Day 1: arrive in Iceland Upon arrival at Keflavik airport, collect your rental car and iDiscover (your personalised iPad-based digital travel companion) before making your way to Hotel Husafell. The 2½ hr drive will take you past Reykjavik, before heading north through spectacular mountain scenery and the tunnel under Whale Fjord to reach Borgarfjordur. Check into Hotel Husafell for your three-night stay. In the evening, enjoy a dip in the local geothermal baths and keep watch for the northern lights. Day 2: explore the Husafell area Must-see sites close to Hotel Husafell include the waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafossar, as well as Europe’s most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver. You can also join an optional tour to the Vidgelmir lava tube cave. Overnight at Hotel Husafell and, with luck, another chance to glimpse the elusive aurora borealis. Day 3: Langjokull icecap or Snaefellsnes Peninsula Choose between a day exploring the Langjokull icecap on an optional Into the Glacier tour (approximately four hours) or drive west to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula for independent touring and an optional whale watching boat trip.
Following the Into The Glacier tour, during which you will explore tunnels carved in the ancient blue ice of the glacier, visit Krauma, the new geothermal baths fed by the Deildartunguhver hot spring.
If you choose instead to visit the Snaefellsness Peninsula, allow two hours to drive from Hotel Husafell to Grundarfjordur, the departure point for whale watching boat trips and the location of the beautiful pyramid-shaped peak Kirkjufell. Overnight at Hotel Husafell. Day 4: Golden Circle Check out from Hotel Husafell before returning south towards Reykjavik. Spend the day exploring the Golden Circle, perhaps including some chill-out time at the Secret Lagoon or Laugarvatn Fontana Spa. Overnight at Frost & Fire in Hveragerdi, a small town built around a hot spring field about 45km east of Reykjavik. Day 5: depart Iceland Check out and drive to Keflavik airport for your flight home. If you have an afternoon departure, detour to Reykjavik to browse the city’s museums, galleries and shops, or explore the volcanic landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula.
