DAY 1

Arrival at Reykjavik Keflavik Airport.

You will be transported through the moon-like lava landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula to your accommodation in downtown Reykjavík.

You now have some free time to spend your day soaking in the Nordic atmosphere in the northern-most capital in the world. Reykjavik is a charming city with plenty to do and which is well worth a stop. Walk around the old houses with coloured wooden facades, the port, the museums, vibrant cafés, craft shops and trendy Scandi design stores. The city will keep you busy!

It is also time to meet the rest of the group you will spend the trip with!

Accommodation: Guesthouse

DAY 2

The South Coast of Iceland is filled with breathtaking wonders. You will first see Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a stunning high and narrow cascade that falls over a 62-metre cliff face. Behind the curtain of falling water, a large cave is visible, and in the winter, this majestic waterfall is illuminated by strong lights.

From there, you will visit Skógafoss, a wholly different but equally stunning waterfall. Skógafoss is bigger than Seljalandsfoss and has a more classic shape.  The land underneath the cascade is very flat, which allows visitors to walk right up to the wall of water.

It is then time for some adventure as you hop on a snowmobile and explore the area and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier further! You will get dressed up in an insulated winter over-all and you will step into super-jeeps up the mountain to the snowmobile base for a one-hour guided snowmobile tour.

After this amazing trip, you'll return to the city to unwind and spend another night at your Reykjavík accommodation.

Accommodation: Guesthouse

DAY 3

Today, you'll spend your day admiring Iceland's most visited natural attractions, the Golden Circle! From Reykjavík, you'll be whisked away on a minibus to the first site of the day; the historic Þingvellir National Park where Iceland's parliament was founded over a thousand years ago.

The park is neither located on the Eurasian tectonic plate, nor the North-American one, but in a rift valley between. As the continents drift apart, they tear up the landscape around, causing cracks and fissures in the region.

From there you will head to Geysir geothermal area, home of the erupting hot spring Strokkur. Strokkur spews geothermal water every few minutes, creating a high water column that reaches 15-20 metres in the air. This is a great spot to take pictures!

Your next stop is the Golden Waterfall, and it is a stunning one, especially in winter as the water turns into ice and snow.

In the evening, get ready to chase the Northern Lights! During 4h, you will be taken away from the city, ready to go to the best places to try and spot them.

Accommodation: Guesthouse

DAY 4

Today you will explore the Reykjanes peninsula, where you can discover the volcanic crater of Krísuvík and the large fumaroles (opening in or near volcanos) of Gunnuhver. You will take a walk around the lake Kleifarvatn, one of the deepest in Iceland. On the way, you will observe old lava flows covered with moss.

Finally, you will enjoy a bath in the Geothermal Seawater of the Blue Lagoon, a natural wonder of the volcanic earth. This azure geothermal spa stays warm all year round, and its natural silica mud does wonders for your skin! It's the perfect way to relax as you reach the end of your trip.

It is then time to head back to the city and enjoy your last evening with the group.

Accommodation: Guesthouse

DAY 5

It is now time to say goodbye Reykjavik and head back home. We hope you had an amazing time Girls on Travel!
