Iceland is something of an Instagram favourite and for good reason.
Every turn seems to reveal a new jaw-dropping scene of dramatic landscapes that make for unreal and incredibly picturesque models. So, what if you could visit all these awe-inspiring sites in just five wonderful days?
Day 1 - Reykjavik, Capital of Charm
We’ll begin day 1 by showing you our colourful and charming city Reykjavik. This northernmost capital of the world is a small metropolis full of worldly cuisine, famous landmarks and wonderful nooks and crannies. And it has its own dramatic scenery in the backdrop of Snæfellsjökull glacier to the west, Mt. Esja to the north, Bláfjöll mountains to the west and Reykjanes peninsula to the south.
Day 2 - Iceland’s Famous South Shore
The tour heads off to Iceland’s south shore on day 2 to explore some of Iceland’s most photographed sites (and Hollywood-stars), the very different but equally impressive waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. That’s not all, because a little further along the coast we’ll stop at Reynisfjara, a vast black beach with a dreamlike feel to it, complete with a columnar basalt cave.
Day 3 - Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach
Day 3 continues east along the shoreline to the glorious Skaftafell park with its glacier tongue and incredible scenery, a real holiday favourite among locals for its beauty and tranquillity. Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon has a notoriously difficult name to pronounce, it’s a tongue twister even for Icelanders, but makes up for it with its incredible presence of otherworldly views. But the real star of the show on day three has to be Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Chunks of ice from the glacier tongues above float down this lagoon and wind up on the black beach below, aptly nicknamed the Diamond Beach. This scenery seems more magical than real and a visit to Jökulsárlón is like stepping into a fantasy.
Day 4 - The Best of Iceland
Day 4 ticks the ultimate box of any visit to Iceland, by way of the classic Golden Circle stops. No trip to Iceland is complete without the Golden Circle, made up of three of Iceland’s favourite sites. Thingvellir National Park is not just a geological wonder where two tectonic plates visibly meet, it’s also the site of much of Iceland’s biggest historical events. Gullfoss waterfall is arguably the crown jewel of Iceland’s many waterfalls and standing in its presence is something of a spiritual experience. The geothermal area of Geysir isn’t just home to the huge Geysir (the geyser all the other geysers are named after). The area is dotted with hot springs, some erupting every few minutes, other constantly bubbling and some displaying colours and shapes that seem both unreal and alien.
Day 5 - Home to the Blue Lagoon
Day 5 gets you back to the airport via the Reykjanes peninsula, home to moonlike lava fields and the world-famous Blue Lagoon.
