Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive into Keflavik early morning and pick up your hire car before making your way to the Golden Circle for a day exploring some of Iceland’s most famous locations. Stop for lunch before heading to your accommodation, Stracta Hotel, which will be your home for the next three nights. Here, you will check into your two-bedroom apartment and take some time to relax, with the possibility of aurora sightings in the evening.

Day 2

Today it is time to take a break from driving and head out with our trusted suppliers, Southcoast Adventure. Experience one of their most popular superjeep adventures, including a visit to Thorsmork – a nature reserve in the Icelandic highlands. This is a great opportunity to take in the incredible scenery and learn more about this fascinating country from your knowledgable driver/guide. In the afternoon, relax in the hotel’s sauna and hot tub.

Day 3

After breakfast, take the car for a drive along the beautiful south coast of Iceland, where you will discover famous waterfalls and beaches, including the stunning black sand beaches of Vik. If you need a little warming up, there is a Lava Centre and Lava Show available, for the whole family to learn more about Iceland’s volcanic past and the power of nature.

Day 4

Have a leisurely morning before heading to Reykjavik. If you have booked an evening flight, you can park the car for the day and explore the city before heading back to the airport in the late afternoon. If you want to extend your stay and spend the night in Reykjavik we can easily organise this for you, just ask our team. All of our packages are able to be adapted and tailored to your needs.
