Highlights

Blending lots of free time to explore the quirky Icelandic capital of Reykjavík with the very best of the country’s fascinating natural sights – the lava formations of Dimmuborgir, the stunning fjords and glaciers near Höfn, and the hot springs and waterfalls of the Golden Circle, just to name a few – you’ll be stunned at just how much amazingness fits into such a short stretch of time. The only thing missing? You.
