Overview

Highlights (Bullets)

  • On this trip we are travelling in our own private minibus as this allows us to reach some more off the beaten path destinations and gives us flexibility which would not be possible by public transport. And on top of that all our vehicles in Iceland have complimentary Wi-Fi.
  • There's a lot more to Iceland than ice and vikings. Follow the scenic 'Golden Circle', visiting geothermal springs and geysers, the mighty waterfall of Gullfoss and the site of the nation's first parliament at Thingvellir
  • Drive along the island’s spectacular South Shore past the Reynisdrangar Rocks and volcanic black sand beaches
  • Head to Skaftafell National Park and get adventurous with a hike to Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier
  • The aurora borealis is the best lightshow on Earth, and this trip is your ticket. Stay up late to see the northern sky dance with green light (subject to weather conditions and activity)

Itinerary

Day 1 Reykjavik

Hallo! Welcome to Iceland. The world's northernmost capital of Reykjavik lies just below the Arctic Circle. The city sees around four hours of sunlight a day in winter and 22 hours or more in summer. Surrounded by volcanic peaks and crystalline ocean, and boasting a vibrant arts and nightlife scene, Reykjavik's contrasts are utterly beguiling. Why not arrive early and head to the National Museum, which depicts the history of Iceland from the 9th century, when the first Vikings from mainland Scandinavia arrived and settled, to the present day, or join locals who gossip and chatter in the Laugardalslaug Geothermal Pool.

Day 2 Golden Circle / Hvolsvollur Area

Depart Reykjavik early this morning and follow the route of the 'Golden Circle'. Visit Þingvellir National Park, the site of Iceland's first parliament, founded in AD930, and a geological wonder where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart. If you notice a big ridge of water in the landscape, you’re probably looking at the Silfra fissure. Next, head to Iceland's Geysir geothermal area, where you'll see the Strokkur geyser shoot water 30 metres into the air. Be spellbound by the immense beauty and sheer power of the Gullfoss Waterfall, also know as Golden Falls, before continuing on to the Hvolsvollur Valley, where you'll spend the night on an Icelandic farm that has been converted into a guesthouse. Far away from the city lights, the guesthouse is an ideal Northern Lights base. If the skies are clear tonight, why not take a stroll out into the snow and look skywards for the dancing green lights.

Day 3 South Coast / Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Start the day with a trip to the eerily beautiful Skógafoss waterfall, one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland. Skógafoss is a giant of a waterfall, 25 metres wide and also dropping down 60 metres. You can get up close and feel its power, and also climb a (long) windy set of stairs up to a stunning viewpoint. On a sunny day you should be able to spot a rainbow or two in the spray. Continue along Iceland's South Shore to take in more of the country’s renowned natural wonders. From the stepping-stone rock formations of Reynisdrangar, the promontory of Dyrhólaey, and the night black sand beach of Reynisfjara, this is one of the country's most scenic regions. En route you will pass the lava of the Laki eruption of 1782 to 1783. In the afternoon, you will visit the famous Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, a stunning sea of floating icebergs whose blue contrast with the charcoal coloured sand of the beach. Stop for the night at a farm stay on the South Coast. Weather permitting, there will be another opportunity to step outside and witness the natural wonders of the Northern Lights tonight.

Day 4 Vatnajokull Glacier / Vik

Today you'll take a walk on Europe's biggest ice cap – Vatnajokull – which has around 30 glaciers flowing out from it. No experience is necessary to partake in the hike. It’s sobering to think that the glacier is retreating due to rising world temperatures, and in some years the glacier may be gone. Alternatively, if you would like to opt out, just embark on a hike to the glacier's tongue or return to the glacier lagoon at Jokulsarlon or Fjallsarlon. If you prefer a relaxing morning you can explore the surroundings of the farmstay and head to the Thorbergur Centre. Later on today, journey on to the black sand seaside town of Vik. With the sea on one side and high cliffs on the other, this dramatically positioned quaint little village is Iceland's most southerly mainland settlement.

Day 5 Reykjavik

This morning we make our way to the beautiful waterfall of Seljalandsfoss, and then back to Reykjavik. Upon arrival take a short guided walk of Reykjavik to get an enhanced appreciation of the city around its landmark attractions and points of interest. Visit the old harbour, the city center and the famous Hallgrimskirkja church. Iceland's capital has an eclectic arts and music scene, an abundance of quirky cafes and a laid-back vibe. Perhaps browse some of the city's great art galleries. If you haven't had enough of the Northern Lights yet, you could head out of town to chase them again this evening, or while away the hours with a soak in the geothermal waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. Whatever you choose, tonight perhaps gather together your fellow Icelandic adventurers and celebrate the end of this Northern Lights Escape.

