What's this trip all about ?

Iceland’s Ring Road is the most definitive Road Trip on the Planet. PERIOD.

At mile 10, Reykjavik is already out of sight. At mile 37, cavernous volcanic craters pass by your window. At mile 75, you confront the base of a large basalt ridge littered with waterfalls. By the time you arrive there, though, you will have run out of superlatives.

This is Iceland’s Highway No. 1 aka The Ring Road, an 830-mile loop around the nation’s perimeter, which means that you get to see almost the whole country in one go. Iceland’s unique geographical location, far north in the Atlantic and directly atop a massive tectonic divide, begets myriad natural wonders: over 100 volcanos, thousands of waterfalls, geysers, geothermal vents, ice caves and glaciers the size of Luxembourg.

It’s all packed so densely on this rock that it’s difficult to drive more than 20 minutes without stopping to gawk.

But I am sure you are aware how prohibitively expensive Iceland is too, which is why we have planned this for you in a way that wont hurt your pocket bad 

Do you think it can get better than this ?

A Road Trip, across probably the most beautiful country in the world, on a budget, where you actually get to see the whole damn country in a week in the summer.

And when we say Road Trip, you know it will never mean a bus packed with tourists.  You will be travelling in 4 WD Vehicles for this trip because the worst thing you can do in Iceland is save money taking a normal car which will be cheaper but can never handle off-roading and off the perfect asphalt roads of Iceland is where the real picture perfect treasures are hidden !!!

This a is a summer road trip. But the weather is a bit unpredictable in Iceland, so you gotta be prepared for sunny/cold/rainy/ windy weather, all in the same week sometimes!

Talk about mood swings 

NOTE: Any driving license in English is valid to drive in Iceland and everyone with a valid license will get to drive on this trip, in turns of course.

Just FYI…This is a Self Drive trip in the summer months but you can join the group even if you don’t drive, we will make sure you are in a car that has enough other people who can drive.

Itinerary

Day 1Reykjavik

Note: This is a Self Drive trip but you can join the group even if you don’t drive, we will make sure you are in a car that has enough other people who can drive.

Welcome to Reykjavik! 

Check In at your Hotel at any time of the day today.

Spend the rest of the  exploring the city and all it has to offer..Galleries, Cafes, Street Art, Night life its all there in Reykjavik.

Day 2Reykjavik

Today we go celebrate Icelandic Summer in the gorgeous Blue Lagoon Thermal Bath and Spa which is on almost everyone’s Bucket list. We spend quality time relaxing in the warm misty waters of the Lagoon, your entry ticket to this expensive but incredible Spa is already taken care of.

The rest of the day is free for you to explore more of Reykjavik and enjoy the various bars and restaurants around downtown reykjavik.

Don’t sleep too late though, tomorrow onwards is Show time! 🙂

Day 3  Akureyri via Western Iceland

 

Start your Iceland Road Trip making the journey towards the northern capital, Akureyri. Along the way, you could stop for some ice cream in Borgarnes (perfect for a summer’s day) before taking a short hike up Grábrók tuff volcano further inland in Borgarfjörður. From the top of the crater, you will have incredible views over the region.

There are so many other attractions en route include the historical site Reykholt, the hot spring Deildartunguhver and the sublime and beautiful waterfall, Hraunfossar (“Lava Falls”). Whilst in the area, it is also highly recommended to check out Hvítserkur rock formation, found just near Hvammstangi.

You will drive most day from Reykjavík to Akureyri while checking out many awesome sights, so be ready for a day filled with driving. Fear not, however, for the scenery along the way makes it all worthwhile.

On the way you could also stop to descend into the lava cave Víðgelmir which was formed in an eruption over a thousand years ago as an optional plan.

When you finally arrive in Akureyri, grab a meal in town and enjoy the city’s nightlife.

Day 4Akureyri, Lake Myvatn and Egilsstaðir

Today, you will head towards Lake Mývatn first.

Whilst on this journey, you will stop off at the stunning Goðafoss waterfall, the Námaskarð geothermal area and the dark volcanic fortress known as Dimmuborgir. Though naturally formed, the lava formations at Dimmuborgir make it appear like some fantastical spooky castle.

After exploring Dimmuborgir and Lake Mývatn, you could stop at Mývatn Nature Baths if you like. These warming baths are open until midnight during the summer, leaving us just enough time for the two-hour drive to Egilsstaðir, the capital of the East. You could also skip the baths, and  make a diversion to Iceland’s most powerful waterfall, Dettifoss.

