Day 1 - Reykjavik
Your Go Get Lost Iceland adventure begins on the Seltjarnarnes peninsula in the city of Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital in the world. Our hotel is located at the center of Reykjavik, where we'll start the evening with our orientation party. After our orientation party, we stroll through the main pedestrian area to one of our favorite local restaurants for our opening nights meal. After our dinner we'll begin our stroll back toward our hotel taking in all the famous bars along the way. At this time of year it doesn't get dark until midnight in Iceland. For those so inclined, we might take some time to check a few of them out!
Day 2 - Reykjanes
This morning after breakfast we'll hop on our private coach for a scenic journey to the southern coast and the Reykjanes peninsula where we will begin to explore Iceland in 4 x 4’s, the best way to visit this rugged coastline. Spectacular mountain views, black sandy beaches, and mesmerizing cliffs make this first day a great beginning to your Iceland adventure. On our adventure, we'll visit some remote geothermal areas to understand how these Icelanders have adapted to their environment. We'll stand on both the European continent and on the North American continent as the 2 continental plates separate a couple of centimeters every year. After this exciting ride we will go to one of the local eateries and join the Icelanders for lunch. After lunch, we'll visit one of Icelands iconic waterfalls where it's possible to wander behind it for some incredible pictures. Before we go, our local guide will leave the rest of the crowd behind and take us to a hidden waterfall inside a nearby cave. If you're brave enough, you can join the guide for the short walk inside to witness an incredible sight. After this incredible day, we'll head to our farm house hotel where we'll settle in for the next three nights..
Day 3 - Bruarfoss and the Secret Lagoon
After breakfast this morning we'll hike to one of Iceland's most beautiful sites, Bruarfoss...the Blue Waterfall. Amazing that so few people ever visit this magical place, but then again it is not easy to find. The water here is so blue it's hard to capture the charm in pictures. Even the trek along the river to this wonderful place is a constant overload on the senses.
Later today we travel a short distance to the Secret Lagoon where the warm waters will sooth our tired muscles. After sinking into a totally relaxed stage, we return to our farmhouse for a home-cooked country dinner.
Day 4 - Valley of the Steam
Imagine hiking along a steaming hot river in the midst of the classic Icelandic landscape of the geothermal-rich Olfuss region. That's what we'll do today as we wander through the steam vents and bubbling mud cauldrons of the Reykjadalur Valley. As a reward for your efforts you can slide into the hot water and enjoy the views of this otherworldly place. Be prepared for the sights you will see here, people lying in the stream, many without swimsuits. Afterwards we will stop at a unique Icelandic lunch spot for a different kind of meal. The soil here is known to be some of the “hottest” in the country, and we’ll even witness one of the local restauranteurs baking their bread in the ground! In the afternoon we’ll have a fascinating tour of one of Iceland’s world-famous geothermal power plants to see how the entire city of Reykjavik is powered. The day isn't over yet, though....later this afternoon we'll have a chance to visit one of Iceland's most iconic and beloved sites, the Gullfoss Waterfall. Located in the Hvita Valley, the icy water of the Hvita river originates at the Langjokull glacier before cascading 105 feet down Gullfoss's two stages. Truly a magnificent site!
Day 5 - Stong and Gjain Hike
Our adventure today begins at the old Viking settlement of Stong, believed to have been buried under volcanic ash in 1104 following the eruption of the volcano Hekla. Our hike today will explore a breathtakingly beautiful place hidden away in the Þjórsárdalur valley upcountry in South-Iceland. Gjáin is a tiny valley that might be one of the most magically places you'll ever visit. This oasis is like potpourri to your visual senses, with tranquil water features and lush greens contrasting the rugged volcanic structures throughout. (The landscape is so unique that an episode of Game of Thrones was filmed here.) Our path winds across the surreal landscape providing stunning views of the countryside. Your tour leaders will take you along an ancient river to an incredibly beautiful and remote area in search of rare dual waterfalls. Once we arrive, you will quickly understand why the vikings settled here. The highlight of today's walk is also one of the most picturesque spots and arguably the most mesmerizing of any place we've been.
Day 6 - Fagradsalsfjall Volcano or Mt. Esja Hike
Normally on this day we have some exciting activities planned…a great hike and/or a visit to an iconic Icelandic spot. However, the Fagradalsfjall volcano is currently erupting, and the chance to hike to an erupting volcano is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, too good to pass up! If conditions permit we will attempt this walk this morning. Lunch will be at a nearby restaurant. Later we’ll travel a short distance to the Blue Lagoon where the warm waters will sooth our tired muscles. Afterward, we’ll make our way back to Reykjavik where you can explore and have a relaxing evening in town.
Day 7 - Go Get Lost Day
You'll have the day free to explore the area on your own. Reykjavik has plenty of interesting and exciting activities to occupy your day, your tour leaders can provide suggestions. Get Lost and have fun!
Tonight is our farewell dinner, and your guide will take you to one of their favorites! Maybe before heading out to dinner we will meet for a cocktail at one of the locals' favorite hangouts, always the best way to start the evening.
Day 8 - Faravel
Your Go Get Lost Iceland Explorer adventure will end at the hotel after breakfast this morning. Your guide can help you arrange transportation to the airport.
