Arrival in Iceland

Harpa concert hall
Arrival at Keflavik Airport and transfer to your hotel.
Enjoy Reykjavik City if arrival time allows, and have a stroll through the city central. Iceland's first known settler, Ingólfur Arnarson built his farm where Reykjavík stands today. Reykjavik “Smoky Bay” is named after the steam that rises in columns from the hot springs in the area. There are restaurants, cafés and pubs on every corner in the city central. We can send you recommendations of our favourite places.

Westman Islands

Iceland ProTravel picture
Today we head along Iceland's south coast to Landeyjahöfn harbour. The ferry ride from Bakkafjara to the Westman Islands takes only 30 minutes. Heimaey "Home Island" is the largest in the Westman Islands archipelago. We'll spend the day exploring the island. You will be spotting puffins in Stórhöfði "Great Cape", having a hike up a volcanic crater that erupted in 1973. Visit Eldheimar Museum, built around the remains of the eruption, and explore the flora of the new lava field.
Overnight in Vestman Islands, you are welcome to spend the afternoon exploring more of the island on your own.

Meet with the farmers of Thorvaldseyri Farm, at the foot of the legendary volcano Eyjafjallajokull. The volcano erupted in 2010 causing enormous disruption to air travel across Europe.
We will then continue to the wonderful Skógar Folk Museum. Next you will see Sólheimajökull Glacier and the black Reynisfjara beach. Dinner and overnight in Vik/Kirkjubæjarklaustur area for 2 nights.
