Iceland’s attractions cover every angle – there are chic bars and award-winning restaurants in sleek contrast to the rugged active volcanoes and iceberg-packed glacial lagoons. This five-day escorted tour of the island nation’s southern coast takes in the whole range of these spectacular highlights, easily accessible from Reykjavik. It's also an opportunity to spot the fantastic Northern Lights!

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Reykjavik

    Arrive in Reykjavik and transfer to the Centerhotel Plaza, located in the centre of Iceland’s colourful capital. Consider dining out at one of Reykjavik’s celebrated restaurants – locals rave about Grillmarkaðurinn (Grill Market) and Fiskmarkaðurinn (Fish Market).

    Stay: CenterHotel Plaza, Reykjavik

  • Day 2 » Golden Circle

    Head for the Golden Circle, home to some of Iceland’s most impressive geological sites, including Thingvellir National Park, the famous hot springs at Geysir and the spectacular Gullfoss waterfall. Then visit a local stable and meet a herd of Icelandic horses, before driving on to Hotel Katla. As the sun goes down, look out for the Northern Lights – the hotel is situated in relative isolation, making it a great place to see the famous aurora.

  • Day 3 » Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

    Drive along Iceland’s southern coast to the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, a glacial lake filled with piercing-blue icebergs, calved from the Brei›amerkurjökull glacier. On your way back to Vik you’ll drive through the spectacular Vatnajokull national park, home to one of Europe’s largest glaciers.
