Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Nordic climate - May, June and July are the driest months of the year. Mid-June to August is high season, but most highland tours don’t operate until July because of snow. At other times, many tourist facilities outside Reykjavík are closed. For a chance to see the Northern Lights travel between December and April and for whale-watching, the spring and summer are best.

Itinerary

Explore magical Iceland from coast to coast, taking in the iconic highlights of the south before travelling to the captivating north, which boasts an equally impressive offering and allows visitors to get off-the-beaten-track in the great Icelandic wilderness. Discover incredible scenery and spell-binding landscapes throughout Iceland and get under the skin of this fascinating country.

  1. Fly to Reykjavik

  2. Days 1-3: Southern Iceland

    Begin your Icelandic adventure in the south, where geysers, lava fields and waterfalls instantly spring to mind. Unique geological formations are found in abundance, and the ever-changing scenery is simply breathtaking. After soaking in the healing waters of the Blue Lagoon, you'll be driven south to Hotel Ranga, your base while exploring this part of the country.

    Discover the famed south coast with your private guide, where you'll marvel at black sand beaches, thundering waterfalls and fascinating rock formations. Visit the huge Sólheimajökull glacier where you'll have the chance to hike across the ice as you take in the incredible scenery, before returning to Hotel Ranga to sit under the Midnight Sun in the summer or spot the Northern Lights during the winter months.

    Accommodation: Hotel Ranga (2 nights)

  3. Days 3-5: Akureyri

    Following two nights in the south, return north, where the delights of the Golden Circle await. Undoubtedly Iceland's most famous attraction, the Golden Circle is comprised of Thingvellir National Park, the vast Gullfoss waterfall and the geothermal hot springs at the eponymous Geysir. Admire these true natural wonders before flying to Iceland's second city, Akureyri, where your journey through the north begins.

    Next, it's time to head east to the fascinating Lake Myvatn, an almost lunar landscape home to vast craters, mud pools and natural hot springs resulting from repeated volcanic eruptions. Take in the truly unique scenery and look out for the abundant birdlife before you recharge in the geothermal lagoon of the Myvatn Nature Baths and return to Akureyri to relax at the Icelandair Hotel.

    Accommodation: Icelandair Hotel (2 nights)

  4. Days 5-6: Troll Peninsula

    Continue north along the breathtaking Troll Peninsula to Siglo Hotel and Siglufjordur, a charming fishing village on Iceland's north coast, surrounded by spectacular fjords. Here you can spend your time hiking nearby, venture out on a boat to spot whales or simply relax and enjoy exploring this picturesque village. Get to know the traditional Iceland before returning south and spending your final night in the capital city.

    Accommodation: Siglo Hotel (1 night)

  5. Days 6-7: Reykjavik

    You’ll spend your last night in Reykjavik, where you’ll have the chance to explore Iceland’s charming capital city.

Sample a taste of Icelandic fine dining in one of Reykjavik’s superb restaurants and soak up the vibrant atmosphere of this beautiful city.
