Southern Iceland Summer Adventure with Ker & Downey
Proposed vacation in brief: 7 days/6 nights in Reykjavik, Thingvellir National Park, Landmannalaugar, and Reykjanesskagi
This Southern Iceland summer adventure is a way to discover the country’s famous natural landscapes. Our designers are at their best when planning a vacation for you. Read on to see what is possible.
Your journey begins in Reykjavik with a privately guided tour of the city. Later join a local chef for a private Icelandic cooking class and craft your own authentic dinner. On your third day in Iceland you will head to Thrihnukagigur Volcano. While here descend 400 feet “Into the Volcano” for an inside view of the crater.
Next, head off to the Golden Circle. Visit the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park. This means your day is full of waterfalls, geysers, and geological wonders. Your guide will also offer you a unique snorkeling experience at Silfra. After putting on your wet suit, enjoy the view of the continental plates that have shaped Iceland.
Back above water, your Southern Iceland Summer Adventure moves to Landmannalaugar. Climb into a Super-Jeep designed to navigate the terrain with ease. Set off across lava fields, black ash, and scoria deserts. In addition, you can take a dip in one of the natural pools in the area. Meanwhile, be on the look out for whales and puffins. ATV rides, horseback riding, and caving are also possible on this journey. You can choose your own adventure, and we will help you fill your day with excitement.
Finally, return to Reykjavik by way of Reykjanesskagi. This is a peninsula at the southwestern end of Iceland. A unique excursion takes you over the lava fields to see colorful soil deposits and towering cliffs. In contrast, take a moment to visit the clear waters of Kleifarvatn Lake. Especially enjoy the black sandy beaches as well as rugged coastline. The day ends at Blue Lagoon with a soak in its rich waters. It is the perfect way to relax after your adventure.
