Staying inReykjavík

This morning, you’ll have the chance to actually walk inside an extinct Icelandic volcano. Stand inside the Raufarhólshellir cave, a hollow tube in the rock where lava would once have been rushing by. As you walk through the widest lava cave in Iceland, you’ll notice colorful rock formations in the walls left behind by the eruption 5,200 years ago.

In the afternoon, you’ll return to Reykjavík and have time to continue exploring the city. Why not unwind with a coffee and slice of cake after your expedition?

Staying inReykjavík

Hop in your super jeep in Reykjavík. First, your driver-guide will take you to Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park, the site of Iceland’s Viking-age parliament. It’s also the place where the European and North American tectonic plates are drifting apart.

Then you’ll head to Geysir, where the famous Strokkur geyser erupts 25 meters (80 feet) into the air. Here you can also see other geothermal formations like bubbling hot springs and mud pots.
Next you will round out the Golden Circle section of today’s tour by stopping at Gullfoss, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland.

Now you’ve whetted your appetite for adventure, you’ll head up onto the Langjökull glacier with your driver-guide. Your super jeep will navigate it with ease! Once you reach base camp, you’ll jump onto your 2-person snowmobile. Spend 1 hour exploring this mind-blowing glacial landscape.

Staying inReykjavík

After two action-packed adventure days, today is all about rest and relaxation. Have a leisurely breakfast in Reykjavík before being picked up for your retreat at the Blue Lagoon spa.

The Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s oldest and most famous geothermal spa, tracing its history back to the first public bathing facilities in the area in 1987. The lagoon’s milky blue waters are rich in silica, a mineral that nourishes your skin.

Included with your admission is a towel, silica mud mask, and a drink of your choice from the in-lagoon bar. So just slip into the silky waters and spend the day recharging. It’s also a great place to snap some uniquely Icelandic shots for your Insta!

Staying inReykjavík

On your final full day, you’ll jump into a super jeep and head to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. There you’ll actually get to go under the glacier surface, equipped with crampons and led by your experienced guide.

Kötlujökull, an offshoot of the larger Mýrdalsjökull, creates some of the most spectacular ice caves in Iceland. You’ll get to walk inside these awesome formations, lined with blue, white and black walls of ice.

You’ll also stop at the jaw-dropping Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which you can actually walk behind. And if you’re traveling between 1 February and 15 November, you’ll also stop at its bigger brother Skógafoss just down the road.

Transfer from Reykjavík to Keflavík International Airport (included).

After seeing and feeling Iceland’s majestic beauty for yourself, it’s time to go back home. You’ll leave with unforgettable memories of glaciers, hot springs, and silky blue waters – we bet it won’t be long until you start thinking about coming back!

FAQs about our multi-day trips

Throughout your multi-day trip with Iceland Tours, you’ll be based in the Icelandic capital of Reykjavík or Akureyri the capital of the North. From here, you can join guided tours into the surrounding countryside to soak up the mind-blowing scenery. Your package will include at least one day trip, and depending on the length of your tour package you can opt to add more.

It’s worth bearing in mind that you won’t have the same guide throughout your trip. In fact, on each escorted group day trip from Reykjavík or Akureyri, you’ll get to meet a new guide and new fellow travelers.

What’s more, spending each night in the same accommodation means you don’t need to worry about unpacking and repacking during your trip. It also gives you the chance to experience more of the city’s restaurants, food halls, and bars. And you’ll have time to browse the local shops and visiting the city’s attractions.

When you opt for a multi-day package, you won’t be traveling with the same guide and group throughout your trip. This means that number of fellow travelers you meet on your guided excursions will vary depending on the activity.

For instance, if you’re going on an ice cave tour, your group could include a just a handful people. Meanwhile, a tour of the Golden Circle by bus will often be a larger group as you’ll likely be traveling by coach. And you’ll find evening Northern Lights tours are usually by coach too, although you have the option to upgrade to a small group, super jeep, or boat tour.

Depending on the excursion, your bus could be either a minibus or coach. Most buses will have free onboard Wi-Fi and charging points for your phone. Larger buses also have overhead compartments for stowing your bag and jacket.

It’s good to know that although there’s no restroom on the bus, your guide will make sure to include regular breaks throughout the journey.

Yes, all of these multi-day trips include airport transfers by bus from Keflavík International Airport to Reykjavík on arrival and departure.

On each morning of your trip, you’ll get a tasty continental breakfast at your accommodation. In most places, this is served buffet-style in a communal dining room.

With most packages, lunch and dinner are not included so you’re free to choose from all of the options available. In Reykjavík and Akureyri, you’ll be spoiled for choice when deciding where to eat.

Some festive packages include special meals. Check the ‘What’s included?’ section for the individual package to find out exactly what you’ll get.

If your package features longer day tours, you’ll find that the guide will factor in lunch and restroom stops. But it’s still good to come prepared by packing a few snacks and plenty of water. And if you prefer, you could bring a picnic lunch rather than eat out.

Absolutely! You can customize your package by:

  • Picking your level of accommodation (Budget, Comfort, or Quality)
  • Extending your stay with extra nights in Reykjavík at the start or end of your trip
  • Adding optional activities, such as a food tour or glacier hike

Soon you’ll be able to add these customizations yourself on our website. Until then, just let us know in the ‘Special requests’ field at checkout if you want to add activities or extra days to your trip.
