Day 1 / Glacier hiking and ice climbing On the first day, we head along the South Coast towards the glaciers. Arriving at Sólheimjökull glacier we, gear up for a glacier hike. Sólheimajökull is a crawling glacier and is, therefore, rugged, cracked and utterly breathtaking. After about an hour of glacier hiking, we stop at some of the many ice walls. There you can, under the supervision of experts, try your hand at climbing the ice. On the way back to Reykjavík we make a short stop at the Skógafoss waterfall.
Day 2 / Golden Circle and rafting On day two, we head out for an amazing visit to the Golden Circle. There we will see the Geysir hot spring area, the Gullfoss waterfall and Þingvellir national park. We dine at Drumbo base camp before we raft the beautiful and exciting Hvítá river. Afterwards, you can relax in the showers and sauna before heading back to Reykjavik.
Day 3 / Whales and the Blue Lagoon We start our last morning with an exploration of the open sea with a whale watching adventure from the Reykjavík downtown harbour. In the afternoon, we head on to the Blue Lagoon for a relaxing afternoon. A perfect end to a great weekend!
