Day 1 Reykjavík | Embark

Iceland’s capital stretches along the edge of a vast bay in the west of the country. For a panoramic view of the lush, green landscapes, make your way to Perlan, the “Pearl of Reykjavík”, a large environmental structure located on ’Oskjuhlið hill. Look out for the signpost showing the way to the evangelical Hallgrímskirkja church, and to the historical center where you can stroll along the Skólavördustígur and the Laugavegur. The little shops in these lively streets entice you to do a bit of shopping. For some relaxation just outside of the city, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Reykjanes peninsula and its famous thermal lagoons of the Blue Lagoon. 

Day 2 Grundarfjorour

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This secret boreal hideaway is located at the foot of the Kirkjufell, on Snaefellsnes peninsula. Arriving by boat means you get a closer view of the lava-stone rock standing like a sentinel at the entrance to the bay; Grundarfjordur lies sheltered behind this cone-shaped rock. A stone’s throw from the jetty, crystal clear waters, tundra and beaches give onto the cerulean waters of Breidafjordur Scattered with its emerald-colored lawns, this town, with its buildings that merge into the surrounding countryside, will most certainly win your favor.

The following optional excursions will be available for an additional charge: Caves, Craters And Coves, Whale Watching, The Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

Day 3 Grimsey

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Grimsey is the northernmost island of Iceland surging from the Arctic ocean, with the Arctic circle running through the island. Its contrasted contours are surprising. From Grímseyjarhreppur, the island’s only town located on the west coast, then heading due south, you can take in the beauty of the hillsides, lushly carpeted with moss and grass. On the rest of the coastline, imposing basalt cliffs inhabited by seabirds stand proud.

Day 4 Akureyri

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The elegant city of Akureyri is located very close to the Arctic circle, tucked away in the Eyjafjordur fjord. It displays a stunning palette of colors: blue waters in the harbor, bronze mountain ash on the squares and brightly-colored houses in the historical center. As you walk along the cobbled streets, you’ll come across rows of terraces with wooden furniture. A vast stairway cut into the hillside leads you up to the emblematic feature of the town, namely the Akureyrarkirkja church. You’ll be amazed by the very beautiful botanical garden made possible by a microclimate.

The following optional excursions will be available for an additional charge: Godafoss And Akureyri, Discover Lake Myvatn, Thermal Bath And Godafoss.

Day 5 Isafjordur

In this very isolated region find the Isafjordur fjord, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in the country, mainly for its relief, forged by many very ancient basaltic flows. The town of Isafjörður, which nestles at the back of its fjord, between imposing mountains, is a delightful little town that lives exclusively from fishing. The capital of the Western fjords, its old wooden houses bear witness to its past as a major fishing port.

The following optional excursions will be available for an additional charge: Maritime Culture And Traditions, Guided Walk On Vigur Island, Icelandic Encounters.

From here, you can also see the bronze landscapes of the mountaintops.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
