Your Iceland luxury tour first begins in Reykjavik with a privately guided tour of the city. After you feast your eyes on the city’s architecture and sweeping coastal views, it’s time for a different feast. Join a local chef for a private Icelandic cooking class and craft your own authentic dinner. On your third day in Iceland, head to Thrihnukagigur volcano. If you’re brave enough, descend 400 feet “Into The Volcano” for an inside view of a crater few explorers get to see.

Next, continue your Southern Iceland luxury tour amid the magical landscape of the Golden Circle. UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park is your all-day playground full of waterfalls, geysers, and geological wonders. Your guide will also take you under the water for a unique snorkeling experience at Silfra. Don your wetsuit for an up-close view of the continental plates that have shaped Iceland.

Back above water, your Southern Iceland Summer Adventure then moves on to Landmannalaugar. Climb atop a Super Jeep specially designed to navigate the precarious terrain with ease. Set off across lava fields, black ash, and scoria deserts. You will also have the opportunity to take a dip in one of the natural pools here. Whale and puffin watching, ATV rides, horseback riding, and caving adventures are all possible here, too. Choose your own adventure, and your Ker & Downey designer will help you fill your day with excitement.

Blue Lagoon

Finally, conclude your Southern Iceland tour back to Reykjavik by way of Reykjanesskagi, a peninsula at the southwestern end of Iceland. A unique buggy excursion takes you over its lava fields to see colorful soil deposits, towering cliffs, Kleifarvatn Lake, black sandy beaches, and rugged coastline. Your Iceland luxury tour then culminates with an ultra-luxurious stay at The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon where you will enjoy a more secluded, private lagoon experience.
