Day 1 | Arrival in Reykjavik

Welcome to Iceland! Once you arrive in Keflavik International Airport, you will be welcomed by our private chauffeur who will transfer you to your accommodation in the centre of Reykjavik. We suggest that you use your free afternoon to explore the city or visit one of the museums of Reykjavik. After you get a first impression of the capital, you will spend the night in your accommodation for the next days, a wheelchair friendly hotel with spacious, handicap- accessible room and bathroom with roll in the shower.

Day 2 | Private Guided Golden Circle Tour

In the morning your private guide picks you up from your hotel and you start your day by driving to Þingvellir National park. The park is an excellent example of the uniqueness of the Icelandic Nature, which is why it was included in UNESCO´s World Heritage list in 2004 and has a lot to offer to its visitors.

The paths in Þingvellir are easily accessible and most of the places are easily reachable by wheelchair. Your guide will show you the best places and after exploring the treasures of the park, you will head south to see Geysir Spouting Spring. You will have the chance to see Strokkur, one the most famous geysers of Iceland. It erupts every 4–8 minutes at approximately 5 – 20 m high, sometimes even up to 40 m! The geyser is easily accessible.

Last stop of your Golden Circle tour is Gullfoss (the Golden Waterfall), which is undoubtedly the country’s most famous waterfall. On the way back to Reykjavík you visit Kerið an old volcano crater filled with water.

Tour duration

~ 8 hours

Driving distance

~ 240 km / 150 miles

Day 3 | Free day in Reykjavík

After a day full of images of the Icelandic nature, we suggest that you today explore Iceland’s biggest city and the world´s northernmost capital. Reykjavik is an exciting city with a rich cultural life. You should not miss the chance to visit some of the city´s landmarks, museums and exhibitions.

We recommend you to check out the old harbor of Reykjavík. There you will find museums such as Maritime Museum, the Northern Lights center and the Whales of Iceland exhibition. This area, which is quickly transforming into a modern city space, is also home to restaurants and cafes. A local favorite is ice cream shop Valdís, which makes fresh ice cream every morning and always offers new flavors.

Day 4 | Private Guided Reykjanes tour and the Blue Lagoon

Today a private guided tour to Reykjanes peninsula; an active geothermal area and a diamond in the rough, is planned for you. The first stop for the day will be Seltún (Krýsuvík) where boiling mud pools and colorful mountains can be found. Continuing the tour, you drive to the Gunnuhver geothermal area. There you can see the hot spring and boiling water as well as get an impression of the surroundings.

The next highlight of the tour is the 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.

Your last stop for today will be the unique Blue Lagoon. That is by far the most relaxing experience of your Icelandic holidays! Being perfectly accessible to everyone, the Blue Lagoon contains special changing rooms, a pool access lift and special wheelchairs for 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.  In the late afternoon your guide drives you back to the capital where you can enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants in the center and enjoy your last night in Iceland.
