WHY ICELAND NOW?

Inspired by locals, embark on a six-day adventure — one day at the Blue Lagoon, two nights in Reykjavik, followed by a three-day private Landmannalaugar tour hosted by Extreme Iceland. Experience a totally new dimension of winter traveling as guests and staff blend together as one team, taking an active part in all the upcoming adventures. Come along on a journey of unforeseen challenges, bathe in the stunning geothermal natural pool in mid-winter, stay in a remote cabin with solar-powered heat and candlelight dinners, and enjoy being alone in nature, surrounded by stars and the dancing northern lights.

 

Yes … It will be cold.

Yes … It will be rugged.

Yes … It will be empowering!

ITINERARY:
Day 1  
  • Transport to the Blue Lagoon geothermal hotsprings, one of the top 20 wonders of the world.    

  • Stay as long as you want. Enjoy lunch or a massage. 

  • Transport to your hotel in the center of Reykjavik.  

  • Rest off your jet lag or explore walking the city on your own.

Day 2
  • Breakfast in local cafe.

  • Morning guided walk of Reykjavik Central

  • Lunch at the Icelandic Pub, Islinski Listinn Barinn

  • Afternoon free to roam, shop, or hang with locals

  • Optional late afternoon visit to the "Phallological Museum."

  • Casual Islandic dinner at “Osta Budin, a gourmand’s paradise 

Day 3
  • Head into the wilderness in Super Jeeps for a three-day private guided tour of Landmannalaugar in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights.

  • With no street lamps to guide and no traffic, pure natural wilderness greets you with its endless beauty.

  • Once on the snow, your guides let the air out of the tires until the Jeep floats over the snow like a boat on water.

  • Our experienced highland team is well-equipped to handle these rough conditions and find solutions on the spot. The journey itself is an exhilarating and empowering adventure!

  • Arrive at a large mountain lodge, heated by geothermal energy.

  • Kick back and savor the solitude, embracing the weather conditions of each moment 

  • Hike with your guide into the colorful rhyolite mountains formed by centuries of volcanic activities

  • Play on snowmobiles (conditions allowing) or take the Super Jeep for a spin.

  • Cook meals together in a large kitchen and enjoy a candlelit evening inside the lodge with starlight outside.

  • If luck has it, the Northern Lights will dance with the stars, turning the sky into a breathtaking spectacle.

  • But even if the Northern Lights do not appear, with no man-made lighting around, the total darkness creates a wonderfully soothing and peaceful environment.

  • Just a few steps from the mountain lodge is the real gem: a geothermal pool with temperatures around 36-40 degrees centigrade year around for your 24/7 bathing pleasure. 

Day 4
  • Head towards the valley of Thjorsardalur to the volcano, Hekla, one of Iceland's most active volcanoes, last erupting in 2000. 

  • Drive along the River Thjorsa and into the valley of Thjorsardalur to view the Hjalparfoss Waterfall - Helping Falls.

  • Enjoy a lunch break in Hrauneyjar Highland Center, the last outpost before entering the real highlands at Fjallabak Nature Reserve.

  • Drive through vast lava fields covered in snow, pass Lake Hnausapollur and Lake Ljotipollur, and stop at Lake Frostastadavatn. Here the surrounding mountains and strange rock formations reflect in the mirror-like surface of the lake.

  • Finally, we get to Landmannalaugar, most likely covered in snow. But the steep rhyolite mountains and rough lava fields are visible, showing the geothermal activity of the hot springs and naturally heated rivers criss-crossing the land. 

  • Relax in the geothermally heated pool while your driver-guide prepares dinner from premium Icelandic ingredients.

  • The Northern Lights may show up if the sky is clear. If they do not, it is still spectacular to view the stars shining bright so far from man-made light. 

  • Enjoy a fabulous candlelight dinner in the lodge and hopefully more Northern Lights.

Day 5
  • After breakfast,  head for the dam at Hrauneyjar for lunch.

  • From there, drive through Thjorsardalur on to the Golden Circle route and the majestic Gullfoss Falls (Golden Falls).

  • Next, come to the geothermal field of Geysir with hundreds of hot springs of all types – and a few geysers. 

  • View Geysir, also known as The Great Geyser, one of the most famous hot springs in the world.

  • Then head to Thingvellir, via Laugarvatn village. Sometimes called the heart of Iceland.

  • Weather circumstances, snow and road conditions all play a big role in the tour so travel time can vary greatly.

  • In the evening, you will be dropped at a comfortable guesthouse, located near the airport for your next day flight departures. 

  • Dinner on your own.
