We lived and worked in Iceland, communicated with the locals, which allowed us to plunge into the culture and customs of the country, to collect unique contacts of local farmers and artisans. We'll show you Iceland the way we love it
Only in this unique journey in just 5 days we will see the wild nature of the island, visit protected places, feel all the "charms" of the northern weather, try the local cuisine, walk on a glacier, see many waterfalls and try hunting Northern lights!

ICELAND TOUR PROGRAM
Gathering a group in Reykjavik. We will devote this day to exploring the city and walking along its cozy streets. Of course, we will try the local cuisine.
Reykjavik is a small but interesting city, unlike other world capitals. A very tiny historical center with wooden houses looks cozy and cute. The wide stone embankment and unusual Scandinavian sculptures give the city contrast and modernity. In our opinion, the most exciting activity will be the search for a variety of graffiti scattered through the streets of Reykjavik.
Winter Reykjavik is especially charming, it is during the cold months that its northern Scandinavian spirit is well felt here.
Those who want to see whales in their habitat can go on a whale safari from the local port.
In the evening we will have dinner at a local restaurant and try the local cuisine. Let's get acquainted and discuss plans for the whole trip.
we'll move to a place to sleep
2 DAY Journey through the golden circle of Iceland
This day will be filled with natural wonders.
The first thing we will go to look at is the crater of the Kerid volcano, yes, this is a real volcano crater, it is not big, but very picturesque. We will go around it in a circle and look inside.
Our next stop is Thingvellir National Park, the only UNESCO site in Iceland. The park is located right between the European and North American tectonic plates and is famous for its natural beauty. This is the best place on the planet to see the edges of these two continents. The Icelandic Parliament, the oldest functioning parliament in the world, the Althingi, was founded here.
After lunch, we will try to catch the huge Geysir geyser, which gave its name to all other similar phenomena on the planet :)
It's mostly dormant now, but the nearby Strokkur Geyser erupts roughly every 5 minutes. This spectacle is truly impressive. The land around is painted in different colors, and hot springs are found at every turn.
The fourth natural wonder of the day is the full-flowing and powerful waterfall Gullfoss. Gullfoss is one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. Its size and power are amazing. You can admire it from several viewing platforms.
After a busy day, we go to our cozy apartments.
p.s. We check the application for the probability of northern lights.
3 DAY We explore the southern coast of Iceland, waterfalls and a glacier, and in the evening we will visit a real lava tunnel!
We will start our day with a visit to the glacier, we will see it very close, so close that you can touch its icy black and blue steep walls. We will have lunch at a local restaurant and continue to explore the south. Next up are the three breathtaking waterfalls Skógafoss, Seljalandsfoss and Nautusagil. These waterfalls are very different and each of them is incredibly beautiful.
Closer to dusk, we will head to the Raufarholscheller lava tunnel. Traveling to Raufarholshellir is a unique experience and a great opportunity to see the volcanic eruptions from the inside, walking along the lava trail formed during the eruption of the Leytahraun volcano (about 5200 years ago) you will feel like real explorers. Every winter, impressive ice sculptures form at the entrance of the cave, making visiting the lava tunnel even more exciting.
We will have dinner at a fish restaurant serving authentic local dishes. p.s. We check the application for the probability of northern lights.
We continue to explore the southern coast of Iceland
This day will give us vivid emotions and beautiful views. We will start our day at the Fjadrargljufur canyon. This place impresses with its sheer cliffs and relic mosses. We will walk along the path above the turbulent river and listen to the sound of water and the songs of the wind. Here you can get to know the real Iceland.
Then we will go to the small village of Vik, where we will have lunch and taste the delicious local cuisine.
Then, we will discover the famous black beaches with basalt columns of Reynisfjara and the sheer cliffs of Dural. Let's feel the salty drops of the ocean on our faces, let's try to lie down in the wind and stand above the abyss.
In the evening we will visit the interactive Lava Museum. This is a small but very interesting project that completely immerses you in the world of volcanology and sends you back to the origins of Iceland. High-tech and modern - this museum will be of interest to both children and adults. We will also be able to see the structure of volcanoes and really feel what it is like to be in the epicenter of the eruption.
We will have dinner at a local restaurant, or cook dinner ourselves at our hotel, in the evening you can relax in the baths with thermal water.
p.s. We check the application for the probability of northern lights. If it's near, let's go hunt
Spa Blue Lagoon and Reykjanes Peninsula
On this day, we will see the Reykjanes peninsula, its geothermal zones, learn the terrible story of the Hun spirit and enjoy the most beautiful views of the raging ocean. After lunch we go to the famous Icelandic resort - the Blue Lagoon. Here we will rest and have a great time. Let's try the local healing white mud and take cool photos.
