Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader. Hope you’ve packed your spacesuit – this eight-day orbit is about to transport you to another world. Blast off in Reykjavík and discover Iceland’s star attractions: glowing geothermal pools, gobsmacking glaciers and WOW-worthy waterfalls. Then delve deeper into the fascinating folklore, magical myths and traditional treats this one-of-a-kind country has to offer. Ready to REALLY explore the Land of Fire and Ice? We have lift off!

Worth noting…
On this trip, you’ll get two in one – your Trip Leader is also your Driver. Fact: Iceland is mind-blowing. But it’s also rain, snow and wind-blowing. Occasionally, the itinerary may change due to weather conditions. DW – your Trip Leader always has a back-up plan.

Trip itinerary

  1. Reykjavík (Iceland)

    1

    Gobsmacking scenery. Richer-than-rich culture. Bucket-list topping activities. Plus all the weird, whacky and wonderful in between – welcome to Iceland. With these out-of-this-world landscapes, you might as well have landed on the moon. Dump your stuff at the hotel and say halló to your fellow explorers. We may be a mixed bunch but we’re in this together – like it was meant to be. Then? We’ll head to a local haunt to kick things off with an included dinner and tasting (of the local Icelandic beer variety). This is gonna be good.

    What an absolutely incredible trip! Our guide Henry was great, knowledgeable, entertaining and down to earth. Perfect guide! The trip is well thought out, and is the best tour to see the most of this incredible country! The views are everywhere so makes the drive between spots enjoyable. Some plans had to change due to weather but other stuff was organised straight away so wasn't a problem. Honestly was such an amazing trip can't praise it enough! If you're thinking about doing this tour, do it! You will not be dissapointed!

    Just WOW!!! Such an amazing trip, couldn’t recommend it more. Our Guide ‘Henry’ was very knowledgeable, kind and debatably funny, just great. Had so much fun with the group doing the plethora of amazing activities and sites around Iceland. Though I will say there were a couple slow days of driving and little sites but even those days were great just because of Iceland being such a beautiful country. Honestly was the perfect way to experience Iceland, and although was very pricey it was completely worth it!!! :)
