Highlights of Iceland

Iceland’s southwest corner has some of its most dramatic natural attractions. At Vík, on the island’s southern tip is Dyrhólaey’s bird cliff promontory, from which black sand beaches fringed with ocean foam stretch as far as the eye can see. Also take in Gullfoss, Geysir and the Pingvellir valley with its faults and fissures at the junction of the North American and Eurasion tectonic plates.

Day 1 UK - Keflavík
Scheduled Icelandair flight to Reykjavík. Transfer on arrival to the nearby Northern Light Inn for overnight with time for a bathe in the Blue Lagoon before dinner.
Day 2 Keflavík Vík
After breakfast, transfer back (15 minutes) to Keflavik to collect your hire car and set off along the South coast towards Vik. Along the way don’t miss Seljalandsfoss behind which you can walk; the naturally heated pool at Seljavellir for a quick dip and Dyrhólaey bird cliffs. Overnight at Dyrhólaey Hotel for 2 nights.
Day 3 Vík - Skaftafell – Jokulsarlon - Vík
Drive along the southeast coast across bridges fording dramatic outwash plains interspersed with black sand beaches and lava fields. Apart from a walk in the Skaftafell Park or a snowmobile on Sólheimajökull, the highlight of the day is undoubtedly Jokulsarlon glacial Lagoon.
Day 4 Vík - Hekla
Drive up to the Geysir area where Strokkur spouts impressively every 5 to 10 minutes, alongside of which there are steaming fumaroles, hot springs and pools, some a dark muddy grey and others a translucent turquoise. Then on to Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, where the glacial river Hvítá plummets 32 metres before twisting and tumbling down a large gorge. Overnight at Hotel Hekla.
Day 5 Hekla - Reykjavík
After breakfast take in Skálholt Cathedral and the Pingvellir Valley and continue to Reykjavik. Return hire car and overnight at Hótel Plaza. 
Day 6 Reykjavík - UK
Time for some last minute shopping before transfer back to Keflavik  and return flight to UK.
