Don´t forget to grab yourself a hot dog at the infamous hot dog stand “The Town´s Best”. Furthermore, make sure to check out Reykjavík’s flea market Kolaportið open on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, we also recommend visiting our National Museum where you can learn more about Iceland´s history from the Settlement to the present day.

Highlights:

  • Reykjavík City
  • Day 2 | Guided Reykjavik Tour and Whale Museum

    In the morning your guide will meet you and the rest of your group in your hotel. Your guide will show you the highlights of Reykjavík. This tour, and also all other tours in the next days, take place in an accessible minibus. This minibus has enough space and wheelchair users can easily enter and leave the bus on a ramp. On your tour you will visit the much photographed sun voyager, a sculpture designed by Jón Gunnar Árnason. It is located next to the sea side. Furthermore you will also have a look at the Concert Hall Harpa, a modern glass building opened in 2011. Another stop is at Perlan where you can enjoy the view over the whole city from the viewing deck (entrance included).

    In the afternoon,you will visit the Whales of Iceland Exhibition (included). This is the largest whale exhibition in Europe. There you can learn more about the world´s biggest mammals. The whales are presented in a unique and illustrative way. There are 23 life size whale models representing the 23 whale species found in Icelandic waters. Being able to be next to these models give you the true sense of size and grandeur of these giant mammals. You stay for a second night in Reykjavik.

    Day 3 | The Golden Circle and Volcanic Crater Kerið

    Today you are leaving the city to explore the wonderful country side of Iceland. In the morning your guide picks you up from your hotel. You start your day by driving to Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir, famous for its beauty and geological and historical value, was accepted as UNESCO’s heritage site in 2004. Your guide shows you the most beautiful places of the park. Later you will visit Strokkur. It is a fountain geyser and it is Iceland’s most impressive and famous geyser, erupting about every 4–8 minutes, sometimes up to 40 m high. A spectacle not to be missed! The geyser can easily be reached in a wheelchair. Next to the geyser is also an accessible restaurant where we recommend to stop for lunch (not included).

    In the afternoon your guide will show you Gullfoss, the “Golden Waterfall”. Wheelchair visitors have a very good view on the waterfall from the parking place. Furthermore there is also an accessible viewing platform available. On the way to your accommodation in the area of Selfoss you will also visit Kerið a picturesque volcanic crater lake. You stay for the night in a comfortable hotel in the Hella area.

    Day 4 | The South Coast of Iceland and LAVA Museum

    It’s time to travel further east along the beautiful south coast. On the way, you will visit the interesting LAVA Museum in Hvolsvöllur (entrance included). It is an interactive, high-tech educational exhibition depicting volcanic activity, earthquakes and the creation of Iceland over millions of years. The impressive Seljalandsfoss waterfall will be your next stop for the day. A wheelchair friendly path will take you closer to that picturesque waterfall. Continue to Skógar where you’ll find the picture perfect Skógafoss waterfall.

    Another highlight of the day is the charming village of Vík. This is Iceland´s most southerly village. It is the only seaside settlement in Iceland left without a harbor, due to natural circumstances. Once there, visit the black volcanic beach of Reynisfjara with a view of the Reynisdrangar ocean cliffs. The beach with its round shape stones is a small challenge for wheelchair users but you will definitely have a good view from the parking lot. Vík is the turning point and you drive back to your hotel in the area of Hella to stay there for the second night.

    Day 5 | The Volcanic Peninsula Reykjanes and Blue Lagoon

    Today you will visit the geothermal active peninsula Reykjanes. Your guide will show you two interesting geothermal areas (Seltún/Krýsuvík and Gunnuhver). There, boiling mud pools and colorful mountains can be found. Another highlight today is the so called bridge between continents. You have the chance to see one of the world’s major tectonic plate boundaries. Cross the small bridge which was built as a symbol of the connection between Europe and North America. This plate boundary lies across Iceland and is the reason why Iceland has a high concentration of active volcanoes. The latest volcanic eruption on Reykjanes was in the 13. Century and you will see many old lava fields covered with moss during your tour.

    You will also make a stop at the blue lagoon where you will relax in the milky blue water (comfort package included). The Blue Lagoon is easily accessible to everyone, containing an accessible changing room and a special wheelchair to enter the lagoon itself. The deepest part of Blue Lagoon is around 1.60m/5.2ft ft but most parts of the lagoon are far shallower. If you are not interested to swim in the lagoon, your guide will make a short tour with you to a small fishing town nearby. You can have a look at the small fishing boats in the harbor and there is also a nice café in the harbor area. In the late afternoon your whole group drives back to Reykjavik where you stay for the night.

    Day 6 | Free Day in Reykjavík

    Today you have a full free day in Reykjavik. We recommend to have a look at the program of Harpa Concert Hall. Eventually there is a show or concert you are interested in. We also recommend the guided tour in Harpa where you visit areas that are not open to general public. During this tour the guide will tell you some interesting stories about the construction of Harpa and the struggles during the economic crisis. You will also learn more about the state of the art techniques and hear some funny stories. You can also have a look at the Einar Jónsson Sculpture Garden next to the church (free entrance). Einar Jónsson is one of the most famous Icelandic artists and his bronze casts are mostly figurative sculptures which fuse classical art with northern myth. Stay for another night in Reykjavik.
