Iceland Discovery Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Reykjavik

Whether bathed in 22 hours of sunlight or hidden under a shroud of darkness, Reykjavik always shines with life, creativity, beauty and warmth of character.

Day 2 Hvolsvollur area

The small town of Hvolsvollur lies in a sparse, green valley with snow-capped mountains looming in the distance.

Day 3 Vik

Alive with cliffs full of birds, remarkable black-sand beaches and tumultuous waters, Vik may be small in size but it's big on beauty.

Day 4 Glacier Lagoon

Set on a picturesque harbour, Hofn is on the Ring Road that circles Iceland and is close to Vatnajokull, Europe's biggest glacier.

Day 5 Egilsstadir

Sitting on the banks of the Lagarfljot River and close to Iceland's largest forest, Egilsstadir is a relatively new town that was established in 1947.

Day 6 Lake Myvatn

Active volcanoes, lush wetlands and an abundance of birdlife surround Myvatn, making it an intriguing place to visit due to its unusual landscape.

Day 7 Hrutafjordur

Hrutafjordur is a tiny village in northwest Iceland with a notable church and a stunning locale.

Day 8 Snaefellsnes

Snaefellsnes is both a peninsula brimming with fjords, glaciers, lava fields and sea cliffs, and the setting of Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'.
