Upon arrival at the Keflavík Airport, relax and know you'll be taken care of as a member of our staff will be waiting to personally welcome you.

Then, sit back and enjoy the drive through the rugged lava fields of the Reykjanes Peninsula to Reykjavik (approximately one hour). In the evening, head out with your new crew of travel buddies for a gala welcome dinner, and toast to your Icelandic adventure!
This morning, we’ll take a city tour of the greater Reykjavík area with a local driver and guide, and take in all the sights.

On our route: the Presidential Residence at Bessastaðir, the Hallgrímskirkja church (head to the top of the tower for a bird’s-eye view of the city’s colorful rooftops), and Perlan (‘The Pearl’) which is one of Reykjavik's most famous buildings. Built above a geothermal spring, it supplies much of the city’s hot water. It is also topped by a huge glass dome, out of which you’ll see a sweeping 360-degree panorama of Reykjavik, deep-blue ocean and volcanic mountains.

We’ll also visit Hafnafjörður, a fishing town and home to a population of around 26,500 people: plus an undisclosed number of elves or ‘hidden people.’ Yep, you read that right. 54% of Icelanders either believe in them or say it’s possible they exist and roads have even been diverted around boulders where the elves supposedly reside. #Protip: You can pick up a Hidden Worlds Map at the Information Centre in the Town Hall to help you locate elf rock homes. Keep an eye out for them!

In the afternoon: we’ll head to the Blue Lagoon for a long hot soak in this world-famous, bright blue natural geothermal spa, the perfect way to end a day in Iceland. Put on a silica mask, grab a drink of your choice and sink into the steamy, milky blue water and spend a couple hours in pure relaxation mode.

Today we’ll see some of the most spectacular natural marvels of the world on a guided bus tour around the classic “Golden Circle” route in South Iceland.

The highlights of our route: Þingvellir National Park. Surrounded by mountains and encompasses a vast lava plain of green moss and wildflowers, it’s a UNESCO World heritage site as well as a filming location for ‘Game Of Thrones.

Next up: the Gullfoss waterfall, where the Hvita River drops 96 feet in two voluminous cascades. Then, two geysers: the aptly named but unreliable Geysir and then Strokkur which erupts water to heights of up to 20 metres every 4-8 minutes.

When we return to Reykjavik, you will also visit the Skálholt church, the ancient seat of the Icelandic bishops, and stop by Hveragerði, the hot spring capital of the world.

Then gear up for a truly unique Icelandic experience: riding Iceland’s iconic horses in a countryside farm for an hour. Sure-footed, strong and with a friendly disposition, they are a delight to ride and will heighten the experience of riding through the landscape. Only in Iceland!
After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll set off on a tour along the southern coast of Iceland all the way to the village of Vík and back.

Along the way we’ll see the 40m high Seljalandsfoss waterfall. If it’s a sunny day, rainbows form through the mist clouds that rise above the gushing water, creating an Instagram-worthy shot. There’s also a pathway leading behind the waterfall so you’ll have the chance to see Seljalandsfoss from a rare perspective – from within; there's no better way to get close to the raw power of Icelandic nature (Note: The spray from the waterfalls will get you wet, so make sure you carry a raincoat to stay dry).

At Vík, Iceland’s southernmost village, get black volcanic sand in between your toes at the beach and marvel at the dramatic Dyrhólaey and Reynisdrangar rock formations out at sea.

The last stop before we head back to Reykjavik is the graceful, 60 meters high Skógafoss waterfall.

You’re free to head out for dinner in the city. Recommended: if you’re starting to feel a little homesick for Indian food, we suggest you head to Austur-Indiafjelagid, the world’s northernmost Indian restaurant.
Today you’re free to enjoy an entire day of ‘me time’. Here are our recommendations of things to do:

If you feel like an adrenaline adventure, head to the Silfra frissure in Lake Þingvellir. Here, you can dive into the crack between the North American and Eurasian continental tectonic plates. How many other people do you know who can claim to have done the same?

Or, choose a once-in- a-lifetime adventure, exploring Iceland’s most recent attraction: a man-made Glacier Tunnel, located on Europe’s second largest glacier, Langjokull. Not only will you explore the area around the glacier and zoom along on top of it in a monster glacier truck, you will also get to make your way deep within the glacier and find yourself in a world of magnificent, stunning blue ice. The duration for this optional tour is 11 hours and the cost is INR 26,000 per person.

If you’re a wildlife aficionado, choose a whale watching tour where you may get a chance to glimpse the planet’s largest animals in their natural habitat. Besides the whales, you may also get an eyeful of iconic Icelandic birds and animals: white-beaked dolphins surfing the waves, Harbour Porpoises at play, and puffins and terns holding court at Faxaflói bay. The cost for the whale-watching tour is INR 9,400 per person and the duration is 3 hours.

In the evening: we’ll meet up for our farewell dinner.
Unfortunately, your holiday is at an end. You’ll be driven to the airport after breakfast. We hope you have a safe flight home!

Superb Choice!
