Day 1, Glacier Hike and South Coast
On this day we will see the best of the best in Iceland.
We start our adventure day along the south coast of Iceland. The first stop will be at a waterfall called Seljalandsfoss, here we can walk behind the waterfall. After this amazing stop we will head towards the glacier Sólheimajökull for our private glacier hike with your glacier guide. There we will put on our glacier equipment to explore dramatic landscape, a world of blue ice and if we are lucky we might see some of Iceland’s myths or the trolls, wobbling around there.
Other stops will be at Skógarfoss waterfall, beautiful Reynisfjara beach or the black-sand beach around Dyrhólaey promontory.
Day 2, Vatnajökull National Park and Glacier Lagoon
Our first stop will be at Fjaðrárgljúfur (Feather River Canyon) to do a short hike to stretch our legs and explore this magnificent canyon. Heading east to the largest national park of Iceland and in Western Europe, Vatnajökull national park is situated in the south east of Iceland. Here we will put our hiking boots on and do a hike to explore the dramatic landscape around the glacier. Our next stop will be the famous Glacier lagoon or the so called Jökulsárlón and is one of Iceland crown jewels. The beach next to it is called Diamond beach because of its sparkling icebergs sitting in the sand. After our enjoyable day we will head back to our accommodation for the night where we will have a local farmer´s BBQ in a traditional Icelandic way.
Day 3, Mountain Biking
Before we go out on our mountain bikes we fuel up and eat good breakfast to get our energy up. We explore our surroundings on our mountain bikes at our own pace. After a few viewing stops along the way, we will eventually arrive at the entrance to the biggest volcanic cave system in Europe, only recently discovered, created during the fissure line eruption of Laki volcano and craters in 1783-84. There we will gear-up with helmets, headlights and some warm clothing before we enter the caves and take an exhilarating subterranean adventure of exploration. After a refreshing cave mission and having eaten a tasty picnic lunch, we will then prepare ourselves for the bike ride. This will take us through the enormous lava flow of Laki, covered with thick and spongy moss, bright green coloured in sunshine, especially after a rainy day.
