Day 1. Arrival ľ Reykajvik City ľ Northern Lights Hunt
Following your arrival at the airport, you will take a comfortable bus ride, with Wi-Fi Internet connection on board, to your accommodation in Reykjavik or to a nearby drop off point.
You have the option of upgrading to a private door-to-door airport transfer. You can also receive and return the rental car at the airport if you prefer that.
Enjoy the rest of the day in Reykjavik, which offers a great variety of things to do. Included is a visit to the Northern Lights Center in Reykjavik where you can learn about the Northern lights and how to take good photographs of them, which might come in handy if you get to see them on your tour. See iconic buildings including the Perlan (the Pearl), the Al■ingish˙si (where the Icelandic parliament is housed), and HallgrÝmskirkja Church. If you don't have time to shop on Laugarvegur Street, don't worry; you can do that when you return from your adventure.

Day 2. Stunning Waterfalls ľ Black Beaches ľ Glaciers and Volcanoes
Pick up the car in the morning and visit Hverageri, a small town with many steaming vents and where hot spring water is used for heating greenhouses. Continue to the South Coast and pass the infamous Eyjafjallaj÷kull Glacier and a volcano that last erupted in 2010.
Stop at the inspiring waterfall Seljalandsfoss where in the summer one can take a scenic walk behind the falls. A little further east, stop at Skˇgafoss, another impressive waterfall with two majestic glaciers towering above it.
Visit the spectacular black beach at the Reynisdrangar Pinnacles on your way to the charming town of Vik, the southernmost town in the country.
The town of KirkjubŠjarklaustur waits across the Mřrdalssandur floodplains and Eldhraun, the most extensive lava field ever to flow on Earth in historical time. Stop by Fjarßrglj˙fur Canyon located just west from KirkjubŠjarklaustur and the Kirkjugˇlfi (the Church Floor), a protected natural monument just east of KirkjubŠjarklaustur. Kirkjugˇlfi's basalt columns have been eroded and shaped by wind and water, but they look man-made. After dinner, if weather conditions are right, go out on a hunt for the inspiring northern lights.

Day 3. Skaftafell National Park and the Glacial Lagoon
Continue across Skeidarßrsandur, a black sand desert, washed down by the numerous glacial rivers that originate at the nearby Vatnaj÷kull Glacier, the largest in Europe, and the place where a sub-glacial eruption took place in the GrÝmsv÷tn Volcano, beneath Vatnaj÷kull Icecap, in 2011. The powerful eruption quickly broke the ice cover of the glacier and began spewing ash into the air in a magnificent display.
Continue to Skaftafell National Park, an oasis at the foot of the glacier that is famous for its tranquil, but rugged natural beauty. We recommend an easy hike to Svartifoss, one of Icelandĺs most picturesque waterfalls.
Continue to J÷kulsarlˇn Glacial Lagoon, considered by many to be the greatest natural sight in the country and where huge icebergs float in the crystal clear lagoon. Head back to Hella town to rest up for Day 4's adventure. In the evening you can head out again to try your luck to see the northern lights.

Day 4. Volcanic Crater ľ Geysers ľ the Golden Waterfall ľ Ůingvellir National Park
Head inland and stop at the impressive Keri Volcanic Crater, then further inland to Faxi Waterfall. Continue on to see the famous Geysir and Strokkur Geysers. Strokkur is an active geyser that spouts boiling hot water 15 to 20 meters up every few minutes.
Continue a short distance to the majestic Gullfoss Waterfall, one of Icelandĺs largest and most beautiful waterfalls.
Then continue to Ůingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the place where the Icelandic Parliament was established in 930. It is located on the spot where two continental plates meet creating a fascinating rift valley. Ůingvellir is hauntingly beautiful despite its rugged lunar-like landscapes. Then, drive across Mosfellsheii Heath to ReykjavÝk.
