Join Go Get Lost as we journey to explore the wonders of Iceland! You’ll marvel as you trek across the dramatic landscape of volcanoes, geysers, and lava fields. You’ll savor some of the world’s freshest seafood, and you’ll soak in some of the most picturesque natural hot springs on the planet.

This tour is led by Steve and Joan Fafoglia, company founders and two of the most experienced group leaders to be found. They have the same travel bug that infects their entire family. Back in the 90’s, their love of wandering to the far corners, combined with Steve’s ties to his family’s homeland of Italy, led he and his brother Jeff to start a tour operations business aptly named “Lost in Italy”. “Go Get Lost” soon followed, and today, Steve and Joan have logged over two decades of leading adventurous travelers to their favorite destinations of Italy, Ireland, Iceland and Slovenia. In between shepherding his loyal flock around Europe, Steve can also be found leading groups beneath the waves as a scuba guide in exotic locales such as Bonaire, Cozumel, Palau, Galapagos, and the Philippines.

“I think it’s amazing to see the difference a trip to a foreign land can make in someone’s life. I never cease to appreciate how lucky I am to be a part of that.”

Itinerary

Day 1 - Reykjavik

Your Go Get Lost Iceland adventure begins this evening with an orientation party at your hotel in Reykjavik. Afterwards your guide will take you to a wonderful Welcome Dinner at one of Iceland’s best restaurants.

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. Before your day is over, we will visit two of Iceland’s iconic waterfalls before settling in to our farm house hotel for the next three days.

Day 3 - Stong

Our first hike begins today at the old Viking settlement of Stong. Winding across the surreal landscape, our path provides stunning views of the countryside, with incredible views around every bend. After finishing this wonderful walk, 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 - Gjain Walk

After breakfast this morning we explore a breathtakingly beautiful place hidden away in Þjórsárdalur valley upcountry in South-Iceland. It is called Gjáin and is for sure one of Iceland's pearls of nature. It is a delicate beauty, which Iceland has preserved in its pristine state. Imagine walking through a tiny valley with small picturesque waterfalls, clear, tranquil ponds and amazing delicate volcanic structures. (The landscape is so unique that an episode of Game of Thrones was filmed here.)

Day 5 - 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. Later in the day we'll return to Reykjavik to check into our 4 Star hotel, our home for the next few days. Maybe before heading out to dinner we will meet for a cocktail at one of the locals' favorite hangouts, the Big Labowski.

Day 6 - Go Get Lost Day

You'll have the day free to explore the area on your own. But this evening we'll take you to one of Iceland's most iconic sites – The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, an enchanting spot and one of Iceland's not-to-be-missed experiences.

Day 7 - Mt. Esja

Dramatically dominating the Reykjavík City skyline and providing a stunning backdrop to the capital area is the impressive Mount Esja, The trails here provide views that are absolutely spectacular. In clear weather you will see the scenic fjord and the aquamarine blue ocean bay with its small islands, Reykjavík city and the numerous mountains around you.
This evening we travel to our final dinner – in a brewery! Iceland is famous for its many home breweries and tonight will be a remarkable evening as you sample some of the best homebrew Iceland has to offer.
