Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Upon arrival into Keflavík, pick up your hire car and drive to your hotel on the Golden Circle. On the way, explore the barren yet eerily beautiful volcanic wastelands of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Once you've checked into your hotel, hike into the Reykjadalur Valley to a hot spring river, where you can spend some time bathing and relaxing.

  • Explore the highlights of the Golden Circle today, including the iconic Geysir, the striking Þingvellir National Park and the enormous Gullfoss. You'll also take part in a private tour including lunch at Friðheimar tomato farm, and spend time bathing in the Secret Lagoon.

  • Today you'll drive to west Iceland, where you'll be based for the next couple of days. Join a shared tour which takes you exploring inside a tunnel in the vast Langjökull Glacier.

  • Spend the day exploring the fjords, villages, hot springs and farms of west Iceland. Later in the day, continue onto the north of Snæfellsnes Peninsula, where you'll join a 'Viking Sushi' tour. This takes you out on a fishing trawler to explore the myriad islands north of the peninsula, which teem with bird life and are surrounded by spectacular mountain views. On your way back to the mainland, you'll enjoy a freshly prepared sushi meal, trawled from the ocean floor and prepared on deck by the crew.

  • Explore the beauty and variety of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula today, whose volcano, glacier, black volcanic beaches, hot springs and sandy beaches have been called 'Iceland in miniature'. End the day in Reykjavík, where you'll return your hire car.

  • Embark on a privately guided food tour of Reykjavík, sampling some of the most common Icelandic dishes as you wander through the streets of capital on foot. The rest of the day is at your leisure to continue exploring Reykjavík's museums, shops, restaurants and attractions.

  • Your private driver will take you to the airport today, in time for your onward flight.