You will then continue over the Möðrudalsöræfi heights to reach your accommodation for tonight, in the town of Egilsstaðir by the Lögurinn Lake.

Day 5Egilsstadir to South-East Iceland  via Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon

From your overnight base at Egilsstaðir, it is only a short drive to Hallormsstaðaskógur, Iceland’s largest forest and a perfect stop off on your way to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. You will drive through East Iceland while keeping an eye out for Reindeers as this is the only part of the country where they can be found roaming wild.

The main highlight of your day, however, is inarguably the glacier lagoon, Jökulsárlón, and the nearby Diamond which captivates everyone by the enormous glittering icebergs floating down from the glacial tongue out toward the ocean.

From the lagoon, it is a short stroll down to the black beach nearby, called Diamond Beach due to the many icebergs scattered along it. With the Atlantic Ocean’s waves crashing on them, you can expect an incredible view.

You will be staying in a hostel around this area tonight.

Day 6Southeast Iceland to Hella/Hvolsvöllur via Vik and Skaftafell

On Day 6 of your Iceland Road Trip, you could spend further time checking out the glacial lagoon, given the fact that its beauty is transient and ever changing depending on the weather. You could also fit in a boat trip here (optional), but photography and nature enthusiasts will want to take special care looking for the playful seal colonies. After this you will drive towards Skaftafell Nature Reserve.

This is the day when you could go in for an optional but highly recommended glacial hike as it adds an entirely new level of adrenaline and adventure to your trip. It is also the best way to experience a glacier up close in all its glory. From the summits of Vatnajökull, you will have truly magnificent views over the surrounding area.

You will continue to drive along the South Coast enjoying the views of Vatnajökull, finally arriving at the charming town of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. From here, you can also explore the picturesque Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon.

Next along the Ring Road is the fishing village of Vík, which in turn is very close to Reynisdrangar rocks and the black sand beach, Reynisfjara. Be careful whilst exploring this beach, however, as the waves here are strong and unpredictable.

On the final part of your days’ journey, you will stop off at two of the South Coast’s most gorgeous waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, the latter of which can be walked behind to view the landscape around through a veil of falling spring water. Here is just one other location where the Icelandic nature is sure to take your breath away. You will be spending the night in either the town of Hella or the village of Hvolsvöllur.

Day 7 Golden Circle and Reykjavik

One option for starting your day topday is by partaking an optional ice cave tour at Mýrdalsjökull glacier that departs from Vík, where you can actually venture into the frozen, subterranean world of the glacier itself, Otherwise you will continue westward to the famous Golden Circle route where you will be able to catch three of Iceland’s most popular spots in one sweep. On our way to the Golden Circle, there is the option for stopping at the town of Flúðir for a spot of bathing in a Secret Lagoon.

You could then check out Gullfoss on the Golden Circle, a mighty waterfall that demonstrates the sheer power of Iceland’s nature by cascading glacial water 30 metres into the gorge below.

Next along the route is the geothermal valley Haukadalur, home to Iceland’s famous geysers. Though the most famous geyser, Geysir, now lies dormant, its neighbour Strokkur erupts every five minutes or so, guaranteeing you’ll see this spectacle in action.

You then will finish your Golden Circle tour with a visit to Iceland’s largest national park, the UNESCO protected Þingvellir. This is one of the most unique locations in Iceland where you you can see both the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates exposed from the earth.

In between these plates is the world-famous Silfra Fissure, one of the most breathtaking and unique snorkelling and scuba diving location in the world. And this is how you end your spectacular journey on this Iceland Road Trip with a tour where you swim and snorkel between two continents!!

Can u think of a better way to end this already spectacular journey ?

When your time in the park is over, you will drive forty-five minutes to Reykjavík, the capital where you will spend the last night.

Day 8 Fly Back Home From Iceland

Depending on what time your flight back home departs today….

You can always spend the day exploring the city for a spot of last minute souvenir shopping or, perhaps, going on a whale watching tour around the adjacent bay. You could even drive out for a closer look at the Reykjanes Peninsula, exploring the lava fields, geothermal areas and conical volcanoes.

It’s time to head to the airport after that and say goodbye to Iceland with memories and pictures for life 🙂

Important: If there are any changes in the itinerary due to any unforeseen circumstances, the relevant cost for changes will have to be borne individually.
