Iceland Adventure

An Exclusive Exerience

Tour 1: Iceland Adventure

This four day tour has it all; a small group, personal touch, local culture and what Iceland is most famous for – a variety of exotic landscapes. You will see hot springs, waterfalls, volcanoes, lava fields, black volcanic sand beaches along the south coast, glaciers, a glacier lagoon and two national parks; Thingvellir and Vatnajökull national parks. We finish the tour by relaxing on a late Sunday afternoon in the Blue Lagoon. Accommodation is in a small cosy guesthouse – www.hrifunesguesthouse.is, located in a unique and remote place in southern Iceland, and owned by your guide, Haukur, and his wife, Hadda, who is famous for her delicious homemade gourmet cooking. We will also visit a farm near the Hrífunes Guesthouse to learn about Icelandic agriculture and possibly get to taste some fresh produce. During this tour, you´ll have the option to take a walk on a glacier, and you can also get the adrenalin pumping through your body by going on an ATV quad bike tour, where you will drive along pseudo craters and learn about their existence.

This is a tour where you will see plenty of Iceland‘s beautiful nature, and also learn a little about the history and culture of Iceland as well as meet local people and enjoy nice homemade food.
