along the black lava beach and bird cliffs at Reynisfjara. We see interesting basalt columns, and rock formations called the petrified trolls.
Next, we stop for an easy 1,5 to 2-hour glacier hike in the impressive Sólheimajökulll glacier tongue, suitable for beginners. An experienced glacier guide leads you safely through the icy wonderland of strangely shaped ridges, deep crevasses, enormous water cauldrons and different ice formations.
We continue to the thundering Skógafoss waterfall, which tumbles 62 meters over a rocky scarp, kicking up vast sheets of mist.
Further west we reach the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can follow a slick and wet trail and walk right behind the falls.
Come prepared and bring a raincoat and good boots, as you will get wet! The Best of South Iceland program ends with a short Reykjavík city tour before we reach the hotel in Iceland’s capital.

海德拉 - 兰德曼纳劳卡 - 海德拉

今天,我们将驱车行驶在崎岖不平的土路上前往至兰德曼纳劳卡,这是在贫瘠高原上的绿洲,四周被流纹岩中心的山脉包围。
团员可以选择自己想去探索的地区,当然您也可以加入导游的行列,在粗糙的熔岩地和色彩缤纷的山坡上进行短途徒步旅行。
该亮点最精彩的包括一次九十分钟的往返徒步旅行,目的地是冰岛的彩虹山——Brenninsteinsalda,它是兰德曼纳劳卡最壮观的火山之一。这个名字的英文翻译是“硫波”。它来自于黄色的硫磺斑点,这些硫磺斑点使它的侧面有了颜色。但也有其他颜色如:绿色来自铜,黑色和蓝色来自熔岩和灰烬,红色来自地球上的铁,白色来自二氧化硅。它很可能是冰岛最色彩斑斓的山,因此它的图片经常出现在书籍和日历上。山仍然是“热的”,你可以看到嘶嘶作响的硫磺泉和中心在它的两侧。对于这次徒步旅行,好的靴子和手杖是有帮助的。在兰德曼纳劳卡也有一个天然的地热流,在那里你将可以享受一个清爽的泡浴。请准备好泳衣和毛巾。
在返回酒店的路上,我们将会稍停在Þjórsárdalur山谷里被周围不寻常的玄武岩岩石包围的美丽哈加帕瀑布。在它的附近,我们也可以探索在Stöng的维京农场遗址,于一一零四年海克拉火山爆发时,完全被埋在浮石中。
接着我们可以来一次悠闲的徒步旅行前往Gjain瀑布,看起来像是一个在岩石上的绿色绿洲,荒凉的像月亮一样的景观。Þjorsardalur人迹罕至,主要是被邻近的赫克拉火山和其他火山占据。赫克拉火山是冰岛上最活跃的火山之一;自八七四年人类定居以来,火山就已爆发超过二十次。在中世纪,欧洲人把这座火山称为“通往地狱的大门”。

备注:万一在五月至六月出发的旅客无法到访兰德曼纳劳卡,那天,我们将改成只前往Þjórsárdalur山谷而已。

海德拉 - 韦斯特曼纳群 – 维克

首先,我们来个短暂的船游前往至韦斯特曼纳群岛,在那里我们将步行和乘车探索这个非凡的岛屿和赫马岛上的小镇。
一九七三年的火山喷发被认为是冰岛近代历史上最大的自然灾害。该火山喷发开始于一月二十三日,地点在韦斯特曼纳埃亚尔群岛,是唯一有人居住的赫马岛上小镇的郊区。在疏散了大约五千三百名居民之后,该火山爆发持续五个月,岛上是否还可以重新居住,存在着很大的不确定性。在我们的韦斯特曼纳群之旅中,我们也将探索鸟类悬崖,爬上火山口,参观“北方庞贝”,这是一个火山挖掘项目。在那里你可以看到一座“房子”,它是在事发四十年后从厚厚的浮石层中挖出来的。在那里,还有一个关于叙尔特塞岛的展览,该岛在一九六三年至一九六八年的火山爆发中诞生,至今仍被联合国教科文组织保存。
下午,你将可以自由活动漫步在小镇,欣赏那里的鸟类和最近一次火山爆发后的迹象。
我们将乘坐下午四点的渡轮返回陆地,然后返回位于冰岛南部维克村附近的酒店,我们将在那里住两上晚。

维克 – 冰川徒步 - 雷克雅未克

接着,我们将在令人印象深刻的索尔黑马冰川上进行一个简单的一小时半到两小时的冰川徒步旅行,适合初学者。一位经验丰富的冰川导游将会带领您安全地穿过奇形怪状的山脊,深裂缝,巨大的水锅和不同的冰层的冰冷仙境。
然后,我们继续前往一个六十二米高,不停的在岩石崖上翻滚,激起了大片的薄雾还轰隆隆作响的斯科加瀑布。
继续往西走,我们将抵达一个高且窄的塞里雅兰瀑布,在那里你可以沿着一条光滑潮湿的小道一直走到瀑布后面。
记得准备好雨衣和好的靴子,因为你会被淋湿的!最后,在我们返回冰岛首都的酒店之前,我们将以在冰岛南部最好的项目——短暂的雷克雅未克城市之旅,作为终结。