Day 6 Reykjavik

Today is departure day and time to say 'sjaumst'. As there are no activities planned, you are able to depart the hotel at any time. Check out time is at midday. If you are departing later, you can arrange to store your luggage at the hotel. If you would like to stay longer, we are happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). Perhaps browse some of the city's great art galleries. If you feel like something more active, book yourself on a Silfra Fissure snorkelling adventure, where you’ll discover this underwater ridge with water visibility of up to 120 metres.

Overall I had a spectacular time on this trip. The scenery was unbelievable and the group was great. I was a bit underwhelmed by our guide - while he was super nice and very funny (loved his dry sense of humor!) he wasn't super engaging and didn't seem excited to be there. He was an Iceland local which I appreciated. There were few unscheduled stops, and his approach was to ask us what we wanted to do when of course we didn't really know.

Also, the itinerary made it seem like we'd have more options for meals (a plus for Intrepid travelers with differing budgets) when in reality this trip featured stays in remote guest houses where the only option was the guest house dinner. Again our guide didn't make clear that if you don't want to pay for the meal at the guest hours you MUST purchase in the supermarket prior. Budget was not my primary concern, but for those it is I think this is worth mentioning.

Unfortunately we didn't see the Northern Lights, but our guide was diligent in showing us the best spots and keeping us informed about the best times to check during the night.

I've wanted to visit Iceland for a long time and this really was such a unique time to go and I loved seeing the country. Can't wait to go back!

Quite simply, this was a once in a lifetime and truly amazing experience. The scenery, the food, the culture, the weather, all splendid! Our group were all fantastic, and we were expertly guided and supported by the entire Intrepid team (guides and porters), led by Parbati Joshi. If you ever get a chance, DO THIS TREK!

Amazing trip with the most phenomenal guides. Had not booked with Intrepid before but had been on other cycle tours before. Intrepid was exceptional... because of the personal touches of the guide team. Direct experience with communities and expert knowledge is all done with a light touch on top of the challenge of moving around the country safely and with great enthusiasm and happiness.
With Sri Lanka as our beautiful backdrop it might always be the case to have such an amazing time, but to come away with such understanding, knowledge and experience of history, flora, fauna, wildlife, custom, food, culture and politics is down to the incredible guide Sampath. If you book this trip and your guides are Sam and Kasun, you are very lucky - cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you

I requested a booking for a trip on the 17th January, and in the same day I was informed that there was no available places on that trip.
Even if the reservation was not confirmed, Intrepid still charged my credit card on the same day for 2.216€, for which I had to pay a commission from my bank.
I requested several times to have the money back in to my account, but today I still did not receive a refund.
It's not acceptable for Intrepid to keep the money so many days for a reservation that didn't happen.
I saw the opinions on the trips, and they are good, so I would recommend to make any reservation trough an operator that don't debit you credit card when they cannot confirm the reservation, such as Tour Radar.

Don’t Book with Intrepid. They’re sexist.

Intrepid clearly doesn’t care about their female customers. I did the trip between Bangkok and Bali. I’ve used them before and never had an issue. The guide on the first half was wonderful. The second half - Tantan - was terrible. From the get-go, he told us that he was on “probation” due to an incident with another female customer from a previous trip. He treated the women like second-class citizens and verbally complained about us. He never told us anything about his own country. On more than one occasion, women were separated from the group. He didn’t even realize that we weren’t with the group. And in one situation, it could have been dangerous. 

When FIVE women complained about this to Intrepid, we were told that he’s “trained and professional”. They gave us a brush off amount as compensation. And this man will still be allowed to lead tours after “retraining”. In the age of Me Too, I don’t know how a company still thinks it can treat female complaints like they’re unimportant. 

I’ve used this company many times in the past. I will NEVER use them again.

Guides

All group trips are accompanied by one of our group leaders. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. Intrepid endeavours to provide the services of an experienced leader however, due to the seasonality of travel, rare situations may arise where your leader is new to a particular region or training other group leaders. Your leader will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense, you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious, and social aspects. At Intrepid we aim to support local guides who have specialised knowledge of the regions we visit. If you are interested in delving deeper into the local culture at a specific site or location then your leader can recommend a local guide service in most of the main destinations of your trip. On this trip your group leader is also your driver, taking you from start to finish in a comfortable vehicle. All Intrepid group trips in Iceland are accompanied by one of our group leaders, who will also be the driver.
