Duration

6 days

Come and enjoy the most popular sites in Iceland all at your own pace. Having your own car at your disposal has many perks, but most importantly you have all the time you need to explore and take in Iceland's most spectacular sights. Some of the highlights include routes like the Golden Circle, where you get to experience geothermal Geysers, thundering waterfalls and a faultline where you can jump from one continent to the next. On the south coast you will encounter vast black sand beaches, glacial lagoons, icy vistas and an iceberg or two. And of course, a visit to Iceland is nothing without a dip in the Blue Lagoon where you can relax in the warm healing water. If you want a bit of bustle, then don't worry - you get to explore the young capital Reykjavik with its vibrant culture and wonderful food. On departure, we guarantee you will already be excited to return to Iceland as soon as you can.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
