Rental Car Pick-Up & Drive to Ósar/Sæberg
Today you will pick up your rental car at the Reykjavik airport upon arrival and begin your road trip adventure, ending your day in Ósar or Sæberg. You will pass through the picturesque old whaling town of Hvalfjörður, where experienced hikes can stop and trek to Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland at 210 m. You will also see the town of Reykholt, one of Iceland’s most important historical sites, and you’ll have the opportunity to see the amazing Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls, the Deildartunguhver hot springs, the Grábrókarhraun lava fields and the Grábrók crater. Overnight in Ósar or Sæberg.
Drive to Akureyri
Today you will continue your road trip adventure through Kolugljúfur, a gorge in the river Víðidalsá with many waterfalls. Continue through the small town of Blönduós, where all the necessary services are available: bank, shops, gas station, restaurants, etc. Opt to stop at Glaumbær, where there is an interesting open air and folk museum. This town is the perfect place to learn about daily Icelandic life. Pass the stunning Öxnadalur valley, the impressive Hraundrangi mountain range, and the Eyjafjörður fjord before ending the day in Akureyri, the “Capital of the North.”
Drive to Berg/Árbót
Pass Goðafoss, the “Waterfall of the Gods” pertinent to Icelandic folklore, and Mývatn, a beautiful shallow lake in a region of volcanic activity and geothermal heat. In Jarðböðin treat yourself to a soak in the naturally heated outdoor pools. Next see the Viti volcanic crater before passing through the otherworldly landscapes of Skútustaðir and Dimmuborgir, a valley filled with bizarre lava formations, caves, holes, and pillars on your way to your ending point in Berg or Árbót.
Drive to Seyðisfjörður/Reyðarfjörður
First you will drive through the town of Húsavík, where you can stop for some whale watching! There are tours available all over town (you’ll need at least 3 hours). Next you can see Ásbyrgi, a breathtaking U-shaped valley, before heading to Dettifoss, one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland and said to be the most powerful waterfall in Europe. Pass through incredible sceneries with lakes, valleys, and glacial rivers before ending for the day in Seyðisfjörður or Reyðarfjörður.
Drive to Höfn/Vagnsstaðir
Today you will see Fáskrúðsfjörður, Stöðvarfjörður, and the Berufjörður fjords. Make a stop in Djúpivogur, a beautiful little harbor village where you can take a boat trip to Papey Island. This is also a great stop for bird watchers. The highlight of today is breathtaking Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland (up to 900 m thick). Pass by numerous glacier tongues as you make your way to Höfn or Vagnsstaðir.
Drive to Vík/Skógar
Today is one of the best days of your road trip, which is saying a lot. Start your day with one of Iceland’s most iconic and incredible natural wonders, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where you can see immense floating pieces of glacial ice. On the other side of the highway is the amazing Diamond Beach, where huge pieces of ice come to rest after breaking off of the glacier and before floating off to sea. Next you will visit Skaftafell National Park, where you can hike to Svartifoss (the Black Waterfall), a lovely waterfall surrounded by picturesque basalt columns (1.5 hours). During the hike you get a great view over Skeiðarársandur and over to Hvannadalshnúkur. Here you can also walk to the glacier Skaftfellsjökull (please get information at the visitor centre). See Skeiðarársandur, the world’s largest black sand desert, the Eldhraun lava flow, and Núpsstaður church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before ending in Vík.
Return to Reykjavik Rental Car Return
Start your last day with a visit to Skógafoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. There is a walking path beside the waterfall to climb up the mountain for pristine views. Next see the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascade for an amazing experience. Next visit the famous Golden Triangle, comprised of the amazing Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir, the geyser that all geysers derive their name from, and otherworldly Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park.
All good things must end. After finishing your road trip adventure on such a high note, it’s time to return to Reykjavik and return your rental car at the airport.
