The city center also boasts a wide array of cozy coffee houses and restaurants that are sure to tempt your taste buds.

Day 2: Golden Circle & the HighlandsAfter your pick up and briefing in Reykjavik, our super jeep adventure begins! As we head east, we’ll make some stops along the famous Golden Circle route, starting at Þingvellir National Park, site of Iceland’s ancient assembly grounds and continental drift. Further along, we’ll see the Strokkur geyser as it spouts super-heated water high into the air at the Geysir geothermal area before paying a visit to the “Golden Waterfall”, Gullfoss.
After lunch, we’ll take our mighty jeeps off the beaten path and up to into the central Highlands through the Þjórsádalur valley. On our way, we’ll stop at Háifoss, one of Iceland’s highest waterfalls, and Þjóðveldisbær, a restored Viking house, before powering into the highlands towards the Landmannalaugar wilderness area. There, you have the unique opportunity to bath in some natural thermal pools before enjoying a hearty barbeque feast prepared by the guide.
Spend the night in a mountain hut in the Landmannalaugar area.
Day 3: Glaciers to LobstersLeaving Landmannalaugar today, our drive takes us past the Hekla volcano and Eyjafjallajökull glacier on our way to the tongue of the Sólheimajökull glacier. There, we’ll slip our feet into crampons for an exhilarating glacier hike and ice climbing excursion. Afterwards, we’ll make stops at the picture-perfect Skógafoss waterfall and the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where we can follow a short walking path behind the cascade. Before returning to Reykjavik, we’ll take a short detour to the coastal village of Eyrarbakki for an exquisite lobster dinner at a seaside restaurant.

Day 4: A Warm Send-offGuests departing on an afternoon flight will have time to relax at the spectacular Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa famous for its healing mineral-rich waters and unique lava surroundings—a perfect way to end your short stopover in Iceland! From the Blue Lagoon, the Flybus will take you onwards to Keflavik Airport.
Note: if your flight is in the morning, we‘ll adjust your itinerary accordingly.
About the mountain hutsThe mountain huts in the Landmannalaugar are simple but cozy. All are heated and hot showers are available in shared men‘s or women‘s bathroom facilities in separate buildings. Guests sleep in single or twin bunk beds in shared dormitories. If a hut is fully booked, single participants may need to share a double bunk with other persons (although this is uncommon).
